    Default Paradox?

    Why isn't there a young Teal'c there when the fifty years older Teal'c goes back in Unending? Wouldn't there be two of them?

    Because he stuck in the force field, everything outside the reversed but not him. So there is no younger version because the older version didn't de-age like everyone else.

    Teal'c didn't go back in time. The ship was in a time bubble where time moved very fast, making time outside appear to be at a stand still. Fifty years pass in the bubble in mere seconds. When Carter throws the time bubble in reverse, everything moves back to the starting point in mere seconds. Imagine it like a movie being rewound, and you're watching the end to the beginning. Teal'c is isolated in his own time bubble so he isn't thrown in reverse with everything else. That's why he seemed to vanish from the bridge.

    You're welcome! I had to see the episode twice to pick up on this.
