Well, he's the infiltration expert, demolition expert, bullet expert, and the head chef. It's hard to live without him

Hold up one minute!! This is a family type show. The good guys must always remain good and morale. Offing the arse that threatens not only your safety, but could cause rifts in the group is not an option.

While I agree with you, that in an apocalyptic scenarios, those that pose a threat to the group must be removed (left behind, or if hostile enough killed). The struggle the protagonists must go through to remain morale provides the writers with constant stories with the same villain, because they refused to kill him in the first place.

Oh yeah, one thing that's been bothering me I wanted to ask about. So at the end of last season they had realized they could make bullets that could take out the mechs by melting down their armor.....

What happened with that?

It seems like they don't have any super ammo, they don't talk about it, and they won't go toe to toe with a mech, by omission are they retconning the super bullets from last year?

One thing I liked was that Mason knew he could be a danger to everyone, and insisted he be watched and even tied up. That seemed in line with his character and more 'realistic' (given that this is an alien invasion tv show).
