Falling Skies: Worlds Apart

Three months have passed since Tom Mason agreed to leave on an alien ship. Capt. Weaver still holds military command of the 2nd Mass, while Anne has become the group's lead doctor. For his part, Pope has assembled a group of rebellious renegades within the colony dubbed the 'Berserkers'. This new order is thrown into chaos when Tom suddenly returns without warning, to the shock and skepticism of his former comrades.

Recap

The episode begins with a harnessed Karen leading Tom into an alien spaceship. Cut to three months later; Pope, Dai, Anthony and Weaver lead a few aliens into a trap on the ground and Maggie, Ben and Hal shoot them from the top of a building. Anthony states that Pope enjoys shooting down these skitters as Pope instructs the team the order to take them down. The entire team is asked to stop firing to save the ammo. They are asked to vacate the location. But Ben sees one of them moving and he isn’t able to get a shot. He jumps of the building and takes it down with a knife. Just then Ben hears some noise and sees that there is one more alive. He shoots at it. When that skitter falls Ben sees his father, Tom behind it. But he is hit by Ben’s bullet. ..
