Season four, episode 14
Synopsis: While accompanying a princess on a pilgrimage to become queen Sheppard and McKay encounter a familiar enemy.
As filler episodes go, Harmony really wasn’t that bad. So much better than Irresistible. Despite having to older sisters, teen princess Harmony is set to succeed to the throne after the death of her mother. Colonel Sheppard and Rodney McKay agree to escort the bratty princess in a rite of passage to the ruins of the Great Temple of Laros.
I hate bratty kids but I like to see Rodney deal with bratty kids. It was a charming little story, girl falls for Shep but no way is Shep gonna fall for girl. In the end girl goes for Rodney. How often is that gonna happen? The fact that Harmony is a precocious and spiteful little child princess leads to a lot of spiteful Rodney dialogue. I lapped it all up. If Rodney isn’t hurting someone’s feelings then he’s not bringing his A game.
I think we may have a few more fillers to come for the simple reason that Rachel Luttrelll was probably out of action for a while. I am looking forward to seeing the whole team together again though and for the story to move forward.
