'Enemy At the Gate,' 'Vegas' stories revealed!

We've finally gotten our hands on firm details about the series finale of Stargate Atlantis, "Enemy At the Gate," as well as new details on the penultimate episode, "Vegas."

While we do know the basic framework for episode 19, the story behind the final episode has remained a mystery until now. Last week, TV Guide reported the first bit of news -- that "a rogue Wraith leads an invasion of Earth..."

Episode Guide

A brief excerpt from the Production section of the Episode Guide:
"Guest star Dawn Olivieri is, to use Costume Designer Val Halverson's words, 'a hoot!' The native Floridian and former Deal or No Deal Model #14 is possessed of a quick wit and sharp tongue. Oh, and she also happens to be doing a kick-ass job as 'Identity's' Neeva. Don't mess with Dawn! A couple of our actors learned the hard way."

Stargate Atlantis - GateWorld: Kate Hewlett Audio Interview

At GateWorld:


GateWorld talks with Kate Hewlett

It is hard to believe that Kate Hewlett has only appeared in four episodes of Stargate Atlantis. One of those shows was for a single "blink and you'll miss me" scene. It's equally hard for us to believe that it's been over a year since we last spoke!

GateWorld is happy to correct this oversight in this interview with the actress, in which we reflect on the journey of Jean Miller. We also discuss where Kate would have liked Jeannie to have gone had Atlantis continued to a sixth season, and updates us on all of her current projects, from Humans Anonymous to singing and movies.

After the interview, be sure to pay a visit to Kate's personal blog!

GateWorld's interview with Kate runs over 35 minutes. Listen online at your leisure, download it to your MP3 player, or subscribe to our iTunes podcast. The full interview is also transcribed [at the link above]!

A brief excerpt:

GW: What were some of your first thoughts when you received the script for "The Shrine?" I think that that was your best acting that you have ever done. It was such a powerful script and there were some powerful scenes in that that just had me in tears.

What were your first thoughts? "Oh my gosh, I'm going to have to break down in this scene. How am I going to do that?" Or "I'm going to have to get through that scene." What went through your mind?
KH: I think the first thing that happened was David sent me an email saying "You've got your work cut out for you" or something. And then he said that there was some intense acting to be done. And then I read the script and I was in tears pretty much from top to bottom from page one till the end.

I wasn't that scared, actually. When it's a good script, and obviously the other ones were great scripts as well. But this one in particular had great comedy in it. But it was a really great script, and that makes it easier to act well.

The Great Rodney McKay Says Goodbye to Stargate Atlantis

By Meredith Woerner, 2:55 PM on Fri Dec 12 200

What will we do without our weekly McKay fix? Stargate Atlantis' David Hewlett told us about ending the 5 year series, his new projects, and how to tie your shoes in front of an astrophysicist.

I'm exceedingly excited that I got to talk to the David Hewlett about the end of the 5 year run at Stargate Atlantis and hear what it's like working with real scientists on the amazing SGA episode "Brain Storm." He also spilled it about kissing Jewel Staite and what's in store for his future. We're quite curious about his project Star Crossed which is a behind the scenes comedy about working at a scifi show. Hmm I wonder where he got that idea?

... What was it like filming the last few episodes? Will we end SGA with a big bang?
DH: It was miserable! It was absolutely miserable. There's nothing worse, we find out that we weren't coming back I guess a couple, a few weeks before the end, and it just makes it painful. You're in this weird situation where you know that it's over, and you're acting your little heart out like usual, cuz you're used to having to keep going, but there's a part of me that's like, I want to go now. Like if it's over you don't want to be hanging around, you want to rip the band-aid off and move on type thing, so you're desperate to go away and do something else, and at the same time you're dreading it being over and stuff. I just can't imagine what it must have been like for SG1 after having been on for ten years. Everyone was really sort of upset about it.

... What can we look forward to in the finale? How did you guys really try to make it extra special does it wrap up the 5 years of work on SGA?
DH: There's an extra special ending. Yeah again it was so weird too, I can't help thinking there's nothing you can do in one episode that's gonna sum up five years. I hope if anything out of this, I hope it sets up further adventures for Atlantis. I think what's nice about the episode is there's enough unanswered stuff there. There are still things that need to be dealt with that I hope there will be more Atlantis for people to see, in cheaper formats, TV movies or DVD movies or whatever they want to do. But I do hope that’s something we can look forward to
