    Very cool, I liked it.

    Was that Wraith that they captured the same as seen in "Rising Part 2"?

    I really REALLY wish the Ep discussion threads would pop up faster... Some of us would like to talk about the ep while it's actually happening.

    Do not like the head of security dude. He's an over-paranoid jerk. Not surprised that the "leaking" of info to the Wraith was inadvertent. Nifty trick, having it be the necklace, which Shep activated. Loved McKay trying to explain that to Mr. Security. hehe.

    Once again, great quoteables from McKay. Loved his scene with Dr. Z (who is definitely Czech). Although if McKay is such a gourmand, what's with liking MREs and hospital food? He was whining about being sent to Siberia because of the food, but MREs he likes? Is Russian food THAT bad??

    Cheers to McKay for questioning leaving people behind, then champing at the bit to go back and get Ford and Teyla.

    And I ask again, why must the doors be SO LOUD??? Sheesh.

    I figured out who that Wraith dude reminds me of- that guy from Kill Bill vol. 2

    The head of security annoyed me, a lot, but i can understand the possible risks, but i don't know, i think he just didn't like Teyla's people.

    I liked the Filipino stick fighting with Teyla and the Wraith dude, fast pace

    I LOVE McKay! God, he was funny in the beginning, and I had to give him props for sticking up for everyone!

    I dunno, though, this ep was good but kinda... "Let's all accuse the alilens because we can!" If they were gonna talk about there being a rat in the colony, I would've like to see one or something similar! Although, I thought it was cool that they worked the necklace into being the actual cause, though.

    I feel so bad for Ford, though. "I thought we agreed you wouldn't name anything anymore."
    Urgo: *Wff!*
    Daniel: Woof?

    Daniel: *muffled* Dis ith da beth pae I'b ever had!

    Jack: And Daniel said he wanted you to go with us to make sure this works?
    Daniel: I didn't say that.
    Nick: Yes!
    Jack: Okay!
    Daniel: Nick! You're taking advantage of me!

    Weir: That's the bright side?
    Daniel: More of a slightly less dark side...

    Good episode, funny how Sheppard activated the necklace. The Wraith still seem too weak for me though, I kept on thinking how could these guys beat the ancients? Security guy almost pissed me of as the religious nut in SG-1 tonight. McKay was great as usual too, funny scene with him and his gun!

    I am new and I guess we do not have to put spoiler lines in this type of thread, If yes I apologize and just pm me and tell me I need to.


    I KNEW IT WAS THE NECKLACE!!!!! LOL

    I really liked this ep. It scares me that they have a wraith now in Atlantis. I really liked the part of the guy forget his name that got hit in the face with the wraith stun weapon.

    Something bugging me, I was SURE the Abadonian people naturaly had the Ancient gene being their desendents and all. But this episode blows that theory away, all though Shepard was just the first one to touch it, Teala may yet have the gene.



    Now I did like the resolution, for one I was afraid it was the odvious answer and it was the Paranoid Sergent. Also it was good for Sheperd to clear up how it was all a mistake in about 2 seconds after discovering the device.

    The wraith are still pathetic, IMO.

    Security Dude is so stereotypical it's amazing that he didn't flatten out into 2-D from the sheer force of his own clichè-ness.

    I want to know why it never occurred to anyone that the leaking of info could be inadvertent. I know it's the first thing I thought of. But maybe I'm just weird.

    I think it was kind of clear that Teyla didn't have the gene, because if it was activated by a touch, then why didn't it activate when Teyla wore it long ago.

    Earth people are suppose to have been the Ancients descendants also... aren't they??? and if so it's been bred out of humans... so maybe it has them too?

    Well it went dorment a while after she droped it, odviously. And that planet didn't have one of the booster things. Or if it does then it doesn't matter as the Wraither were visiting perioticly anyway.


    Unless it was a spesific divice to find Ancients.

    I don't know if its a plot hole, but that whole little necklace activation thing is confusing me.

    Exactly. I'm shocked that someone like Weir didn't think about the possibility of it being by accident. I could see a more military person going that way, hence security guy, but I expect Dr. Weir to be more intelligent.

    LMAO!! Seriously! He was all - "Hm... I need a suspect... I KNOW! I'M GOING TO TAKE THE MOST OBVIOUS CHARACTER THAT WE COULD POSSIBLY EXPECT!"

    Nah, not weird. Probably just more perceptive. I really didn't think it would be something as simple, but I guess I'm a conspiracy theorist. *Shifty eyes*

    Nice episode. The conflict was good, I didn't expect them to catch a Wraith.

    That however brings up a question. If the Wraith guy was so eager to blow himself up, why did he let the threat of death stop him? I would rather they had shot him a second time and it disabled him enough to remove the self-destruct device. I also wonder how much of his "my kind will save me" routine was truthful. If Wraith are rigged to self destruct like that, his kind probably expect him to have blown himself up, not leaving much to rescue. Hopefully the Atlantis team has removed any tracking devices on his person that would allow the Wraith to find them.

    Now we know a few things though. We have an idea of what Wraith tracking technology might look like. We know that bullets drop them for a little bit, electricity does affect them, and stun grenades just kind of bug them. Looking forward to seeing if we learn anything from Atlantis's new pet. Also, McKay has an interesting taste in food.

    Sgt. Security (I forget his actual name) got on my nerves some. He seemed determined to find an Athosian guilty of subterfuge. His close-mindedness probably would have allowed the security leak to go on much longer had a human been the unwilling spy in the ranks.

    Good episode though, better of tonight's two IMO.

    I dunno, I think both eps were equally weak, in their own ways.

    WHY do the Wraith have a self-destruct? If they consider themselves to be the superiorest thing ever, then why should they worry about being captured by the cattle? What could a bunch of cows possibly do to a t-rex? The wraith are nearly unkillable, right? And yet they don't seem to mind killing themselves at the first sign of danger. Strange...

    Security dude actually annoys me even more than Kavanagh. And that's really saying something. At least Dr. K has SOME intelligence kicking around that over-inflated head of his. I doubt the same can be said of Sgt. Security.

    Thumbs up Re: Suspicion (105)

    This is my favorite episode of Atlantis so far. I have been waiting for a good focus on Teyla's character, as she is the only one I still didn't feel like I knew.

    There were many good, strong, subtle themes being explored, including the nature of trust and the burden of leadership. Both Teyla and Weir were in tough, complicated situations: trying to do the right thing and the safest thing. I'm particularly fond of their mutual acknowledgement at the end.

    I'm also a sucker for inspirational speech scenes, so I loved what Teyla said to her people about her hope in Atlantis. She instantly notched up in my favorite character ranks with that little stint.

    In addition to all this, we got a glimpse into the ongoing day-to-day discoveries in Atlantis (the sunroof bit and the discovery of the mainland), developing friendship between Sheppard and each individual member of his team, a cool twist concerning the necklace (I have to confess I didn't see it coming-- especially not the tie-in with Major Sheppard having activated it), and lots of good humorous one-liners worthy of the Stargate name.

    Seargeant Bates was an aggravating antagonist. I hope we don't see too much of him, or if we do he's grown as a person.

    And to conclude, Dr. Weir is on a roll: Straight hair, curly hair, straight hair, curly hair. I wonder how long she can keep it up.

    Four stars from me!!!
