Invasion: The Nest
It's still doing it! Gets better every week! Remember how the last episode ended, with Kira taking an evening stroll into the swamp water? Well she chickened out. Never went for that swim, but this episode opened with her continued desire to find out what happens when you go in the water. Oooh, oooh, pick me! I want to be an alien!
Tom is still giving Kira a hard time and she even asks the one-armed man (ehh... I mean Louis) to check out the water with her but he declines. After all, Tom did say stay away from my daughter or I'll make you cut your other arm off. Well not really... but I assume that's what he'd do. Kira goes swimming anyway. But she didn't see "the lights." Instead she bumped into Derek and Christina - fresh from their escape of Tom's "confused alien youth boot camp."
So Kira has officially fallen in with the wrong crowd. They rob clothing stores. They break into the house of Christina's old boss and when the guy shows up, she guts him with a kitchen knife. Kira is terrified and Derek is disturbed too. But he defends Christina... probably because she's the only alien tail he can get right now.
Meanwhile, Russel runs some tests on Mariel. He draws blood and all the indicators suggest that she's very sick. But Mariel feels fine... except for all that painful pressure in her stomach. Nothing doing there so the two of them go to the hospital and Mariel gets an MRI. The results make it look like she has a gigantic tumor in her stomach. But when Russel biopsies it (I love that Russel, a park ranger, is proficient at performing all medical procedures be it on crocodile or ex-wife) and examines the goop that comes out, he and Mariel realize that her stomach is chock full of tiny little eggs. That tumor? Giant alien ovary.
Back with the cool kids, Derek and Christina take Kira to the beach. They were going to force Kira into the water... but she runs in on her own accord and "the lights" get her. She's dragged out and about this time Tom and Louis show up. Tom strangles Christina and Louis finds Kira washed up on the beach, covered in those circular, bloody alien wounds. Looks like she'll live, but... well, who knows? My theory? She embraces the alien lifestyle (can I call it that?) and gives Tom a run for his money as the ringleader. We'll have to wait until after the Olympics to find out, but I think we're going to see Kira take a turn for the worse and become an alien bad-ass.
