Here's an exclusive look inside the second to last episode of Stargate Atlantis, "Vegas." In which, we assume, Sheppard gets knee capped by Bobby 'Bacala' Baccalieri and Phil Leotardo. Spoilers below!

If there is a scifi god/overlord looking out for us all it will let The Sopranos' Frank Vincent and Steve Schirripa unleash lots of fists and fury on the Wraith in this episode. In this murder mystery, Sheppard is sent to Vegas as a detective and apparently has to play a card game with Todd Brunson (pro card player and Doyle Brunson's son), Stargate composer Joel Goldsmith, and some execs.

But more importantly, Vegas is going to have some Sopranos stars in this episode. So when the Wraith starts feeding on the Vegas masses, does this mean that Leotardo can order a hit on the white haired aliens? I really hope so — SGA needs a taste of incredibly brutal violence.

"Vegas" airs January 2, 2009 on the Sci Fi Channel.
