    Haven't seen S08 finale in a while. Love all the differences in the ''messed-up'' timeline:

    • I can't take Apophis seriously with this beard, makes me laugh every time.
    • Same goes for Major Davis, his mustache is glorious.
    • Jack' sarcasm in response to Sam & Daniel trying to convince him to join the team is just too funny.
    • Daniel dies again, never gets old.
    • Lemon chicken is Rodney's favorite meal.


    I think Moebius time travel episodes are quite easy to follow, but maybe I'm just spoiled after seeing countless complicated time-travel movies. Overall one of my fav seasons finale.

    A few plot holes:

    a) on 3rd timeline, they expect me to believe that a self glowing light like a zpm would traverse 3000 years (especially the last century with all the pillage) without anyone trying to get it, should it be just for reading at night? And that a camera obviously recognizable in the 50s too? I mean, we are assuming that was all in Katrine's posession, given the 1st episode start. She was really not curious.

    b) the 1st timeship survived 3000 years of the 2nd timeline, ok. So when the dorky sg1 goes back, there is 2 timeship there in the 3rd timeline- one presumably under goul'd surveilance, the other ultimately still usable. Now, they want us to believe the dorky sg1 and old 1st Daniel will not go back to the future (at least another planet or in some non-clashing time to avoid contanimation) to live a secure comfortable life?

    c) and since there are 2 timeships which survived 3000 years on the 3rd timeline, why didn't the tape indicated where these are along with the zpm?

    I didn't like these 2 episodes, really.

    The ZPM doesn't glow unless it's plugged in, and neither it nor the camera were buried at a site Catherine and her father were at. Daniel placed it in a tomb at Giza that, in the original timeline (and apparently also in the subsequent ones), was not uncovered until 2005...

    JACKSON: Well, I know a way we can get the Z.P.M. back to our time even if we don't. About a month before we left, there was an archaeological dig that uncovered a first dynasty tomb near Giza. All we have to do is bury the Z.P.M. in that tomb, let them find it, and maybe our future selves won't have to take on this mission!

    Catherine's estate put them on the track to find the ZPM because it contained a drawing of a ZPM that was copied from a destroyed Ancient Egyptian wall painting, but in no timeline did her boxes ever contain the ZPM or camera.

    b) the 1st timeship survived 3000 years of the 2nd timeline, ok. So when the dorky sg1 goes back, there is 2 timeship there in the 3rd timeline- one presumably under goul'd surveilance, the other ultimately still usable.

    At the end of the last scene in Ancient Egypt, Jack and Sam disappear from view by laying down after their kiss. Sparks then fly around the time device and Carter utters, "I can fix that."

    We actually have no idea what occurred after that. It's possible something happened to the first jumper this time around (the changes they made could have caused Ra to destroy it while leaving, just like the changes the first Sg-1 made caused him to take the gate). So if Carter couldn't fix the second one they might have been stuck in Ancient Egypt or she may have fixed it and they might indeed have taken it (or the first one). No time travel jumper has been seen since then, so their fates are up in the air.

    All we know is that something must have gone wrong as both sets of Sg-1 intended to go back to the future when their missions were complete. For example, maybe they did travel back, but they ended up arriving a few years later, we just never got to see that because the show didn't last long enough (it took them 5 years to return to their android counterparts from "Tin Man").

    c) and since there are 2 timeships which survived 3000 years on the 3rd timeline, why didn't the tape indicated where these are along with the zpm?
    The ZPM was buried with the tape by the first Sg-1 when the plan was, not to leave the jumper to be found by the future, but to wait until the rebellion started and then recover the jumper so they could return to their own time. This also means it could not have contained any information about the location of the second jumper unless the second group recovered it and added their own recording. However, since they know the first jumper was successfully found near the tomb that the ZPM and tape were buried in, they could have tried to move the second jumper there. By leaving it where it was and updating the tape, there's no guarantee that it wouldn't be found earlier in history, so relocating it would have been the best thing to do if they couldn't get the time device working again.

    Again, though, what exactly the second group did with their lives and the jumper is intentionally left up in the air.

    At the end of the movie, Daniel handed the medallion to Jack and told him to give it back to Catherine. I'm not aware of it ever being said that Catherine gave it back to him on the TV show, or of the TV show continuity stating that Daniel kept it instead of returning it like in the movie.

    In Torment of Tantalus, Catherine has the medallion, which she states she never takes off. I don't think she gave it back to Daniel until she died.

    The only other time you see it is in Full Circle when Daniel is trying to explain to Jack what the Eye of Ra looks like, but with him being ascended it could have just as easily been something he conjurered up.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    I always imagined that to be the case. I never thought it was the real one.
