V – “John May Lives” (1.07) – review
We have arrived at episode seven, and things are not going well for the resistance. As the Fifth Column begins to crawl from the shadows and seek each other out, “John Mays Lives” has become quite the topic on Earth and seems to be getting under Anna’s skin. Meanwhile the drama continues with Tyler and his parents, as Ryan’s past and present lies become unraveled. Lastly, Georgie continues to be tortured aboard the V ship; will he break and reveal the members of the resistance?
I want to the give the writers a round of applause for this well done episode. I was excited to learn the identity of John May, and devastated to find out that Ryan was his murderer. Last week I commented on how V‘s characters need to become more three-dimensional and make us love or hate them. Well, that wish has come true and in a big way. Chad, our fearless reporter, has taken his position with Anna to a whole new level. To see him bravely lean over Anna as she is seated and whisper veiled threats to her was a jaw-dropper, indeed. This amazing scene was on the V ship to boot–go Chad!
Georgie’s death was an expected end and did not phase me much. However, Tyler’s “Who is my real daddy?” issues are kinda lame and are getting annoying. I understand the writers are trying to get him to turncoat on his mother, but I think they could have done it with less “Mommy I hate you.” Ryan’s problems just seem to take a turn for the worse every time he does something right. This poor space lizard can’t get a break; he comes clean about John May’s assassination, and his girlfriend discovers a few of his secrets and bails. Just when he is ready to be honest with her and explain the alien growing inside her.
Overall this episode delivered assassination, revealed secrets, exposed alien torture, and brought us Anna swimming with the eggs of her future soldiers. I call that a true nail-biter that keeps its viewers seat clenched all the way. There has been a recent rumbling that ABC might not pick up V for a second season. There are only a few episodes left this season, and I think this series is far from being resolved. I am now hooked on the characters and will not take kindly to their stories being left unfinished. I sincerely hope V‘s cancellation is just rumor and nothing more.
