I did enjoy this episode, despite some of the issues voiced by others. Yes, I have to say, Jonas' hair had me raise an eyebrow in the best Teal'c fashion I am able to exert. ; ) although, I think that Jonas and his girlfriend are cute. matchymatchy. ; ) I am in the camp that likes Jonas. I wish they had done a better job of keeping him in the "loop" as a secondary character, mentioned and revisited once in awhile, so I was glad to see him. This is the saddest thing, IMHO, about most TV shows. Things just get dropped like lead balloons and never brought up again. Alas. Anyway, I thought it was a neat episode..with hints of those good old moral and ethical issues. I like the mess that Kelowna is always in and I like the trouble they cause for Earth. : )
Watching it again, i was more struck by Jack's reaction in the briefing room in the near beginning when he reacts so strongly about the delegates arguing and stomps out. The first time i watched this, it didn't really hit me, but this time it did. It really seemed to me that he was taking it pretty hard about having to listen to these idiots squabble after what they had gone through the first time with Daniel dying to save their planet. I really think that is a big part of why he reacted as he did and initially stalked out leaving Daniel at the elevator. He needed to deal with it all. And it struck me even more that Teal'c did too! That whole scene at the elevator struck me as odd initially and kinda mean that they would just desert Daniel, but then thinking about it more, I really think that Jack and Teal'c were pretty steamed about current situations and this new mess and needed to regroup. (probably with some jell-o!) Cuz later, Jack came and just "let'em have it" and was a lot more sympathetic to Daniel.
One more thing...just loved it on the "drill" thing when Keyanna said "Shol'va" about Teal'c and Sam looks at him and he just raises his eyebrow and looks away. I'd swear that Teal'c is SICK and TIRED of hearing that!! ; ) I just thought it was hilarious. Where in earlier seasons, he'd probably just have tilted his head, now he's looking away in a display of pure Tau'ri irritation! Priceless.
