Wow, the Espheni is Lexi’s father! What a reveal! Except, wasn’t that very, very strongly implied before anyway…? Like in Ann’s “dream”, where she saw him with some tentacle-tube sticking in her pregnant belly? Or all the times she said “it was you who did that to me”? I don’t know, but this surprise twist fell a bit short.
What else is new? The Volm are strategic masterminds. All they had to do to know every enemy’s position in the area was bringing down a single mech, and they never even considered or mentioned that until now? As a last resort? If this is something you can pull off with a barely armed, small force that is also on the run, why in the world haven’t they done this earlier? For dramatic effect?
On the Supemason front, absolutely nothing is new. As usual, the immortal genius got captured and outwitted the captors, with much humanity angst going around between Matt and Weaver.
Not much of a mid-season finale here, with a twist so predictable, it’s foreshadow could darken the sun.
