  • awesome episode!

    9.5
    SG-1 finds Daniel on a planet preaching to the locals and capture him. Oh, and he's a prior. They go on to try to figure out if he is actually under Adria's control or if he is on their side. The story of this episode was really good. Finally, we find out what happened to Daniel with some pretty cool flashbacks and Daniel's plan is pretty interesting. I also love this episode because Rick is in it :). He has great moments with Daniel in this episode and I was laughing harder then I've laughed for the last two seasons. I miss Rick...Anyways, it really was a great episode. I loved Daniel's role and Jack's role. I also actually liked seeing Woosely (I think I spelled it wrong); he's a cool character now. Overall, awesome episode and one of my favorites this season.moreless
  • Just like old times!

    Its always a special occasion when Richard Dean Anderson gets back in his Jack O`Neil suit and comes back to Sg1, even for only one episode, actually for the last time as far the Tv series is concern.

    I love it, interactions between Jack and Daniel and so on, no doubt Jack is special and this episode is special.

    The story itself is very captivating...Daniel`s whole presence in this episode is a big twist....I love the character turns, we just don`t know if he is really a prior or not. The acting was great (of course, RDA was there lOl) and the story perfectly executed, with a satisfying ending.

    Overall, excellent stuff....special one.moreless
  • Ok, let me tell you, this episode was one of the best of the season, and the final was fantastic.

    This episode is one of the best. You just don't know if Daniel is telling the true, or this is just another trick of the ORI. Also we must admit the Final was Exiting and let us waiting for more exiting episodes and I Hope Seasons of Stargate sg1.

    Ha, I Just want to know what happen between Adria a Daniel, Does she love him...? It will be good for the show.

    And Finally, I was sad when Jack told Daniel that he really miss go on Missions. I really Felt that he should re-join the SG1 once again. He is Jack and we miss him.moreless
  • Daniel becomes one with the Ori... or does he?

    9.5
    I was excited to see this one because Daniel is my favorite character and I was happy to see him come back after being gone for two episodes.

    SG-1 finds that the new Prior to a village they are visiting is in fact the lost Dr. Jackson. They beam him up to the ship. He procedes to tell them that he is ok and in control. He has a plan on how to destroy the Ori and he needs the help of the SGC.

    Naturally, they don't trust him at first. I didn't either. The adventure continues and the day is saved... almost. One of the things I thought was a little out of place was the inclusion of O'Neill. He seemed a little out of place and just thrown in for some odd reason. I started to think that he was under contract to appear in X amount of episodes and this was one they just threw him into.

    I don't mind though. I like having the whole team back together for another trip through the giant Orifice. What? They call it that sometimes, right?moreless
  • The Ori are back to their old tricks and Sg1 are sent to see what is going on, afterall the Prior is not making any threats and he is not being the normal Prior erson they are used to encountering. When they get there the find that the Prior is Daniel.moreless

    9.5
    Daniel tells the team that he has been waiting for them to show up, but nobody is sure whether to believe him or not. He says he has a plan to get to Adria but they are going ot have to hurry so that she doesn1t have time to finish it herself.

    Jack is not even sure whether he is lieing or not. Woolsey has come to deliver the message that the government wants to have Daniel terminated.

    Jack is really mad, and he tries to expl;ain to Daniel what is going on. Daniel Tells the plan to Jack and they set the wheels in motion.

    This episode is so stargate sg1. They are apparently fighting a losing battle and they still come out on top. It was so great to see Daniel back. But in the end they are not quite sure whether they did the right thing or not. Still a great episode.

    The showes continue to grow more every week. I love this show.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The makeup department must have missed a spot. As the camera was shot over Daniel's left shoulder talking to Jack, there is a big spot on his neck where the white makeup was not applied.

    • In the first scene with Major General Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson, aboard the Odyssey, you will notice that on the collar of O'Neill's shirt he only has one star. This indicates that he is a Brigadier General, rather than Major General. However in the scenes before and after this he has the two stars indicating he is a Major General (which he is).

  • QUOTES (30)

    • Tevaris: You're saying this Prior's claims are false?
      Mitchell: I'm saying that book has about as much truth in it as The Da Vinci Code.
      Vala: Hey, that's what they want you to think.
      Mitchell: They? They who?

    • Jack: C'mon! I'm trusting you.
      Daniel: Oh, yes. I really feel the faith. (shakes restraints)

    • Adria: In our time together I really come to see in you what draws Mother's affection.
      Daniel: Affect... what?

    • Daniel: No, it's me. Merlin is gone. He sacrificed himself for this to work.
      Jack: Yeah? Prove it. (Daniel waves his hand) What the hell was that?
      Daniel: If I was Merlin, you would know.

    • (assembling weapon)
      Vala: Okay, I think that's about it.
      Mitchell: (picks up a piece) Hang on what's this?
      Vala: Oh, I'm not sure about that one.
      Mitchell: See, there is always a widget left over.
      Vala: I thought you were always one short.
      Mitchell: Well you'd think both was impossible but it's not.
      Vala: Right. Actually I am pretty sure that is the timing crystal that detonates the weapon five minutes after it's inserted.
      Mitchell: Right, hold on to that.

    • (Ori soldiers start shooting)
      Mitchell: Alright, fellas, here's the deal. We are commandeering this ship we would like for you to put down you weapons and surrender please. (Ori soldiers continue to fire) That's a no.

    • Jack: Oh now it's we.
      Daniel: You've been in my position before. Well not this one but similar.
      Jack: Yes I'm sure I have. But my brain has been messed with so many times I don't remember.

    • Wolsey: Dr. Jackson was the one who suggested we should kill Khalek.
      Jack: He was the demon spawn of Anubis!

    • Jack: (about the weapon) I think if it did work the Ancients would feel obligated to... give us a fruit basket… or gift certificate... or something like that.

    • Daniel: You believe me, right?
      Vala: Mmm-hmm.
      Daniel: Okay, now I don't believe you.

    • Mitchell: (assembling the weapon) I don't know. For me whenever there's some assembly required I inevitably find some part missing – a screw, widget, what have you.
      Vala: Hmm, well, according to Daniel's instructions it all seems to be here.
      Mitchell: Oh, well, I never follow instructions. Think that could be part of the problem?

    • Daniel: (to Jack) Have I ever let you down? No, don't answer that. Have I ever let you down when it really mattered?

    • Daniel: That's crazy!
      Jack: That's what I said! It's crazy, it's nuts, it's whacko!

    • Daniel: So, what the hell is going on?
      Vala: This and that. You know the usual. You'll never believe what's happening on One Life to Live.

    • Daniel: (preaching) Blessed are those that follow the path to Origin. (gets beamed up) Hey! What took you guys so long? (gets zatted)

    • Daniel: Because I needed her to trust me.
      Vala: And did she? Well don't get me wrong, you're not a terrible liar but you're nowhere near as good as me.
      Mitchell: Who is?

    • Jack: You know there's a bottom line here, Carter doesn't think it can be done.
      Daniel: Yes it can. A Mark 9 beamed directly behind the gate in the Pegasus galaxy will destroy that gate. The wormhole connection will be broken.
      Jack: How do you know that?
      Daniel: Hello, Merlin!
      Jack: (sarcastically) Oh yes, Merlin.

    • Sam: Well, Daniel would never willingly become one of them like that. Preach their beliefs.
      Mitchell: And he's damn good at it. Had those people eating out of his hands without issuing one tiny genocidal threat.

    • (Jack is beamed unsuspectingly aboard the "Odyssey" by Daniel)
      Jack: Daniel?!
      Daniel: Jack.
      Jack: What's up?
      Daniel: Oh, I'm taking the ship.
      Jack: Well, I see that.
      Daniel: Yeah, I... I beamed the crew safely to the surface.
      Jack: Nice for them.
      Daniel: But as you probably figured out by now, I'm going to need you.
      Jack: You know, I was just thinking how much I missed being needed.

    • Jack: I've always been the one who caused the worry, not the worrier...
      Landry: It's not easy, don't second-guess yourself. This is the best possible course of action.
      Jack: Exactly. Action--good. Sitting around--bad.

    • Jack: Come on, where's the ship? How does Carter fly it? Give me any other intel I might need to make this op a success. Come on! (pause) I'm trusting you...
      Daniel: (sarcastic) Oh yes, I really feel the faith!

    • Jack: (to Wolsey) All right, listen to me closely, 'cause I'm only gonna say this once: you kill Daniel... over my dead body!

    • Vala: That little weasel-man who somehow represents your government...
      Daniel: Wolsey?
      Vala: I... I can't be certain, but I think he might not like you.
      Daniel: He wants to have me killed, doesn't he?
      Vala: Well, I'm not sure how serious he is, he seems quite the prankster to me...

    • Daniel: It's a good plan, it... it just happens to hinge on you guys believing in me, having a little faith. Now I thought you of all people might!
      Jack: Why?! You of all people should know that I don't believe anything anybody says, even if I understand what they're talking about!

    • Daniel: Jack, you have to believe me.
      Jack: Why?
      Daniel: Why? Well because, oh I dunno, the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance?
      Jack: You know, that old chestnut's getting a little... old.

    • Daniel: (restrained) Okay, this is not necessary...
      Mitchell: No offense, but have you looked in a mirror lately?!?

    • Jack: And just when does your chariot turn back into a pumpkin?

    • Vala: If it comes down to it I have a plan.
      Daniel: Oh you have a plan. Great. What is it?
      Vala: (exhales) Well, when I said I had a plan I have to plan the plan. So when or rather if it comes down to it I will have a plan. I've... um, cleared my whole afternoon, for planning.

    • (standing over a restrained Daniel)
      Jack: This is new.
      Daniel: Yeah, it's always something, isn't it?
      Jack: I gotta tell you though, not your look.

    • Sam: How's it going, sir?
      Jack: Longing for the days when I actually carried a weapon. What do you got?
      Sam: A crazy idea.
      Jack: I'm down with crazy. I like crazy. (crosses his fingers) Crazy and I are like that.
      Sam: Cam likes crazy, too.
