    Anyone else think Ben was abducted during his "sleepwalking" episodes?

    I really loved how they dealt with D'Arcy's initial recovery. It's good to have friends who are more than family.

    I'm looking forward to more revelations from The Message and Peter's son. I can't believe it's the finale already next week!

    Got a belly laugh from their playing Neil Diamond's "HeartLight" during Harry's bonding scene. :lol:

    We're still loving the show, but I admit I'm a little fuzzy on whether the Evil Corporation that polluted the water and had Dr. Hodges killed are connected to the Evil Aliens or not. Or are these two separate conspiracies?

    I don't think we know yet.

    They seem to be two separate conspiracies at the moment, but I guess a connection wouldn't be completely out of left field.

    That was a great episode.
    While I am disappointed they killed Pete, having die protecting his son, was the perfect way for him to go.
    I loved Harry bonding with the baby.
    That was a nice way to tie up the resort storyline.
    Everybody coming together for Ben at the end was really nice.
    I'm curious if we're going to get to find out what the rest of the message from Future Harry is.
    That thought definitely crossed my mind.

    Just a wild guess on my part but suppose:

    Ben's wife doesn't want the Resort. That would influence Ben's decision to also go against the resort.
    If the Greys want the resort for a base of operations, they abduct Ben while he is sleeping in order to manipulate him and ensure he remains in favor of the resort.
    If we find out the NYC bad guys are being used by the Greys to help in construction of the base.

    That would link the Resort, the Grey Aliens and NYC bad guys.

    I thought for sure that the New York guys and the Resort would be connected. It didn't occur to me that the bad guy aliens would be in on it too. But I'd be ok with the Resort storyline ending.

    For a guy who wants everybody to love him, it was a weird of the Mayor to constantly be pushing this thing that the whole town was against.

    "The doors were unlocked. I will send you a bill."

    :guffaw:

    Deputy Baker's video talking about her alien encounter when she was younger. Maybe she saw the Greys release Ben when he thought he was 'sleep walking' and she found him on the porch sleeping with her cat.

    I thought at first the alien encounter videos were commercials, and was going to 30 second skip, because they started just before the commercial break, but I saw the SYFY 30 watermark in the lower left of the screen. The watermark doesn't show up during SYFY commercials.

    Silly Robert! Should've stayed with Harry!

    I'm glad D'Arcy knows the truth now.

    I assume the babies are used to create hybrids. Perhaps Robert is a hybrid?

    This was terrific, though quite frankly I completely lost it at Sheriff Mike's "hooker jail," followed up almost immediately by "I want to respect them hard workin' hoes." Of course, later he would claim the moon was man made, and then look up at the sky and say "that's a lot of drywall."

    "Moon titties" didn't get missed by me, either.

    This episode had far snappier and cracklier dialogue, and I loved it. All of the characters have just melded together to the point where all of it feels so plausible to me that this could really exist somewhere in the US.

    Also, I had a feeling Ben was being abducted. It was too convenient that he would sleepwalk as a kid and now suddenly it was back. The baby thing caught me off guard, although I guess you could say it was lampshaded by the alien tracker earlier in the season.

    I can't wait to see how this wraps up because it's been a banger of a season.

    Same here. The first interviewee was credited as something like "President of Dark Horse Media" or something. Don't know if that was an actual employee of Dark Horse or not but it was a cool connection to the RA comic.

    I noticed that the short promo before the episode started said it was the mid-season finale but I thought this was the season finale. Was that an error on the Scifi Network's part?

    He was. In fact, aside from Liv, everyone seen in the interview segments were people playing themselves.
    Yes, this is indeed the season finale.

    "You're a dinosaur? That explains so much."
    "Dinosaur?! I'm an alien!"
    "Eh, same diff."
