for me i think Elliot in last stand hearing the horns and the jaffa coming at him was probably one of the best ending

also the funny ending to wormhole xterme

and there was a great ending in season 9 with great music at the end as it was showing brad and Roberts name but i can't remember the name of the episode

so what do you people think> any opinions

starathena74 -- you nailed it. That's my favorite too. Just the PERFECT end to the episode, the season, and it would have been the perfect end of the series had they not managed to get a ninth season deal. It was just a great moment.

Threads ending was better IMO, the fish thing was just wasnt needed at the end of Moebius, so the Threads version gets my vote

The ending to Wormhole Extreme - "We'll fix it in post" (as the real ship descends)

In Politics when SG-1 turns and looks out the briefing room window and look down on the Stargate. The music, the faces, evrythingworks without anybody even saying a word.

Window of Opportunity definitely had a good ending. We got to see O'Neill talk about his son.

My favorite ending is the end of Reckoning 2, with all the gates opening at the same, all members of SG1 fighting in diferent places and the effect of the weapon.
A also like the end of Threads, and the end od Revisions (I think, the last episode of season 5) the first episode where Daniel is dead, the rest of SG1 are going out of the SGC when there's wind, I like very much the music of this part.

Actually, I forgot that there was the 'Behind the scenes of Wormhole Extreme mini-doc' at the end of the episode. To that end - "What a minute, I'm playing a fictional actor playing a fictional character on a fictional show? Do I get paid?" or whatever the ending was. FYI If you recall the scene, the actor playing Jack's alternate is Peter Deluise's brother.

While the fishing this at the end of Mobieus was nice, the Mobieus episodes themselves were horribly done IMO. Go back 5000 years and time and hope to not screw anything up? Please. Sam would know better, even if they others didn't. And Apparently the Pentagon approved that plan. Gimme a break.

The ending to Urgo could be interperated in so many ways it is really impossible to know EXACTLY what happened. And it has never been referenced since. Has there ever been official confirmation on what actually happened?

I like the one after Daniel dies and they feel the wind and you just know it's Daniel, also.

I also like the episode endings where ascended Daniel helps Jack and the one where he helps Teal'c. In both they end up in a hospital bed with Daniel visiting them one last time to help them realize that he was really there. I love those endings.

Wormhole X-treme is definitely my favorite humorous ending.

I also like the ending of Unnatural Selection where they betray Fifth's trust and the episode ends with Fifth frozen in time and that excellent look on his face that says he realizes they've betrayed him. Classic! I love it!:D

Sam/Jack and Daniel/Vala are fishing outside of Jack's cabin. The two couples are obviously TOGETHER and quite obviously married.

Wait, sorry we're discussing actually endings.

Reckoning one and two were both great. It was soo creepy when the earth stargate opened, the iris wouldnt close and the bugs started coming in. Very cool eps. And they all got wasted by that huge weapon. That should have been used as the season finale IMO. The Mobeus arc was horrible.

The Signal
November 10th, 2005, 01:28 PM
definately, Moebius was just a way of linking with SGA, a way of explaininghow they got the ZPM, nothing more

A matter of time....love the ending to that & The tok'ra part 2

Right. My two favorite endings:

1. Shades of Grey. Teal'c's pauses always bust my gut. It says to me that he's the one who actually lost in drawing the shortest straw, but given his imposing stature, gently persuaded Daniel to go to Jack's house.

2. Wormhole X-treme. The funniest ending in the history of funny endings. Need I say more.

The end of The Other Guys. Funny, kissing Sam, imagining of course.
On a different note, what's it called, The Other Side? Jack yells close the iris and says there was no way of procuring technology even though the guy pleaded to come back with them. The controversial ending.

November 10th, 2005, 02:07 PM
Probably the funniest ending I can remember off the top of my head was the ending of "Avenger 2.0". I absolutely loved O'Neill and Felger watching Carter and that doctor wrestle with each other. Very funny.
For a serious ending, I'd probably have to go with "Threads" or "The Lost City, Part 2". Seeing O'Neill frozen in that Ancient device was chilling. The ending of "Lockdown" wasn't too bad either. Loved how Anubis thought he was escaping, only to walk through to a barren ice planet.
There are many other endings I've thoroughly enjoyed, way too many to mention in fact. These are but a few off the top of my head.

I, too, really like the ending of The Other Guys--very funny. I also liked the end of Avenger, when Sam and the lab assistant(Chloe, I think her name is) are fighting over Felger. I also loved the little RDA move to stop Felger from stopping the fight--very cute.

Reckoning 2 was one of the best action endings... of course I would have to rewatch all my DVDs in close succession to determine if it is my favorite.

Favorite non-action "I can see that as a great series ending scene" would be the very end of Threads or Mobieus. Since I wasn’t a big fan of the Threads ep and I did like the funny twist in Mobieus I guess I would have to pick that version.

I always like the ending when someone's hurt or injured. lol sounds sad doesn't it? Like the endings of Abyss or Grace. It shows the love the team members have for each other. (good ship scenes too...) oh, and Moebius has got to have one of the BEST endings EVER! :rolleyes:

although the episode seems lacking IMO. i like the last scene in 'One False Step' with all the plants blooming.

solar wind
November 10th, 2005, 08:33 PM
I like the endings of Emancipation (though not the story), and Fire and Water(?) the one they thought Daniel had died (for the first time!:p ), when the team is walking off to the 'gate to go home and you hear them chatting. About Oprah, and selling Daniel's apartment.

And now I'm looking forward to seeing The Other Guys, don't know when I'll get to though

Now come on, as big of a shipper that I am, I have to say it's not moebius pt2 although it was soo squee worthy

but for the number one best stargate sg-1 ending, it just has to be Full Circle

lets face it it brought back everything that started stargate, it started on Abydos and ended on Abydos...I remembering crying at thay episode *sniff*

But if there was to be a combo best ending it would be Full Circle and Moebius pt2

Of the episodes already mentioned, Forever in a Day and There But For the Grace of God ("They're coming. They're coming.") were superb. Other endings I'm partial to:

Children of the Gods - Jack and Daniel vowing to find Skaara and Sha're (thus setting up the story arc of the next three seasons) and Gou'alded Kawalsky.

The Nox - "Fear not."

The Serpent's Lair - Spacemonkey!!!

Holiday - Everyone crowded around Ma'chello's deathbed as General Hammond grimly intones, "Welcome back SG-1."

"There But for the Grace of God" had such a damn creepy ending that I loved it.

"Prototype" I think had one of the best endings with Cam and Danny walking up the ramp emtying their clips. Just a great.

The end of Reckoning II was good, with a perfect mix of stuff resolved and cliffhanger. The replicators were finally defeated after a corking two-parter, but Daniel was DEAD!!

AGAIN!!!

I liked the end of The Curse. Pity we never saw Steven again.

I liked the end of Changeling. But then the whole episode was classy.

I liked the end of Exodus. Sam blew up a sun :D

Some of these have already been mentioned, buuut...

Heroes [II]
It was a surprisingly comforting conclusion to the death of Frasier. I thought the scene with Jack and Sam was especially well-done. And then the redemption of Bregman, new baby Janet, and Jack sitting down in front of the camera. Satisfyingly done.

Unnatural Selection
This is more chilling in hindsight, knowing what Fifth would become. Also, Jack's justification of it. It's also something to think about, Fifth's rage causing him to single-handedly destroy all the other human-form Reps. An eerie ending.

The Other Side
I love it when Jack is controversial. It also reveals a lot about Jack's stronger convictions.

Going back to the Jack/Sam scene, I just thought it was perfect. It shows that he really does care for her and love her, and vice versa, but it's not shmaltzy and over-done. It captures everything excellently. All-in-all, the episode is one of the best examples of the series, and what the show really should be like more often. Daniel is also in top form.

But now I'm digressing from the ending. :)

Bragi
March 8th, 2006, 09:49 PM
There's a reason I have it listed as my favorite episode.

It's their most well-written and well-acted episode, in my opinion.

And the moral of the story isn't rammed down your throat, like a lot of shows tend to do. They make their point subtly, and exceedingly well.

"Heroes II" is the best ending and "Window of Opportunity" leaves you speculating on what Daniel and Sam are trying to figure out what Jack did.

Fair game was with the system lords going to earth in season 3, seeing the asgard ship fly away was just classic.

The ending of Within the Serpent's Grasp I liked:
SG-1 looking out on earth.
I also like the endings of Emancipation and Fire and Water, with the team just talking and joking as they head to the Stargate and home.
Also Ethon made me go Wow. By the way, why was the episode named that?

I loved the ending to Reckoning, i always try to name all the planets when the gates open (but i cant). The slow music and SG1 fighting in all the different places was amazing. (Just a point i think i saw whaen i watched it, does jack switch guns from the big thing to P90 when theyre fighting replicators in the SGC?)

Also the wormhole extreme making of bit was great. "I'm Christian Bocher. I'm portraying the character of Raymond Gunne, who portrays the character of Dr. Levant, which is based on the character Daniel Jackson, portrayed by the actor Michael Shanks, originally portrayed by the actor James Spader…in the feature film"
