    Although it was obvious what was going on after about 5 minutes, it was still fun to watch it unfold. I wish I had recognized the "bad guy" from the earlier episode during the "nightmare" clips, but I couldn't place him.

    Abby is a very annoying character, but it worked FOR this episode. :)

    I'm still trying to understand why they kept waking up. Were they throwing off the toxin more and more? What would have happened if they had accidentally died in the altered state? Would they have awakened as they did when they committed suicide?

    And how did the "toxin" adjust the altered state to "keep them in it"? It sounded like Abby's fainting spell and John's appearance were "induced" by them trying to figure everything out, just like Abby and John appeared at the car as Will and Magnus were heading out to kill themselves.

    I watch it from time to time but it seems like the show just got completely redone from season 1 which is what brought me in, I accepted Magnus' daughter getting killed off, but I dunno, it just seems to me they went in a whole new direction with the show, like a small example, I thought Magnus was *the* head of Sanctuary, but guess not :p ... and alot of other little things here and there just made me eventually cancel my sp >.>

    I think I watched once or twice after the daughter got killed off, but it just didn't hold my interest.

    Yes, they definitely did retool the show from the beginning season, or half a season, until it bears almost no resemblance to what it looks like today. It is still mildly entertaining though, at least to me.

    I guessed wrong abou this episode. I assumed it was some bad guys setting up this drug-induced alternate reality world to get some information out of them. The show had a better explanation than mine.

    Why is Emilie Ullerup still showing in the descriptions when she has been gone for more then a season and a half? She was in 20 of the 46 (or so) episodes. Is this just a glitch?

    I do like how they've mixed things up, with some multi-part story arcs and then some one-off episodes. And even some of the one-offs (like this one) relate to a story arc.

    The characters seemed to have "permanent amnesia", so I would think trying to get information from them would be fruitless. I thought it was bad guys holding them hostage in the drugged-up reality, but we saw nothing of any other characters as in the kidnap-Will-to-do-surgery episode.

    Contractual obligation? Or probly just a Syfy-doesn't-update-their-listings-so-we'll-use-what-we-had-last-year thing.

    It's not unusual for people to stay in the generic Guide Data series cast listings after they've left a show, sometimes for years.

    For a long time I kept thinking that she was somehow going to show up again in each episode. It took me quite a while to realize that this was not the case, and to disregard her name in the description.

    They said Will and Helen kept coming out before their brain scans were clean. They instinctively knew something was wrong, but kept surfacing before the toxin had run its course. Abby and John were clearly constructs of their "blissed out" state.
