Stargate Universe: "Incursion, Part 2" Review Episode 20

SGU Season 1 is done, and it ends with a whimper, not a bang. I really felt the series got off to a great start, but these last few episodes have displayed a gradually declining quality, which makes me concerned about the show's future.

This season finale got of off to a decent start as our trigger happy villainess Kiva shoots a random extra to show she means business, and then tensions run high as Young feels the pressure of having lost one of his men. But most of his ire is just frustration, and impotent rage. The threatening tone that we left with at the end of "Incursion, Part 1" fails to manifest into any meaningful action on Young's part. He yells at people for things outside of their control. Later, Young gets all soft again and brings drinks to his team. Is he the water boy now? Where's that tough guy that was about to kick these people off his ship? The SGU crew still ends up negotiating, and a lot of the leadership action is taken by a somewhat reluctant Camile Wray.

WHAT?!?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!This episode showed me that all that time they spent, from the start, was worth all that hassle. All the time they were building up the characters and not jumping straight into an alien killing spree, was so they could end the season in this manner. I did expect it to end in this manner, i thought it would just continue be the same old "Omg yet another character we have to observe and be board with and wish they would just die so we can get to the good stuff". And now most of them have!! (woohoo!)
This season finale has truly left me wondering what could happen next - the perfect finale in my opinion -:If the SGU team defeat the Alliance, how can the Alliance get back, or will some of the Alliance feel some kind of remorse because help the SGU team?Do they know something about the ship that they dont?How will the rest of SGU survive this?SOOOOOOO MANY QUESTIONS!!!!A BRILLIANT FINALE!
