"PAST AND PRESENT"
Tor Alexander Valenza
Alien Planet We see the Stargate activate. It appears this 'gate
is in some kind of building. The setting is very dark and there
are ropes attached to the 'gate, presumably to steady it. The
wormhole is established and SG-1 steps through.
"Anybody get the feeling these folks
don't do a lot of travelling?"
"Well they might not even know what
the 'gate is. I mean...ah, maybe it's
some sort of artefact to them."
"It's possible. I mean, you could stand
here for months pressing symbols and
still not find a combination that opens
We see two backlit figures approach through the windows of a
All of SG-1 are alerted by Teal'c's warning and take positions
behind objects. They are hidden from those entering the 'gate
room. The door is at the top of a stairway which would seem to
indicate that the 'gate room is a basement.
"There wasn't any explosion."
"I'm telling you I heard something.
It was a big..."
"A big what?"
"W-where did you come from? How did
you get in here?"
"Door was open. Is there anyone around
here who might be considered...in charge?"
"Uh, me. Show me your papers."
The rest of SG-1 has now joined O'Neill.
"We don't have any papers. We're travellers,
we've come to meet you."
"Actually, I meant your people. I'm
Daniel, this is Major Carter and Jack
O'Neill and Teal'c."
"Who'd give you a name like Teal'c?"
"It was given by my father. It means
"You remember your father?"
"For as long as I draw breath."
"Then...you could not have been here
at the time of the Vorlix."
"Vorlix...that doesn't ring a bell."
"It was the day that all we know of
ourselves was taken away."
"We can only remember the day since
the Vorlix. Before that...nothing."
-- Opening Credits --
"Well, I still don't detect anything
out of the ordinary, Sir. And neither
did the MALP. I think we're okay."
"Well the MALP is worthless. You, I'll
"You needn't worry, friend. Ke'ra says
that whatever it was that caused the
Vorlix, came and went a year ago."
"At least a year. More."
"In the first days after the Vorlix
there was panic and confusion. It's
hard to be exactly precise."
"So you all just woke up one day and
didn't know who you were. How does that
"My first memory after the Vorlix was
of running in the streets, as though
for my life. She was running right there
beside me. Whoever she is."
"Seems like some kind of mass amnesia,
"It happened to a friend of mine during
the Gulf War. Her chopper went down
and she was knocked out. When she came
to, her memories and identity before
the crash were gone."
"So, everybody on this planet took a
hit to the head?"
"Well, no, Sir. I'm not sure what could
cause something like amnesia on this
"I have never before encountered such
"All of our elders are missing as well."
"You remember elders?"
"Well, no, but there are photographs
of them in every house."
"The children are gone too."
"If we ever had children."
"Well, we weren't grown on trees. We
came from somewhere."
"Then why have we photographs of the
elders and none of the children, hmm?
Answer me that. Daft. But if you do
have any information we could use, you
must seek Ke'ra."
"That's the second time you've mentioned
"You don't know who Ke'ra is?"
"She is Minister of Health, Science
and Restructuring in the Vias Transitional
"We're all busy."
"Well, we would be lost without her...and
you know it."
"You needn't flatter the woman when
she isn't even in the room."
All head up the stairs that Orner and the woman descended earlier.
We see the exterior of the building and now know that it is made
of brick. We see several concrete and glass buildings in the
background. There is thick black smoke coming from smoke stacks.
"I'll take them. You go home."
"Well, don't expect supper."
"I never do."
She walks away, looking a bit huffy. SG-1 and Orner walk off
screen in the opposite direction, toward the camera.
Vias - a hospital We see a woman dabbing at her forehead with
a cloth. Then we see a man, wrapped in a blanket, sitting in
an old-fashioned wheel chair, being pushed by a woman. Everything
here seem to be set in our early industrial revolution era. The
woman pushes the man by Ke'ra. She is kneeling down, tending
to another woman who is sitting on a bench in the hall. The woman
is having trouble breathing. Orner and SG- 1 pass the man in
the wheelchair as they approach.
"Ke'ra, there are some people here who
want to see you..."
"They will have to wait for the moment,
Orner." (Then to the woman she is attending)
"Does that help?"
"No. I can't breath."
"Those with allergies to foods can't
"Well it looks like she's going into
Carter starts looking through her vest as Ke'ra puts something
in a mortar and crushes it with a pestle. Then she dips a cloth
in the mortar and holds in under the woman's nose.
"Breath now. There. Better?"
"Yes. Thank you."
Sam stops searching as she realizes Ke'ra has already taken care
of the woman's difficulty.
"Rest here a while. Orner, you were
about to introduce your friends."
"They are travellers, Ke'ra, from far
" can see that."
"Uh...O'Neill, Carter, Daniel and Teal'c."
"So, I'm guessing you were, or are,
"It seems to be that before the Vorlix
I helped others. That is all that I
sense. Are you?"
"A doctor? No. Well, yes...um, I'm a
doctor of archaeology. I study the past."
"Then you are a most welcome visitor
"They were not here at the time of the
"You've done absolutely the right thing
in bringing them here, Orner. Thank
you." (Orner takes the hint and leaves.)
"He fervently believes that we are husband
and wife and that we need not wait until
we regain our memories in order to renew
our relationship. Perhaps you can help
us. Please, follow me."
"This room has all the knowledge and
research we've been able to recover
since the Vorlix. I've spent every waking
hour in here, reading, searching, dispensing
whatever useful information I find.
If you were able to help us, I know
our people would be eternally grateful."
"You seem to have everything under control."
"On the contrary, Sir, we're falling
apart. Industry and agriculture on Vias
has come to a halt. And when winter
comes, it will be disastrous. Nothing
less. You're not from Vias."
"What gave us away?"
"Whatever agent that caused the Vorlix
is gone, but its effects were pandemic.
If you know who you are, then you cannot
be of this world."
"Oh. Well you know that big round ring
thing you got stashed in a warehouse
down the road?"
:So, it is a transportation device."
"So it is."
"We call it a Stargate."
"Stargate...yes. Um, Dr Zervis mentioned
that word in his research. Though I
had given up hope of ever finding this
Dr Zervis amongst our people, his papers
have taught me much." (She opens up
a book and thumbs through the pages
of handwriting.) "Here: "Our visitor
claims to have come to Vias from beyond
the stars themselves. Though I still
cannot comprehend the science behind
this Stargate device she claims to have
used." I have studied this device since,
but have been unable to activate it."
"Uh, Ke'ra, could you go back to the
part about the visitor again?"
"She is mentioned many times in the
"What can you tell us about her?"
"That she was somewhat of an apothecary,
and that she did not survive the Vorlix."
"How do you know that?"
"The bodies of an elder woman and man
were discovered some days later in a
building destroyed by explosion. The
only remains of our elders we have found.
We deduced the male must have been Dr
Zervis. And the female matches what
little description he gave in his notes
of the visitor."
"What is the name of this elder woman?"
A look of recognition passes between Sam and Daniel who are standing
on either side of a support pole. Teal'c and Jack also react
to the news.
Vias Hospital Jack is back in the hallway watching as people
are busy all around him. Seconds later, Dr. Fraiser, Teal'c and
several other SGC personnel walk up the hallway to greet him.
"Oh hi, what's your name?" Janet smiles.
"I have informed Dr Fraiser that we
may have located the planet to which
"Possibly. I'd like to know what we're
dealing with here."
"Sounds like a world-class case of amnesia."
"Check these people out, will ya?"
"Yes, Sir. I'll find out what I can."
(Then to the team she brought with her)
"Let's, um, set up over here."
"I keep finding references to something
"Yes, I found Dargol was a chemical
once used as a pesticide. It seems to
have had a significant impact on the
environment, and has since been banned."
"Yes, we had a similar problem on my
world with a chemical called DTT. It
built up in the food chain until entire
species were threatened."
"Yes. I first believed this Dargol was
related to our loss of memory much the
same way, but there's little evidence
of it. I've found residue only in the
bodies of those who have died since
Ke'ra pauses as she looks at a picture of an older man.
"Sometimes the images of people in the
archives look familiar to me. I wonder
if I knew this person, or that person.
There are still so many questions, like
why are there no images of children
and where have our elders gone? Through
your Stargate perhaps?"
"Well, I suppose it's possible your
people foresaw a disaster coming and
sent the most helpless to safety."
"No, Daniel, whatever happened, happened
quickly without warning."
"How do you know that? Because if you
saw disaster coming, you would have
left yourselves a note? Sort of a 'to
whom it may concern..."
Jack and Sam takes note of the smiling and giggling that is going
on between Daniel and Ke'ra, who are seated at the end of a table
and away from the rest of SG-1. Then Sam notices Jack staring
off into space.
"Oh...I was just thinking about amnesia.
It doesn't quite track with Lynnea's
"The Destroyer of Worlds."
"Yeah, that one."
"Well, actually, in sort of a sick way,
it does. Ke'ra said herself their society
was on the verge of collapse, despite
their efforts. This world is in trouble,
"Perhaps Lynnea was experimenting with
other ways in which to destroy worlds."
"Variety being the spice of life and
"The fact is, Sir, we let Lynnea out
of Hadante prison. We gave her everything
she needed to know about the network
of Stargates to go anywhere she wanted."
"We're responsible, Sir."
Meanwhile, at the other end of the room, Ke'ra and Daniel are
"Tell me of Lynnea."
"Well, uh, basically, we met her on
a visit to another planet, during which
we were imprisoned, unjustly, and Lynnea
helped us escape."
"Surely there is nothing wrong with
that, if you were imprisoned unjustly."
"Well, she was imprisoned justly. It
was only after we escaped that we learned
this nice, older lady we thought Lynnea
was, was in fact a very, very bad, older
lady, who had committed terrible crimes."
"She created a plague that almost wiped
out an entire people. They called her
the Destroyer of Worlds. She found your
world because of us, through one of
our computers. And that's why we're
going to do everything in our power
"I know you will."
Later, Sam is looking at books on the shelves of the Library.
She finds a book on it's side lying behind the standing books.
It is a pocket size book. She opens it to reveal more handwritten
"I may have something."
"I think it's Lynnea's diary. I remember
seeing her with it."
Janet walks in as Sam sits back at the table with the diary.
"Your diagnosis was bang on, Major.
Now, Sir, I can either take the next
several weeks setting up a lab here
to study the problem, going back and
forth for computer analysis. Or we could
go back with these volunteers, do a
series of MRIs and get the answers we
need a lot faster."
"I would be glad to volunteer and so
"As long as we maintain proper quarantine
procedures, it shouldn't be a problem,
"Alright, I'll go on back and brief
"I believe I can help."
"I'm sure you can."
Janet smiles and all watch as Daniel escorts Ke'ra away, his
hand resting on her back. Sam and Jack share a look. I think
both are wondering at the attention Daniel is giving Ke'ra.
Vias Stargate As we hear the Stargate locking chevrons, we see
an airship in the sky that is visible through the windows of
the building. It reminds me of a Jules Verne device. The camera
pans to show Daniel at the DHD with Ke'ra close by observing
his actions. Sam is near as are Teal'c, Orner and the woman that
first found SG-1 in this room. Daniel presses the center of the
DHD and the Stargate activates.
"See you on the other side."
Teal'c and Sam step through the 'gate.
SGC - 'Gateroom The quartet steps through and grunts from a few
of them can be heard.
"You all right?"
"Am I in one piece?"
"Yes, Orner, one skinny little piece."
"General Hammond, this is Ke'ra."
"It's a pleasure, Ke'ra."
"On behalf of the Transitional Government
of Vias, we...thank you for your generosity
and your support, General."
"Daniel, you wanna show 'em to the Infirmary?"
"Colonel, what if Dr Fraiser's unable
to reverse whatever caused this?"
"I don't know."
SGC - Infirmary Janet is typing at a keyboard. Her actions pull
up simultaneous images of brain scans.
"Now if you look at the blue areas,
you'll see that you all have the same
identical obstructions in your temporal
lobes and hippocampus sections of your
brain. I'm not exactly sure what it
is, except it's some sort of residue
between the synapses. So it's possible
your old memories are intact, they're
just not accessible."
"So the memories are just blocked."
"And does this material match the Dargol
residue that I gave you?"
"We should be able to confirm that very
quickly. And if it can be dissolved
or removed without damaging the neurons..."
"Then we can be cured!"
"We need only to find the right medicine
to dissolve the residue."
"That...that is much more difficult
that it sounds."
"Well, then we should get started immediately."
"Uh, Ke'ra, we've already been at it
for a long time and I still have some
tests to run, so..."
"So, why don't I give you the fifty-cent
SGC - Corridor Ke'ra and Daniel are walking together, very closely
"Your complex is incredible, Daniel,
your technology...I've never dreamed
of such marvels. Thank you."
Is it, is it morning or night on the
surface? Uh, may we see for ourselves?
"Uh, no, not yet. Soon, though, I hope."
"I hope so too." She giggles a little.
They reach a door. He opens it and leads her into a guest room.
So this is it. Uh...it's...not much
of a view, but it's got all the comforts...
(cutting him off) "You've been very
kind. Thank you."
"So, there are...clothes...in the...dresser...uh,
some sort of a..."
(cutting him off again) "Is my clothing
"No, no, no. No, no it's...No it's uh,
it's fine. I was just...Are you hungry?
I can, I can have them send something
down. You're hungry, I'm hungry, I'm
gonna have them send something down.
Are you...you want something?"
(advancing toward him) "Yes..."
"Since the Vorlix, close contact has
become...almost taboo. We were afraid
that if we were ever able to regain

as he can back up no further) "You would
find yourself waking up beside the wrong

"No I'm not from...there...from Vias...no,

"No you don't. I mean, I'm, uh, um...ok,
I mean I'm finding myself very, very...very...But,
uh, um...the fact is I've only just
recently lost my wife."
Moving toward him again.
"And, uh...well, that's not actually,
totally, true, I mean I actually really
lost her a long time ago, but, uh, the
fact is I don't think right now I would
trust myself completely to, uh..."
She kisses him.
"I'm sorry, I interrupted you."
"No, you didn't, no, I, uh, I wasn't
going to say anything..."
"I had to do that. I had to do that
in case...when my memory returns, I
find myself attached to someone else,
and...I am unable to ever do it again."
"Right. I understand. That's...that's
probably why I should do this."
He kisses her.
"Yes, Sir. I've been studying Lynnea's
journals. Apparently, she found a link
between Dargol - it's a chemical pesticide
the Vians used - and longevity."
"What's a bug spray have to do with
"Well, it seems it was having the effect
of slowing the aging process. Not in
an extreme way, but certainly significant
"Yes and no. They stopped using it over
twenty years ago. It was adversely affecting
their fertility rate."
"So no kids."
"Right. The point is: Lynnea was trying
to enhance the life-extending properties
of Dargol to create a sort of fountain
"She was trying to make herself young
"According to her last entry, Lynnea
was about to conduct some controlled
lab experiments using an intensely concentrated
form of Dargol, on two Vian elders:
a male and a female."
"And...that's where her journal ends."
"Ah...the Vorlix, perhaps?"
Exactly. "Now what if there really was
a laboratory accident? Some massive
chain reaction of enhanced Dargol gas
that caught even Lynnea by surprise?
The entire population becomes young
again overnight. You realise, of course,
"Uh...they're elders aren't missing,
Sir. They are the elders. The fountain
of youth worked. The amnesia was simply
a side effect Lynnea didn't see coming."
"Ah...w-wait a minute. Lynnea is dead,
"Well, if those two bodies that Ke'ra
found really were the Vian elders that
Lynnea was experimenting on..."
"Don't say it, Carter."
"Sir, we wouldn't recognise her even
if she walked in the front door."
"Don't, don't..." (he covers his ears)
"Ah, ah - a, la, la, laaa, la, la, laaa..."
(forging ahead anyway) "Sir, she has
the knowledge of chemistry, the medical
skills..." (she pulls his hands down
and he stops the la-las) "I think we
at least have to face the possibility
that Ke'ra is Lynnea."
SGC - Briefing Room SG-1 and General Hammond are meeting. All
but Daniel are seated around the conference table. He is standing
near the observation windows.
"Then she's also a victim of the amnesia?"
"It fits...well what about the body
of the old woman they found after the
Vorlix that *fits* Lynnea's description?"
"Lynnea's first victim."
"Come on Daniel, you saw the test results.
What more do you need?"
"Ke'ra's DNA is a perfect match for
the samples I took from Lynnea last
year. It's irrefutable."
(raising his voice) "Irrefutable? Ok,
so let's just, uh, lock her up, throw
away the key then. Or better yet, we
could send her back to the prison where
we found her."
"Lynnea, Daniel. She used to be Lynnea.
We're lucky she didn't knock us off
the first time around."
"Let me ask you a question: Who would
you trust with your life more than anyone
else in the world? Don't worry, I won't
be offended if you don't pick me. Could
it be Teal'c?"
"Uh, Teal'c, just refresh my memory.
What was your previous occupation?"
"I was the First Prime of Apophis."
"Right. Did a few nasty things back
(angry now) "We see the subtle point
you're trying to make."
"No you don't. She is not the same person.
She is not...who she used to be. Let's
not condemn her for who she may have
been in the past."
"I think it would be prudent to keep
her confined to her quarters until we
can resolve the Vians' medical crisis.
Colonel O'Neill, perhaps you could inform
"I'll inform her." He leaves without
SGC - Ke'ra's Room Daniel walks in to find Ke'ra has changed
into SGC clothing. She smiles when she sees him, but her smile
"Daniel...What's wrong? We have work
"Nothing, there are... quarantine procedures
that General Hammond is insisting on.
He's uh... you have to stay here awhile."
"But the effects of the Vorlix are not
"I can't tell you everything, but I
can tell you that more happened during
the Vorlix than just losing your memories."
"Is that why there are now guards outside
"No, that's standard procedure."
"If you say so."
"I do. Say so. So...I'll come visit
you in a little while."
"Is Doctor Fraiser still working towards
a cure for our amnesia?"
"Yes. Yes she is."
"So I can rest assured?"
Daniel leaves and Ke'ra is troubled.
SGC - Infirmary Jack walks in to see Janet rubbing at her temples
and Sam looking equally tired.
"Oh my. There is a distinct lack of
optimism in this room."
"We've been working around the clock
trying to dissolve a chemical inside
the brain without harming the surrounding
tissue and...it is not easy."
"What have you learned?"
"That it could take years, Sir."
"Suffice it to say, we don't have that
"Unless we get help."
(shocked) "Absolutely not."
"Sir...I don't like the idea any more
than you. But without her latent knowledge
of biochemistry, especially of the residual
Dargol, I don't know if we can reverse
the effects of the amnesia in time to
prevent a catastrophe on Vias."
"Doctor, you're asking me to allow a
known homicidal maniac to work with
potentially lethal substances."
"Yes Sir. But with all due respect,
Daniel may be right. Ke'ra may be an
entirely different person than Lynnea,
without the memories that made her the
person she was."
"Excuse me...amnesia check..."Destroyer
of Worlds"?" (Jack makes quote marks
with his fingers)
"Sir, Ke'ra wants nothing more than
to help her people. Now, as long as
she doesn't take the antidote that she
comes up with..."
"There won't be an antidote without
her help. So..."
"So...it's up to you, Sirs."
Hammond and O'Neill look at each other.
"I think a precaution or two might be
in order, Sir."
(still stunned, but considering) "You're
right about that, Colonel."
"What have I done, Daniel?"
"Nothing. They're just going to escort
us to the medical lab. I'll be with
you the whole time. Dr Fraiser needs
SGC - Medical Lab
"Now, b-be careful, Ke'ra. That could
become unstable, or even explosive."
"An unbalanced mixture could create
a deadly poisonous gas. We must not
exceed a three percent solution."
Okay, three percent.
(to Daniel, quietly a distance from
the other two) "She's brilliant."
"Yes she is."
"She's so far ahead of us, Daniel, it's
Later... we see Janet preparing a syringe.
"There is some danger. I would prefer
to test it on myself."
"That's not an option."
"May I ask why?"
"Because if it's unsuccessful we'll
need your help to try again."
"If it's unsuccessful, Orner may die.
I would never forgive myself."
We now see that Orner is on a bed in the infirmary, wearing a
"Then I forgive you now. I know how
important this is to our people."
"It must be injected directly into the
carotid artery. Right here. You ready?"
He nods. Janet injects. He jerks slightly, involuntarily.
"How do you feel? The effect should
be almost immediate."
"I feel something."
"Are you recalling anything?" Orner
begins seizing. The monitors begins
"Help me get him down!"
Other medical personnel help lay him back on the bed and keep
him from hurting himself. Then he stops moving. The heart monitor
makes a flatline sound.
"He's not breathing. There's no pulse.
It's a code blue!"
They start CPR using an ambu bag.
(as she's doing chest compressions)
"1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 5..."
More personnel arrive with a crash cart.
They put gel on the paddles and Janet rubs the paddles together.
Then the monitor starts beeping again.
"Wait a minute, he's stabilising."
Janet listens to his chest with her stethoscope. Orner's eyes
open as he regains consciousness.
"Help me get him up." (They prop a pillow
under his head.) "There..."
"Do you remember?"
(Shaking his head) "I am sorry."
"Next time it will work." (Then she
turns to Janet) "I believe I know where
I miscalculated. May we begin again?"
(Disturbed by her lack of emotion) "Why
don't we wait and see how Orner feels
in a little while?"
"The effect would have been immediate.
It did not work, we must try again."
"Dr. Fraiser's right, we should probably
take a break."
"As you wish."
SGC - Corridor Daniel and Ke'ra are walking back to her quarters.
Teal'c and two guards are following a discreet distance behind.
When they reach the door to her quarters, she turns to him.
"Daniel, may we be allowed to speak
"Yes." (then turning to Teal'c) "I'm
just going to stay for a minute."
"I will accompany you."
"I am concerned only for your welfare,
Minutes later in Ke'ra's room...
"They believe I am Lynnea."
"The Vorlix made the population of Vias
younger...years younger. You couldn't
find the elders, because...you were
"How can you believe that?"
"There is a test. It...compares what
we call DNA. It proves that you and
Lynnea are the same person."
"Well the test is wrong. I'm not Lynnea."
"No you're not. You're Ke'ra now. Ke'ra's
wonderful. And as long as you remain
that person that will never change."
"You're telling me...that I will never
be able to take the antidote. I would
never harm anyone, Daniel. Do you believe
She considers kissing him again and opts for lying her head on
his shoulder instead.
SGC - A Corridor Daniel walks around a corner and Jack is waiting
there for him, leaning up against the wall.
"Hey...heard the test didn't go too
Jack follows Daniel.
"She'll figure it out."
"Listen...I'm not saying the first woman
you've fallen for since Sha're isn't
a peach... but if she remembers who
she is, you'll be the first to go."
Daniel looks straight ahead, refusing to comment. He then continues
on his way. Jack watches him for a few seconds, then shakes his
head and goes back the way they came.
SGC -Medical Lab
"The 800 microliter potency is ready
for a pre-run."
Ke'ra uses a dropper to suck up some solution. She then puts
a few drops on some blue substance in one of three petrie dishes.
She puts the petrie dish in a microscope and looks at the result.
She steps back and lets Sam take a look.
"Yeah, I think you're right."
"I believe this potency will provide
"Great...thank you Ke'ra, we'll take
it from here."
"But I can assist you."
"We should perform the test once more
to be sure."
"I-I think it's better if we do this
ourselves, thank you."
"I see. May I return later to observe
Ke'ra puts the petrie dish back down and when no one is looking,
she picks up a slide.
SGC - Infirmary Janet injects Orner's neck again.
"This time it will work."
"Are you feeling any pain?"
He starts seizing again. They get him down on the bed again.
The seizing stops without him losing consciousness. The monitor,
which had been beeping rapidly, begins to beep evenly again.
They help him sit back up again.
"Orner, are you alright?"
"My real name is Nodal. I remember everything.
"And are we married after all?"
"No...I'm afraid I am married to Layale."
"And who is that?"
"You...for forty-three years." (the
he looks at Ke'ra again) Before the
Vorlix, you and I had not met yet."
"I am pleased for you."
"You must take the antidote now."
"I cannot. They will explain."
Ke'ra walks past them all on her way back to her quarters. Jack
grimaces at Daniel. Daniel puts a hand up to tell Teal'c to hang
back as he follows Ke'ra.
SGC -Corridor Daniel and Ke'ra walk off an elevator. They are
followed by two guards.
"What will be done with me?"
"Well, if you don't take the antidote,
I see no reason why you can't go back
to Vias. I intend to ask them."
"They'll fear me. I would."
"For all that you've done for them,
they'll be grateful."
"All debts have now been paid."
She reaches up to caress his cheek. He bows his head.
"I'll come back after I've had the chance
to speak with your people."
"I shall miss you, Daniel."
Daniel starts walking away, but then he realizes what she just
said. He runs back to the room and throws the door open. She
is holding two vials and it appears that she was planning to
mix the contents of the two.
"You've taken the antidote."
Daniel closes the door, remaining inside with Ke'ra alone.
"You said, "All debts have now been
paid." That was the message Lynnea left
(angry) "Did you take the antidote?"
(yelling back) "I had to know, Daniel!
I didn't believe you!"

"I deserve to die."
"I don't believe that."
"You don't understand. There's a part

"There are two people inside of me,

"We do, Ke'ra. We understand you have
lost your memory. Know that you are
a great leader of our people and you
are most welcome."
"I sense we knew each other well, before
my memory was lost. Did we?"
"No...No, we never really did. Goodbye
"Goodbye". The three return through
the Stargate, but not before Ke'ra gives
Daniel one last look and smile.
