I want to talk about the parallels of Falling Skies with LOST. You find some kind of same ingredients.

The hero Tom Mason in Falling Skies and Jack Shephard. They are the same kind of hero. They are the leaders of their groups. They sometimes take the wrong decisions and get themselves into big troubles.

The « bad boy » John Pope in Falling Skies and James « Sawyer » Ford in LOST. In appearance, they are rude some kind of asshole but in the end they are on the good side.

The alternative lives. In Falling Skies in the episode Strange Brew from season 3, we have this kind of alternative lives where Karen make Tom Mason dream about what pre-war life could have been. We find this kind of thing in the season 6 of LOST with the flash sideways which is a kind of afterlife world.

The love triangle. In Falling Skies you have this kind of love triangle with Maggie, Hal and Karen in the episode Homecoming in season 2 when Karen comes back. We see that Hal has still feelings for her even if he chose Maggie. After all, he never broke up with Karen, she had been captured. In LOST, the love triangle has a bigger importance with Jack Shephard, James « Sawyer » Ford, Kate Austen, Juliet Burke throughout the show where Jack loves Juliet then Kate, Sawyer is in love with Kate but she disappears and he is going to love Juliet. Sawyer finally ends up with Juliet whereas Jack ends up with Kate.

One last thing about this, the ending of Strange Brew in Falling Skies where Tom Mason is walking away from his house with this kind of sad music but not completely sad. We find this kind of music in LOST with moments like these.
