  • An unusual alien encounter leaves Carter at the brink of death...

    This was another one of those few episodes in Season 4 that kind of fell flat for me. The entire episode takes place inside the SGC, for one thing. Granted, some really good episodes are centered around the base, but this was not one of them. I gave it a 7.5 because despite its somewhat average storyline, it had some very interesting moments. Perhaps the part I liked the most was the fact that Jack was proven right about the entity and Daniel was proven wrong. Often times it's the other way around, so it was nice to see the writers finally mix it up a little. Frankly, it was getting too predictable for a while with regards to Daniel always being proven right about how to deal with a moral dilemma. Still even with that it was kind of a "blah" episode. Not an episode I really look forward to, but also not one that usually skip.
