    Pursued by Goa'uld death gliders, former Goa'uld conqueror and sworn enemy of the SGC, Apophis, throws himself on the mercy of the team. Despite his past evil, SG-1 grants him sanctuary. Apophis, who shows signs of having been tortured, is slowly dying, and promises all the knowledge of the Goa'uld in return for a new host body. When O'Neill rejects his offer, Apophis reveals that he is being pursued by an ancient and powerful Goa'uld named Sokar, the original god of death. Conquered by Apophis in Egyptian times, Sokar has come to wreck his revenge, and will kill anything that stands between him and his ancient adversary. The team's Tok'ra ally, Martouf, tells SG-1 that unless Apophis is sent back to face his fate, all those around him will be destroyed, either by Sokar, or the many Goa'uld who wish their former leader dead.
