Storyline

Having been told by the Genii spy on New Athos that her people were still alive, Teyla asks permission to visit a man named Davos who is a legendary seer and may be able to help her. When they arrive, Dr. Keller realizes that the man is dying. His ability to see the future is real, but the snippets of the future he is able to show them are open to interpretation. John is called back to Atlantis when they receive a message from the Wraith whose life he had previously saved. He offers to work with McKay to fix the nano virus that is now malfunctioning. As if this weren't enough happening, Richard Woolsey arrives from Earth to undertake Samantha Carter's 3 month evaluation. Written by garykmcd

This is a really great episode with very little time to get bored. It develops several good plot lines and contributes a lot to this season's main arc. There's even a huge space fight, for crying out loud! Teyla's continued search for her people is really but a pretext, but we get confirmation that she is pregnant, which raises the usual interrogation (who????) and should change things in the team.

Also, my wish to see "Sheppard's Wraith friend" (aka Todd) once again is fulfilled, at the same time that we finally get some feedback on Rodney's tampering with the Replicators. Once again, it turns out that Atlantis's good intentions backfired, and instead of solving a problem they actually made things worse. Oh, the irony. (And I will get to say that again, I'm afraid; still, it is frustrating to think that we lost Elizabeth for that). So the Wraiths and Atlantis have to work together, which is entertaining considering how little trust there is on both sides. Still, everybody is surprisingly reasonable about this, for once. This finally gives Carter the opportunity to show her mettle, especially since Woolsey is once again meddling in Stargate's affairs. Well, it's what he does; but we have long since understood that he would never be a real threat to anybody, so he's only here as a foil to Carter.

The plot dealing with the Seer is also quite interesting. I like it that for once a human's "powers" are the genuine thing --but as usual, they end up complicating things instead of simplifying them, as everybody starts hesitating and second-guessing themselves. The episode raises a few philosophical questions here, but fortunately doesn't try to answer them, instead focusing on how the *characters* deal with getting glimpses of the future and not knowing how to avoid it. But the great thing about this episode is that, even though its particular plot lines are neatly tied up at the end, the major questions are left pending, slowly growing into a full-fledged arc. And the funny thing: despite all those predictions, you will still be surprised when they come true!
