Well it is said in the legion that excalibar will return in our greatest time of need. So when earth laying in ruin, all sgc destroyed and sg1 dead and the ori are standing over their dead corps, excalibar will return to free us and bring them back to life. Whole and that last bit was just to keep fans, happy if I had my way they would probably stay dead.

MITCHELL
A sword in a stone.

VALA
What's that supposed to mean?

DANIEL
Well, King Arthur once pulled a sword from a stone as proof of his righteousness and royalty.

MITCHELL
Excalibur.

DANIEL
Actually, that's a common misconception. See, Excalibur was forged by the Lady of the Lake at Avalon, but it wasn't given to King Arthur until after the sword he pulled from the stone broke in battle.

Did mitchell not use Excalibur in the series nine finale to defeat the black knight or at least,a valiant effort.

It wouldn't surprise me that the TPTB could use the Excalibur arc in the Arthurian mythology as some sort of weapon similar to the ori canceling weapon merlin made. Since Camlot comfirms that "Arthur" is a real person and not just a mythical figure. So why wouldn't excalibur be real?

The two swords that were in the stones, "Avalon" and "Camelot" were just swords designed to interact with realistic holograms.

Any Ideas were the TPTB will take the Arthur arc? I would like to see them translate all of merlin's records from his library in Camelot and find the addresses where arthur went.

If you think about it, by going after the grail, SG-1 will be following in Arthur's footsteps. Afterall, it was said Arthur left Camelot in search of the grail. Who knows, maybe they'll stumble upon some things he left along the way.

Excalibur is often said so be the same sword as the Lady in the Lake Sword. As Arthurian legend has been written by many authors, much like the Bible, there are some indescrifencies.

The SG-1 writers chose to make them different swords.

Yep, there are in fact 2 swords. Calibur, the sacred sword and Ex-Calibur, the new sacred sword. Calibur was reforged when it broke into Excalibur.

Stupid reference: if Excalibur shows up, will the Capricorn Saint show up too?

According to legend the sword in the stone broke which is my Arthur went to the Lady of the Lake, so that he could get a new and better sword named Excalibur. When Arthur was mortally wounded the sword was thrown back into the lake by one of Arthur's knights and the lady of the lake kept it.

The version I know of mentionned Merlin taking it back to Vivian (the Lady of the Lake). There was also a reference to another sword: Marmiadoise. That sword was forged using a bone of a dragon as its grip, rendering its bearer fierce as a dragon.

Stupid reference continued: If the Capricorn Saint does show up, will he use Excalibur or will the Genrômaoken still prevent him from doing so?

It sounds like one of the places we will see will be a gate that is beside a lake. Cool idea it just hit me. What if the Lady of the Lake is part of the race of the alien that kidnapped Daniel in that under water place and tried to force him to remember his wife from Babylon or someplace lik that. (don't know the episode name)
That would be a cool tie in from old episode.

I wouldn't be one bit surprised if Excalibur turned out to be Arthur's flagship.

That would be cool if Amaroka (the water alien's wife) was the lady in the lake, but she died during the time of Babylon. Maybe it's her sister. ;)

Mitchell mentions that merlin used his powers to create arthur... like the ori have done to Vala

the "Darth Vader" scenario

so it is possible that he could be the opposite for valas daughter
