Bring on the Hiatus!!

Well, here we are again. A long nine months until we get to the FINAL season of Falling Skies. As frustrating as this past season was I’m still not looking forward to saying goodbye to many of the characters, especially not Hal Mason. But, we have a full year before we have to cross that bridge so let’s tackle this hiatus!

I don’t have any filler or countdown projects planned for the hiatus. But I will continue to post updates and tweets from cast, crew and the like.

Is there anything else you want to see here during the hiatus?

Any countdowns or fillers you want?

Let me know and no matter what, I’ll be here if you want to talk about Falling Skies or just life in general.

beating-of-your-heart said: even as a hades shipper, i can brining ben into the mix was the stupidest thin that could have been done because now they're in a serious situation. the love triangle can only be solved by three options: de-harness maggie but that will kill her, keep ben away from her but that means keeping him away from his family which means splitting the mason boys up so that won't happen, or breaking hal and maggie up - it's clear they're trying to avoid that. ...WHAT PURPOSE DOES THE TRIANGLE BRING?!

It was a tough season for Hades shippers and I truly am sorry.

A lot of people speculated at the beginning of the season that the love triangle would be important and have a point…I’m still looking for it!! It was completely unnecessary in my opinion. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if they had shown Ben and Maggie building a brother/sister relationship or, God forbid, have Deni help Maggie and show some strong female bonding. 

I don’t think those are the only three options for solving the “love” triangle. I think the triangle will continue because of those reasons but they can squash the “love” part of it pretty easily:

1- Teen “love” and infatuation are generally short-lived and Ben’s feelings could easily fade or transfer to someone who actually returns his feelings.

2- Ben does realize that Maggie isn’t responding to him but is responding because of him. He has outright said that Maggie’s behavior is because of the spikes. So, really, Ben being a good person wouldn’t actually pursue that. If he does decide to use that connection to his advantage he is going to look like a sexual predator.

3- If Maggie does end up with Ben she will spend the rest of her life wondering if she does actually love him or if it was a result of the spikes. It would be a relationship built on manipulation and mistrust. Even if it is unintentional it’s no way to live.

I honestly don’t know how this thing is going to end. They have missed out on some great opportunities to dig into Maggie’s dark past, what with being raped and losing her sense of self to drugs and prison, and I don’t foresee them doing that now. 

If the show actually wanted to delve into the psyche of what is going on it could be a good story line with some great character development. As it is right now, the only character really being explored is Hal. They showed Maggie dealing with the spikes for all of two minutes and they really haven’t dug into why Ben is behaving the way he is. 

Sadly, I don’t have any faith whatsoever that they will properly explore these characters with this. And with next season being the final season they are going to have to clean the show up and give the characters solid futures (even if those futures include death) and right now I see that closure including a positive resolution for Hal and Maggie with Ben finding his own future, maybe as an advocate and fighter for deharnessed humans.

I’ve had that discussion with other people and we’ve agreed that it isn’t totally unlikely. The only reason I don’t think they will is because this is a Spielberg/Amblin show and they like to keep the family alive and together so I’m starting to really doubt the death of a Mason. But don’t hold me to that :) I REALLY want to see them have a future together. It’s been a long battle for them with so many people and things getting in their way. I’d like to see them free of interference and just happy and in love. It would be the ideal ending for both of their characters IMO.

I agree with this cause they have had such a long battle. I want the final episode ever to end with us seeing the aliens have been killed and it’s a few years down the road. Everyone is getting back to normal and happy. Hal and Maggie are together and either engaged or married and maybe a little one on the way. I would love for that ending of some kind with everyone happy and seeing how they will go.

Yes! All the yes!! I think they, and us fans, have earned it!! They do love each other and they should be together and happy!

and considering the battle Maggie has had with cancer, not being able to walk, and almost dying, and so on she doesn’t need to die. Just let Halgie be happy and give us this. I want it end with a so many years later not a huge time jump but a small one so we can see what everyone is doing and fixing the world up.

Maggie’s life has been one big fight. And Hal’s life has been the loss of one important woman after another. Maggie needs the chance to stop fighting and actually LIVE and Hal needs to be able to hold onto a woman that he loves without fear of losing them. If it doesn’t end with them happy together then this show is more f*cked up then we thought it was during 407-410 Lol!! I want the flash-forward too. I’m scared they won’t end this properly so people need to start writing fanfiction to give us what we want XD

Anonymous said: do you think the love triangle is going to continue in season five? it seems like it is.

I don’t know for sure but I don’t think it will continue in the way it did this season. I think the season will open with some questions about Hal and Maggie’s relationship but I think it will be cleaned up. And I think Ben and Maggie won’t be developed any further. They have a connection and they have Hal so they will have a relationship but I don’t think it will be a “love” relationship. I have a couple of reasons for thinking this; First, Hal and Maggie had a little talk about not losing hope and I think that was a little hint/message (probably just to me but I’ll take it XD) Second, the fan and critic response to the triangle was, in HUGE part, negative and I am sure that the show runners and producers took note. I know the actors did. Last, it’s the final season and they have been building Hal and Maggie’s relationship since the first season. For them to just completely disregard that, as they are wrapping up character stories and creating futures, would be strange and wrong. Maggie loves Hal and Hal loves Maggie, there is really no question about that, so I feel like they will definitely have a future together.

Mason Family - Space Oddity

tom ALWAYS has questionable taste but aliens man /shudders

Tom sees weird alien creature…

The fandom (nikola) reacts…

So, we can all agree, if they would just get rid of episodes 7-10 it would have been a perfect season!

I love Hal Mason more and more with each passing second!!

I’m just not sure how to respond to Tom and the pretty obvs alien silhouette thing. “you’re beautiful” Tom Tom u ok?

Different strokes for different folks lol ;)

But seriously…how long has it been for him and Anne? Two days?
