Recap

Sheppard is trying to explain to Ronon the Earth practice of "ice skating" without much luck, when Sam Carter tells him that his father died of a heart attack on Earth. As Sheppard prepares to head back to Earth, Rodney stops by to give his condolences. He'd like to go to Earth with Sheppard but has to go on a mission. Sheppard heads for the gate room to find Ronon who insists on going with his teammate. They arrive at the estate of Sheppard's father where the rich and powerful have gathered for his wake. Ronon heads for the free buffeet while Sheppard chats briefly with his younger brother Dave, who wants to talk more later. Sheppard's ex-wife Nancy also comes over and it's clear their relationship isn't on good terms...

Sheppard: It's not about fighting.
Ronon: Then why's it called Blades of Glory?
Sheppard: It is about skate blading.
Ronon: And this is a real sport? Men and women dancing around on ice?
Sheppard: Unfortunately.
Ronon: Your planet's weird.
Sheppard: You can say that again.

Ronon: So, what do we do now?
Sheppard: Well, mostly people sit around, drink, eat... (looks at Ronon's plate full of food) ...some more than others. But mostly they talk. They don't know what to say, but they talk.

Ronon: Your brother seems to be handling it well
Sheppard: That's what he does, he handles things
Ronon: How come you never mentioned him before?
Sheppard: It's complicated...
(Sheppard sees his ex-wife heading for them)
