Falling Skies returns this Sunday June 9 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) for a third season and a special two hour opener including “On Thin Ice” and “Collateral Damage.”

“On Thin Ice” opens seven months after the 2nd Mass arrived in Charleston. In the interim, Tom has been elected to political office, but he has his hands full as the resistance continues to battle the alien invaders. Tom’s decision to have the rebel skitters fight alongside humans creates tension and raises suspicions that someone may be feeding secrets to the enemy. Meanwhile, Hal struggles with nightmares that seem so real, he has difficulty knowing if he’s awake or dreaming. And Tom and Anne prepare to welcome their baby. Terry O’Quinn and Gloria Reuben guest star.

The episode was directed by Greg Beeman and written by Remi Aubuchon.

Meanwhile with hostilities escalating between the resistance and the alien invaders in “Collateral Damage,” Tom calls on a nuclear specialist (guest star Robert Sean Leonard) known as “The Rat King” to come up with a plan that will strip the aliens of their power. As suspicion continues to mount about a mole within the resistance, Tom and his leaders make a drastic decision that jeopardizes trust among the group. Anne, meanwhile, has a feeling that all is not right with her newborn. Gloria Reuben also guest stars.

“Collateral Damage” was directed by James Marshall and written by Bradley Thompson & David Weddle.
