  • Interesting episode for several reasons: the threat posed by the Replicators has evolved to become much more acute and poignant, orders and responsibilities come into sharp conflict for the team, and Elizabeth gives stellar performance as a flirt.

    This enjoyable episode blends nice examples of suspense, humor, and action into one story.

    Replicators coming to Atlantis - which is now under the Ancestors control poses no threat. Or does it? Team being told to stand down on any rescue of the former SG-1 leader is a very clear order. Or is it? Elizabeth flirting with a book-wormish scientist seems implausible for so many reasons. Yet she pulls it off with admirable aplomb. The pleasure in her smile when her ploy works is so meaningful. Much more so than the subject of her interest realizes.

    Nice start to a two-part episode.
