    I thought this was a great episode. Easily the best episode this season. As some have said AT did a great job of separating Sam with Replicarter.

    Was to me shippy but it wasn't obvious if you didn't want to see it. Jack was way better as a General in this ep and hope to see this for the rest of the season. Teal'c was great as well. He wasn't just wallpaper.

    I doubt that was referring to Jack or her own intelligence. I think the more likely explaination is that it refers to her abilities to use Goa'uld technology from her experiance with Jolinar. She is always loathed to use the ribbon device or the healing device.

    All I have to say is wow. This episode is fantastic. I couldn't have asked for better.


    The beginning scene with S/J was good where Jack said "All the better" to there being two Sams. Good stuff. Execellent camera angles, good Teal'c action -- but I can't help feeling sorry for the gullable Fifth. Sad to see him go as I thought he was good.

    yup this was a fantastic episode that deffinately didn't disapoint

    thier was so much deception

    i never expected RC would turn around and kill fifth because she was hell bent on galactic domination!!!!!!

    phew what a twist!!!!!

    i did do a little nit-picking though

    teal'c's fave word sergeant that kinda annoyed me a bit (even though he only said it twice)

    and the fact that when ever they refered to killing RC they didn't actually say it they said 'the mission' or 'the plan' or what ever and i'd just prefer straight talking

    although i'd did make you wonder whether they where on to her so i'm kinda undecided about that

    but like i said nit-picking these bits are practically insignificant to the wonder that is Gemini

    it even seemed to go faster than the previous episodes of this season, there seemed to be a lot more going on it

    where did danny boy go to though?

    I loved this ep!

    I have to dissagree with something AT said though. She said that Replicarter doesn't have her heart. I'd say half the reason replicarter is gonna be so evil is BECAUSE she has Carter's heart...without a conscience.

    Can't wait for Reckoning!!!!!!!

    I WANT FIFTH BACK!!!!!!!

    THE 'CUTEST BAD GUY' CAN'T BE DEAD!!!!!!!!! HE'S TOO CUTE TO DIE AFTER ONLY THREE (four if NO counts as 2) EPS!!!!

    That's my only gripe.


    Part 2 coming very soon!! (this is a fic btw, not the Fandemonium novel)

    Ditto! Couldn't have put it better myself. What a fantastic episode, AT was Excellent as replicarter, I didn't see it coming, the ending that is, it completely floored me. I hope we see more of replicarter, what a GREAT story arc for the rest of season eight. I wonder if the reckoning willbe the last time we see Replicarter or will this story line continue to season nine? But thats of course assuming AT will be back from season 9

    What a GREAT early Christmas presents from TPTB, will SKy one be airing the next new episode of SG1 next Tuesday or will it be after the Holidays?

    AT was fantastic. She did a really great job of separating the two characters.

    Where was Daniel? I know he mentioned something about the Prometheus, but isn't that a different ep - oh right, the filming schedule thing....

    Good little implied shippy stuff particularly at the start - two Carter's Jack: "If only!"
    ROFL. Cute look between them too.

    Here's my explaination for why Sam was so gullible - when RC put her hand in her head, she did something to Sam's mind that made her more easily persuaded by what she (RC) was saying.
    Ok, that's very vague and doesn't quite fit...but I just came up with it on the spot, and I'm not always very good at explaining plot holes away...
    Anyway, it doesn't explain why everyone else there was quite willing to let RC play with their fancy weapon. --She's a Replicator people!!!! Please don't tell me the thought didn't occur that she might - just might - be using it to figure out how to defend herself against it.

    That aside, very very good episode.

    Teal'c had a good role in a non-Teal'c episode. Impressive. He was very protective of Sam, that was nice.

    One scene is too many for me. Especially, if (if I read it right) Sam was so incredibly gullible to an enemy because said enemy used her supposed feelings for Jack. Gag.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this episode, it's been a while since I've got excited about a new episode, most of the time I look forward to them and am satisfied at the end, but with this one it was "please sir, can I have some more".

    AT's subtle facial differences were terrific, I found it interesting that even if they had been standing side by side in the same clothes, I think we would have been able to differentiate between the two.

    Loved Jack's comment at the beginning, and am pleased that Teal'c had more of an outing this episode.

    I would imagine that AT had a blast doing the fight sequences, especially throwing CJ across the floor!

    Didn't see the twist at the end, the replicator fooling her creator gave the episode a nice twist. Of course there is always the possibility that she can create her own Fifth, made without the flaws!

    I laughed out loud when the arm came off in Teal'c's hand - the look of surprise on both their faces was brilliant.

    Just for a change it was also interesting to see that there will be consequences following the result of what has been done (or not done), and they realise that they are going to be in trouble from said actions. More often than not a storyline isn't followed through and we don't see the results of what SG-1 has done.

    To possibly have the new replicator as the big baddie from hereon in would be terrific, and I wonder if we will see them go up against the supersoldiers or Ba'al.

    Bring on the other episodes I say.

    highlight to read :

    When rep. Carter and Carter share their minds, we see that she does hesitate in killing O'Neill in the simulation Fifth puts her through, she also looks all teary eyed after. I wonder if this is the start of another shipper pair.

    Did anyone else like the F-302 badge that Teal'c had on his jumpsuit?

    At first I thought it was kinda cheesy, but then I figured that they had been around so long, and had stopped being this 'new' thing, that they should fit in with the rest of the AirForce.

    Just never thought I'd hear Teal'c say "Copy Flight".
