    All I can say....is WOW what a great episode!

    ok maybe a bit more

    The episode started off with a very eerie feeling, with Helen waking up on the floor and the way they filmed it in black & white. The journey we took with Helen, you could really feel her terror. The monsters were more than your average zombies with the cool effect of their tongues

    What was the most shocking was Helen finding out she was patient zero, and the entity was a very cool mysterious effect, following Helen, showing her what needed to be seen.

    Oh and the scariest thing about the episode was....

    Spoiler:
    Will's hair

    I think in this case the reason Will and Kate got together was because they were fighting side by side through all the devastation and most of their friends were probably dead, so they would naturally turn to each other.

    That was a very interesting aspect, Helen was so devastated by Ashley's death that she went searching for something to, in a way, end her own life.

    It does make it seem like this ep was suppose to come before Hero, though I guess they didn't want 4 dark/intense episodes in a row.

    Very good ep, though I figured it was all a dream/hallucination pretty early on.

    Very good episode! I really enjoyed it! I never considered her to be patient zero... that was great! Also the smoke/spirit element was cool, because of what it revealed to be in the end. I didn't pay much attention to it at first

    Also I liked that Ashley's death was the reason why Helen went searching for the artifact. And that search would ultimately cause the human race to become extent in her quest to end her longevity. The destruction of the Sanctuary looked great with the CGI -they did a good job! The transformation of Will in the apocalyptic world was very believable. He was making hard decisions he would not have otherwise made thanks to a war torn world he lived in. And awww little two year old Magnus running around. Will and Kate were the only ones left after Helen died three years ago and John two weeks after her. The reaction Helen had when she returned to the Sanctuary was right on the mark. Great episode.

    Sam Re: Pavor Nocturnus (205)

    Wow what an amazing, phenomenal episode.

    I thought it was really nice of Helen fighting to save that little girl, even when it looked hopeless. But I loved the Helen fighting scenes, the way she kicked butt was wicked. The zombies I thought were cool, they reminded my of the aliens for... Aliens with the tongue/mouth.

    I thought Robin was also great, you could tell this is what a person would be after years of living in hell on Earth, and I think he hit right on the nose . It was quite a twist to learn that Will and Kate had a kid, and that he named him Magnus . It was interesting hearing what happened to Henry, John, Kate and the big guy, at least they fought to the end. But what was really shocking was learning that Helen was patient zero . But when all was said and done, everything was back to normal, and so where Helen and Will.

    Oh and OMG OMG OMG OMJG! I couldn't believe what happened to Helen when those guys took her away and hosed her down like that I had so many things going through me, I was really shocked to see that happening to her, I was a little scared because I didn't know what they were going to do.

    I have to say Amanda was SUPER brave doing that scene, that goes beyond anything I've ever seen her do. I know she's always been nervous to do those things, but that was really brave, and I'm very proud of her. That was the first time I've seen that happen to Helen, things like that never even happened to Sam. Helen was so disrespected it was hard to watch, I really can't say enough, she was just so amazing and so believable in that one scene, I actually had real for for what could have happened to her. Bravo Amanda, that was one hell of a performance.

    I got a real Resident Evil vibe from this eppy and it was awesome!! i wasn't able to catch all of it, but I saw most and it rocked. Crazy angry Will was like... WHOA.... and I feel a little bad that Kate died. Poor news about Big Guy, and Noble about what happened to Druitt.


    All in all this eppy was really good. First thing I thought when I saw it was that Magnus was having a psychedelic trippy dream or something. Again this was very good and very dark. i loved it!!

    Loved the ep.

    I was expecting something more about Helen's psyche instead of what we got with the warning from the abnormal, but WOW!

    Very affecting. That hosing down was scary.

    Amazing Episode!!!

    Totally a fav epi now

    I have to re-watch it so I can give my “fair” opinion I was working and got 15 min. into the episode; but for what I saw it was awesome.

    Agree this episode should have come up as episode #4 but I also agree, that would have make 4 very sad and dark episodes; not that I wouldn’t watch

    Will becoming the dark and hard persona he became was hard to see but understandable after all he went through and he kept firing till the end and the one quality I love about him was his loyalty and thrust in Helen even though he treated her the way he did in the beginning.

    Will and Kate surprise, also agree with the reasoning of how they got together; out of desperation and grief the baby’s name totally awesome.
    Alien entity protecting the tomb and the elixir really cool and the way it show Helen what her actions would bring were fantastic.

    The last scene I thought Helen was about to hug Will, very touchy scene and at the same time emotional.

    Ok I’m off for now.

    No, no, no, Mandy what really scared me was
    Spoiler:
    that scene when they hosed down Helen. Such a sad and disrespectful moment for Helen.

    Amanda should get an award for this episode.

    Excellent episode!! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! Just great - and the scene where Helen got hosed down - daaaaaaamn. THAT was intense! Really good stuff.

    But...
    Spoiler:
    Did Will have...
    Spoiler:
    a MULLET??!


    Loved it. This is what I want sci fi to be all about! Adventure, suspense, scary stuff! I was a bit disappointed with Peyton Place...erm...I mean, Universe, tonight. The relationship stuff is starting to drown out the sci fi stuff.

    I think this was the most powerful episode yet! I mean Helen was looking for a way to kill herself b/c of Ashley of death... If that doesn't say powerful, well then we could always just add a few zombies...

    Anyone else really hate the noise the zombies things made? Evertime I hear the sound I was just wishing it would stop...

    Okay, biggest shocker in this episode Will and Kate... Seriously! I just can't see those two together!

    P.S. Scariest thing I saw in this episode was Will hair....
    There are my dogs!

    Thumbs up Re: Pavor Nocturnus (205)

    I can’t believe this; I watched it again and I’m bawling my eyes out, that last scene still gets me; when Helen acknowledged she is the one that cause the end of humanity.

    When she is in her office you can perceive Helen’s sadness and pain, maybe she is thinking of Ashley; since that’s why this all stared, maybe she is thinking of all the thinks she lost and gain in just days; who knows but that scene is just awesome.

    When Helen goes to where her abnormals where you can feel the pain she feels watching the destruction.

    I totally agree, that hosing down scene is out of this world Amada did a terrific job and I admired her more for that, the degradation and the insult to her persona only helps you to feel upset and anger for her.

    I like the split scenes; I know some of you don’t like them, but they work for me and the sequences they show.

    Love that coat!...so her

    Some quotes:

    Helen: “What the hell are you doing here?”
    Will: “Bleeding”
    ---
    Will: “Scare you?”
    Jessica: “Only when I see your face”
    ---
    Will: “Magnus if she turns they’ll come!”
    Helen: “Then; I suggest you leave” he leaves and then returns Hey Will!!
    --
    Will: “You are piss”

    Good episode... somewhat strange, somewhat "I am Legend" but better.

    So the whole time, my SG1 trained brain is debating, "Different dimension or teleported into the future?" I couldn't get a grasp on how much time had passed, so that kept me guessing, which is good.

    It was interesting for me that what Helen experienced in the future turned out to be caused by her desire to end her life. I always felt that in the webisodes, ending her life/"curing" her immortality, was a constant desire for Helen because she was afraid to outlive Ashley (although that was never explicitly stated). I was wondering what she was going to do now that she had outlived her before the show started, and then there it was.

    The parts in the future were interesting. Kate and Will was an interesting concept- he didn't say so much that they were married, just that they had a kid. Young Magnus was likely born out of the simple need of his parents to be together because they were familiar to each other after having lost so many friends. I'm not sure if an actual relationship would develop between them in a the non-crisis timeline.

    So overall, I liked it. I think it should have been episode 4, though.
