an unfriendly Asgard faction, which was a big surprise! Why did they use those big suits instead of smaller ones? Maybe just as a deception, although it would seem harder for them to manipulate in. Anyway, we finally have a bit of knowledge about how old the Asgard race really is - about a hundred thousand years, which makes them far younger than the Ancients.
Nice to see Daniel again. Even though I prefer the McKay/Carter banter, the McKay and Jackson combo was also good.
It was also nice to see the Travellers again, even though Larrin wasn't there. I did like the new captain and the young engineer!
I thought the Atlantis Stargate was special, but maybe just any Pegasus Stargate put on Atlantis is special.
So after all this, what happens between Atlantis and Todd?
The love triangle seems to be over, unless McKay bumbles it up, which wouldn't surprise me! Poor Ronon, but something had to give.
Overall, a good episode.
