As expected without us knowing who the culprit was the Spy ended up shooting Manchester.
Tom's Guilt and the Birth of his daughter
The next scene of Falling Skies showed Tom feeling guilty as the thought he was responsible for Manchester's death. The weapon that was used for the kill looked like some sort of a military one which helped narrow down the suspects.

Military's Raid on Skitter Base, Anne and Tom's Weird Baby
The military Leaders then planned to raid the skitter base and were worried that the attack might end up causing the nuclear reactor to leak. Tom met an expert named Dr. Cadar in Charleston and wanted to know if could help keep the reactor from raining radiation on everyone in charleston.
Anne and Tom's baby Alexis was very strange. She was just weeks old but had already started talking and moving and was maturing very early which left Anne worried.
Dr. Cadar on the other hand explained them how to destroy the reactor without causing much harm. It was very complicated for anyone else apart from him to do. He eventually agreed to go on the mission as it was an important one which could help them really get one up over Eshveni.
Another Scene at Falling Skies 09/06/2013 saw Maj, Weaver and his team go towards the nuclear power plant for a sneak attack. On the other side, the spy sneaked into the military HQ and found out about the attack plans and sent it to Karen and the army. Weaver's men ended up being attacked ferociously, but it all ended up being a plan where the spy was actually meant to find out what he did. The distraction was to allow Tom to lead another team into the power plant from a different side.

Dr Cadara's glasses ended up breaking in the process after which he instructed Tom to do most of the work.

An assessment was later made at Charleston to know how much they lost to win the battle. Tom was excited for the Volm to finish their mega weapon. Weaver on the other hand responded by telling tom that he did not even know what the weapon did.
