Who can be trusted? What is the truth? These are some of the questions that you will be asking yourself as you read this episode. It is a great episode that will set the stage for the amazing season finale. I loved this cat and mouse style episode that really left me guessing until the end. :)

I've began to re-read this episode and I still like it. I'm at the beginning of Act Four now. I quite like the interviews scene, if it was a filmed episode then I'd imagine it would be a nice fluid and well shot sequence. I also like the development this episode got going between David and Tom, and Lenori and Christine.

Anyway, off to finish the episode.

OK I have finished this episode, and again I enjoyed it. A did have a few questions though....translating co-ordinates? Erm...what?! Also, I still found it surprising with who actually turned out to be the Kih'Andari agent. I also thought the scene with Lenori in Kalos' quarters was pretty funny. Quite enjoyed this episode.

I'm glad you again enjoyed the episode. Lenori really knows how to keep someone distracted. :D

Translating the co-ordinates means that they're just indicated in different cyphers, relating to the language the entire tablet is in. So, they're not written in regular numbers. It can take a moment to translate them, yet it doesn't take too long, since the next episode, "Judgment Day," picks up only hours after this one.

Review

Itís the penultimate episode so going in I was expecting great things from "Secrets and Lies"

I really liked the relationships explored in this episode. The friendship between Tom and David was very well done, I've said before that sometimes these two fell underused, so it was good to see them getting some proper development. Grant and Sivea made me laugh, Grant thinks she hawt! :) I find myself almost hoping that maybe something will develop there, but I get the feeling that if it ever did it would end in huge tears. The Christine and Lenori friendship too developed, switching the roles around, the season is kind of a mirror for them in that they've switched roles.

Throughout the episode I was wondering "What is Kalos up to?" I suspected that he would turn out to be a Kih'Andari. The cunning disguise is an old idea but when used properly very good, and in this episode it worked well.

I did wonder if the Draque and Kih'Andari were working together in their worship of the Sentinels. Though The real identity of the spy came as a surprise, as did his sudden escape with the Ultera coordinates.

A couple of points though, How long ranger are the Draque transporters? They must have a huge capability.
And It was mentioned Earth battlecruisers are unable to travel through the Spacegate, what kind of size is the gate then? I always pictured it as pretty much a Supergate as seen on SG1.

Overall a good episode that sets up nicely for the finale by tying together a few threads and bringing a few interesting character points to light.

Oh and I'm a fan of good cliffhangers, and this one was good!

A couple of points though,

I had completely forgotten about these questions actually. Finally remembered. ;)

No specific range has been established yet. But we do know they do indeed have a huge capability.


And It was mentioned Earth battlecruisers are unable to travel through the Spacegate, what kind of size is the gate then? I always pictured it as pretty much a Supergate as seen on SG1.

The Spacegate is smaller than a Supergate. It's only designed for ships between fifteen and twenty decks. They kind of combine elements from the Stargates in space on Atlantis, and the Supergates on SG-1.

Thanks. I'm glad you liked it, and it's always good to see your reviews.

Even though this gate came first.

That's very true. We definitely didn't steal the Spacegate idea from SG-1. ;)

Jelgate's Two Cents
If you like the space and shooting guns aspect of Stargate, this isn't the episode. If you like the politicial aspect of Stargate this is a magnificent episode. The B story deals with Christine and Lenori trying to unlock the location of the tablet of Ultera. The main plot was so fascinating. My first when seeing the Vorian minster was I didn't like him. It was nice to see some charcter development about the friendship between David and Tom. I definatly didn't expect him to be working the Vorian terriost group. I was more surprised that his assistant was working for the Draqe and I was angry when they stole the tablet. The set at the of this episode leads me to believe that the S1 finale will be spectular. I suspect there will be a huge space battle. The look at Grant at end makes me beleive the writer should have put to be continued at the end of the episode.

Questions/Quote
1)What was the relevance of the scene with Sivok
2)Did Tom ever send the letter or is that in a future episode
Tom:I am a man with many talents

That's very true. We definitely didn't steal the Spacegate idea from SG-1. ;)
Or did you
