Review - V (2009) Season 1 Episode 9 Heretic's Fork

Can you believe there are only three episodes left? Less than two months ago, only four episodes had aired and there was much promise in the show. Now, with 9 episodes total, V has become a formless drama with a banal mixture of events, no of which are drawing me into the show. TNT's untitled alien drama, detailed by NY Magazine, actually sounds promising but so too did V.

The Visitors know about the hybrid so they send a "soldier" after her. He's only slightly better than the average V and isn't as destructive as I imagined (Seriously, Anna thought he was soooooo insanely strong that he would attract attention from humans.). Hobbes sends an axe into his chest, but I'm pretty sure the soldier is still alive. At the end of the episode, Valerie leaves on a train without Ryan. It looks like Val will give birth in the season finale, so she'll have to come back. As much as the original V series sucked (not the 2 miniseries), I wouldn't even mind the Star Child plot right now.

It looks like the Fifth Column may gain two notable members. Chad, for no reason other than integrity, asks Jack how he can help actively oppose the Visitors. After hearing Erica's distress over losing Tyler, Lisa tells Tyler not to join the Live Aboard program. She's slowly becoming human like the other Visitors who had close interactions with humans. I don't really care about either character, so I could care less. In fact, I don't think I care about any character.

Score: 8.4/10
