Does Cartwright Curse really apply to this show, and to Erica in particular? Neither Dale nor Eli was really her Love Interest, and her losing Joe seems more a case of Her Heart Will Go On.

Ryan and Lisa have also lost lovers, but in both cases they were long-term relationships and not treated as disposable (well, Lisa hasn't really had time to react). I don't see the "epidemic levels" mentioned in the entry.

You know the plan of the fifth column was so assanine; so poorly excuted in the second season finale, I'm wondering if this is a Xanatos Gambit they're playing with Anna. That actually all of the people that were "killed" are actually alive and well, Okay maybe not well, but planning something secretly. Or am I putting too much faith in this shows writers?

That might be putting too much faith in the writers. On the bright side, that would hopefully excuse Lisa from her Character Derailment and Too Dumb to Live behavior in the finale.

Definitely putting too much faith in the writers.

I have a theory that the V's, despite being reptilian in nature, reproduce the same way insects like bees and ants or other type of hive dwellers. Anna is the queen, so she is the mother of all other V's (drones). Lisa has also been raised to become a queen, which is the destiny that Anna keeps speaking of. Tyler is destined to father the future generation of V's, which is what Lisa meant when she said that Tyler is "the one."

You Keep Using That Word example-

Now I'm only up to the episodes in the UK but so far the only case where the humans have used the term the Fifth Column is when whatshisface shouted it out on a V ship as a signal to other Vees: he was specifically attempt to make everyone think of the Visitor organisation. Also when whatshisalienface admits he's a V, he has to tell whathisface that the visitor resistance is called the fifth column.

Now possibly I'm remembering it wrong and I'm just projecting my impression that the humans started using the visitor's term for themselves, in which case I put in a little justifying edit to explain that potential implication. However if I'm right then calling themselves the Fifth Column has been perfectly cromulent and the example should be taken down.

How to Invade an Alien Planet: regarding this , how do we know that they are doing it wrong. We dont know the plan or the endgame. So does this count?

They fail almost half of the points in Phase 2.
