SCENES FROM FROZEN
"He's burning up."
"From what I've been able to learn so
far, sir, the virus ultimately acts
like cerebrospinal meningitis by attacking
"The symbiote, Kanan, is someone I know
well. I have no doubt that he would
be willing to blend with O'Neill, cure
him, and then leave him again if another
suitable host can be found."
"Sir, the symbiote's host died while
they were on a mission. The Tok'ra have
strong reason to believe that the symbiote
has vital information to reveal and
this would give him that chance." "Sir...please..."
O'Neill is back in the rescue pod. He is being carried by Sam,
Thoran, Teal'c, Jonas, and two medics. They carry him through
It is night, there is a mist, perhaps a light rain falling. Two
people, a male and female, are running through wooded area. They
are being chased. Soon a Stargate comes into view. There is light
from fires around the gate.
"It's too far."
The woman stumbles and falls. The man returns to her and kneels
down beside her, reaching out to touch her arm.
"Hide there until the Chappa-ai is activated.
They both get up and move in different directions. Kanan continues
on to the Stargate, splashing through puddles and begins dialing
the DHD. A staff blast hits his right shoulder from behind and
he falls to the ground, face down. He is struggling to get up,
but is unable to do so. Seconds later, a symbiote falls out of
his mouth and scurries away. The man continues to try and crall
away, but his hand is stepped on by a Jaffa.
"Shek'mal, Tok'ra. Kree! Jaffa...Shal
Another Jaffa rolls the man over to reveal that he is Jack, who
appears to be unconscious and muddied.
We see a sarcophagus, which opens to reveal Jack, looking rather
"out of it". A face, shadowed from being back-lit, peers over
the sarcophagus at Jack. This appears to be Ba'al to me. Jack
rolls his head to the side to peer back into the face.
"The host lives, my lord."
A monitor is displayed as the alarm klaxons are heard in the
background. The monitor indicates that a signal is being received
and that the signal is recognized as Tok'ra. Then we see Hammond
descending the stairs from his office into the 'gate control
room. He walks up behind Davis, who is manning the computer,
"It's the Tok'ra."
"It's about damn time."
Hammond walks down to the 'gate room as Thoran walks through
the Stargate. Hammond approaches Thoran as he descends the ramp.
"Councilor Thoran...I'm afraid my patience
on this matter has just about run out.
You've been promising the safe return
of Colonel O'Neill for days. Where is
"I'm afraid I am the bearer of bad news..."
SG-1, Dr. Fraiser, Thoran and Hammond
are now in the briefing room.
"...And he just walked out of your base.
Nobody noticed he was gone until it
was too late."
"With the attack on Revanna, our numbers
have been severely diminished. We had
no reason to expect this. I see no reason
to assign blame."
"Colonel O'Neill did put his life in
"Receiving a symbiote was his only hope
"He could have refused."
"In which case you would have never
been able to retrieve the knowledge
in Kanan's mind."
"A more than fair exchange."
"Colonel O'Neill would not agree to
a blending with a symbiote unless there
was more at stake than his life."
"Perhaps it was that repugnance of blending
with another mind that caused O'Neill
to behave so irrationally."
"General, I can't speculate on Colonel
O'Neill's state of mind, but while a
mature symbiote can take control of
the host body whenever it wants to,
it doesn't work both ways."
"I can vouch for that, sir. There's
no way Colonel O'Neill could have walked
out on his own."
"Then he was forced to do so, against
his will, by the symbiote."
"You accuse an honored Tok'ra of behaving
as a Goa'uld."
"Kanan has fought the Goa'uld longer
than any of you have lived. Yet you
spit the word symbiote as though you
spoke of vermin. Whatever you think
of our form, Kanan was as a brother
to me." (He pauses and we see shots
of Hammond and Teal'c.) "The Tok'ra
council accepts that Kanan may be lost
"That's the big difference between us,
Councilor. We don't leave our people
Jack is led into a room by two Jaffa. They walk him onto a platform
and push them ahead of them. A sound is heard as Jack is "sucked"
forward and into a metallic, spider-webby panel in the wall.
He is stuck to that panel like a fly on a web. He is facing the
panel. The Jaffa walk back toward the entrance to the room. Ba'al
enters the room and walks onto the platform. Jack is turned so
his back is against the panel and the Jaffa leave.
"Who are you?"
"You go first."
Ba'al picks up a large knife, looks at its blade and takes a
seat on a bench on the platform. The platform also contains a
table-like structure from which he acquired the knife.
"You claim you do not know me?"
"Well...take no offense there, Skippy,
I'm sure you're a real hot, important
Goa'uld, I've just always been kind
of out of the loop with the snake thing."
"I am Ba'al."
"That's it?...just "Ball"...as in Bocce?"
"Do you not know the pain you will suffer
for this impudence?" (He stands, walks
toward the front of the platform and
holds up the knife which becomes horizontal,
pointing in Jack's direction.)
"I don't know the meaning of the word...Seriously,
impudence. What does that mean?"
Ba'al let's go of the knife and it flies into Jack's left shoulder.
Ba'al picks up another knife.
"I shall begin again...who are you?"
"Colonel Jack O'Neill, U.S. Air Force.
Two "L's" in that."
"That may be who you once were, Tok'ra."
"I may be a lotta things...but I'm no
"It is true we were only able to capture
the host. Your symbiote fled the body
out of cowardice. But it is also true
that Tok'ra share body and mind equally.
You will know all that it knew."
"I think I know less than you...think
"Why have you come to this outpost?"
"Now, see, that's a perfect example
right there...I haven't a clue."
Ba'al lets the knife go and it flies into Jack's right pectoral
muscle. Jack grimaces and Ba'al picks up another knife.
"You have been here before."
"You know your way to and from our most
secret outpost. Clearly you have been
"Did you really hope to escape my personal
"Why did you abduct my slave?"
"All right...look...this is the last
thing I remember, I swear to God. I
was sick. I agreed to let the Tok'ra
put a snake in my head or I would have
died. Right now, I'm kinda wishing I
"A wish easily granted." (Looking at
the third knife.) "What was your mission
"Why have you returned?"
"I've never been here."
"What did you want with the female?"
"Death will only offer a temporary escape.
I can revive you again and again...a
thousand times if need be. Only once
you have told me everything I ask, will
you be allowed to die" (He brings the
third knife to horizontal.) "...one...last...time."
(He lets the third knife go and it flies
Sam, Teal'c, Jonas and Thoran are in the briefing room, looking
at the starmap.
"Where was his last mission?"
"As an operative aboard a mothership
in Zipacna's fleet. He managed to escape
during a battle with Lord Yu's forces,
but just barely."
"Did he have a motive to return to that
"Unfinished business? A task left undone?"
"His report stated the mission objectives
were complete. We are willing to attempt
contact with our operatives on these
worlds here, here and here." (Points
to three spots on the starmap.)
"His previous missions."
"If Kanan returned to either of these
worlds, for whatever reason, our operatives
may have learned of it."
"Well, when will we hear news?"
"It may take many months."
"You spoke of Kanan's mission reports..."
"What of it?"
"Well, we'd like to see them. If Jonas'
instinct is correct and Kanan had unfinished
business, there may be clues."
"Their contents are not relevant."
"Well, Colonel O'Neill's life is at
stake. I believe that is relevant."
"What you ask...is not possible."
The sarcophagus opens to reveal O'Neill again. Then we see him
being led down a hall by two Jaffa who stop in front of an octagonal
opening on the wall. They push Jack through the opening. Then
one Jaffa moves his hand over a device on the outside wall and
Jack find the room orientation changing. What has been the floor
has now become the wall and the far wall has become the floor.
Now when he looks at the opening he just stepped through, it
is directly above his head, along way up. Jack begins to check
out his surroundings, which consists of walls, two built in benches
and four lighted panels which are in reach. Quite a way above
him, four more lighted panels can be seen. Suddenly he hears
what sounds like a distance scream. He looks up toward the opening.
He sees the woman, all dressed in black, sitting at the opening.
"Is it you?"
Jack continues to look up at the opening, with a questioning
look on his face when he hears...
Jack looks beside him to find Daniel, dressed in casual clothes,
no glasses, sitting on one of the built-in benches. He gives
a little wave.
"I leave...and look at the mess you
get yourself into."
Jack gives him a quizzical look.
"It's good to see you."
"Yeah...you too." (Jack walks to the
bench opposite Daniel and sits.) "It's
a shame you're a delusion."
"No, I'm here...I'm really here."
"Sure you are." (Jack takes off his
show and throws it at Daniel. It passed
right through him and bounces off the
wall back toward Jack.)
"Here in the sense that my consciousness
is here, if not here in the full physical
flesh and blood sense, which is really...neither...here
nor there. The point is...you're not
"I just tossed my shoe through you."
"Yes you did. That's because I've ascended
to another plane of existence."
"Remember Oma Desala, the whole...glowing
thing, you helped me out. I couldn't
have done that without you, remember
"I'm, I'm energy now..."
"How's that workin' out for you?"
"Very good. You...however..."
"Yeah, well...you know what it's like..."
(getting up to pick up his shoe) "...comin'
back from the dead. Takes a while to
get the color back in the cheeks."
"So...not a delusion?"
"Okay...show me your stuff. Bust me
"I'm not allowed to interfere."
"You're interfering right now."
"No, I'm not."
"Yes, you are."
"No, I'm not. I am consoling a friend."
"What good's the power to make the wind
blow or toss lightning around if you
can't use it to spring an old friend
"I would if I could."
"You can't do that stuff?"
" I can. I just...I can't."
"Well, thanks for stopping by, then."
"Ba'al is torturing you and I wasn't
just gonna sit by. Look, all he wants
to know is the reason you came to this
planet. You really don't know?"
"Well, all I know is that you...or more
accurately, the symbiote the Tok'ra
placed inside of you...congratulations,
by the way...walked off undetected in
the middle of the night and came here."
"I can't believe I actually let them
put a snake in my head...my head. I
agreed to this."
"It never shared with you why it would
walk alone into a heavily fortified
"There was no sharing! I was sick."
"They did the implantation...a word
I intend never to use again...and I
woke up here. That's...my week, so far."
"So you really don't know..."
"Uhh...something to do with one of Ba'al's
slaves...I got a visual but I've never
met her before."
"Nobody knows you're here." (Jack mouths
"what?") "Even if they did, they'd never
be able to pull off a rescue because
this place is a fortress. Ba'al is just
gonna keep on torturing you to death
and reviving you in a sarcophagus until...he
finds out what he wants, which is impossible
because you don't know anything...or
until you're not worth reviving any
more. But you'll cease to be the Jack
O'Neill we know long before that."
"Well...apparently, I've got a big day
"No, I'm not gonna let that happen.
I won't let him destroy you."
"You just said you couldn't help."
"No, I can't stop Ba'al from torturing
you any more than Oma could heal my
radiation sickness, but...I can help
Hammond descends the stairs from his office to the briefing room
to join SG-1 and Thoran.
"You're underlings will not allow me
"My officers and enlisted personnel
are following my direct orders."
"This Jaffa threatened my life."
"I merely informed you that any further
attempt to activate the Stargate would
result in physical injury."
"Then I am a prisoner?"
"I would prefer that you consider yourself
"...And you'll be free to leave as soon
as you provide us with the mission reports
we've requested, under article nine
of our treaty."
"Such a request to the council must
be made in person."
"Why's that? This control facility is
quite capable of relaying a request
on multiple frequencies, including those
used by the Tok'ra."
"Of course, if you choose not to avail
yourself of that capability, we would
be pleased to provide you with comfortable
quarters until you decide to change
"You threaten the peaceful continuation
of relations between our two peoples,
"If our relations continue in the direction
they're going, Councilor...I don't give
All of SG-1 smile politely at Thoran.
"Very well, I will make your request
that the reports be sent here immediately."
Hammond leaves and the looks continue to pass between SG-1 and
"So...you wanna be my Oma?"
"You could put it that way, I mean,
I wouldn't, but maybe that's just me."
"And then what?"
"Then...then I don't know."
"You don't know."
"No...no...ascension doesn't make you
all-knowing. I mean, I really...don't
"If I'm catchin' the next plane of existence
outta here, you gotta give me somethin'."
"It's your journey. No one but you can
choose what you become or the path you
take. All I can promise you is it will
be an amazing journey." (Jack scoffs.)
"Once you release your burden."
"Daniel, so help me, if you start talkin'
"I'm not talking like Oma Desala..."
"Sounds like Oma to me..."
"No, no, no...see Oma would say something
like...uh, uh, "if you know immediately
that the candle is fire then the meal
was cooked a long time ago" or something
"To open your mind..."
"Though a candle burns in my house...there's
"Okay...let's take this one step at
a time. This has to be something you
want. I can't do this for you."
"One step at a time."
"One step at a time."
"Oh, there's gotta be another way outta
"What if you did a little scoutin' for
me...that'd be all right wouldn't it?"
"I'm not askin' you to knock down walls
or anything...just a little recon."
"Ba'al is just gonna torture you again..."
"Or...uh, uh Zat gun...help me get my
hands on a Zat gun."
"The next time is gonna be worse..."
"That's when we move...the next time
they come for me."
"You can't fight your way out of this."
"Then help me!"
"Not that way!" (Sounds of Jaffa approaching
are heard. Daniel looks up toward the
entrance.) "They're coming."
"They can see you, right? We can use
"I'll be back."
"A distraction...that's all I'm askin'
Jack looks up to see the Jaffa at the entrance. When he looks
back to where Daniel had been, he is no longer there. The Jaffa
activate the device on the outer wall and the room changes back
to its original orientation, causing Jack to slam hard to the
new floor. The Jaffa walk in, pick him up off the floor and usher
him out of the cell.
"His motive had to be personal."
"For what reason?"
"Well, the Tok'ra claim that all of
Kanan's spy missions were a complete
success, therefore he'd have no reason
to go back to any of those planets.
If we take them at their word, we can
rule out any logical reason. No, Kanan
had to be motivated by something...profound
enough...to not only risk his life but
also the life of his host.
They contemplate what he has said and then return to looking
at the reports on their computer monitors.
We see a drop of liquid being squeezed from a spout on a bottle.
This drop is horizontal and it quickly is released. It flies
into O'Neill's chest. Jack is once again pinned against the spider
web panel and we can see that liquid has already touched his
chest in several places. He is in obvious distress.
"The Tal'vak acid will take some time
to burn through all the way. Though
it cauterizes the flesh as it burns...a
very small amount often finds it's way
into the blood and begins to spread.
Why have you returned here, Tok'ra?"
"Hmm...betrayed by your symbiote."
"It used me."
"To do what?"
"I don't know! And I don't care!"
"What did the symbiote call itself?"
"I don't remember."
"Tok'ra retain the identities of both
host and symbiote. You are O'Neill.
What was the name of your symbiote?"
"I...just told you."
"What Tok'ra secrets could a single
"I don't know?"
"Why protect the one who betrayed you?...abandoned
"If I knew the name...I'd give you the
damn name! I don't care about protecting
"Tok'ra have been a nuisance for centuries."
"Even when we thought they had been
wiped out. They've become all the more...insidious.
Like acid...burrowing their way into
"Kanan! That's the name."
Ba'al walks over and sets the bottle down. Then he picks up another
and walks back toward the front of the platform.
"I just told you..."
"Yes...you did." (He squirts more liquid
from this bottle and it flies toward
Jack hitting him in the chest. Jack
flinches, but this liquid does not seem
to be causing him any further discomfort.
"This neutralizes the acid and numbs
the pain. So you see, the truth is rewarded."
"I don't know anything else."
"There may be much more of this Kanan
still in your memory than even you know.
It'll come to you...in time."
Ba'al pushes a device on the table where he has placed the bottles.
The web panel opens and Jack falls into a very long, black tunnel.
Jack falls onto the newly reoriented floor, face up, staring
at the Jaffa. The Jaffa walk away and Jack continues to lie there.
Suddenly, he sees the woman sitting at the entrance above his
head again. Jack is rather dazed.
"Is it you?"
"You shouldn't have come back."
"I don't remember..."
"If I leave with you...he will know."
"You..." (While he is laying there we
see a foot come into view.)
"Jack, you are you talking to?"
Daniel looks up at the entrance and the woman's image dematerializes.
"There's nobody there."
"Look who's talking..."
"Does it still hurt?"
"Told you I'd come back."
"If the Daniel Jackson I knew was really
"...then do something." (Daniel squeezes
his eyes shut and drops his head. Jack,
regaining some energy and cognizance,
rolls himself up to stand facing Daniel.)
"You listen to me. I don't wanna go
through that again. If you were really
my friend and had the power to stop
it, you'd stop it!"
"The hardest part of being who or what
I am is having the power to change the
things I want to change and knowing
that I can't..." (Jack gives him a look.)
"Even when I'm certain, even when it's...absolutely
clear to me, even when it affects the
people I care about..." (Jack rolls
his eyes and turns his head to the side.)
"Because for all I can do...I'm no more
qualified to play God than the Goa'uld
are." (Jack continues turning away to
lean into a light panel.) "Ba'al will
keep this up..."
"Yes, he will..."
"So we don't have an unlimited amount
"Gotta be some place, do ya?"
" No. Look, there must be a reason that
Kanan came back here. Was it for the
woman? The one you were just talking
to? She must have something to do with
all of this."
"You know... screw it...it doesn't matter.
Carter and Teal'c'll think of somethin'."
"Even if they could find out where you
"...and you know...Jonas...he's at least
as smart as you."
"There isn't always a way out, Jack."
"Hey, if that was true, I'd a been dead
a long time ago!"
"How many more times do you think you
can go into that sarcophagus before
it starts changing you?" (Jack gives
him an "I don't know" look.) "How many
times has it been already? It can regenerate
your body, make you strong enough to
go through that all over again, but
all the time, it's destroying who you
are...and once that happens...you won't
be able to ascend no matter how much
you want to."
"Hey...I appreciate what you're trying
"I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe
you could do it."
"This is me we're talkin' about!"
"Yes, it is. Now, please...just try...to
open you're mind."
"Oh...stop it, will you?" (Jack sits
down in frustration.)
"Come on, Jack. Y-You think the Asgard
named uh, a ship after you because they
thought it was a cool name? Now's not
the time to play dumb. You're a lot
smarter than that. They saw our potential
in you...because of you are and what
you've done. Humanity's potential...that's
the same thing Oma saw in me."
"I am not you."
"Yeah, when has that ever stopped you
from doing anything?"
"Okay...put yourself in my shoes and
me in yours..."
"You'd be here for me..."
"Damn straight! I'd have busted you
out...blown this rat hole to hell and
made sure that son-of-a-bitch suffered!"
"The Others would have stopped you..."
"They'd have a hell of a fight on their
"You wouldn't do that..."
"Ba'al would be dead..."
"...And don't think I'd stop there!"
"You're a better man than that..."
"That's where you're wrong!"
They stop and stare at each other. After several seconds, Daniel
nods his head, slightly and turns away.
"Right now, I can't imagine doing or
being anything other than what I am.
I see things, I understand things, in
a way I never could have before. But
I chose this. Even when Jacob was trying
to heal me, I chose this. But you in
the place you're at right now...you
don't have any other choices. This is
not your life we're talking about, Jack!
This is your soul! This is it...what
I'm offering you is your only way out."
"You're wrong about that too..." (Daniel
looks at him, narrows his eyes inquisitively.)
"I have another choice." (Daniel closes
his eyes and shakes his head.)
"What are you talking about?" (Jack
looks at him, like" you know." Daniel
shakes his head). "No."
"Any minute, they're gonna come. Ba'al
is gonna kill me again. You can make
it the last time."
"Don't ask me to do that..."
"You can put an end to it..."
"I won't do it..."
They both look up as they hear a door opening down the hall.
"I'd do it for you, and you know it."
Jack walks over and lays with his feet a few inches from the
wall so that when it becomes the floor again, he is ready.
"I don't wanna see this cell again,
The Jaffa reorient the room and enter to take an now solitary
Jack by the arms and usher him out of the cell.
Sam, Teal'c and Jonas are still in a lab. Jonas and Teal'c are
at the monitors, Sam is pacing with a notebook in her hand.
"I don't know about you two, but I'm
beginning to get the feeling there's
absolutely nothing here."
"Wait. Guys...look at this." (She walks
back to her monitor and begins clicking
the mouse to bring up something to show
"What is it?"
"The mission where Kanan worked undercover
as a minor Goa'uld in Ba'al's service...how
long ago was that?"
"Several months...Ba'al has kept the
existence of the outpost hidden from
the other system lords."
"The outpost was a secret test facility
for weapons technology and gravity field
generators. Over a period of several
months he was able to map out the entire
facility, catalog it's defenses..."
"That's what Kanan reported to the Tok'ra
Council...but something just struck
me. He used Ba'al's Lotar, his personal
slave, to access much of that information."
"Yeah, the Lotar gave him access to
Ba'al's chamber when he was away."
"Do you believe Kanan withheld information
in his report?"
"No. But think about it...a Lotar is
a Goa'uld's most trusted servant..."
"Why would he so blithely betray his
"Her master...the slave was a woman."
(Both look at her quizzically.) "Access
to Ba'al's own chamber?"
"Are you suggesting that Kanan engaged
in an affair with this slave in order
to gain access to her master's quarters?"
"Well, something had to be going on
between them, otherwise, why would she
take the risk?"
"A Tok'ra would go to great lengths
to accomplish a mission."
"So, maybe he was just using her...but
who knows. I mean the Tok'ra are a very
"The Tok'ra accept sacrifice as a function
of war. I do not believe this slave
was a sufficient motive for Kanan to
"Sufficient motive for Kanan...the decision
to act came after blending with the
mind of Colonel O'Neill..."
"At which point, he would have been
confronted with every thought and belief
that makes the Colonel who he is and
be forced to judge himself by that same
code of honor."
"Especially what General Hammond referred
to as the difference between us and
A look of realization comes over Teal'c and Sam.
"We don't leave our people behind."
Jack is stuck like a fly on the web again. The Lotar's face comes
very close to his.
"Is it you?"
"You shouldn't be here."
"You look so different. How can you
"If I leave with you, he will know."
"He used both of us..."
The Lotar vanishes.
"He did use both of us. How long were
you host to this Kanan before he convinced
you to come her? Days...or merely hours?"
"I don't remember."
"What did this Kanan share about his
previous mission here?"
"What did he want with my slave?"
"I don't know."
"Why did he return?"
"I don't know."
"I believe you. You're a victim of this
Tok'ra, just as I am. This Kanan took
over his host's body...your body, just
as I or any other Goa'uld would have
done. He used you to come here...but
to what purpose? I believe the answers
are there in your mind. Even if you
were host for a mere matter of hours,
something of him will be left behind.
Huh...an unfortunate inheritance for
you..." (He has walked to the table
and opened a panel in it to reveal the
bottles of acid and the knives. He picks
up a knife.) "...Because, I will find
them...if I have to...dig...them out."
Jack closes his eyes and braces himself.
SGC BRIEFING ROOM
"You're telling me Kanan was compelled
to rescue a slave he encountered months
"As a direct result of blending with
Colonel O'Neill, yes, sir."
"Based on the arrogant notion the Colonel
would never have left her behind."
"Sir, I know from first-hand experience
how deeply the emotions can be shared
between a Tok'ra symbiote and it's host."
"So do I, Major Carter. Still you're
theory seems to be based on nothing
more than intuition."
"I won't argue with that...but it's
not without reasoning. I know that's
where Colonel O'Neill is."
"As do I."
"We're all in agreement."
"It makes no difference. If, indeed,
Colonel O'Neill is in Ba'al's hands,
then he is far beyond our reach."
"We have plans to the outpost."
"Then you know it is a fortress. An
army could not hope to penetrate it."
"Kanan obviously thought it was possible.
Sir, if we went in with a small force...maybe
two SG teams..."

we have on this outpost. A successful
attack of any magnitude is beyond our
We see Jack in the sarcophagus. Then we see him brought back
to his cell. He looks up, wearily, then puts his forhead to the
wall before slowly sliding down the wall to sit with his back
to the wall, cross-legged.
We see Teal'c meditating, surrounded by candles. Suddenly his
eyes pop open. Next we are in General Hammond's office. Hammond
is at his desk, we hear a knock on the door.
"Teal'c. What is it?"
"I have been meditating on the possibility
of rescuing Colonel O'Neill..."
"I've just been going over the plans
to the outpost again, myself...I just
don't see how we have any chance of
success against a fortress this well
defended, no matter how big the force."
"Agree. I believe it would take the
power of a Goa'uld mothership to do
"Unfortunately, we don't have one of
"Perhaps not...but there are many system
lords that do."
Hammond looks at him, pensively.
Jack is being tortured again.
"What was it's name?"
"There...you remember his name. What
was his mission?"
"Was it to steal the slave from me?"
"I don't know."
"Did Kanan believe a slave could know
my secrets? There's something else you're
hiding from me." (He points a knife
at Jack, but remains seated on the bench).
"I sense it. I feel it."
"When are you gonna end this?"
"If you tell me what I wish to know,
I will end this."
"You're mind is beginning to fail. It's
time for the sarcophagus, but as you
regain the strength to return here,
consider this....hmmph...it will be
far worse next time"
Hammond joins SG-1 in the control room.
"Councilor Thoran is threatening to
end diplomatic relations..."
"What did he say?"
"Among other things I won't mention,
that this is precisely the reason they
have been reluctant to share intelligence."
"So be it."
"That's more or less what I said. The
Tok'ra need us right now, more than
we need them. Do we expect any response
from Lord Yu?"
"No, sir. We know he received the plans
to Ba'al's outpost and the message that
went along with it, but we have no way
of knowing if he'll act on it."
"I believe he will. Ba'al has kept the
existence of this outpost from the other
"I still don't understand how destroying
the power generators first is going
to help the Colonel."
"It will give O'Neill a fighting chance,
Jack looks up.
Jack sighs and looks straight ahead.
"You were gone."
"I know, I'm sorry, there was something
I had to do, but, I'm back now and I
promise I'll stay with you 'til this
"It'll never be over..."
"Yes, it will."
"Daniel...you have to end this."
"Jack, you just have to hang in there
a little while longer..."
"No...I can't go back in there. If I
go back, I swear to God, I'll give Ba'al
what he wants, I'll tell him."
"That he loved her."
"He came back for her. He wanted to
"Ba'al doesn't know this..."
"If he finds out, he'll do to her what
he's doing to me. Daniel, if you don't
end this...I'll tell him."
"You won't have to...it's almost over
Jack." (Jack turns to look at him for
the first time.)
"You were right. There's always a way
out...at least there's always a chance.
You're journey isn't over, Jack, not
"What'd you do?"
"I didn't do anything...it was, um,
Sam and Teal'c...and, uh, Jonas, too."
"They thought of something..."
There is the sound of an explosion and the lights flicker in
his cell. Daniel stands up from his kneeling position and walks
to where Jacks is standing, looking up.
"This is it. All you ever wanted was
a fighting chance, Jack, now you have
it. If anyone can make it out of here,
"Lord Yu attacks!"
The rooms starts to change orientation and Jack looks down to
discover that Daniel is no longer there. He prepares himself
and transitions his positions as the wall becomes the floor again.
Hearing no reponse and seeing the lights flickering around him,
he decides to try walking out of the cell. He walks right out
and then sees a Jaffa approaching. Jack attacks the Jaffa with
ferocity and overpowers him. He grabs the Jaffa's Zat and then
makes his way through the halls to the Lotar's cell. She backs
away, frightened, when she sees him approach.
"Come with me."
"No. He'll stop us."
They begin running through the halls together.
WE SEE JACK'S HEAD SILHOUETTED AGAINST BRIGHT WHITE LIGHTS REMINISCENT
OF THE SARCOPHAGUS, BUT AS THE CAMERA PULLS BACK, WE SEE THAT
JACK IS ON A BED IN THE SGC INFIRMARY AND THE LIGHT WAS FROM
SOME SORT OF MEDICAL INSTRUMENT. SAM, TEAL'C AND JONAS ARE AT
THE FOOT OF HIS BED, TALKING AS MEDICAL PERSONNEL ARE MOVING
AROUND. JACK IS REGAINING CONSCIOUSNESS AND OVERHEARS THE OTHERS
"Dr. Fraiser says he'll probably suffer
withdrawal symptons from so much time
in a sarcophagus, but otherwise she
expects a full recovery."
"What happened to the woman he went
"Her name's Shallan. She decided to
stay with the Tok'ra."
"So she may continue Kanan's fight in
"Hey...I'm tryin' to sleep here."
"Sorry, sir...glad to see you're okay."
"Listen...was a good idea you had there."
"Actually, sir...we all contributed
to it." (She walks around to the side
of the bed). "Do you need anything or..."
She walks toward the others, smiling. She touches Teal'c's arm
as she walks behind him to go through the door. Teal'c and Jonas
follow her out. The camera then moves back closer to Jack's bed
and we see Daniel standing there.
"I always seem to be saying good bye
"Yeah, I noticed that. Why don't you
stick around for a while?"
"You just did."
"Ground Hog's Day?"
"I've got my journey, you've got yours?"
"Something like that, yeah. Look, I
know you don't think so...right now,
I mean I know you have your doubts,
but uh...because you've been through
something that no one should have to
go through...I guess what I'm trying
to say is...you're gonna be all right."
"How do you know?"
"You're just gonna have to trust me."
"I can do that." (Daniel smiles a little
and nods). "You gonna be okay?"
"I'm gonna be fine."
The door opens and Sam walks in. As the camera follows her to
the bedside, we see Daniel is gone.
"Here you go, sir."
