    Well, it took a lot of Baals to make this episode, but I think they pulled it off well.

    Seriously though, this is an interesting twist in the SG universe, a goa'uld who is willing to 'share' power, even with himself? Which one is the 'real' Baal, if they consider that sort of thing, and if they don't, how do they keep their egos in check? A Council of Baal? They'd all think along the same lines, but once cloned, they'd be their own persons, and being goa'uld, might try to sieze power.

    I also find it interesting, now that the goa'uld are in less of a position to portray themselves as gods, they have stopped using the 'godly voice', to perhaps blend in, or make themselves seem more appealing to normal humans?

    All in all, an interesting and entertaining episode.
