'Falling Skies' Comic-Con panel: Footage of what's next for Karen and how the cast sees their characters dying

The Project: TNT’s Falling Skies

The Panel: Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Connor Jessup (Ben), “the devastatingly handsome” Drew Roy (Hal) — as moderator and Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Wil Wheaton called the actor — Colin Cunningham (Pope), “the face-meltingly beautiful” Sarah Carter (Maggie) — another Wheaton descriptor — Doug Jones (Cochise), executive producer Remi Aubuchon, and director/executive producer Greg Beeman

Footage screened: The audience was treated to a brief clip from the upcoming July 21 episode. Karen has Tom on a torture table in a creepy, alien place, not unlike the harnessing factory from season 2. The professor-turned-soldier tells Karen, “Go to hell.” She leans in and whispers ominously, “If you haven’t noticed, this is hell.” Once Tom manages to get the upper hand in the situation, he puts a gun to Karen’s forehead. When he’s sure he’s gotten all the information about Anne and Lexi he can from her (which isn’t much), he shoots her point blank! That shocking end to the clip had the audience gasping in a collective “ohhhh!” followed by cheers. Let’s hope Hal’s ex-girlfriend-turned-formidable-alien-ally is really dead — or does Falling Skies have a trick up its sleeve?

At the end of the panel, there was also a screening of a sizzle reel with footage from the remaining episodes of season 3. Moment to most look forward to from that: A high-octane train sequence with Pope leaning off the side of the train, firing off a rifle at what only can be enemy aliens.

'Falling Skies': Drew Roy previews Sunday's intense, shocking episode

During Falling Skies‘ first two seasons, fans watched Hal Mason grow from high school lacrosse hotshot to alien invasion survivor trying to prove himself to his protective dad, to seasoned soldier in the fight for the planet. Now, in season 3, Drew Roy, who plays Hal on the TNT sci-fi series, has flexed some more acting muscles with the ever-creepier and unsettling “evil Hal,” as he’s come to be known since an alien parasite wormed its way into his head at the end of season 2.

Falling Skies ups the ante for the “evil Hal” storyline in tonight’s episode, “Be Silent and Come Out.” When EW chatted with Roy, the actor provided a few teases for the episode. Read on to learn what you can expect from tonight’s episode and more about Hal in season 3 thus far, then come back to EW.com after tonight’s episode for Roy’s memories from shooting the intense “Be Silent and Come Out.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Last summer, you told us that you watched The Shining and Take Shelter in preparation for shooting season 3, but at that point you couldn’t reveal why. Now that we’ve seen what’s going on with “evil Hal” this season, what can you tell us about why those films were helpful?
DREW ROY: With The Shining, I just wanted to see how Jack Nicholson had that deterioration take over him from when he first stepped into the hotel to when he loses it and attacks his family. It felt like it was a similar theme going on with Hal in that he was being controlled by the aliens, but from the outside it was just like some mental problem he was going through. Anytime you can learn from a great film, it’s worth watching. But you never want to copy what somebody does, so it’s more of seeing how that path was laid and then take that into consideration as you move forward with your own performance. READ FULL STORY

'Falling Skies' season 3 preview: The fight for the planet gets more complicated

It’s a sunny late September day on the Vancouver set of alien invasion series Falling Skies, and director Greg Beeman is wishing there were more wind.

The cast and crew of the TNT sci-fi show are working on a long tracking shot of the Falling Skies heroes cleaning up after a battle in their home base of Charleston, where an American flag, for now, hangs limp on a pole in the center of town.

“I want that American flag to furl,” Beeman says. “Is it ‘furl’ or ‘unfurl’?” A crew member sitting next to him in video village assures him they want the flag to unfurl. The energetic director claps and chants, “Unfurl, baby, unfurl” before adding, “Raise it really quickly so it catches the wind and flows real pretty.”

Beeman commits several takes to making that flag in the wind a cinematic opening to the long shot through Charleston, but it’s about more than making it look “pretty” — the American flag is also part of some essential imagery for a show that has, since its beginning, loosely alluded to the American Revolutionary War. Humans find themselves fighting on their own turf for independence from aliens. When various infrastructures crumble after the invasion, for the survivors whose story started in Boston, the American flag remains “an iconic and tangible symbol of who they are and what they’re fighting for,” showrunner Remi Aubuchon said.

That nod to the Revolutionary War continues to evolve in season 3 — which premieres on TNT tonight — when the show picks up seven months after the cliffhanger of last summer’s finale: A new alien species called the Vohm has arrived, and they become Falling Skies’ own version of the French.

'Falling Skies': Noah Wyle teases mysteries of season 3 -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Falling Skies returns for a third season this Sunday with all the sci-fi elements that first attracted an audience in summer 2011: action, creep-outs, and post-apocalyptic drama. Mystery has also always been a part of the TNT show (Why did the aliens invade Earth?), but mystery and intrigue are elements the makers of Falling Skies decided to ramp up even more this year.

One of the central mysteries of the new season is the identity of a mole within the resistance. Someone within Charleston, the new capital of what remains of the United States, is feeding inside information and strategies to the alien enemy.

Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Colin Cunningham (Pope), Drew Roy (Hal), and more cast members chat about season 3 mysteries in an EW exclusive video. Watch below, then read on for what showrunner Remi Aubuchon had to say about Falling Skies mysteries, surprises, and red herrings. READ FULL STORY

'Falling Skies' cast talks Spielberg, love triangles, and more at EW's CapeTown Film Festival -- VIDEO

On Friday May 3, the crowd gathered for Escape From New York at the EW CapeTown Film Festival was also treated to a special screening of the first hour of the season 3 premiere of Falling Skies and a Q&A with members of the cast.

During the Q&A session, Noah Wyle talked about Steven Spielberg being involved with every aspect of the show, from casting to editorial work. “But it’s not a presence that you feel on the set necessarily, other than wanting to do your best work, cause you know it’s being watched and handled by one of the preemptive storytellers of our time.”
