After a break, we see Weaver coming to in a truck. The comrade beside him is dead and Weaver looks a little worse for the wear. Tom pops in and Weaver is quite surprised to see him. Tom explains that they held off the Mech attack at the school, and Weaver tells him that as soon as the fighters got near the structure's leg a ship came in and took them out. I can't believe that we didn't see anything of the attempted attack! I know the show probably burned through its special effects budget, but damn. Weaver adds that the bomb is no good now. Tom gazes upwards and says that he thinks the ships are being called home since the 2nd Mass jammed their frequency and messed up their communications. Weaver thinks this is why the streets are deserted, and Tom says that the aliens could be confused or a little afraid. And it's all due to an old dude with a radio from 1950.
Tom takes a long look at the RPG, and Weaver asks what he's thinking. Tom is thinking that he's close enough to take a shot. Isn't that something that he might want to leave to a pro? Or, in the absence of a pro, Weaver? Weaver points out that the entire U.S. military couldn't make a dent in the alien ships when they attacked, and so the chances for success are slim. But, Tom points out, so were their chances of surviving thus far. The normally serious Tom all of a sudden seems to think he's playing a 3D version of Asteroids, and sensing his boyish enthusiasm, Weaver tells him to go ahead. Tom fires a shot, which hits one of the spacecrafts. Convenient! Said spacecraft then flies directly into one arm of the alien structure and lights it on fire. Convenient! Not that this show has ever been overly concerned with plausibility, but he might as well have flung an Angry Bird to take the whole thing down. This finale is the worst. Weaver's response is, of course, "Good shot." It is a mystery to me why no alien bombs them to death as they stand there chuckling over their good fortune.
