Falling Skies doesn't return for a couple months, but we got the scoop on what's coming up on season 4 from the show's fierce women. Sarah Carter (Maggie), Moon Bloodgood (Anne) and Seychelle Gabriel (Lourdes) spoke with journalists at this month's Wondercon.

Maggie will be involved in a new love triangle with Hal and the third is not Karen. It's Maggie's turn! She has two men interested in her and the new love is a shocker. An aged Lexi will play a pivotal role. Can the half-human half-alien offspring be trusted? 

Check out the video interviews and highlights.
