Love in Vain - S4-E14

Trivia: The reptile-like aliens in this episode are based on the Brood, an insect-like alien species from the comics. Apparently the Fox censors found the Brood from the comics to be too scary for young children, so their appearance was changed and their name was changed to the Colony. Although a Brood alien can be seen in the season 2 episode "Mojovision" and a Brood queen can be seen in the season 3 episode "Cold Comfort."
