Sanctuary Rant (warning spoilers if you haven’t watched episode 3-Eulogy)

October 24th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I just finished watching the third episode in season 2 of Sanctuary and am totally bummed out.  It looks like Ashley really is dead and that just totally sucks.  I loved her little quips in the show and she was a kick butt character.  I had to go on Google to see if I could find any spoilers that reveal if she would be coming back and the closest thing I could find was this blurb that one of the show runners said Ashley’s fate will be resolved within the first three episodes.  Hence, with the way Eulogy ended it looks like she is gone.

SciFiWire had an article on “Was Ashley Killed Off, Should She Be?” and one point they mentioned as to why it would be ok to kill her off is that it looks like Kate Freelander is now going to be a regular.


This just doesn’t do it for me.  Yes, she has a similar cockiness to her that Ashley had but something about her just rubs me the wrong way.  I am trying to withhold judgment and give her character a chance though so we will see.

To whoever makes these decisions on Sanctuary you need to bring Ashley back!  That was totally lame to get rid of her.

On a side note I was mildly bummed that the invisible girl died too.  Will needs a girl :)

    I watched it too and I wasn’t very impressed. There was so much buildup from last season and through the first episodes and then it was over. And it wasn’t suspenseful just confusing. I didn’t realize the invisible girl was dead too, I must have missed that part. The new girl has an obnoxious character to play so that may be why it’s hard to like her. We’ll see…

    I know, I was totally confused when Magnus kept having those visions of returning something to those dream people or whoever they were. Were those memories? Another reality? Such a let down. Yes, the invisible girl died in I think episode 2.

    I am seriously bummed about Ashley. She was such a great character and I just don’t see the point of killing her off. Yes it adds a strong emotional dynamic to the show but they probably could have figured out another way to have a similar impact. I think the Kate Freelander character could be fun in time but it feels like they are trying to replace Ashley too quickly. I love Sanctuary but I will miss Ashley a lot!

    I was out Friday night and only had time to watch Tivo’ed Stargate, but it seems several characters are now dead, correct? Bummer…

    Angela-I know! Ashely was great. I hope Kate’s character will develop more of a distinction rather than just seeming like an Ashley replacement.
    L. Diane Wolfe-I haven’t watched Friday’s Stargate Universe yet. I have to admit it hasn’t really hooked me yet. I miss John Sheppard :)

    We haven’t watched Friday’s Stargate Universe either. It seems to be missing the humor that SG-1 and Atlantis both had. I mean even when they were in life or death situations on those shows, someone always had a little funny remark but Universe seems to be so much darker and missing that element of humor in hard times. We plan to keep watching for at least a few more episodes but I’m not sure it is going to stay in the permanent TV rotation.

    I agree, the humor isn’t really there. I like the computer game geek guy but still the show isn’t really grabbing my attention.

    I’ve seen some previews and looks like Ashley may not be dead after all…I hope not…I liked her character and that invisible girl rocked…Will totally needs a girl

    I just started watching this show. I found all of the 1st year episodes online and watched them. I really don’t like that they got rid of Ashley. And it was unfortunate that Will’s romance was so short lived. I like him!!!

    I like Will but Henry really has a soft spot for me.

    I hope they didn’t kill off Ashley I liked her…
