  • Great characterization of Sam

    9.0
    Sam: Please, Teal'c, don't give me that 'way of the warrior' crap. I get enough of that from Colonel O'Neill.



    Great characterization of Sam. The woman's touch. Desperately needed acknowledgement of the surviving team members' sense of the loss over Daniel.
  • bad for a season finale...

    8.5
    Season finales are supposed to be huge and have exciting, crazy story lines, but this one didn't. Season finales are also supposed to have big cliffhangers, but, again, this one didn't. It just ended with Daniel blowing some wind at Jack to tell him that he was there. Anyways, SG-1 goes to save Thor and an Asgard scientist from Anubis and they suceed, of course. The episode wasn't anything special. It was a good regular episode, but a bad finale. In this episode we got to see the reactions of the team to Daniel being gone. Sam was all sad and Teal'c and Jack were over it. Anyways, it wasn't a good finale.moreless
  • Much to learn but as a season finale?

    9.1
    As the episode title promises - there is so much to learn - and I specially loved that it was much about the Asgard. They are great guys and we have not get much of them lately. So, it was great to see them. Episode itself was really good - a little fun, some dark tunes, action and excitement all the way, Thor in danger (we all love him, don't we and we do not want Goa'ulds doing bad things for him) All the hologram thing, new bad guy who looks so mystical and dark and has some very powerful technology - it was just so good.. but season endings have usually been cliffhangers and this one.. I do not know.. the ending was lame.. and just would ask like O'Neill: "That's it?"moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • As Teal'c and O'Neill arrive at the door of the shield generator room (just before they are knocked out), the Carter hologram appears behind them. However, to save money, the directors have her walk onto the shot and play the appearance sound effect while she is off camera (thus we don't see her appear but the effect makes it believable). On the widescreen edition, Carter can clearly be seen crouching in the corner as the two approach the door.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Heimdall: As a race, the Asgard reproduce exclusively through a process of enhanced cellular mitosis.
      Sam: Are you serious? You have no other means of propagation?
      Heimdall: No.
      Jack: Carter?
      Sam: They're clones, sir. All of them.
      Jack: Ah, well that answers a few questions.

    • Teal'c: How are we to locate the Asgard facility?
      (Heimdall beams them down to the planet)
      Sam: Well, that was easy...

    • Jack: You know, we should really consider putting another chair back here. If you think about it, it'd be much safer, wouldn't it?

    • Sam: Please, Teal'c, don't give me that 'way of the warrior' crap. I get enough of that from Colonel O'Neill.

    • Heimdall: In fact, for nearly a thousand years, we have been physically incapable of achieving cell division through meiosis.
      Jack: Hmm?
      Sam: Sexual reproduction, Sir.
      Jack: Ah. A thousand years?
      Heimdall: It is not something we wish to discuss with other races.
      Jack: This I understand.

    • Jack: We're not that much of a nuisance just yet.
      Teal'c: Of that I am not so sure.

    • Jack: Okay, next time I'm the hologram.

    • Thor: It is only a matter of time until they break through my mental defenses.
      Jack: (imprisoned) Well, love to help you but we're a little busy here.

    • Jack: I can't believe they took my watch...

    • Sam: There'll be a brief interval where they might detect us.
      Jack: How brief?
      Sam: Just a few seconds. The odds of them spotting us are pretty slim.
      Jack: How slim?
      Sam: Hardly worth mentioning, sir.
      Jack: And yet ... you did mention it.
      Sam: Yeah, and I'm beginning to wish I hadn't.

    • Jack: Any ideas?
      Heimdall: We cannot risk capture. We must destroy the ship ourselves.
      Jack: Any good ideas?

    • Teal'c: Our chances of escape are negligible.
      Jack: Oh, I don't know. All we've got to do is bust out of here, take out every Jaffa between here and the peltac, commandeer the ship, and fly on home.
      Teal'c: I stand corrected.

  • NOTES (11)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Character name: Heimdall
      Heimdall, one of the Asgards featured in this episode, was the watchman of the gods in Norse mythology. In this episode, Heimdall was watching over the ancient Asgardian that was going to be used in helping with future cloning.

    • Thor: We have lost the ability to reproduce ...
      Thor's admission that the Asgard have lost the ability to reproduce is the popular theory behind alien abductions and experimentation, particularly the Grays.
