  • Weir goes out with cunning and bravery.

    If anyone has read my review of the episode 'Sunday' in season 3, you will come to see how I feel about how NOT to kill off a character. Granted, Weir does not die in this episode, but it is a fabulous example of how a character should be written out of a show. She shows great cunning in deceiving the Replicators in order to save Sheppard and his team, and great bravery by sacrificing herself in order to alter the fate of Atlantis (hopefully) forever. One thing that annoyed me greatly about this episode (and many other episodes of Atlantis, truth be told) is that once again the characters feel it is necessary to explain every little nuance of their situation to the viewers instead of getting back to work (or working faster) on saving their own necks. Sheppard, so what if Weir is sacrificing herself? There is nothing you can do about it so instead of standing around chatting about it while the enemy closes in, get back to working on reprogramming the Replicators! Now!
