"'War Of The Worlds' on Epix has been a really good binge-watch so far," another fan said. 

Right from the very beginning, 'War of the Worlds' has presented a grim narrative that's chock-full of mystery. Even now, at the end of the first season, we still don't know why the aliens came to Earth or what their purpose is.

To make things even more complicated, the finale revealed that one of the alien ships holds what appears to be a human on life-support with the same tattoo that Emily Gresham (Daisy Edgar-Jones) got in the pilot episode. Seeing as this is a sci-fi show, there could be any number of explanations for this including time-travel but whatever the reasons are, we're certain Emily is at the heart of it all and we can't wait to see where the next season will take this story.
