The CW’s new limited-event TV series CONTAINMENT is a chilling and hair-raising look at what would happen if a highly communicable and deadly virus broke out on U.S. soil in one of its major cities. It examines who would be at risk? What lives would be destroyed within seconds, hours and days? And could it truly be contained? In an exclusive interview, star Claudia Black talks about the challenges that would be faced, the tricky alliances that would be made and if it is even realistic that people would do the right thing when faced with the terror and uncertainty
Great news for fans of Claudia Black from her time on Farscape, Pitch Black and Stargate and many other shows as it’s reported she will be taking up a recurring role during the current season of the CW show “The Originals” playing the character Black Dahlia.

General Hammond takes command of the Prometheus on a mission to Pegasus to discover the fate of the Atlantis expedition who have now been out of contact far longer than they would have preferred. Hammond overrides Jack’s objections and takes Daniel and Walter on the mission and before they even leave the Milky Way galaxy they find two damaged Gouald ships. It is of course a trap and the Prometheus is taken over by a single Kull warrior with the crew stranded on the damaged ships as the Prometheus with Daniel on board flies away. The mystery is revealed when the warrior turns out to be a young woman named Vala Mal Doran who is stealing the ship to help her people but a now imprisoned Daniel soon learns that Vala says a lot of things that are not entirely true. Prometheus Unbound is a wonderful episode, it was initially designed as a bottle show to save some money using a small cast and the standing sets but the production was getting such good results extra money was provided to create the CGI which really added the icing to the story. The introduction of Vala and the casting of Claudia Black was inspired even if she had just been a one off character but we know she returns to work her wicked ways on Daniel and later to grace the SGC.
Once again it was great to see Don S. Davis return as Hammond and yes again as a guest star he seems to be getting better roles which allows him to push his character, great chemistry as always. Huge praise to Claudia who only worked on the episode for three days (flew from Australia) who grabbed the role and made it her own including adding her own little touches and while Novak ( Ellie Harvie ) seemed a strange role it all worked out ok.
