    Yes this ep was good, I also liked the blonde Jaffa, and they explained what happened in the earlier episodes.

    Perhaps they didn't have it happening sooner as it took time for his body to weaken up..?

    Thats not the point. How long it takes weaken in this episode isn't the point. Teal'c feeling weak should have been done sooner of waiting half a year on a drug

    Teal'c is physically fine. It just takes him longer to recover from a major wound than with Junior, and that shook him mentally. Actually, previous to right now, I felt it was a cheat to not mention this earlier. (It would've been nice to have a subtle earlier reference, like with a later important planet in season 8. ) But now I think that absent a major wound, Teal'c would've been able to hide any mental feelings of weakness from SG-1 and Fraiser.

    I really like that this addresses some elements from Daniel's ascension early on. I would've preferred it to be episode 3 rather than 4, so we don't have an episode that's like Daniel never left, and minimizes the time Bra'tac and Rya'c are in a labor camp -- but that's a minor quibble.

    But Teal'c would still have felt the exhaustation even if it wasn't wounded. Given how Tealc's strength is important to him he should have said something earlier

    Is he actually weaker on Tretonin than with Junior? I was under the impression it was just major damage. I did find a line that supports something you said though. Daniel says, "Teal'c, something's bothering you. Something's been bothering you since before this injury. We're pretty sure we know what it is." It would've been nice to have seen this beforehand, which is what you're talking about.

    Stargate is sometimes good with giving us something small that pays off big later, but they did shoehorn it in here. I think they didn't get the idea until season 7, and with Daniel coming back, episode 4 was the earliest they could do it.

    Yes is weaker without the symbiote in the physical sense. But as that episode tries to show. Strength is not just the physical aspect

    Great episode, loved the fight scene at the end. Reminded me of the Teen Titans episode where Cyborg had to train to fight Atlas after feeling weak because of his robotic body.

    The One Where Teal'c Loses His Mojo

    Another good insight into jaffa life and Teal'c aknowledging the things he has lost since losing Junior.

    And more of Daniel trying to remember that which he forgot, or Oma took from him.

    So Bra'tac and Rya'c found themselves in a bit of a bind, and need rescueing. SG1's the best way to go, they know how to impress the enemy and give a good show freeing some jaffa at the same time. Let's blow something up!

    "Time for plan B."
    "We have a plan B?"

    Carter, you know you should always have a plan B ready, and when that fails too... there are 24 letters left in the alphabet to use. That's 24 plans not tried.

    Also as a sidenote: it's a damn miracle Teal'c's quarters haven't caught fire yet with all the candles he's always using for his meditation sessions.

    I can understand why it hasn't caught fire; it's harder to understand why the candles haven't triggered the fire suppression system.

    Maybe it did, every single time, and they just removed it.

    I wonder if he has had the sprinkler systems disabled?

    Do you really think they'd allow that in an underground facility, which would be difficult to evacuate during a fire (visibility and ventilation)? Especially an underground Military facility? Personally, I doubt it.

    I'll just go with smokeless candles.

    Plus we never saw any real ventilation in his room so where did all his smoke go?

    Maybe they were fake candles. You know, the ones they often allow in care homes for the elderly.

    LED candles? Maybe so. Those do look amazingly like real ones, with no fire danger.

    Average episode, but I liked very much the final scene with Daniel and Teal'c. Could not help thinking, that this was not just about Daniel coming back, but also about MS coming back, taking into account that he once said, that before leaving the show, he was not aware that his character had such an impact on the whole show and the fans. So all the words being spoken by Daniel in that scene could very well also have been those of MS at that time. Don't think, that the analogy is just in my head, but was actually intended.
