This morning Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Son of a Bush" and some times truth is the funniest thing, isn't it?
The Event airs on NBC each Monday night.
I watched the Tivo tonight. (I am watching an ex-girlfriend's child on Mondays as she -- ex-girlfreind -- finishes up her last semester of college. So I watch The Event the next day.)
Sopfia. Poor Sofia. This was a very difficult episode for her.
She attempted to convince the president that she and the other aliens were not wishing anyone harm. But he didn't believe her and he certainly didn't when gun shots were exchanged. In the first episode, they "evented" a plane out of thin air. (I don't know the term for it.) So she was on the phone with the guy who ran the "eventing" machinery to see if all 187 of them (aliens) could be transported. That couldn't happen.
Sophia had to figure out what to do.
As the president was gearing for the military to move in, she gave the order for the Washington Monument to be taken out. After that the president agreed to supply her with buses to get her people out of there because she was threatening further attacks.
Meanwhile the president and his crew had figured out that Simon is an alien. And they work to unencrypt his phone conversations.
He is on the phone with Sophia appalled by what she did. She explains she had to buy time. She also reveals to Simon that they don't have the power to back up her threats.
When they decode it, the president orders the military to kill them all.
They are traveling in buses and the buses are being bombed by the US military. Thomas is in one bus with a group of people and Sophia in the other. Thomas finds out there is enough energy to "event" one bus. He gives the order to "event" one. Which one?
On the phone with Sophia, he explains and explains that she's about to be "evented" and she starts saying no but it's too late. So Thomas, who turned on his own mother, ended up being the one to save her.
(They had a brief scene this episode where they made up, mid-way into the episode.)
Layla was on. And whining. Ugh.
And John Ritter's son was still searching for Dixie Carter's boyfriend. Hal Holbrooke, I forgot the actor's name.
It was Sophia's episode and it was a great one.
