First There Were The Winchesters, Now There Are The Masons…

 
Drew Roy is the second-coming of Dean Winchester.

That got your attention, right? Well, I hate to say it but I *may* have been exaggerating a bit for effect. The actor himself doesn’t necessarily embody my favorite demon-hunter, but his Falling Skies character most certainly does!

Roy is Hal Mason, the eldest son of Tom (Noah Wyle) in the TNT drama about the post-alien invasion world. Though we aren’t privy to footage of the initial attacks, we certainly get the picture of what life is like with them walking among the rest of us. And perhaps a bit surprisingly, life in “Second Massachusetts” looks for the Masons a lot like what life traveling the greater United States has looked like for the Winchesters.

The Masons (and the rest of the “fighters” in this new form of society) have created their own law by which to live by. It is not simply a list of rules to keep hunters alive or a moral code to protect the innocent from what they always assumed was just fictional threats. In this case it is a very literal law, as there are no governments– city, state, or otherwise. Just as John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) lead other hunters like William Harvelle or even Bobby Singer, Tom Mason is leading these troops, too. And what’s a bigger battle: one against demons or one against aliens?
