SPOLIERS FOR NEW SGA EPISODE!
Here's my review for "Be All My Sins Remember'd". I'm sorry it's so long, but for some reason, LJ cut doesn't work on my computer... grrr....
First off, this was an amazing episode! Touching on the technical aspects before I start my J/T rant, the special effects were great. The exploding planet was one of the coolest things I’ve seen on TV, since the shot was done in a way that you were actually in the explosion, and not looking at the debris spewing from a ways back. As well, the collection of Wraith, earth and Larrin’s ships all going into hyperspace together looked really cool.
When Teyla looked into John’s eyes and said “I’m pregnant, John”, I almost screamed out loud from sheer happiness!!! She finally told them! John’s reaction was to be expected, though. At first, he was just stunned and still taking in the news, but then he went full-throttle protective, maybe a bit harshly, but still very sweet in his own way. He’s going to be absorbing the news for a while (aka, the next few episodes), but he’ll come round when he’s ready. There was a hurt look in his eyes when she mentioned that she’d known for two months, and hadn’t told anyone.
Ronon, on the other hand, was, as much as I don’t like to say it, way kinder than John. He congratulated her and then promised that they’d do as much as they could to find her people. And last but not least, he took her hand! It was sweet of him. As they walked off, he started to talk to her about names (Ronon for a girl! LOL), just as a caring friend and not angry at all. But, he’d have no reason to get angry because he sees her as only a friend, unlike poor John who really needs to gather his feelings together and have a nice, shippy, long talk to Teyla. Perhaps Ronon will talk to John about Teyla, and hopefully he’ll knock some sense into him. Now the only one who doesn’t know is McKay...!
Carter’s reaction to the big reveal just made me laugh. A stunned “wow” and “who’s the father?” is the easy-going reaction that could be expected from Sam. John’s response to “who’s the father?” was back to the stunned, dumb-founded reaction like when he first heard the happy news. He seemed to have gotten some hold on himself, but when the word “father” was tossed around, it set him off balance again. Poor guy.
As for Larrin, all I can say is BLEH. She is such a freaking flirt! And Shep is all head-over-heels whenever she’s around. I’m glad that her ships could help out with the Replicator fight, but that as far as it should go. When John looked down her shirt, I spent a little while yelling at John for being such a silly, naïve, 12 year-old boy!
Lastly, When Carter was all in Ellis’ face after he yelled at McKay was awesome! It really showed how much power she had, as leader of Atlantis, and how totally kick *** she could be! I was pointing and laughing at Ellis. He shut up just like that when she snapped at him.:) As well, I LOVE what they did for Elizabeth at the end. I’m no Sparky, but I do miss her a lot. She’s gonna be kicking some butt pretty darn soon!
All in all, great episode! Wish we could’ve seen more of Teyla, though.... No doubt we will in Spoils of War! Can’t wait for next week!!!!
