    A bit of an abrupt ending. But I liked when Teal'c tried to hit Mitchell, lol.

    Interesting episode in its implication (Merlins invented a weapon that can kill the ascended).

    The actual episode has some old stuff (Carter and Mitchell being trapped in a different phase). Dr. Lee accidentally send Daniel to the other phase as well but then Daniel was able to translate the ancient device and save the day (while almost killing Mitchell who went AWOL to save Teal'c).

    Skydiver he also left from earth, and left the thing on earth. He wasn't a physic he just used the earth point of orign because he was on the planet, and so was his tech for the most part.

    Anyways this gets 4/5. It was great, but no emotion after killing his friend. Also Vala is back new week .

    While this is probably more of a team episode, we don't really see the entire team working together since Teal'c was on his own for the most part before Mitchell decided to go help him while being out of phase.

    I thought Carter would've used the ancient device to communicate to Daniel better (yeah, Daniel had a line that said that they shouldn't mess with the keyboard too much but with just two buttons, one can communicate via Morse code).

    Some more good Mitchell and Teal'c moments.

    Another bit of negativity: the Sodon storyline seemed to be thrown away a bit too quickly. However, I guess the show might be going in another direction yet again so maybe there is just no future in the Sodon, so why not burn it here.

    The guy who went crazy wasn't Mitchell's friend but the brother of Mitchell's friend. Mitchell's friend was among the ones who got killed by the renegade Sodon warrior.

    Next week's episode definitely looks quite exciting (and hopefully there will be some resolution before the end of the season).

    Agree Completely.

    Cam needs to calm down. I've never seen someone so happy to be in mortal danger. Wasn't Volnek a friend of his of sorts? It doesn't bother him to have to blow the crap out of him? And why is he always running off on his own as if he didn't have problems of his own to deal with. I know it's convenient for the plot but enough already.

    Deux ex Machina indeed. The convenience factor is extremely high.
    Going with the idea that the whole Vala and Daniel discovering the Ori was an accident, Merlin just happened to have developed this specific tech that they just happen to need, was bright enough to see that they would come across his research, it would just happen to be on Earth where they could run across it.... I can't bother.

    The better question is, if Arthur is ascended then either the ancients knocked him off when they found out about his research or they forgot or he just happened to be done with his research and left it laying around for us to find?
    wow i am confused.

    It's a good thing I'm easily amused.

    A pretty good episode. The ending was a bit abrupt and unbelievable that Mitchell would grab the chip, but it really isn't that important.

    I'm not sure how the Sodan cloak allowed one to see a Arthur's Cloak user, but perhaps that will be explained in the future. I hope this device Merlin invented is either destroyed or has more to it then just flipping on and blowing stuff up.

    Okay. Alan McCullough wrote this, right? I am starting to see he likes writing Mitchell a certain kind of way.

    I thought we'd get an Ori free episode, but at least there wasn't nothing said about them saying anything. I'm fine as long as they don't do the whole message, twisted version of Biblical thing. But, what is this with nasty stuff coming out of people's mouths? I'm used to having to cover my eyes and go, "Ew! Ew!" with CSI and ER when I watched, but not Stargate.

    Daniel looking through texts is a sight I never tire of. Also was cute the way he can't help being in teacher mode. "Myrrdian, who we better as?" Pause, waiting for Landry to answer.

    An Ancient weapon? Can we find it like, next episode and kill the Ori now? Or, at least render them silent?

    Hmm, was Bill Lee always so goofy?

    Will have more to say after reading other responses.

    Okay, you got me. I can't accept change. This message may look like it was typed on a computer and posted on the internet, but it is actually cave drawings delivered by smoke signals.

    ok, cam comes in, sam's working has been all night
    she's playing with one of the toys they found in merlin's cave
    she has a breakthrough, does something and whammo theyu're out of phase

    commercial

    no biggie, they'll just find daniel and he'll see them and they'll fix it, cept daniel can't see them

    meanwhile, teal'c gets word the the sodan are under attack and goes off to check it out

    sam and cam wander around, they're stuck, can't eat or interact....but still dont' fall through the floor

    eventually security tapes show what happened and dr lee is on the case....and he's watched 'honey i shrunk the kids' too many times and thinks they've been miniaturized

    eventually they realize that theyu're out of phase. now sam and cam have a nice display from the device...but it's in ancient and neither of them speak it

    they manage a kind of yes and no communication with daniel and work to translate.

    meanwhile teal'c is in trouble and overdue so mitch just HAS to go rescue him. it's ok, he's out of phase and can't be hurt

    dr lee is his normal efficient self and whammo, daniel is out of phase too. but at least the translations will go faster now

    he and sam find out that the device is arthur's mantle and that arthur was working on a weapon, something so important that he descended to work on it....a way to kill ascended beings (gee, three guesses what this is for????? the season is almost over and they do need a plot device to get rid of those pesky ori)

    daniel also finds out how to get back, despite the fact that lee messes up and drains most of hte machine's power - have to have that happen, can't have the sgc having access to merlin's notes after all

    teal'c is still on the planet, and is cut off. the whole sodan village has been creamed by.....wait for it......a ZOMBIE! yes, one of the sodan fell afoul of the priors and got zombieized and killed most of his people

    cam, of course, is off world and sam and daniel, who have figured out how to reverse it, have no idea if it'll fix cam or not

    it does...just in time to put him in peril

    and we end with a nice teal'c/cam bonding moment and the promise that we have our deus ex machina to fix the baddies

    ---

    all in all, it's not too bad. it did have some fun moments and i laughed. there were several glitches. like sg-12 wearing desert boots with their green camos, earth's PoO on the address to teh location of the super weapon, lee draining the device to keep us from knowing more and other bits of clumsy writing. cam also is like mckay and massively food obsessed

    homages included crystal skull, WoO and rod's food obsession

    mccullough and peter do keep up the obnoxious cam like i said above. it did work a bit better since he's only acting like a moron with sam, but still it's a bit trying (oh, and another cam/jonas similarity, he's read and memorized every single sg1 mission report)

    enjoyable and a decent way to kill an hour...but ultimately it's nothing more than filler and set up for the finale

    question: do we just now find out arthur was an ascended being? if arthur was working on this why do we need merlins notes?

    and ur right they do need a plot device to kill the ori b/c really with the way they have it unless we found ancient tech to kill all ori worshippers or the ancients got involved, we basically cannot win.
