Falling Skies: "Looks Can Be Deceiving."

Well, what a relief. The 2nd Massachusetts, after long months fighting aliens (and each other) and slogging through New England, has finally reached Charleston, site of the new United States provisional government. Things will be going smoothly from here on out, right?

Right. Let's not kid ourselves. As happy as everyone's going to be to get a hot meal and a bed, the odds that everything is groovy down South Carolina way are pretty slim. Tom Mason and company are about to get a reminder that man's worst enemy is himself, even when surrounded by bug-eyed monsters.
