This episode really showed them a little, what is really going on in the world of Goa'ulds. It was that kind of episode, were everything was presented - we had hope that they might get something from Apophis, but that was very unlikely. There was the action and danger to Earth again by heating the iris. And To'kra people around.
But for me, the most interesting part was how every one of them reacted to the presents of Apophis. There seemed to be some people, who had problems with that, then Daniel who so badly wanted to know where his wife is. And those reactions and Fraiser, still taking him as her patient. And this episode tried to remind us that even the worst Goa'ulds like Apophis, they have human hosts, they are humans. And it is nightmare for them. A really great angle to remind us.
