I watched Millennium from the beginning, and while I wasn't allowed to watch all episodes (having only been 9 years old when the series started) I did see much of it and was always drawn in by the intensity and depth of the show and its characters. I have continued to watch as an adult since the DVDs have become available, and was able to catch up on what I had missed as a child (and by extension finally understood why there were episodes I wasn't allowed to watch, which is fairly obvious to an adult, but to a child is a constant source of vexation) and finally came to terms with my unwavering childhood fear of what I could only call a demon known as Lucy Butler. I used to have nightmares about her and even thought that in the dark I could see her cold eyes staring at me from out of that frozen mask of a face. When I first saw Sarah-Jane Redmond on the film "A Wrinkle in Time", I thought she looked familiar, but not quite making the connection. Then she cocked her head a certain way and I almost screamed aloud (I was a teenager at the time, but apparently still haunted, it seems) because it was Lucy Butler for a moment! LOL. Then she turned her head another way, and she was just an actress playing a different character. Since then, I've always been fascinated by how good of an actor Sarah-Jane Redmond is, and the diverse types of roles she can play. Anyhow, I always thought that at the end of the episode "Saturn Dreaming of Mercury", the feminine voice that Lucas used, not to mention the face seen during the distortion of his head in the fire, belonged to Lucy Butler. It wasn't clear (although you could say the long black hair was a dead giveaway) but I couldn't shake that feeling. Then, the other day, when I was watching the 3rd season over again and I got to "Saturn Dreaming of Mercury", I decided to look up Lucy Butler in the Character Profiles here on the site, and she was listed as being featured in the episode, so it was gratifying to know that if there's something I'm uncertain of, this site is here to provide the answers, especially since there really aren't any other online resources (at least that I know of) to answer questions of this kind. I think it's wonderful that this site and community is here. :) One of the questions I still have, I think that we all have, is whatever happened to "Divina", the little girl that seemed to somehow be Lucy Butler's dead child? Was she merely a projection, like Lucas Sanderson? Anyway, I'm very glad to be part of TIWWA, and intend to post more questions and comments about the series as I have them. :)
I've attempted twice to list this item on eBay, but no bids. I picked this up off of eBay shortly after the series went off the air, and I do believe its genuine. I've been in the process of clearing out my stuff, and I'd really like to see it go to someone who would appreciate it, so I am looking to just give it away. Let me know if you are interested. I hope this sort of message is allowed here on the forums. If not, I do sincerely, apologize. Cheers, RSG
A few years back i took a stab at the meaning behind the title of Saturn Dreaming of Mercury. This post was originally posted by Ravenwolf as a question on the reason on the title. Since there isnt much movement on this thread anymore i decided to dig it up due to having such a huge wave of new members around. Well here was my post of the meaning a little over a year ago: Dont know the meaning of the title but i will try to take a stab at it. Since this episode is mainly about Jordan, she represents Mercury. Like Mercury she is small, sure footed and fast. Saturn represents Lucy and her minions including Lucas. Saturn the planet is huge and cold, a big gas ball. It is also the 9th planet away from the sun. I tend to think the Sun represents GOD. Mercury is closer to GOD. Saturn is envious of Mercury. Always thinking of Mercury. Saturn dreams of Mercury. Conclusion: Evil concentrates on those that expose them. Frank and Jordan are the ones that has that ability. They are Mercury i wonder how you all interpet the episode, please join in.
