    VALA IS BACK!!!

    Okay so... without Crusade, there's no Camelot. By which I mean that without the backstory, there's no follow-up. I'm not entirely convinced that I like this episode, and the way it's constructed but like I said, we need the backstory. We need to know what's happening in the Ori galaxy to continue the overall arc.

    I'm definitely okay with using Vala as the character to bring us back to Celestis and the ultimate goal of the Ori, and to learn once again that they will stop at nothing to gain more power. That their followers are brainwashed enough to believe only a crusade (fitting) can cleanse the world of the non-believers.

    The medieval crusades were based on a similar notion. Daesh is based on a similar notion.

    A brainwashed masses doing one's bidding is a powerful tool towards control, and to paint non-believers as the radical left or fake news, or bad people. Yeah, I went there...

    Anywho, we're introduced to Tomin who, from the start, is a bit of a tragic character. Maybe deep down he knows that hurting people isn't the answer, and he did save Vala from Seevis, but his mind and his loyalty towards the Ori are preventing him from seeing the truth of the subjugation and that non-believers are not bad people at all. He fights with his faith, and what he was taught all his life. He's going to be conflicted.

    I like Tomin, if somewhat annoying he fights for the Ori.

    The B-plot though, could have done without it. You know, with Chekov and Shen... no need for that one.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Crusade?"

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible

    Is it just me or is Vala's shirt really transparent around 21 minutes and 4 seconds in (the scene where she is shackled and starving/dehydrated)? Cevis yaps and the camera zooms out and then there is approximately 5 seconds of left nippage.

    I'm not going to post a picture since this likely is against forum rules even if it possibly did air this way on Syfy.

    Two brilliant scenes here - first when Daniel (Vala) is behind Mitchell in the men's bathroom and Mitchell is slightly irritated and second when SG1 and Landry realize that Vala tries to tell them that she is pregnant.
    Rest was a bit boring for me.

    I even liked Ironside's turncoat character. Nice to see him play a good badguy..

    Although there is no interaction among SG-1 in that ep. I do really like it.
    I like the way the story is told by Vala, the narrative character of the whole ep.
    Since I usually do not like this kind of presentation, I am actually surprised, that I like it here. I absolutely love listen to CB's narrative voice and I think, the flashback scenes, the narrative Vala scenes plus the reactions of SG-1 and the Landry-Plot were very well balanced.
    Nice directing and editing!

    Really liked this episode. Get to see a more serious side of Ms Black. I loved the Darth Vader comment from Tealc. I liked the entire setup of the town. The acting was good from everybody. I think this is my favorite S9 episode.

    While she got on my nerves too, she was not that bad of a character.

    Thanks. I'm on a marathon, and sometimes I get episodes mixed together.
    Crusade made more sense after seeing Camelot, but I still don't like the Vala character

    @Jel
    No I'm not kidding, I was really fast forwarding. Sometimes the character Vala has that effect on me.

    I liked the 2 scenes where Daniel got beamed out, in the middle of explaining that there is no magic involved.

    Now the finale was cool, and this ep. was a build up to that. I understand better after watching the finale. Thanks for your reply by the way

    You got to be kidding. Crusade was one of the best episodes of S9

    I thought Ark of Truth gave a nice resolution to Tomin
