A Skitter slowly approaches and talks to Clayton through Megan. She says, "You're late." Who knew Skitters were so freaking punctual? Clayton asks if Megan/the Skitter has to be somewhere, and she replies in the affirmative before asking, "How many did you get?" Yes, bitches, this is happening. Clayton just says, "Enough." Megan confirms the plan that Clayton will bring more in two days, and Clayton says, "That's the deal." The deal with the devil alien overlord! In good news, maybe we'll finally get rid of Lourdes and Matt. The Skitter team heads off, with the Skitter carrying Eli in its arms. That kid is going to get so slimy. Also, the Skitters are surprisingly flat-footed! We really do learn new things about them every week.
But wait! There's MORE! I know, people, I know. Clayton enters a barn, and looks down upon a grown adult human who is chained to a table. He says that it turns out the captive wasn't lying after all -- there were a lot of kids in that school, even though Clayton half-expected to find the place empty. The human, who has been face-down since we first saw him, turns his head toward Clayton. It's POPE! I really hoped his inevitable return would be a bit more triumphant. But yes, Pope totally sold out all the kids of the 2nd Mass. Clayton says, "I knew it was a good idea to keep you alive," as Pope's head trembles with rage. Nobody talks about being thankful for anything. Now that's an ending!
Next time: With any luck, Matt and Lourdes will be the first two human sacrifices from the Second Mass!
