I don't feel like the episode lived up to all the hype, though the acting was great. I have never been a fan of jumping back and forth between
time to tell the story, though it wasn't too difficult to follow in this episode. If the next couple of episodes give any hints of dragging out the
story like other shows then it will lose me.
Thing is, there was no NEED for the time jumping, and no need for the audience to watch the exact same scenes over and over again. They really need to
cut this out. Completely unnecessary, and only distracting to the story.
I'm intrigued by the show, but they will need to answer some of the questions sooner than LOST did, to keep the audience. My thinking is as
1) The detainees are alien-related (either aliens themselves, hybrids, or former abductees).
2) The pilot's daughter was abducted as leverage, to get the pilot to agree to fly the plane and kill the President.
3) The President's advisors who don't want him to go public, are behind the assassination attempt (and the daughter's abduction).
4) The aliens used their technology to prevent the assassination attempt from succeeding.
5) The EVENT is the arrival of the alien mothership (most likely in a nearby orbit on the dark side of the moon...to hide from other terrestrial
Reasoning: there has to be some "THEY" who have the technology to generate the wormhole that rescued the plane. Since those with the best access to
such tech of a terrestrial bent (i.e. the black ops guys) are the ones who tried to kill him, it's not them...so probably an extra-terrestrial power
(and fits with why these people, which include a woman in her late forties, would be considered dangerous to release).
