The series doles out clues more parsimoniously than Scrooge did money.
One step forward into clarity and 140 steps backward into complication and commotion.
So far events come down on the side of harsh actions that the ETs seem to feel called upon to make – Sophia drops a hint that someone will have to be dealt with harshly, a would-be informant among the ETs is killed by his girlfriend to keep him from talking. Someone is after Sean Walker, but no telling who.

At the same time the “dead” passengers from the plane begin to wake up. Right at the end.
