The episode continues from "The Storm" where we were left with Mckay and Weir getting plastered by the freezing rain and Sheppard making his way back to the generator to provide power for Mckay to repair the grounding station to save Atlantis. In this ep. we get Carson, Teyla, and Ford to join the mix. They fly a puddlejumper from the mainland, picking up some more athosians, over the storm and trying to provide assistance for Sheppard. There are some funny moments with Carson and Ford. Ford has a little power drive in part of this episode as he keeps telling Carson to in essense "Shut Up" so they get back to Atlantis and help Sheppard. Great references to Dr. McCoy from star trek with beckett, as Carson doesnt want to fly the jumper through a hurricane. When they get back to the city, they 3 eventually meet up with Sheppard, but split up again, as Ford and Sheppard go to the gateroom and Carson and Teyla go through the storage back to the gateroom. Teyla and Carson meet up Sora though, who knocks Carson out cold with one punch. Teyla and Sora fight it out, Teyla wins hands down, and Sora realizes how wrong she was. They all eventually meet up in the Gateroom with Rodney and Elizabeth being forced to go through the gate as Kolya orders a retreat, but sheppard shots him in the shoulder and Kolya falls throught the gate. Rodney runs back to the controls and activates the program to store the lightening and saves the city.
Again, amazing special effects for when it came out, the story had lots of high notes with action and suspense. Worth watching!
