Ronon is kidnapped by a Wraith who has every intention of turning him into a warrior for the Wraith cause. He has had considerable success in using drugs and torture to brainwash others. One of them, Tyre, is discarded by the Wraith when they think he is no longer of use to them. Tyre is rescued and taken back to Atlantis for painful detoxification and he agrees to lead them back to rescue Ronan. Teyla meanwhile is struggling with her own competing loyalties as she must decide whether to remain a member of Sheppard's team or concentrate on being a mother to her newborn child.

Did You Know?


Rodney claims Archemides discovered the laws of buoyancy while in the bath because a hot, relaxing bath helps you think. Archimedes realized you could measure the volume of a complex object by immersing the object in water and then measuring the change in volume of the water. The idea came to him while he was immersing himself in the bath and saw the water rise in the tub. Then he yelled "Eureka" and ran naked and wet down the street. See more »
