It is soon revealed that the aliens want specifically to speak with Tom, since his son is still under the influence of the Harness conversion process, due to it being removed too late. In exchange for going with the aliens Tom's son would be released from the process; with no other option Tom is forced to leave with the aliens, ending the first season.

After being detained for an unspecified length of time, Tom is brought before an Overlord to hear a proposition.
Humans will be allowed to live in neutral zones in exchange for the surrender of the Resistance. Tom however sees this as nothing more than a prison camp, arguing with the aliens that their view of humanity as violent and savage is ironic when they attacked mankind in such a genocidal manner. Tom refuses to be relocated, and is released unarmed from the ship where a skitter and mech are waiting as a firing squad.
Of the released captives, only Tom is allowed to survive by Red Eye, the rebel skitter's leader. Red Eye soon reveals to the resistance that the Overlords invaded his homeworld years prior to the invasion of earth where they ravaged the planet and enslaved the population, converting them into Skitters.
However, in that time, some of the skitters had found a way to oppose the Overlord's control, rendering the harnesses useless. By the time of the Earth invasion a small resistance movement had arisen in the skitter ranks, who became more active after having been inspired by humanity's defiance in the face of extinction.
Fearful of their own slaves revolting, the Overlords attempted to recapture Ben Mason who had been in contact with the rebellion leader Red Eye. Their plan to capture him nearly succeeds, but is stopped by the arrival of the 2nd Mass.

Unbeknownst to them, the Overlord is the sole military commander of the eastern half of North America. The Second Massachusetts and the Skitter Rebellion unite and launch an attack on an unknown Espheni weapon site, where they know the Overlord will be. Invading the facility, the 2nd Mass is baffled when the weapon is aimed at the sky rather than at them, hinting at the arrival of the Volm. Upon setting plastic explosives at the base of the facility, they are captured by a horde of Skitters and greeted by Karen.
After being tortured by her, members of the Skitter Rebellion rescue them. Within the turmoil of the battle, the leader of the Skitter Rebellion attacks the Overlord and is killed. Their battle reveals the previosly unknown fact that the Overlords are either armed with a blade strapped to their wrist, or they possess a sharpened spike as part of their anatomy. As the Overlord is killing Red Eye, Tom grabs the staff used to torture them with and proceeds to engage the Overlord.
The fight is very one sided, and is quickly over as Tom repeatedly smashes the Overlord's head. The strength of the Espheni species comes into question at this point, because the Overlord was capable of throwing Red Eye easily through the air, yet is unable to overpower Tom with a staff.
In the aftermath of the battle, pod-like ships rain down from the sky and one lands near the 2nd Mass.
Inside, a new alien emerges and it is presumed that the Overlords tried to stop this race of beings from entering Earth. After the Volm arrival, the Human Resistance, Skitter Rebellion, and the Volm destroy Espheni bases all along the Eastern coast of North America, liberating large swaths of land from them. To counter this, the Espheni place Karen in charge of all Espheni operations in the Eastern half of North America, replacing the previous Overlord.
The Espheni also prepare to connect the Motherships across the world in a grid to slowly irradiate the planet, which would kill all non-harnessed life. Knowing that the Human Resistance and Volm will attempt to destroy a Mothership in one of four cities, they capture Tom and desperately try to extract the information from him, using hallucinations of a pre-invasion world to get him to reveal the location they plan to attack.
However, Tom realizes what is going on and resists the dream. After Tom escapes, the Volm and Human Resistance destroy the Boston Mothership with a Volm Weapon, taking out the grid and allowing a large Volm ship to land on Earth with reinforcements.
The Espheni retreat to the Northern areas of the world, leaving most of the planet to the Volm and Humans. The Espheni then attack the Volm refugees in the Alicante System of the Milky Way Galaxy, forcing most of the Volm to leave Earth to defend their race, leaving only a few recon teams on Earth.
The Espheni then take back most of the planet, capturing human adults and placing them in ghetto camps across the globe. Large amounts of human children are seperated from adults and instead of being harnessed, are sent to re-education camps to be brainwashed into serving the Espheni.
Among the chaos caused by this, their ancient pursuers have finally arrived in the Solar System. Following the destruction of their power coreall mechanized Espheni technology has either gone offline or has a significantly reduced amount of energy, an example seen when several mega-mechs attempted to attack the 2nd Mass but only were able to power themselves for a few seconds.
Espheni aircraft and spacecraft in the vicinity of Earth has also been affected, resulting in numerous beamers crashing to Earth and several Overlords fleeing Earth.
The Espheni, however, continue to maintain control of large sections of the planet and have begun regrouping. All ghettos have also run out of power, resulting in their walls coming down, in turn resulting in a mass exodus by many human prisoners and a limit to their goal of human skitterization, as both the stationary and portable mutation devices no longer are able to continue processing humans and fresh harnesses appear to no longer work.
One Overlord whose beamer crashed to Earth from space attempted to hide out in a nearby high school close to the 2nd Mass stronghold at Chinatown and began taking control of the skitters and hornets immediately surrounding the area, plotting to either protect himself or attack the 2nd Mass.
Whatever his plans, the 2nd Mass were ultimately influenced by the Dornia who led them to his location, where Tom Mason killed him. Another Overlord began plotting to use the already skitterized humans to attack the resistance groups and use any remaining Espheni power to reproduce hornets and skitters, but was stabbed and captured by Hal Mason.
The 2nd Mass used techniques to get inside the Overlord's brain, and destroyed the hatchlings which were reproducing the skitters and hornets. Anthony later murdered it when it was trying to use the Shadow Plane to communicate with other Overlords. Despite several setbacks, the Dornia's arrival and the greater success of the resistance has forced the Espheni to begin construction of a as-of-yet unknown weapon which could turn the war back in their favor, while the Dornia have begun constructing their own unknown weapon to supposedly render the Espheni extinct.
Following the destruction of the Espheni power station, the 2nd Mass has begun a march on Washington, DC to defeat the Espheni once and for all, collecting other militia groups along the way.
The Dornia reveal to Tom Mason that this being is actually the Espheni queen who only comes to a planet when victory is certain. They supply Tom Mason with a weapon that when used in the queen's presence, will wipe out the Espheni. After discovering that the Espheni have erected a powerful defensive wall around the city, Tom Mason decides that instead of an all-out attack on the Lincoln Memorial, they will launch a surgical strike to assassinate the queen. While the other militias assault the wall directly and create a distraction, Tom and Colonel Weaver lead a small team to the Lincoln Memorial through the city's service tunnels.
Tom is eventually separated from his team, but reaches the Lincoln Memorial alone. In the ruins of the Memorial, Tom and the Espheni queen come face to face and the queen explains the Espheni's history with Earth and why she wants humanity destroyed.
When the queen starts draining his blood, Tom infects himself with the Dornia bioweapon. The virus passes through his blood into the queen, killing her. With the queen's death, all the other Espheni start dying and explode into ashes one by one, rendering the race extinct and freeing the Earth from their rule.
Biology Edit Overlords are tall humanoid bipeds with smooth gray skin, standing roughly twice as tall as a human and three times as tall as a skitter, though compared to a human their body is skinny and elongated. Their graceful gait indicates that they are able to move about easily in Earth gravity. Their overall features are somewhat fleshy and blubbery, though their proportions are quite skinny so they do not appear bloated.
I was a little cautious about wanting to do science fiction again. But it was more of a drama story, more of a family story. I liked that and I wanted to work with Spielberg.

And yet, you want to devour the next episode immediately. It'll raise the summer-TV bar significantly.
