The positive: We see the actual alien overlords! They’re tall, humanoid, and are putting harnesses on skitters as well. That’s interesting, isn’t it?
The negative: I’m getting more bored of the show each week. The more the writers try to draw our attention towards the characters, the slower everything gets and the post-apocalyptic world seems just a bit less grave. We learn what happened to Weaver, see Karen again, and Pope figures out how to kill mechs. That’s all small stuff that would probably work well if the episode had more substance, but again, nothing really happened. The good thing is that Weaver is itching for a fight.
