Episode Summary

EDIT
The Tok'ra find out Sokar is going to take his ship in orbit around Netu, and come up with a plan to kill him: since they don't have any weapon capable of penetrating Sokar's shields, they are going to launch some kind of nuclear device into the core of Netu. There it will build up critical mass, and the planet will explode, along with Sokar and his ship. The device gets launched, but Jack, Daniel, Sam, her dad, and Martouf are still on the planet. They now have 12 minutes to get off of the planet, but first they have to deal with an old enemy...moreless

  • Great episode

    9.0
    This is a fun action packed adventure steeped in mythology. THe team has a chance to take out Sokar after he has kidnapped Sam's father. IT's up to the SG team to rescue Sam's' father take out Sokar's stronghold and in the return they find out an old friend is back and madder than ever... Apophis!
  • Excellent conclusion...he's baaa-aack...

    Apophis is back! Arguably one of the best villains of the series returns with a vengeance. SG-1 must escape Netu with Jacob. A good chunk of the episode is set aside for Apophis' interrogation of the team members, and these scenes were very well done, the best being when Jack was forced to drink the blood of Sokar and we see Charlie again. Lots of good emotion there, and pretty good suspense in Martouf's interrogation when he appears to give up the location of the Tok'ra. As in the previous episode the Netu set looked fantastic and the musical cues matched the environment perfectly. These were two episodes that you should definitely not miss, with good stories extremely relevant to the overall story arc.moreless
  • In Hell...

    8.8
    This was great episode. All the way they played with the memories and they tried to get the knowledges out. Again, really beautiful moments involved with Jolindar's and Martouf's storyline and the way it looked like he could betray them but no - that was cleverly done.



    And all the things with Apophis - oh, that serpent is hard to die and now he has taken care of his revenge there and he will soon come after the Earth, so sure.



    Some really great moments and the ending dialog, idea that they should go tot the vacation to Alaska... after that fire planet, it would be create..moreless
  • great episode...

    Selmac, Martuc, and SG-1 are trapped on a planet that resembles hell and are being interrogated by Apophis which has come back from the dead. In the end, SG-1 and the others are rescued by Teal'c (which was in a goa'uld bomber the whole time, not on the planet) and the planet is blown up. This episode is a great episode. It was a great way to bring Apophis back to power. I also loved to see all of the flahbacks that Sam and Jack had. It really develops their characters and makes it all the more interesting. Anyways, great episode and one of my favorites.moreless
  • Good to have Apophis back.

    9.3
    This episode picks up nicely from the first part and gets right back into the action. This has a lot more character stuff and back-story stuff. The memory device combined with what appeared to be LSD you get a very unique way to see some moments from Sam and Jack's past that was very well directed. The sets for this episode are great especially the throne of Sokar. The scene with Apophis and Sokar was one of my favorites in the episode because I loved seeing Apophis on his knees begging for mercy and both actors did a marvelous job. Then there is the effects that blow everything the show had done previously out of the water. From the rescue to the explosion of the moon everything was top notch. My favorite part of the episode is the end with the reveal that Apophis ringed to Delmak and was back to his rightful place as main bad guy. My only regret is that Sokar had to die and was not able show his potentional as an enemy. Overall a great episode and the better of the two.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Trivia: When Sam is being interrogated by Apophis (via the memory of her father), there is an astronaut doll in the background behind her. This appears to be the Major Matt Mason doll that was referred to in "Children of the Gods".

    • While being interrogated, Daniel agrees with Apophis' (as Jack) statement that the Harsesis carries the knowledge of the Goa'uld that fathered him. This differs with what Teal'c told him, that the Harsesis carries the memory of the entire Goa'uld race ("Forever In A Day").

    • Considering how close Ne'tu was to Delmak (as revealed in the final shot and when Apophis beams from Sokar's ship to Delmak) and considering how large and fast-moving the debris from Ne'tu were, it's miraculous that Delmak and Sokar's base survived.

    • Apophis's staff weapon doesn't make the closing sound after he threatened to kill Sam in order to get information from Martouf.

    • On Netu Jacob/Selmak was in very bad shape. He thought he was dying. On the cargoship, after Teal'c rescued them he seemed almost fine. Even Selmak can't heal that fast.

    • When angered, Sokar's eyes don't light up like the rest of the System Lords.

    • Sokar's throne room is clearly a redress of the cargo ship set (with the escape pods removed). You can see the pilot seat and the front window when the Jaffa comes running in to warn of the moon's impending destruction.

    • The shockwave from Ne'tu was 2 dimensional - it should have been spherical.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Aldwin: I'm sorry I doubted you.
      Teal'c: I am as surprised as you that we survived.

    • Jack: They put that damn memory thing on me... and then they gave me something... that reminded me of the 70s.
      Daniel:The blood of Sokar. (short pause)
      Jack: Daniel...
      Daniel: What?
      Jack: I'm gonna pass out again.

    • Daniel: Jack - wake up!
      Jack: I don't wanna go to school... uh, what?

    • Jacob: (after just having escaped from a hot volcanic moon) Why don't we take a father-daughter vacation? I hear Alaska's cold this time of year.
