Me too, kelsi, I'm really hoping to see an episode where Klorel in a totally different and unexpected host shows up . . . . he has at least as big a grudge against SG1 as his daddy does.... not to mention one against Skarra! That'd be a great way to bring Skarra back.
Personally, i'm ok with that. If season 5 really is *THE END*, I'd rather not spend it having reunions with characters from plot threads that are finished. There are enough story lines still to be tied up, and only 22 episodes to do it in.
BTW, Alexis Cruz has a movie coming out in 2001 called "Bug". Sounds like it might be an art-house movie.
Characters are forgotten all the time on the show, what happened to Charlie the boy that the Ree'tou sent to Earth, and we sent to the Tok'ra to become a host? and there were alot of others too, but I cant mention them all off hand, I'd have to look them up.
Yeah, it happens all the time in TV. With only 43 minutes an episode, and only 22 or so a year, they can only spend a certain amount of that re-visiting old stories. Look at X-files or Buffy for example. Sometimes, too, the writers would love to bring someone back but the actor isn't available any more.
If we do get a season 6 this is one I definitely would like to see again, though.
There is loads of time for people such as Charlie to re-appear, when the plot gives them a chance. We don't get THAT many excursions with the Tok'ra, in person (apart from Jacob), yet they are major characters.
Would the Tok'ra really want to put Skaa'ra through the trauma of reliving all his painful time as a host - they would presumably use the holographic memory device as used by Hathor and Trofsky, and they would have maybe eighteen months worth of memories to check.
That was such a cool teaser! One unbroken shot of a glider being first pursued by Hataks, then the Hataks get blown out of the sky and then the glider falls out of orbit! That was also cool when there's another unbroken shot as Teal'c fires the Ion Cannon at the end and we see the shots coming from the cannon and follow it up all the way to it's target.
