  • After a series of run-ins with the Wraith, the team begins to suspect their Athosian allies of having a spy in their midst.

    The Atlantis base receives an intense radio transmission from Major Sheppard's team: they are fleeing from the Wraith back through the gate. Dr. Elizabeth Weir orders the shield protecting the Stargate to be lowered to allow the team safely through, and the gate room is riddled with energy blasts from Wraith weapons. The team comes through, but Dr. McKay is struck by one of the blasts before the shield can be raised again.In the infirmary, Dr. Beckett tells McKay that he's going to be alright. The Wraith energy weapons are designed to immobilize their pray, not to kill targets. McKay will suffer some paralyses and is unable to talk, but the effects will wear off. Meanwhile, Weir confronts Sheppard with a suggestion that is now inescapable: His team has met the Wraith on five of their last nine missions. It's clear that they have a spy in their midst.
