  • General Hammond has decided that he no longer wants to be head of the sgc, says he is tired of sending good people out not knowing if they were even going to make it back. Jack thinks there is more to it than that. Well, he was right.

    This episode shows just how sneaky the nid could ever possibly be. They are all apart of this decision. Jack is very upset when he finds out that they have dismantled sg1. He wants to know what exactly is going on. So he goes to General Hammond's home to talk to him. He finds out that the NID had his grand children picked up from school and then taken home, so he decided for the safety of his family it was time to back out.
    In the mean time the new head of the sgc is tearing the place apart. He has ordered Sam to build and Naquadria bomb. She explains how dangerous this is but he insists that it is to be done.
    Jack had to result in going to Maybourn. N ot his favorite person but he figures he either knows something or can find out something. Maybourn says the only way he can help him is for him to get him out of prison to help find things out.
    So Jack does exactly that.

He says it will be done. and She has to follow orders. Once the bomb is set off it is catastrophic, and they cannot get the gate to shut down, it seems to drawing energy from the blast and it is going to take the sgc with it. this scares him cause he really had no idea what he was doing. all his short cuts have proven to be disasterous.
    They go to Kinsey home who at the time is haveing a party with lots of big wigs. So anyway they get Kinsey in his office in his home and they tell him what they know and of course he denies everything. While Maybourn is on his computer pulling up all his resisent activity online he finds that Kinsey is linked to the threats on Hammonds family and among other things. Jack is holding a gun on Kinsey but he knows he cannot shoot him. So they arrange a crew of reporters to come to the mansion where they are so that they can get out without interference from the agents that have ppulled up outside and make their big getaway, and of course Kinsey agrees to get Hammond back in the sgc with the agreement that they do not let anyone know what they found on his computer and his involvement with the nid.
