    I don't believe that's a writers' gaffe... I think it has to be that way because of the 1% thing.

    You're right. The Prez and Co were the ones assuming it was "all of them".

    Yes, we know they've been coming here for at least thousands of years...and logically there has to be a direct genetic connection. So at the very least, there's some kind of connection between them and here, and probably a strong one.

    Thinking out loud here: Thomas had apparently built up a network of followers from those that were able to escape when they all arrived in Alaska 66 years ago. I'm guessing that those closer in allegiance to him were those he chose to live in the gated community we've seen. Those that were followers of Sofia, or neutral might have been more widely dispersed and Thomas wanted to gather them all in person to fill them in on the message he got back.

    I'm still fuzzy on the numbers. There was some kind of plane/space ship crash when they arrived. It looked like maybe a few hundred arrived in total. 40 or so of Sofia's followers were killed by Thomas during the breakout. Maybe 100-150 were in the church and only 30-50 got out in that last bus.

    That doesn't leave a ton of people left from the escapees, unless they were repopulating by having children. Unless there were a lot more that escaped the crash. Still, it feels like they're down to half or even a third of their numbers.

    On the other hand, the first time the sleepers met earlier on this season, we saw them gather a huge auditorium and the non Inostranka group alone seemed to number at least several hundred.

    Do we though? How do we know the "sentinels" are the same as these aliens (or that they are even aliens at all)?

    The Sentinels are here to "protect" us from these aliens. Unless they're here to protect us from an entirely different group of aliens, and it's just a big ol' coincidence that we need protecting from this lot. :D

    I'm not sure what the connection between the Sentinels and the Aliens is...my suspicion is that thousands of years ago, they were two different factions of the same species. But that's just a guess. With this show, logic will only take you so far anyway...

    Logic in this show will take you as far as an automobile on cinder blocks with a current US made cold fusion reactor as an engine.
