    Red face Lt. Vanessa James survives!

    Am I the only one who's pleased to see she wasn't killed ?

    For a couple of seconds i thought that she was gone when the mine exploded.

    I didn't think she would die due to spoilers. Although seriously injured came to mind simliar what happened to Riley in S1

    Yeah with that explosion I was pretty unsure if she lived or not.

    It felt like nearly every character was was about to die in this episode, one of many reasons it was so awesome:

    -Volker at gunpoint
    -Park + bomb
    -James + another bomb
    -Greer taking a bullet

    This is one of those things that just wouldn't have the same effect in the other series. The amount of tension in this one was absolutely insane.

    I was thinking the same thing. With so many of the secondary characters in peril, it felt like any of them could get scragged at virtually any point in the chase. The chase itself felt like a high-energy revenge western which made the episode one of the series' best so far. With the other SG-1 or Atlantis, we knew that the other SG team members were somehow going to make it out alive. But with Riley's death and then Ginn and Amanda Perry's, it felt like any of them could get scragged at any time. Really brilliant.

    She survived, but her head was bleeding even with the tactical helmet, which means she probably hit her head pretty hard, which means concussion.

    I hope SGU wont do like Smallville where concussions happen in every other episode and with characters that should technically be in vegetative states due to cumulative effects. How are they suppose to solve this big mystery if after a few years theyre just a bunch of head banged morons?

    HaHaHa, Nice One...... While the Trailer didn't make me think she was gonna die at all, as soon as Rush Started messing around and then yelling at Scott I knew they'd be fine, a little banged up but fine.

    I think they went over the top with it though, the more the writers act like someone is going to die the less the audience believes it because its so commonplace.

    They kill off redshirts left and right but you know the main characters are never in danger.

    Ah, but James and the others were not main characters which was precisely why they were fair game to get scragged. TPTB have set a precedent by getting rid of Ginn, Amanda Perry, and Riley gone: Any of the secondaries—including Vanessa James or Volker—could get eliminated at any time.

    ah ha ha . Seriously injured came into my mind too. When I saw her first lift her head, with all that blood, I was sure that she lost an eye. I was thinking, like a really sexy Col. Tigh.

    I thought she had lost her lower leg as she came up as i was watching with pretty crappy quality.

    It does seem strange to me that no one gets serious wounds in stargate BSG was good for this

    Spoiler:

    Tigh loses an eye during torture
    Geata loses a leg to infection


    it gives a lot of new possibilities for permanent consequences without killing people it's also something mains aren't safe from.

    Those aren't fake. Search Youtube for a movie she was in a few years ago. Definitely no silicone there. She was given for free what women pay several thousand $ to have (and not look as good).

    I can't believe I am going to discuss this.

    But you can tell by the orientation of the breast if a woman has had implants or not. The way they drop a little tells us they are not implants. A woman who has had plastic surgery on her breasts will have them stand up on the top of her chest versus "orient down". Its clear from that that the actor playing James didn't have implants

    I'm going to ask nicely that out of respect for an actual real person, you guys cut it out. Discussing someone this way is rude - would you speak that way about her if the actress was in the room?

    Me too! Given how many awesome people we've lost this season, I was afraid she's a goner, too. Luckily that didn't happen.

    I know this is a rethorical question, but for normal men the answer would be yes (or rather HEALL YAHHH BOOOYAAHHHH!!!)... do you honestly think she would mind?
    I'm an average viewer. As plain as they come. People make TV shows based on my demographic.
