    jack explainin black holes to teal'c is funny.
    Just wait, there are many of us that think he is actualy an ascended ancient simply messing around with lesser mortals.

    I couldn't agree with you more I hate the relationship between her and Cassandra. I completely understand that the young girl would get attached to the savior figure. However for Sam to reciprocate seemed really out of character.

    That was a great Jack/Teal'c moment.

    TEAL'C: I still do not understand this black hole.

    O'NEILL: Well a black hole is this really...big thing. It um...well basically it's uh...massive...hole, out there.

    TEAL'C: I see.

    O'NEILL: What happens is, everything gets sucked into it, even light, that's why we can't see it. Just gets...sucked in.

    TEAL'C: Thank you.

    You know how Teal'c called Nirrti "he"?

    Is it possible that Teal'c did this because the last he had heard of Nirrti, he/she was in a male host? And that some time between that time and "Fair Game", Nirrti went into a new, female host? I don't recall Teal'c showing any surprise about Nirrti's appearance in "Fair Game"... So could this be the case?

    According to Hindu mythology, the god Nirrta is the male form of the goddess Nirrti so if Nirrti were in a male host, she would probably use the name Nirrta.

    It was probably just a typo or a misspoken line.

It also shows a more advanced medical sittuation in which science-fiction bonds with our modern medical abilities. The off world black hole observatory is also extremely cool. There is a lot more to this episode than Cassandra this is a key episode leading up to the SGC's fight with not only Apophis, but the Goa'uld system lords.
    Agreed completely. This for me was another of the episodes I original thought was boring but actually looking at it now while not my favourite episode it did have it's moments.

    Seeing that "softer" side of Carter was nice, the only other time we heard her speak about children was the kids she is an auntie to "I miss them like hell" I think she said a couple of episodes back. Janet and Carter certainly have a friendship you can see it come out and especially with all the scenes they have together.

    First look at the Mothership bit of a tease, a glimpse through a monitor but still nice. The Goa'uld/Nirrti aspect was also interesting and kind of shows the lengths Goa'ulds will go to.

    Hehe I like how Jack new about the black hole and about his telescope not being used to spy on the neighbours...initially - class Jack.

    Like several others have mentioned, this was a Sam-centric episode about her getting all emotionally attached with Cassie.

    Now that sounds like I didn't like this episode, but I did. I liked the Jack/Teal'c interaction, I liked the whole "how evil are they? using kids as bombs!" theme, the Janet/Sam and the Sam/Daniel stuff.

    I thought Sam got attached to Cassie a bit quickly. I don't see Sam as the mother type, perhaps this is where/when she makes that final personality shift to realizing she's not going to be a mother? I say personality shift versus decision because I don't think it's a conscious thing, more like a turning point in life where you accept the path you're heading down or you don't. Sam's remark to Teal'c in the park seemed to conclude this as well.

    Also, having that attachment shift so quickly to Janet seems a bit bizarre, but at least Cassie was kept in the SG family.

    Exactly 11 years ago on Halloween Friday Oct. 31 1997 this show first aired. Today is Halloween, Friday Oct. 31 2008 and the Stargate Franchise is still going strong. At the time I thought that this was a pretty powerful episode (using a child as a bomb) and Carter breaking orders to be with that child (comforting her) even though it would cost Carter her life. (And also that scene with Carter in the elevator struggling with her decision to leave Cassandra was very moving.) And at the time what made the episode neat was that we got a glimpse of a guald mothership. This was the first time we saw a fully formed mothership. In the original movie we had only seen the pyramid part of the ship. It was a good Halloween episode because it was dark and was a good episode in general because it had a happy ending. (Cassandra living and getting a dog, etc.)

    we do see the black hole, right at the start and also in the distance of the malp on the comp screen. i think this is an important episode where blackholes were seen as an important part of stargate

    the whole Cassie being a bomb and sam not leaving her was a really ice touch to the episode. It shows how caring sam really is. And how cruel nirti can be.
    Some say that he has only one ear.
    And that he solved the Da Vinci Code in 3 minutes.

    Cassie got attached to Sam first. Sam got attached when Cassie wouldn't let Sam leave her alone. I don't think Cassie made a rapid attachment shift to Janet. When we see her in the park with Sam, she's still attached to Sam but she knows she can't stay with Sam because of the amount of time Sam spends off-world. I also don't think Sam will have realized she'll never be a mother at this stage. Amanda Tapping was only 32 when this was made. Assuming Sam's the same age, that's a little early to realize you'll never be a mother.

    I enjoyed this episode. The moment in the elevator when Cassie woke up, followed by Sam's inner conflict over leaving her, and Sam's decision to go back to her were incredibly moving. I admit that I cried.

    Wonder what happened to the dog. We never see him again.

    Hey.

    I also made a new thread about the questians. But was becouse i first not could reply here. But seems like i can now

    It was a great episode, but i have 2 questians for it.

    1: Why is it called Singularity? Was it becouse that Sam cant explain the attractment for the girl? Or something else? Everything that gets in the singularity gets destroyed, but cant really find a solution to why the episode have that name.

    2: Where is the black hole? I know we cant see it, but what is the reason that they have to look in the telescope then? Atleast as the explain they can see some "dust" that get "sucked" in. But we never see that?

    Becouse i am asking the questians, is becouse i need to analyse the episode for a school project, and those is the only two questians i have about the episode, which seems like i cant find the answer to other places

    Thanks, and sorry for my english. Im from Denmark

    From Kehaan.

    I agree. I also loved the part where Jack tried to explain black holes to Teal'c. Classic.

    A good character development episode for Sam, with some nice humor thrown in throughout the episode.

    However I do remember the 1st time I saw this episode, I thought that Cassandra should have bonded with Teal'c instead of Sam, seeing that the 1st time Cassandra saw Sam she was wearing the hazmat suit whereas Teal'c wasn't.
    But nevertheless quite a good episode.

    Great Sam ep. Teal'c looks so intimidating even when he smiles that it didn't surprise me Cassandra bonded with Sam instead...

    I suppose I'm the only one (haven't read all the post) who sees a similarity between the scenes of when Ripley and Newt first interact and when Sam and Cassie go through their silent period. Also I need to mention I generally don't like the episodes with kids (I might like one other one I guess with the kid that the bug alien creates) but I really like this one with Cassandra.
