This made me think, instead of some of them that your mind works on remote control, this one had something good. What will happen in the finale which from what I have read is not really a finale but the opening of 2 made for TV and DVD movies. I think that eventually Daniel will find the will and ability to ascend and take on the ORI. It appears that they have been building up to some kind of confrontation.
I am curious on how they will handle this last of the series, and it appears that the Atlantis crew will make an appearance, and that gives them the ideal way to get Carter to Atlantis for next season.
