Falling Skies, Biological skitter eye worm egg

original movie prop

Seasons 2 through 5 - The Espheni eye worm (also known as a "probe" or "eye bug") is an insidious repeat offender throughout the "Falling Skies" series. A pre-programmed, biomechanical parasite, the Eye Worm resembles an 6-legged slimy insect with teeth and a scorpion-like tail. Controlled by its Espheni master at a remote location, the Eye Worm burrows beneath the skin and resides inside the victim's body to do its master's bidding - from simple spying to complete mind control. Season 2, Episode 10, 36:35 minutes - As Hal Mason (Drew Roy) discovers, in a creepy illustration of the Eye Worm's movements across his face, the Eye Worm can alter your thoughts, physicality, and motives. Season 3, Episode 10 (41:02 minutes) - Incorrectly removing an Eye Worm causes death to the victim, but half-Espheni Lexi (Scarlett Byrne) naturally cures Lourdes (Seychelle Gabrielle) by removing a host of Eye Worms that had driven Lourdes mad enough to assassinate President Hathaway (Stephen Collins). In Season 3, Episode 6 (27:33 minutes), the Rebel Skitter called "Paint Face" explains how Eye Worm removal works and presents his biological hunter-killer egg that may succeed in removing the Eye Worm that Karen (Jesse Schram) implanted in the human Hal Mason (Drew Roy). However, if the Eye Worm is not still inside of Hal, the procedure will kill him. Paint Face warns that this is an aggressive remedy of last resort, as the hunter-killer works on a molecular level to pursue the Eye Worm and was designed to work within Skitter anatomy. Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) takes the hunter-killer egg, assesses his gut instinct, and decides to proceed. Season 3, Episode 6 (31:20 minutes) - In the operation to remove Hal's Eye Worm against his protests, Lourdes drills open the biological hunter-killer egg and inserts a multi-pronged clamp to extract a clear, viscous liquid which is immediately freeze-dried to form an exterior cocoon. Lourdes then lowers the cocoon to Hal's face and opens the clamp. A plethora of micro-organisms, like black grains of sand, emerge and swarm Hal's face before entering his eyes, nose, and mouth. After a few vein popping, contortionist moments, Hal lays still while a silver liquid falls from his mouth onto the table - taking the eye worm with it. The Skitter biological hunter-killer egg is made of acrylic pulp. Approx. 6" long.
