    You have no idea how much I wish I had info like that. KRAD would probably kill me, though. I know he had a movie called The Rainbow Tribe that was slated to hit a family film festival this week, but beyond that, I got nothing.

    he could come back reconpixulated and Greg Germaine can have the part back. Shit like that worked fine on LEXX.

    For some reason I laughed my ass off when they said Dr Blake and Dr Stark are getting married because I thought Thor and Iron Man were getting hitched.

    Also I have a feeling his sister will be used to replace Starks' antagonism.

    Let me just get this off my chest after reading that blog entry:

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!! :scream::scream::scream::scream::scream::scream::scream::scream::scream:



    There, all better. Damn I hope the reasoning of some of you guys here is correct and he'll be like Daniel Jackson and pop back in. I'll still watch the show but gods damn it, I'll miss him like hell! Hope Ed Quinn goes on to do more great work though, whatever he acts in.

    Thus we see why there is no real death in sci-fi. Fans won't allow it and get all angry when it happens. They just hate change to no end.

    I don't hate change, I love it, moves things along. It's just that I loved the character and while I really hate to see him go, I think it was a good death. If he doesn't come back, that will be that.

    I'm not holding my breath waiting for Ed Quinn to come back. They are moving on without him. Did I miss something in the blog where they said they expected Stark to make a return? I wouldn't mind, but the fact they killed him off was brave and unique for recent SF.

    He was asking for confirmation that Stark said his "ego is as big as this building" the day before he died. Why he was asking that, on the other hand, I don't know. *shrug*

    The sci-fi channel website might have posted the full episode.

    "Does your ego even fit in this building?"

    The time stamp is 22.20.

    ^ I believe there's a second reference to Stark's ego (he says it himself).

    No, really? :rolleyes:

    In any case...

    Actually, wrong on both counts.

    Carter didn't even see Stark the loop before Stark died. Besides which, the last time Carter saw Stark, it was Carter who made the "ego big as building" comment.

    The order was:

    -Carter saw Stark, made comment, went to find Leo. Leo lied, Carter went to find Eva at her radiation filled treehouse

    *Loop*

    -Stark figures out, goes to Leo who explains, tries, fails

    *Loop*

    -Carter convinces, Stark believes, dies.

    So the comment was made second to last loop, and it was Carter, not Stark who made it.

    However, the question remains, how did Stark "remember" the comment?

    I said out, dammit!
    Maybe Stark was hinting that he uploaded his personality into the mainframe, or some preserved himself in some other way?

    I'm sure we'll find that out right about the time Carter and Ali have their first guilt-free intimate moment. :lol:
