Well, there it was. Carson being on the show again, Carson being off the show again. But being in the stasis chamber, it means he can become recurring in the future. It was nice to see Carson in action again. But other than that, the episode was just another hide and chase - they find Michael again, and he runs away again. At least they rescued what's left of the Athosians. Here are a few other thoughts:
As I said in last week's review, for one person/wraith Michael has done a lot. We can now add cloning, including copying the knowledge and personality of the subject, to his list of accomplishments. Maybe he'll clone himself and be a Ba'al-like adversary as well (please...no!).
This episode was really just about Carson - seeing him there and interacting with the group, especially McKay. But with all the up and down emotions throughout, just having Carson there made this episode worthwhile!
