The aliens are coming – back. The new sci-fi drama V is set to return March 30 after a four-month hiatus. And, from the looks of things, it’s off to a bang.
Yep, that’s Elizabeth Mitchell
as FBI Agent Erica doing what she does best – being tough. When last we
saw the gang, the gorgeous V leader Anna (played by the lovely and
serene Morena Baccarin) had just dosed all her followers with some bliss while an armada of spacecrafts approached our planet.
[WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD]
ABC has released a synopsis and new stills from the show’s return episode, titled “Welcome to the War.” The synopsis:
As the story continues, Erica finds her life in danger when she’s attacked
at home; a dangerous new member is recruited for the Resistance, as the
Visitors shore up their defenses; Anna wonders why Chad hasn’t followed
up on his diagnosed aneurysm; and Ryan’s concern grows over Val’s
“abnormal” pregnancy, on the riveting return of V.
Well, they definitely weren’t kidding about Erica’s life being in danger. She
appears to be running for her life from Mr. Clean’s homely, unfriendly
cousin – or an alien, it’s probably an alien.
So now the only question is what works better on baldy? A gun or a frying pan?
Erica’s fight, no other stills from the episode have been released yet.
But, in case you’d forgotten why all of humanity had decided it was OK
to open up diplomatic relationships with the Vs, this is what their
leader, Anna, looks like.
That whole “Take me to your leader”-thing is really starting to make sense.
The series aired just four episodes before its long break. It’s a risky
strategy; there is no assurance the audience will come back. The show
has been building to a slow simmer so far. I wish the pacing was a
little brisker. But the premise and the cast are still strong enough to
bring me back – at least for a little while. Though, if we have to make
a sacrificial offering to the Vs, may I suggest Erica’s teenage son?
Puppy love and alien invasions do not mix well.
V returns at 10 p.m. March 30 on ABC. So, will you be watching? And, I’m serious, who do I talk about killing off the boy?
