SPOILERS FOR THE RECENT EPISODES IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THEM!

So... are Anne and mutant-alien-baby really dead? I find it hard to believe we got dragged onto that plot thread only to have it cut short so abruptly. Also, I can't find anything suggesting that Moon Bloodgood is leaving the show, only that she's on maternity leave for now...

Other than making Tom Mason hulk out and have anger management issues, their supposed deaths have no plot usefulness. And really, Tom, they were taken by ALIENS: why didn't you check to make sure they were dead, instead of taking alien-Karen-hybrid's word for it? That membrane could just have them in stasis or something; it's not necessarily a body bag, per se...

Otherwise, it was good to see Lourdes outed as the mole, though again I wonder if she was the only one... if this show is starting to play it smart, we'll find another person is a mole (I have issues with believing Lourdes could get all the way over to the Volm weapon without being noticed... my money is still on the Prez...). Ben Mason still excels as the strongest member of the Mason family, having come to terms with who and what he is, and dispensing wisdom and common sense when everybody else is getting nutty.

So, Niners... thoughts on this?
