The Event Epsiode 19 Discussion Post 34

The White House grapples with the unfolding tragedy as Sterling continues the investigation into his primary suspect, while Sophia manipulates the traitor inside the White House, confirming the suspicions of Chief of Staff Peel.

Leila and Michael attempt to rescue Simon, at tremendous personal risk. Elsewhere, Sean and Vicky try to identify Sophia's secret courier before it's too late.

Episode Title "Us or Them"

If you are in the UK, wondering what this post is about then I'm afraid that Channel 4's ridiculous decision to show The Event at 5 past midnight clashes with the next episode airing in the US. Feel free to tell us what you think of Channel 4 and also please email them or send a tweet to express your displeasure.

First! :)

Nothing can top the real Event yesterday! Awesome news...proud of our military!

Black Swan said...

Hey, you're on a roll, Maven.

And yes, nothing can tip the real Event from yesterday..quoting Obama "It was a good day for America".


I look forward to tonight. I always enjoy watching The Event and they say just 4 more eps left.

Black Swan said...

oops, I mean 'top' not 'tip'

SG_Tess said...

I'm never home when the blog updates or I'd give you a run for your money maven. :)

Hi Swan.
Very proud of our troups.

Just Thinking said...

Hello, Hello.

Black Swan said...

Hi, SG! That's for sure...

Looking at those 'in Memoriam' pics of Dempsey at his 'office' (NBC site), the younger pics of him thrown in there do remind me of Sean a bit.

SG_Tess said...

Hi JT
Swan I never looked at them. Just thought they'd be of older Dempsey.

Just Thinking said...

I wonder if the Prez is really going to die.

Just Thinking said...

Oop- we got a pulse- but in a coma!

Just Thinking said...

Was nice of them to give him a TV- LOL!

Just Thinking said...

Hmm- you think that guy might be a Sophia mole too? the one with Sterling.

Black Swan said...

Hi, JT!

Gosh, I love Simon..

LOL, I think it's funny they left him with a tv, too!

Putting the Pres. in a coma, giving time for Blake to find out what was in the coffee.

'I can check your suitcase'...oh! here comes the A team!

SG_Tess said...

JT
I suspected him at first. But I'm changing my mind aboout him now.

Swan
I like guys who can fight with their legs. :)

Black Swan said...

ROFL, SG.. yeah, well we all have our 'thing'. hahahahaha

I wasn't thinking of that guy with Sterling being a mole, altho I was suspicious of him for awhile too.

Wonder why Sophia says it could be a problem that the virus moves so fast?

Just Thinking said...

Hmm- I think the stewardess would notice that.

Just Thinking said...

Good twist though.

SG_Tess said...

Sophia might be afraid she can't control the virus and kill some of her people.

I'm just saying the two characters I've liked recently both fight with their legs. lol

Black Swan said...

I don't think Michael can do it!

Black Swan said...

SG, yeah.. that's funny.

I think you're right about Sophia being afraid that she's not entirely sure she can control the virus and that makes it NOT what I was thinking; that the aliens are naturally immune to it.

Black Swan said...

The other thought that comes to mind is that if it was slow-acting, it wouldn't look like a genocide but just a natural disaster and no one would look for a perpetrator. Sophia and the aliens don't need to extinguish the whole human race to make room for themselves and they'll want to 'get along' with whoever is left (and not seen as the awful murderers that they really are)

Just Thinking said...

Yes, when It was revealed as a naturally occurring disease it did seem that they wanted to hide killing everyone.

SG_Tess said...

Good point Swan.

Black Swan said...

Ha! We'll see who's done and who's not!!

Just Thinking said...

Oh- that's all- she wants it to spread.

Black Swan said...

ah, not enough time for the virus to spread.. yep, JT

Black Swan said...

Vicki loves Sean. It was strange looking at the photo album on Dempsey's desk.. looked like it was Sean and Vicki on a honeymoon.

Just Thinking said...

Good for Leila-staying with Dad.

Black Swan said...

Yeah, JT. Looks awful for her next week tho. scary!

Just Thinking said...

At least Simon is out!

Black Swan said...

Yay, Simon!!

SG_Tess said...

Swan
Yes it does look bad. It looks like your theory they're immune might be right though.

SG_Tess said...

Oh and Yay Simon! :)

Black Swan said...

So, if Layla is a half-breed, she'd have some immunities too, right? Actually, that might make her the perfect 'carrier'. Doesn't look good!
