View Full Version : Rodney Should Have died.

Atlantis is supposed to be the darker version, this story of finding the cure to a mystery illness has been done about six other times at least. I love Rodney, but this should have happened as it would have cast the show in a post Rodney angle and how they took him for granted even if he was whiney sometimes... if only sci fi had've announced the cancellation sooner this might have been an option.

Oh and David Hewlett could have stayed on as a ghost... not out of phase, not ascended (that we know of, one of those planes in the middle anubis was talking about) but a real ghost who hangs around and comments on whats happening without anyone being aware of his presence.

I would like to see the Atlantis team think McKay is dead as their reactions would be quite interesting but i wouldnt like to see the writers actually kill him (unless they intended to bring him back afew episodes later).

Rodney should have been left brain damaged. tptb could have taken the opportunity to make it so Rodney never fully recovers and can't recall a lot of science stuff. (of course then they would have to use zelenka more:))

It would have been interesting seeing rodney adjust to just being a "normal" person with an average IQ.

He would lose his sense of need, his arrogance and his sense of identity.

Make him re-think his position and skill. Make him more needy of others opinions.

oh, wait...that would require a lot more writing for Rodney. *shivers* never mind.

Dumb idea. Without McKay's intelligence he has no business being on the Atlantis expedition as he doesnt have any other useful skills.

well what do you expect from an average IQ person. Too bad sga is stargate rodney instead of a TEAM show.

btw...your brain cells do not come back after being damaged...so Rodney should have remained a mentally handicapped man and sent to a home in all retrospects.

I agree that if they were going to kill off McKay, then this would have been the episode to do it in. It was all set up so perfectly.

If the decision had been left to his "doctor", he would have died.

At the very least: he should have the need for massive therapy sessions to regain some motor skills. SOME not all...because, as has been pointed out, damaged or dead brain cells do not regrow - but there are cases where other portions of the brain compensate for the losses. It would really depend on how pervasive the organism was - and what the doctor did to try to get rid of it.

Bottom line: he wouldn't have been the same. And yes, logically, he should have died.

Well, you're right... and wrong. Your brain (as an organ) does not have the ability to regenerate. What it *does* have, however, is the ability to rewire itself and create new neural pathways around the damaged areas. That's why doctors can never predict with any degree of accuracy exactly how long, or to what an extent any person's brain injury will affect them *individually*.

I should know, I've suffered brain injury and I'm back. Pretty much whole and functioning.

His Braincells were dormant. Not damaged. But this isn't the biggest logical issue in the show. If you really want to harp on logic all of a sudden how about the fact that everyone in another galaxy speaks perfect English.

Is there a secret sect of Weir-McKay shipper that I don't know about?

(I thought the only ships were Weir-Shepard related?)

On a completely unrelated note, I was watching SG1 today and saw that replicator chick (the second one that went through after Fran)... She got killed in that episode too... TPTB not only reuse the same actors, but they are killed again and again... Man it's tough to be an SG extra.

In other words, his 'IQ' would return, but his memories would remain lost forever. But that doesn't matter much, as in real life, Rodney would probably die from the wound being infected infection (as Keller pointed out)

I cringed when I saw that 'field' surgery. I hope they at least sterilized the drill bit! At least they wore gloves, but there was no sterile field at all. At the very least, the doc should have set up some kind of surgical drapes, etc. I mean, I understand dramatic license, but please...

Another nice thing:

The drills used in drilling machines are made from a steel designated '19552' (in the Czech Republic). Medical drills are made from steel X50CrMoV15 (that might be an international designation). According to the difference in physical properties of the drills and the machines themselves, Rodney's skull should've been crushed to pieces during the 'operation'

I suppose US drills are different then? ;)

Zamboni

Tell that to Beckett, Weir and Ford.Beckett isn't dead, he's cloned. Weir isn't dead, she's cosmetically changed to a younger, (relatively) better looking version. Lastly, we don't know if Ford is dead or not. For all we know, Ford might have escaped the explosion, crash landed on a near by planet and lost all his memory and was taken in by the local residences.

In fact, I think Ford might come back eventually, saving John by accident...

Or maybe he gets mixed up with Michael and end up becoming a super-super soldier... Or something.

Or maybe he finds Weir in space and decides to rescue her and they fall in love...

Bite your tongue. That Most Hated of Atlantis Ships must never be mentioned at all. Ever. It's the second most nausiating ships in SG-dom, right after Sam'n'Sir.

McKay-Weir is one of the earliest and most prolific pairings in all of Atlantis. It (like all other ships) was eventually overtaken and subsumed by the monolithic titan that is McShep slash fiction.

jelgate
August 27th, 2008, 07:43 PM
Don't you think those two years of with Mike will change clone Beckett into a different person. I will admit genetically that he is close to the original and I recall the clone has to take a serum every so often. Keller was just able to find out the formula to prevent genetic breakdown

It's not like Beckett would remain 100% the same if he stayed with the Atlantis crew... In fact he DIED when he stayed on Atlantis.

Beckett is still the same doctor, despite being a clone...

Yeah, I don't think I'll forget that for a while; they used a power drill on a man's skull....and expected it to help him! And even if he somehow survived the Bob Villa solution without having his brain accidentally scrambled into an omelet, infection would have gotten him for sure. You don't just drill a hole in a man's head when your only tool's a power drill and your operating room's a cave with a strange device emitting unknown radiation! I remember Shepard whipping out the power drill and thinking, "Oh your not..."

Actually, I'd love to see it. It would force TPTB to pay a little attention to all the other characters for once.
WOW do you think they could stand it? ;)


Oh dear... what can of worms have I opened up this time...?

Is there a secret sect of Weir-McKay shipper that I don't know about?

(I thought the only ships were Weir-Shepard related?)

On a completely unrelated note, I was watching SG1 today and saw that replicator chick (the second one that went through after Fran)... She got killed in that episode too... TPTB not only reuse the same actors, but they are killed again and again... Man it's tough to be an SG extra.
if you watch carefully they reuse a lot of extras... it';s vancouver, not as big as LA! :P


Don't you think those two years of with Mike will change clone Beckett into a different person. I will admit genetically that he is close to the original and I recall the clone has to take a serum every so often. Keller was just able to find out the formula to prevent genetic breakdown
shhhhhhh don't give Jennifer credit for anything! ;) you know better!


Meh, he probably would have ascended or something, TPTB will probably explain away that his near-ascension experience last time *somehow* helped.

Then we get an episode where he tries to help Atlantis with something, but then end up naked unconscious in say, oh I don't know, Sam's quarters.

:S:S ok mckay naked is just disgusting! :S *runs for the barf-bucket*

Err... Okay.

Hopefully Dr. Keller won't have a similar reaction...

That would actually be hilarious. A whole season of McKeller ending with it all being ruined by Keller vomiting upon seeing the real McKay. :D

Therefore, if McKay had died in the episode "The Shrine", none of this will happen and we would just get a lame "to be continued" season ending.

Hooray for rampaging McKay!!! W00t!!!
(also, this topic is now back on track... sort of)

What? Why? There are worse things in the two galaxies than seeing Dr. McKay in the nude...

Um ok.....liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiike.....


For example, seeing Dr. McKay in the nude while being trapped under the ice and Sam is forced to huddle around him to keep everyone alive...


... while a wraith is watching with a smirk on his face



... while everyone else watching it on Youtube

:eek: Oh good god.....Your right :S

Another nice thing:

The drills used in drilling machines are made from a steel designated '19552' (in the Czech Republic). Medical drills are made from steel X50CrMoV15 (that might be an international designation). According to the difference in physical properties of the drills and the machines themselves, Rodney's skull should've been crushed to pieces during the 'operation'

All she needed to do was create a small hole and she did it slow enough that any chips would be minor.

You are one twisted individual. *pictures a reverse situation of me hugging a naked sam*;)

You are one twisted individual. *pictures a reverse situation of me hugging a naked sam*;)Wouldn't the "reversed" situation dictate that you must be as far away from Sam as possible to stay alive? Afterall the original scenario is that they must huddle together to keep alive, therefore the reserve would require the opposite steps to achieve the same results...

So no hugging Sam for you! Muwhahahah!

If Rodney had died, there would have been a revolt even worse than when Carson did.

Not from me

Which is exactly what was impossible to do with the equipment she had unless A LOT of physical force was involved - the kind of physical force that crushes human skulls

oh for gods sake some of ur people drive me insane stop bludey complaining if he had been killed then there would have been a petition to save him and a whole big campaign ie becket but even when he survives u complain looking at the shrine topics is basically a bunch of fans dissecting the ep and complaining about any little detail slightly off base and some that ppl just want to complain for no reason i mean seriously it was a gd ep but of course they arent guna kill rodney off that would be retarted u wonder why it gets cancelled what impression do u think sci-fi would get from reading these forums that the stargate elite arent happy
stop complaining and just watch the damn show

I personally thought that drilling a hole in his head in a dark, damp cave was pretty farfetched. As lets face it, he could have got infected or died. As its a dangerous operation to say the least and the thing coming out maybe saved him at the end of the day, but it was still pretty farfetched. Anyway, I'm glad he didn't die and it was an okay episode.

I agree that if they were going to kill off McKay, then this would have been the episode to do it in. It was all set up so perfectly.

I'm glad they didn't, though.

Absolutely perfect, especially with a last supper style ending of all them round the table, with flash back of their past adventures. It would of made it the greatest episode ever.

Unfortunately SGA writers lack the bulls to kill someone off permanently

Unfortunately the rather predictable ending also nudge it down a level or two. the ending seem to off take all the emotions/ drama out of the rest of the episode. But that just me.

Whole and if the writer kill him they would not able to leave the studio or their houses with out armed escort, through I would not particularly care if they did kill him off.

I think as Atlatnis has proved from Season 1, they are willing to "kill" off characters and get rid of characters. Weir, Carson, Ford etc, but getting rid of Rodney wouldn't really have worked anyway. As at least with Ford he's just a soldier and is easily replaced with Ronan. He wasn't develop, whereas with Rodney killing him off and replacing him is not so easy. I can't imagine Zalenka as the team memeber, plus ti would mean bringing in another character to develop them in series 5 a major time for them. So it wouldn't have worked, to say they lack the balls is incorrect, they have got rid of characters before and would get rid of them if the time was right and it benefitted the show.

But ridding Atlantis of Rodney, would not have been a good thing. It would be like killing of Carter in SG1 or Daniel. It would be suicide for the show.

So true. Killing Rodney would have been suicide for the show. PLus he's too nice :D

They should make Rodney sick more often. He is so sweet when he is dying. :D
