SPOILER: The V are the Goa’uld. Ha ha. Kidding.
I got to see a pre-air of the final episode so I will give you some clues but no spoilers. First, let’s wrap our head around the story so far.
The visitors have been here for years. It isn’t revealed if they are as a tie-in to the original series or if this is part of the new mythology.
Wash… Dale was a V sleeper agent for 20 years. He pretended to be a human FBI agent to learn more about them/us as part of a calculated invasion. After being shanked by his partner Agent Erica Evans, he was taken to the V mothership to be re-animated and interrogated. He woke up with post traumatic amnesia and eventually remembers that Erica saw his true lizard face. He demands, in a sexy way (ok sexy to me), to be let free so that he can kill Erica. Joshua, who helped him jog his memory, kills Dale by lethal injection. Before Wash dies… Dale dies, Joshua reveals that he is part of the rebel V faction called the Fifth Column and that he intends to make Erica an ally.
The Vs get US Visitor Passports. Erica is called in to be on protective duty the Peace Ambassador Center because there has been a death threat. She appears for duty in jeans, a leather jacket, boots and aviators; girl means business.
Erica has to partner up with a V to find the shooter. She asks to get restricted access to the V security surveillance. While there, she notices a room across the hall that can only be accessed by a keypad with a numeric code. She, being a badass, remembers the code by sight.
She puts on a show of hunting, trapping and hog tying the assassin for all to see while saving Marcus V’s life; which got him all hot and lizardy for her. Erica gets her kudos then gives everyone the slip and goes back to the secured room. She conveniently finds the room empty and there is a high tech Matrix-esque, Dark Knight-styled multi-view floating screen surveillance system. The V’s have cameras in their jackets the footage is streamed to this piss-poorly secured room.
The assassin, turns out, was planted by Anna; a damned dirty lizard trick.
Sexy lizard man Ryan meets up with former resistance fighter Cyrus (01 from ‘Charlie Jade’). Ryan tries to get Cyrus to return to the fight but finds out that Cyrus is working for the Vs to capture and turn in Fifth Column rebels. Rebel Vs are disconnected from Anna’s “bliss” and Cyrus has turned his back on his rebel brethren because he is in withdrawal from the “bliss” and wants to be reconnected for a fix.
After killing Cyrus and escaping, Ryan has a meeting with Georgie to convince him to start another rebel V cell. Georgie thinks John May, leader of 5th column and leader first group of Vs to rise up against the Vs, is a myth. Ryan insists that John May is real.
Father Jack is overwhelmed with V confessions. Apparently the Bible doesn’t address or believe in extra-terrestrial life. He helps Erica track down folks from the warehouse got raided and finds Georgie’s name on a list. Jack finds Georgie’s house and also learns that Georgie’s family was killed by the Vs. Georgie finds Jack and greets him with a gun. They discover that they are all on the same side so Georgie sets up a meeting with Jack, Erica and Ryan. They form a new gang.
Mary Faulkner is on a hunger strike because her husband’s F16 fighter jet went down on the day of the V arrival. The newly widowed Mary becomes the face of the V protest movement. Anna wants to “get to” Mary so her hatred doesn’t infect others. Before Mary arrives, Anna practices being sympathetic. It is both creepy and awesome and confirms that Anna is nothing but a delicious, scaly sociopath. Who knows what Anna did to Mary but Mary makes an announcement that she understands that her husband did not die in vain. This about-face boosts the V approval rating.
Tyler meets up with Lisa at a pizzeria. (For those of you not paying attention she played Supergirl on ‘Smallville’.) She got him back into the V Ambassador Program. He takes her back to HIS MOM’S HOUSE. They make out for a bit but mom comes home and interrupts. He’s out of his V uniform in one second flat because he knows that if Erica-Mom sees the uniform that she will flip. He tries to get rid of her at his bedroom door but Erica hears noises and is greeted with a half-naked teen girl. Before Erica entered, Lisa figures that it’s better to be seen half-naked than in a V uniform so she disrobes. Quick thinking and Vs wear awesome lingerie!
Lisa goes back to the mothership to tell her that Tyler is the “the one”. The one for what, we don’t know. It is also revealed that Lisa is Anna’s daughter.
