SGA - Recap + Screencaps 2x18 Michael

Here is the recap and the screencaps of 'Michael'. There are 215 caps in the recap. So, not really dial-up friendly. I tried to keep the shipper comments at a minimum but there is still Elizabeth/John and Teyal/Ronon in this recap. If you don't like these pairs, don't read it or just look at the pics of whomever you fancy and skip the written parts.

Here are the links to zip-files with 520 screencaps (13,8 mb): YSI Link or Megaupload Link If you use them, please credit me. Thanks ^-^

At first glance this episode seems unnecessary but after I watched it, I have to admit: It has this little something. Connor Trinneer as the troubled Wraith-turned-human-and-now-turning-back-to-ugly-innerself was not a bad choice. For me the episode stands a little aside from the other episodes (does that make any sense at all?) but just like the last episodes (Critical Mass, TLG and Coup d'etat) it's far better than some others.
And there's another thing: Elizabeth made the decision. Her dark side is not so hidden anymore...

Even if it doesn't look like it, there is Sparky (Elizabeth is so in control of John) and of course Spanky (Teyla is so in control of Ronon) *giggle* Sooooo, here comes either the

Short Version

Poor human!Michael (with big holes in his memory) suddenly starts feeling wraithy. Teyla tries to make him feel at home in 'Lantis but Ronon gets all primitive/possesive and plays his cave man routine. John is not sure how he feels about Michael, eyesexs with Elizabeth while she bites her nails about her decision to let wraith!Michael turn human. Carson wears the whole time the I'm-so-doomed look and plays Beckettstein. Rodney wants blue jello. Oh and Kate (Heightmeyer) tries to help human!Michael overcome his wraithy feelings.

or the

Long and wraithy/dirty Version

Stardate XXXX2006, Commander Trip wakes up in a stra- WHOOPS! Wrong show *skitters over to 'Lantis* Okies, right show now: A man-who's-name-we-do-not-know wakes up in one of the observation rooms in Atlantis.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

He looks confused and a little desoriented.

In her office Elizabeth-the-one-who-always-works gets a call over radio.

Carson: "He's awake." Ohhhhhhhh... very dramatic *cough*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Back in the infarmery the man-without-name gets flashed by a flashlight that belongs to Carson.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The doors open a reveal our favourite doing it against all surfaces couple. Btw, where did Lizzie found John?

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Carson infroms them that everything is normal, and the man-who-really-needs-to-get-a-name is 'bouncing back quite nicely.'

Man: "Bouncing back from what?" Great he knows how to talk and all that stuff but that expression he doesn't know. I will not start on this illogical logic of these situation cause I'm not Vulcan.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Elizabeth: "Hallo, Michael." (I'm just guessing but could this name have to do with the Archangel Michael?) OMG he has a name *bounce*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

And did you see HOW CLOSE Sparky stands together? I so love the No-Personal-Space policy *grins*

Elizabeth asks Michael if he knows her but he doesn't. Lucky for him. John is the only one who is allowed to 'know' her *giggle*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

She introduces herself and John *happy sigh* Hand meets leg *yay*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

John: "You served under my command." How can you forget that?????? 'Under his command' *melts* *wants to be under John*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Michael: "...." Still nada *smacks him over the head* You are so not worthy to serve under him!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Elizabeth starts question him if he knows where he is but Michael doesn't even know who he is. Elizabeth tells him, his full name is Lt.Michael Kenmore.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

But there's still nothing from Michael *sigh*

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

As Elizabeth mentions the name 'Atlantis' a lightbulb goes off! Whoopie! John jumps in and explains what happened to Michael, his capture by the Wraith.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Another lightbulb *blink*

Michael: "What did they do to me?"

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Elizabeth: "We're not quite sure yet." Ô.o

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

John: "We sent a rescue team but you were wounded." Ah, that's why he was knocked out so long. Anf I thought you and...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Carson: "You were unconscious for days."

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Elizabeth assures him that they will find out what happened and how to help him. Now I feel much better. Really. I think...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Cut to one of the room above the observation room. The observation room of the observation room! Elizabeth enters the scene.
