    I was hoping to see Ba'al again since I saw him in Season 5 and what do I get? A great episode involving Ba'al, Jack AND ascended Daniel.

    This is one of my favourites of Season 6. It doesn't feature a lot of action but the storyline and the dialogue between characters more than makes up for this.

    I didn't think we'd see anything of Jack whilst he had a Tok'ra but it would've been nice if there was more. Other than that this was superb. Ba'al's torture of Jack, Daniel's attempts at convincing Jack to ascend, the visions of the slave he was trying to rescue......it all makes for an excellent piece of work.

    I agree that the storyline and dialogue was great. Ba'al had no reserve for the methods of torture he used. I liked the aspect of rewarding Jack when he cooperated.

    On the first of the s6 DVDs there's a 'director's series' piece half an hour long about Martin Wood directing Abyss. It's one of the most interesting of all the DVD extras. The directing was particularly good here, and I found it fascinating to see how they did it all.

    The only downside for me, that woman. I didn't like what she kept saying

    "Is it you" (disappears)

    I thought it was interesting how Jack could see her, and Daniel couldn't, and Daniel at the time was 'all powerful' and such, but maybe it was just in Jack's head or something.. Or maybe it was just simple, she left before Daniel could see her, haha..

    That was never clearly established. All we saw was Kanan slithering away on the ground after Jack was hit by one of Ba'al's Jaffa staff weapons at the beginning of the episode.

    The symbiote died, leaving the memories within Jack. jack was healed using the sarcophogus, and leaving no stomache X thing. Thats why Jack had all those memories.

    I think you're mixing your apples and your oranges, uh, you're host and jaffa here.

    The symbiote, Kanan, left Jack. We don't know for sure if Kanan died or not. That was never established in the episode (or since).

    Jack wouldn't have had a stomach pouche for the symbiote, as Jack was a host for Kanan -- not a Jaffa.
