    That was a really good episode.

    It was nice to take a break from the magnus/will dynamic for a bit. Biggy got to do something, we got another side of Kate, more insight into how the universe works, found out that sally dislikes bathing suits and Shanks played a decent character without chomping on the scenery.

    LOL, good to know that Michael Shanks is keeping his number of character death scenes high.

    I was sad to see Jimmy go. I would have liked to keep Michael as a guest/recurring character.

    This eppy was a good one. And that line is my favorite too.

    Poor Jimmy, doing the right thing in the end cost him his life, but guess the title was duly named as such.

    Ditto on all of the above.

    I also like a simple bit in the beginning when Henry tells Helen to destroy her walkie-talkie. Helen does so and then says "Now tell me why I just did that?" Complete trust in her team. I like that.

    If that were me and my partner in crime...um..co-worker it would have gone more like this:
    Spoiler:
    Beth: Bree destroy your walkie-talkie right now!
    Bree: smashes walkie-talkie and says "Now tell me why I just did that?"
    Beth: You are such and idiot!

    I, personally, hasn't seen him in anything where he hasn't die at least once....

    It was a very good episode, and I would have loved to see James again.

    I also should have noted that at that point Beth would have been holding her stomach and nearly collapsing with laughter.

    BTW- Another little note on this eppy. To me this episode proves unequivocally that Will is indeed "Robin" to Helen's "Batman".

    Also, if Amanda Tapping gets any hotter the polar ice caps will melt far faster than any scientist could ever have predicted. I hold her personally responsible for global warming!

    You know, normally I see the new episode before any of you, but not this week because of that fall finale thing. I didn't read anything about the episode, but I only read one part of Sky's comment saying it was a good episode, and when that I was like "AHHHHHHHHHH!" It's not fair.

    This was a very good ep, I'm really enjoying Alan McCullough's stories this year, lots of fun twists and turns.

    Cool to see the abnormal world fleshed out more, they're even in the Mob! I was thinking that they maybe were setting up the mob to be bigger players like they did the Cabal last year, but with the Duke's death at the end that doesn't seem likely.

    MS and AD were good together, some really nice comedic and dramatic beats, and AT and MS in the gun fight in the beginning was also great. And in general, I liked seeing the team working together, Bigfoot and Henry tracking down Jimmy and Kate, Helen bluffing the Duke twice, and Will for the 3rd ep in a row calling Helen 'insane'. Good stuff.

    And it was nice, 9 eps in, to get some backstory on Kate. I like the parallels between her's and Jimmy's history, both fell in with the wrong crowd, both got pulled out by Helen. And for Kate esp I liked the little touches like her mom going back to Mumbai and the picture of Ganesh on her nightstand. And the talk with Helen at the end was also quite nice.

    Did anyone else notice the swastikas on her backboard of her bed? I know that they're a religious symbol, so I have no problems.

    Very good episode.

    you guys think we will ever hear about who it was who sold out the sanctuary? Personally, I think it was kate. Michael gave a great performance .

    Wow. That was fast! Thanks for the link!

    Edit: Huh? That was like the first 30 seconds of the episode. Where is the rest of the podcast? *is confused*

    Cool ep. I'm still not seeing Kate as a true member of the Sanctuary, but she's sort of getting closer. MS was great here. Lots of great one liners.

    "You stopped breathing and I took the opportunity to make out with you."


    The few problems I had were, Jimmy putting a gun in Kate's hand and then operating on the shoulder that hand was attached to. And then the blood on Jimmy's has disappearing as if it was never there.

    I loved the Helen saved me part, and how it showed part of her past while still kept the mystery going, without the whole 'famous person I used to know' being tossed in.

    Henry and Biggie was as awesome as always.

    "I'll be walking then"
    "It's good for the heart"

    Robin looked so tiny next to AP.
    Spoiler:


    Also loved Helen messing with the bad guys. Speaking of which... she swims with the mermaid naked? It reminds me of a fic I once read.

    This episode was a bit of a non event for me. I don't like Kate (no Damian, this episode did not make me like her) and the character of Jimmy failed to engage me. This left me non caring for a significant part of the episode, there wasn't anything wrong with the episode or the premise of it, it was just me not connecting with two characters and their part of the story (a large part).


    It was good to see Biggie out and about and the team interacting and us getting a further glimpse into the Sanctuary world.

    So, either the mermaid prefers people to skinny dip with her or Helen has an evil sense of humour
