    Wow another awesome episode! This series is taking the Stargate Franchise to a new level. In this episode we really get a good look at the primary villians of this series, the Wraith. A powerful enemy that challenged even the Ancients, the Wraith are definitely an enemy worth watching out for. I like the dark, vampiric feel of the Wraith, and the actress who played their queen did a great job, instilling fear into the audience, and perhaps more frightening than the Goa'uld or even the Ori. The Wraith have mysterious origins, and I can't wait to see how they are explained further.
