    Love the new opening theme music, hate the voice over; it should be Kevin Sorbo's voice. And I love the "cheap" looking magog suits! They're a riot!

    Interesting what they did to Harper. Poor guy. His worst nightmare coming true.

    I liked this episode. The new theme music was good.

    Good point bwaybaby79 about Harper's nightmare. That gives an interesting twist. I liked the interaction between Harper and Tyr. Just the contrast between the two and yet the way they worked together.

    Also loved Beka having to make the tough decision and fulfill Dylan's trust in her. She did a good job.

    Then of course there was Trance and her probabilities.

    Now the Commonwealth is so much more important because they have an enemy to face. It will be interesting to see how it plays out with the Magog.

    Definetly a good start to the season.

    As a Haper fan I protest---
    Why did you do this to my Harper?
    I was *very* upset at first -- I've calmed down a lot!

    Believe it or not I haven't seen this ep--but I'm a hopeless
    spoiler junkie-I know enough; well, ok, a little anyway!
    I will see it on repeats and no one will interfere. (Out of town trip-urgghh!)

    I know this gives a tension to future eps;Harper in danger and all, but the poor guy has indeed has his worst fears come
    true.
    As for the Magog, I think some very good and saintly person (Rev?); needs to help these people out.
    They definitely need a new way to,um, make little Magog.
    Not winning any friends that way.
    And if they are made by another being other than the Divine,
    then what exactly is the creature that made them?
    The opposite of the Divine? Oh, scary thought there!

    Sorry I missed the first ep.

    later,

    You've all forgoten Rev Bem. His faith was tested in this more than I ever thought possible. Until next week's came about. Which is good, every Saint had to go through a major test to prove their devation. Of course most non Saints who do the test are never heard from again.

    Also what is a

    I believe Gyre is


    Function: noun
    Etymology: Latin gyrus, from Greek gyros
    a circular or spiral motion or form; especially : a giant circular oceanic surface current

    I guess maybe its referance is to the magog world structure as it widens to take over the cosmos..:)

    pure conjecture on my part of course <BG>
