    A really great episode that marks an amazing return for Koyla and leads to some very interesting insight about the Wraith. This season is definately the best yet.

    10/10 from me!

    Thank god for finally letting them not scrw anyone over. And they had two chances and managed to make the right choice in both.

    Nice episode.

    Great episode

    The wraith are getting less and less evil it seems. This was a great week for the gates, two amazing episodes. Laden looked weird without his gotee.


    I wonder what other secrets the wraith have in store.

    Very good episode! But they played the Unas-Daniel music. But it was sort of appropiate.

    I agree! I think this episode was wonderful. I always love it when the Genii show up. They are some of my favorite...bad guys?...quasi bad guys?...semi quasi bad guys?...I dunno. I like em though! And I love the fact that we got to have some insight into the Wraith, and that they do have some sort of heart, I guess you could say.

    I think there is only one word to describe this episode. Awesome!

    Spoiler:
    To find out the wraith could give life...I had a hunch, but man, when he actually did it...WOW!


    I have to admit, I stood up and started clapping so hard I bruised my hands when the credits rolled.

    10 out of 10 for sure! Well, maybe 9.5...you never know, something could be better. But right now, I'm thinking that was one of the best episodes ever.

    Good episode... loved the Genii, always love the wraith, but the ending seemed a bit like a copout to me, I'm not sure why. I mean, I know it would have been worse if Dr. Beckett miraculously turned Sheppard young again, but the wraith restoring life seems like the zat gun with the third shot disinigrates. But is that like the wraith throwing up?

    My favorite Atlantis episode ever! I mean it was compelling and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I always like stories where you get to understand your enemy. I called the Wraith giving back life, i mean at first i thought it would be something extremely predictable like Becket finding a cure. But i think the wraith giving back life was just cooler. It was nice to see some emotion from the cast too. A great episode.

    Agreed! This was a great ep and I loved the Shep, Wraith thing. Koyla at his finest. Great ep! 10/10!

    I LOVED IT!

    Okay, I'm a big Shep whump fan but I liked it overall for plotting, characterization, etc., and thankfully the ilnteresting new skill the wraith demonstrated, otherwise we'd be Shep-less.

    Chris Hyerdahl was great as the Wraith; imparted a nice desperate quality of a trapped being who saw no hope of escape until Shep came along.

    Now, the 'brother' thing was pretty creepy but well, this is another galaxy and Shep's deal did save his life.

    Definitely want a follow-up to this one, and the next time Shep sees Kolya, I want to just see him try to kill him right off the bat. He deserves the right to after what Kolya did, which was despicable by any society's standards.

    Kudos to Ken on his first SGA script!

    Tonight episode was good but I don't think it's the best. So far PROGENY is the best of the season. There are many episodes yet to come so I'll keep an open mind.
    May the force be with you

    I thought the exact same thing. That's kinda gross...but I guess being thrown up on by a wraith is better than dying?
