    I got the impression that Oma and "Jim" is locked in an eternal struggle. Where no one can win. So both of them are effectively trapped.

    Wel i must say that this episode is definately one of my favourites it was a very good one, albeit flawed.

    SPOILERS

    How Oma took out Anubis felt a little anit-climactic IMO and the killing off of Jacob/Selmac was purely for ship, heck it was practically a deus ex machina just to finally bring Sam and Jack together. But my favourite moment was the ending, simply for the sweetness of it and, of course, the ship. This is the very first time ever in SG1 that I have enjoyed watching ship-simply because after this episode I think we can expect it never to happen again! This is obviously the end to the whole darn thing so never again will we have to sit through another tentative look, another akward silence, another "Grace" Hallelujah!!

    Sounds possible. The Ancients are really pissing me off. I do understand their highest law (not interfering in coporial matters) because once you open that door, in a literal sense, all hell would break loose. At the same time and this is why I am pissed, is why don't they realize Anubis is using knowledge of Ancient technology that he got while he got ascended and using that in coporial matters. They should know that no one has the technology to stop him. They should've wiped Anubis out a long time ago and let Oma to continue what she was doing (helping others find enlightenment (ascend)) and everyone else go on their merry way. I really do hope Oma isn't dead or trapped or descened somewhere.

    SPOILERS down below SPOILERS











    They killed Jacob/Selmak, DAMMIT! He was my favorite character. I just wonder what killed him.

    Ship refers to romantic relationSHIPs or feelings characters have in the show, or in fandom. In this case its referring to the cursed Sam/Jack pairing, the most popular 'ship' (though I don't agree)

    I think the other ancients are happy with the result. First they got ride of Oma, whose constant attempt to help other ascend must get on their nerves. Then they got ride off Annibus, which I don't think many of them liked but had to tolerate due to the law/rule whatever.

    One thing that never made sense to me, is why, if Annibus is going to wipe out all life from the galaxy, even bothered giving the planet to Rebel Jaffs in the first place. If he’s just going to wipe everything out, dose it really matter if all rebel Jaff are gathered at the same place? I mean sure, he got the dial all gate trick from baal, but that’s an awful big risk he took there.

    Lastly, I was kinda hoping to see baal in a final desperate attempt to stop annibus, just to save himself (and rest of the galaxy as a bonus), buying enough time for Ome to finally put an end ot Annibus once and for all.

    Ok I'm going to try and do a recap of what happened, I may miss stuff out. I don't think I should need a spoiler space.




    The episode starts with a recap of the s/j relationship it seemed to me- Zatarc testing, when she's trapped behind the force field etc. Clips from d&c,grace, chimera, affinity - Daniel ascending again.

    Anibus - who's new body is starting to look scabby again, tells Ba'al that he knows what he did and is going to use his modifications to the stargate to destroy the galaxy.

    Sam comes in the briefing room to talk to Jack but sees him with a woman in his office and looks uncomfortable. He waves her in as he gets rid of the woman. Carter is curious to who she is - Kerry Johnson CIA, heading up the investigation into the missing goa'uld. Carter talks to Jack about Daniel but Jack is refusing to have a memorial service because he's not going to be tricked into believing that Daniel is dead. He thinks that Daniel will come in the door right at that moment, of course they both watch the door and nothing happens.

    Meanwhile Daniel enters a diner, sitting down in an empty seat. His waitress is Oma.
    The Jaffa lead by Isaac Hayes, honor Teal'c and Bratac for what they've done. Bractac tells them that Jaffa will never bow before anyone again.

    Carter is waiting by the lift, Pete steps out. He's really hyper about his clearance pass and is he going to go through the gate? Carter says no, opens a door and there is Jacob sitting down. Carter didn't tell Pete because she didn't want him to be nervous. Jacob says that it was Carter who was nervous. There's a long silence while Jacbo looks at Pete. Pete breaks the silence by asking Jacob if having the snake in his head doesn't freak him out. It was all very uncomfortable.

    In the diner Daniel asks her if he's dead. She says it's up to him. Daniel isn't sure if it's real, Oma answers in a riddle. Daniel orders waffles.

    Bratac tells Teal'c that the balance of power is shifting but Teal'c isn't convinced that freedom for all Jaffa is in their hands. The speak on mistrust and loyalty among Jaffa.

    A guy comes into the Diner and says he knows Daniel. Hands him a paper - it's says that Daniel Jackson is undecided.

    In the sgc Carter eating with her father. She asks him why they haven't spoken about Pete. Selmek likes Pete and he's happy if she's happy.

    Jack is woken by a phone call from Carter, Teal'c is back and he needs to come him. He's in bed with Kerry Johnson and kisses her before he leaves to get dressed.

    Back in the diner Oma tells Daniel that he's at stop on the way to ascension. Daniel reads in a paper - The Ascended Times I think - of Anubis' plans. Seems like the ascended know exactly what is going on in the galaxy as it happens, or before. Hmmm. Oma tells Daniel that he can either choose ascension or he'll be dead if he trys to leave and help his friends. She won't help him ascend again. If he chooses to take human form he will not have any memory of Anubis' plan anyway. He then tries to strike up conversations with the others in the diner but none of them will take to him. He's trying to get some syrup. Oma comes out with the syrup and tells him that they won't talk to him because he's not one of them.

    Teal'c, Bratac, Jacob, Jack and Carter are in the briefing room. Jack tells them they should have blown up the ancient weapon when they had the chance. Apparently the Jaffa want to keep it. Neither Jack nor Jacob think this is good idea. Carter's phone goes off and she shuts it off, embarrased. I didn't know phones could work under a mountain - i've got to get me one of them. Mine won't work above ground! Anyway Jack tells Jacob the tokra should take the weapon back because the Jaffa already hate them.

    They are interrupted again when Carter is called away with an urgent phone call, Jack watches her while still continuing with the conversation. Jacob mentions that Carter was supposed to be picking flowers for the wedding. Carter is not pleased that he told everyone this. Jack tells Carter to go, there' s nothing she can do and it is her day off.

    Oma tells Daniel that she didn't wipe his memories of ascension. She has crossed the line a few times and paid for it.

    Carter and Pete are in a car, Pete is his usually chatty self wanting to know jokingly if they are about to get destroyed by aliens. Then he asks seriously. Carter tells him no both times. They were talking about weddings but Carter seemed distant somehow.

    Ok I'll update later if no-one else does. I've got to get to work.

    Disagree.

    She was already at Jack's house to confess all regarding her feelings for him 'before' she knew Jacob was dying.
    (I tried to put this into spoiler mode but it did not work so sorry to anyone who feels 'spoiled')

    Agree with everything else though

    An excellent episode, indeed.


    At first I didn't think the whole 60's diner stuff would actually work out -- but it did. It was great. The Ascended Times just made me laugh. Them knowing everything Anubis was doing - and then finding out that Jim was Anubis. That come to a surprise, and I didn't expect that at all. Nice twist!

    So now Oma has taken on Anubis and destroyed him -- I wonder what will become of Oma. I'm sure she will be back, with a new punishment for breaking the rules - or perhaps Oma will also have to descend, but I don't think anyone will be ascending for some time.

    The whole situation between Dakara [yes, that's the correct spelling], the SGC, the Rebel Jeffa and the weapon was great. Good knowing Teal'c and Bra'tac were on Earth, together, trying to come to some kind of agreement. Now Anubis has gone, he can't get the weapon.

    That does leave me to wonder -- Is Ba'al still alive after Anubis was killed - or was he too perhaps captured? Interesting.


    Of course, leaving the best 'til last. Sam and Jack are FINALLY together! I though the last scene was great, Sam and Jack finally fishing in the pond with no fish. It was brilliant. Then Daniel and Teal'c appear at the side of the house. I'm just finally happy Sam and Jack are together.

    Complete 10/10, totally.

    Ok, I am a huge Stargate fan, one that until I saw this episode would have said, I hope the series goes on for even longer. But then I saw Threads, one of the greatest episodes I've seen yet. True to the name, it ties up so much that I think it would have made a great end to the series. I honestly don't know what the new threat they're going to introduce is going to be, but I don't really care anymore. Threads and Reckoning take care of Anubis and the Replicator threat in our galaxy, and to a degree, Baal with the Jaffa uprising. The Jaffa are now essentially free, the galaxy is for the most part free of evil, and we got a good look at ascention and the Ancients. Moebius is going to have to be pretty damn good to top these last few episodes. And as for Season 9? I don't know that there's much more that I want from the series that needs to be explained in a whole new season.

    Since I don't care for the Daniel/Oma stuff nor the Jack/Sam stuff, can anyone tell me what happened with Baal? I gather he wasn't in it much (damn!) but would like to know some details.

    Baal should get his own show.

    I loved anubis being that guy in the cafe because I didnt expect it, but also wouldnt that mean anubis should know everything the ancients know if he is still able to access theirt knowledge? although Oma did say there are many different levels inbetween ascended and human so maybe he cant fully access it but can get into that cafe

    Jack: Is that why you guys took hosts?


    Jack: Oooo... did anyone else feel that?
    Sam: The tingling sensation is a result of the EM field passing over your skin, but it's not causing any physical damage, so there's no need for concern sir.
    Jack: No I *like* it.

    This is without a doubt my new favourite episode. I loved this

    The first sign of a good episode for me personally is when I can sit through the whole thing and not be bored at all. I loved every single minute of Threads. To be honest, I didn't think i'd enjoy Daniel's ascension bits as I am typically not a Daniel fan, but I was engrossed in this aspect of the story as well (although to me, Oma seemed a bit off). So the Jaffa finally have their freedom. Good for them, it was a long time coming. "Teal'c of the Tauri" - very cute I was incredibly sad to see Jacob/Selmak go. He was my favourite reccuring character and I always enjoyed his interactions with Sam, and indeed Jack.

    And speaking of Sam and Jack...wow. The first episode I ever really watched was Grace and I was a Shipper instantly, so to bring SJ together and makes references from Grace was, for me, perfect. And there was even fishing The scene where Jacob died was bittersweet, and I will admit that a few tears did escape me (I am now certain there is a correlation between my crying and seeing Amanda cry), but i'm just a big wuss for stuff like that anyway


    Once again, I loved this episode. I will watch it many, many times.

    I agree, but I honestly think that a new threat in Season 9 will herald "an offshoot" if you like, in direction for the show.
    I think we'll even see less of Jack now in S9 and wouldn't be surprised if he retires to set up home with Sam!
    BB is joining the show and IMO, that will change the show for good. It's hard to think what type of new threat can be introduced though, because it will have to be something sprung on them from nowhere.

    I think that because of actions in Moebius, they somehow "create" themselves an enemy in the current timeline by altering the past, I can't see a new enemy coming from any other way.

    Uncertain Whats the story with Threads? (Spoilers)

    OK, so I have to admit, I loved Threads, it was a very good show, especially now Sam got rid of Pete and Carrie did the right thing in leaving Jack, but for me, it didn't clear things up properly.

    Did Sam and Jack get together in the end? When they were sat fishing, I thought it was jus them 2 but then Daniel and Teal'c showed up.

    Oma said that neither her or Daniel could kill Anubis, so why the hell did she stand up and proclaim "But I can fight you"??? What the hell does this do if she can't kill him?
    Does this mean she has sacrificed herself to somehow kill him, contradicting what she said earlier, or have the other ancients stepped in and killed them both.

    And who put Daniel back into human form? Does he remember all the stuff from the diner, cos he shouted to the other "No, thats not what happened", indicating he does. I'm also assuming he has no further ancients knowledge, other than what he learned from replicarter, because he didn't actually ascend this time.

    So to sum up, can anybody tell me these answers

    1. Did Sam & Jack ACTUALLY get together
    2. What happened to Oma and how has she "apparently" killed Anubis

    I absolutely loved this episode! Don't want to say too much - even with the Spolier in the title, because this is one episode I would encourage everyone not to spoil on themselves! Everything the writers and directors did was just right in my opinion - nothing too over the top or out of place and just goes to prove once again that the Stargate production team do it best.

    Whatever happens with Jack going forward, they have already proved with the MS situation that they can make it work if a major character moved on and I have every confidence in another brilliant season ahead!
