Okay, I was spoiled to some degree - I knew Carson's eventual fate (and the reason) and I knew that at some point, John Sheppard would reveal that he'd been married. Otherwise, not so much. Also, I watched it with my completely unspoiled husband.

He was shocked at Carson's death. And he's really good at predicting these things, so that's well done. It also worked that most of the episode was lighthearted and fun.

Otherwise - Elizabeth's admirer? Pretty. He needs a bit more meat on his bones, but smart and funny and bearded. Yep. :) Rodney and Katie? Adorable, but he does seem to be dating her for dating's sake. Now, I do think that Rodney is, in fact, more straight than not, and clueless as to other people, so I'm not really bothered by this. It wa adorable. And sweet. And funny. And I'm glad she lived. :)

John and Ronon? Oh, my goodness. The golf game. What I'm going to assume is a Satedan school yard game (and what was going to happen in the third round? Crawling on the ground? Or is that fourth, with the third hoping and using their teeth?), and John losing badly, so they end up with tea and cake beer and pretzels and sharing life stories. So. Butch. :)

And after 8 years, he's still mourning his "close-enough" wife? Yeah, I can see that, especially since those memories have all been recently dredged up. And the years running might well be a blur to him. As for John?

I believe marriage didn't work out for him. And I also loved the truly casual way he said, "Or a man." He really doesn't care. Which only speaks to John as a person and maybe a CO, and not anything else.

John/Teyla, btw? Friendship.

Speaking of friendship? Rodney and Carson bffs? Only in a universe where John and Rodney are other than friends. But I ws sad, too. I liked Carson. He made some really bad moral choices, and he was in way over his head, but I'll miss him.

On the other hand, what happened to the other guy who died? That poor marine? No funeral for him? Or was it just skipped?

I told Lee, tongue firmly in cheek, maybe he lived since he was all suited up. Poor guy, not even a mention.

And, you know, since once Carson had started removing the tumor, they couldn't stop him, he should have stopped the lockdown then and had the bombsquad guy waiting.

Then no one might have died...

I knew Carson's eventual fate (and the reason)
What was the reason? Competing real world commitments?

I meant the exploding tumor.

Oh, sorry. The SG Universe is tough on MDs apparently.

We thought the same thing. Poor Fraser.

Oh, yay! US people are finally catching up with SGA.

Sunday broke my mind. I had heard rumours about Carson leaving the show but I thought he would go back to earth or something like that. I certainly didn't expect them to kill him off with an 'exploding tumor' (how stupid was that?).

I liked the mood and the character interaction in this ep. Lorne is a painter? John and Ronon were hilarious and I think Ronon made that game up to punish John for making him go golfing with him XD.

Overall, it was a good ep which went a little over the top at the end. Rodney and Carson spirit/ghost/soul/hallucination set against a sunset was a little too much for me.

I actually thought it was a schoolyard game. Although - there was an element of improvisation about it. And he got to make body contact...
