Every time I think I know what is going to happen in an episode, they surprise me. Well...tonight was a game-changing shocker that I would never have believed they would do.
I did have a chuckle when Miles pointed out to Charlie how annoying it is when a kid tells you what to do. Charlie's courage got her into more trouble than she could handle in this episode. Charlie can relate to Peter's actions because they both lost a parent and Charlie does not follow orders any better than those children did. How will Charlie convince "rebels" that she is not with the Militia? Will Charlie use the brand to infiltrate the Militia?
I am glad Aaron protected the children instead of waiting to be found. They were in a basement so it was not sunlight that caused the pendant to activate. I have not figured it out yet. Holy serendipity, Batman! The lighthouse became lit at the right time to provide a distraction for the Mathesons and crew. Aaron has really grown a set if he is going to challenge Miles to take something from him. My $$ is on Miles.
Miles drew his sword - twice! Miles' conscience is torturing him. I understand why he wanted to remain at the bar instead of getting involved with Charlie. He knows he can never rectify the suffering the Militia has caused.
Rachel has been dealing with some moral issues of her own. How many people will she sacrifice to save Danny?

This episode struck me as Lord of the Flies meet Revolution. How great an idea that they show us how this has affected children in a manner we hadn't seen before. This really shows us how fucked up the country has become.
I was excited to hear more about how the catastrophe happened, but I have to be honest, the idea that it was caused by evil members of the United States Dept. of Defense is an old trope that we've all seen way too many times before. Unless they can put some kind of new spin on this idea, it's very disappointing to me, mainly in the fact that it's been used in so many TV shows and movies that it's now trite.
I continue to give NBC kudos for putting the episodes up for viewing on their website the very next day, though, as it seems that they are willing to move into the 21st century in terms of getting viewers.

SoCal, yes, I saw Colin Ford. He is growing into a handsome young man.
MisterMoonlight, I agree it would be trite for the evil DOD to be the culprit. I returned to your thread to see what Kripke said, and I got the impression the story behind the blackout would be a shocker. Maybe the shocker is what you mentioned about the science doing the opposite of what was intended.
