Episode cast overview, first billed only:
David MacInnis ...


Apparently able to reprogram their base code, the Replicators have attacked and defeated the Ancients who had only recently taken over control of the city. General O'Neil and Richard Woolsey had stayed behind to negotiate with the Ancients and are hiding out in a remote part of the city. It doesn't really matter however since O'Neil's standing orders are that Atlantis is to be destroyed with a nuclear device should it ever be taken over by hostile forces. Sheppard, Weir, McKay and Beckett collect Teyla and Ronon Dex en route and devise a plan to surreptitiously enter the city and rescue their colleagues. If they are to be successful McKay will also have to find a way to destroy the Replicators before they reprogram themselves and make their weapons useless. Written by garykmcd

When General O'Neill has to release the dead mans switch to drain the water from the Jumper bay, the third time he swims down, as he approaches the console he pushes on the switch, the camera closes in tight and he has yet to reach the console. While he may have let go and swam around, the switch was a slow release, so it should have still been pushed forward. See more »


Major General Jack O'Neill: Please, don't be offended as I express my surprise that Landry would send you on a mission like this.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, sir, General Landry didn't sanction this mission.
Major General Jack O'Neill: So, am I to assume you are not surrounded by heavily armed SG teams and young strapping marines?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You've got Colonel Sheppard, Ronon, Teyla, McKay, myself and Dr Beckett.
Major General Jack O'Neill: Ooh! Dr Beckett, is it? Well, I'm comforted.
Dr. Carson Beckett: What's that supposed to mean?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We've got a plan, sir. A good one.
Major General Jack O'Neill: Yes, Colonel, I'm sure you do. But in the unlikely event you ...

Best episode EVER!
16 December 2007 | by (Earth, Solar system) – See all my reviews

This episode, together with part 1, of course, must count as the best episode ever! It's a roller-coaster ride of good writing. I was surprised a couple of times with the way the story was going. At the end, you think: Whoa! What just happened!!? To have managed this in 80 minutes, it's simply outstanding! I am looking forward to more from these writers, keep em coming! Also the acting is good.

Especially McKays ruse was brilliant, they've used his annoying personality against us, the suspicious viewers. You're thinking like, "How can he be this stupid!!!?" That was really bad for the old ticker!

Great flying sequence with the Puddle Jumper between the city, we should see more of those.
