I really do hope Oma isn't dead or trapped or descened somewhere.

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

    Probably the weapon at Dakara, as sam stated she didn't know what kind of effect it would have on him. Which leads me to think that the goauld or going to start dying.

    I have to admit that after watching Threads last night I felt slightly dissapointed, everything seemed too convenient. It just felt like too many loose ends got tied up in one episode. Having thought about it though my opinion has changed. To me it seems to have been necessary to set the way for S9 and the changes that are coming. Initially I wasn't holding out much hope for S9, but I feel quite excited about it all now.

    How about using the official Threads thread and the Yes/No to S9 instead of starting yet another thread.

    Great, great episode. I really can't see how they could cut this down to 60 minutes from 90, seeing how even the extra long episode seemed rushed

    Poor Pete He did everything for Sam... what the hell was wrong with her? I prefered dream Jacob's advice in Grace than what Jacob told her here. And sooo sad to see Jacob die... it still hasn't hit me, but he's gone Also, what episode were some people here watching? "Jack and Sam finally together" where? Last time I checked Jack's still Sam's CO.

    Jim being Anubis was brilliant, I didn't see that coming at all. I would have liked to see what was happening to Anubis on Dakara when Oma attacked him, but I guess we can't all get what we want.

    Another thing, Ascensions is no longer a way out. So many people whine about anyone being able to ascend if they die... well, not any more Oma shall spend the rest of time battling Anubis and thus won't be ascending anyone anymore.

    When they realised that Anubis was about to get the Ancient weapon I would have loved if they had been able to dial the Alpha site and then they decided they had to

    Very happy with Threads, despite (OK, because of) it being all middle-aged Dawson's Creek. The fact that we can have a sci-fi show that takes time out of saving the galaxy and Blowing Stuff Up to just do some characterisation totally works for me.
    BUT... 90 mins for those 3 storylines...hmmmm...
    General comment (not spoilerish)


    Daniel/Oma could have been cut down a lot and still retained (or probably improved upon) the impact.Big speech just didn't do it for me. However, hopefully the fact they don't give a stuff might mean they take a huge backstep in S9. Not so sure about the memory intact comedic return from a plot point, but entertaining enough. Almost felt like the Old Days.

    The whole Anubis/Ancients weapon/Jaffa plotline dragged like hell for me: I would have liked to see more on the political struggles between the Jaffa elements -- dramatic friction doesn't have to come from actually seeing Impending End Of All Things.
    As a talk episode, it could have done a lot more to flesh out the Free Jaffa backstory, mirroring the Carter/Jacob line with Bra'tac/Teal'c and the one-sided paternal expectations -- instead, we get trained warriors acting like 17 year old Horror Movie High School kids investigating the strange noise in the basement -- "I know, let's split our forces and go lookit Anubis". yech.

    And finally, the Jack/Sam ship, which I admit to being rather partial to.
    the constant prodding from other characters was a rushed writing tool (Jacob's a much tearful exception) but, hey, LTS. The fact that after so much faffing around it was handled sensitively without any big declamatory lines and still left hanging in the wind was a good choice.

    Having Teal'c & Daniel turn up at the end had me in warm fuzzies. More like this please before RDA walks off into the sunset.
    How long since SG1 (in whatever form) has felt like an honest to goodness team of friends? Including any elements of friendship (or lack of due to O'Neill's promotion) has been sorely missed at times: there has been too much reliance on fragmented storylines and characters seemingly there to purely move the plot archs along (Carter leading SG1 as a unit?).
    Because of this, the earth-bound storyline was by far the more involving.

    At 90 mins, it was too long -- but because the earth talk scenes just blew the rest away.

    Who really gives a monkeys about the Ancients or nefarious death machines?

    I missed that! I went back and checked the scene and you're right! Those sneaky writers.

    I also managed to transcribe most of that article Daniel was reading in the paper:

    Anubis plans to retake Dakara

    EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION ON HIS QUEST TO DESTROY ALL LIFE IN THE MILKY WAY GALAXY

    He's back again and he's badder than ever

    Sources today indicate that the monstrous evil that is Anubis is about to commit his most horrific act yet. His ultimate plan is to destroy all life (no exceptions) in the Galaxy and start over, infesting it with a multitude of Kull Warriors and other subservient dronelike beings whose only purpose is to serve and amuse him. When questioned, Anubis claimed, "I'm not such a bad guy, I just know what I like and I'm willing to kill everyone and everything to get it." His plans will come as a huge surprise to the rebel jaffa and Tauri alike. "They keep thinking that they've bested me but it can't be done. Being partially ascended really has its benefits."

    This corporeal creep had some words to say regarding his constant foes from the SGC. "That O'Neill is such a pain in the --- I'm particularly looking forward to pulling his arms off, over and over and over." What of his plans for the rest of the SG-1 team? "I thought I might have the shulva Teal'c skinned and made into a wallhanging for my Peltac. Carter? Oh, I've got something special in mind for her. Give me time to muster my forces and set my plans for retaking Dakara in motion. I just love the irony of dealing with such situations because it gives..."
    To Infinity And Beyond!

    Did anyone else notice they kept saying Jacob should have died 4 years ago? Can they not count it was 6!?

    I just thought that it was cool that when Oma finally decided to do something, all the other ascended finally looked up!

    I thought I'd heard Jacob say four in the infirmary, but just concluded I'd heard him wrong. Did Sam say four too, in the observation room? I haven't had a chance to watch for a second time yet - still trying to find a way to tactfully shoo my husband out of the house for a couple of hours.

    Albion (who figures saying, "Hey, go get me some chocolate and wine - I'm celebrating..." just won't cut it somehow...)
    Listen, we had General Ryan come on and do a little cameo for us, and he's a real live four star, one of the big guys. And I had to ask him point blank, because there's a certain irreverence that I bring to the character, and denseness, but while we were doing this scene, I just looked at him and said, "Do you have guys like me in...?" and he stopped me and said, "Yes, and worse, and you're doing a fine job, son."

    What did you guys think of Jacobs death scence? I felt AT could have put more into it. She's very good at emotions. I.e S3 THE DEVIL YOU KNOW.

    great ep

    liked the daniel/oma/jim/anubis stuff and the jaffa stuff
    didn't like jacob's pointless death and the ship stuff

    they kinda left the JS ship ambiguous, they did't say at all that they are together, so the shippers get what they want and the non-shippers also get what they want.

    I rather liked that it was somewhat understated. I didn't actually think that it was emotionless. I really liked the way she reacted to the sudden realisation that Jacob was going to die too and not just Selmac. That stammer, almost-can't-get-the-word-out, 'W...we...?" That was very effective, I thought, and closed up my throat too, listening to it. <sob>

    I have to say that my opinion is probably tempered by the fact that I've never been impressed with AT's attempts to act crying. IMO she just can't do it. It's rarely seemed genuine to me. I think she's a terrific actress, don't get me wrong, adore her acting and Carter as a character. But that's one thing that I always cringe over when I see it.

    And, too, I've never been a convert to the theory that to act emotion you have to collapse in floods of tears. When a show does it a little more cleverly than that - as they did here imo - for me it works far better and means a lot more.
