The Perfect Flip Flop Storm

...The concept for the monster/enemy in "The Seed" came from Robert C. Cooper. I won't explain too much about the episode for those readers that prefer to see it fresh and unspoiled, but I will tell you that it's a nice expansion of Wraith lore, and most importantly it gave Mark Savela and our crack VFX team lots to do. In this one, the monster is made up of real prosthetics as well as VFX, and the transition between them had to be seemless. This "matching" is not easy to do. But Mark Savela and his team are amazing, as evidenced by their recent Emmy nomination. Congrats guys! (and girls!).

So that should whet your appetite. Oh, and as for the Beckett situation, I guess you'll just have to watch tonight.
