    Daniel Why dead? spoilers through threads, character deaths

    Sometimes, actors are cut out of the show for some reason.
    Voluntarily, personal issues, maternity leaves, and etc.
    Since I've just begun to plunge into the world of Stargate,
    I have a few questions that have nagged me for quite some time.

    Why was Janet Fraser killed? (writers wrote her out, personal issues, etc)

    Why was Jacob Carter killed?

    Why did Daniel have to leave for the entire season 6?

    Why did General Hammond leave?

    Lastly, (I forgot) who was leading SG1 when O'Neill was the
    head of the Command?

    Are you looking for the "official", canon reason that the character left (e.g. Jack got promoted), or the "behind the scenes" reason that the actor left (e.g. RDA wanted to spend more time with his family)?
    Please clarify.

    This thread would be better in Gen Dis. Ask a mod to move it I can't be bothered anymore.

    Why was Janet Fraser killed?
    Not her choice. Someone high up decided a favorite character should be killed for ratings. They chose her. She did not want to go.

    Why was Jacob Carter killed?
    Not his choice. Written out, probably for ratings as well.

    Why did Daniel have to leave for the entire season 6?
    His choice. He chose to leave the show for good. Then surprised everyone by deciding to come back. He didn't like the way his character was written/utelized, then was happier with the changes they were making.

    Why did General Hammond leave?
    His choice. He wanted to retire, primarily due to health reasons and wanted to focus more on his painting (he's an artist.) However, since "retiring" he says he's been working more than ever!

    Lastly, (I forgot) who was leading SG1 when O'Neill was the
    head of the Command?
    First, RDA left of his own choice. Wanted to leave for years to spend more time in California with his daughter. He tried working fewer days on the show, and finally pulled out altogether since the darned show wouldn't end!

    Carter was leading SG-1 when O'Neill was the head of the SGC.

    Well I guess the film-staff tries to get some variety into the show... I mean 10 years the same stuff... I guess even we would have thought it's boring with some changes we have something to think about, discuss etc

    The writers thought it would be a great tribute to our men and women in service to kill off a charcter, plus they (foolishly, really) figured that was their last season.

    Why was Jacob Carter killed?

    Too old? Who knows. They bumped off Catherine too. I expect they'll kill off Cassie next year (oops, stepped in front of an ice cream truck!)

    Why did Daniel have to leave for the entire season 6?


    End of season 5, all contracts ran out. Michael Shanks decided not to renew as he was disappointed with the way the show was going (which I believe meant how the writers were penning his character). He returned in season 7 when the producers asked him back.

    Why did General Hammond leave?


    Contract ended, negotiations started; believe it was partly salary issues, but also health issues. He looks a lot better now. And he loves to paint. Big passion of his, so I've read.

    Lastly, (I forgot) who was leading SG1 when O'Neill was the
    head of the Command?


    Sam, right?
