I can't believe they did it again! This episode is fantastic so far, but SciFi gave away the big twist in the promo right before the episode started! Un-freakin-believable! So far, half an hour in, the reveal hasn't been given, but I know what it is since John's cut healed because of that stupid promo!

And no, I'm not talking about Weir's appearance.

You are so right. Last weeks promo gave out way too much information.

I did hear a part in the promo where they come face to face with themselves, but I wasn't thinking of the promo as I watched the ep, so was still pleasantly surprised when they revealed they were duplicates. The promo's are usually shown so quickly that I don't get most of it anyways.

I have to agree. It would have been so much better if we didn't know as much as we did going in. The twist midway through the episode would have been so much better.

Yes, Scifi are total morons when it comes to advertising. Let's stick "replicators doubles of the team offer to help defend the city of Atlantis" all over their site and ads. Boggles the mind, but obviously whoever they hired to write ad copy hasn't been fired yet for blowing all the plots.

I know exactly what you mean! 10 minutes into the episode I knew exactly what was going on!!!

From now on I am turning off the T.V. when the episode ends.

You mean people were actually surprised at the 'reveal'?

It was obvious that something wasn't right because they were wearing uniforms from last season but if people had steered cleared of spoilers, it might have been a bit of a surprise.

Heh, I have steered clear of spoilers, but that was the first thing I noticed.

I believe it was said in an interview that her last appearance this season will be in "Be All My Sins Remember'd". I forget whether it was Torri herself that said it or one of the producers.

I steered clear of any spoilers and hadn't noticed the uniforms and yes I was surprised at the reveal ;)

I'm the sort of loyal but casually superficial viewer these shows are written for and I appreciate this greatly :)

the only series which succeeds in pulling off evocative reveals without actually spoiling anything imo is battlestar galactica, where they show some split second flash forwards at the start of each episode, which is brilliant. I assume they manage this because they are actually scripted in the show and not collections of fairly long cut and pastes with dialogue afterwards like TV networks do.

it would certainly be much more logical for her to make an appearance in BAMSR rather than TLM (but hey we're not Vulcan right)

And I'm pretty sure the comment about them "bunching up under the arms" was a nod to the real reason the cast wanted new ones this year.

wtf is wrong with the producers?! It's like they're trying to kill the show

I don't see where they were trying to kill off the show. It might be derivative of past episodes but it didn't copy any one of them exactly and did infuse something new.

Avoided Spoilers? The lead in commercial that aired directly before the episode did was a promo that gave away every twist in the episode.

It's Sci Fi that's screwing with the ads. The producers don't put them together.

Can you please put that into English?

Not where I'm from. I guess that commercial aired only in America? Besides was this commercial cut&pasted by the TV station itself? That would explain the level of phail it had...
