Winter Sunlight

Yes, I am SAD and PATHETIC, we all know this, moving right along...

So I'm playing the SGA Season 2 behind-the-scenes featurettes in the background while I draw (or presently, being on an art-break, while I type), to keep me from watching the same 5 seconds of the Season 4 trailer from Comicon over and over and over again.

Those who have seen the trailer will probably have no difficulty figuring out which five seconds...

And then, to make sure that there is no question whatsoever in anyone's mind that I am completely and utterly pathetic, I screencapped it. Screencaps and S4 spoilers under the cut ... well, 5 seconds of spoilers, anyhow. But it's probably an important scene...


SO I had already read about this scene in liketheriverrun's Comicon report, which means I've been desperately hoping some kind person would put the Comicon trailer online so I could see it. And now I am happy. Well ... no. Now I want Season 4 EVEN MORE. But also happy.

Have I mentioned that, for pure angst value, defibrillator scenes are one of my favorite things EVER? Especially with loved ones standing by, angsting. (The blurriness of these screencaps, alas, is due to the low quality of the trailer.)


OMG DEAD!


Clear!


Keller: "He's dead."


Dead!Rodney. (Dead shirtless Rodney, no less.) And John, off to the right; unfortunately we can't see his face, but I sense "major freakout" coming.

I do try not to get my hopes up for h/c based on spoilers, but how can there not be h/c from this?! And Keller's wearing a biohazard suit while John's not ... THAT can't be good...

I'd be a lot more worried if I thought for a minute that they were actually going to kill Rodney, but not very likely. Although I actually am a little concerned that they might "reboot" his character -- bring him back as an AU version or something.

*crosses fingers that we keep our same Rodney*

*watches trailer again*

OMG! Thank you for screencapping. Not pathetic at all. *g* I want Season 4! NOW!!
August is Sad and Pathetic Month, right?

Naturally! *grin* We'll all be sad and pathetic together until the new season starts.
omg, thank you for capping that part! I had seen Rodney but totally missed the haz mat suits and Sheppard in the background (my computer is playing the vid with distorted quality, which sometimes happens to me with sci-fi.com's vids too *grrrrr* so it's hard to make out any details.

I wish I had a better quality trailer to make caps from. But Sheppard is definitely off to the right, watching them; I just wish it was possible to see his expression.
Awesome caps - well done you! Looking at this scene, I'm really starting to think this is from....

SPOILERS AHEAD! AVERT EYES NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE!!!

...Doppelganger and that this is Keller's nightmare (about losing a patient) and the Sheppard we see Evil!Shep influencing the dream...?
Didn't read the spoiler *grin* but I think I can guess what it might have been, since I do know a little about the plots of the first few episodes.

Just gonna wait and see, though.
Okay, other than the obvious casting stuff this is the first spoiler I've let myself see.

And may I say...

*GAPES*

Uh...I was gonna say...

*GAPES*

Yeah...that.
I'm with Ali on this being...
SPOILER!

from Doppleganger. I envision an evil grin on Shep's face....
and is there anything wrong with that?? (Being a h/c junkie that is)
I do try not to get my hopes up for h/c based on spoilers, but how can there not be h/c from this?!

Oh I don't know - the writers of this show are really good at dishing out the hurt but leaving out the comfort. I am going to wait and see what they do.

I doubt they would "reboot" Rodney - the writers love the character to much the way he is. (I get the feeling that for some of them Rodney is a bit of Marty-Stu - abet one that doesn't get all the girls) Moreover some of the other spoilers I have read really only work with our Rodney.

As for how this scene is going to play out - we will have to wait and see. Evil Scifi for making us wait until Sept for this.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Heh, did you read the very-slight-spoiler Mallozzi gave me that someone posted on the McShep journal? With that and other things he's said about Shep!Whumppage on his blog, I think JoeM has a real spoft spot for the h/c lovers. *G*
Okay, I avoided almost all spoilers until now. Couldn't resist watching that. Squeeeeee....
Yes! Bring on season 4! And yet I am attempting to avoid spoilers (except a certain class of spoiler, in which I will indulge at the end).

Why do we have to wait until the END of SEPTEMBER? Yes, yes, I know those of you not in the US never got it in July anyway (because none of you would EVER, like, download it), but I want it NOW!

Many thanks for the link to the trailer! I will now return to attempting to dodge most of the spoilers while still getting a little something to whet my appetite....

Can't wait to see Carson again! Can't wait to see Carson again! I can't handle my favorite characters dying. Yes, if one is going to die, PLEASE let me know in advance (I knew "Heroes" was coming too ; when I first heard the rumors about "Sunday" I didn't believe them, but I knew the sad truth well before the episode aired over here, or I'd have been EVEN MORE TICKED than I am now).
If one of my faves is coming back, better still. Now I'm praying for SGA to get a season 5, and for the SCB campaign to get their way and bring Carson back permanently. They've been giving Joe Mallozzi chocolate, which is definitely a smart move.
OMG, that was RODNEY? The trailer I saw had such bad resolution that it wasn't possible to see who Keller was attempting to defibrillate. I wish my doctor would put me in a drug-induced coma until Sept. 28. Now only would I lose weight, but I would, you know, lose wait, as well! But, anyway, whatever episode your caps come from, I'm shocked (pun!) and stunned (more pun!) that my Rodney appears to be dead!

BTW, I really enjoyed your short Ronon/Rodney piece.
You screencapped it! Now I don't have to keep re-watching it over and over. I can come here and scroll.

Season 4 seems so far away.
Oh, no. There's no way they'd 'reboot' McKay. McKay is McKay and must remain McKay. No, I'm sure it's a ruse. A ruse, dammit! :)

God, can it be September now?
I squeed when I saw that bit! But now it's ruined for me slightly by me wondering - is he flatlining in that bit? If he is, why are they using the defibrilator?

(gets annoyed at medical cliches)
HAHAHA if you're sad and pathetic, then what am I? My thought process after finishing the last ep of S3 went something like - AHHH MORE NOW... wait a minute, now I can check out those screencaps, whee!

...screencaps are making me flail. And squee. And, oh, they couldn't do anything to Rodney, I don't think... *crosses fingers*

...dead, and John...! *flails*
