One would think that after nearly 4 years of fighting against the Espheni, Mechs and Skitters that our heroes of the 2nd Mass would be up for any challenge. Yet Season 4 has introduced a few more curveballs and surprises in the ongoing fight to reclaim the planet.
In Season 4 of FALLING SKIES, our heroes face the biggest challenge yet: separation. The 2nd Mass was always strongest when they were all together, fighting the good fight together and knowing that they faced certain death together fueled their passion to fight to the bitter end against the Espheni and their minions. But Season 4 quickly scatters our heroes and they are left to wonder if their friends and family have survived on their own.
While at WonderCon 2014, stars Moon Bloodgood, Seychelle Gabriel, Sarah Carter and Doug Jones teased how their characters survive and what further surprises are in store. For one, baby Lexi is no longer a baby or even a young child anymore; her rapid-aging turns her into a young woman. Separated from her parents Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood), Lexi turns to Lourdes (Seychelle Gabriel) as her closest family, leaving Tom and Anne searching frantically for their daughter. Good fortune also reunites Maggie (Sarah Carter) and Ben (Connor Jessup), which leads to a romantic complication. Then as for Cochise and the Volm, they have bigger problems to deal with than the squabbles on Earth.
With such dramatic changes in store this season, fans are going to be startled to see how it all plays out. Will Lexi and her possible special powers be their savior? Will Tom and Anne adjust to having a full-grown daughter? Will Maggie let herself fall in love with Ben, or does Hal (Drew Roy) still hold her heart? And will the the Volm ever return to help the resistance again or shall the humans be left to their own devices once more?
All these questions and more will be answered, albeit in the most unexpected fashion. So be sure to tune in for the Season 4 premiere of FALLING SKIES on Sunday, June 22nd at 9:00 p.m. on TNT.
