Here is The definition of gauntlet:
1 : a glove worn with medieval armor to protect the hand
2 : any of various protective gloves used especially in industry
3 : an open challenge (as to combat) —used in phrases like throw down the gauntlet
4 : a dress glove extending above the wrist
Or
1 a : a double file of men facing each other and armed with clubs or other weapons with which to strike at an individual who is made to run between them —used with run b : a line, series, or assemblage; especially : one that poses some sort of ordeal <a gauntlet of autograph-seekers>
2 : a severe trial : ordeal <ran the gauntlet of criticism and censure>

I doubt they will make an episode about a glove!

It is bound to be based on your last point... to me, a 'Gauntlet' is a trial, dodging and diving between obstacles. It will be a race, trying to avoid some dangers yet to be known.

I'm really looking forward to this finale - big time!

Lewis writes: “Just a quick ? about Gauntlet (ep. 20). Is it already mostly written at this point or do you wait until later in the fall when you find out if SGU has been picked up for Season 3… or is it a matter of plotting out 2 different endings?”

Answer: As was the case in every other season, the script for our season finale will be written by the time a decision is made on a pick-up. In fact, I suspect that by the time we do hear, we will have already wrapped production on season 2.

I agree it goes with episode 19 = Blockade...
Hence 'Blockade' = the obstacles from the 'Gauntlet'. I'm thinking a new (or maybe current) alien species trying to prevent the Destiny from getting to where it wants to go!

Doesn't FTL kind of make a blockade kind of pointless?

PG15
July 12th, 2010, 11:28 AM
Not necessarily; we know from "Faith" that FTL can be disrupted.

Anyways, I like Scott7070's idea. Destiny runs into an obstacle in Blockade, and at the end of the episode the crew decides to run it in order to get to where they're going. Then, Gauntlet covers the, well, running of the gauntlet (of alien ships?) and will no doubt be action packed as a result. Since this is a season finale, there will most likely be a cliffhanger, and what better cliffhanger is there besides having Destiny fail at getting through the gauntlet and having the last shot be Destiny getting pummeled by enemy weapons fire as it's stuck in a sea of alien ships?

You know, I had a story idea a while ago about the crew of Destiny cracking the master code and ending up dropping out of FTL in the middle of a battle between two enemy fleets and getting caught in the crossfire. This would be the season finale and end with Destiny getting pummeled by weapons fire. The season premiere would then continue from there with the attack stranding a few groups of people across Destiny as corridors are cut off by hull breaches. The coolest thing about this is that I imagined Eli and Chloe being one of these groups, and Incursion ends up doing exactly that! Maybe Gauntlet will do the other part now. :D

If you keep the gate active or hit the ship with enough gamma radiation, FTL becomes a moot point.

Spimman
July 12th, 2010, 01:36 PM
Well I thought one difference between FTL and FTl/Hyperspace is hyperspace can in essence travel through something (like the astroid that went through Earth) but in pure FTL you have to avoid large objects (think Millennium Falcon - Harrison Ford in Star Wars)...just a thought.

Also, an alien race could be blocking all the gates or something.

AtlantisAssassin
July 12th, 2010, 01:37 PM
i think this episode is probably gonna be based around the concept of the phrase "running the gauntlet" as mentioned above. based on the fact that the previous episode is being called Blockade, i think we may run into some race that has technology that can disable FTL technology, maybe using a special type of pulse wepeon or through the use of special ships, like the Interdictors in Star Wars and they basically block the Destiny's path and the episode is about evading them. just my intial theory based upon the title :P

At this point, we really have no idea how Destiny's FTL works. I'm guessing that since normal space is visible in FTL that Destiny is supposed to be travelling in some sort of bubble of spacetime (which would also account for the lack of relativistic effects), but even then I have no idea how it would interact with things in normal space, and even this it's still massively speculative...

I hope destiny blockades the Smurf world and eats them.

I don't know why but I seem to be obsessed with some crew members eventually eating some of the aliens they come across.

Scott7070
July 14th, 2010, 02:53 AM
FTL doesn't prevent a blockade being a problem. I didn't mean the blockade to just be a large stationary object... A bunch of ships or whatever can chase and attack Destiny wherever it goes, preventing the ship to reach its destination (a bit like when the smurfs had a tracking device on the ship/Rush). That is 'running a gauntlet'.

Perhaps this would link in to the battlefield that Eli apparantly sees in S2 somewhere?

"The Hero's Gauntlet" level from Hercules video-game comes to mind, with all the the running, and the obstacles and all that....

Aewon

I think it might be similar to Star Trek's "Encounter at Farpoint", except the aliens are organic and use technology. If so, I'm hoping it's the "Faith" aliens. Maybe they feel the need to test the Destiny crew, to make sure they're up to the task.

Methinks Gauntlet (being part 2/a follow on from Blockade) will have to deal with the fact Destiny has to run through a blockade of alien ships in order make it to their destination/out of the galaxy/on it's course & will have to run a gauntlet of sorts with all the ship trying to pound the crap out of Destiny (possible spoilers for earlier in S2 : possibly to do with the space battle that may allegedly may happen earlier in the Season)?

We know Destiny is old, & considering how well it fared against only 2 ships from the Smurf aliens last time they were in the void between galaxies, I don't know how it would far against a possible amerada of ships in that regard. :P

The plan was to start beating out the big season finale this morning, but with Brad on Stage 6 overseeing the first day of main unit on Seizure and Carl down on Stage 5 overseeing the icky second unit action on Hope, we never did get around to gathering.Then, after lunch, I was in casting for two hours, checking out potential Corporal Reynolds, Sara Johansens, Steven Johansens, 12 year old TJ’s, and Tasia’s. By the time I got back upstairs, it was too late and now we’re eyeing Monday as a potential target of opportunity.

Difficult to gauge what he means by satisfying and surprising. He doesn't outright answer whether it will be a cliffhanger, but 'satisfying' seems to suggest that there will be some form of conclusion. I wonder if it will be similar to Lost City in the that main storyline of the episode will be concluded, yet there's also a WTF cliffhanger left open for the future? Cant wait to see it either way.

I hit the 16 page mark and, if all goes as planned, should have it half completed for my return to the office on Wednesday – by which time I’ll have to set it aside for a couple of days while I tackle my producer’s edit of The Hunt.

Also, watched my cut of The Hunt this afternoon. The A, B, and C stories interweave nicely and, again, some nice character and comic beats peppered throughout. The T.J. flashbacks are officially filed away for next season – but that’s fine because it pushes me to come up with a T.J.-centered story. Both Carl and Brad came up with some terrific potential season 3 stories. Let’s just say the second season finale sets up a VERY INTERESTING scenario.

No way, they will end the series just with the cliffhanger and that´s it.

Also they will not make a movie like SG1 (which ended the Ori-Story), perhaps they will make in some years a fourth series who will pick the story up in the first episode, but I doubt also that.

Pretty sure you are right. Mallozi's blog strongly hints at that ending. "He says check back late season 2" Looks like everyone who hated the stones are going to love this episode. I for one loved the stones but I was sure they were going to get rid of them creatively without the stones being destroyed.

I was in the office today to watch the Day 1 mix of episode #220, Gauntlet. And what a mix it was! We had a grand total of two notes, and they were mere looping issues. Carl, who also had two notes, emailed them our way this morning. They were: “31:00 Music cue over this montage is awesome. 40:40 Music cue over end of show montage is awesome.” A terrific job by all involved, and an extra special thank you to composer Joel Goldsmith for his always excellent work. The visual effects for this episode are almost complete (kudos to Mark Savela and co.) and they are incredible. It’s a spectacular yet poignant season ender. Hopefully, by the time its airs, we’ll have definite word on a potential movie or two. If it’s a go and fans can look forward to a proper end to Destiny’s mission, then Gauntlet will certainly set the stage for a grand conclusion. If, on the other hand, things don’t pan out and Gauntlet does turn out to be the bittersweet finale, fans will be thrilled, touched, heartbroken – and left to wonder what could have been.

Yu still alive, it would be strange if he was, I was not put it past the old fella. But with his dementia he not much of a threat surely.

the name of the ship may also suggest that it has a connection w/the radiation source, at least in some way based on the ancients understanding of it, at the time of building the ship.

The ship is badly damaged during the battle with the drones and the few surviving repairbots have to make repairs. Only problem is that the FTL engines will have to go offline in a few days which drops them short of the next galaxy by like half a year so they have to go into stasis so they can make the journey.

Shokada

I really hope that they don't give us an ending that involves stasis pods. I think that I remember hearing this episode being compared 'Unending' on Joe's blog, which would suggest that the episode doesn't end with them in the stasis pods. Rather whatever ending would provide closure to the episode and the story arc, but not to the entire show.

Personally, I'm hoping that we get to understand more about the signal and get to see some incredibly advanced and awesome piece of technology. That, for me, would make the ending good, regardless of who dies.

Only problem is that the FTL engines will have to go offline in a few days which drops them short of the next galaxy by like half a year so they have to go into stasis so they can make the journey.

That makes sense.
But I suspect is will be more lack of power and failure to be able to recharge before leaving the galaxy behind. Plus with all the extra guests (new crew) on board, food supplies are going to be a stretch.

But they could always combine the above reason with Rush, Eli, and Brody, and Volker and the other scientists staying awake to implement repairs and continue to grow food why the rest sleep.

The repair bots are not automated, someone has to programme them to carry out repairs on the vessel. An as we have seen it can take weeks to programme them to repair the engines.

Why also acting as security against Lucian alliance and any other uninvited guests.

In this situation the military personnel are surplus to requirement and I guesting it the same for many of the Novas people. Through I am kind of hoping there are a few scientists amongst them.

D Toccs
April 21st, 2011, 10:22 AM
I am guessing that everyone on board will go in to stasis due to the power requirements/damage from the battle.
But . . . . .
The last shot will be some sort of console beeping and showing a warning display indicating that something has gone wrong. As the ship drifts along into the distance.

If there was a season 3 we would see how the crew overcomes this possibly with some loss of reshirt life. But with no season 3, this will serve as what Mallozzi called a "bittersweet" ending.

Does anybody think that Destiny will find some kind of weapon or ship on the planet in Blockade? or perhaps they'll find some design in the archives from Novus? After all, the description for Gauntlet says that Destiny makes a stand against the drones and I can hardly see that Young and Rush will be willing to go in alone against them. Does anybody have any other suggestions of interesting and imaginative ways that Destiny may be able to fight off the drones?

My speculation for the seres finale is two, well three, things can happen.


1. Destiny, along with its crew, go down fighting. Its a good fight but everyone dies. The end.
2. They barely make it out alive with heavy casualties and continue the mission.
3. They all get magically transported back to the milky way and find themselves among a deadelus class ship.


Thats the only three things I can think of that would happen, among other outlandish endings such as a supernova randomly exploding in the middle of the battle or a gamma ray burst obliterating everything.

This :D

I was so hoping they'd meet up with some Futurans - just to see Rush's reaction to his 'worshippers'

Or their reaction to "lord Rush"~!

BOW DOWN!




From the preview it seems Rush and Eli are the only ones staying awake. It would have been interesting to see those two cope being alone with each other for months/years in season 3.



It would make sense.. Those 2 are the best at manually operating the ship as we saw this weeks ep.

The drone ship in the scene where rush say they cant run they cant hide, looks far bigger than any we have seen before. Looks as big as destiny herself if not bigger.

An I think we are going to see some of the prettiest space battles scenes in the show ever. Anyone knows whats Geer is saying the at the end there. I got "we all go out together" but what was he saying before that.

“Gauntlet” will be a cliffhanger, unfortunately, which Mallozzi described as being in the same category of cliffhanger as SG-1′s “Camelot,” SGA’s “The Siege II,” and SGU’s “Incursion II,” and gave this “fair warning” about the conclusion of the Stargate franchise “as we know it”: “Gauntlet, in particular, is very touching and its conclusion will no doubt you leave you…among many other things…frustrated, incredulous, outraged, offended, annoyed, vexed, saddened, distressed, bitter, aghast, irritated, unsatisfied, pissed-off, melancholy, miserable, confused, furious, dejected, riled, shocked, heartsick, angry, surprised, exasperated, indignant, enraged, despondent, bewildered, dismayed, incensed, stunned, and grief-stricken.”

I thought Gauntlet cliffhanger won't be as big as these ones.

I does not just explode, it seems some crazy person decides to play the drones at there own game and launch a Kamzazi run of there own.

I am guesting Chloe going to be single if we had a season 3. With Scott manning the shuttle.

I do not see Rush sacrificing his life, we see Eli and Rush freezing the crew anyway which I guest is after the battle. An we see James and Eli hugging each other.

TJ cant fly the shuttle, as far we know.
Guest it could be park unable to live with her blindness.
Greer we have never seen at the control stations of the shuttle before have we.

An I do not think Volker or Brody are the types to go on a suicide run.

An Wray have never learnt to fly the shuttle either.

So my guest it will either be Park or Scott. Scott seem most likely to me.

It's possible. The shuttle doubtless has an autopilot function. If they really wanted to, they should be able to rig up a subspace link to control it by remote.

The episode's ending would have led into "a great opener for season three," Wright said. "But when we saw the Tuesday night ratings on Syfy, we knew it might be the end," he added, saying tonight's episode brings the series "full circle" and features elements that "make it feel like a finale."

jumpers had to be rigged with remote control though - zalenka and mckay had to hook them up to the chair. even then it failed again during the siege, and i don't think it was made clear whether it was a flaw in the interface, or in the power supply.

the ancients would likely have expected that if a shuttle was flying, it likely had someone actually in it - and considering they hoped for atlantis to rise again, yet forgot to put a failsafe in place to ensure it would be capable, it wouldn't be surprising that they may easily have overlooked autopilots on shuttles.

however - the shuttle that was returned, apparently by the planet builders - did the people on board control it on the approach to destiny or was it on auto? if auto - whether by ancient or PB design - it should be possible to reverse-engineer the system, and hopefully hook in weapons and targeting as well.

Having the Kamzazi run being done by autopilot takes all the drama out of it.

An plus we were told there would be two deaths this season, so far we have had zero.

Through technically Volker did die on Novas but that a cheat by the writers if they are counting that one of there deaths.

I believe Rush was aiding them on the approach.

I think they were talking about the duplicate Rush and Telford in Twin Destinies. Seems sorta like a cheat though.

The cast and crew of 'SGU' wrapped filming on the current season before learning of the show's cancellation. But Wright says he crafted 'Gauntlet' to work as both a season finale and as a series finale.

I read something like that from JM, that Gauntlet will be like a series finale :D

I suppose none of the primary characters have bit the dust, save for the previously mentioned alternate versions of Rush and Telford, but plenty of secondary characters have that have had dramatic impacts on our crew.

Riley in "Aftermath" - major impact on Young

Ginn and Amanda Perry - major impacts on Eli and Rush

Secondary characters dying in Stargate is nothing new, but certainly their direct impact has been much more prominent in SGU. Still if they were going to kill off a primary character a season finale is always a create time to do so...
