Sunday afternoons are always dull without Stargate and this was an excellent episode after months of drought. Picking up where New Order 1 left off with Sam's battle with Fifth is excellently played out as she struggles with all the torture he put her through. Fifth was played perfectly as a machine with human emotions, with his admissions of afection for some conterbalanced with his sheer creepy obsessed stalker factor off the scale. His admission to Sam was startling but logical as well as his defintions about human emotions and cruelty as he struggled to cope with his attraction and his desire for revenge.
It was also good to see some of Jack's sense of humor as he invented the machine to beat the replicators as well as his Daniels and Teal'c desire to find Sam. Thor also adds something to this episode with his usual calm minded self.
The new weapon against the replicators is long overdue and perfectly timed as Jack Daniel and Teal'c make their way through the forest along with the nail biting tension as the standoff ensured.
The scene where they find Sam is touching without being sappy as the team are finally re-united.
The final scene where we see that Fifth has created a replica of Carter is also a stroke of brilliance and a great storyline to come.
Sunday cannot come fast enought
