That would have been twice as effective had it actually been Torri Higginson, but. It still kind of feels like I just had my heart ripped out through my chest. Mum says she doesn't think she'll ever be able to watch it again - which puts this episode into a list with the episode where Buffy pushes Angel into hell, Heroes, and Sleeping in Light. Because.
"Who are you?" "elizabeth weir" actually made my jaw drop, even though in retrospect, it was narratively obvious. Mum gasped and scared the dogs.
The conversation after they closed the gate went something like this:
Mum: Do they know?
Me: I don't know. Elizabeth totally would do something like that, not tell them...
Mum: Well Woolsey definitely knows. Look at his face. He looks kind of sick.
Me: Okay, yes, but I don't think she'd tell John and Rodney unless... aaaaand I'm wrong.
And their FACES! And Rodney having to get away from them. And. And.
Seriously. I don't think I'll be able to watch it again for a while, but that? Totally worked.
I maintain: Elizabeth was a much more interesting character after she died. O.O
