Hot off of the JM blog presses!


Meanwhile, the order of season five’s the first three episodes has been locked. It’ll go Search and Rescue, The Seed, and Broken Ties.

So, all we know is that it's the 2nd episode of Season 5. Still, it's something.

Discuss!

Well that could mean alot of things. Seed of destruction? If so who's? Or it could deal with Teyla's child.

I'm thinking that we'll finally have an episode that deals with agriculture and general food production for Atlantis.

And since I don't see a thread for "Broken Ties"...God, I hope they don't intend on breaking contact with Earth again...I mean, maybe for an episode or two...Or maybe Carter breaks up with O'Neill(we all know that they're together, right?;))...

It probably is about Teyla's "seed", that is, her child. Broken Ties is probably about Weir, and Search and Rescue is the follow up to The Last Man.

Well...

It's the 3rd episode. Every Ronon episode since his intro has been the 3rd one of the season.

JM is writing it, and just today he said on his blog that he wrote a scene that might decide the fate of Ronon's dreads.

JM has also mentioned that Mark Dacascos is returning. He played the Satedan in Reunion that escaped at the end.

Although, I think we should take this to the Broken Ties episode thread...

Production Designer James Robbins swung by the offices to show us some of the concept art for the first three episodes [...] Paul commented on The Seed (The wraith walls are a light brown but we light them purple. All the same, he thought the shading was too light.)

I tend to agree.

Given that is has been spoiled that she apparently gives birth in the premiere, I could this ep being about the baby and a follow up explaining some things in that regard. I have always thought that Michael somehow, someway had some hand in this pregnancy whether directly or indirectly....so I definately lean towards your speculation

I think you are right but JM spoiled us saying that Broken Ties will have some developments for Teyla as well....whether that ep has anything to do with her baby remains to be seen but with a title like "The Seed" how could we not think this ep has something to do with the little bambino?;) Although on the same note, all the episode titles tend to be soo damn deceiving anyway....so we could all be waaayyy off!!

I believe they meant Todd as in the Wraith dude but guess what we won't be seeing too much of him either he is also on Sanctuary with Amanda he plays John Druitt/ Jack the Ripper/ Helen's fiancee. I think they were trying for funny but unless the farm grew humans wouldn't do Todd much good.;)

Jewel and hubby Matt swung by the production offices today. Jewel was in for a fitting while Matt was on the lot shooting another show. We talked horror movies, Watchmen, and, of course, what we have in store for Keller in season 5. Like Rachel, she was excited about some of the planned developments - but understandably a anxious about episode #2, The Seed, especially since I told her she’d have to get in for 4:00 a.m. every morning so that prosthetics could get an early jump on the body cast process which would take about 3-4 hours. “The trick is not to breathe too much or let the latex touch your skin,”I advised, “as it’s not only toxic but highly corrosive. Anyway, relax and have fun with it.” She wasn’t sure whether I was kidding or not.

While Marty G. is on the set of his episode (Search and Rescue), and Paul [Mullie] is prepping his episode (The Seed), and I’m writing my script (Whispers), Carl is doing another rewrite of his script (Ghost in the Machine), and Alan is mulling over a possible story to slip into the #9 slot as the script originally envisioned for that spot ran into a “creative snafu” that a) moved it into the back half and b) may necessitate a change in perspective. Brad is, of course, penning #6 (can‘t wait to see the grotto), Carl is going to jump on #8 (interesting developments in this one that had Priscilla and the gang at MGM very excited), and Marty G. will do the honors for the mid-season two-parter (Welcome back to Atlantis, Dr. Jackson).

You're shooting season 5 now.

We're at episode 2 of season 5 [“The Seed”]. We're making Jewel's life misery right now, which is a nice change for me. I'm noticing a theme to season 5, which is a lot of people strapped to beds. So there's a little teaser of season 5. Season 5: A Season in Bed.

I'm not sure that will bring people in in droves, people being strapped to beds.

David goes on to talk about the change in command stucture -- "All I can say is, we're going to be having a lot of fun with Woolsey. There's definitely going to be some interesting little fights for power there."

Judging from the new spoilery pictures of ep 501 (http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2008/03/13/march-13-2008-hazzencockles-hard-times-and-the-trouble-with-flares/) at JM's blog, it seems like Shep is bed-bound through ep 502. We know Carter is leaving (one way or other), so this power vacuum sets the perfect stage for Woolsey.

according to PG15 this line from the spoiler poem refers to The Seed

The city assailed by mutations infective.
I guess this ep either focuses on Teyla and the baby or it's a filler. however remember Joe said Teyla will have a lot to do in the first two eps ;)

ok so what if this child somehow infects people? it would explain JS's prosthetics. also maybe Michael needs the baby to make a new and even better (worse) race of hybrids. Teyla's baby would literally be The Seed

Prep continues on Ghost in the Machine. Ken Girotti, who will be directing GitM, also finishes up his director’s cut of Broken Ties, which means I‘ll be heading over to editing later in the week. Carl put out a first draft of Tracker late Wednesday so we should have notes for him first thing Tuesday morning. Or maybe third thing Wednesday afternoon. Paul is in editing, working on The Seed. Marty G. continues work on the still-unnamed mis-season two-parter, while Alan continues work on the Teyla-centric The Queen. The second round of network and studio notes should be coming my way on Whispers. And I’ll continue my leisurely meditations on episode 16.

Stargate Solutions has some spoilers for The Seed in their new article about Carson's return in Season 5. There are also spoilers for Whispers in the article, and Paul McGillion talks about returning to the set to shoot Kindred II.

http://stargate-sg1-solutions.com/blog/?p=1234


Season Five will see McGillion reprising his role for at least five episodes. The first episode, “The Seed”, is scheduled to be the second episode in the new season.

“It was wonderful to be back onset again with all of my cast mates. I guess you can call this the episode where they take Beckett out of the deep freeze! Atlantis is in peril and my character is the one who needs to take action and hopefully figure a way out of this dilemma before it’s too late and we lose some of our close friends!

To get back to topic though -

I think it's interesting that Paul says that he will be thawed out to save the day. With Jewel's comment about prosthetics, I'm thinking she probably must be one of the first to come down with whatever this is they're dealing with.

It's interesting that we've heard nothing about Teyla's baby yet though. Maybe something happens to him in this episode - maybe he dies from whatever this is? JM did say that this episode would have some major developments for Teyla's character. I'm wondering if this all ties into the Hoffin virus. I can't figure out why that would require prosthetics though, but maybe it mutates somehow?

If it is the intention of TPTB to make Season 5 darker and more of a challenge for all the characters, then eliminating Teyla's child would be a good way to do it. While the loss of Carson and Elizabeth were hard on the characters, this would be particularly tough. Teyla would have to work through her grief, hopefully with the help of her team mates and friends. It could provide for some incredible opportunities for new relationships (SHIPPERS REJOICE) as well as new conflicts (WHUMPERS SQUEEEEEE).

I am not an advocate of this approach, but if TPTB opt to use it, they have to do it very carefully.

What I meant is, I read somewhere that in "Aurora" they said something about having found a weakness in the Wraith technology? (I myself haven't seen the ep in a while so I don't know any more.) Well, we know that a lot of the material of a Wraith Hive Ship is organic in nature, it self heals and stuff, so if you were to attack it with something that kills organisms (pesticides), or something that stops rapid cell growth (chemo), what would you get? They've been in the galaxy for so long now, but they aren't really looking for much stuff to get rid of their enemies, right? They have biologists to study plant life, while they should think of ways to attack the biology of the ships instead. (Not that I want the Wraith to fall, of course :))

And about that bomb device? Think it would be possible to somewhere other than Atlantis create a room that would protect you from the rays, so you can capture some Wraith clones, knock them out, take them to that room, activate it for a bit, then shut it down, so the clones are infected, and then put them on a planet near a Hive ship, so they'll wake up and be picked up, and a bit later, BOOM!?

Am I the only one who thinks like that? It's not cos their personnel died, that it can't be used...

Hmm... another contagion outbreak in Atlantis... I think Teyla's baby has something to do with it - maybe during Micheal's experiments he injected it with some disease that got released and turned some people into Wraithish people. While the city slowly goes all sick, Shep revives Carson to take him to the Infirmary to get healed (Explained earlier) when he learns of the disease, and the two go along saving the city while Carson slowly dies (adds a certain "HURRY UP" element I guess).

Yeah I remember that... I wouldn't be surprised if the weakness in Wraith technology that was mentioned in 'Aurora' was a susceptibility to some chemical or bio-weapon, the Ancients must have had an idea about what Wraith hives were made of (I would think they destroyed enough hives before the trun in the war).

Can you imagine spreading bug spray all over a Hive, and the darn thing just dissolve around the Wraith that are inside? :eek:

Their poor hearts! :P


:lol: If I didn't know better I would think you want to see the downfall of the Wraith :P

Downfall, no, not really, but, you know... Now they're more blowing up Hives when they accidentally stumble over them. They don't actively seek them out (okay, which is good, since Atlantis is meant to be destroyed), but still...

In meanwhile, they continue to cull. It's like having the Ori hanging around in the galaxy, have them destroy worlds cos they don't want to worship them, and do absolutely nothing about it.

But no, I don't want them all dead. :D


:confused: :P

It's not cos Carson went BOOM, that the device is a bad invention. They should just use a few brain cells and figure out that the room they used it in is bad... Or those scientists were stupid. :D

If they figure out how to control the environment, make sure it only opens up long enough to infect drones, then auto shuts down again, and have some marines drop the bodies back off at a Wraith planet... Of course they had to first check if it works on Wraith (drones or faced ones) first, and it would take a lot of resources to capture the Wraiths necessary, and they'd have to do things as big as possible, since at some point they should just stop picking up clones that go boom... And they needed to calculate how many per Hive need to be infected before it gets destroyed completely, and so on... :o

I haven't thought about this much, really, the plan just formed so nicely and quickly... :D


LoL :P

I'm still sleepy. Maybe I should stop chatting earlier... :D


I thought that Wraith lab in Spoils of War was the weakness that the Aurora found. I mean it is the secret to their superior numbers

Hmm. Could be, but is it a weakness? It's more like a strength. Can the cloning facility be turned against them? And it doesn't take too much time to clone a few hundred thousand drones, snatch them up, and bring them out to put on some ships, or have them work on building new ships, etc...


It could be, nothing conclusive was said about the Wraith weakness the crew of the Aurora found... maybe we'll find out in S5 :)

Sadly, I think that's might be a large 'maybe'... :)

You seem to be missing some of my point. Blowing up the cloning facility doesn't mean the thing is a 'weakness', as it's just gone and they have no further damage from it... Just the loss of the facility, nothing more.

They don't NEED the facility to make drones, that was the whole point. They make clones of the drones...

Update:


Cazz writes: “I just read on Gateworld that the IOA removes Carter because she’s military. This doesn’t make any sense. Why would she have gotten the job in the first place if the IOA doesn’t want the military leading the expedition. Rob Picardo says he doesn’t know why Woolsey is even on Atlantis yet either. Is that right? You guys are filming episode eight and haven’t even explained the change in command?”

Answer: You’re misunderstanding what was said in the interview. “At this point in the season the actor says Woolsey’s reason for taking the job has yet to be established.” This is true in that we have yet to reveal Woolsey’s personal reasons for accepting the command position. On the other hand, the reasoning behind the IOA’s decision to replace Carter is discussed in episode 2, The Seed.

Capturing live drones wouldn't even be necessary. It has been established the Lanteans had personal cloaks and personal shields, so all they have to do is send an invisible guy to infiltrate a hive and find a nice hidden place to activate the device (though preferably near a walkway, and obviously the Lantean in question would be wearing the shield by this point). Then the Lantean in question leaves long before the hive goes up, and hopefully the Wraith would be none the wiser as to how it happened.

I assume that the episode is in post-production at this point, so whatever is going to happen has indeed happened. The silence on the episode is encouraging and is hopefully an indication that it is something worth keeping secret. Anyone remember a certain line from a certain movie that caught everyone, including the actors in the movie off guard?

LUKE, I AM YOUR FATHER!

I hope they continue to keep this one under wraps. It helps to build the suspence.

It doesn't have to be an 'evil' baby, but we're already pretty sure it's a unique one, due to Teyla's and Kanaan's DNA. Plus then there's the 'shot' that might have just been vitamins.

GW: Obviously it changed, your pregnancy and having a child, changed your perception of the world around you, what about Teyla? What's this going to do to Teyla?

RL: Oh gosh, well in the beginning part of the season certainly she's struggling with what every mother struggles with, every working mother struggles with. She has to make a decision as to whether or not she wants to be a part of this perilous journey and return to being a part of this team that essentially puts themselves, their lives, on the line every time they step through the gate or taking care of this gorgeous being that she was so desperate to keep.

So that's the new challenge for her and that's something that she struggles with in the first little part but everybody will be happy to know that she decides to rejoin the team.

GW: I take it that Michael wanting the child, that thread is resolved at some point here?

RL: Oh no! It's not resolved. [Laughter] Oh no, he's still out there. He's still out there and he still has his diabolical plans to rule the universe. So no, it hasn't been resolved. We're safely back where we need to be but …

GW: Safe for now.

RL: Exactly. Exactly. Yeah.

It's not like the few remaining Athosians can get another planet and then Teyla dumps the baby there.

Or maybe the Athosians go to Earth too, and get a new planet from there on, in a different Galaxy. Baby goes along?

And the main land of New Lantea has a poisonous snake on it, so not good either.

Interestingly enough, despite much speculation about this episode which apparently features Carson and Keller, Teyla apparently does not play a major role in this episode. At least that is the impression I get from JM's latest post on his blog. A question regarding how involved Teyla will be in Season 5 netted a response that mentioned several episodes but "The Seed" was conspicuously absent.

Fascinating. :cool: This seems to fly in the face of much of the speculation on this thread that seemed to tie Teyla or her child to the plot.

Of course, this could just be a red herring, or maybe a typo. Maybe JM is just trying to heighten the mystery surrounding the episode. Maybe I'm reading too much into it. Maybe I have too much free time on my hands. Maybe I should just shut up now.........;)

Killdeer
April 28th, 2008, 08:05 PM
It does. Well, what JM said earlier in the year was that two of the first three episodes would feature some major developments for the character. Since Broken Ties is Ronon's episode, my thinking was that this episode would focus more on Teyla. But....in light of what he said tonight, maybe not. Maybe Broken Ties is the other episode that has major developments for Teyla, not this one.

.: Fine, we'll agree to disagree, I guess it's just a personal preference. The J/T pairing is way overly cliche to me and IMHO they have no chemistry. I like John/Elizabeth and Carson/Teyla. :)

.: Ooops ... derailed again :o

The only ship I like is Jack/Sam and Daniel/Vala. But personally I like the John/Teyla romance idea better.

The John / Elizabeth, Rodney / Jennifer and the Ronon / Teyla sound better. ;)

as long as it's done properly, i don't usually care...

bit of a minor S/Jer... and i liked the snippet of McKeller in TLM....

But in the end it's just a show.

Back on topic- I can't wait for thsi episode, the whole point of all the other epi's form the 1st half having their descriptions revealed but this one really stokes my interest in this.

From the recent Paul McGillion interview:


You are also on "The Seed", what can you tell us about this episode ? The second episode of the season five.

"The Seed" is the second episode of season five yes, that's the return of Beckett.

So what can you tell us?

Oh I can't tell you what because of the spoilers, but you know let's spread this way they bring Beckett back and I'll be around for at least five episodes this season. It's a great episode where Beckett comes back and helps up the team, there is much peril and he, you know, helps to save one of the a main members of the team who is in a state of crisis, Beckett is instrumental, and saving her.

Oh, yes. So there is a new commander on Atlantis, Woolsey, how Carson is reacting to this new leadership?

In "The Seed" Woolsey and Beckett have a lot of scenes together and that's a very interesting episode for that relationship to flourish.

So in "The Seed" Carson is removed from his stasis?

Yes, and he has many scenes with Robert Picardo's character Woolsey in "The Seed"

And what about with the other characters?

All of them.

All?

All of them, a lot to do, Carson has a lot to do, heavy episode for Carson very many scenes and in "Whispers" the second episode we're shooting right now, many Beckett scenes, big episode for Beckett.

The translation's a little wonky, but I don't think it's hard to understand it.

Who do y'all think this is referring to? Teyla? Or Keller? I'm thinking Keller because of all the talk about prosthetics.

From a "recent" MGM news article:


He’s always been quite abrasive in the past. Will this provide an opportunity for conflict with the existing personnel?

Yes, definitely, right off the bat. In episode two, ‘The Seed,’ you’ll see that. The thing about Woolsey is that he’s always been a representative of the IOA, and the IOA have had their agenda. In some ways he’s been the rep for that particular agenda. But on the other hand, we’ve humanized him, to the point where I hope we like the guy and understand him and sympathize with his position and his willingness to at times realize that what the by-the-book situation calls for may not be the right decision.

Hello, all

Um, I've probably overdone the coffee today, to come up with a theory like this, but - well, I've been watching The Kindred again, and from that, I can't help but wonder if 'the seed' is Michael's control over Carson? Or rather the influence he has over Carson's mind? After all, he stopped Carson killing him to rescue Teyla, and said he can control all of his creations. So with Michael still out there, and his ability to control Carson's actions - well, it would be a real advantage if he decides to invade Atlantis!

Like I say, a bit weird and wacky, but - hey, we all know this is sci-fi! You name it, and it can happen!

Or, like I say, it's the coffee

that's a very interesting theory, I think FoXz had a similar idea. even though Michael won't appear in this ep Carson may still find out about something

:indeed:

I don't think so. we only know this

"[Jewel ('Jennifer Keller') was] understandably anxious about episode #2, 'The Seed,' especially since I told her she'd have to get in for 4:00 a.m. every morning so that prosthetics could get an early jump on the body cast process which would take about 3 to 4 hours."
(Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a message at his blog)

"We're at episode two of Season Five ['The Seed']. We're making Jewel's life misery right now, which is a nice change for me. I'm noticing a theme to Season Five, which is a lot of people strapped to beds. So there's a little teaser of Season Five. Season Five: A Season in Bed."

I like that idea. :D I had a similar one, in that I thought that s seed of doubt maybe planted in one of them. Or something that starts off as inocuous grows into something a bit deadly. Hmmmm need to ponder on this some more.

Maybe Michael will send a virus to Atlanis or Keller will be fed a little, so she won't be able to make her job, so they will need Carson to save the expedition. :)
