Robert C. Cooper
Ceiling is moving down of Vala and Jackson, as they try to figure
it all out.
Think! you are the expert on all things
Yeah you didn't care about that two
minutes ago. *mimicking* Oooh lets try
this pot, how about this pot
Sorry could you possible think a little
The universe is infinite
No doubt it's deliberately ironic that
we're in an ever decreasing space.
No it's taken from an ancient proverb,
there is only one truth the universe
How does that help us?
There is only one truth *points at silver
pot* this pot say the treasure is in
It's not in either of them.
I know we did it wrong so...we have
to...see if we can do it again. *they
put both lids back on* there is only
one truth the universe is infinite.
There forth the statement about the
treasure being in this pot has to be
false so the treasure must be in *opens
gold lid, inside is a gold coin. The
ceiling rises again and the door opens.*
wow. Good job you know your ancient
proverbs otherwise we'd been......Mitchell.
Jackson runs off, Vala look down at coin the after Jackson, Bites
Teal'c still trying to hold ceiling up. Mitchell trying to put
pieces in order
Yo feel free to jump in here anytime.
Jackson and Vala reach door.
Hey! We got a little problem in here.
Uh...what's the puzzle?
There's eight stones with symbols on
them and some ancient writing. I think
it is --
Describe the writing.
Uh...U with a square over it. Chair
with a square, Upside- down backwards
L call that 7, Squares unevenly stacked.
That chair thingy again. Big N and fat
Uh reflect...it means reflect.
Uh...reflect, reflect, reflect...reflect
a meaningful path. Put those pieces
to reflect a path to enlightenment
Yeah. That tells me exactly nothing!!
I'm sorry I can't help if I can't see
the symbols on the stones you're suppose
to put in order.
Reflect. Double 8, 4 reflect 8...*picks
up stone, stops, notices if he covers
part of symbol on stone, makes a four,
either way.* 4 *gets to work*...6.
Sound of moving stops.
Look I didn't hear any screaming or
squishing sounds. So...
The door raises revealing Teal'c and Mitchell they stand.
You did it.
Yeah. Thanks the symbols are actually
the numbers 1 through 8 and their mirror
Centre Chamber, Mitchell walks up to sword in the stone.
Alright. We passed the tests so...this
Mitchell grabs the sword and with some effort, pulls it from
the stone. He turns to the others and behind him a Knight in
shining armor appears. Teal'c raises his P-90 as Mitchell turns
to look, the knight raises his sword.
Should've known it wouldn't be that
The knight takes a swing at Mitchell with his sword,
Weird. *another few clashes, as he rounds
next to Jackson and Vala.*
Uh...you...uh...done this before?
uh...fight a knight in shining armor.
No can't say that I have.
Well you're doing good
Yeah...took a little fencing in college.
Another couple of clashes of swords
Ooook...need a little help.
Teal'c fires a clip of bullets which fly straight through the
It appears to be a hologram.
*obviously a little tired, leans on sword*A hologram? *knight
comes up behind him, slashing him through. He drop to his knees.
There are no tears or blood on his back.*
I don't think it actually cut you.
Well it hurt like hell. *gets to his
feet defending against another blow,
the second one the knight slices the
sword right through Mitchell's arm,
I don't know. I don't think he's actually
*grabs sword, obviously in a lot of
pain* Ok so I flunked fencing. *gets
up, defending himself once again, does
well until the knight hits him in the
leg. And he's down again*
Colonel Mitchell. The sword. *Mitchell
throws it to Teal'c but it passes straight
The knight makes to finish the Job, but Mitchell rolls out of
the way. He goes a grab the sword just before he can raise it
the knight gets in another shot, and Mitchell falls.
ok. That thing is going to kill him!
everybody get to the rings.
Teal'c pulls Mitchell to his feet and as he does so Mitchell
flashes back, to his F-302 being hit, and then hitting the ice,
the nurses and finally to his physiotherapy.
He falls, and his therapist grabs him.
Ok...that's enough for today.
No I can do this. *pushes away therapist,
back to present, and pushes away Teal'c*
Moves to swipe at the knight, its defended Mitchell kicks the
knights hand, with several swipes hits the knight, with on through
A final shot through the chest and the hologram disappears. Mitchell
Oh come on...that's got to be it. *Teal'c
heads over helping him up*
I don't understand we solved the riddles.
*Teal'c looks at her* well he solved
one...and he solved one...and he won
And what? Nothing?
But you're the only one who defeated
the knight. That sword was obviously
designed to sense who ever pulled it
from the stone. What if there's sensors
Are you suggesting that we should leave?
It's worth a try.
*little out of breath* Alright. *walks
over to console, the other move to centre*
If nothing happens just join us.
Mitchell activates the rings and the three disappear, as soon
as they do everything starts to fall in.
ahhhhh *hits console buttons.*
On Prometheus. Rings room.
the whole place is collapsing we must
have done something wrong.
Vala starts to move away, Jackson and Mitchell look at her
Truth of spirit.
Truth of spirit. What did you take?
*pulls coin out of bra.*
Mitchell rings back down with Coin, everything still caving in,
run to room with the puzzle Vala and Jackson were. Gets to the
two pots, looks between them unsure...opens gold pot puts in
gold hesitates, looks round, then closes lid. Place stops falling
in. heads back to the centre room. Nothing different. Walks over
to console with a sigh hits a button, but then spots sword. Takes
sword and places it back in the stone. There's a bright flash
and around him is a load of gold and riches.
Airman looking around at all the things, Vala, with a tiara on
her head, lying in a pile of gold throwing buckets of it over
herself. Mitchell walks over to Jackson.
We are not gonna let her keep that are
*looks up and over at Vala, whose obviously
heard Mitchell* No.
Good. *Vala not looking happy* alright...figures
room full of golden jewels and Doctor
Daniel Jackson find the one book. So
what's it about?
Uh...actually it's a story. It's a...written
like fiction. *kid with his book awww*
Once upon a time...
uh...once upon a time there was a race
of people that were on a great journey
through space across the universe they
were called the Alterra um...after much
time...I think this means thousands
of years... they found a great belt
...And they lived happily ever after.
Jackson stands up, something in the book obviously peeking his
Have you found something Daniel Jackson?
It says...that the Alterraians named
their new home Avalon and that they
built many astriaporta.
the Ancients built the stargates. *all
three look at her*
Uh...well...it stands to reason that
they weren't always called the ancients.
What do you care? You got your treasure.
*emphasizing thinking* mmmmm...let's
see what's of more value a few gold
trinkets that apparently I won't be
able to keep. *throws a gold necklace,
getting up* or...previously undiscovered
secrets about... the gate builders *walks
over* the most powerful race ever to
inhabit the galaxy.
You realize what this could mean...
*down of realization* whoa! ...we've
always presumed that the ancients were
the first evolution of humans in this
galaxy...But... but this...*moves hands
over book* this is the first evidence
suggesting they came here long ago from
somewhere far, far away.
Colonel Mitchell! *he's found some odd
looking thing, that's big round and
has a spear type of diamond coming out
of the top, they all head over*
*grins, huge looks at Vala*...one of
these things is not like the others.
SGC Corridor, Landry, Jackson and Mitchell walking along, Vala
It's much, much more than that...we
know the ancients left our galaxy for
Pegasus and returned later when they
lost the war with the wraith but what
happened to them?
I thought they ascended...?
well...some did that we know of...but...what
if the others went home? Even if they
didn't, the book I read suggested that
the alterraians left civilization behind.
and your point is?
my point is that we haven't met a single
living ancient who has been willing
to share their knowledge freely with
us and there could be an entire advance
civilization of them out there somewhere
in another galaxy. I mean isn't that
why we're doing this? All of this? The
Stargate program, the budget? Isn't
that so we can go and meet new races
gather advanced technology possibly
learn about ourselves in the process?
Oh come on you do it to meet women
She has a point sir.
I've been thinking I need to get out
on an off world mission or two.
*they get on lift.* Yeah...just to get...a
feel for it.
Always do everything you ask of those
good movie. *doors close*
Laugh if you want to but I believe finding
these Alterraians and where they came
from should be our top Priority from
this point forward. They are...the gate
Nobody's laughing Dr Jackson. The universe
is a big place... tell me where they
are and how to get there and I'll order
you to go.
Doors open and all head out...
I'm...I'm...I'm not saying this is gonna
be easy...I mean if... if they're from
a distant galaxy, our network of stargates
might not even connect. And even if
it does we know the massive power requirements
necessary to dial Pegasus and they're
relatively close... in intergalactic
terms. But on the bright side uh...according
to the text we found in the *they stop
outside Landry's office* Glastonbury
cavern the ancient device we discovered
may be capable of intergalactic communication.
Thank you Dr Jackson I'm sure you'll
keep me posted. *nods at Mitchell* Colonel.
General. *Landry heads into his office
Jackson, step forward leans his forehead against frame, Mitchell
He has no idea what you just said.
Door opens. Mitchell Jumping to attention.
Someone want to tell me why *Looks at
Vala* she's still on my base? *to Mitchell*
And uh...yes I did
Landry head back into his office, shutting door.
Well I think its incredible *Grins*
The Jaffa of the Omakna equal as many
as all the other regional coalitions...and
they strongly support Gerak.
of this I am aware.
if we allow them even one more vote
based on unconfirmed military strength,
the council will be in Gerak's hands.
Until a proper inspection-...
I'm sorry. We are all working very hard.
it just seems as though Gerak is winning.
Bra'tac and Rya'c are negotiating with
coalitions who have yet to declare their
I did not fight for the freedom of all
jaffa only to have it corrupted by a
few power hungry individuals.
nor did I.
I just do not understand why you have
chosen to spend so much time with the
Tau'ri... at such a critical stage.
my friends from the Tau'ri are largely
responsible for the Jaffa being free...and
as thanks they have been treated with
mistrust and disrespect. Until all Jaffa
see that the old ways are not the future
I will do whatever I need to do to enlighten
And how does chasing ancient history
Ancient knowledge is what defeated the
Goa'uld and the replcators... and I
believe that one day it will unite the
Jaffa in a nation of peace. I will prove
it. *walks off*
I hope so.
In a science lab, Dr lee, is hanging about Big thingy they found
early, while Vala and Jackson have a little argument.
I have been around the galaxy long enough
to know that knowledge is power...and
understanding the technology that was
left behind by the ancients is the most
powerful knowledge around.
...*tense* and if you think I'm gonna
stay linked with you for the rest of
Focus! Maybe we should focus... on the
task at hand...
Yeah *clears throat* well...the device
obviously has a power source and...uh
I don't think it's been depleted.
*takes a deep breath* ok...when I read
this was a communication device, I realized
that the shape of these recess spaces
looked familiar. *picks up black stone*
these stones are actually an ancient
form of communication device that links
their users psychically, allowing them
to see through each others eyes. it
appears that they are actually meant
to be used in conjunction with this
So...what happens when you attach the
We're gonna find out.
Uh...these stones were originally set
for General O'Neill and one... Joe Spencer.
Barber from Indiana.
Yeah weird guy. I read the file.
...uh well...anyway after a lot of tedious,
although I must say, ultimately very
brilliant...uh work...if I do say so
myself. *Jackson puts hand to his shoulder
to get him on path* I was able to reset
Don't they have to be activated by someone
with the ancient Gene? Same file.
Well...that's what we thought at first,
but no... like a lot of ancient technology
the stones actually just have to be
By someone with the gene. That's a guess.
No you're right. Uh...which these obviously
So...anyone of us can...take the pony
yeah I figured that was gonna be me.
I mean I did... miss the Daedalus for
You're gonna... dine out on that for
Ya yea...like you wouldn't believe.
Well...no ones gonna make an argument
against that. You are the worlds foremost
*makes quotation marks with hands* expert
of the ancients but we've got two stones.
*walks around Jackson picking up other
stone* yes. And this ones mine. Thank
Excuse me...how do you figure that?
well Daniel and I are linked. *rests
arm on Jackson's shoulder*
I'll just point out for the record we
don't have to be... *pushes her arm
of his shoulder*
He's only guessing that this device
is for communication. What if it's a
transporter of some kind and he gets
whisked away and can't get back?
Actually we have done a fair bit of
research on this device and I can say
with absolute...relative *Vala grins*
certainty *gives up, sighs* oh look...
we have studied devices like this for
years and at some point ultimately you
jut have to turn it on.
I'm gonna have it a try.
where he goes I go.
I'm not going anywhere.
So he think.
*through gritted teeth* it's a communication
I'm going to watch from the observation
room. *head off*
Alright. Good luck *follows Dr Lee*
So what so we do?
well...I'm guessing we just put these
two stones in any two of these spots.
Well there aren't any makings to indicate
otherwise so...any two. And...*they
both put in their stones, Vala closing
her eyes waiting, the spear thing flashes
and the two fall to the ground*
*grabs phone* Med team to science lab
like soaring through space...to a planet that looks much like
earth. In a old authentic house, Vala walks forward, looking
around. Jackson behind her, stops.
Hello? *Vala turns, buts its not Vala
we see but the body she is inhabiting*
please don't be afraid *then to Jackson,
but instead of Jackson we see the body
he's inhabiting* My name is Daniel Jackson.
(in Sallis) It's me. Vala.
(in Harrid) OK...Not a transporter.
(in Sallis)Where are we?
I don't know.
They look around and come to a mirror, having a good look.
But I think we're in them. *Vala pokes
In science lab two gurneys in now, with Vala and Jackson lying
on them. Dr Lam, and nurse and Dr Lee are all Hazmats, Teal'c
and Mitchell watch from Observation room.
Blood pressure and Heart rate are normal.
Pupils are slightly dilated. Now we're
sure this is because of the device?
They also passed out before when they
were separated because of the bracelet.
The reaction was virtually instantaneous
after the device was activated... Anyway
there's no discernable energy...so...
And we found no contagions...alright...*removes
head of Hazmat*....I wanna get an EEG
going but my first impression here is
that they're in some kind of sleep state...
*grabs intercom as Lee removes head
of his haz mat* Maybe we should disconnect
uh...for all we know this could be perfectly
normal...I mean this could be the way
the device actually works.
And could you give me some time here
before we go messing around with that
*gives her a look* I wouldn't call it
Look for all we disconnecting the stones...could
put them in further jeopardy.
So how are things on Dakara?
about as well as here.
Jackson and Vala still looking around, Vala looking out window,
turns to Jackson.
I don't understand. This is...an odd
communication device....I mean...I can't
talk to this...*looks down* poor woman...I...I
have no access to her... her mind...her
thoughts...her memories. I'm just...inside
of her looking out through her eyes.
Yeah...Jack and Joe Spencer described
the experience as having visions of
what was happening to the other.
Were they ever in total control of each
No. but they weren't using the stones
in conjunction with the ancient terminal
either. Its possible it was meant to
work this was so that we can...communicate
with others without intruding on the
minds of those we're connected to. They're
just... temporary transmitters.
*walks over to mirror* Do you think
we're actually in another galaxy? *pokes
at her chest*
I don't know.
why these people?
I don't know. *reading a plaque in ancient*
well maybe its just me but...this house...these...*short
laugh* clothes...*walks over to him*
we don't look the way I'd expect the
ancients to look.
what do you suppose their names are?
Harrid and Sallis.
*frowns at him* How do you know that?
oh...cause it um...it says so um...*points
at plaque* right here. It says *moving
his hand along works* "this is the *mumbles*
home of Harrid and Sallis ciseru"
wait I missed that...you...you mumbled
No I didn't.
well...you said something...that I couldn't
Well... I...I didn't say it cause I...
I don't really know what it means. So
I don't want to say it out loud cause
I don't ...know what it means.
well go on...
*not looking at her* Nuptial...it means
*grins* as in we're...?
married. Yah. Lets go look outside.
They head outside, people around them carrying on with medieval
Not quite what I imagined when I...pictured
a civilization of gate builders.
No...Something tell me this is not the
same people who built a spaceship capable
of traveling across the universe.
Above the Sun! Harrid. Sallis.
*Quietly to Jackson* What?
uh...I think that means good morning.
*waves to the Man* Above the sun to
*through gritted teeth but smiling at
the man and his wife* Above the sun?
uh...I think he's speaking ancient...uh
I think the communicators translating
I couldn't read the sign.
maybe it only works for spoken language.
see you at prostration.
*hesitates* prostration it is.
prostration it is.
The Man gives his wife look, and heads off.
*cuddles up to Jackson, who places are
round her, forced grin* so what do you
want to do Harrid? Or is it Sallis?
*Moves her away an inch* people are
starting to stare.
well...shall we walk about and try to
appear normal? Hmmm?
*takes her hand hooking it through his
arm. They head off* nope. Not what I
was expecting at all.
on the Brightside I think he was looking
at me when he said Harrid.
please he was staring at me the whole
SGC, Dr Lam knocks on Landry's office door, walks in
Hey! Come in. *she steps in,* now I
can't decide...if I...if I like the
desk...here? *waves hands above desk
looking at her*
*shrugs* where else are you going to
put it... out on the hall?
Daniel and Vala are stable. Based on
rapid eye movements and brainwave patterns
I'm guessing it's actually some kind
of induced dream like condition.
Dr Jackson believes that...the device
was used for long range communication...is
it possible that's what they're doing?
Talking to someone, somewhere...out
I don't know.
I'm heading to the mess...
I'm good. thanks. I should get back
to Daniel and Vala.
Oh...course...Just keep me posted. *she
nods, starts to head off* Caroline.
*she turns, he seems a little off...*
You seem to be... settling in okay...
I don't know if I'll ever get used to
this place its pretty uh... *searches
for right word, sighs*
yeah...and...uh...working for you just
makes the whole thing just that more
Well You didn't have to take the job
are you kidding...who could refuse it?
Besides at the time General O'Neill
didn't tell me you'd be my boss.
He's funny that way.
hmmm...Ha Ha. By the way the desk looks
fine the way it is. *heads off*
*from down the hall* You never were
happy with anything the way it was.
People gather before a building as a man (Administrator) lights
All hallow the Ori.
All hallow the Ori. ADMINISTRATOR: On
their great power we shall meditate
here in this day. *Gets down on his
knees with book, in from on torch.*
*walking through crowd* Prostration
Jackson and Vala get down on their knees, copying crowd, a man
(Fanis) kneels beside Jackson.
we must meet. By the portical of light,
at the hour of beligh. Speak not.
Oh greatness that is the Ori. You guide
us and give meaning to our daily lives.
We beseech you, give us strength.
*repeat* All Hallow the Ori...All Hallow
Back at house. Jackson and Vala walk in quickly shutting door
and leaning against it.
Well...that was fun. Six hours of Prostration.
*Jackson starts snooping round* why
don't we just...tell someone who we
are and what's going on...I mean isn't
that the whole point of this...to communicate?
I don't think these people are going
to entirely understand. Hey did you
hear what that guy said to me when we
first came to the service.
Something about meeting...
Yeah at the portical of light on the
hour of beligh.
*frustrated* What's that suppose to
I have no idea. *picks up ladle, looking
at it, then puts it down*
*little calmer* what are you looking
I don't know...huh...some...reason as to why we're in...these
particular people...in these specific bodies...I mean...*heads
upstairs her following* It can't be totally random.
Well... I have a more pressing question.
Do you have any idea how we're suppose
to *Jackson throws some stuff out of
cupboard at her, she shoves them away*
detach from them?
*stops thinks, shakes head* No...That's
another thing that's got me worried...have
*nods, starts pulling of shoes* mmmm
I mean... it doesn't seem to be something
that I can just will to happen.
Vala spots bed runs over diving on it. Happy sigh.
Maybe its about removing the stones
from the device on earth.
Yeah unfortunately we can't tell the
people on earth that we need them to...
remove them...I guess we'll just have
to wait for them to figure it our for
Maybe they have already and it had no
*stops looks at her* I'm just gonna
rule out that possibility. *walks over
*Starts pulling up mattress* do you
think these people are in our bodies?
I don't know...I mean...this can't be
how the technology is supposed to work.
*looks in book, little surprised shuts
it* hey. *shows him the book*
*kneels down by bed, still searching*
Yeah...it's the book that some of the
villagers were walking around with.
It says on the front...uh..."The...
book of the Origins, blessed are the
I think you should take a look at it.
Oh I think I've seen enough...I mean...prostration
for six hours...*looks under bed* Give
us strength. *looks up* you know its
all very clear.
I think you'd find it really interesting.
Yeah...when did you start being able
to read ancient?
I can't. *Jackson frowns* but this looked
Vala opens book and inside the pages are cut with the two stones
resting in it.
Someone knocks on the door, Jackson fixes his clothes, as Vala
comes downstairs. Opens door.
Thank those fill of value. I was worried
when you did not meet me.
Yes...sorry about that.
Why did you not meet me? *looks at Vala*
and why are you not sharing leaves with
the administrators wife?
We are already suspected we must not
alter our behavior...
Suspected of what?
Harrid what ails you? Did I not know
better I would fear you were trying
to entrap me.
No I woŚwo-wouldn't dream of trying
Entrap you? How?
Stop this. please.
Ok...you know what? Uh...please...would
you...would you sit *Fanis sits, to
Vala* go with me. My name is Daniel
Jackson and I am in the mind of Harrid.
I am able to speak through him by use
of a communication technology that we
believe was first constructed and used
by a race known as the Alterrans
and I'm Vala...Manderan
How do you do?
*laughs* by the stars. Forgive me...I
*happy faces shared between him and
Vala* uh...nice to meet you...ummm we're
from a...a place called earth.
Can I speak with Harrid?
No...ehum... his conscious appears to
be suppressed so long as we're connected.
Harrid always suspected the stones were
a means of communication.
You know about the stones?
we are curators...investigators of the
past. The stones were discovered some
time ago in what we believe are the
remains of an ancestral burial ground
not far from here.
Why are you hiding them? JACKSON: Both?
Such investigation is sacrilege.
you're not allowed to investigate your
If such a history contradicts the book
We have uncovered evidence that we believe
proves a race of humans predates out
supposed creating by the ori.
Excuse me...Daniel...what is these gods...the
ori...are the people left behind by
You think they ascended?
It's possible...the alterraians left
a long, long time ago. And what we know
of... the ancients they learned to evolve
and ascend. What if the people who remained
here did too...
that would mean these people are a subsequent
evolution of humans which is apparently
what happened in our galaxy after the
ancients we know ascended.
And it would explain why they're not
as advanced as we might expect.
No...but the religion doesn't suit the
profile. The ascended beings I know
don't pose as gods...I mean that's the
one explicit rule that they do follow...
Is that they don't meddle in the affairs
of the lower planes existence.
The Ori are not posing. We do not doubt
their power...just their word and intention.
The power is as real as the strength
and belief in all followers. *looks
at Vala* You are late for leaves with
the administrators wife...Sallis and
she are acquaintances.
So what should I do?
Can you not disconnect and allow Sallis
No...apparently we can't do that.
then you must pose as Sallis...or we
will be discovered.
*Jackson gives her a worried look* I
can do that.
Dakara. Teal'c rushes down steps in his council get up. Stops
The council has already taken respite.
The vote was quick. I delivered yours
by proxy. Gerak's motion was resolved
by a slim majority. The jaffa will be
ruled by high council. Votes will be
attributed to the various coalition
representatives based on military assets.
the new leader of the Jaffa nation.
Fanis and Jackson still in house waiting. Jackson gets some cups
You said that the Ori may have ascended...what
does that mean?
Where we come from some people who...
use to look a lot like us evolved physically
and mentally so much they...found a
way to shed their physical body and
*pours* live as energy on another higher
plane of existence...some called it
enlightenment and came with it a much
greater understanding of the universe
and all its knowledge...now this happened
a long time ago and I believe that those
people may have originally come from
And those ascended beings as you call
them...do not guide you and ask that
you worship them?
No...in fact they believe so strongly
in free will that they.... would not
even intervene and use their knowledge
even if it meant the destruction of
an entire galaxy full of us regular
Such is not the case with the Ori.
Yes so they...ask that you worship them...and
yet...conceal the truth of your existence
That is not all.
What are you gonna do?
we are gathering as much evidence as
we can. Our hope is that one day we
will have enough proof...*sighs* to
convince even the most devout believers.
In the meantime... we meet in secret
and share with those who we trust with
what we have learned. We keep hidden
those artifacts which prove our claims
in case one or more of us our discovered.
JACKSON; How many of you are there?
A few...our numbers are growing. Some
believe that the fact that we have not
yet been discovered is further proof
that the Ori are not all powerful and
all knowing...others wonder us they
are not just giving us the opportunity
to see the error of our ways and repent.
*sounds outside the windows, Fanis heads
over looks out* A crowd gathers at the
That's an Altar?
I cannot be seen with you.
Jackson hurries outside, pushing people out of the way. The Administrator
And so said Dzaraya before the battle
of ages. He spoke to the sky and said.
"And the people shall deliver unto you
the wicked for your divine judgment
where their sins shall be weighed in
the balance of all that is just and
Let go off me!! Get your hands off me!!
*Two men drag her towards the altar...she's
kicking and shouting.* Daniel!!!
It didn't go so well...*the men chain
her to the centre*
Yeah I can see that. *he walks forward*
excuse me...*two men grab him, pulling
him back he tries to fight them off*
Harrid stand back. Sallis has been overcome.
No she hasn't... if you'll just let
me explain...listen to me!! *in the
background Fanis runs off*
Fear not...for the Ori see all...outside
and within. If your heart is pure and
your devotion unwavering they will protect
you. They'll cleanse your being and
you'll be taken to be with them forever.
If not...may the fire burn you down
to the ground and lay you in the dust.
Administrator nods to the men by the large bowl, one of them
takes a torch and light the liquid in the bowl.
Hallowed are the Ori.
They pour the burning liquid down the gutter type thing, it goes
through a maze of paths...which head toward Vala, starting from
the outer rim heading inwards to the centre.
In the science Lab, Lam by Vala's bed.
Heart rate is 140, she's in distress.
Daniels heart rate and BP are increasing
*walks into room* pull the stones.
*walks over to device tugging on stones
hard* I can't
The fire is spreading round, Vala tugging on the chains.
What the hell did you say?
*panicked* I think at first it was what
I didn't say. You see Apparently there's
a blessing you're suppose to recite
over the leaves before you drink, which
nobody warned me about. Then I think
its what I did say. I was trying to
politely explain what was going on and
then his *pokes head at Administrator*
wife started screaming and accusing
me of being overcome at which point
I suggested that she might want to think
about procreating...with herself
OH!! Oh...ohh!! Listen *struggling against
the men, turns to Administrator* please
listen...you have to believe me!! This
is not what it looks like Sallis is
not possessed. Okay! Now this is going
to sound crazy oooh but uh...we're from
another galaxy! *Administrator looks
at him* That's right We're using a communication
technology that allows us to take over
a body from very far away and...and...and...
and...and then just talk to you! We
just want to talk to you!! *Administrator
Fire spreading faster getting closer to Vala.
Lee trying to crowbar stones off, Vala's body is obviously stressed.
Ok...this is getting worse. I'm administering
a sedative. Hopefully it'll calm things
The fire has started to drip into the centre near the fabric
of Vala's dress.
*really frightened* Daniel!!!
Okay listen to me! Listen to me you
have to believe me!! You're killing
an innocent person!
Daniel!!!! *screaming* AHHHHHH!!!!
Blessed are those that deliver us from
Vala's dress catches on fire, moving up her dress
aghhhhhh!!! *entire body erupts into
flames, her screaming still heard, Jackson
ducks his head unable to watch*
Vala flat lines.
She's in defib! Code blue! *grabs paddles*
Charging at 200
Mitchell pulls out a 9 mil aims it at the device Lee stands in
front of it.
No no...Don't shoot!!
You got a better Idea?
You might... you might cause a surge...you
could kill them both. You might detonate
the power source...now now...come on!!
Vala no longer screaming the flames are full on... some of the
crown stare while others turn away. Suddenly a gust of wind flows,
blowing out the fire. Her body lays limp, skin and clothes charred.
All turn to see what's going on. There stands a Prior all the
crowd fall to their knees. Jackson moves slowly to Vala kneeling
down beside her, distraught...he rest her head on his shoulder,
hugging her gently and leans his cheek against her head. He undoes
the chain, taking her hand in his, looks back at Prior.
Lam still working to save Vala.
Charge to 60 Clear!! *Landry enters
Observation room, watching.* still in
defib, charging again. Clear. *checks
Vala's wrist* I've got not pulse she's
gone into Asystole. I'm calling it.
Mitchell looks up to Landry possibly for him to tell Lam to carry
on, Landry shakes his head.
The Prior walks up to Jackson, who has his head bowed, holding
Vala as best he can. The orb on the Priors staff begins to glow,
as Vala's clothes, hair and skin become a new...
Lam checking Jackson
His vitals are stable for the moment.
You Still can't pry the stones off?
and you don't want me to shoot it...
then how do we unplug this thing?
I don't know...
at the very least we need to find a
way to get that bracelet off of Dr Jackson.
They're still linked and without Vala
he'll probably--*Vala's Life signs start
to spike* she's got a heart beat.
Vala sags against Jackson, as the orb light goes out.
*voice quiet, frightened* Daniel?
*moves hand to her face* you ok?
*shaking moves into Jackson's arms cuddling
to him, he holds her tight.*...I've
got tingles all over. And don't flatter
yourself I'm pretty sure its not you.
*Tears fill her eyes and fall down her
face as Jackson rubs her back*
*to Prior* Thank you.
Thank the Ori. Stand. You will come
with me. *he turns and starts walking.*
I think he wants us to follow him...can
If it means getting away from here *nods,
and with Jackson's help stands. Together,
they follow to Prior...*
Hallowed are the children of the Ori.
Hallowed are we. Hallowed are the Ori,
*they all stand watching*
Hallowed are the Ori.
