    Peter Wingfield did play Tanith well though.
    True.. It would have been a living hell for him.

    oh yeah.. it was a great storyline. The show did have some great Minor Go'auld enemies. I think Nirrti was more interesting AFTER she was no longer a System Lord, Hathor, Zipnaca, Tanith, Imhotep.

    I really put Tanith and Zipnaca in the same basket.

    So, we basically have an old flame of Teal'c come in, and tell everyone she's made contact with her symbiote and convinced it to break rank and fight against the Goa'uld. She manages to convince Teal'c into believing that she was indeed capable of such a thing, communion with her kal'ma, and that it wants to assist the Tok'ra and give up all its Goa'uld secrets.

    But surprise, surprise... Tanith has deceived Shaunac, tricked her into thinking she made a difference in its life, and kills her to proof its point. The Tok'ra see through his deception and think they can use that to their advantage.

    It was great to see Anise/Freya again.

    Not so great was the team's first arrival on Vorash. The people walking towards the two waiting figures did not match the team's configuration as they ring down: 3 green figures, 2 brown ones -- which should have been 4 green ones and 1 brown one. Reused stock image was out of place.

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

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible

    Even with Anise/Freya's presence, I can't find anything great about this episode. Yes, Tanith is a pretty cool addition to the Goa'uld firmament but the story is a little too meh for my taste.

    3-episode quiz: this way!

    And the jigsaw puzzle for Crossroads.

    Im in complete disagreement FH. I love this episode because of the SG1 characters, Tealc is the most underused characters. Well until RDA starts phoning it in. But that is a discussion for another day. I love seeing the interaction between Tealc and Shaunac. I don't think they love one another anymore but it's clear they care about one another. Plus I always love learning more about Goa'uld society. Yes Tanith double crossing us is obvious but I like the Tokra being devious to useing him. If their is one compliant it's Jack's anger to the Tokra. 05:34, beat that FH

    Just re-watched this episode last week and I must admit it made me smile a bit to see how gullible the SGC was in regards to Shau'nac revelations.

    Couple things that stood out of this episode for me:

    • The ever growing mistrust: You can see how both faction are totally polarized on the approach to fight the Goa'ulds. Tok'ra are much more cloak and dagger, also willingly keeping the SGC in the dark and omit to divulge many important details. Makes you realize Tok'ra are on our side, but remain symbiotes all the same with the deception and intelligence that comes with them.
    • Pissed off ; just rams through a bunch of Tok'ra, always funny. Jaffa revenge incoming.
    • Tanith is one of my favorite villain, this guy is so manipulative, love the actor.
    • Anise, because of reasons.
    • Teal'c possibly had an affair before? With a priestess of the temple! *insert sassy voice here*: Oh my gaawd!


    Morale is: Never trust a snake.

    9:30. I am the slowpoke now.

    I really didn't like this episode that much, but it was okay, I guess.

    It was a good intro to Tanith, plus I really like the actor who plays him.

    One thing that is bothering me--doesn't Teal'c have his family stored away on some safe planet somewhere? He would give them up to be on Chulac with Shaunac?

    I understand Jack's animosity with the Tok'ra, I just don't agree with his mouthing off to them all the time. It is getting annoying.

    He does. Perhaps Shaunac was a fling before he married his wife. Or he cheated on her with the priestess.

    Wasn't sure where they still stood because of the kiss during "Family".

    I think Shaunac was a fling before he got married.

    I don't think he got married again with his ex-wife after she married that other dude.

    I read it somewhere there, but felt really sorry for Hebron. When Anise said "He knew well the risks." it does not sound very truthfully. I doubt that they would say to him "But maybe he is pretending to be nice and will control your body after blending." Actually I was quite surprised that they were not more suspicious of Tanith (SG1 and Tok'ras), even if they believed the ability of Shaunac talk to him and tell him about the evil of Goa'ulds, so Tanith told her that he will not be evil and all of them take the word of the snake for granted?

    I was also thinking if would not be more interesting if Tanith was able to be a spy among Tok'ras for a longer time before his revelation, what do you think?
