    Though I seriously doubt they nuked DC, that's a hell of a cliffhanger to leave us on.

    I really like the new character developments between Wray and Greer. I hope that they don't completely forget about that after this episode . I'm also eager to find out what happened to the Senator and the other scientist, and of course what happened at Homeworld Command.

    First off, spoilers for the "Hope" promo:
    Spoiler:
    ARG NO, GINN'S CONSCIOUSNESS SURVIVING RUINS MY COOL ORIGINAL EPISODE IDEAS <_<


    Now that that's out of the way... I can't decide between ***1/2 and a full ****, that was just such a good episode. These characters have come so far in just a season and a half, I really can't believe how fantastic SGU has become.

    There are certain things that we know will never happen: (at least in the general accepted timeline, barring alteration or manipulation)

    1) more than 2/3 main characters permanently die at the same time/episode
    2) a major city is destroyed
    3) Earth is destroyed/defeated
    4) The entire universe flashes out of existence
    5) The main set is destroyed
    6) Every single enemy drops dead all at the same time

    These are just things to remember, but when you add twists such as alternate timeline, alternate reality, simulations, dreams, hallucinations, "lantern-hanging", these all are possible.

    I spent the first 20 minutes trying to figure out who the actor playing Covel was. Once I figured it out I felt really stupid for not picking up on it sooner.

    Overall it was another really good episode.

    It was a great "greer-wray" centered episode.
    BUT my only quip.. Why the heck did they use that bonerhead guy for a scientist? Doesn't he usually play Dweebs in comedies??

    I always imagined that at the end of Universe's five year run, they would discover how to control all time and space. And then they would mess it up and erase the entire multiverse.

    Someone (sorry, I don't remember who) theorized that the Destiny's current crew was sent back in time to the beginning of time and became the initial Ancients, like a self-fulfilling prophecy... that'd be so messed up. I thought it was an interesting theory, but it wouldn't happen that way, nor would anyone want it to.

    I liked the episode, but it was a step down from the past two amazing episodes IMO.

    I always love Lucian Alliance stuff though! Glad to be seeing more Varro.

    Oh definitely not quite as good as the past two, but I'd say only barely on that lower tier. Excellent acting, story, and characters.

    Uhg... Another stoner show... But it looks like it might be the last one of those... Assuming that the stones are burried and lost, or the bomb wasn't diffused. Or a half million years until their radioactive signature makes them safe-ish again.

    I like the stone episodes. Well, I like all the episodes, but I really like the stone episodes. I hope they aren't buried or lost, though . I do really want an offworld travel episode, though. At least Twin Destinies had a use of a Stargate (there were quite a few episodes in a row without so much as a gate activation . However, it would seem a bit out of place right now as far as the current story line is piling up.

    If the bomb was deactivated the radiation wouldn't be around for a long period of time

    Well, that and the radiation didn't have any effect on the stones.

    I was really looking forward to this episode since Comic-Con, was so excited for Greer/Wray moments

    This was 7.5-8 episode for me, it was good character moments the ship stuff lagged a little for me
