V Episode 3 Recap: "A Bright New Day"

Chad reports from the Peace Ambassador Center as 100 diplomatic visas are issued to the first wave of American Visitors, with Anna getting the first. But not everyone agrees with the decision. Meanwhile Erica has started tracking a death threat while paired with a V officer, and Ryan starts reaching out to his old friends to build up opposition to the Vs. Let us begin... 8 minutes in... Anna has receives her passport as Chad Decker does his reporting duties outside the Peace Ambassador Center. He still seems to be torn about what he's done as far as helping the V's out, but hey, he's got a great gig right? Anna then walks out and shows off her new papers to the crowd and cameras before shooting Chad a look that basically says, "nah-nah-nah-nah-boo-boo, stick your head in doo-doo." Father Jack, meanwhile, starts to feel more and more like doo-doo as confession after questioning confession seems to further challenge his faith. Oh how he'd love to tell them the truth about the Vs. These are indeed tough days. Looking for comfort in the only other person who knows what he knows, Father Jack stops over at Erica's place wondering how he can help. He also wonders why the Vs didn't just come down and obliterate humanity instead of pretending to be friends. They certainly have the technology to destroy us (despite the crappiness of their flying cameras). Erica tells him that the aliens obviously want the humans for something. (Those who saw the original know what that something is. I won't spoil it for those who don't.) Suddenly, Erica gets a call from her office saying she needs to go investigate and, get this, even PROTECT a V whose life was threatened. Now we're getting somewhere. The scene ends with Father Jack saying he would like to stay and sift through the information Erica has been examining to try to figure out who was at the resistance meeting she and Father Jack attended at the warehouse. She says fine, but there's something I don't like about the look Father Jack gives her. Am I thinking too much into this? Anyway, we catch up with Ryan who, like a good fiancé, is walking his ladylove to work. He's still fighting over the decision about what to tell her or not tell her, and decides not to tell her anything. At least for now. Georgie pulls up in his car and Ryan gets in. They discuss starting up the resistance and whatnot. Then Ryan says a man by the name of John May can help them. And that he's not a myth. He also mentions that they have to get the Fifth Column back together - whatever that means. Back on the mother ship, Dale talks to some technician about his little incident at the warehouse. Through their dialogue we find out that Dale has been a sleeper V for more than 20 years. Wow! That's what...5 weeks of vacation a year now? Well, good old Dale doesn't seem to remember what happened or who he is, but thank goodness the humans don't know V anatomy because he'd be a goner if they'd realized where his heart is located (apparently not in his chest). Long story short, it seems the whole getting-stabbed-in-the-chest-and-left-with-a-giant-hole-in-the-side-of-his-head-and-left-for-dead thing doesn't sit well with Dale. I know I'd be ticked. 18 minutes in... Anna watches a protesting widow by the name of Mary Faulkner on the television talking bad about the Vs. Anna fears that this woman is becoming the face of the resistance and she wants to know everything about her. Wonder what the Vs will dig up - probably something good. They can always check with TMZ. Everything is ruined when Tyler has a little scene. His buddy tells him that it sucks that he still gets to go in the ambassador building and Tyler doesn't because of the whole punching-the-protestor incident. Tyler tells him it's his fault and he'll figure some way to get back in. Then he drives off on his motorcycle with his bad hair as Lisa looks on. To Read More Click Here .

V Episode 3: "A Bright New Day" - Review

This episode of V got off to a bit of a clunky start, with a montage sequence in which Father Jack performs one confession after another and is seemingly overwhelmed by the differing reactions to the Visitors arrival. It was an interesting idea in theory, but not executed very well, coming off a bit cheesy. In general, the first half of this episode felt a bit lethargic. We learned that the US was now in diplomatic relations with the Visitors, and Anna and Lisa were among the first to receive Visas (A bit of unfortunate alliteration there, with the Visas for Vs program). Meanwhile, the possibility of a murder attempt on one of the Visitors had Erica and other FBI agents working in tandem with Visitors to find the man targeting them, but it seemed like a missed story opportunity With Erica now aware of the Visitors' true nature, a lot more could have been done with her interaction with one of them, but it was all fairly mundane material consisting of "the suspect looks like And even as Erica spotted the guy and guns were waved, there was no discernable tension in the midst of the situation. Luckily, the episode picked up in a big way in its second half. Erica's discovery of a surveillance room (albeit one with incredibly poor security) was a very cool sequence the visuals of dozens of floating, holographic, red-tinged screens was a compelling one, and Erica's discovery that the footage she was seeing was coming from hidden cameras inside the Visitors' uniforms was a nice "Ah ha!" moment. I also really enjoyed Anna's reaction to the widow of a pilot who died when the Visitors arrived, who was fast becoming the face of anti-Visitor sentiment. After she learned the woman was coming to her building to make a speech, we saw Anna practicing over and over again what to say to the woman to appear kind, caring and sympathetic, changing her inflection and tone. It was a chilling, yet fun look at how manipulative Anna can be, as she expertly got the woman on her side, with the two speaking together about peace and unity. Plus there was the fact that it turned out the assassination attempt was all a ruse, set up by Anna to help garner sympathy. Oh Anna, you are a clever one. To Read More Click Here .

'V' Episode 3: The Fifth Column and The Legend of John May - Review

Things are getting interesting on ABC's V as we uncover more mysteries in the third episode called "A Bright New Day." This week, we learn about Anna and Lisa's connection, the existence of the Fifth Column and an urban legend in the form of John May. When we last saw V, Chad has opened the idea of diplomatic relations with the Visitors to the public, consequently allowing the aliens to have visas and travel within the nation's borders. Eric and Father Jack have teamed up to fight the Vs as they got their hands on the FBI's list of people with alien encounters, while Erica's partner Dale has been brought back to life. Anna is the first one to set foot on American soil followed by the first wave of American Visitors who have been granted visas as well. This should be a cause for historic celebration for the Vs but the day quickly turns sour as a bunch of rowdy protesters start gathering outside the Peace Ambassador Center. It also doesn't help that there's been a threat against the Visitors and Erica has been called to ensure their protection. Being paired with a V to prevent threats from happening is a good excuse for Erica to get close to the V's headquarters, while Father Jack continues going through the FBI's list for possible survivors from the warehouse, which includes resistance leader Georgie. Meanwhile, we learn an interesting piece of information from Ryan: He used to be part of the Fifth Column, a mysterious group that consists of V traitors such as himself hoping to fight Anna and her crew. Not much has been revealed about the Fifth Column except that some of its members are scattered all over the world, while some are already deep-seated in Anna's empire, including Joshua, a Visitor who helped Dale repair his lost memory before killing him to prove his true allegiance. But as we move further into the season, we'll surely find out more now that Ryan aims to round up renegades to reestablish the column. Then there's John May-- a name that strikes anxiety even to the V's in command. He's some sort of a legendary figure among the Visitors and has the money and power for the Fifth Column to thrive. The best revelation in "A Bright New Day," however, is the link between Anna and Lisa, who turns out to be mother and daughter. Speaking of Lisa, she also makes out with Tyler, who apparently is the main target of the Vs. Source Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

A Bright New Day

Anna sets up a terrorist attack and talks of love and peace with a woman widowed because of the V arrival. The priest gets reckless but pulls up an Ace in the whole ending the episode with a meeting of those who survived the warehouse. We also found out that Taylor's alien girlfriend is the daughter of Anna; And, that the head doctor on the N.Y. Mothership is a member of the V renegades called the '5th Column'. I think Anna will become a member of the 5th Column, or maybe already is. There is no way for her to predict how good Erica was and so there was a very high probability Anna's partner would have been killed. Thus her setting up the assassination attempt that only Erica was able to stop, literally at the last second, suggests Anna has ulterior motives. I have only seen one or two episodes of the original and so maybe this is old news. *shrugs* Admittedly, I do hope she fully switches sides when Scott's budding conscience grows past its infancy, and becomes a problem for him.
