Pairing: Jack Landry/Erica Evans
Blurb: Giant spaceships appear over 29 major cities throughout the world, and Anna, the beautiful and charismatic leader of the extraterrestrial "Visitors", declares that they come in peace. The Visitors claim to only need a small amount of Earth's resources, in exchange for which they will share their advanced technological and medical knowledge. A small number of humans begin to doubt the sincerity of the seemingly benevolent Visitors and discover that the aliens are actually reptilian humanoids wearing pseudo-human skin, have spent decades infiltrating human governments, businesses, and religious institutions, and are now in the final stages of their plan to take over the Earth. A resistance is formed, but it is further challenged as the Visitors have won favor among the people of Earth by curing a variety of diseases, and have recruited Earth's youth to serve them unknowingly as spies.
Two of the leaders of the human resistance are Erica Evans and Jack Landry. From the very first episode, there was a connection between the two of them, one that I would have loved to see explored, had the show gone on to season 3.
Erica Evans—an FBI counter-terrorism agent who becomes a member of and eventually the leader of the global Fifth Column.
Father Jack Landry—a Catholic priest and former U.S. Army chaplain whose unease with the Visitors is soon validated by his alliance with Erica over their discovery of the Visitors' secret. Over time, he finds his views of the Visitors conflict with the church hierarchy. He is eventually laicized after speaking out against the Visitors one time too many, following numerous warnings from the Visitor-controlled Vatican.
