Ennemis et amis
Sous le choc de la découverte du sort de Rodney McKay, le colonel Sheppard et son équipe se retirent sur Atlantis pour se regrouper. Avec Rodney non seulement aux mains des Wraiths, mais apparemment à leur service, Atlantis doit faire face à un nouveau danger : leur propre homme, retourné contre eux.
Alors que Zelenka et le colonel Carter travaillent frénétiquement pour craquer les protocoles de sécurité que McKay a intégrés dans le système informatique d'Atlantis, Ronon revisite son passé et découvre que beaucoup de choses ont changé sur Sateda. Pendant ce temps, la reine de la Mort se prépare à utiliser son prisonnier le plus précieux ; avec Rodney qui ignore toujours sa véritable identité, le sort d'Atlantis est en jeu...

Reeling from the shocking discovery of Rodney McKay's fate, Colonel Sheppard and his team retreat to Atlantis to regroup. With Rodney not only in the hands of the Wraith, but apparently working for them, Atlantis faces a new danger - their own man, turned against them.

Meanwhile, Queen Death prepares to make use of her most valuable prisoner; with Rodney still unaware of his true identity, the fate of Atlantis hangs in the balance...

"Put me on citywide," Sheppard said, and waited for Salawi's quick nod before he went on. "This is Colonel Sheppard. Assume that as of now we are facing an attack by unknown hostiles who are trying to get through the Stargate. I want security teams on full alert -"
