I'm surprised they're not eating CGI.

My wife was wondering why they didn't have any security cameras in the Egg room?

My response: Anna's a very bad parent. She physically abuses her elder daughter (Lisa), so it shouldn't surprise us that she doesn't have a baby monitor!

Any monitor could be intercepted by the 5th column, this is why she chose no monitor, so no one could look it up.

I don't think they have any monitors anywhere on any ship. Why would they need them when according to Anna all is "bliss"......

Otherwise Joshua would have been caught a long time ago.

And it looks like Anna just kicked up global warming a notch or two.

I'm glad this season is out of the way. It's fighting time now.

And her scream at the end. Yikes!! Marcus was a brave lizard to tell her she was feeling emotions. He's lucky she didn't rip his head off and eat it.

So, Erica manages to destroy the egg chamber, Chad gets into the experimentation room apparently unnoticed, Lisa helps Joshua escape from the medical bay... man, security on the V ship must be really crappy!

Since it's a reboot, there aren't any red shirts to kill off. So they go for incompetence instead.

I really liked this episode, it had everything the rest of the season didn't, and a lot of stuff happened, no filler here, good stuff, i wish every ep could be this good.

I assume Anna is disrupting all photosynthesis on the planet (or, at the very least, the planet's average temperature). It could be some sort of terraforming. Though, the word "terraform" doesn't really fit exactly (as they're not making a planet more Earth/Terra-like). They could also just be trying to mess up the planet for humans (as a means for eradication or just control--becoming the only source of life-sustaining techniques).

Question: Didn't Anna have some sort of video recording of a V blowing up part of a ship? Or was that just a misleading scene? I'm obviously asking because the lack of cameras (in medical bay and, as mentioned, the incubating chamber) is a little weird (given the paranoia about the fifth column).

I agree. It was a rare winner for the V writers. Though, I think the pastor's speech was a bit uncomfortably worded and timed.

Also, we're back to being even more confused over Anna and V emotions (at least, I am).
