Storyline

Slowly, everyone on Atlantis comes to terms with the sudden re-appearance of Dr. Carson Beckett who, he claims, has been Michael's prisoner for some two years. He tells them what he was doing in Michael's laboratory and they set off to find the kidnapped Teyla. Dr. Keller figures out just how he's come to there at all. Sheppard meanwhile has been using all of his contacts to try and locate Teyla but they come across someone from the past. Teyla in turn has found some of the Athosians alive but they are few in number as a result of Michael's experiments. Michael explains to her just what it is he wants from her as well as his own plans for the future. Written by garykmcd

The return of Carson (yay!)
4 June 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

And the show continues galloping toward the season conclusion. In this penultimate two-parter, a plague is spreading across the galaxy, killing both human and wraith. The source is old hybrid nemesis Michael (Connor Trineer, ENTERPRISE). He kidnaps Teyla, having need of her unborn child who has wraith DNA. In a failed rescue attempt, the crew find...Carson! He has no memories of his death, saying he's been Michael's prisoner for two years. He turns out to be a clone, and without Michael's injections, must go into stasis to have any hope of survival. His first moment on screen brings a rush of relief and joy. Paul McGillion's chemistry and character work were a highlight of the first three seasons. Jewel Staite is a fine replacement, but they've brought her along at such a snail's pace, it hasn't been able to fill the gap. A tip of the hat goes out to recurring actor Christopher Heyerdahl, who puts in top-notch double duty as Todd the wraith and the athosian Halling.
