[Female Protagonists on SF TV] Erica Evans on V

Yesterday I was just an FBI agent and a mom,
but because of the Visitors our worlds
have turned upside down.

Erica Evans is a top agent with the FBI’s Counter Terrorist Division. She’s also a single mom doing the best she can raising a troubled teenaged son. After the Visitors arrive, Erica gets caught up in the greatest conspiracy and toughest fight of her life, to save humanity and to keep her son safe.

She has my son.
If I have to cross a line
to blow that bitch out of the sky… I will.

Giant spaceships appear over 29 major cities throughout the world, and Anna (Morena Baccarin), the beautiful and charismatic leader of the extra-terrestrial “Visitors”, claims to come in peace. The Visitors claim to only need a small amount of Earth’s resources, in exchange for which they will share their advanced technological and medical knowledge. As a small number of humans begin to doubt the sincerity of the seemingly benevolent Visitors, FBI counter-terrorism agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) discovers that the aliens have spent decades infiltrating human governments, businesses, and religious institutions and are now in the final stages of their plan to take over the Earth. Erica joins the resistance movement, which includes Ryan (Morris Chestnut), a Visitor sleeper agent who over time developed human emotions and now wants to save humanity. The Visitors have won favor among the people of Earth by curing a variety of diseases, and have recruited Earth’s youth — including Erica’s son Tyler (Logan Huffman) — to serve them unknowingly as spies.

We have to fight them
the same way they’re fighting us
– one step at a time.

Erica is a kick ass agent but it’s not always one sided.

If she’s gonna use my son
then I’m sure as hell gonna use her daughter.

The good news is that Erica Evans and V will be back next season.
