In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

Ten years ago in Reedsville, New York, which, according to Google Maps, is not a town that actually exists. Perhaps they are worried about alien retaliation if they use a real town? Either way it will be great to fuel the alternate reality rumors that are surely spilling over from Lost. It is evening and a man sits in his study making fishing flies (do people in the exurbs do that sort of thing? Maybe he's making ammo). when the table shakes and the lights flicker. His son rushes in convinced that he saw a UFO, but his dad reassures him there is no such thing as UFOs and rushes him back to bed. The second the kid is out of the room, the guy picks up a phone, hastily dials a number and announces, "They came for me. Tell the others I'm going dark." He hangs up his phone and picks up a shotgun. By the way, the man is played by Michael Trucco, who will forever be Samuel Anders to me. He runs outside with his gun and sees a V ship de-cloak (I guess that Klingon technology is real!) overhead. He scurries through the underbrush when out of the darkness and fully armed steps...Ryan (??) He and John May tussle, but when Ryan steps in a wolf trap (a wolf trap and a ten-year old boy do make for some exciting birthday parties), John May points the gun at his head. Ryan spews some vitriol about John May turning against his own kind, but John May returns the harsh words saying that Bliss is a drug and human emotions are the real thing. Yeah, Up With People! Ryan claims that John May has just been in his skin sack too long and his cold blood is fading. Ryan instructs him to kill him now, because he will NEVER stop hunting him. John May stupidly lowers the gun, because he is pro-life and tells Ryan that someday he will understand. Then he bolts. The show awkwardly cuts to Ryan in the present. Maybe the editor was taking a Mentos Moment and couldn't be bothered to edit properly. It's hard to tell whether Ryan is simply remembering this scene or whether he has just finished recounting it to the Fab Four. Kyle doesn't know who John May is and Ryan quickly explains that John started the resistance against the Visitors...and Ryan sort of knew him. Erica and Father Jack are shocked that Ryan didn't mention that he knew him before, but Ryan shrugs that he's not much of a name dropper and they aren't leaving Georgie to die, like those two things are related somehow. Ryan is determined to get back on the ship and rescue Georgie and Erica agrees. Kyle however doesn't, because his entire point on the show thus far is to be a foil and to disagree with everything anyone says. Keep it up, Kyle, the Foreign Press is watching! Kyle doesn't think that Georgie is weak, but he does have a breaking point and whatever information Georgie has will end up in the hands of the Visitors. Ryan disagrees. Beneath that squidgy bearded body is a Man of Iron who will never break under V torture. But wait, Kyle, doesn't that mean you should rescue Georgie NOW before he can give up any information? Are you just disagreeing because you have to? Ryan then realizes that he doesn't agree with his own rescue plan. Instead he wants to go find John May's long lost communication device and his next of kin and get in touch with Joshua up on the ship. Hopefully Joshua can organize a rescue. Even Kyle likes this new plan.

Up on the old V homestead, pregnancy is not agreeing with Anna at all. She pulls up a mirror to see if she looks as bad as she feels and sure enough she does, but not for long! She concentrates and suddenly looks as lovely as Morena Baccarin as Anna, but not as pretty as Inara, and almost as attractive as Michael Cera. So, I know the Vs have advanced technology and their skin is grown in a lab, but how long until Neutrogena puts out a product that can do THAT? And do the Vs' healing centers address dermatological issues? Because I am pretty sure women would go there for free oxygen facials, dermabrasions, and chemical peels, even if the Vs are kind of creepy. The Visitors could also use their technology to predict pimples the way they predicted Chad Decker's aneurysm. You could plan your big days around them, like, don't get married June 6th you'll have a pimple to rival Eyjafjallajokull. And if the Visitors say that the R6 reduces wrinkles and prevents the flu, women will be lining up. Heck, the Visitors could even tell them they were reptiles and who would care, because: LOOK AT THEIR SKIN! It's glowing! Girls are kinda stupid like that. No. 2 comes to give his morning report. Georgie is not responding to the memory chamber, which I assume is that laser light show they made Tyler suffer through last week. Although Tyler didn't seem to mind it, but maybe they let him take a toke first. Anyway, No.2 doesn't think Georgie is going to cave anytime soon and they aren't getting any information from him. Anna tells him to kick it up a notch with Georgie. Maybe show him Emeril reruns. That would make anyone crack. No. 2 also tells Anna that there is a resistance growing among the humans invited to the Live Aboard Program. Anna frowns and orders No. 2 to find Chad Decker. What, no Chad Decker Bat Phone yet? She wants to take to the air to convince the humans herself. She wants "those bodies on board". Ooh are they going to be human incubators? Shocking! Except that we have all seen Aliens. Almost twenty years ago. Yawn.

Tyler's Dad lives in Georgetown, Connecticut, a town that is lucky enough to reside between Norwalk and Danbury. Also, to actually exist. Tyler's Dad heads off with newspaper and coffee into his office, only to be surprised by a lithesome (and loathsome) blonde buttoning her shirt on the way out. Can't a man use his bathroom anymore without risk of catching herpes from a V hussy?? Now he's going to have get a whole new toilet. But before he heads off to Home Depot, he would like to know WHO THE HELL SHE IS. She smiles and says she's Lisa, Tyler's girlfriend. Dad's confused, when did she get there? Who invited her? Who said she could stay? She smiles coldly and says she just wanted to come check on Tyler. She remembers what she learned from Tyler's memory extractor and Human Emotion lessons and quickly tells him that Tyler's been having a really rough time since his dad left and she wanted to make sure he was okay. Dad's irritation quickly turns to guilt over abandoning the family and instead of grilling Lisa as to what exactly she is doing there adjusting her clothes and using his goddamn bathroom, he asks if Tyler ever talks about him. Lisa knows she has won this round and reassures him that Tyler never said anything bad about him. Tyler's pop is REALLY out of practice in being a dad, because trust me, if a strange girl had wandered out of my dad's bathroom first thing in the morning, there would have been some pretty alien butt on the porch with a door shut in her face pretty darn quickly. But Lisa just trots downstairs for breakfast as if she owned the damn place. Next thing you know, Ty and his dad are going to be putting the toilet seat down and using napkins. Downstairs, Tyler hurriedly explains that he slept on the couch and then begs his dad to let Lisa interrupt their guy time. You see, he really likes her. Yeah and John really liked Yoko before she ate him and spawned an army of Nickelback fans.

Anna has called Chad Decker to the ship so she can try to explain away the hacked message that appeared on the bottom of the ship during her announcement of the Live Aboard Program. She claims that they simply can't explain the message because they think it was a glitch, some old code. Some day they will all be laughing about this! Ha ha ha, John May! She then changes the subject to her excitement about the Live Aboard Program and a chance to repay the hospitality the succulent and delicious earthlings have shown them during their stay. You know, before they leave. Anna is great at slip
