Stargate Atlantis (and SG-1) promo ads: breakdown of scenes

I managed to catch one Stargate SG-1 ad and three (3)(!) Stargate Atlantis ads when I let my VCR just tape away several hours on some pretty gawdawful horror/scifi flicks on Saturday afternoon on SciFi.

Anyway, ads contain a ton of spoilers (especially on SGA as I know which episodes they come from), so check under the cut for the breakdown.

Summary of Stargate SG-1 season 10 (2nd half) ad:

Closeup of Mitchell talking saying "Sometimes belief itself makes all the difference in the world."
THIS APRIL flashes across screen
Closeup of Teal'c in robe
Closeup of Sam with flashlight in dark tunnel
Closeup of Daniel with flaming torch behind him in dark tunnel
Closeup of vala with eyes shut in dark tunnel
Ori ship firing, we hearTeal'c's voice gravely intoning, "The fate of the galaxy is at stake."
Mitchell running inside ship
BIG explosion in space
THE FINAL 10 EPISODES flashes across screen

Narrator says: This April, believe in the gates, one last time. The final 10 episodes, Stargate SG-1, premieres April 13th at 8 on SciFi.

Meanwhile, in watching the ROSE RED marathon today, saw an ad for season 2 SGA DVD set advertising "never before seen footage" so don't know if that outtakes/missing scenes or just the extras they add...
