I seriously did NOT want to watch this because I was afraid of a cliffhanger. This IS a 2part episode, but there is no To Be Continued or even a cliffhander.

I really don't think this is a 2parter.. :\

Thats like Camelot wasn't a cliffhanger. There was no "to be continued" but left you wondering about the next episode

Good question. Yes and No. It is just a continues Story Arc. However I believe "Spoils of War" is defintiley the 2nd part of BAMSR!

According to the episode guides, it is a two parter. It's just not one with a stupid cliffhanger ending. For once they didn't feel the need to leave it as a dramatic "what'll happen next?" hanging.

It was a light almost cliffhanger ending that wasn't a cliffhanger. I loved the ending.

Why does it matter if this is Part 1 of 2? Just wait for "Be All My Sins Remember'd" on January 4th.

I'm not complaining, in fact I'm relieved they did it this way. I've always been annoyed by the cliffhanger where someone may/may not die but you know they won't and yet they keep it all suspenseful when it doesn't need to be.

How this first part ended is how more "cliffhangers" ought to end.

Well, why haven't the repliclones healed themselves. The trauma wasn't so bad that they can't heal. Maybe not sheppard, but definitely the rest. Heck, it could be a 2 parter in that the repliclones somehow take out the replicator guards and hijack the aurora class. Heck, they brought an aurora class ship to the neutral planet. o_O.

But, as I posted in my thread, it's a 2 parter in that the repliclones and SGA team didn't destroy the control crystal, meaning that the replicators can take the DHD and find the exact location of new atlantis.

The clones were all on the floor with blood everywhere. Sheppard was the only one who appeared to be alive, but he was shot by an Asuran. They all died so their real selves could live. However, I had hoped that Weir would return with them and resume her original self's life. :(

Healing trauma is a lot easier than healing Cancer. If Human's inefficiently made nanites can heal cancer, Replicator-created nanites can revive the team from a jumper crash. None of them were incinerated, only damaged. There's no body part that requires recreation, only regeneration. They're alive. :P

How about the repli-sheppard being shot, was it stun or kill? That's the cliffhanger here ;)

The only cliffhanger was the ending. If you watched to the credits, you heard all the chirping, with Rodney going ".... crap!"

Well maybe Teyla and Wier but Rodney and Sheppard are dead. Sheppard got shot in the head and Rodney was bleeding pints of blood all over a suit case, even with nanites, if you loose that much blood your dead.

This is a prime example of where seatbelts could have saved lives!!! Buckle up or DIE!!!!!;)

Blood is actually pretty easy to re-manufacture, especially with devices that are healing you at a high rate.

I think with this 2 parter...that BAMSR is more a continuation rather than a conclusion

yup we now know how big the replicator fleet is and considering it's our fault this happen might as well have a just keep trucking ahead. :)

They're all going to be destroyed, though. There's no way tptb will let the humans control an armada of replicator ships.

Got that right. Any alien spaceships we get don't last more than a week or two before we get 'em blown up. Don't do too well with the Asgard made ships either!

The impact of the crash should have done some considerable damage to the occupants, save Weir, who as a replicator doesn't have internal organs that can rupture and bleed out. As for Sheppard, looks like he got it in either hte chest or head, but I'm pretty sure RepliTeam is dead. RepliWeir, on the other hand, who knows?

Yeah, this is one two parter that I won't be worrying myself to death about what happens next, I was thinking to myself that it wouldn't be but McKay activating the Aurora tracking device kind of set the mood for a mid-season two parter.

No, she was as human as the rest were. She had the nanites in her and would have suffered as much or little as the other clones did.

I thought that was Ronon on the suitcase and Rodney was in the chair next to Sheppard.

It was a clifhanger just like Camelot was just without the "to be continued."
