View Full Version : Lorne's status in season 5, spoilers for teyla's situation

I am not sure how Teyla's character will be affected by the baby. Frankly I try to keep away from spoilers. So if Teyla gets her baby back what if I had a thought how would you feel if Lorne was assigned to SGA-1 for the time being?

If Teyla is Off during these times should a new member be assigned to replace her?

Although Lorne feels more like the "SG-3 of Atlantis"

I have always thought, since we first were introduced to Lorne(in SGA, not in SG-1) that he should at least be a main cast member. Maybe not on Sheppard's team though.

TBA
May 18th, 2008, 10:13 AM
Doesn't have to be. Being a 'main' only means you get to be in the opening sequence of the episodes. Besides the main ones there has always been those recurring-main characters like Zelenka, Lorne and Grodin before the poor guy was killed of. Although I prefer Lorne as main over Teyla though :).

LizzieAnne
May 18th, 2008, 10:26 AM
Everything is in place for Lorne to be written in more. He already has his own team, his own men and is there ready when Sheppard is out of action or unvailable in the story. Often though, for whatever reason, the PTB see fit to use other unknown marines/characters to fill the role when the logical option would be for the second in command to step in. (I fear it is probably about practical stuff like money and costs that come into it quite a bit)

I'd wanted to say something like that ;)

I'm not sure if it would be a good idea making Lorne part of SGA1. On the one hand, we could finally see more Sheppard-Lorne interaction (at least, more than "Major, boys." - "Colonel." - "Way to be alive." - "Thank you, sir. So... have to come to rescue us?" like in "Coup d'Etat", although... it was kinda funny ;)), on the other hand... wouldn't it be a bit dumb to put the CO of Atlantis and his 2IC on one team? In that case, both of them would be in danger at the same time, and that wouldn't make any sense, would it? I mean, the point of having a 2IC is having a kind of back-up in case the CO is incapacitated, right?

Ah, I seem to be unable to express myself correctly today :p

May 18th, 2008, 06:12 PM
I would be cool with that, although it would definitely have to be temporary. Much as I love Lorne, I cannot see him as a member of the main team.

What about the Guys to girl ratio as seen in SG-1. the ratio was 3:1 same thing with SGA when it started. SO what if they replaced Teyla with Keller instead?

Explosion indeed. I may not be a fan of Keller's, but I wouldn't wish the type of negativity such a move would likely generate on any character. She's already enough of a polarizing figure, there's no need to give fans additional reasons to want her gone.

As for Lorne, IMO, he has been within TPTB's crosshairs since Season 2 and I can almost feel them chomping at the bit to kill him off as a ratings stunt. If they make him a main character or put him on Sheppard's team, then I'll see this as an indication that his days are numbered. Or, they will butcher his character so badly that I'll wish they would kill him to preserve whatever dignity the character had left.

As much as I would like to see more of Lorne, more screen time for the character would probably not be a good thing in the long run.

I can't see Lorne as a member Shep's main team. I see him more as the leader of the number two Atlantis Reconnaissance team. It would just seem kind of redundant having him on Shep's team.

...but I would like to see more of him in a recurring status (it's safer that way :P )

I don't know that it's necessary to keep a continual list. Suffice to say everyone in the Lorne thunk thread will be upset as will various other people floating around the board. TPTB, though, won't give a flying fig one way or the other and I imagine they'll have a fair number of supporters, too.

Lorne replacing Teyla on Shep's team is a dumb idea. It'd be a step down for him considering that he already has his own team and if Rachel were to leave I think the replacing actor/character would be female and given the whole Carson's Angels plot coming up next season it's a fair bet that would be a good place to start looking for new chests faces.

Lorne having a more active role on the show and maybe even getting bumped up to regular would be a dangerous idea, IMO, because I think being on the fringes is better (and safer) than being in TPTB's crosshairs. A well-liked character doesn't HAVE to be made into a regular and quite often it's his (or her) part-time status that adds to the likability. I wouldn't want to overdose on Lorne and wind up hating him. And yes, it IS possible to get too much of a favorite character because I've already had it happen with McKay. Loved him on SG-1, loved him for the first year or so on Atlantis, and now I cringe whenever he's onscreen. Which is a lot. :rolleyes:

Be careful what you wish for.

If Teyla is Off during these times should a new member be assigned to replace her?

i could live withy teyla being killed off or becoming a recurring character...

She has no immediate reason to be on the team, one of her functions is public relations like "Oh hi im teyla im anthosian, and these guys are cool and u can trust them" but since season 2 they've been more or less "I'm so and so from the atlantis expedition(sometimes they'd hide it) whats up? Oh is that a fact?" then they say "oh we'll kill you" "save yourself" or "oh we'll save the day" I mean when we need her, 90% of the time they have time to go get Teyla and come back. GOD I wish she would talk in her normal voice though.

Okay, honestly and seriously now: I agree with those stating that it wouldn't do the character any good if they decided to make him a member of the main cast (which will, IMHO, not happen anyway). He's exactly this: The reliable guy in the background who just does his job and occasionally comes to mob up the milk the main cast members have spilled while being off to God knows where playing hero. Kavan Smith summed up his character, and why at least a part of the audience likes him, pretty well in his last GW-interview, and this would be destroyed if they'd make him a member of the main cast. No, I like my Lorne the way he is ;)

From my obviously very different perspective, I feel season four was our best season yet.

you were talking about s5, not s4 ;) AFAIK TBTB have never said that s5 will be the best season ever

Yes, Captain Obvious, I WAS talking about S5. What's your point? I thought- and still think- that "This is [going to be] the best season ever!" is what TPTB- or, for the anal-retentives in the audience, JOE MALLOZZI- says EVERY season. No, as I already said in my previous post, I can't back it up with valid quotes, but it doesn't change my opinion that they say it ever year back to and including SG-1. It's the kind of jingoistic hype producers of shows say all the time. It's probably in the Standard Hollywood Contract: "You will proclaim the current/upcoming season of your show to be the 'best season ever' in order to encourage fans to watch." LOL!

Of course, I'm not one to act as if I'm in some position of authority to know whether or not it has literally been said every season and quite frankly I don't give a damn if it has or not because the vibe is still there, in my opinion, but if masses of fans have a huge bee up their nose about it then maybe I'll endeavor to say "It seems as if the producers say it every year" just to avoid any future OT melodrama, particularly in a thread that is SUPPOSED to be about that hottie, Major Lorne, and his potential place in the upcoming best-or-otherwise season of the show. :P

And then again, maybe I'll say it anyway and simply ignore future attempts to derail the convo from something fun and yummy. ;)

Lorne being a bigger part of S5 would mean I'd probably have to watch more Atlantis. And let me state for the record that I am in no way trying to claim as fact that he WILL be a bigger part of the upcoming season, and, in fact, I can't even guarantee that IF said hypothetical situation were to be true that I would, in fact, actually watch more of Atlantis. But there's a higher percent chance of me watching a Lorne ep than of me watching a Lorneless one. And again, that's solely MY opinion and I am in no way trying to speak for any other individuals or groups on the matter of the theoretical presence of Lorne to any theoretical increase in the ep-watching ratio. So there. :P

I love Lorne. :)
