Default Side Notes From The Character's Creator

"To me, Garner is Sam a generation too early. He was just as smart, just as creative, but the technology wasn't there to support his ideas completely. In turn, as I included him in more stories after his introduction in "Guinea Pig" (Season 10), he seemed to evolve into a mentor character for Sam; a kindred spirit that understood the science that allowed Sam to travel into the past and see him. It also became a positive outlet for Sam that he was not alone; that somebody knew him for what he was and understood him. In a way, he could be viewed as a father figure for someone who lost his own father.

Garner may have died in 2003 in an effort to help Sam foil a plot involving terrorists, but the beauty of time travel means that he might yet turn up again in the past."
