Recap: Stargate Universe S2 E5 "Cloverdale"
"You nearly got yourself killed the day before your wedding!"Bus coming to small town Cloverdale. It's lieutenant Scott comes home with his buddy Greer. Across the street we see Young and Eli, Scott runs toward them and gets hit by a car. Was it a flashback? flashforward maybe? Alternate universe? No, he's actually lying on the ground in a forest on a alien planet, and gross blue stuff grows of his arm.
— Imaginary Young
- Adventures in Comaland
- Body Horror: Blue spores grows on you, causing you to suffer and hallucinate and who know how big it can be. It consumed poor Scott's arm in a matter of hours.
- Hold the Line
- Internal Reveal: Chloe is still infected
- Kill It with Fire: Greer's improvised flamethrowers came handy
- Mundanization: Scott's hallucinations.
- Nothing Is Scarier: It took half of the episode before Monster of the Week appear
- Rule of Symbolism: Juxtaposition of imaginary wedding and real world blood transfusion certainly symbolize something.
- Ship Sinking: Eli as Chloe's brother was used to ram home to the audience that Eli and Chloe have transitioned from Just Friends to Like Brother and Sister and are intended to be viewed as such by the audience.
