Summoned by the Asgard SG-1, lead by General Landry (Beau Bridges) aboard the Odyssey, learn the Asgard have only a short time left to live. Their final attempt to solve their physiological degeneration resulted in each of them developing a rapidly progressing disease leaving them only weeks to live. Fearing their knowledge might fall into the wrong hands they plan to end their lives after handing over their entire knowledge base, technology and history to SG-1. But before all the final advancements can be installed on the Odyssey the Ori drop out of hyperspace and engage the ship. As the Odyssey retreats pursued by one of the Ori ships the Asgard destroy their planet taking the other two Ori ships with them. The Odyssey with shields nearly failing is forced to test their new Asgard weapons and is barely able to destroy the Ori ship in time. The Ori able to constantly track the Odyssey before it has time to repair damage send ship after ship trying to destroy it. The ability to track the Odyssey seems caused by the Asgard technology integrated into its core systems. The team is caught in a conundrum that the very tools that seemed to promise their victory over the Ori might actually spell their defeat. Beaming the rest of the crew to a safe planet, SG-1 tries to find a way disengage the Asgard technology but are drawn into a fire fight before they have the chance to finish. With shield failed and a final blast just off its hull Lt. Col. Carter (Amanda Tapping) is able to trap the ship inside a time dilation field, slowing the blast to appear it’s nearly frozen moving only inches a year. With a seemingly inexhaustible amount of time Carter sets at solving their dilemma or else the team will be forced to live out the rest of their days in the dilation field aboard the Odyssey. watch

Mega Buzz on House, SVU, Reaper, True Blood and More!

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to

I have to wonder if the psych hospital in the House finale was also a hallucination.  It was pretty strange how the street and parking lots were empty.  And it looked like he was going to one of those hospitals from the 1940s. — RSmith
MATT: How Vanilla Sky! But nope, sources assure me that House's rehab stint is the real deal. And that hospital's more retro than you think. Greystone Park State Hospital (in Morristown, N.J.) made its debut in 1876 as the not-so-subtly named New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum. The hospital has tended to such patients as singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie, and until the Pentagon was built, it boasted the largest foundation (674,000 sq. feet) of any structure in the U.S. I'd try to book a Q&A with the building, but fear I'd be stonewalled. 

Now that Reiko Aylesworth has been dropped from ABC's The Forgotten, could SVU bring back her ADA character, Erica Alden, from Season 1? —Walt
MICKEY: It's an interesting idea, but a very well-informed source tells me that Aylesworth will ... read more
