  • a rarely seen type of episode but is one of my favorites. *spoilers*

    The team is ambushed by the Genii offworld when they are summonded to the planet with a code given to the genii alliance.
    Col Shepherd is captured by Kolya and imprisoned in a cell next to another prisoner who has been there for so long he cant remember.
    At the same time Laiden comes to atlantis to explain his codes were stolen. during his stay kolya dials in with shepher tied and gagged to a chair behind him in view of the camera. He demands laiden in exchange for col shepherd.

    Dr Weir responds that they do not negotiate with terorists. 2 guads then bring out a starving wraith and approach shepherd and to Atlantis's horror release him onto the colonel. This scene is very moving as you can see john in pain and hear atlantis's outrage.

    Shepherd decides that his best chance of survival is to escape, and tries several times before he realises the wraith has been there long enough to know his way around. but is unwilling to help.

    This is a very emotionaly charged episode and one of my favorites as it proves that even the hero of the story, is human after all.
