Whether you’re a skitter, mech, harnessed, or human, the Falling Skies panel at San Diego’s Comic Con had a little something for everyone. Joined by members of the cast, and show runner Remi Aubuchon, the audience was treated to several never before seen clips of upcoming episodes, and showered with spoilers for the current season.Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Carter, and Connor Jessup were all present, as well as a secret guest who showed up later on during the panel. Will Wheaton hosted the panel.
There are many things to be looking forward to in the current season. One of the first topics covered was how Ann (Moon Bloodgood) and Tom’s (Noah Wyle) relationship would evolve during this season. Moon responded that their relationship will be consummated.Another relationship discussed was Hal and Maggie, which has just recently seen some action in the previous episode.This discussion lead to a big reveal on a character who is coming back, and beware, it is kind of a major spoiler.
Karen is coming back, unharnessed! Jessy Schram was a surprise guest on the panel after the audience was treated to a clip showing Hal finding her character, Karen, barely alive and mysteriously unharnessed. This new development, the actors said, would cause another issue is the issue-laden relationship of Hal and Maggie. Sarah Carter (Maggie) said that Maggie will step back and see what happens when Karen comes back to the second militia.
The season will continue to be about the second militia and their journey to Charleston, South Carolina, where there is supposedly a safe haven and a large number of humans. It was revealed in the panel that when they reach Charleston, there will be a person that Tom knows from his past. This person will be played by Lost favorite Terry O’Quinn.
One last tidbit was teased to the audience. There is a major character death coming up this season. Anyone want to hazard a guess who the show is going to lose? The good news is, fans are getting another season, as Falling Skieswas renewed for a third!
