    Having watched the movie a couple of times, I wouldn't agree that Daniel and Kawalsky are necessarily good friends. Yes, they fought together, which tends to create bonds between people, but Kawalsky treated Daniel like **** in just about every interaction they had until the end. Forex, he was the one who threw the suitcase at his head. And EW takes place within a day or so of CotG, so it's not like the two had time to bond then. So I don't find it surprising that Daniel, having lost his beloved wife just a few days earlier, is more concerned about what the operation would do for her than he was about a guy he probably had ambiguous feelings for and hardly knew.

    As far as I recall, Warner was the chief surgeon at that time.. and Fraiser wasn't around until after this.

    After Children of the Gods I was guessing that Kawalsky would act as a spy and saboteur within the SGC for some time before being found out. Didn't think this episode would be the end of him. Really, though, this felt like an extension of the pilot. It's like "OK, so we set up the basics of the SGC, the Goa'uld, and gate travel. Now we'll establish how sneakily a Goa'uld can hide in its host, and how difficult it is to purge. Also we must further establish Teal'c as a good guy so he can be on SG-1."

    That was Ferretti. Kawalsky did his share of screaming and shoving, though.

    Yeah, I don't think she mad her first appearance until 'Broca Divide' a bit later in the season.

    This episode, wasn't fantastic, but then again it wasn't awful. Pretty average. But when you take into account that it was only the second episode, and things were only just getting started,and characters were only just being introduced, it becomes understandable

    You also have to consider that Children of the Gods must have taken a lot of money out of the budget..........so to save money they did an on world episode

    I think they writers ended the whole Kawalsky / Go'auld subplot way too early ebcause it would have been intresting in latter episodes to have seen what might have happened (Imagine Within The Serpent's Grasp For Instance).

    Otherwise, pretty much run-of-the-mill as far as the series is concerned.

    I think Kawalsky really provided the motivation and the hatred Jack felt for the Goa'uld. While Sha're and Skaara's plights were worth an attempt at rescue, there was still hope for them. The plot really needed to give Jack a strong breaking point to fuel his later aggressive battle against the Goa'uld. Having this episode second allowed the remaining seasons to become more plausible.

    i disagree with what ppl have said about the Kawalsky character. IMO he would have been a great leader who would help sg1 out whenever they got in trouble.

    Smile Re: The Enemy Within (102)

    I thought this was a great ep but a bit bummed that they killed off Kawalsky before we really got to know a bit more about him, especially since the character was in it from the movie. I heard that AT got hurt in the filming of this ep when she was thrown against the elevator wall - she dislocated her shoulder. Makes you wonder what goes on behind the scenes. So there you go....a pretty good ep but not one of my favorites.

    The scene when teal'c went in to talk to kawalsky was so stupid. I wish teal'c would have been able to see that coming. (you think he would have)

    Teal'c senses naquadah not the presence of a Gou'ald. Just because Teal'c could sense that kawalsky still had Naquadah in him didn't mean that kawalsky was still a Gou'ald. Therefore Teal'c wouldn't know if Kawalsky was a Gou'ald.

    Also, most of the body of the Goa'uld had already been removed. While some naquada remained in the host's body, the highest concentration is probably within the symbiote itself.

    Another important point to remember is that Teal'c hadn't developed the ability to sense naquada yet. He obviously couldn't sense that Kalwalsky was a Goa'uld at the beginning of the episode, why would he at the end?

    ROTFLMAO

    Sorry but jaffa are born with that ability as our gou'ald hosts or former gou'ald hosts. Teal'c had the ability the entire episode they just played it out like teal'c hadn't been close enough to sense it. Im sure he would have to be within a 10-15 foot radius of the prospect, perhaps teal'c was never that close.

    Actually, the Jaffa's ability to sense Goa'uld didn't appear until later in the series. Teal'c and Kawalsky did stand near each other several times, at the end of Children of the Gods on the top of the ramp, for example. Even in season 2, In the Line of Duty, Teal'c did not sense Sam's Goa'uld, although they were in the same room during the briefing.
