Male Wraith


Michael Kenmore, a new lieutenant, awakes in the infirmary and doesn't remember a thing. Only the words Wraith and Atlantis have some meaning to him. He is told he was part of Sheppard's team and was captured by the Wraith, who did something to him. There is something weird about Kenmore however. The crew seems overly concerned about his well-being and he is monitored at all times. It seems like he's the most important thing Atlantis has to deal with at the moment. The crew's talks to him don't look spontaneous and Ronon seems to absolute despise him. At night Kenmore has terrible dreams about the Wraith and from the reactions of the crew soon gets the feeling there's something different about him. He tries to find out what it is.

Great Episode
21 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

{Contains Spoilers} This is a fantastic stand alone episode of Atlantis. The episodes focus is almost entirely on Michael and this is what elevates it above much of the rest of season 2. The actor does a really convincing job and it is very easy to get swept into his story. The normal characters becoming the antagonists makes this a unique episode, very cleverly done. It lays the foundations for the end of season finale and the Wraith returning to Atlantis.

The downside to this episode is how it fits in with the general ethos of the show. The Atlantis crew (for want of a better word) have a moral ambiguity here, they will do anything to defeat the Wraith. In other episodes they have a strict moral code they tend to boast about. Here that is all forgotten about and it makes Elizabeth Weir look like a complete hypocrite (not for the first or last time but this is perhaps the biggest example). Also it is very out of Dr Carson Beckett's character for him to have done this. They also seem to have rather assumed the success of this venture, otherwise why have Michael on Atlantis?
