So, I was going just to post about how after I sort of embraced the dumbness of the decisions make in the Atlantis universe and enjoyed a batch of episodes the writers made me loathe McKay and that new doctor lady with the last episode of season 4 (well, with McKay I just loathed him more). But I thought that before I ranted about that I would post a picspam of the season two episode 'The Long Goodbye,' because I really loved that one. In this episode Elizabeth Weir, due to the Stargate Atlantis' team usual brilliant thinking, not only gets possessed by an alien entity but manages to convince them to allow Sheppard to be possessed also. And then she tries to kill him. *sigh* It is a beautiful thing to watch.



Photobucket
First Elizabeth gets possessed by an energy ray thing from one of a pair of alien coffins.

Photobucket
Then somehow 'she' convinces them to let true love have its way and allow Sheppard to be possessed also so that these entities can say goodbye. If you think that's a really stupid thing to allow, then you're right. Sadly, your intelligence means that you would never, ever fit into the Stargate Atlantis team where stupidity is valued and cherished like a precious flower.

Photobucket
Sheppard has a moment's doubt.

Photobucket
But McKay thinks it's romantic. By the way, he's supposed to be the smart one.

Photobucket
This is the gnarly old guy that Sheppard will be possessed by.

Photobucket
'Elizabeth' looks a bit shifty. As well she might because she's plotting devious things.

Photobucket
Then there's the alien possession.

Photobucket
Followed by the snogging.

Photobucket
Everyone looks a bit shocked. Starting with Colonel Caldwell.

Photobucket
Rodney wonders why no one wants to snog him. Let me tell you why, Rodney: you're the most genuinely annoying person I've ever seen. I have never so frequently wanted to stab a fictional character.

Photobucket
Suddenly there is gun-pointing

Photobucket
And then there is a wonderful scene where Rodney gets shot by Elizabeth. You would not believe how happy this made me.

Photobucket
After an attempt to kill Sheppard, Elizabeth runs wild for a bit. Then she gets surrounded by marines.

Photobucket
Nobody, not nobody, touches evil possessed by an alien Elizabeth Weir.

Photobucket
She pwns them all.

Photobucket
Then there's some stuff with Sheppard getting wounded. It's not very interesting.

Photobucket
Until evil possessed by an alien Elizabeth taunts him for a bit. I liked the taunting.

Photobucket
Everyone wonders what happened to their lovely romantic scenario. It's a sad thing to have to relate but they will learn nothing from this experience.

Photobucket
Elizabeth does something nasty with a computer and then threatens to kill everyone on the base by venting some gas.

Photobucket
Then, because this episode wasn't awesome enough, Teyla shoots Sheppard. This does not surprise Elizabeth because she knows how great Teyla is.

Photobucket
Sheppard gets tied up because the writers really want to spoil me.

Photobucket
Then there's more taunting by evil possessed by an alien Elizabeth. And she asks Teyla to shoot John or she will kill all the other people on the base.

Photobucket
That plan doesn't quite work out so she arrives to do the job herself.

Photobucket
Sadly she also gets knocked out. Then there's an embarassing scene afterwards in the infirmary.

Photobucket
Elizabeth starts to remember all the fun she had all the terrible things she did.

Photobucket
Caldwell arrives to remind them about the snogging.

Photobucket
Yep. That's going to be an embarassing report to make.



Now let me vent my spleen about the last episode of season 4.



So, right, as if I didn't hate Rodney McKay enough they give me this episode. Which also made me hate the new doctor too. Okay, Michael is wiping out the galaxy with his new superwraith. Teyla dies. Ronon and Carter die trying to fight back. Then there's a new change of plan which involves not helping anyone outside of Atlantis. Fair enough: McKay and new Doctor lady are pissed at this. So what do they do? THEY RESIGN AND FECK OFF BACK TO EARTH IN PROTEST. Do they spend their time sending help to Pegasus? Of course not! They're too busy snogging and going into business for themselves. WHAT THE FUCK?????? I'm supposed to think of this as being a moral decision? The only thing that makes McKay change his mind and decide to help out is that the new Doctor lady gets the coughing disease and is going to die. That's the only reason we're given. I HOPE ROCKS CRUSH THE TWO OF YOU AND YOU GET SOME HORRIBLE ALIEN FUNGAL INFECTIONS.

Ahem.

In one of the random AUs SG-1 likes to do THEY HAD SAM AND MCKAY MARRIED!!! Well, divorced, but still...

Had he drugged her or something? Please tell me that he had. SAM WOULD NEVER MARRY HIM AS HE IS EVIL.

McKay(at least in SG-1) isn't so bad around Sam in a way. Honestly, it's hard for me to hate him there. His crushj on her is justso oddly endearing. He heard his Sam was dead and you could see his withered little heart shatter.

My hate of McKay has reached unmanageable proportions. He is not worthy to be in the same room as Sam, let alone have her as his bride.

Divorced, because Sam wised up and went LORNE IS BENDIER THAN YOU, AND LESS WHINY.

ROFL. Literally. Still, after the first few eps, it was hard to hate him in SG-1. The crush on Sam is just so...massive. I can't hate characters who have giant crushes on Sam...

Everyone is less whiny than McKay. I SHALL NEVER BELIEVE THAT THIS AU MARRIAGE WAS NOT THE RESULT OF SOME ALIEN DRUG.

Well, that universe was like "what if everyone made the worst decision they could make?"

So...uhm...it was like "what if we let the SGA writers write SG1?"

Hot damn, that episode is STILL one of the hottest things EVER, between Liz with a gun and Teyla with her brain and--ARGH. This is why they keep shutting the women down. If they didn't, they would rule the universe.

It fills me with sadness that Liz was not allowed to beat some sense into the menfolk with guns on a regular basis. This episode fills me with warmth thoughts everytime I think about it.

ps.

Plus the bit where Caldwell reminds them of the kissing and Liz slinks down on her bed as she thinks about how she will gloss that one over in the reports? Funniest thing ever.

One wonders why Sam doesn't rule the universe. Especially given herteam of flunkies.
