               ELEVATOR

               
               Sam swipes her card and the doors open. Jonas is inside and flirting 
               with a nurse. She gets out as Sam gets in.
 
               
                                     RUSH
                         Iím sure Iíll see you again.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Hey. With any luck Iíll get sick.

               
               The elevator doors close.

               
                                     CARTER
                         With any luck, Iíll get sick?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Lieutenant Rush is a nurse. She works 
                         in the infirmary.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         So you were flirting?

               
               The doors open.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Iím thinking of asking her out.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Then you should.

               
                                     JONAS
                         In Kelowna, itís common for that request 
                         to be passed on by a friend.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Oh it is not.

               
                                     JONAS
                         You could at least find out for me if 
                         sheíd be receptive.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Jonas, you are such a chickenshit.
 
                         
               
               The alarms go off.

                         I am Alebran.

                         Alebran has vital information regarding 
                         the goaíuld Nirrti.

                         What about her?

                         She is experimenting on my people. Transforming 
                         us.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         I knew you would want to know what Nirrti 
                         was doing to these people. Since it 
                         was you who allowed her to go free.

                         Olí Sergei brought this guy back from

                                     HAMMOND
                         Youíd better have a damn good reason.

                         General, Sir. Alebran and his people 
                         are innocent victims of the Nirrti. 
                         I felt certain you would wish to act.

                         It is nothing that I cannot endure. 
                         Please, I must know if you will help 
                         my people.

                         Sir, with your permission, Iíd like 
                         to take him to isolation room 3.

                         Very well.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Come with me.

               
               ISOLATION ROOM 3

               
               Everyone is round the bed.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         We found him near the Stargate after 
                         we performed a recon of Nirrtiís fortress. 
                         Or I should say, he found us. Alebran 
                         has asked for our help to save his people 
                         being held prisoner inside.
 
               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         I thought that she was helping us. Then 
                         I saw one of my people die in such a 
                         horrible way I realised... When I questioned 
                         her methods, she released me.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         She let you go.

               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         I was well enough to return home she 
                         said. When I arrived back in the village, 
                         everyone was dead. She lied to us. Those 
                         of us she took away, we were the last 
                         of our people. She was using us.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You look okay to me.

               
                                     ALBRAN
                         Please, do not be fooled by my appearance. 
                         I spent just as much time within the 
                         machine as the others. I know that I 
                         have been changed inside; I am not like 
                         I was before.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What kind of machine?

               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         Itís one that sees inside of us. It 
                         allows her to manipulate that which 
                         we are made of.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         If heís talking about some sort of machine 
                         that can directly alter human DNA in 
                         real time...
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         You believe Nirrti is attempting to 
                         create a hokítaur.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         I am not familiar with that term.

               
                                     JONAS
                         It means advanced human.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Nirrti is most interested in creating 
                         the perfect human host in order to increase 
                         her power.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         So, sheís at it again.

               
                                     CARTER
                         No, Sir. This is worse.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Samís right. Up till now, Nirrtiís been 
                         using eugenics. Like with Cassandraís 
                         people, selectively breeding only those 
                         that demonstrated specific genetic attributes.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         With a machine that can alter DNA and 
                         a population with which to experiment, 
                         Nirrti could create a new host or even 
                         alter the DNA of her current one.

                         A Goaíuld with the powers of a hokítaur.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Obviously we canít let that happen.
 
                         
               
                                     EVANOV
                         As you know, Nirrti does not have the 
                         power and resources of the other Goaíuld. 
                         She has only a small number of jaffa 
                         in her service. I believe her capture 
                         or if necessary her assassination is 
                         quite possible.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Sir?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Agreed.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Can you get us in that fortress?

               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         No. I cannot go back.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Weíre offering to help your people Alebran.
 
                         
               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         No, there is no time. I feel it, somethingís 
                         happening.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         Alebran believes Nirrti has the power 
                         to kill him even here.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well what if she does?

                         Cassandra.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         General, we need to find out if Alebran 
                         has a device similar to the one Nirrti 
                         placed in Cassandra.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You mean like a bomb?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Go.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Letís get him into x-ray. Letís move.
 
                         
               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         No, itís too late.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Breathe deeply. Letís go. Take it easy.
 
                         
               
               They wheel him out.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         What is happening?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Several years ago, Nirrti placed a naquadah 
                         device inside a young girl in order 
                         to destroy the SGC.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         My team can take him back through the 
                         Stargate.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No. These devices are designed to detonate 
                         in close proximity to the Stargate.
 
                         
               
                                     ALBRAN
                         You have to kill me.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Just take it easy.

               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         Kill me. Kill me now!

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Give him a sedative. 2ccís valium.
 
                         
               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         Please someone tell me what is happening?
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Alebran, we need to take a chest x-ray.
 
                         
               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         No!

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Get him down.

               
                                     ALEBRAN
                         No! Please kill me! Arrggghh!

               
               He starts spitting up water.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Everybody get back!

               
               Jack grabs a gun off an SF and Alebran stops breathing and disintegrates 
               into nothing. Water cascades off the trolley.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         (Not sure what he says here)

               
                                     JONAS
                         What happened?

               
               Janet just looks at him.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This is Hammond. I want a hazmat team 
                         to Level 22 elevators immediately.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Itís like every cell in his body just 
                         broke down.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Nirrti must have written some kind of 
                         time delay right into his DNA.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Thereís nothing we could have done,

               CORRIDOR

               
               Hammond is walking along with Jack and Evanov.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel, how soon can your team be ready?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Right away, Sir. Iíd like to take SG3 
                         with me as back up.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Very well.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Allow my team to join SG1, General.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I donít think so, Sergei.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not so fast Colonel.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Sir?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Lieutenant Colonel Evanovís team has 
                         gathered valuable intelligence that 
                         could be useful to you.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         My team has scouted the entire area. 
                         I can get you right inside Nirrtiís 
                         fortress.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Fine. Get geared up.

               
               Evanov salutes.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Thank you.

               
               He walks off.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         General.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Like it or not a Russian team is operating 
                         out of the SGC. Iíve been asked to integrate 
                         them more fully into our own operations.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Does it have to be with my team?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Lieutenant Colonel Evanov is a fine 
                         officer. Iím sure youíll agree. Youíll 
                         be in command.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes sir. Iíll remind him of that.

               
               ALEBRANíS PLANET

               
               SG1 and the Russian team come through the Gate.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         So this is the path leading to the fortress. 
                         Guarded by jaffa.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Not many.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Only ten.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         All right. Evanov, youíre with us.
 
                         
               
                                     EVANOV
                         (Not sure what he says here, itís Russian)
 
                         
               
               The rest of his team stay at the Gate.

               
               FOREST

               
               Jack and Tealíc lead the way up an incline, followed by Evanov, 
               Carter and Jonas. They stop and see jaffa.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Theyíre well positioned.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíre gonna need a diversion. Carter, 
                         Jonas, thatís you.
 
               
               They move out. Sam plants some C4 under the wall the jaffa are 
               defending as does Jonas. Tealíc and Evanov move through the undergrowth.
 
               
               
               Sam detonates the explosives. The jaffa move to plain sight at 
               the front of the wall. The team starts firing.
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         Kree Jaffa!

               
               The jaffa guarding one of the big weapons is taken out by Tealíc 
               and he takes over firing at the jaffa.
 
               
               One jaffa tries to run.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Colonel! (Over his radio)

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I got him.

               
               Jack takes him out with a single shot.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Evanov, stay out here for now. Watch 
                         our six. (Over radio)
 
               
                                     EVANOV

                         Please, donít hurt us.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Weíre not here to hurt anyone. Weíve 
                         come here to rescue you. Take you from 
                         this place.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         No, no, we cannot leave.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         One step at a time, Jonas. Whereís Nirrti?
 
                         
               
                                     WODEN
                         She is not here.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Are you expecting her back?

               
                                     WODEN
                         Of course. For our treatment.

               
                                     JONAS
                         My name is Jonas.

               
                                     WODEN
                         I am Woden.

               
               He lowers his hood and we see he has been mutated and has an 
               eye on the side of his head.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Weíve come from a place called Earth. 
                         To help, all of you.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         That is not necessary. Nirrti is helping 
                         us.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Excuse me?

               
                                     WODEN
                         She cares for us. Nirrti is our God.
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Nirrti is of a race called the Goaíuld.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Theyíre parasitical beings that use 
                         our kind as hosts.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         We are very ill. Nirrti is curing us 
                         of our sickness.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         That is most unlikely.

               
                                     WODEN
                         When the God Nirrti came, a great plague 
                         had befallen our people. We were dying. 
                         With the machine, Nirrti has kept us 
                         alive.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         (To Carter) Check it out. (To Woden) 
                         Donít take this wrong friend, if this 
                         is cured....
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         My brother Alebran once looked as I 
                         do now. In time she will make him whole 
                         again.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Alebran you say?

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Your brother is dead.

               
                                     WODEN
                         Nirrti allowed him to return to our 
                         village.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Thereís no one left alive at your village. 
                         Alebran told us himself.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         Whh....

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Might have been a different Alebran. 
                         Itís a popular name. The point is, we 
                         need to know when and where Nirrtiís 
                         coming back
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         Very soon. And when she comes she will 
                         punish you.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Your people were never sick. Nirrtiís 
                         been lying to you.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         No. No, the plague ravaged our people 
                         long before she came. Our village was 
                         almost wiped out.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         It is possible she discovered them in 
                         this condition and took advantage of 
                         their situation.
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         She brought me to this place. She gave 
                         me back my life.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You said Nirrti would be returning for 
                         your treatments? What would happen if 
                         you didnít get them?
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         We would die.

               
                                     EGAR
                         We must receive treatment by tomorrow.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Their mutations might be unstable.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         So what happened to Alebran will most 
                         likely happen to them too if they donít 
                         go back in that machine.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, this is an incredibly advanced 
                         piece of technology. My guess is that 
                         it was built by the Ancients.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Can you figure it out?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Not by tomorrow. Maybe with a few days 
                         and a lot of help. Weíre gonna need 
                         Nirrti, Sir.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah. Figure out what you can. Iím gonna 
                         go brief Evanov. Jonas, Tealíc, take 
                         these fine folks somewhere where they 
                         can be comfortable for a while.
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         He intends to kill her.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         What?

               
                                     EGAR
                         You are planning to kill Nirrti.

               
                                     WODEN
                         Are you certain, Egar?

               
                                     EGAR
                         Yes, even now...

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No. First I intend to ask her in the 
                         nicest possible way to undo what sheís 
                         done to you folks. Youíre just gonna 
                         have to trust me. We came here to help 
                         you.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         Only because you believe you are responsible 
                         for what has happened to us.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Do what you can. (To Carter)

               
               OUTSIDE THE FORTRESS

               
               Jack walks up to Evanov.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Colonel.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Nirrtiís not home.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         She must have left while we were on 
                         Earth.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well apparently sheís coming back. I 
                         want to set up an ambush.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         I will inform my men.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Your team will be our back up. And we 
                         have to take her alive. Right now sheís 
                         the only one who knows how to run that 
                         machine in there.
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         Very well.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         By the way, did you talk to any of the 
                         people in there other than Alebran?
 
                         
               
                                     EVANOV
                         No. Why?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Probably nothing. Iíll relieve you in 
                         two hours.
 
               
               UNDERGROUND CAGES

               
               Woden and Egar lead Tealíc and Jonas down some steps to a sort 
               of living area.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         This is where you sleep?

               
                                     WODEN
                         Yes.

               
               He then raises his hand and the bars to a cage rise up.

               
                                     JONAS
                         How did you..?

               
                                     EGAR
                         We cannot allow you to harm Nirrti.
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC
                         We have no quarrel with your people. 
                         But I must insist you enter this cage.
 
                         
               
               Woden motions towards Tealíc and Jonas and their weapons fly 
               out of their hands. They go for their side arms and he does the 
               same to them. They try to rush him and he holds them back. He 
               then knocks them to the floor and pushes them into the cages.
 
               
               
                                     WODEN
                         And I must insist the same of you.
 
                         
               
               He lowers the bars and rips their radios off.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Woden, youíre making a mistake.

               
                                     WODEN
                         No, it is you who has made the mistake, 
                         Jonas. She is coming.
 
               
               NIRRTIíS FORTRESS

               
               Sam is looking at the machine.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Jonas, Iím already stymied here; I could 
                         really use your help. (On radio) Jonas? 
                         Colonel, Jonas isnít responding on his 
                         radio.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Understood. Jonas, Tealíc? Evanov, this 
                         is SG1 niner. Come in. Carter, stay 
                         put, Iím on my way.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes sir.

               
               Sam moves away from the machine. She hears the rings come up 
               and zats the two jaffa who have ringed in. She goes over to them 
               and picks up oneís zat gun and is zatted herself. Nirrti then 
               appears.
 
               
               Jack comes round the corner, P90 raised. He sees Nirrti holding 
               an unconscious Sam with a zat to her head.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Iím sure youíre aware that a second 
                         shot from this weapon will kill.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         This weapon kills on the first shot.
 
                         
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Then why havenít you already fired?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Because I need you alive.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         You?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah I know, itís kinda hard to believe. 
                         But I need you to help these people.
 
                         
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I am helping them.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, I can see that.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Appearances can be deceiving, Colonel 
                         OíNeill.
 
               
               One of the jaffa sits up and raises his staff weapon at Jack. 
               Jack shoots him and the bullet is stopped in mid air by Woden. 
               It falls to the ground.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Now, as I said.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah.

               
               Jack puts down his weapon and Nirrti zats him.

               
               PRISON

               
               Jack is lying on a bed.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I really, really donít like that woman.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes sir.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         OíNeill.

               
               Jonas just waves.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         This is an unpleasant surprise.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

               
               Jack gets up and checks the bars.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Wodenís telekinetic. Took our weapons 
                         right out of our hands just by thinking 
                         it.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Nirrti is clearly progressing in her 
                         attempt to create a hokítaur.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Maybe weíre too late?

               
                                     CARTER
                         No, these genetic manipulations are 
                         unstable. Sheís not there yet.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Egarís telepathic. He did know Colonel 
                         OíNeill intended on killing Nirrti.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         That was not my intention.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Who knows what abilities these others 
                         possess? I mean, enhanced senses, superhuman 
                         strength.
 
               
               Jack gets up and talks to the other prisoners.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey folks, how you doing? Jack OíNeill, 
                         Earth. Listen; originally we came here 
                         to rescue you. But as you can see weíve 
                         run into a bit of a snag. So if any 
                         of you can bend steel with your bare 
                         hands or happen to be more powerful 
                         than a locomotive, just raise your hand. 
                         Identify yourselves. Let us know where 
                         you are.
 
               
               Everyone ignores him and walks off.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Must not know what a locomotive is.
 
                         
               
               Woden and Egar come in with Evanov.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Woodman, buddy. Listen, I think weíre 
                         dealing with a bit of a misunderstanding 
                         here.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you really think Nirrti will keep 
                         you alive with these powers after sheís 
                         finished her experiments? Sheís using 
                         you.
 
               
               They throw Evanov in Jack and Samís cell. They drag him to a 
               bed.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whatíd she do to him?

               
                                     WODEN
                         You are next. (pointing at Sam)

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Ah, I think Iím next.

               
                                     WODEN
                         Nirrti has asked for this one.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         And Iím asking for you to take me instead...
 
                         
               
                                     WODEN
                         No!

               
               He pushes Jack back.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         All right look. If you really can see 
                         in my mind, you know we came here to 
                         help you.
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         I did sense that when you first arrived. 
                         But when I looked deeper into our mind 
                         I realised you would sacrifice us all 
                         if necessary to destroy Nirrti.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís not true.

               
                                     EGAR
                         You cannot lie to me. Come!

               
                                     CARTER
                         At least Iíll find out how the machine 
                         works.
 
               
               Woden lowers the bars.

               
               NIRRTIíS CHAMBER

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Major Carter. I am pleased to have such 
                         an excellent subject. I might even consider 
                         you for my new host.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Over my dead body.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         True, that is far more likely. Now, 
                         step inside.
 
               
               Sam steps onto the machine. Nirrti activates and it looks like 
               DNA strands swirling round Sam.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Now, letís see what youíre made of.
 
                         
               
               Sam looks in pain.

               
               PRISON

               
               Jonas is pacing, Jack and Tealíc are sitting down.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Colonel. Iím sorry. I should never have 
                         allowed myself to be captured.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Did you get a message off to your team?
 
                         
               
                                     EVANOV
                         I tried. But my radio..

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yanked right out of your hand?

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Yes. And at the same moment I was struck 
                         by a zatínikítel that appeared from 
                         nowhere. My team would follow their 
                         standing orders to return to base if 
                         we were out of contact for this long.
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Perhaps General Hammond will send reinforcements?
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hopefully it wonít come to that. What 
                         they do to you up there?
 
               
                                     EVANOV
                         I donít know for how long I was in the 
                         machine for what she did but something 
                         is different.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíll get out of this.

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Where is Major Carter?

               
               NIRRTIíS CHAMBER

               
               Sam is still in the machine. Nirrti switches it off and Sam collapses. 
               Egar catches her.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Enough. She has served her purpose. 
                         Bring me the one called Jonas.
 
               
               They drag Sam off.

               
               PRISON

               
               Woden and Egar bring Sam back and lift the bars. They shove Sam 
               in where Jack catches her.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter. Come on.

               
               They lower the bars and walk round to Jonas. Jack lays Sam on 
               the bed.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey fellas! Want to do me a favour. 
                         Go on back, let her know that Iím next, 
                         you should pick me.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         Her will is my command.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, well, thereís your mistake right 
                         there.
 
               
               Woden raises the bars of Jonasí cell. Tealíc appears to be kelínoíreeming.
 
               
               
                                     EGAR
                         Jonas.

               
               Jonas walks out and rushes Egar. Tealíc jumps up and goes for 
               Woden. Woden manages to lower the bars and throws Tealíc backwards. 
               Jonas lifts his fist to hit Egar and Woden stops him.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         You didnít see that coming, did you?
 
                         
               
               Woden throws Jonas down.

               
                                     WODEN
                         Do not attempt that again.

               
               They take Jonas away. Jack sits next to Sam.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You made it through. Youíre gonna be 
                         all right.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No sir, I donít think I am.

               
               NIRRTIíS CHAMBER

               
               Jonas walks in.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         We have not met.

               
                                     JONAS
                         No, but I have heard a lot about you.
 
                         
               
               Nirrti looks at Egar. He lowers his eyes.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         You are not human.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Iím human. Iím just not from Earth. 
                         A Goaíuld like yourself took my ancestors 
                         from Earth thousands of years ago and 
                         enslaved them.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Sadly it was not I.

               
               She activates the machine. Jonas does not look in pain.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Those few thousand years on another 
                         world have changed you more than you 
                         know.
 
               
               PRISON

               
               Evanov is coughing.

               
                                     CARTER
                         You in pain?

               
                                     EVANOV
                         Something is happening. I can feel it. 
                         Is there water?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíll ask.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Try to rest.

               
               Sam sits up.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         I have been attempting to communicate 
                         with the other prisoners. But they also 
                         believe Nirrti is a God. They will not 
                         listen.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Heís in pretty bad shape.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         He appears to be suffering the same 
                         symptoms as Alebran.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         We got to get to that guy... whatís his 
                         name?
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Woden.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No the other one.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Egar.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah. I mean if he can read my mind, 
                         why canít he read Nirrtiís?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         He canít read minds all the time or 
                         he would have known Jonas was gonna 
                         jump him.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Perhaps he is afraid to look into the 
                         mind of one he perceives as a God.
 
                         
               
               Sam winces in pain.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         What?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Nothing, Iím fine.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Get some rest. Thatís an order.

               
               Sam looks at Tealíc, who nods and turns away. Sam then puts her 
               head on Jackís shoulder.
 
               
               They then hear Evanov spitting up water. They turn to see him 
               turn to water.
 
               
               NIRRTIíS FORTRESS.

               
               Jonas appears to be asleep. He wakes up.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Why did you bring me here?

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Because you are different.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Howís that?

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         You are much closer than the others. 
                         With my help you could complete the 
                         transformation.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         And end up looking like those others?
 
                         
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         No. I assure you. You must know, that 
                         you are capable of much more than the 
                         petty tasks that life among the Tauíri 
                         can offer.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I like my life the way it is.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I could make you more powerful than 
                         you could imagine. Powers you have seen 
                         in Woden and the others. Only a fraction 
                         of what I could give you.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well that is definitely the most interesting 
                         offer Iíve had in a very long time. 
                         But you canít risk giving me those kind 
                         of powers unless youíre certain I wonít 
                         use them against you.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Once I share those powers we could rule 
                         the galaxy together.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         What about everyone else?

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         They are not necessary.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, I can only imagine what it would 
                         be like to have powers like that. What 
                         would I do? I guess the first thing 
                         I would do would be to free my friends 
                         and all those other people you have 
                         caged up down there. And then I would 
                         destroy you. Not necessarily in that 
                         order but you get the idea.
 
               
               Nirrti throws him off the bed.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Take him away and bring OíNeill. Once 
                         you have seen what has already happened 
                         to the others perhaps you will change 
                         your mind.
 
               
               Her eyes glow.

               
               PRISON

               
               Jonas is brought back.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Evanov?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Dead. Just like Alebran. Yeah thatís 
                         right, Nirrti killed your brother. Go 
                         ahead; take a look in my mind if you 
                         donít believe me. Better yet, look into 
                         Nirrtiís head.
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         That is forbidden.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         No kidding.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Because sheís hiding something

               
                                     EGAR
                         She is a God. She would know.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         She would not know because she is not 
                         a God.
 
               
               Woden raises the bars on Jack and Samís cage.

               
                                     WODEN
                         OíNeill is next.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Look, she just killed a good man. Sheís 
                         gonna do the same thing to the rest 
                         of us.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Together youíre stronger than she is, 
                         you just donít realise it.
 
               
               Woden pulls Jack towards the bars and lowers them after he has 
               walked through.
 
               
               CORRIDOR IN NIRRTIíS FORTRESS

               
               Jack is walking ahead.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You know, youíre right. I did want to 
                         kill her. But if youíd look into her 
                         mind for a split second, youíd want 
                         to do the same thing for what sheís 
                         done to your people.
 
               
               Jack walk into the main chamber.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         You should not have come here OíNeill.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Can you undo what youíve done to Carter?
 
                         
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         If I choose to.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I let you go once. We made a deal, I 
                         honoured it.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I told you then I would not have done 
                         the same.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Fix what youíve done to Carter, let 
                         the rest of my team go, thatís all I 
                         ask. You can do whatever you want to 
                         me.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Yes, Colonel. I can.

               
               She activates the machine. Jack looks at Egar. Egar reads Nirrtiís 
               mind.
 
               
                                     EGAR
                         Stop! What he says is true.

               
                                     WODEN
                         My brother?

               
                                     EGAR
                         She murdered him. She has murdered hundreds 
                         of our people. And she intends to do 
                         the same to us.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Jaffa, kree!

               
               The jaffa raise their staff weapons but Woden motions them away 
               and kills the jaffa.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I command you!

               
               Woden lifts Nirrti off the ground as if he has his hands round 
               her neck.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Woden..

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Stop.

               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I am your God.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         We need her alive. Woden, sheís the 
                         only one who can help your people.
 
                         
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         I can make you more powerful than your 
                         wildest dreams.
 
               
               Woden snaps her neck and her eyes glow as the symbiote dies.
 
               
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Why did you do that?

               
                                     WODEN
                         She deserves to die.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         She was Carterís only chance.

               
                                     EGAR
                         Not so OíNeill. Before she died, I looked 
                         into Nirrtiís mind and took what I needed. 
                         Hurry, while there is still time.
 
                         
               
               PRISON

               
               Woden lifts the bars on Tealíc and Jonasí cage and then on Samís. 
               Jack runs in to Sam who looks very wet.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir.

               
               Jack picks her up.

               
               MACHINE CHAMBER

               
               Sam is in the machine. It switches off.

               
                                     EGAR
                         It is done. You are as you were before.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Thank you

               
               Jack goes to help Sam off the platform.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes, thank you.

               
                                     WODEN
                         We can all be as we were before now 
                         that you have shown us the truth.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hail Dorothy. The Wicked Witch is dead. 
                         (off their looks) Itís a movie, Margaret 
                         Hamilton.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Point is, with Nirrti gone you can get 
                         back to your lives, rebuild your village.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         We can help you out with food and supplies, 
                         get you back on track.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Once we get to know each other a little 
                         better, Iíd really like a chance to 
                         study this machine.
 
               
                                     WODEN
                         As soon as we have made our people whole 
                         again, we intend to destroy it.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         But this is an incredibly advanced piece 
                         of technology.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter, donít you think it would be 
                         for the best?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes, sir. I guess it would.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         To Oz. (Off their looks) Part of that 
                         movie.
 
               
               SG1 walk off and Woden enters the machine. Egar activates it 
               to restore Woden.
 
               
               THE END
