Storyline

Sheppard and his team visit a planet but Ronon feels that he's been there before. In his days as a runner, the Wraith had hunted him there, causing much destruction and resulting in the death of the local leader's daughter. They haven't forgotten and soon have the entire team in captivity. Turned over to the Wraith, Ronon is once again forced into being a runner and they return him to his home planet of Sateda. In flashbacks, key events in Ronon's previous life are revealed. Needless, his friends don't just sit by idly but head to Sateda to help him. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Under sedation after being wounded in the posterior, McKay incoherently babbles about "All the Pretty Horses". "All the Pretty Horses" is a novel where the protagonist too gets wounded in a similar location on his body. See more »

Goofs

During the flashbacks to eight years into Ronon's past, he repeatedly refers to the stargate as "the gate". This does not concur with the fact that when Ronon first meets the Atlantis team (s02e03 - Runner), he claims that he only ever knew of it as "the ring of the ancestors". See more »

Quotes

Dr. Rodney McKay: Excuse me? Why am I lying here?
Dr. Carson Beckett: You have an arrow, Rodney, in your gluteus maximus.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh. Well, that sounds painful.
[sighs]
Dr. Rodney McKay: Gluteus maximus... Glootus... maa... ximus. Oh, my God. That's my ass, isn't it?
Dr. Carson Beckett: Aye.

Excellent storytelling, direction, post-production
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, this episode is one of the best of the Stargate Universe. Robert Cooper outdid himself. The story itself is not too unusual: hero goes back to devastated home, has it out with long-time nemesis. However, the layout of the story was really well done, particularly once at Sateda. The presentation of the Sateda story was breathtaking, with excellent direction and photography as well as film editing. The humorous interaction between Rodney and Carson was just the right touch.

One note. Had I been editing for story, I would have had Ronon grab his wife(?) in a desperate bear hug at the end of their first scene, not just grab her hand. That would have presented a nice bookend to Ronon's hug of Carson (obviously a friendly not loving or desperate hug), and given a bit more strength to the story point that he once again was neither alone nor shut off emotionally. Just my thoughts.
