    The best bit about Jack's response to his plight was the sheer understatement of it. The quiet desperation had so much more impact than histrionics or endless blubbing would have done. As you said - you could practically feel Jack's being at the end of his tether.

    Yet another magnificent performance from RDA.

    Yes indeed. Mine too. He may be as evil as they come, but he's definitely got the style to carry it off with aplomb.

    What more can I say, I love this episode and just for the very reason you've summed up so beautifully.

    Yes, I think RDA is often underestimated.

    I can't think of a more appropriate term than to say this was a beautiful episode, in 2 regards -

    - The direction, scenes, dialogue were amazing...Jacks' 'Thats where you're wrong!!' outburst, hell that whole scene, was completely moving as far as I'm concerned...

    - The differences between Jack/Daniel friendship now that Daniel is ascended, and the extreme nature of Jacks' situation, really make it seem like Daniel is torn in 2 over helping a close friend and abiding by the rules of the life that he has chosen. Their friendship was excellently portrayed here.

    Also, those piano notes that play at times throughout the episode...I dare anyone to hear that and not feel sorry for Jack being tortured....and as for Ba'al...what can I say, perfect villian, perfectly acted by Cliff Simon....

    I'll stop ranting there, and perhaps go watch it again!

    One of the best episodes of the entire series! The acting is among the best of the series. RDA's performance is his best since The Fifth Race. Cliff Simon is at his best as Ba'al. It's great to see MS in this episode with one of his all-time best performances. The conversations between O'neill and Jackson are incredibly well written.

    The scenes on Earth don't lack far behind. Corin Nuemec finally brings the character of Jonas into full focus. AT, CJ, and Davis do well in this episode.

    The production values, the writing, the music and everything else works very very well!

    A must see episode!

    I got really emotional when jack was telling Daneil to end it, also I felt Jacks frustration when he told Daniel if things were reversed he would smash the whole place up and kill baal, when daniel said the others would stop them and Jack says "theyd have a hell of a fight on their hands". A really great episode.

    Recently while rewatching the series, I finally noticed how goo dthe acting actually was in this episode. I've always kind of liked the episode, Ba'al can be quite entertaining for a goa'uld, but the acting between Daniel and Jack is superb, and having noticed that, has moved this episode right up there among my faves.
    Those who live with no fear inevitably lead boring lives, for fear is the element within our hearts that breathes excitement into our souls.

    Hot damn this was a good episode. Guest appearance by Daniel, Jack being put through the ringer big time. Jack's outfit looked goofy though. However, I'm glad they left the same clothes on him the entire episode, the bloodstains and the holes added to the effect. Ba'al is one mean sob, I can't decide what would be worse, the acid or the knives. Great character interaction for Jack and Daniel here. That Tok'ra guy can shove it, I hope he gets staff'd later in the season. Bring back Freya dammit, she would have wanted to get Jack back. >_>

    I have just been rewatching Season 6. I haven't seen some of these in a while. I forgot just how much I love Abyss. For all of the reasons many of you have posted! There is just something so wonderful about how Jack and Daniel interact with each other (thanks, I'm sure, to RDA's and MS's acting skills). They seem to be such great friends who will be there for each other, no matter what the situation. When Jack yells at Daniel, and Daniel just takes it cuz he knows his friend really needs him there. The O'Neill/Jackson interaction is much of the reason I was drawn into Stargate! It is the one thing I really miss.

    Default Abyss question

    Jack: "You're wrong about that too..." (Daniel looks at him, narrows his eyes inquisitively.) "I have another choice." (Daniel closes his eyes and shakes his head.)

    Daniel: "What are you talking about?" (Jack looks at him, like" you know." Daniel shakes his head). "No."

    Jack: "Any minute, they're gonna come. Ba'al is gonna kill me again. You can make it the last time."

    Daniel: "Don't ask me to do that..."

    Jack: "You can put an end to it..."

    Daniel: "I won't do it..."


    What's Jack asking Daniel to do? I thought Daniel couldn't interfere, maybe someone could explain this to me

    I think that is it too. I'm just not sure if Daniel could have or not without breaking the "rules" of Ascension.

    Why would he refuse to do it then? He was already willing to break the rules by helping him ascend, why would he not be willing to break the rules to free him?

    Anyway, I always assumed that he was implying to kill him.
