Spoilers for the War of the Worlds, Season 3 finale are present. In the end, the theme of War of the Worlds was repentance and second chances. and black holes and particle accelerators. Additionally, there are murderous robot dogs, genocidal future humans, and world-saving theoretical physics experiments. The main lesson to be learned after seeing these intelligent, dystopian seasons is to understand science and contact your mother.
Anna May Wong to be the first Asian American featured on US currency
All of the science-speak in season three was used. There were a lot of discussions about reversing the polarity of the neutron flow, with our main players being neurosurgeon Bill and astrophysicist Catherine, who were joined by rookie astronauts Richard and Juliet. Let’s dissect the main themes of the season finale below in case any of the more minute aspects were lost in the gravitational waves discussion.
One word of caution: Professor Brian Coxon is regrettably not employed by Den of Geek. I bet his evaluations of Doctor Who would be fantastic). Please don’t kill the messenger if the science presented below sounds dubious; it is completely based on the science fiction television series War of the Worlds. spoilers after this point.
Adina, Hiram, Richard, Juliet, and Catherine in the new timelines, as well as Bill in the original alien attack timeline, are included on the Season 3 dead list. Adina was shot by Zoe, Hiram was killed by Adina, the black hole dissipated after Richard and Juliet died, and Richard and Juliet drifted out into space (shot by killer robo-dog).
In the new timeline, Bill might still be alive. In that universe, his son arrived to build bridges while he was in a hospital coma himself, straddling two realities. He might still be able to awaken in this timeline despite having passed away in the original. But given that this is War of the Worlds, he will probably perish.
By the end of season three, Martha and Tom, who are expecting a human-future human hybrid child, Zoe, Kariem, Ash, who has reconciled with Hayley, Johannes, Catherine’s scientist/lover, Sam, the young man she promised to return for and did, Bill’s son Dan, and Catherine, Sophia, Nathan, and Celine in the original alien-attack timeline—which has since been fixed—are all still alive.
What did the director of the US Mint have to say about Anna May Wong?
An interesting fact: In the original reality, Catherine touched her mouth and seemed to feel Johannes’ touch, however in the alternate version, Johannes kissed Catherine on the lips after her life support was turned off. The link between the two universes may have persisted even after the black hole was sealed.
Bill. Or more particularly, Bill employs an alien ship that creates black holes and uses the energy from them to bend space and time. Bill is traveling back in time to a pre-invasion universe. The black hole appeared in the sky in the original timeline and on the edge of Earth’s atmosphere in the new timeline when Bill traveled back in time in the season two finale.
Here’s everything you need to know about Anna May Wong
In the OG timeline, the black hole was closer to Earth, hence people were more severely impacted by its catastrophic gravitational waves. Before going into a coma, as Tom and Sam’s parents had, Nathan and company could only afford to spend 45 minutes outside. The black hole in the new chronology didn’t fry people’s brains, but it did cause some of them to have images of the alien invasion they had experienced in the alternate world.
When Adina and her lackeys hitched a ride to an alternate reality with Bill Ward at the end of season two, they ended up stuck there without a way of getting back to their ships. Not only that, but they were still dying of organ failure caused by inherited genetic weaknesses and the virus Bill injected into their ancestor Emily in season two. So Adina, fuelled by her hatred of Bill Ward– whom she blamed for her people s illness – decided not to go quietly but to take humanity down with them.
Adina commissioned Martha’s brother Hiram to construct a particle accelerator in an East London warehouse. Using advanced alien mathematics and Catherine s published scientific theory on the effects of gravitational waves, the accelerator created a monopole (a French supermarket? – Ed) and drew the black hole on the edge of Earth s atmosphere closer to the planet. That intensified the gravitational waves the black hole was emitting, and if it had t been stopped, would have fried the brains of anybody who was t underground, just like the aliens’ original weapon in season one. The flock of starlings was a test case.
Luckily, Catherine and Bill and Richard and Juliet stopped Adina s plan from working before it killed billions.
When Did Anna May Wong Start Acting?
By transmitting waves of the same intensity through the black hole from both sides, one from each alternate reality. Catherine and Bill programmed a transmitter to the right frequency in the original reality and sent a signal through the black hole, while Richard and Juliet in the space station received it and transmitted a signal of the same frequency.
The idea, according to Catherine, was to unravel the relationship between quantum gravity and the fabric of space-time to break the entanglement created by the aliens’ micro black hole and dissipate the original black hole. It evaporated, the thermal spectrum dropped (whatever that means), and success! No more brain-frying in either reality.
Because the energy released when the black hole on the edge of Earth s atmosphere was closed caused a massive explosion. Earth s atmosphere protected the planet, which experienced a sonic boom and a momentary loss of gravity, but outside of Earth s atmosphere, the effects were more drastic and the space station disintegrated, leaving Richard and Juliet stranded out in space.
Though one of them could have used the pod to escape the space station before the plan was carried out, Juliet chose to remain behind with Richard because that was what he d seen in his black hole-influenced future vision. Future-her stayed with him for a reason, and so that s what she did.
A premise of season three is that the gravitational waves emitted by the black hole affect people s consciousness, giving them glimpses of alternate realities. That s why certain people in the new timeline (Sophia, Zoe, Kariem, Ash, the Home Office minister ) were seeing visions of the alien attack from the original timeline. What Juliet experienced just before she drifted out to die in space was an alternate reality in which she had t gone on the space mission but had instead continued her pregnancy and had a baby. Think of it as a little taster treat before she froze to death in space, now safe in the knowledge that in another reality, she’s happy and alive.
Anna May Wong starred in more than 60 films
Because they re all descended from his sister Emily (whom Bill pushed off a roof to stop her from giving rise to a race of genocidal future humans), his blood is a genetic match for their own. (It s sort of been forgotten thatTom is only Emily’s half-sister biologically, as they shared a biological mother – absent from this series – but not a father. Still, details, details). When the aliens invaded Earth, they stole babies and harvested organs and stem cells to transplant into themselves as a cure. Bill Ward though, created a virus and injected Emily with it so they would inherit a genetic weakness as well as muscular dystrophy from their father Sacha (also largely forgotten about this season).
In the OG timeline, Sophia came up with a plan to hasten the alien’s demise by giving them Tom s unconscious body (his brain had been fried by the black hole) and spiking his blood with warfarin. When they used the infected blood, it would cause the aliens to bleed internally and die even sooner.
Not all of them. In the new timeline, Martha is carrying Tom s baby in a symbolic resolution of the human vs future-human hatred plot thread. Presumably, that baby will survive as an emblem of how we just all have to get along. It’s a point worth making.
Anna May Wong passed away in 1961
As for the others, yes. They were all dying anyway. The ones that used the deliberately-infected-with-warfarin blood from an unconscious Tom certainly will.
One hasn’t been announced and that felt pretty final did t it? Although both realities survived after the black hole was closed, there s not much story potential left in either. Bill and Catherine are either dead or in a coma in each reality. In the original timeline, the aliens are dying out, and, give or take a few killer robot dogs, the human world is now safe to rebuild. In the alternate timeline, Adina s dead, and with her died the aliens’ murderous hatred of the humans. Martha and Tom’s baby symbolizes a kind of peace between the two types of humans.
