    This.... it's not like Dr. Carter was a military guy before - he was a history professor. Every able-bodied adult should be a fighter.

    And this. I actually thought he was eeevvvvillll as soon as he brought up taking the kids away first.

    So can we assume that since military guy lied about the kids that reinforcements aren't coming as well?

    But it's also quite possible that there's no skitter pod coming toward the school either. It was a ploy to scare them into letting him get the kids out of harm's way.

    That's my guess. The 2nd Mass adults are supposed to be delayed long enough for their children to be sold/traded to the skitters.

    I took it to be that the Skitters made a deal that they wouldn't attack his location and would leave him and his group alone if he continued to supply them with kids on a regular basis.

    What I didn't get is that they walked to this location from the school in one day. Somewhere near the end of that walk, they took a detour and ended up in a different place than where the rest of the group thinks they are. So in theory, the rest of the group will show up at the specified place on the map, nobody will be there, and then they'll go out looking for their kids. How far away could the kids be if they only made a detour near the end of the hike? And the main group has motorcycles to scout with. 7th Mass guy isn't going to be able to hide from the main group for very long. So that's telling me that he's sending the main group into an ambush in the hopes that all the parents will be killed and he'll be able to keep trading kids for his safety for a long time.

    well, never mind the fact that they're bound to run out of kids to barter with...

    Perhaps the attack at night by the one skitter and one mech was preplanned to convince everyone that the new military guy was right. Maybe that is why the mech retreated.
