  • Sheppard is captured by the Genii and befriending a Wraith is is only hope of escape

    Col. Sheppard and team are on a planet and ambushed by an unknown force. On their way to running back to the gate, Sheppard is capture by none other then the genii commandar Kolya.

    Sheppard is the main focus of this episode as he is held hostage by Kolya. Kolya tries to use Sheppard as a bargaining chip to get Laden (new leader of the Genii). Kolya want to kill Laden and take his "rightfull" place as leader of the Genii people. When Atlantis doesn't sucome to Kolya's demands, he bring out the prisoner that was beside Sheppards cell..a wraith. All of Atlantis is shocked that Kolya is feeding Sheppard to a Wraith and they have to slowly watch him die repeatedly.
    Throughout the episode, Sheppard and the Wraith develop a mutal friendship of a sorts as they try to escape the compound. During this time, we get an insight into the wraith themselves and learn that they can not only take life, but also give it back.
