Twist of Fate is the fourth episode of Series One of Atlantis. It was written by Richard McBrien and directed by Alice Troughton.


While hunting in the mountains, the boys stumble across an abandoned baby. Jason refuses to leave the child to die and insists he return home with them to Atlantis but this charitable act has far-reaching implications and our gang soon find themselves embroiled in a complicated web of secrets and lies. With their own lives now on the line, as well as the child's, it seems they may well pay the ultimate price for interfering with fate not just their own but something bigger.
