Episode Summary

In the middle of a battlefield Daniel and Amonet meet in a tent. Amonet uses her hand device on Daniel, and he passes out. When he awakes Amonet (and Sha're) are dead, their body's stored in the mortuary. Daniel is really depressed and resigns from the Stargate Project, but when he wakes up next morning Sha're is right beside him. All signs in life tell Daniel that Sha're is dead, he even went to her funeral. Yet he keeps seeing her everywhere, in his bathroom, at the SGC, even at her own funeral. Is there something keeping her back from finding peace?moreless

  • Oppps

    Teal'c has no choice but to kill Daniels wife "Amonet" when she tries to destroy him. The remainder of the episode is about Daniels grief and his realization that Amonet was secretly sending him a message when she was attacking his mind with Goa'uld technology. That messages is about the location of her son and the importance of his survival.
  • Daniel must confront the fate of his wife...

    The most important thing about this episode, is that Daniel's search for his wife finally ends, and he gets a reason to stay on SG-1. There was only really one thing I did not like about this episode, and that's Daniel is once again kind of A jerk towards Jack. In the dream Jack is trying to help Daniel and the best Daniel can do in return is insult O'Niell's intelligence. One of the most frustrating things about Daniel's character, in my humble opinion, is that he is really obnoxious and self-righteous sometimes. At the same time this fault makes me like him even more because it makes him seem a lot more human. This is not my favorite episode by a long shot, but it is probably not one to miss.moreless
  • It was emotional

    It was very emotional and they way it started - it was so promising and the promise what Teal'c had to make - I can only wonder how hard it was.

    But somehow, the way the message was sent to Daniel and the way it was so confusing and made the storyline jumping and for me lose some of that fantastic story.

    I adore the way Daniel's character was developed and the way he realized there might be something else than just going trough the gate to get to her wife. I never thought that this is the only thing for him to keep it going. Many revelations about his char. Great episode but... it would have been greater.moreless
  • Sha're is finally dead!

    Daniel goes to Sha're on a planet and gets attacked by the hand device and has a series of dreams in which Sha're is trying to tell him to save her child. The episode had some really good action scenes at the beginning, but then it got boreing and a little confusing, but it was all explained at the end. Daniel goes through a series of dreams in which he quits and Sha're tells him to go and find her son. It was an ok idea, but it was pretty slow and boreing. It helped with Daniel's character development also. I'm just happy that Sha're is actually finally dead for real. Her story got so annoying and now she's gone. Ya!moreless
  • Very emotional.

    This episode starts with a great action sequence and the reveal of Sha're. This is one of the what the hell is going on episodes that many of the people that I showed it to did not know what was happening until the very end. This episode did a good job of resolving the Sha’re arc and showing Daniel that he had to go on with his life and also forgive Teal'c. The character moments in this episode are great with the scenes in the lab, at the elevator, and Danny's apartment. The funeral was very well done and emotional. The addition of Kasuf was a nice touch and the actor did a great job again. The reveal that Daniel was still having the ribbon device used on him was a surprise to the people I showed it too. All in all a great emotional episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Trivia: Daniel's birthday is July 8th, 1965. (The year might not be right, but he said he was about 4 1/2 years old in 1969 and the month was August.)

    • Why didn't Teal'c use a zat to stun Ammonet/Sha're? He could've broken off the attack on Daniel long enough to save him. Or for that matter, he could have used a different weapon and just wounded her to buy Daniel some time. While wounded he would've had time to remove her hand device.

    • Before Teal'c enters the tent, he fires one final shot in the battle, but his staff was closed.

    • When Daniel asks Jack how he got into the apartment Jack tells Daniel that he let himself in and he will need a new lock. Daniel shoud have noticed his lock was broken.

    • When Dr. Frasier said they hadn't taken Sha're's body back to Abydos, the camera zooms in on Daniel and he blinks a few times. It's obvious that they slowed down the footage on the last blink to prolong the scene as the footage moves in approximately 15-20 frames per second.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jack: Daniel, the UAV showed no big signs of civilization - human, Goa'uld or otherwise.
      Daniel: So you want me to look for little signs of civilization. Itsy-bitsy artifacts and...
      Jack: It's good to have you back.

    • Jack: General, the guy's got two left feet. I'm tellin' ya, he slows down the unit.
      Daniel: Deja vu?
      Jack: (confused) Deja vu?
      Daniel: Deja vu? You know, Rothman was a two-time decathlon champion in college.
      Jack: Rothman?
      Hammond: Two left feet, huh?
      Daniel: Trying to get Robert out of your unit?
      Jack: Well, yeah.
      Daniel: Any chance of that happening, sir?
      Hammond: Only chance would be if you reconsider.
      Daniel: Okay.
      Jack: Good! So Rothman's gone... (pause) What?
      Daniel: Okay.
      Jack: Are you kidding?
      Daniel: No. I've thought about it and I've decided I'd like to come back.

    • Jack: "The SGC may be the single most important human endeavor for the future of mankind." Not bad, huh? You said that!
      Daniel: The SGC will go on without me.

    • Jack: (to Daniel to stop him to leave SGC) And you'll miss the excitement. All the new cultures you get to explore, the living history. It's the kind of stuff you can't walk away from.

    • Daniel: Robert Rothman... he was my research assistant when I was doing my dissertation. Smart guy...yeah, had a good teacher.
      Jack: Geek.
      Daniel: Yes, he used to call me that.
      Jack: I was talking about you.

    • Hammond: What changed your mind [about coming back]?
      Daniel: I don't know. I just think there's something out there I have to be the one to find.
      Jack: See? I miss that. I have no idea what he means, but I buy it!

    • Daniel: (to Jack and Kasuf) How'd you get in here?
      Jack: I got sick of waiting in the hall so I let us in. You...need a new lock, by the way...

    • Daniel: (to Rothman) Don't let Jack get to you. He's just intimidated by you because you're way smarter than he is.

    • Jack: Come on, you'll miss me!
      Daniel: Yes: all the salty bad tempered insults, or the illogical arguments.
      Jack: Okay, you'll miss Carter and Teal'c.

    • Jack: Rothman, you're being reassigned.
      Rothman: Why?
      Jack: You're being replaced.
      Rothman: Why?
      Jack: Because I'm intimidated by your intelligence. Where's the confusion here?

  • NOTES (3)


    • Sha're: Kheb.
      Daniel: I know a Kheb. The -- there's a reference in Budge.

      E.A. Wallis Budge was an Egyptologist and prolific author in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; he wrote more than a dozen books about Egyptian history, myth, legend, and lore.

    • Jack: Hey, Bruce Jenner, you're sitting this one out.
      Bruce Jenner was the 1976 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist and went on to do motivational speaking and charity work. Jack says this to Dr. Rothman after finding out he was a two-time decathlon winner in college.
