I'm somewhat surprised that SGU is wrapping up its first season with a focus on the relatively recent plot developments in this Lucian Alliance thread after spending so much time with other story elements. But I can't deny that the takeover of the Destiny makes for some grand excitement, and drama that shows what our characters are really made of.
The episode started where last week left off, with Young suffocating Telford on the Destiny. It turns into some kind of ploy to disrupt the alien brainwashing technology that was supposedly used on Telford. The scenes are tense and all the actors involved perform admirably, with a notable death performance from Lou Diamond Phillips. Telford's apparent sudden conversion from asshat to good guy adds an extra dimension to the character. I won't be entirely disappointed if this change is permanent, since Telford was so thoroughly unlikable it was over the top at times. We'll have to wait and see if he's truly rehabilitated, though.
