    This episode was pretty fantastic. It was the like the story I'd been waiting for this entire season, and I like that it's continued in Threads. Despite Daniel nearly dying again, I really liked his role in gaining the upper hand with RepliCarter, which I honestly wasn't expecting. Again, I like his continuing story in Threads with Oma and Anubis - we're finally getting somewhere with the main storyline.

    Everyone has a role to play, and the buildup to the activation of the weapon is epic.

    Yep, definitely one of my favorites - if not my favorite - this season.

    lol

    That's how I feel whenever an Earth character can understand a spoken alien language perfectly. Even Daniel as a linguist would have to be speaking all of these languages all the time to retain fluency, not to mention all of the other Earth languages he knows. With whom does he practice Goa'uld and Ancient, anyway? Are we supposed to believe he learned and retained entire languages through old books, ancient writing etched in stone, and no one to practice with?

    Sam and Jacob/Selmak understanding random Ancient words in Dekara is even more unbelievable to me, even with Daniel's notes.
    rest easy now

      i know quite a few people who need to keep reading/speaking a foreign language to 'keep up' their levels of fluency, while a few others (a lot rarer), seem to do well, even after 5+ years of inactivity with that language...

        Great part II following a great part I. Many characters involved, my usual way of watching and doing something else simultanously didn't work here - too much details that I missed. But rewatching was double pleasure. Daniel dead - oh no, he is needed and - fortunately - still on the payroll.

          Part 2 is a lot more entertaining than part 1.

          Let's spend some time in Danny's world! -- Yes, let's.

          It has some good action. Great character interaction, and some really cool shots.
          I absolutely love all the images of those gates activating.

          The replicators are dusted but Ba'al still escapes. We'll get him some other time. For now, we'll just have to take the victory.

          Oh, and Daniel dies ... again.

          How would you rate SG-1's "Reckoning, Part 2"?

          Excellent
          Good

                More likely, something to do with the Simpsons.

                  The episodes Jack forgot to tape perhaps.

                      On a planet somewhere their are a bunch of Serpent Guards who don't know Apophis died 3 years ago.

                      I think the fracturing of the team really hurts this episode. Its a good episode but in an episode where the Replicators are finally defeated, I guess I would like to see them together. That said their is plenty of action to keep one entertained. I especially like Daniel and RepliSam.

                          Great episode full with action, jokes, replicators Goau'lds and everything. Teasing between Jacob and Baal was perfect. What was emotional for me was the look at the gates when they were opening. So many places that SG1 had visited, so many memories of incredible episodes. ( ou yeeah pink planet) Just perfect.
                          I was also a bit sad that Raplicarter was destroyed because AT was briliant in that role and the character itself was full of potential.
