This Spoils the Ending
In the Comic Book In the TV Show
   This does not happen in the comic book. Although Harry does travel to NYC to investigate another alien who used to live on Earth. Harry and Asta go to a UFO convention so he can look for an alien artifact to repair the device he will use to kill humanity. He tries to cut a small alien device out of a woman who claimed to have been implanted, but admits it is a BB from a rifle. Harry is confronted by a man who can see through his disguise. Harry cuts out a small tracking device from the man's neck and tells him that he will never see the aliens that stole his wife's unborn son or his son again because "the Grays got what they wanted".
   Harry's true alien form is revealed when the subject of a photo or video. Harry is only shown in his alien form in the comic. Harry's human appearance holds up when photographed. Harry normally appears in his human form, except to the boy Max who sees through his disguise and anyone else (Asta and her father) who saw him when he was seriously injured.
   Harry's ship is found right away after the crash. They have not located Harry yet although they do have several video and photographs of him in various places and are trying to locate Asta (based on her appearance, not her name) to track Harry. General McCallister's people eventually find Harry's spaceship and put it in a building to examine it. There they determine that Harry might be there to destroy humanity.
   Harry is tracked down near Patience by one of the agent looking for him. The agent reports to his boss that Patience is a dead end. Lisa and David track down Max and force him to tell who the alien is. He say it is Dr. Ethan Stone. Lisa kidnaps Dr. Stone and turns him over to McCallister who orders her to murder David. But she is interrupted by people on the street and flees with McCallister.
   Eventually Harry receives a message that a rescue ship is on the way. While Harry is awaiting rescue, he is confronted by one of the men in black agents. The agent says that seeing the alien ship is a dream come true; he takes Harry's place on the alien ship while Harry stays behind to be with Asta as he has come to greatly like life on Earth. Harry finds his ship in the building where it is hidden. Max and Asta also show up but are arrested by McCallister's men. Harry knocks them all out and rescues Asta. Astra convinces Harry not to destroy humanity. Harry leaves Earth without killing anyone else, but finds Max stowed away on his ship and will probably return him home. End of Season One.
