    It was a couple days ago, and this is the dedicated thread for the show. Anything already broadcast is fair game.

    Well then Vance appears to be dead. Anyone know who the girl was in the little boys calling at the end.

    why?? he is not important enough to fake his death, nor does that fit any story possibility... and if his body was missing, they would have said he was missing and not dead...

    Just a feeling.
    You never see his body. They are going by what was told to them (by the government that was just hiding people)
    He was headed to the hospital "oh sorry he died"
    Wont surprise me at all if he pops up later in the show. (not this season)

    Being held & questioned in secret? No one looking for him because he is allegedly dead.

    I have watched enough tv to know you may be right. But I really hope not. This would be way too forced. Again, he is not important enough for us viewers to even care that he died. So basically the writers would just be pissing us off, if they bring him back.

    What is this black ops helicopter angle about ? Not sure I heard it right. They may not have said it.

    the major was on it previously, so they were trying to track who was on it at that time.

    and then they found out that the black ops copter is now on its way to NYC. Presumably for Ben.

    Do they realize that a Major is not a super-high rank? Why not use a General or at least Colonel?

    well I am not a black ops kinda guy, but a Black ops major isnt answering to Generals, except the one that runs the whole thing.
    having a Colonel or General running around doing the dirty work might be bit to high profile to keep secret. besides by the time they reach General status, they usually have underlings doing the dirty work so they have deniable culpability.

    Good explanation. To add to it, if they concentrate on a Major this season, they can target the General in a future season.

    This show might be getting too weird for me.

    At least we know who the major is now.

    Yep. I’ve never really been into Sci Fi things but I got into this. It’s a little over my head I think. After every episode I have to ask questions of what the hell happened. They didn’t even mention the Pilot and whether the plane was really shot down or not this week ( unless I missed it).

    Nope.

    Nothing. Maybe because the pilot will come back.

    Or it’s just leaving more questions for later
