Defeated aye, but controlled? That's bollocks. If that's the case, why don't Genestealers control Marneus Calgar or someone else. You know, someone whose mental fortitude isn't supposed to be legendary and part of an order which is composed of the most powerful and best train psykers the Imperium can muster. It's a cheap gimmick that makes a mess of the Grey Knights just to push a few more copies of some crappy ass audio drama.
Besides, it's not like it's a whole hive fleet. It's just a nest of Genestealers for fucks sake. You know, the stuff that regular marines face down regularly and none of their dumb asses get possessed. Total bollocks!
Maybe because Marnus calgar isn't a psyker? Perhaps the connection to the warp a psyker has allowed them to be taken over by the hive mind easier.

So explain how the wolves gave them a bloody nose?
That's 3rd edition talking, mate. They are the Navy SEALS of the Space Marines, harder better faster stronger, and are used in operations involving the Crons, Eldar, and used against unknown foes.
I though that was supposed to be the point of the deathwatch? You know the arm of the ordo xenos?

3. Genestealers mind-controlling not just anyone, but a Grey Knight, who are powerful psychics and supposed to be resistant to that stuff.
Regardless of who, exactly, brought the Grey Knights together, I'll add mine to the chorus of voices denouncing this. I mean, if it was an entire Hive Fleet, that's one thing, but... well, you get the gist.
70 Genestealers who are capable of working together in ways that one can only start to imagine. Whose intelligence is still fully unknown.
