  6. Seen a lot of this one around; as we wait, I'm starting to think how Perkins is going to tie the previous stories into this one...

  7. The body-swapping notion is clearly hermes outlet intended to cause plot complications in future episodes, but it also sucks out some of the show's inherent drama replica handbags, leaving the Destiny crew far less isolated fendi outlet than they need to be in order for the concept to work. Someone changes places with a surgeon at one point, eliminating a lot of the danger whenever injuries occur. What to say they can't do that with any expert any time they need a hand? The desperation that comes with being trapped far from home feels far more muted as a result, as does the sense of having to make use of limited resources.
