V: Season 2, episode 2.
Wow, that was a whole lot of plot development in such a short period of time. Thank you, first three minutes of “Serpent’s Tooth.”
What we learned
Apparently, Anna locked her mother, Diana, deep under the V mothership nearly 15 years ago, when she decided that Diana’s excess of human emotion was compromising her ability to lead.
Also, the Vs are only on earth because their species is dying out and they need to breed with humans. However, human/alien hybrid babies will lack the Vs token undying devotion to their leader, unless Anna can figure out how to isolate and destroy their human emotion.
In addition, Earth is the only place the Vs can go to breed; all other planets are too far away. Anna is infertile now, but her daughter, Lisa, is just entering her fertility cycle, and is therefore the only hope for the V species to survive.
Finally, this seems to imply that Lisa’s often-referenced “mission” with Erica’s son, Tyler, is to mate with him. And to create a bunch of not-so-adorable lizard babies.
Get all that?
Good. Because not a whole lot else happened for the entire remaining 44 minutes of the episode. Read the rest of this entry »
