Karen Jolts Awake, And Pleads For Hal To Help Her.

Anne And Lourdes Cover Weaver With Blankets To Raise His Core Temperature. This Slows The Spread Of The Pathogens, But It Doesn’t Kill Them. Anne And Lourdes Think That If They Perform A Rarely Used Technique, It Will Disrupt The Growth Of The Pathogens.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Really Focused On  The Mystery Behind Ben And His Glowing Spikes. Tonight’s Episode Also Threw In A Huge Twist, By Bringing (Unharnessed) Karen Into The Show. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since I Watched The Series Premiere, Last Year. I’m Curious To See How The Rest Of The Season Plays Out, And I’m Excited To Hear That Falling Skies Has Officially Been Renewed For A Third Season. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8c. On TNT.
