Darker! Grittier! Awesomer!!!
The first season ended on a hell of a cliffie and I think we all know that he’s about to lose his kid at some point in the upcoming episode, if that last shot of TJ is anything to go by. After all that Young has lost already, and especially given how hard he’s taken the losses so far, the loss of his child on top of it all? Brutal. I freely admit that I’m going to be crying come September when the series starts up again.
From Alpha Airlock:
Who would’ve thought “Stargate: Universe” could get any darker?
Removing the fuzzy light-hearted overtures of “Stargate SG-1,” “Universe” feels like the Stargate franchise has grown up a bit and provides a very stark contrast on the consequences of one’s actions. And everything has consequences, as fans will learn when the second season airs in the fall.
Col. Everett Young, played by Louis Ferreira, in particular is in for a hard time.
“After everything he’s been through – and it gets worse for him initially at the beginning of Season 2 – it’s impossible to imagine that a person wouldn’t go to a very dark place at least for a short period of time,” outgoing executive producer Robert C. Cooper told SFX magazine.
