An Overseer named Ahpossno comes to Earth to take the slaves, and all humans, back to the mothership.
A commercial for New Menu foodstuffs, in which a Newcomer woman serves her young son Max a helping of uncooked beef, liver and chicken, is playing on one of the televisions in the electronics shop. This was a real commercial designed to promote Alien Nation (1989) which aired on Fox prior to the series' premiere on September 18, 1989. This is evidenced by the fact that "© 1989 Fox Broadcasting Co." appears on the bottom of the screen as the commercial ends. The promo initially obscured the Newcomers' alien status by not showing the woman's face and having her son Max wear a rain jacket hood. Furthermore, the prominent appearance of a cat was meant to suggest that the woman was in fact going to serve the uncooked meat to her pet rather than her son. The promo was previously shown in Alien Nation: Eyewitness News (1990).
Cathy's spots are noticeably different from their appearance in Alien Nation (1989).
The US video release contains several very brief scenes not shown on its first release on Fox Television in the U.S. For example, there's a brief addition to the scene where Ahpossno boards his craft. After you see the trolly in LA go by following Ahpossno's departure from the mother ship, you see the delivery man buying the flowers, and showing hate for Newcomers. A scene shows Penny welcoming the Franciscos home after their hospitalizaion.
