In support of this hypothesis, we have -
- the aliens massacre a group of humans in a field - and leave Tom unscathed
- some kind of tiny alien insect mech emerges from Tom's eye and eventually finds its way into an alien eye
- and this, maybe a stretch on my part, but was Ben's shooting his father totally an accident, or because Ben with super-sensitivity to aliens sensed something alien in Tom (and couldn't see that he was shooting his father)?
Otherwise, lots of good brotherly tension between Hal and Ben - who has become, because of his strength and perception, Weaver's best operative, but is still not 100% above suspicion because of the parts of the alien spine that are still with him. Matt's growing up, too, able to handle a gun despite what Hal (and Tom) want, due to Ben's teaching.
Some good romantic flourishes between Maggie and Hal, Anne and Tom, and Lourdes and Jamil (fine new tech-savvy addition). And hey, I enjoyed the shoutout to Bob Dylan, who may still be alive back in Minnesota writing protest songs!
