In an attempt to generate interest for "V" which has been absent from the screen for more than 6 months now, ABC releases the first 14 minutes of season premiere. The January 4 episode is titled "Red Rain" and it kicks off with Erica waking up from unconsciousness only to find Tyler dies in front of her. There's a twist to this though.
With Red Sky unleashed on the planet, the world is on the brink of war and there is chaos all around. Ryan is being kept in isolation on the mothership since Anna wants to experiment on his hybrid baby. Seeking redemption for being used by Anna, Chad wants to fight with the Fifth Column. Erica goes on a journey to find a scientist who can give her the answers to what Red Sky is and it's there she learns the horrifying secret of what the Visitors are planning to do.
The lengthy footage includes Ryan returning to Earth as well as the first look of hybrid baby between human and visitor.
