There's never a plan B with these people, no wonder the Raps are winning the war. Noa could have at least left some verbal instructions in case she didn't make it, but I'm sure the thought that she could be killed never crossed her mind. Speaking of Plan B's, I would think that Charlie is much more capable than Bram in leading the family in survival tactics. First thing Bram thought of was to run to family (Maddie).

Re: Colony - USA Thursday

Eliminating a block at a time shows that the aliens value human life exactly zero. LA won;t be the first block to get offed.

And it amazes me how many humans are still willing to be complicit in keeping others down so they can live well until they die themselves.

At some point, the real resistance will begin. But by then, there may not be enough people to make it count.

Re: Colony - USA Thursday

I've said it more than once, but this has been a great 2nd season.

The overall arc is constantly being moved forward, then they interject these smaller tangents throughout the season.

We definitely called Maddie's predicament as it came to fruition. Nolan came to the conclusion he could replace her bed and in life. Curious what's going to happen to Hudson? She's going to force Katie to go after him, watch.

Oh, and speaking of Nolan Burgress...Shipped right-off to the "factory". I guess that'll be the last time we'll see Adrian Pasdar too.

I tell you guys, I was waiting for Bram to turn on his family. I expected him to go running to the "Red Hand" (Karen) and inform them of the plan. I guess I'm sorry I doubted him.

Can't believe Laura Innes (Karen) got her paycheck that early. I thought she'd be around at least until the season finale.

Oh, and why didn't she destroy the gauntlet? That was her personality. If she couldn't control it, why help out another "Resistance" cell. I expected "it" to be on fire once the Team made it upstairs. Especially since she knew who was coming for it.

Remember, they only had four members of their Team. Couldn't leave anyone behind.

I'm truly glad both Broussard and Will shared their experience. How many times have we seen situations like that, and one hold out from the other.

But, Katie came to the same conclusion as we did. They're on the "List"! Now, I'm really curious to know what you have to do to get on that list.

I was so surprised Helena didn't let Snyder know about the order. I mean, she saved him from the camp right before it was eliminated, why turn on him now? Especially since he got the goods on both Nolan and Proxy Alcala.

Am I the only one who thinks once he knows, he's going to find Will and expect a favor in return? Snyder saved both Will's like as well as Bram's.

Lets all hope Mr. Bill never decides to run for Proxy of the L.A. block. Poor Bram!

What do they do with the gauntlet now? Will made the same point, and then Katie mentioned they have no contacts out of the bloc.

But I was right about them having a "Rap" traitor. Looking forward to our first viewing of one of the aliens.

It makes me wonder if TPTB want us viewers to not value humans much...Not a point of view, I'd agree with, btw!

Hodge, I'm wondering if the rescue of Hudson will involve Snyder in some way. I have a feeling he's going to make an escape with the Bowmans and Broussard. (Maybe Morgan will make it out, too.) Though that will defuse some of the tension between alphas Will and Broussard, so maybe not. (The actress playing Katie must be having Walking Dead Shane vs. Rick flashbacks about now.)

Yeah, I can't believe Noa didn't leave contact info behind somewhere. I have to admit to suspicions about whether there really is a turncoat Rap with her people if she's selfish enough to have not left a message.Check her copy of Catch 22, Will!

Re: Colony - USA Thursday

One of the big mysteries to me now is why are Will and Broussard being protected by the aliens? What is is about them that the aliens need? Military backgrounds? Physical abilities? THey were singled out and targeted for a reason, and I wonder what that reason is now, and how they can leverage it to further protect themselves, and family, etc.

Also, now that Adrian Pasdar was sent to the factory, maybe we will finally get a look at what it really is. Obviously, the name implies a work camp where something is being made. The question still is what. Need to find that out soon. I am guessing weapons as it is highly radioactive and kills works off quickly. But maybe it is ships with nuclear tech. I dunno.

Re: Colony - USA Thursday

Didn't we get a glimpse of the factory interior and a view of the Earth in one of the episodes? I don't remember which one, but the Factory is apparently on the Moon. Of course they'll Sci-fi it up and magically have Earth-like artificial gravity. Why not, they're aliens?

If no humans are left on the planet, why do they need weapons? Maybe they are building terraforming equipment, but why couldn't they build them on the Earth? Some specific minerals on the Moon?

Maybe Morgan can upload a virus to the Mothership and take em out.

Yes, in season one when Will's friend who helped him is sent to the factory.


(I'm still bugged by the fact this is called Colony. On the surface, it just doesn't fit the definition and that bothers me.)

Pi-o-my, Snyder is like a roach. He'll be the only thing that survives the complete annihilation of the planet.

And now, since Helena is keeping the death-clock to herself, he'll definitely hitch a ride with the Bowman's et al.

You know, we didn't comment on how sad it looked watching Hudson's mom walk thru the barricades guarding the Green Zone. Where is she going? How long will it take to find Katie and the others? And, once she finds them, will she turn them in to gain favor with the Greatest Day's?

I agree Lawboy, this is the "mystery of mysteries"!

Sandi, you know what I'd like to see? A screencap of that damn list? I thought I saw my name. Again, because I live in the L.A. bloc, this info would be valuable. Plus, if TPTB (Mrs. Hodgepodge) isn't on it, I'll have to make other arrangements.

Wasn't it the Pilot, or was it the 2nd episode?

You know Mr. Bill, I still think they're manufacturing something that will make Earth viable for them. Whether that's atmosphere, changing the topography of the planet so they can adapt it to their diets. Something!

You've been watching to many SyFy movies. Independence Day!

If you look at it from the Aliens POV, it makes perfect sense.

What list are you referring to?

I don't see how.
Quote:
col·o·ny
ˈkälənē/Submit
noun
1.
a country or area under the full or partial political control of another country, typically a distant one, and occupied by settlers from that country.
synonyms: settlement, dependency, protectorate, satellite, territory, outpost, province
"a French colony"
2.
a group of people of one nationality or ethnic group living in a foreign city or country. source
I haven't seen any aliens occupying any areas of earth shown to us -- certainly not the LA Bloc.

Remember in the episode, "The Garden of Beasts", Maddie setup her sister?

Anyway, while escaping, Will jumped into a truck with a screen showing his name and his C02 tolerances. That's the cap I'd like.

They have to "literally" clean house. Eliminate all the roaches (humans) and make it livable for their kind.

Then, they'll be able to turn Earth into a "theme park" colony, where the Aliens can bring the young-ones for vacation.
