  • Tok'ra Traitor

    8.0
    Teal'c is contacted by a past beloved and tells the SG team that she has a way of defeating the Goa'uld. By meditating and communicating with her symbiote she was able to convince it that the Goa'uld way of life is evil and to turn to the Tok'ra side. The SG team agree to take her to the Tok'ra and after a symbiont exchange takes place we find that In fact the Goa'uld was lying all along and will now use his knowledge of the Tok'ra to destroy them.moreless
  • Teal'c gets another episode, then gets very, very angry...

    8.5
    Ah, the impetus of the "Jaffa revenge thing". Unusually among SG-1 fans it seems, I've always really enjoyed episodes that center around Teal'c. I think he is a very interesting character, who keeps his emotions in check about 80% of the time. I love it when Teal'c flies off the handle like he does towards the end of this episode. Everyone's favorite sexy Tok'ra makes her second appearance in this episode, so that alone was enough to keep me watching. More than that though this episode is critical in that it does create issues for Teal'c that show themselves in later episodes as he seeks retribution for the death of Shan'auc. It was a little slow at times, but I still found it to be very entertaining.moreless
  • Predictable

    7.5
    The episode itself was alright. I started watching Stargate SG-1 not long ago on the Sci-Fi channel, but couldn't make much sence of it because they play them out of order. So, I bought the seasons on DVD, have watched seasons one through three, and am working through four now. Though I thought it was decent, it's certainly not the best episode I've seen so far. Mostly up to the SG-1 standard, except for one fatal flaw.



    Predictable. Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was completely predictable. About the only thing I did NOT forsee coming was that not that the Tok'ra knew (or suspected) that Hebron/Tanith was not a true Tok'ra, but that Anise/Freya admitted to this fact. One other thing that was not so predictable, Teal'c was able to look into the eyes of the man-thing and not tear his head off.



    Other than those two parts, the rest seemed completely predictable.



    (As well as going through the show entirely for the first time, this is also my first (and maybe last) review)moreless
  • Some possibles storylines for the future..

    8.3
    Teal's episodes somehow usually make me have some doubts but this one was quite good. I specially loved the ending - that kind of dark conversation and threats on Teal'c side - did they fooled him or not?



    But I should talk more about the episode, I think. The beginning and some part of it was quite slow and not cathcing as I had no troubles walking away. I did like that it was Tok'ra storyline - and with last episode, somehow the Tok'ras have made some developments. They are somehow changed. But they are here and that's good. Also, some mystery solving (what was wrong in the end) was good.. and some more of the past of Teal'c why not...moreless

    • Shau'nac: Kal-mah has neutralized the sedative.
      Fraiser: Kal-mah?
      Teal'c: (angrily) It means child. (to Shau'nac) The demon you carry within you is no child!
      Shau'nac: Do I not carry it in me as I would my own? Have I not taught it right from wrong as any mother would? You have closed your mind, Teal'c. I expected more.

    • Shau'nac: I could not wait to speak with you.
      Tanith: Yes. We must speak of your audacity.
      Shau'nac: I do not understand.
      Tanith: How dare a priestess touch the mind of one who would be her god!
      (Tanith grabs her)
      Shau'nac: You despise the Goa'uld!
      Tanith: I am the Goa'uld!

    • Jack: How do I hang up with Anise and talk to Freya?
      Anise: Why?
      Jack: I like Freya!

    • Teal'c: She has carried her symbiote far past its time.
      Freya: Then come, this way. We were able to find a host both willing and eager.
      Jack: (to himself) Eager too, huh?

    • Teal'c: For what reason did you wait so long?
      Shau'nac: I was afraid you would not believe. Since word came to the temple that you betrayed Apophis, I have thought of you every day.
      Teal'c: As a shol'va?
      Shau'nac: No, Teal'c. Because of you my doubts became certainties. (pause) When we were children you were always the strongest, the bravest. That you would one day be First Prime was never doubted. But you did what no Jaffa before you had ever done. You challenged the gods themselves and won.
      (she places her hand on Tealc's face)
      Shau'nac: Among many on Chulak, you are as revered as the gods once were and yet you walk away.
      Teal'c: My place is here.
      Shau'nac: Is it? Bra'tac cannot be expected to bear the burden alone. It was you who first began walking this path. Do not abandon those who have followed you this far!

    • Anise: Egeria came to the Tau'ri to stop the Goa'uld from taking humans through the Stargate as slaves. Ra found her and killed her, but not before she had spawned our movement.
      Sam: Literally?
      Anise: Yes.
      Jack: Thanks for the image!

    • Anise: The great queen Egeria. She broke from the Goa'uld over 2000 years ago. Her offspring became the Tok'ra.
      Daniel: Egeria, Roman goddess of fountains.
      Jack: Fountains?
      Daniel: Also childbirth.
      Jack: How do those two go together?

    • Teal'c: O'Neill?
      Jack: Master Teal'c?
      Teal'c: I am in need of your assistance.
      Jack: I'm here to serve...

    • (regarding Teal'c and Shau'nac)
      Jack: Well, there may be a little more than meets the eye here. I'm thinkin' they got history.
      Sam: History?
      Jack: Oh yeah!
      Daniel: She's a temple priestess.
      Jack: So?
      Daniel: So, they don't do a lot of dating.

    • Jack: Is it dangerous?
      Daniel: Jack, he's stopping his heart.
      Jack: I mean for us!
      Teal'c: I am unsure of what will occur if and when communion with my symbiote is achieved. It may be necessary to restrain me.
      Jack: Well, knock yourself out!

    • Jack: You know, this whole talking to two people in one body thing really sucks!

    • Anise: (to Sam) Your father asked that I shake your hand, and give Colonel O'Neill a big kiss from him.
      Carter: That might have been the other way around.
      Jack: Maybe...

    • Shau'nac: My symbiote has assured me this will not happen again.
      Jack: Oh, well, if the snake says so, who are we?

    • (Jack is waiting for Bra'tac to pop out, but instead a beautiful woman appears)
      Jack: Bra'tac? You've done something to your hair...

    • Shau'nac: Bra'tac has taught me much about the Tauri. You are O'Neill, Teal'c's apprentice.
      Jack: Yeah. (double take) Apprentice? (Teal'c smiles)
      Shau'nac: Also a warrior of great skill and cunning.
      Jack: Apprentice?
