Storyline

The Atlantis crew are still looking for options for when the Wraith arrive. McKay and Zelenka think a control chair might be useful, but the thing hasn't even been working yet. Sergeant Bates has been investigating a uninhabited planet to use as a possible evacuation site. Meanwhile Teyla hasn't been sleeping much and seems agitated. She's being haunted by terrible nightmares of a Wraith feeding on her and Sheppard. She even imagines she's a Wraith herself. Sheppard arranges a meeting with a psychologist, Kate Heightmeyer, much to her dismay. Heightmeyer tries to dig deeper into Teyla's gift to sense the Wraith, making her decide to go the mainland. She asks an old Athosian woman, Charin, about it. Charin is prepared to tell a secret that Teyla's father wouldn't want her to hear. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Dr. Carson Beckett: My theory is that the Ancients unwittingly allowed humans to evolve on a planet with, uh, insect species on it. At some point the insects fed on humans and somehow incorporated our DNA into theirs. The Wraith are an evolution of that combination.
Lt. Aiden Ford: So what you're saying is the Ancients actually created the Wraith?
Dr. Carson Beckett: By accident.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Or negligence.
