Aliens is also given its due. One scene has Jack underground as he tries to freeze the slithering goo into compliance. In a way, Ghostbusters pokes its head out and says hi. For all the seriousness of the situation, enough lighthearted moments happen so viewers are not cringing beneath blankets.
The 'something's coming' storyline is still playing out. Since over half the season is on tap, this just might be all the way through to the finale in September. Zane Donovan (Niall Matter) will hopefully be back by then. He isn't the lead role, Colin plays it. However, he is a vital part of the community. Ever since his girlfriend Jo (Erica Cerra), the deputy sheriff, had an identity issue ("Your Face or Mine"), Zane vanished and hasn't been heard or seen since. Tess is hardly a replacement. Lucas (Vanya Asher) is back, though, but Zane is just plain eye candy.
