Extant Season 1 Episode 13: Ascension (season finale)

5 second plot: Molly flies up to the Seraphim to save her colleague and redirect the space station away from it's collision course with earth. John finds the bomb inside Ethan. But it's not easy to remove it. The offspring takes over the space command center and tries to stop Molly.

5 second review: It's pretty cool they did a 2001 reference with Ben. 'I'm afraid I can't do that.' Classic. The whole idea of spores attacking is awesome and the futuristic aspects of the show are great. But there are lots of things in this episode that annoyed me. Like the box that says 'Plan C' when they were just talking about plan A and plan B. Or the fact that they are talking about everyday feelings when they have a killer ET kid walking around, an explosive robot-kid and a spouse that is going on a suicide mission. You would think they'd be a bit more stressed.
