Thank you joining us for the last, and lengthy, installment of Berserker Cast! Our feedback segment in this episode spanned nearly the amount of time as our episode discussion, and we were absolutely thrilled! We got to hear from many people with a wide range of opinions, so whether you loved or hated the Falling Skies finale, we think that you will find someone in the feedback section who resonates with your sentiments.
This podcast covers the series finale of Falling Skies, season 5 episode 10 entitled “Reborn”. It originally aired on August 30, 2015. The episode opened in the same manner as the series premiere did, with a monologue as the drawings of children were displayed on the screen. I’m not going to lie, Darrell and I were pretty hard on this episode. Though it bore many elements that we wanted out of this finale, many of the events were confusing and disjointed.
On a positive note, we got one of the best guest stars of the entire series in this episode! Jeff Fahey, known by LOST fans as Frank Lapidus, portrayed Enos Ellis. Fahey filled the role of this rough edged Mason Militia fighter perfectly. Even though some of his men were a bit on the dense side, he was a nice addition to the finale cast. I actually liked how he was insistent upon being brought into the fold, because it enabled Ben and Hal to do some auditory processing, which brought out the sheer experience that survivors have. Sometimes it seems like Tom thinks he’s the only one who can do anything, willing to risk it all, and to hear Ellis’s story about being the only one to crawl out of an impossible situation alive made him realize, I think, that delegation was a viable option.
