I sure as heck hope she didn't. I've always found Corso uniquely unsettling, and I'm not the sort to get that way too often. I rewatched this episode about a week ago and was once again reminded, I've been thinking he was miscast for over half my life. I get that he's supposed to be this wild, rugged guy who attempts to charm Sam in all those cliche ways, but he comes across to me as worse than he is.
If you've seen a Jeff O'Connor or a JeffZero or a Jeff Zero or a JeffZeroConnor elsewhere on the net, there's a considerable chance it's me.
What about Carter's "We're just plugging your ship into my battery...that didn't sound good, did it?" comment? What would be the point of having that line in there if nothing became of it?
And not long before Carter discovers the truth about Corso and his pals, they have this exchange:
You know, Sam, I've never met anyone like you before.
[She shakes her head.]
Right. You should remain professional. Major.
It's possible that Carter was just getting sick of him and his flirting (but then why did she look disappointed after he left in a huff?), but it's also possible that they did something that she's now regretting, and wants to get back to being on a professional basis with him.

Carter is a pro who doesn't jump in the sack with every man she meets...
That only happens in fanfic, and basically would mean an out of character Carter, or an AU Carter (a very, very, very AU Carter).
Claire, you see sex everywhere.
What you interpret as post-coital awkwardness, I see as Carter, knowing she's alone and without backup, discouraging someone she is not attracted to but feels obligated to help.
If you're going to allow yourself to be offended by a cat, you might as well just pack it in -- Steven Brust
Do you really want her to have had some fleeting sexual experience with someone along the way?
I interpreted her look as her thinking that maybe somehow she could have handled turning him down better. After they got along well and she was learning about their tech, now it was going to be awkward.
I think this is a good episode. A bit of a mystery with these humans that were too quick to fire upon the aliens. I really like the alien, and couldn't stand the humans. So glad that Jonas tricked them-- clever Jonas!
Corso was coming on strong to Sam, and at least he got the hint that she wasn't interested. It creeped me out a bit, actually.
Not at all a bad episode. I thought it quite enjoyable and it has Jonas Quinn outsmarting the bad guys with a nice little trap.
It's also nice to see a different historical group of people put in the spotlight, the Celts. Add in a little history with the Ceberus of Dublin and you've got a nice little plot to work with.
Of course, once you've seen the episode, you know who the bad guys are and who the good ones, but at the same time it gives you that little extra perspective to see how far the bad guys go to defend their "good guy" status, which actually makes it even more interesting in the end.
How would you rate SG-1's "Forsaken?"

Probably one of my favorites of S6 just because of how sneaky Jonas was. I like how this episode how Jonas compares to Daniel in intelligence. Makes all the more sad we lose Jonas soon. I get bored with Carter and Corse on the ship but loved Jack tracking down Warrick. This episode to me highlights that while Jack isnt smart like Sam or Daniel, he is quite genius in military intelligence. I have it a good. I got 11/14 since one of FH's quiz questions is wrong. Also 8:26. I fear FH will beat me so I'm going to think of a quick come back
