  • Rodney's worst nightmare comes true as Jeannie Miller comes back to say a final goodbye to her brother.

    The Shrine brings out the the absolute best on every single character of Atlantis as they gather around McKay's last days on earth; unlike "Tao" this time caused by a parasite that literally dimishes his mental capacity until there's nothing left of him. Keller watches helplessly how McKay reverts to a child-like state waiting for a sister he may not even recognize while flashacks document the progess of the dissease as the Atlantis team refuses to let go but once is obvious that is already too late and Jeannie will never have the chance each of them had to say goodbye, Rodney is brought to the shrine: where he'll get one last day with his family just the way he was only to die the next morning.

    However, once there Keller comes up with a last minute solution - using the shrine's radiation - for her to extract the now diminished parasite and for Ronon to kill it thus saving McKay's life. As Jeannie takes a moment with the brother she has always known Keller takes another moment to watch the tape of a Rodney she may've seen for the very first time.
