Falling Skies: "Silent Kill" Review

Note: Full Spoilers for this episode follow. This was a strong episode for Falling Skies, moving the plot along and offering some intriguing scenes in the process for thejust-renewed series. Seeing Hal, not Tom, come up with a big plan was a good move, letting us see that he too has some solid ideas and is intent on being proactive. And hey, practicing with crossbows? That's always cool. That being said, what's up with every gal on this show being all up on Hal? I get he's a good looking dude and all, but first he was with Karen, while Lourdes seemed to be crushing on him. And now sexy/tough Margaret is flirting with him?
