Joshua joins Anna in the incubation room, where the queen egg is growing so quickly it's only a few days from hatching. I swear, sometimes I think the biology source text for this show is Class of Nuke 'Em High. Anna asks whether Joshua has had a chance to test Lisa's loyalty. "I've seen no signs to indicate that she's any risk to you," Joshua says. Anna's glad to hear it, and it's a lucky thing that she has her back to Joshua so she couldn't see the dramatically tight close-up on Joshua's face when he lied to her. She adds, "But if Lisa fails me, thanks to you, this queen egg will save us." Behind her, Joshua makes a total Oh Shit face.
In the newsroom, She-Chad stomps on her high heels up to Chad's desk and spits, "You set me up." No shit. "You made it all up and you let me tell the world." Chad puts what he probably thinks are calming hands on her shoulders and says, "You can't prove that." Rather than pointing out that they were both wearing live microphones in a TV studio at the time, she just smacks him across the face. That gets the attention of the other newsdrones. She-Chad says she's being fired and asks if Anna put Chad up to this. Even now, Chad says he did it to protect himself, saying She-Chad is just too good at what he does. Especially for someone who never spent an hour in journalism school. She says that everyone told her to watch her back. "That all Chad Decker cared about was himself. I should have listened. You really are the shallow, self- absorbed snake that everyone says you are." It's not like he can tell her that if he hadn't taken her out, Anna would have. She leaves him to suck on that, like a boa constrictor digesting a rabbit.
Somewhere by the river, Jack and Kyle join Sid as he's gazing up at the mothership parked over the city. He's using infrared binoculars, which he has recalibrated to detect blue energy. As you do. Looking through them at the mothership, Jack sees it shrouded in blue lightning, the ship's energy signature. Although Sid describes it as a "blue splotch," because why would the special effects people bother to read the script. But looking over at the open sky in the other direction, there are a dozen or more smaller blue blips visible through the binoculars. "What the hell are they?" Kyle asks as he gets a look for himself. Sid says they're motherships -- cloaked to telescopes and radar and all other forms of human technology, but visible by their blue energy signatures. And there are probably 500 or so. Kyle gets the point, and lays it out for us dramatically: "Their invasion ships aren't on the way. They're already here." Oh well, at least the blue is pretty.
