    Divide & Conquer

    Or in this case, put the Jaffa and Tok'ra against one another and the problem will resolve itself. Except the Tau'ri are meddling in the affairs of the Goa'uld again. Good thing too or we would have had a civil unrest in the resistance.

    More applicable at the end was the phrase: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

    Anyhow...

    Another one of those episodes that has some really cool shots, like O'Neill firing the 50cal. -- quite spectacular. Or Bra'tac kicking some serious butt, or more accurately is getting kicked down but he fought bravely nonetheless. And the end scene where he makes that speech and throws the dagger into the ground.

    We stand... united!

    Just watched this on tv in the UK. I'm a very late fan to the Stargate series since 2012, yep very, very late lol. Great episode, love the interaction between the three sides and the tension. The only sensible people in this one are Sam, Selmak and Bratac. Even O'Neill's prejudice against the Tok'Ra is getting annoying, his attitude makes as much sense as African Americans assuming all white Americans are racist since only White Americans join the KKK.

    Very good episode, divide and conquer, also reminded me of "predator"



    I really thought Bra'tac was dead this time (no not really)

    A pretty good ep.

    Gotta agree that it's great to see Bra'tac and Jacob in the same ep together.

    Bit of a different take on the Ashrak compared to the one that killed Jolinar.

    This single blade did what we could not. It has brought us together. This blade has spilled the blood of Jaffa, of the Tok'ra and of the Tauri. By the hand of our common enemy, it has made us brothers. Together, we have ensured it will never spill our blood again.

    I just love that line. Its classic Bra'tac in something he would say. This episode I think addresses the hostility between the Tok'ra and Jaffa. I think it was something that needed to be addressed. Being on former different ends of the sides thier was bound to be some kind of tension between these two alien species. It was fun watching these two clash as they work out the differences. I also like seeing Jacob and Bra'tac interact as their respective leaders. We never really have seen these two in the same scene before. It was interesting while the Tok'ra and Jaffa fight the two leaders got along. Maybe a understanding of leadership. The only real compliant was Jack taking out that huge machine gun seemed random and pointless.

    One of the top episodes of the season for me.

    BRA'TAC: This single blade did what we could not. It has brought us together. This blade has spilled the blood of Jaffa, of the Tok'ra and of the Tau'ri. By the hand of our common enemy, it has made us brothers. Together, we have ensured it will never spill our blood again.

    A wonderful emotive end to a well executed series of events.

    Two former mortal enemies facing off with only Jack and the SG teams, with Bra'tac and Jacob's respected standing amongst their own people between them.

    An invisible enemy doing the divide and conquer bit. Great 'Predator' moment of Bra'tak being watched from above through the Ashrak's eyes and then attacked and dragged off. Only Arnie with the big gun was missing to shred the forest afterwards! However, Jack did get to do the gun bit later!

    For me the scenes when they went Ashrak hunting has one of the best uses of a BC forest in a Stargate episode. Gives a great alien feel to the scene with all the trees draped with the moss fronds.

    I like this episode, top 10-15 (yeah I know, out of 22).

    The Tok'ra and the Free Jaffa are at each others throats, and at the end, we're all friends.

    The best scene was Jack and the BFG, showed Jack was a badass.

    Tomorrow, the origins of the Tok'ra.

    My guess is it is because Jacob is a fairly new Tokra, or that in the presence of his daughter, he is more likely to take control.

    I stuck a VHS into my Hall of Res Machine...

    1. The ep sounded cool enough from the outset.

    2. If memory serves, Corin had a wedding or something on therefore had to be largely written out of this ep.

    3. Didn't think I'd ever get to see Bra'tac and Jacob in the same ep.

    4. Jack O'Neill as a diplomat, he didn't do too badly here, probably needed a warrior to talk to other warriors.

    5. Then Jack with that 360 shot...woha...

    6. And Bra'tac's comeback!

    Very cool ep.

    It sure took some serious talking on Jacob and Jack's part to keep Teal'c from killing that Tok'ra. I'm so glad he listened to them. I thought Bra'tac was gone for good, but I am glad that he survived.

    Loved this one! I'm so glad Bra'tac made it back alive.
