Sheppard and his team visit Beckett, who is providing medical assistance to a village. He explains that some of the Balarans, who Michael tested the Hoffan drug on, fled their planet and were taken in by the villagers. The Hoffan drug makes the Balarans toxic to any Wraith who tries to feed on them. One of the Balarans, Novo, is working with Beckett as a volunteer assistant. The team’s conversation is interrupted when they hear a scream. Going to investigate, they find a squad of Wraith soldiers in the village...

Episode Quotes
Sheppard: What are the odds of you two getting by them?
Ronon: Pretty good.
Teyla: Slim, actually.

Sheppard: Is Jervis taken care of?
Teyla: He and his men have been locked up. They will not be giving us any more trouble. Thought I do not think it was necessary to stun them.
Ronon: Felt good, though.

Dr. Carson Beckett: Rodney, Rodney, wake up.
Rodney: Oh god, is it me… or have they juiced up the stun weapons?

Dr. Carson Beckett: How long is this going to take, Rodney?
Rodney: Do I rush you while you’re performing complicated surgery?
Dr. Carson Beckett: Aye, it’s been known to happen.
