Excellent episode, Sokar really was a very nicely done up character, the only thing I hate is that he wasn't around for longer. And something that I wasn't suspecting was at the end of Part 1, when Apophis revealed himself, just brilliant.
This epside (along with Part 1, Jolinar's Memories) goes in to my list of favourite episodes.
I agree with everything you said. It is too bad Sokar couldn't be around a bit longer, I think they could have done some more really good episodes with him. This one and Jolinar's Memories are probably my 2 favorite episodes from Season 3.

Soakr's Jaffa are quite unique looking. Do we ever see them with their helmet's up?
As for the episode, the idea that the Tok'ra could destroy a moon but couldn't penetrate of Goa'ould mothership's shields seems a little off. I do, however, dig the idea of destroying an entire celestial body just to get at one ship. I'm a fan of overkill.
It's not as much as destroying a star and several planets in order to take out a few ships.
The dead goa'uld returns
I didn't really want to see Apophis return. I felt really sorry for the host when his mind broke through, and couldn't help thinking about him. It must be terrible to have to return to the nightmare again.
It was very creative how he came back though.
I agree, it was probably the most interesting return throughout the series... just the whole situation and all.Originally Posted by Selmak
I loved the whole look and feel of these 2 episodes. Very well done.

Yeah, Sokar was a great villian and in all regards a better one then many we have today. It was just nice to have a snake that went with something other then egyptian lore.
To kill him off just to bring Apopquiz back seemed like a terrible wast of a great concept.

I do have to agree (partly). I do think that they did kill off Sokar too quickly. And if they were to kill him early in his career, why couldn't they have made in a way that he could be revived in a Sarcophogus? But I was happy that they brought back Apophis. Not for nothing, but he is just a better villain because he's a more personal villain for most of the members of Sg-1.
Jack: He took Ska'ra and made him a host for his son, Klor'el.
Daniel: He took Sha're and made him host for his queen.
Teal'c: First prime of Apophis, he has the most personal ties with this false god.
Sam doesn't really have any personal ties with Apophis, so she doesn't really count.
Great episode! One of my favorites along with "Jolinar's memories". I was so surprised when Apophis took off that mask ! It was so unexpected! And it was also nice to go into the characters' minds as well. It was all really good! I wish it hadn't been so easy to finish off Sokar. He was too powerfull a Goa'uld to go like that.

Liked both of the episodes. Loved it when Daniel told Apophis Ammonet was dead. It would have been better if Sha're had been used in Daniel's memories and not Jack to try and get the location of the child.
As soon as he said "My true name is..." (or something) I just suddenly said to myself "Apophis!" Whatta ya know, I was right!
I agree with everyone else- Sokar died way to quickly. It's interesting that, after all that, Apophis just keeps on tickin, but I was really digging Sokar. He looked great.
I just knew Teal'c was going to punch that Tok'ra guy out at some point.
Great or creepy? Don't answer, I think I can figure that out. I also think they gave him a great look, especially since he was playng the role of Satan.
Oh, and the quote that I think you're looking for is: (spoiler: highlight to read)"You will call me Nayonak no longer. From this day forth, I reclaim my true name. *lifts helmet* Apophis." I think that was so well-done.
