                         Major Carter. Dr Jackson, Teal’c glad 
                         you could make it

                                     BARRETT
                         How’s Colonel O’Neill doing?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Still recovering, he’s taking some time 
                         off.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Well we’re still putting together the 
                         details here, if you’ll follow me. I’ll 
                         explain as we go.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What is this Place?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         An abandoned industrial complex as near 
                         as we can tell it we was home to a rogue 
                         NID sleeper cell. We’ve been trying 
                         to locate or over a year now.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Still haven’t got them all?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         No not by a long shot, Major their ties 
                         run deep. They seem to have infinite 
                         resources at their disposal.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What were they doing here?

                                     BARRETT
                         We’re not exactly sure yet.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What happened?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         At approximately 0800 hours we intercepted 
                         a 911 call, we moved in just after local 
                         authorities arrived, we’ve been in lockdown 
                         mode ever since
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait a minute, someone from a top secret, 
                         not to mention illegal NID operation 
                         called 911?
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         It got real ugly. Come on. We got a 
                         call from a panicked male voice. We 
                         think it was from the cleaning staff. 
                         The call was cut short. Thus far we’ve 
                         counted 32 casualties. Including a 6 
                         man security contingent
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Who would do this?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         And for what reason.

                                     BARRETT
                         Actually, we know who did it, as for 
                         why . . .
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You know who did this?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Yeah.

               
               Walking into the room

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Open it

               
               A cell sits in the middle of a warehouse room. The cell is made 
               out of safety glass hung on a steel frame.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         It was her.

               
               
               
                                     BARRETT
                         At first we thought she was a survivor 
                         and then we found this. (VHS security 
                         tape)
 
               
               They watch it showing her kill someone

               
                                     BARRETT
                         We found her cowering in the corner, 
                         and genuinely terrified with no memory 
                         of what happened.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You put her in the cell

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Yeah, that’s where she said they kept 
                         her. We locked her up there after we 
                         found the security tapes we didn’t want 
                         to take any chances.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Who is she?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         We’re not sure yet. She’s been printed 
                         just running her through the system
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         any other survivors

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Yeah, one. A scientist named Keffler, 
                         we’re holding him upstairs. So far he 
                         hasn’t been very talkative. Come on 
                         let me show you guys why I called you 
                         down here.
 
               
               They follow Barrett. The door creeks open and a metallic thud 
               rings as the door slams back. They enter a storage area containing 
               all sorts of objects. Their footfalls are loud on the concrete 
               floor.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wow

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Recognize anything

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Nothing I’ve catalogued as coming through 
                         the SGC
 
               
                                     TEALC
                         This indicates it belonged to Sehkmet
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Who was that?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         A goa’uld who at one time was loyal 
                         to Ra
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, we know she was a powerful ally 
                         of his, who he routinely dispatched 
                         to rule planets in his stead. Help put 
                         down rebellions, oversee mass executions, 
                         that sort of fun stuff.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Sounds like a real sweetheart. What 
                         happened?
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         It was believed that she was exiled 
                         for plotting against Ra
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We also believe that she lived here 
                         for most of his dynasty. I didn’t realize 
                         this stuff had been recovered.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         From what I could gather it may have 
                         come from the Germans
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         the Germans?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         The background that I have on Keffler 
                         says that he’s the son of a convicted 
                         Nazi war criminal.
 
               
               Daniel and Carter share a glance of mutual comprehension

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Guess we really shouldn’t be that surprised.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Rogue NID really have no limits do they?
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         See if there is anything else you can 
                         tell me about this stuff.
 
               
               Daniel nods his head and turns to study the artifacts

               
                                     BARRETT
                         I’m going to go back at Keffler again 
                         do you want to join me?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sure

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Just thought you might like to watch 
                         a master of interrogation at work.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         You calling someone special?

               
               Keffler sits at a table smoking a cigarette

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Dr. Keffler. This is Major Samantha 
                         Carter
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         of the stargate program

               
                                     BARRETT
                         That’s right Are you ready to tell us 
                         about the girl? Look Doctor do I really 
                         need to explain the nature of your situation?
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Oh, please do it amuses me.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         This was an off the books NID operation. 
                         Which means technically you don’t exist. 
                         Which means no phone calls, no lawyers. 
                         Hell I don’t even have to read you your 
                         rights. To make matters worse for you 
                         the people who ran this operation are 
                         all in jail. No body to bail you out.
 
                         
               
               Keffler tips his cigarette nonchalantly

               
                                     CARTER
                         What kind of work was being done here 
                         doctor?
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         You’re a smart girl you’ll figure it 
                         out
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Look do you really think that we are 
                         just going to let you walk away from 
                         this 32 people are dead.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Believe it or not I really do feel bad 
                         about that. Some of them were not quite 
                         as incompetent as the others. Unfortunately, 
                         the bad ones always ruin it for everyone 
                         don’t they?
 
               
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         That unlocks my car

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Don’t think your safe

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Read the papers agent Barrett no one 
                         is safe these days
 
               
               Pause as Barrett turns to leave.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         My Pills.

               
               Barrett hands him one pill

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Now Now you wouldn’t want your only 
                         witness to die on you would you?
 
               
               Barrett and Carter are seen leaving the cell.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Its nitro says he has a bad heart. I 
                         say an x-ray would confirm a total absence.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         I don’t know I think he’s starting to 
                         crack.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Come on They guy was colder than Hannibal 
                         lecter in there.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Still, obviously no match for a master 
                         interrogator
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I didn’t see you get all Cleary Starling 
                         on his ass.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I didn’t want to step on your toes.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Come on I got one more thing to show 
                         you.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         There’s more?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Trust me. I’m saving the best for last
 
                         
               
               They walk down stairs into a dark room, a laboratory

               
                                     CARTER
                         This isn’t at all creepy

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Oh it gets better

               
               Pulls out a drawer containing specimen jars

               
                                     CARTER
                         They look like partially developed fetuses
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         They don’t look human to me.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Failed experiments of some kind?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         What kind is the question

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, there’s one way to find out.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         No forget it major, we’ve already tried 
                         that all the codes are encrypted
 
               I’ve requested a data retrieval team.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Present and accounted for

               
                                     BARRETT
                         sigh, right___ of course. So how’ve 
                         you been?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Busy, you?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Busy.

               
                                     CARTER
                         You know, I never properly thanked you 
                         for that memo on Woolsey.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Well, maybe we could go out for dinner 
                         sometime?
 
               
               There is an awkward pause

               
                                     CARTER
                         It’s just that I’m seeing someone right 
                         now.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Really? You? . . . hm.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, you asked me out.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Yep, right . . . sorry. I’m going to 
                         go check in with Doctor Jackson and 
                         Teal’c.
 
               
               Sam nods her head and snickers. Smiles widely as Barrett exits.
 
               
               
               The Room with all the artifacts

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Most of the artifacts are related in 
                         some way to Sehkmet. Guessing they were 
                         found here on earth possibly in an Eygptian 
                         tomb or crypt of some kind.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Nothing of Note?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No it’s interesting stuff, but ah, no, 
                         no not really.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         What’s this?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         It would appear to be an ark.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         ordained in the gold motif of the sun 
                         god Ra, possibly a gift to Sehkmet
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Ok, what’s in it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t know we haven’t been able to 
                         open it. But, um these turn.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Some sort of combination lock.

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         So it would seem.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Any luck with the scientist?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         No, not exactly. The girl may be on 
                         tape killing everybody, but I’m pretty 
                         sure the guy up there is not innocent.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, what about that girl.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         She hasn’t said anything since we locked 
                         her up. I was kind of hoping that you’d 
                         give it a try.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Um . . . me?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         I heard you had a knack for this type 
                         of thing.
 
               
               Daniel looks at Barrett and scene fades out.

               
               Fade in Daniel walking to the cell where the girl is being held.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Hi I’m um Daniel Jackson. Daniel Pauses 
                         waits then speaks again. You’re Anna 
                         right? You know when I first saw you, 
                         I didn’t believe that you could do the 
                         things they said you did. Even, after 
                         I saw it for myself, I still don’t believe 
                         it.
 
               
               Look I know you don’t know me and have no reason to trust me, 
               but I want to help you. Another Pause. Before I do that I need 
               to know a few things first. I need to know who you are. What’s 
               happened to you? Wh_why you’re here in a cell like this? Pause 
               again . . . Do you even understand me?
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         I didn’t kill those people.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, there’s some pretty overwhelming 
                         evidence.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         It wasn’t me.

               
               Anna gets up from the bed she has been sitting on and moves toward 
               Daniel
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         Please you have to believe me. It wasn’t 
                         me!
 
               
               Daniel shows her the security tape footage of her killing scientists.
 
               
               
                                     ANNA
                         Turn it off! TURN IT OFF!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sorry.

               
                                     ANNA
                         I couldn’t do those things.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It looks like you did.

               
                                     ANNA
                         It’s not me.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Then who is it?

               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t know

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ok, where were you when this was happening?
 
                         
               
               Anna is confused and distraught.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         If the person in the tape isn’t you 
                         then where were you? What were you doing?
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t remember. Anna is very agitated 
                         and confused now
 
               
               Daniel clears his throat

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Who is doctor Keffler?

               
                                     ANNA
                         He is the one who made me.

               
               Lab—the jars of fetuses are seen

               
                                     DANIEL
                         She says that Keffler mad her. What 
                         the hell, does that mean?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Some sort of genetic research.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         She’s over 20 years old the operation 
                         has not been going on that long.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, we know the Asgard can rapidly 
                         grow a human clone, but . . .
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Area 51 has a sample of Goa’uld nanite 
                         technology from the planet Argos. It 
                         can also rapidly grow a human with the 
                         ability to learn very quickly. And the 
                         Rogue NID would have had access to that.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         She also said that Keffler is responsible 
                         for everything that happened.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         How?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t know.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you think she’s telling the truth?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ah. . . to be honest I don’t know what 
                         to think. She certainly believes she 
                         didn’t do it. Says the girl in the video 
                         tape isn’t her.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         How can that be possible?

               
                                     CARTER
                         The NID have cloned a goa’uld symbiote 
                         before.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Right of course she could be a clone.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         could be more than one of her. How well 
                         have you searched this facility?
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Top to bottom. I’d better put an APB 
                         out to local authorities.
 
               
               Anna is sitting in her cell drawing with a charcoal pencil. Daniel 
               is watching her.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Anna how long have you lived here?
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         Since I remember.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, how long is that exactly?

               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t know.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You ever have a birthday? You know a 
                         birthday . . . cake with candles on 
                         it, funny hats, pin the tail on the 
                         donkey, that kind of thing.
 
                                     ANNA
                         He gave me this paper and some new charcoal.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Who Doctor Keffler? Anna nods

               
                                     ANNA
                         He always gave me paper, but once he 
                         said it was my birthday.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Just once. Anna nods. Have you ever 
                         seen anything outside of this room?
 
                         
                                     ANNA
                         Just pictures. I read a lot of books, 
                         which describe the world outside. The 
                         mountains, the oceans, the sun.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You’ve never experienced them first 
                         hand?
 
               
               Anna shakes her head no looking sad and wistful

               
               Daniel gestures indicating the drawings

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What about these?

               
                                     ANNA
                         those are the things I see in my dreams. 
                         Flashes they just come to me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They mean anything to you?

               
                                     ANNA
                         Just, they scare me.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         If they scare you so much, why do you 
                         hang them up everywhere.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t want them there. He hurts me 
                         if I take them down. They are important 
                         to him.
 
               
               Daniel watches as she draws, he sees that she is drawing a beetle 
               like Ra’s symbol
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You have anymore with one of those on 
                         it? Maybe on an Ark?
 
               
               Anna grabs a handful of drawings and shows Daniel

               
                                     SCENE CHANGES
                         Daniel slaps a drawing down on top of 
                         the ark.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I got it, it’s one of Anna’s sketches. 
                         I think it is the combination to open 
                         the ark.
 
               
               Teal’c studies the drawing briefly and begins to turn the scarabs. 
               The lid of the ark releases with a pressurized hiss.
 
               
               They remove the lid to see a goa’uld device that is activated.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Did we just do that?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         I do not believe so. It was activated 
                         some time ago.
 
               
               Barrett enters the laboratory where Carter is still decoding 
               the files.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I’ve got a picture out to local authorities. 
                         If there’s a second girl out there that 
                         looks like her we’ll find her.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I’m in, I have complete access.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Nice work.

               
                                     CARTER
                         The files seem to document recent work 
                         going back over three years.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Recent work?

               
                                     CARTER
                         The artifacts go all the way back to 
                         Napoleon. The Nazis eventually recovered 
                         them.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         They ended up in Keffler’s Father’s 
                         hands.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         They found a canopic jar. (Barrett looks 
                         puzzled) It’s a vessel containing a 
                         preserved symbiote. Keffler spliced 
                         human ovum with DNA taken from a Goa’uld.

                         The girl’s a human- Goa’uld hybrid.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         The Goa’uld pass on their knowledge 
                         genetically. They were trying to create 
                         a human who could tell them everything 
                         a Goa’uld would know. They didn’t want 
                         to wait either.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         They got their nanite technology from 
                         area 51.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         So they could make her grow up quickly. 
                         It took them 45 failures before they 
                         finally got it right. You can call off 
                         that APB

                         There’s only one of her.

               
                                     CARTER
                         According to this. The previous attempts 
                         either didn’t blend properly or they 
                         grew too fast and died. The technology 
                         had to be modified so that the human 
                         could slowly learn to gain access to 
                         the genetic knowledge buried in her 
                         DNA. My God! They tortured the poor 
                         girl. Sensory deprivation, electrocution 
                         . . .

                         She’s not a clone. There’s only one 
                         of her and she’s got Goa’uld DNA blended 
                         with her own. That could explain her 
                         behavior and why she doesn’t know what 
                         she’s done.

                         The ark is a bomb.

               
                                     CARTER AND BARRETT
                         What?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         The ark is in fact a Goa’uld explosive 
                         device.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And it’s been activated.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         How much time do we have?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Approximately 16 hours.

               
               Scene in Keffler’s cell

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         How interesting.

               
               Barrett grabs Keffler and throws him against the wall

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Wipe the smarmy smile off your face, 
                         and tell me what’s going on here!
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         You’re hurting me.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Nothing I do to you could make up for 
                         what you’ve done here.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Agent Barrett

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Listen to her Agent Barrett

               
                                     BARRETT
                         You are going to tell me everything 
                         that I want to know, or she is not going 
                         to be able to stop me from beating you 
                         senseless.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         What do you want to know?

               
                                     CARTER
                         For starters do you know how to deactivate 
                         the bomb?
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I didn’t know it was a bomb

               
                                     BARRETT
                         The girl breaks out of her cell, kills 
                         32 people sets a bomb to go off a day 
                         from now and then sticks around? How 
                         does that make sense?
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Your problem Agent Barrett, one among 
                         many I’m afraid to point out, is that 
                         you see her as a girl.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Look if you’re going to give us some 
                         moral justification for what’s gone 
                         on here . . .
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Please, Major. I know that you have 
                         helped to orchestrate the death of Goa’ulds 
                         before, assassinated them in cold blood; 
                         in fact without regard to the life of 
                         the human host.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I didn’t create the problem.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Neither did I, I am merely trying to 
                         help solve it. The Goa’uld are a terrible 
                         threat to us all. Anna is a device a 
                         conduit to the knowledge, knowledge 
                         that could level the playing field. 
                         And I think we all agree that if killing 
                         one person could save millions, billions 
                         of innocent lives you would have no 
                         choice you would do it.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Answer my question.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I’m sorry, I’ve forgotten what it was.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Why set the bomb and stick around.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Anna did not set that bomb.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Then who did?

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         The Goa’uld, Sehkmet

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Wait a minute, she doesn’t have a snake 
                         inside her right?
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Something we didn’t expect. Separate 
                         and distinct personalities.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Are you saying that Anna’s mind has 
                         created an entirely separate personality 
                         that acts like the Goa’uld Sehkmet?
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Yes, but I don’t know if it is that 
                         she is incapable of dealing with the 
                         darkness within her, or that that knowledge 
                         is so powerful that it is capable of 
                         manifesting itself as such. I only know 
                         that it emerges and speaks as a unique 
                         entity. We have witnessed it with a 
                         growing frequency. Anna has no memory, 
                         no awareness to her it is as if she 
                         is ah blacked out.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Ok, so the Goa’uld personality comes 
                         out, goes on a rampage, sets the bomb.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         But can’t stay in control of the body 
                         long enough to finish what she was doing.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Her breakthroughs are sporatic and seem 
                         somewhat uncontrolled.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Still, why set the bomb?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Leverage.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Against what?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sehkmet, only has conscious control 
                         of the body for short periods of time. 
                         She wants more. She was going to blackmail 
                         you with the bomb.
 
               
               Keffler giggles

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Oh, the physche is so simple isn’t it, 
                         so single-minded, it is truly fascinating 
                         to behold.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         She thinks that you can give her that 
                         full control.
 
               
               Keffler shrugs his shoulders

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Can you?

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         She is the experiment, I am the observer.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Still the Goa’uld personality didn’t 
                         go and do something like this on a whim. 
                         You led her to believe that you have 
                         the power to have control of her life. 
                         And I’ll bet you did it so she would 
                         tell you what you want to know.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         How to save us all, Major. I am not 
                         the only one who wants to know.
 
               
               Anna pacing in her cell

               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t remember anything.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know this must be hard for you.

               
                                     ANNA
                         How can you know what this is like for 
                         me?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Cause I knew a boy once, he was like 
                         you.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         There are more like me?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Um, not exactly. He was born of two 
                         Goa’uld hosts. We call a child like 
                         that a harcesis.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         What happened to him?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He was saved by a very powerful being. 
                         He ascended to a higher plain of existence, 
                         and when he did he gained great power 
                         himself. He used that power to show 
                         me that all the memories and knowledge 
                         passed on to him by the Goa’uld genetically 
                         came with a terrible burden, and how 
                         it was wrong to seek it for any reason.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         Can I be saved like him?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Maybe, honestly I don’t know. Will you 
                         help us shut this bomb off?
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t know how.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You do. You knew how to open the ark 
                         it was in your drawings.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         I don’t remember turning it on.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know, but somewhere inside you, your 
                         mind has the answer. I can help you 
                         find it.
 
               
               Doctor Lee, scientist of the SGC runs a scanning device over 
               the ark, taking readings.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         According to these readings there’s 
                         a ten-pound block of naquadah in this 
                         thing.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         What’s that supposed to mean?

               
                                     LEE
                         That would be very bad if it went off.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Well, it’s a bomb, usually it’s not 
                         a good thing when they go off.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         True

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Can we move this?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         From what I know of Goa’uld weaponry 
                         that would be unwise. It may have a 
                         sensor that would detect such an action.
 
                         
               
                                     LEE
                         Uh, yeah, I don’t even want to go there. 
                         Let’s uh, see if we can disarm it here 
                         first.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I’m going to get the local authorities 
                         to start evacuating the area.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         Thanks for the vote of confidence

               
                                     BARRETT
                         How many miles are we talking about 
                         here.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         I don’t know, how big is Orange County?
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         You’re kidding right?

               
                                     LEE
                         Do I, do I look like a practical joker 
                         to you?
 
               
               Barrett turns and exits

               
               Daniel holds up a drawing toward Anna

               
                                     ANNA
                         Images just come to me I draw them. 
                         I don’t know what they mean.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Just relax, and think about it. When 
                         you look at this what comes to mind?
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         The blackouts, they’re happening more 
                         and more.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You trust me? You trust me? I want to 
                         help you I don’t want to hurt you.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         After I help you

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It’s not like that. We have to shut 
                         this bomb off.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         How many birthdays have you had?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         That’s not important right now.

               
                                     ANNA
                         You sound just like him.

               
               Daniel is puzzled by her statement and seeks for answers by watching 
               surveillance tapes.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I heard you were in here. What are you 
                         doing?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I noticed most of the tapes were labeled 
                         Anna, it’s not just security video it’s 
                         actual documentation of the research.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Anything useful?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, just something she said when we 
                         were talking. How I reminded her of 
                         Keffler.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I figured I needed to learn more about 
                         how he dealt with her before I pressed 
                         her too much.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         What are your chances that you’ll find 
                         out how to deactivate the bomb from 
                         her in time?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t know

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Just trying to get as much of the area 
                         evacuated as we can. Just don’t know 
                         how big the blast is going to be. (pause) 
                         no pressure. I’ll leave now. (Daniel 
                         resumes watching tapes)
 
               
               Barrett seeks out Carter in the laboratory.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         You know I’d feel better if you were 
                         down there working on the bomb.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Doctor Lee is the best we’ve got for 
                         this, and Teal’c knows more thatn I 
                         do about Goa’uld weapons. Besides I 
                         wanted to see if there was anything 
                         more in the research notes that might 
                         help.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Like what?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, if we can offer Anna a cure for 
                         her condition, she might be more willing 
                         to help us. She’s been horrible mistreated 
                         and intervention she has very little 
                         hope of survival. Now at the time they 
                         made her, they had no idea what her 
                         life span was going to be. Based on 
                         her current rate of growth I estimate 
                         that it can’t be more than three years.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Can you help her?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Possibly. We should at least be able 
                         to halt the rapid growth effects of 
                         the nanites. Now I doubt we can unmarry 
                         the Goa’uld DNA from hers, but we may 
                         be able to block the knowledge from 
                         her conscious mind stop it from possessing 
                         her. We’ve had some luck with certain 
                         drugs in similar situations before.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I suppose the fact that you’ve had similar 
                         situations shouldn’t come as a total 
                         shock.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Anything on your end?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Keffler he wants to chat.

               
               Daniel is seen still watching the tapes. Suddenly, he rewinds 
               the tape and watches.
 
               
               Tape

                                     ANNA
                         Ahh! Anna screams in pain.

                                     KEFFLER
                         There is a cure Anna. You can be a normal 
                         girl, live a normal life. You can be 
                         free, or you can continue to suffer.
 
                         
               
               Keffler on the tape points an object at Anna causing her pain.
 
               
               
               Anna screams out in agony

               
                                     ANNA
                         No . . .please. Please stop. Ahh!

               Sehkmet personality emerges

                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         Stop this at once I command you.

                                     KEFFLER
                         Now we’re getting somewhere.

                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         Let me out of here.

                                     KEFFLER
                         In due time freedom can be yours.

                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         You think I will just tell you the secrets 
                         of the Goa’uld.
 
                                     KEFFLER
                         If you want to live.

                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         You will not kill me.

                                     KEFFLER
                         I can make another as easily as I made 
                         you.
 
               
                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         If it were up to me, given the chance, 
                         I would rip the beating heart from your 
                         chest and feed it to you.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Such colorful language. Let’s focus 
                         on the issue at hand shall we.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Son of a bitch.

               
               Keffler sitting in his cell talking to Barrett

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         We have the same goal. I do not wish 
                         to see my work go to waste. (Pause) 
                         Look I know her. I know how her mind 
                         works. I can get you what you need.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, I’ve read about your methods.
 
                         
               
               Keffler smiles insolently.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I will only talk to her. You are welcome 
                         to be present the entire time.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Then what do you want in return. Like 
                         I can’t believe that you would be doing 
                         this solely for the greater good.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         My freedom

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Not a chance.

                                     KEFFLER
                         I am guilty of nothing more than trying 
                         to save this world, JUST LIKE YOU! We 
                         are at war!
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Desperate times, call for desperate 
                         measures. I’ve heard that defense.
 
                         
               
               Carter and Barrett leave. Keffler calls after them.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         What choice do you have? How many people 
                         will die if that bomb goes off.
 
               
               Carter and Barrett walking down the hall.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Let’s just say we’re considering this. 
                         Do you have the authority to offer him 
                         immunity.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Trust me. No matter what we decide to 
                         do, no court is ever going to hear about 
                         any of this.
 
               
               As Barrett and Carter talk Daniel storms past them down to Keffler’s 
               cell.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You let her out didn’t you?

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         You must be Daniel Jackson.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel what’s going on? He’s in control 
                         when the Goa’uld comes out. It’s not 
                         just random. He’s got himself a little 
                         remote control.
 
               
               Barrett reaches in his pocket and pull out an item

               
                                     BARRETT
                         This?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah. He uses it to shock her. He can 
                         make the Goa’uld personality appear 
                         or he can kill her with it. Why? Were 
                         the other scientist going to shut down 
                         your research, going to report your 
                         little science experiment?
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         You have no proof of that.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You use that device to bring out the 
                         Goa’uld personality. Then, you let her 
                         out of her cage, you murdered 32 people.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Speculation

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You can control her with that. If you 
                         didn’t want the other scientists dead, 
                         why didn’t you stop her?
 
               
               Keffler blows smoke from his cigarette and shrugs.

               
               The Bomb is shown and Doctor Lee with Teal’c

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Careful

               Lee removes a panel

               
                                     LEE
                         Ok, now just because the cover wasn’t 
                         booby-trapped doesn’t mean that the 
                         crystals themselves are safe to touch.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         That is correct.

               
                                     LEE
                         There’s no energy signatures. I don’t 
                         think there’s any force fields or sensors 
                         protecting the compartment.
 
               
               Lee begins to touch a crystal

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         I am unsure which of these crystals 
                         control the detonation of this device.
 
                         
               
                                     LEE
                         Look, blue is typically for power regulation.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Indeed

               
                                     LEE
                         So if we remove the power regulation 
                         for the entire control board . . .
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         The device could explode

               
                                     LEE
                         Yeah, yeah. I suppose. I mean its not 
                         like I was going to pull the yellow 
                         one.
 
               
               Teal’c glares at Doctor Lee

               
               Carter, Barrett and Daniel leave Keffler’s cell

               
                                     BARRETT
                         So obviously letting Keffler anywhere 
                         near the girl is out.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         And if we’re going to get the bomb deactivation 
                         code from Anna. You’re going to have 
                         to do it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right

               
               Daniel leaves. Carter and Barrett exchange frustrated glances
 
               
               
               Bomb is seen again

               
                                     LEE
                         Ok so this red crystal seems to control 
                         the timer. I should be able to interface 
                         with it and hopefully reprogram it.
 
                         
               
               Lee works, the red numbers of the bomb begin to speed up. Lee 
               can’t see this looks up at Teal’c, who is standing watching the 
               count down device
 
               
                                     LEE
                         Anything happening.

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         It count down has begun increasing in 
                         speed.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         What? Did that stop it?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Yes, However . . .

               
               Barrett enters

               
                                     BARRETT
                         How’s it going? Not well, I take it?
 
                         
               
                                     LEE
                         Um, no we just had a little set back.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         What?

               
                                     LEE
                         Well, I was trying to interface with 
                         one of the control crystals . . .
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         The time until detonation is now less 
                         than two hours.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         Ok, well let’s hope that Doctor Jackson 
                         is having better luck.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They are trying to evacuate as many 
                         people as possible, but if that bomb 
                         goes off people are still going to die.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         Including us?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         We have a helicopter standing by to 
                         get us to a safe distance if it comes 
                         to that. I’m hoping it doesn’t because 
                         a lot of others won’t have that luxury.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         I’ve been trying I can’t see anything.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You know, not so long ago I had my memories 
                         erased.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         How?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It’s a long story but the point is, 
                         I was able to access certain lost memories 
                         by meditating. A friend of mine showed 
                         me how to do it. Now I think that can 
                         help you.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         What I see scares me so much.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know and for good reason. Ultimately 
                         it is up to you. I can’t force you to 
                         do this, and I won’t. I promise either 
                         way, we’re going to try and help you. 
                         Make it so you can live a normal life.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         He always said he could do that.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, the truth is I’m not sure if we 
                         can. But, we’re going to try anything 
                         and everything in our power.
 
               
               Barrett on the phone

               
                                     BARRETT
                         Ok, good, yep, 42 minutes 15 seconds 
                         and counting. Right, I’ll check back 
                         thanks.
 
               
               Carter enters as Barrett ends his phone conversation.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         We’ve got ten city blocks in each direction 
                         fully evacuated.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         That’s no where near enough.

               
                                     BARRETT
                         I know

               
                                     CARTER
                         I just finished going through the files 
                         in the computer.
 
               
               Carter is back interviewing Keffler again.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Even if we halt the rapid grow of the 
                         nanites. You didn’t isolate the gene 
                         that carried the Goa’uld genetic knowledge.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         We didn’t have time to sequence the 
                         entire strand, the goal was to get the 
                         intelligence, Major, not to create a 
                         viable living organism.
 
               
                                     BARRETT
                         I don’t understand

               
                                     CARTER
                         The way he blended the DNA; there’s 
                         nothing we can do to stop the Goa’uld 
                         DNA from eventually taking over. It 
                         will physically overwrite the human 
                         and nothing I know of will stop it.
 
                         
               
                                     BARRETT
                         What’s going to happen to her?

               
                                     CARTER
                         She’ll die, horrible, painful death. 
                         There is no cure, there is no way to 
                         save her that was just another lie.
 
                         
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I placed a capsule of biotoxin at the 
                         base of her brain the remote device 
                         will activate it. I did this to prevent 
                         any undue suffering when the time came.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         How humane of you.

               
               Anna and Daniel scene enters from above the cell and rotates 
               ‘til we see Daniel and Anna each has a candle and is sitting 
               cross-legged behind their respective candles.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         What do I do?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Um, just relax and try thinking of nothing.
 
                         
               
                                     ANNA
                         Nothing?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Try an empty room. You see a doorway. 
                         Go to that door and open it. Go through. 
                         You’re inside of a stone room. The floor 
                         is made of polished marble. You’re inside 
                         of a great pyramid, ornate carvings 
                         of beautiful snakes flank a golden throne. 
                         You see a window. You walk towards it, 
                         outside there are thousands of people, 
                         slaves who worship you as a god. You 
                         have great power over them. Power to 
                         decide who lives and who dies.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         No.

               
                                     ANNA/SEHKMET
                         I will tell you nothing.

                                     DANIEL
                         Anna. Anna.

               
               Anna/Sehkmet begins ripping down the drawings from the walls 
               of the cell.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Anna stop.

               
               Anna/Sehkmet glares at Daniel and grabs the candle. She reaches 
               down and lights the papers on fire.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         NO! FIRE! FIRE! Hurry come on.

               
               Two security agents enter. One grabs the extinguisher off the 
               wall. The other runs for the cell door to unlock it.
 
               
               Carter and Barrett race down the hall to the room. Upon entering 
               the room they find Daniel and the two agents knocked out. The 
               fire has been extinguished, but Anna is gone.
 
               
               Carter leans over Daniel

               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, you ok?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Where is she?

               
                                     BARRETT
                         She won’t get far.

               
               
               Keffler hears Barrett’s message from the radio on the agent guarding 
               him.
 
               
               Target is armed and dangerous. Use extreme caution.

               
               Barrett is seen on a stairwell landing with a flashlight. He 
               begins to descend, he is hit over the head from behind. Anna 
               moves and takes the remote control device that has the power 
               to kill her.
 
               
               Daniel looks at the drawings that are partially burned and then 
               realizes something.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t think she is acting as the Goa’uld. 
                         (He runs off)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel

               
               Carter reaches down and takes a gun from the holster of an unconscious 
               agent, and follows Daniel.
 
               
               Keffler is seen, he appears to be in pain.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         I . . . I just need a drink of water. 
                         Please, I’m not feeling 100 percent. 
                         (
 
               
               Keffler reaches for the water cooler and then groans in pain 
               and appears to stumble.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         My pills.

               
               Keffler leans against the guard, and at that moment reaches the 
               tazer gun at the guards side and fires it into the guard. Keffler 
               takes a gun from the guard.
 
               
               Daniel is seen entering where Doctor Lee and Teal’c are working 
               handing them a drawing.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I think it’s the deactivation code.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Agent Barrett this is Major Carter. 
                         Come in, what’s your location? Agent 
                         Barrett?
 
               
               Carter finds Barrett

               
                                     CARTER
                         This is Major Carter. Agent Barrett 
                         needs medical attention we are in the 
                         Northeast corridor level 1.
 
               
               Teal’c touches the symbols and the red lights on the bomb go 
               off.
 
               
                                     LEE
                         That’s it. It’s off. I mean the lights 
                         turned off, that means its off right.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Indeed.

               
                                     LEE
                         Well, hey!

               
               Dr. Lee attempts to give Teal’c a high five.

               
               KEFFLER IS SEEN RUNNING IN A CORRIDOR. HE REACHES A LADDER AND 
               STARTS TO CLIMB. ANNA APPEARS.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         Drop the gun

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Anna

               
                                     ANNA
                         Drop it!

               
               Keffler drops the gun.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Come with me now to the lab and I will 
                         help you.
 
               
                                     ANNA
                         You can’t help me.

               
                                     KEFFLER
                         What ever they’ve told you. . .

               
                                     ANNA
                         It doesn’t matter. I never believed 
                         you.
 
               
                                     KEFFLER
                         Anna? I did it to help people.

               
                                     ANNA
                         All the evil I have seen in my mind, 
                         nothing you put inside me compares to 
                         what I see in you.
 
               
               Sounds of footsteps approaching Daniel, gun fire is heard as 
               Daniel crosses and comes down the ladder.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Anna!

               
               Daniel arrives and catches Anna as she falls cushioning her to 
               the floor.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What did you do?

               
               Anna opens her hand revealing the remote.

               
                                     ANNA
                         You couldn’t help me.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I’m so sorry.

               
               Anna dies and the scene widens out to reveal Keffler dead

               
               
               THE END
