— Red Eye's last words to Tom.
"Red Eye" was a member of the Skitter Resistance.
This skitter was on the Overlord's ship while Tom Mason was captured. After briefly torturing Tom, it along with Karen Nadler escorted him to an Overlord to discuss humanity's surrender. After a tense discussion, Tom overpowered the Skitter, taking its weapon, and briefly hurt the Overlord, the Skitter soon knocked Tom out. After Tom and the others were released the Skitter ordered the Mech it was with to kill all the people except Tom.
Later in Shall We Gather at the River it was seen, slightly injured near the 2nd Mass, the bug that was taken out of Tom crawls into its left eye.
In the episode Love and Other Acts of Courage, Red Eye sends Rick back to the Second Mass and asks to be taken back to base. While there Red Eye tells Tom Mason through Rick that the Overlords did the same thing to the Skitter's home planet that they are doing now, and that he is the leader of a group Skitters resisting the Overlords and offers Tom Mason the chance to form an alliance between the Second Mass and the Skitter Rebellion. Red Eye later escapes the base after Captain Weaver tried to have him killed because of Rick's intervention.
In A More Perfect Union Red eye holds meeting with Tom, speaking through Ben, to discuss a plan of attack on the overlord weapon. Later, during said attack, Red Eye is killed by Karen's Master.
- This is the first Skitter with a noticeable difference from other Skitters, its right eye is completely red.
- In regards to his eye Executive Producer Remi Aubuchon states: "Since all skitters look alike, we wanted to make sure you could recognize him, explaining why he has a red eye."
