    That was insane! Great fight sequences and amazing emotion. My heart was breaking for Helen. Truly, her choice was gut wrenching. Poor Invisible Girl.

    The end, though. All I have to say is "WHA?!"

    Great episode, can't wait until next week!

    Okay did SyFy use all it's CGI budget on SGU because normally this show has great CGI and tonight it was painfully obvious that they were on green screen, like it wasn't even trying to blend them in. It really took me out of the story to be honest. This looked like CGI/Actor blending from ten years ago.

    Anyone else notice how bad it was?

    Well last weeks episode was very good....this one hit it out of the park! Great action, suspense and emotions. I really enjoyed John's part of how he feels about Ashley inheriting those bad traits from him. Then Helen trying to come up with a solution that wouldn't kill Ash, and coming to the realization that she was wrong. Also her talk with Will that it had to be her that used the weapon. If that wasn't enough, the talk with Ashley at the end, when finally she saw her daughter come back, and saving her life by ending her own (if she's really dead). Very dramatically played by Amanda and Emilie. I have to say everyone did an awesome job. Brava/Bravo to all

    Honestly, I don't pay all that much attention to CGI so no, I didn't notice anything bad about it. That's not what interests me most about Sanctuary. I started watching Sanctuary because I'm a huge Amanda Tapping fan. I've continued to watch because I find the characters and stories interesting.

    I'm loving season 2 so far. Last week's and this week's episodes both had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

    Can't wait to see what comes next!

    One thing - I'm really not a big fan of Kate. My apologies to the actress playing her. It's not the actor's fault. I'm just not enjoying her character at all.

    Oh. My. Gosh.

    Oh, how I hate it when some of the best characters get killed off. And this was a double whammy too. Ashley and Clara.

    The acting was incredible. The last scene with Amanda and Emilie just about broke my heart. At least Ashley was still there, somewhat. I'm hoping for a whole lot of answers next week.

    I loved Druitt's bit about Ashley inheriting his traits, and I loved Helen's talk with Bigfoot. It's nice to see him back. I loved the part when he started slapping Will around after his recovery.

    I'm still not warming to Kate. Her character just . . . doesn't seem to fit. I'm not really looking forward to watching her all season long.

    The one thing that I'm really confussed about is Kate's bit at the end. ("Hey, Blondie!") I thought that she had killed Ashley right then and there with the weapon. It looked like it completely disintergrated her. But right afterwards, Ashley was right there, trying to protect Helen. So what exactly did Kate do to her?

    That is all. This episode has left me really depressed. But I can't wait for more!

    Edit: Oh! And poor Damian the Nubbin!

    I've been trying to bury my head in the sand and stay away from spoilers, but those rumors have dug their way down to me and I've fought back the black clouds. I hope and pray that Ashley isn't gone. I was screaming at the TV, "NO!!!!". Of course right before that I was screaming "YES!!!" as Ashley saved Helen. What great acting all the way around.

    Damian had told us during our set visit that in the original script, Tesla's weapon was supposed to blow up the nubbin, but he was told that he couldn't blow up nubbins. He was disappointed.

    As for the episode itself, I still haven't processed it all.

    Loved the scene with Helen and John and the scene with Helen and Biggie. Amanda pretty much knocked this entire ep way out of the park.

    And I am sure Ashley is just SciFi dead. Though Cara looked dead dead.

    The jury is still out on Kate Freelander.

    Did anyone notice the black tape on Helen's shirt when she had the leather vest off? Maybe I only noticed it because she was wearing it at lunch and there was a small white logo on it, which they covered up with the tape.

    Loved the ep! So busy!

    I thought the FX were great. Yeah, the big abnormal was a bit obviously CGI, but really, considering so much is green screen, that was a small quibble.

    Not sad Clara is gone. Felt bad for Will though.

    John and Helen together... wow. And he was being the reasonable one!

    Amanda Tapping blew it away, as did Emilie Ullerup.

    I'm still a bit confused as to how the Cabal got video of the inside. They found the bugs that Gregory placed and AFAIK he was only at the main Sanctuary.

    Rewatching. Though the DVR is crap, stuttering.

    Ok this chapter had me crying at the end.

    AT was awesome now I can see she can deal with humor, drama and deep emotions, never seen her like that before.

    I’m loving this season so much, the first episode was very good this episode was fantastic.

    Really like the way they used the split scenes

    Will not leaving after invisible girl was killed, supporting Magnus was felt real

    Ashley, protecting mom and sacrificing herself minutes after she had tried to kill her very good and very sad.

    The battle scenes were realistic and painful to watched , especially Ahs and Druit

    Tesla was himself and I got to like him better this time around.

    Magnus! You are my new reason to return to sci-fi, my Fridays are save thanks to Amanda (I love you) that last two scenes with Ashley and Magnus were super good, I couldn’t help but to feel bad for Helen, when she relates to their time when Ashley was younger was very touching, and Ashley reacted to her.

    New girl, last episode was kind of annoying and whiny today she was the same but them redeem herself when she stayed and save Magnus when Ashley lost control so Kate you have a + point

    And Big Foot is BACK!!! That scene in the elevator was sweet

    I can wait for next the episode…hoping they keep the standards they set up till now any how I know I’ll watch just because of AT.

    After Magnus left Druitt and walked into the elveator I thought we were going to see her lose it like Carter did in "Singularity".

    I agree the CGI was really bad at times and did take away from the overall enjoyment of what was otherwise a really good episode. I enjoyed the story but I do wish they had the money and time to put more into the CGI/Visual effects and music for a better overall higher production quality.

    Wow that was Amazing!!! I loved this episode.

    Didn't really feel bad when invisible girl got killed, but did feel bad for Will.

    The fight between John and Ash was good, especially when he got her with his sword on her side at the end of the fight and and she cried out in pain.

    And when they released the elemental and Ashley was getting burned alive, that was... whoa

    But when Helen was trying to get through to Ash and started talking about when she was younger, omg that was so sad. I felt so bad for Helen. Then at the last moment when she stopped the other girl from killing Helen and seemed to have recognition. But when she teleported out and Helen started crying... I'm pretty sure I was ready to cry!

    I really hope that Ashley isn't dead... and some how comes back later. Now I really can't wait for next week's episode to see what happens.

    I think Kate definitely blew Ashley up, but then Ashley regenerated herself from the explosion. So that of course begs the question why that couldn't be done with the shield too. Although I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that if you die while using your powers, or at least John's teleporting power, you stay dead.

    A couple of points, from my POV.

    1. I thought this episode was amazing.

    2. I'm concerned that there are no longer going to be invisible people. I liked Clara.

    3. If they bring Ashley back by some clone or some such, I will go to wherever they film this and push the idiots who thought of that from the highest room of the highest tower of the highest....something....

    4. CGI effects don't really get in my way of the show, unless they are blatantly in my face. And the ones that were that blatant, I thought were....realistic.

    5. Again, this entire cast deserves Golden Globes and Emmys for this. Like...wow. I haven't seen sci-fi this good in a long while.
