    This is a fitting and better part 2 to the season finale sans flash backs, thank god. as the epilogue to the season finale we finally get to see Hathor in her glory, cold, seductive, power mad and fun, fun, fun, fun as a villainess. Can Hammond and Teal'c stage a rescue and save the rest of the SG-1 team?
  • This is one of my least favourite episodes even though it's a two parter season opener

    5.5
    Much as I enjoyed the Hathor story line I don't think that the writers were on the ball with this episode. Daniel's haircut didn't throw me enough to notice that his character was torally acting out of character for the entire episode. I mean Hathor raped him and he barely blinks an eye, and then she puts a Goa'uld into his best friend and he dosen't even voice an objection.

    I also found the entire creation of an SGC look a like to be silly.

    But honestly - given the Hathor and Daniel history - this episode was vastly mis written and one of the worst double episodes ever because of it.

    Writers - pay attention.moreless
  • Hathor is taken on by the SGC, much better than part one.

    9.0
    This episode is a great deal more entertaining than the first part of this two-parter. The character interactions are solid and of course there were some thrilling battles between the SG teams and Hathor's jaffa. Of course, it was also great to see Hathor again, I always thought she made a splendid bad girl, always referring to herself as "we". Since there no clips from previous episodes here it was by default more entertaining, but on top of that I think there was an above-par performance on the part of all cast members including General Hammond. It was fun seeing Hammond go off-world again and I loved seeing Teal'c "thread the needle", really cool effects there. Definitely a good way to start season 3.moreless
  • Quite good...

    9.0
    It was quite good episode.. I am not sure if the perfect season start but still - much better than last season ending, so it was enjoyable. All the action, motion, all those obstacles on their way and ofcourse - O'Neill and Goa'uld who has possessed him. Luckily not too much as the To'kra is always on right place.



    I most almost say, I did enjoyed Teal'c's and Hammond's storyline even more than they main one. I do not like Teal'c char too much but the way he realized that the death of Apophis has not taken they way he thought. And the way Hammond goes there to seek Teal'c's help to save his men from another planet... Interesting storylines.moreless
  • pretty good episode...

    8.8
    This is the conclusion of the really crappy episode "Out of Mind" and it was pretty good. Honestly, I was expecting more. I read the summary and it sounded like it was going to be amazing, but it was just pretty good. Jack is implanted with a gou'ld and several SG teams attempt to save SG-1 whiel Teal'c goes to Chulack and gains support against Apophis's son. In the end, Hammond saves everyone and that's about it. The whole idea of Hammond going off world and saving the SG teams was really farfetched. It was almost stupid. Other than that, it was a good episode with good action and was a pretty good conclusion to a bad start.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When the SG teams are firing at the Jaffa behind the force field, the fluctuations where the bullets hit are clearly visible. The bullets strike at various points all across the force field, many of them nowhere near the target. It is unlikely that anyone, let alone the elite hand-picked SG personnel would have such comically awful aim. The special effects team may have wanted it to look cooler but it just isn't realistic.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Teal'c: Firing the weapon will be your responsibility, General Hammond.
      Hammond: Understood. What exactly did you mean by threading the needle?
      Teal'c: Observe. (Teal'c flies them through the Stargate) Fire.
      (Hammond blasts the tower)
      Hammond: Yeeeee hah!

    • (a hooded figure reveals himself to be Hammond)
      Teal'c: General.
      Hammond: Not what I'd call an army, but it's a start.
      Bra'tac: Hammond; of Texas.
      Hammond: Master Bra'tac. Gentlemen, I need your help.

    • Jaffa Woman: I know you. Shol' va! You dare return to Chulak?
      Teal'c:The people of this world are my brothers and sisters. I have betrayed no one.
      Jaffa Woman: Except your god.
      Teal'c: False god. Dead false god.
      Jaffa Woman: So you say, but his son lives.
      Teal'c: With you or without, he will be defeated, as was his father. Our people will taste freedom.
      Jaffa Woman: Bra' tac paid a heavy price for those words.
      (Teal'c takes down the two Jaffa guards who are backing her)
      Teal'c: You may tell your kinsmen that Teal'c has returned to Chulak. You will go to every home of every warrior in this city. You will tell them I will speak at the house of Bra'tac at dawn. Summon them!

    • Teal'c: The Goa'uld are not gods.
      Crowd: (murmurs) Shol'va.
      Teal'c: It is a lie we live each day. Only when he takes a host does a Goa'uld become strong. Even then, only as strong as the Jaffa that serve him. With out us, the Goa'uld are nothing. We are their strength. We are their power. Until we choose to serve them no more. I was witness to the final breath of Apophis. I watched him tremble with fear at what lay beyond. I believed that day would be honored for all time on Chulak. But instead , I see Jaffa taking up arms against one another. I see cowardice and I am ashamed. This is our time. It will not come again.

    • Makepeace: How's the leg? Can you walk?
      Daniel: It's just a deep bleeding gash, but it'll be fine.

    • (the symbiote in Hathor's hand reacts to Jack)
      Hathor: It seems that our friend has chosen.
      Jack: What, the gray doesn't bother ya?
