“The Event” Presents No Obstacles to Disclosure – So Far

September 27, 2010


Just like a cowboy movie, "The Event" divides down into white hats and black hats

Well, there was a tremendous amount of to-ing and fro-ing in “The Event,” Episode 2, but the basic resolution of the drama, in my opinion, has already been established and certainly my question has been answered well enough that I’m willing to bet money on the outcome.

I could write paragraph after paragraph on what has happened but here is the bottom line.

The two leaders – the President and Sophia – have been introduced. Both have been shown to be mature, responsible, and courageous leaders.

Blake Sterling - Black Hat

Sophia - White Hat

The President - White Hat

The “Big Question” in the series has been established as: Do the agendas of the two leaders line up?

But the question has already been resolved in seed form.

There are two ways the white hats and the black hats approach conflict with each other, the black hats seeking power, the white hats defending against them.

One is the usual approach and that’s for all the white hats to realize they have a common agenda against all the black hats and to collaborate to defeat them.

The alliance of white hats emerges from the conflict as trusted associates.

The second is less common. The league of white hats gets together because their leaders see each other as trustworthy, whether or not they share a common agenda. In the end, they part but resolve to be on each other’s side if needed in the future.

The second theme is played out mostly when grand figures or very unusual circumstances are being depicted.

I think “The Event” will fall into the second category.

The unusual circumstances are “extraterrestrial meets terrestrial.” The two leaders are being groomed in our eyes as grand figures.

I predict that they will end up  trusting each other on the basis that each is, in the final analysis, a trustworthy character.

There are in the background a large number of black hats or untrustworthy characters – some villainous, some misled, some ignorant – both terrestrials and extraterrestrials.

The national security official, Blake Sterling, has been established as devious, secretive, and menacing.  One ET has been established as impatient, forceful, and also menacing.

At least Blake and his black operatives will probably be established as the black hats who share a seemingly-common agenda with the President, but not really.

The President, I predict, will align with Sophia even though their agendas will be represented as appearing different – or at least unknown, in Sophia’s case. The question will be: Will the President give Sophia the benefit of the doubt because she appears trustworthy?

The misdoings of the black hats in the plot provide the material to string the series out for as long as the producers want to string it out.

Complication and coincidence, surge and setback, will be the stuff of this serial if it’s like all others.

But we can see that the two leading figures are already being built up as exemplary characters in our eyes and therein will lie the eventual outworking of the plot.

I predict it will resolve itself by playing out the theme that there are good people and bad people in all species – terrestrial and extraterrestrial – and that – and here comes the moral – if the good people all get together, we can get along.

So that is my prediction.

And, on the basis of that prediction, I take the further step of saying that, yes, indeed, this series, if it continues along the same lines established so far, will present the ETs in an overall positive light – with a few exceptions as one would see in any social situation, or, more to the point, in any TV serial.

I say it presents no obstacles to disclosure – so far – and I think it will present none ultimately.

Chris has said in his comment on the drama that it is a “timed, disclosure-positive primer for public consumption.” I agree.

So we look like we may have passed another hurdle: a prime-time mainstream-media serial has represented at least some ETs in a positive light, which for me clears away another hurdle to disclosure.

No additional shovelling needs be done so far as a result of “The Event” – so far.

And the mainstream media in the form of MSNBC seems to have separated itself by one more step from its captive past.

Postcript. Perhaps I should mention that all the passengers on the airplane were killed.  There may be some audience members who wonder whether the ETs did it. I myself never thought that for a moment, but I’m biased. It seemed pretty clear to me that it will be proven that the ETs didn’t kill them, but that the national-security Black Hats did.

    Well, I don’t have TV so I’m missing the boat BUT here’s one for you…a now-retired friend who occupied the only peace keeping office within the Pentagon related to us in the 1980’s that the ‘public is being prepared” for disclosure through the increase in media; e.g., movies, advertisements etc. Intrigue is inviting to main stream and exposure helps remove the emotional edge from actual events. It’s CPR training…

    Concerning alllll those apparently dead people …. my thoughts are that later on in a another episode down the road … they’ll explain that mass site of dead bodies … as identical copies of the original ones …

    And the original ones will be found alive and very well ….. where ever that group of missing celestials will be found …

    The Premiere was on Bravo, UPN, Syfy and one more I can’t remember. Very interesting. Again, I’ve never seen this before.

    BRAVO TV, for one. Was channel surfing & just happened upon it @ 5pm yesterday. With lots of promos for part 2 to air on NBC later that night.

    In reading your comments, Steve, it occurs to me what a huge challenge it is to communicate to the viewing public the truth — not just about positive E.T. presence — but about the reality of “black hats” in the U.S. government.

    That communication — if done well — could be a true show-stopper, meaning that if the public becomes conversant in this communication as a current reality, it will likely offset the negative-alien meme completely, and leave the “V” series far behind in the dust….

    I agree with the postscript because of the premise that if the Et’s had the ability and did teleport an airplane from one place to another, then they could have just as easily disintegrated it if they desired.

    Did anyone else notice that the Premier Episode of The Event was on again last night… but on 4 FOUR Major Stations???? I’ve never seen a premier episode from a major television station shown on several other television stations while still in its first season. It seems to me that “someone” really wants the premise of The Event broadcasted to the public on as many channels possible. I personally believe that public acceptance and attitude are being measured in preparation for the real thing.
