In the latest "Falling Skies" episode, Tom, Weaver and Cochise separated from the rest of the 2nd Mass ghetto escapees and the Volm unit to rescue Matt, and though that was successful and Matt is back with his father, there were a couple of hiccups. Weaver found out that his daughter had been skitterized but she died saving him, proving the Espheni's latest plan is flawed. Mira almost escaped with Matt, only to stay behind to lure a skitter away from the only way out.

Meanwhile, Hal was left in charge and had to make the decision to leave the rendezvous point with mechs in the area. The 2nd Mass gained a new member after Pope met Sara at a nearby farm while disobeying orders and going to get fuel. In Chinatown, Anne, Maggie and Ben confronted Lexi about her Espheni alliance and ended up taking the Monk captive.

In this next episode, in the woods following rescuing Matt, Tom encounters two mysterious strangers, who attack his family before embarking with him on a violent journey. Hal faces almost insurmountable odds as he tries to lead his group to a place of perceived safety. Also, Lexi and Anne have a difference of opinions, resulting in dangerous consequences. Mira Sorvino, Treva Etienne and Robert Sean Leonard guest star.

The "Mind Wars" promo shows Tom in quite a bit of trouble. Not only is he on the Espheni's Most Wanted List, but he's also going to be dealing with the mysterious strangers on the road. "I want to know what you did to my son," Tom says. Is something going to happen to Matt? Plus, Pope and Sara continue to team up against the enemy and Anne is desperate to find a way to save her daughter.

Plus, check out the slideshow to see three promotional photos from "Mind Wars" of Tom and Weaver in the woods and Tom and Matt looking at a map. Then, in case you missed them, there are two photos of Lexi's cocoon, which will play a pivotal part in the July 27 episode.

"Falling Skies" season 4 airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on TNT. What do you think of this episode 5 "Mind Wars" preview?
