“The Gift” is the prologue to the big three-parter, and I think it’s interesting from a production standpoint. Visual effects and new sets are kept to a bare minimum, there are just a couple of new speaking parts other than the recurring players, and the most exciting thing that happens for most of the installment is that Teyla has a recurring nightmare where she becomes a Wraith. Rachel Luttrell gets to be made up all ugly and gross for two incredibly short jump-scare shots. Lots of facts are added to the lore, and it’s a pleasant enough hour, but it also feels like it is marking time until the main event. We’ll get to that in a week and a half.
