What makes me annoyed is that, although there wasn't anything shippy per se in the episode, they split up as Cam/Sam and Daniel/Vala to search for Teal'c. Can someone please tell me WHY Daniel always has to be with Vala whenever Sam is in the ep? Why don't they ever pair him with Sam? I asked those who saw it if he even interacted with her or Teal'c at all - or if they were even on the same piece of celluloid for even a second. I haven't gotten any replies yet, but I'm betting not.
I just wish I knew why they have to keep Daniel apart from Sam all the time now. Did they have a huge fight offscreen at some point? I just don't understand it. I'm sure the D/V shippers were just thrilled by this episode - well, I'm happy for you guys but I don't see the point of keeping him apart from Sam. I even posted on Joe Mallozzi's blog, asking him why there has been so little Sam and Daniel interaction this season (yeah, I knew the answer already, but I wanted to hear it from him too). Natch, he ignored my post. I guess he figured that either I already knew what he'd say, or he just didn't care... and I guess I'm not surprised.
I am just thoroughly disgusted that Daniel has to ignore Sam all the time. As far as I'm concerned they've ruined his character. Way to go, PTB. I am just ecstatic that this show is ending. If it's going to keep going down this downward spiral into the toilet then there is no point to keeping it around. I'm glad they pulled the plug on it. Of course now I worry they'll do the same to Atlantis, esp. with the MM boys influencing it... *sigh* these guys really know how to ruin a good thing.
I'm sorry for the blasphemy I've uttered here - but this is how I feel. I hate how they keep shoving Vaniel at us just to please a certain group of fans. I'm tired of them not doing any justice to the old friendships.
I'm sorry for doing so much complaining - I have a splitting headache at the moment so I'm not feeling so good. But a lot of my sentiments are real... I am just so disgusted over this. I guess the only thing I can do is pop in the old DVDs and relive the good times. :(
