RECAP: At the end of Episode Two of the 3-Part series “Childhood’s End,” the children have this strange, faraway look in their eyes. “What is happening with our children?” Clearly, the alien world has an interest in them, for purposes that are yet unknown. Peretta demands that Karellen come clean and divulge the secret purposes he has kept from the earthlings. When he refuses to answer, Peretta grabs Ricky’s shotgun and shoots him. He might have died had not Ricky revived him with the power syringe Karellen has given him to heal his own fatal illness. “Karellen, what happens to the children?” Ricky asks. The episode ends with Amy Greggson giving birth to Jennifer, an infant with those now familiar strangely glowing eyes. This is the child the Overlords have selected to lead earth to its new destiny.
