Stargate SG-1 (1997–2007): Season 8, Episode 18 - Threads - full transcript

Daniel finds himself in a strange time and place - a diner where Oma is working as a waitress. She gives him a clear choice - he can choose to die or to ascend but if it's the latter, he will not be able to help his friends fight Anubis, who has yet to be disposed of. He strikes up a conversation with another patron, Jim, who has his own take on the situation. Sam meanwhile decides the time has come for her fiancé to meet her father Jacob. Jacob is not well however, something he has kept from Sam for several weeks. After Pete surprises her - he thinks he's found the perfect house for them - Sam realizes she has to come to grips with her feelings for someone else. Teal'c and Master Bra'tac have information that Anubis may be gathering what remains of his forces for an attack on Dakara.

Something neither one of us can admit
given our working relationship, our military ranks.

I didn't leave...

Because I care about her...

It's time to let go of the things that prevent
you from finding happiness.

You deserve to love someone.

- What's his name?
- No one.


- Pete.
- Pete?

Pete Shannahan, he's a cop.

Oh my God!

Maybe I did something good every now and again but
nothing I've ever done seems to have changed anything.

There is only one thing we can truly control.

Whether we are good... or evil.

I know you who are Daniel Jackson,
but you know not who I am.

No! Don't do this.

Last year, you died.

I'm dead?

Actually, you...

ascended to a higher plane of existence.

He was beamed away before our very eyes.

The human form Replicator is attempting
to probe your mind, as we speak.

When she is done, she will destroy you.

And when that time comes,
you will be faced with a choice.

A force of rebel Jaffa have managed
to take control of the temple at Dakara.

Have the fleet disengage their battle
with the Replicators. Take it back at all cost.

We have found the Ancient weapon on Dakara.

You think Daniel had something to do with it?

I don't know.

You have failed me.

We've known for some time
that the Jaffa cannot be trusted anymore.

The remaining army of Kull Warriors still stand
an excellent chance of retaking Dakara but...

Worse than failure!

Worse than cowardice!

You have betrayed me.

Did you not think I would know what you have done?

How can you still underestimate my powers?

Your methods were ultimately unnecessary.

Not when there was another
way of defeating the Replicators.

I would spare your life for the moment,

only so that you may witness
the fruits of your labours.

First, I will retake Dakara, then, thanks to
the modifications you've made to the Stargate,

I will destroy every living thing in this galaxy,
including you, all at once.

I do not understand.
You could have modified the Stargate, yourself.

You have no way of knowing what is necessary
and what is not, in the grand design.

Whose grand design?


Sorry sir. I saw you were with someone.
I didn't want to interrupt.

What's up?

Who was that?

Kerry Johnson.


I've heard the name.

Oh, she was heading up the investigation onto Goa'uld
still at large, after the incident with The Trust.


Sir, I wanted to talk to you about...


We haven't heard from him in a week.

Doesn't mean anything.

Sir, we know he was captured by Replicators.

Chances are he was onboard a
replicator ship when it disintegrated.

All we know for sure is that he's missing.

Sooner or later...

Forget it! I'm not falling for it this time!

Falling for it?


How many times have you thought he was gone
and then he shows up... in one form or another.

I'm sorry, but we're not having a
memorial service for someone who is not dead.

You hear that? I'm not buying it!

What? He's just waiting for us
to say a bunch of nice things about him.

Next thing you know,
he'll come waltzing through that door.

Like, right now.



So, what can I get for you?

Brothers Bra'tac of Chulak,

and Teal'c of the Tau'ri.

For your enduring courage and vision,

for the strength of will
that has brought us to freedom

from the Goa'uld.

A future we have yet to even comprehend, but one
that will be determined by our own unfettered will.

I hereby bestow upon you,
the highest honour any Jaffa can know.

From this day forward,
you shall both be known as blood kin,

to all Jaffa!


From this day forward,
no Jaffa shall bow before anyone,

and never again before a false God.

Hail Brother Bra'tac!

Hail Brother Teal'c!

Be proud, Teal'c. Today, we are free.

This day is not yet over brother.

Then I shall be proud for you, and of you.


Hi! Thank you, Airman.

So, this is exciting. What's the surprise?

You will see.

Do I get to go through the Stargate?
I mean, what planet are we going to?

You don't get to go through the Stargate.

Ok, I'm a little disappointed, but still,

full security clearance and
an all access pass to the SGC? This must be big.

Oh, it's big!

Pete Shanahan? Jacob Carter.
Dad this is Pete.


Not quite yet. You have to actually marry my daughter,
before you can call me that.

I was just... I meant... stammer, stammer.
It's an honour to meet you sir.


Why didn't you tell me?

I didn't want you to be nervous.

Why would I? I wouldn't.
I've been dying to meet you.

I think it was Sam that was nervous.

How did not telling me help?

It didn't.

This is great!

You really got one of those things in your head?

If by one of those things,
you mean a 2,000 year old Tokra symbiote. Yes.

Seriously. Come on. That has gotta freak
you right out sometimes. That's weird.

Hey! What do I have to do,
to get some more coffee around here?

Find your enlightenment.


We don't need them here. Just order what you'd like.

Ok. I'll have the truth with a
side order of clarity, please.

The replicator version of Sam, was in your head trying
to access the knowledge buried in your subconscious.

But you gained control of her instead.

She killed you to stop you. That's where I stepped in.

How's that?

Pretty clear.

Well, we aim to please.
Customer comes first, you know.

So I'm ascended again.

Not exactly. Sort of a stop along the way.
You have to make that choice for yourself.


Bacon on the side?

No, I remember this place.

You should, it came from your mind.

My Grandfather brought me here,
after my parents' funeral.

I had waffles.

- Waffles it is!
- Wait!

How do I know it's really you, this time?

How do I know this is not some trick Replicator Sam
is playing, to stop me from controlling her?

How deep is the river if you cannot see the bottom?

Deeper than the coffee in my cup, I'll tell you that.

Excuse me. Frank, I need a noseboy and a blanket.

Two handfruit wrecked on a shingle,
with a mystery in the alley.

A warmy with a mouldy lid and two checkerboards,
alright? Oh yeah, hold the paper!

We have dreamed of this day for so long.
Fought so hard for it and sacrificed so much.

- And now that it is here.
- It is not here over.

The balance of power has shifted, Teal'c.
Our victory here at Dakara has turned the tide.

Jaffa everywhere are abandoning the old ways.

Coming to see the Goa'uld
for the false Gods they are.

We are foolish to rejoice in conquest over
the Goa'uld, when they are not all dead.

Anubis' claim to be a God is false,
but his powers, most certainly are not.

It is agreed. He must be dealt with.

But for once, there may be greater concerns,
than the eradication of all the Goa'uld.

So consumed were we, in attaining freedom,
that we did not plan nearly enough for its aftermath.

The Jaffa have fought with each other for so long,
that uniting them as one,

may prove as difficult a task, as convincing
them to free themselves from the Goa'uld.

Generations of war and mistrust
will not be healed overnight.

Indeed! If we do not organize quickly,
freedom will become anarchy.

The High Priests are proposing
a leadership be assembled.

That is wise.

They wish both of us to sit on the council.

You know that would take you from the Tau'ri.

Your purpose in joining them was to one day
free the Jaffa. Now, that day is upon us.

You must not abandon your people,
when they need you most.

Of that, I am aware.

The Council will preside from the new Jaffa homeworld,
where a great city is to be erected.

A haven for all those who have chosen freedom.

Here, on the Holy Ground of Dakara.

Hey! I know you!


Yeah. The guy from the paper, Doctor Daniel Jackson.

It's ok, keep it. I'm done.


No problem.

So, you gonna visit Mark and the kids, this trip?


Is everything ok?

I'm just not very hungry.

You've been pretty quiet.

I'm fine.



It's been two hours since Pete left.
You haven't said a word.

I did so.

He seems nice?

I believe that's three words.

I'm gonna marry him.

I know.

I just met him. What do you want me to say?

I know how happy he makes you.
That's all that matters to me.


Selmak really liked him.


Yeah, and he's a great judge of character.

Well ok.

Look Samantha. It's been a long day.
I think I'm gonna turn in early.

You sure nothing else is wrong?

Yeah. I'll see you in the morning.



I'm sorry to wake you sir.
Teal'c's back and it sounds like we have a problem.

I knew it.

Alright, I'll be there as soon as I can.

Oh crap!

What was that?

Trouble in Jaffa land.

Gotta go, I'm sorry.

You know about this?


And you're not gonna do anything about it?

You know I can't.

Well, I'm certainly not going
to just sit here and let this happen.

You can't leave, you're not ascended yet.

You walk through that door,
you're choosing the alternative.

You're saying I'll be dead.

Pretty much.

Ok, ascend me.

It doesn't mean you'll be able
to help your friends. You know the rules.

Yes, but once I'm ascended, I can choose
to take human form again, just like last time.

Technically, yes.
But you can't take that paper with you.

You won't have any of the knowledge that you
gained here, and good luck in ever ascending again.

I'm certainly not going to help you a third time.

So you're saying that I can know that Anubis
is plotting to destroy all life in the galaxy

and all I can do about it is stay here
and contemplate my own enlightenment?

You can eat your waffles.

No syrup?

Hi, how's it going? I'm Daniel Jackson.

Sorry to bother you.
I just wanted to know if I could borrow your syrup.

Although technically,
I know it's not going to be borrowing,

cos I know I'm not going
to actually give back what I've used.

Enjoy your meal.

Hey guys! How's it going?

They're not going to talk to you.

Why not? Who are they?

Others. You know one of them.

You mean Ancients.

A couple of them.

What are they doing here?



Me too. I told you before, they're always watching.

You wanted some motor oil?

I still wish you guys have blown
that thing up, when you had the chance.

We had to, at least, be sure that all
the Replicators, really were eliminated.

And even though we apparently did
get rid of them all in this galaxy,

there may still be more elsewhere,
that could be a threat, again.

So we wanted to try to figure out how the device worked,
in case we ever needed something like it again.


Well now the Jaffa have something that can blow up
the entire universe, with the push of a button.

The Jaffa will defend Dakara with their lives.

You wanna explain to me why they don't wanna wreck it?

The ruins of Dakara have become a symbol of freedom.

Much more Jaffa believe that the device's power
helped free them, by destroying the Replicators.

They also believe that controlling this power
will help ensure their freedom in the future.

And get them virtually anything they want.

The Jaffa would never use it to that end.

Jack is right. No-one should have
that kind of power at their disposal.

Sorry! Thought I'd turned it off.

So we're all in agreement?
One way or another, it's gotta go. Correct?


Thank you.

If you are suggesting we destroy this device,
against the wishes of the High Council,

I must point out, that would not be a good first step

in relations between the Tau'ri and
the newly formed free Jaffa nation.

Why don't you do it? They already hate the Tok'ra.

To be honest, a plan may already be in the works.

But as you know, Selmak and
I aren't fully in the loop any longer.


Sorry to interrupt sir.

Colonel? There's a call for you.
Apparently it's urgent.



Teal'c and I have arranged another
meeting of the Jaffa Council.

Our hope is to continue strengthening the bond,

between previously warring Jaffa,
by focusing on a common enemy.

Yeah, it's just that it's not a good time right now.

There are still many Goa'uld who remain a threat.

I know, I'm sorry. I don't know.
It could be an hour, it could be all day.

Yeah, Ok. Yeah, me too. Bye.

Sorry about that sir.


No, no. Just a misunderstanding.

Hey, weren't you supposed to meet Pete,
at the florists this morning?

No... Dad.

Well I'm sure that's what you said. For the wedding.

I know!

Go ahead Carter.
It's supposed to be your day off, anyway.

It's ok, sir.

Teal'c and Bra'tac are meeting with the Jaffa.

There's nothing you can do around here.
Go pick flowers!


More coffee?


Can you sit a minute?


Oh! How am I supposed to put it?

'Man, are my dogs, tired. '

That's good.

How are your waffles?

Best I ever had.

Can you tell me why you stopped me
from killing Anubis the last time I was ascended?

Because if I didn't stop you, the others would have.

And they wouldn't have been as nice about it.

You mean, they wouldn't have erased
my memory and left me naked on the planet?

That was your choice. Ok, maybe not the naked part.

But I didn't totally erase your memory,
even though I was supposed to.

Ok. Why is it ok to break some rules, and not others?

Look, if you knew I had a problem following the rules
the last time, why offer me ascension again?

Because I didn't wanna see you die,
without at least giving you a second chance.

Look, I have trouble following the rules.

I'm not really supposed to help people ascend.

You're supposed to do it on your own.

But you do it.

I walk the line. Believe me, I crossed it
a few times and paid for it, dearly.

My point is, you just need to be willing to put
your prior Human existence into the proper context.

Sorry, I gotta get back to work.

Coffee please!

Chocolate or vanilla?

I'm sorry, what?

Chocolate or vanilla. The cake. Just in case you
can't make the meeting with the caterer.

Oh, I'm sorry. I really do wanna be a part of this.

I hope so. It's your wedding too.

I know.

I realise this must be weird for you.

Worrying about place settings,
when we could be destroyed by aliens, at any minute.

A little.

We're not about to be destroyed by aliens, are we?


Cos, you seem a bit distracted.

I'm sorry.

So, did your Dad like me?

Of course! Why wouldn't he?

Tough guy to read.

You just have to get to know him.

How about Selmak?

Ah! He thought you were very charming.

For a Human.

Well, generally speaking, that's my type.

Good! Did I tell you, I also have a surprise for you?

No, what is it?


You'll see.

The Council remains unwilling to destroy the weapon,

for fear it will weaken the resolve of the Jaffa
to stand united against the remaining Goa'uld.

You realise we have to consider
that thing a threat to our security?


The Council recognises the danger,
and has decided to take action

by aggressively seeking out and killing Anubis.

Once that threat has been eliminated,
they will reassess the decision to destroy the device.

Well, we don't even know
if Anubis can be killed yet, do we?

We must not suggest to the Jaffa that he cannot be.

At the very least, we can eliminate
the remainder of the forces of Anubis.

I believe this quest will unite
many of the still fractured armies,

by giving them focus on a common goal.

Got anything to go on?

Many of the Kull Warriors were
killed in battle with the Replicators,

and intelligence gathered indicates that Anubis may be
marshalling the remaining Kull Warriors on Tartarus.

A pre-emptive strike is being prepared.

Hey, Daniel! How's it going?

Do we know each other? I feel like I know you.

Call me Jim. We ran into each
other the last time you were ascended.

Nice to meet you, again.

Still haven't made up your mind, huh?
Death or everlasting enlightenment.

I don't really see the choice, myself.

Of course, I don't wanna be dead, it's just that...

Listen, the reason I came over here is to ask you...

why are you talking to me?

Oh, you mean because these other snobs
won't even look at you. I'm different, like Oma.

Really? Cos, I kind of have the impression
that you two don't quite see eye to eye.

What? That little... That was nothing.

We both operate, somewhat outside
the normal rules and regulations.

Sometimes we disagree on how,
far outside we should go, that's all.


Yeah. As long as these other guys
don't strike me down, I figure I'm ok.

I guess that's what I'm trying to figure out.

I mean I feel like, if I agree to ascend, I'm signing
a contract and I don't even know what it says.

Obviously I had a little trouble
with the fine print the last time.

You sure did.

You know about that?

It's all out there.

I just don't see how I can agree to stand by and let
Anubis destroy every living thing in the entire galaxy.

Well, that's a tough one.

Speaking of which, have you seen the latest?

He's a crafty one. Really knows the ins and
outs of the rules. I give him 3-1 odds to succeed.

You wanna know the irony of it all?

That device was originally used by the Ancients,
to create life in the Milky Way.

Well, recreate it, after the whole plague thing.
Not kidding.

Now it all gets undone with the push of one button. Leaving
Anubis to recreate things all over, to his own liking.

There's a waste of a million
odd years of evolution, huh?

I say someone should really do something to stop him!

No-one will.

Can I get a coffee?

Can I open them now?


Ok, now!

What do you think?

Uh, well, uh...

- Speechless, huh?
- Yeah.

Isn't it great?
Remember our first night together?

You described the house you always wanted?

I can't believe this.

The kitchen isn't yellow, but we can paint.
C'mon, I'll show you.

And you're not gonna believe the back yard.

The dog's gonna love it.


This is bad.


This pie is great,

and there's nothing to wash it down with.

Is there anything you can do to stop Anubis?
You did say, someone should do something.

I did, didn't I?

As far as what can be done,

it's kinda complicated.

Yeah, so Oma tells me.

Yeah, I don't think she's told you everything.

What does that mean?

I'm saying...

I've already said too much.

No you haven't.
In fact, you've hardly said anything at all.

You gave up eternal enlightenment,

all the knowledge and power of the universe.

Why do you think you did that?

To fight for Humanity any way I could.

Yes, very big of you.

You rejected everything Oma offered you,

and now she just gives you another chance?
Based on the goodness of her heart?

Well, that is the point, isn't it?
I mean, she is ascended, she is good.

Sure, best intentions.

Do you know what happened between me and Oma?

Why did I choose to take Human form, again?

You should ask Oma.

Hi sir.


Look, I'm sorry to bother you at home like this, but...

How did you know I was here?

I saw the smoke.

Oh, yeah.

Look, is this ok? I mean, I could have called first.

No, yeah. I mean, it's fine.


what brings you to this neck of the woods,
on such a fine day, in my backyard?

Well actually,

I've been sitting in your driveway for the last ten
minutes, trying to work up the nerve to come and talk to you.

The truth is, I've been trying to work
up the nerve for a lot longer than that.


Pete put a downpayment down on a house.

Well that's great!

It's a beautiful house.


The truth is, I'm having
second thoughts about the wedding.


See, the thing is, the closer it gets,
the more I get the feeling that...

I'm making a big, huge mistake.

Look Carter, I don't know what...

I'm sorry to bother you with this,


see, there's actually a good reason
that I'm bothering you with this,

and if I don't tell you now, I might never...

Jack, I looked everywhere, but I could not...

Colonel Carter!

Miss Johnson.

Yeah, I... I didn't...

We were just meeting here,

in my backyard on this fine day,

to discuss the state of affairs.

Well this is awkward.

Ya think?

Jack didn't want anyone at the SGC to know about us.

No! Look, I... I, uh.

I'm sorry, this is my fault, I really, I shouldn't
have come by unannounced like this.

Well, you know, now that the cat's out of the bag,
you're here,

why don't you just stay?

I'm sure there's enough charred
meat on the grill for all three of us.

No, thank you, I...

It's the SGC.

Colonel Carter.

What? When?

Ok, I'm on my way.

I gotta go. It's my Dad.

You can't stay here forever, you know.

Actually, I suppose you could, I just
don't know why you'd really want to.

Except for the great service.

Look, obviously I don't wanna just die.

Don't suppose there's any other options?

I can't get into it.

What's stopping you from ascending?

I don't know.

Must be something holding you
back, making you doubt yourself.

Maybe it's not me I'm doubting.

Look, whether you choose to accept living
on a higher plane of existence,

has nothing to do with me or anything
that I can or can't tell you.

It's all up to you.

But there is something you're not telling me.

Is that what Jim said?
You shouldn't be listening to him.

Why not?


Pity answer.


I'm sorry kiddo. We both are.

About what? What's going on?

I don't wanna ruin everything like this.


It's Selmak. He's dying.

Oh my God, I'm sorry!

It's ok. He's ok.

He led a pretty full life.

I didn't know Jolinar that long, but
I think I have some idea of what it's like.

Well, this is a little different, Sam.

As you know, when a Tokra symbiote dies,

they can prevent their host from dying,
as Jolinar did with you.

Problem is,

that last selfless act requires a certain
amount of energy and a conscious effort.

What are you saying?

By all rights,

Selmak should have been dead weeks ago.

I wouldn't let him go.

I thought we needed him.

That I needed him to help you stop the Replicators.


He held on as long as he could.

Then he slipped into a coma, just after
we activated the weapon on Dakara.

You've known all this time, since then?

I didn't want to spoil your wedding.

Now, I thought we could make it.


He's barely alive.

I'm gonna die with him, Sam.

Where is she?

I don't know. Off doing whatever
it is she does, when she's not here.

You ask her?


Wouldn't tell you.


Had to find out for yourself last time, too.

Man, were you pissed.

About what?

Tell me.

What do you know about Anubis?

I know he's half ascended, whatever that means.

There are many planes of existence,

between Human existence and ascension.

Basically, the others use their collective powers,

to keep him from affecting
anything on a grand, cosmic level.

But it's ok for him to destroy an entire galaxy.

It's ok for him to do anything he could have done,
back when he was a regular old Goa'uld.

I see. What does this have to do with Oma?

Goa'uld's are bad, and Anubis is as bad as they come.



And ascension requires that someone be pure of spirit.

One must be good, to the very core,

to achieve enlightenment.

So how does somebody like Anubis, ascend?

Now he's getting it!

Oma helps people ascend, but she'd
never help somebody like Anubis!

Maybe not on purpose.

Are you saying he tricked her somehow?

Rule number one!

No lone ascended being, shall help a lower ascend!

Lowers are what we call Humans and such.

If you deserve to be here,
you should be able to get here on your own.

If there's an exception, for whatever reason,

a majority vote by the collective, can get you in.

But Oma thinks she knows better,

and she's taken her licks for it.

I admit for the most part,
she's brought good people onboard,

but as the old saying goes, nobody's perfect!

Not even us, higher beings.

Oma helped Anubis ascend.

Get out!

Get out, now!

Oh, look at the time.

Gotta go kid, business to attend to.

It was nice talking to you.

A number of the Tok'ra have responded.

They want to pay their respects.

They can come.

I can't believe there's nothing they can do.

They can remove a Goa'uld.

In the last few years, you've almost
perfected the process of saving the host.

That process instantly kills the symbiote,
before it releases toxins.

It's too late for that Sam.

I'm sorry.

I hate to do this to you,

but I should have been dead four years ago.

Since then, I've been all over the galaxy.

I've done things most men never dream of.

I've heard that before.

I just wanna know that you're gonna be happy.

I am.

Don't let rules stand in your way.

What are you talking about?

You joined the Air Force, because of me.

I love my job.

You can still have everything you want.

I do, Dad.


How's Colonel Carter's Father?

It doesn't look good.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Closing the door.


deeply symbolic.


I really like you.

We're good together.


we are.


You have issues.

It's ok, we all do.

There's just one big one in particular
that I don't think I can love with...

live with.

I need to get out before I get more involved.

We can still work together, can't we?

I'd hate to have to ask for a reassignment.

It's really important to me.

We agreed this would never affect the job.

We did.


You know, there's one thing I don't understand.

Just one?

Is the Air Force the only thing keeping you two apart?

Rules and regulations?

Cos if it is, you're making a very big mistake.

And you know what I should do?



Don't get me wrong. You're considered
invaluable to the program, by the Pentagon,

but the President has appointed
a civilian to run the SGC before.

Just a thought.

The time has come for this ancient
warrior to fight one final battle.

I think not, old man.

This victory will present us with many new challenges,
that will require your wisdom and sound judgement.

What our people will require,
is a youthful, vital leadership.

And that is something others
are better suited to provide.

You are only as old as you believe yourself to be.

Talk to me in fifty years.

Indeed I will.

So it's true.

He tricked me.


You couldn't tell?


He must have found some old
Ancient research on ascension.

When he came to Kheb, he knew what he was doing.

When I realised the horrible mistake that
I had made, I tried to undo it, but I couldn't.

That's when the others stepped in.

I don't understand. They only sent him
halfway back. Why not all the way?

- It's complicated.
- Yeah, what isn't around here?

They warned him.

He wasn't allowed to use any knowledge or power,
unless he otherwise would have gained it, as a Goa'uld.

I don't understand. They let him wreak havoc.

They don't care if he destroys all life in
the galaxy, life, they themselves, created?

They haven't stopped me from continuing my work.

I've tried to make up for it, help when I can.

It's your punishment.

You're forced to watch, powerless to interfere,

and let Anubis do whatever he wants,
just to punish you?

I told you before. The galaxy
you're from, the plane of existence,

is so small and insignificant,
compared to the rest of the universe.

I don't care. It's wrong.

That's what you said last time.

Excuse me!

Isn't it enough, already?

I mean, a whole galaxy of innocent people,
enslaved and tortured for generations,

now on the verge of being destroyed, for nothing?

For what?

For one mistake a good person made,
trying to do a good thing.

Come on, the least you can do is listen to me!

That can't be against the
grand high fallutin' cosmic rules!

Hey! I'm talking to you!

Ok, ok.

Well I know you can hear me.

Hasn't she suffered enough already?

Certainly, enough other people
have suffered, to punish her.

Don't you think you made your point?

That's the thing, Daniel. They don't.

I keep breaking the same rule,

helping people ascend. That's why you're here.

What if you stopped?

Wouldn't undo the problem.

That's why I keep doing what I do.

Anubis can't be killed. Not by you, not by me.

He is not here. No one is here.

The defences we fought through are automated.

We have been deceived?

Anubis fed us this intelligence to lure us here.

Our forces defending Dakara are depleted.

We could not have known, brother.

You were right old friend. The device of
Dakara should have been destroyed, at all costs.

You okay?

Actually I'm fine.

Good even, strange as that sounds.

I thought I lost him four years ago.

Since then, we've been closer
then we ever were my whole life.

In a way Selmak gave me the
father I never thought I'd know.

Come here.

Thank you Sir.

For what?

For being here for me.


I'm ready.

I love you.

Can I get a coffee?

Get it yourself.

Don't mind if I do.

Hey Danny-boy, you see the paper?

No, what's it say?

The trick worked.

Those stupid Jaffa took half
their ships to hunt down Anubis.

Meanwhile his army was poised to attack Dakara.

The remaining rebel Jaffa guarding
Dakara are being slaughtered.

It's only a matter of time before old
Anubis gets his hands on the weapon.

I'm sorry, you sound almost happy about that.

- Who, me?
- Yeah.

What do you have against Oma?

- Daniel...
- No, I wanna know.

I mean you're not just watching,
you're coming in here to rub it in.

Why are you taking such pleasure in her punishment?

Me? I don't have anything against Oma.

I think she's great, don't I?

Hell, she's the one that helped me ascend!

You got it now.

You are Anubis.


I knew from the beginning.

Guess I just thought that when you said yes that...

You were worth the risk.

Don't say I deserve better.

Can't get much better than you.

That's not true.

I wish I could believe
this had something to do with your father.

You needed some time to sort some things out.

I guess all I can say is,
I hope you get what you want.

That's it?

What do you want?

You want me to get down on my knees and beg?

God, no! Of course not.

It's just...

I thought you would react differently.

- Bye Sam.
- Pete!

The rebel fleet guarding Dakara
has fallen to the forces of Anubis.

Bra'tac and the remaining
rebel ships will not arrive in time.

Anubis now controls the weapon.

Well then we find the biggest damn nuke we
can and we shove it right through the gate now.

Anubis will certainly have the gate shielded,

the nuke will not arrive in one piece.

If we can dial the Alpha site, we may be able to prevent
the weapon from connecting a wormhole to either planet.

- It may only buy us the 38 minutes that the gate...
- Go, go, just go.

Seargent, dial the Alpha site, now.

Wait a minute, that's not me.


I don't know...

Incoming wormhole!

- That's not gonna stop the energy from the weapon.
- If it is the weapon.

No iris codes.

We're too late.

Self destruct.

That's not going to destroy the gate,

and theoretically there's only a remote chance

it would disengage an active incoming...
- Carter!


You make a great cup of coffee.

Well, gotta go!

There's nothing you can do, you don't have the power!

But I do.

- You can't kill me, either.
- I can fight you.

- Well you can't win.
- It won't matter.

You won't be able to do anything but fight me back.

- What are you going to do?
- Something I should have done a long time ago.

Oh no, no... No, no!

Wormhole disengaged.

What's going on?

I don't know, it must be some
kind of.. system malfunction.

- That's impossible!
- Shut it off.

Aborting self destruct.

The Kull warriors became disorganized and confused,

as tough if they no longer knew what to do.

They no longer had a master to serve.

After that, they were easily defeated.

Many Jaffa lost their lives at Dakara.
Those that survived are united as never before.

And we are in agreement.

The weapon must be destroyed.

Oh, that's good.

A new memorial will be erected in its place, so that
our triumph over the Goa'uld will never be forgotten.

I still don't quite understand what happened.

One minute Anubis is about to push
the button that ends all life in the galaxy,

and the next minute he's just... gone.

Indeed, it is a great mystery.

One can only assume he was vanquished by some beings.

If not, why would he forfeit the weapon and his army?

You think?

I do.

It's the only thing that would explain
the self destruct not going off.

Of what do you speak?

O'Neill believes that Daniel
Jackson was somehow responsible.

Nope, it wasn't me.

Anybody else hear that?

I'm in here!

That's Daniel.

Don't! Don't come in!

Woah, hey there!

It's... a long story.

This is great.

I told you.

Can't believe we didn't do this years ago.

Yes well, let's not dwell.

- There are no fish in this pond are there?
- Nope.
