Having obtained permission to live off the base, Teal'c rents an apartment telling neighbors that he has recently arrived from Mozambique. He's under orders to keep a low profile but can't seem to help himself when it comes to helping his neighbors. He helps one of who is about to be assaulted by three thugs but it's his next door neighbor who seems to need assistance. Krista is having problems with her boyfriend Doug. Teal'c soon realizes that he is beating her and warns him that should he hurt her, Teal'c will kill him. It all becomes very difficult when Doug is found dead in Krista's apartment. Daniel Jackson soon after receives an offer - translate a Goa'uld text and he will get ironclad evidence that Teal'c is innocent. Meanwhile, Carter is shocked when her boyfriend Pete Shanahan tells he asked for a transfer to the local police department - and asks her to marry him. Written by garykmcd

Several cameos occur quickly in the scene at the playground with Lt. Col. Samantha Carter and Pete Shanahan (about 8:00 into the episode). As they walk away from the hot dog stand, the man walking up carrying a child is Peter DeLuise, writer and director of the episode. The child is DJ, son of executive producer Michael Greenburg. Just seconds later, the woman waving behind the slide is Nikki Smook (Michael Greenburg's wife) and the woman in the red coat is Amanda Tapping's mother. See more »

The Trust is Here
19 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Teal'c acts like a superhero. He's bringing too much attention to himself. He meets a midriff exposing hottie, his neighbor, who has a bad boyfriend. Teal'c teaches her some Jaffa martial arts. She kills her boyfriend. The NID, now the bad elements have become "THE TRUST", uses the opportunity to make it look like Teal'c killed the boyfriend. Now they can use that to blackmail Daniel Jackson into translating some ancient text into Goa'uld.

The TRUST ultimately kidnaps Daniel after they shoot a coffee cup to prove they mean business. The use the hottie neighbor, who Daniel has met once, as leverage to force Daniel to translate the text. Two seconds after he translates it, they upload it somewhere to confirm the translation.

If they can confirm it why couldn't they translate it? Who knows? Who cares? There's too much Pete. He asks Sam to marry him. She accepts. I wish I were a Goa'uld symbiote. Then I could kill my host rather than see so much Pete. He also helps track down THE TRUST and Daniel Jackson, and the midriff hottie.

When everything is resolved, Teal'c moves out of his apartment. The generic neighborhood kid shows Teal'c that the kid's skateboard is now adorned with Apophis' Jaffa symbol, just like Teal'c's head. COOL.

When Jack became a general, I was worried that missions without him wouldn't be the same. But since that episode and until this one, there hasn't been much off world activity without Jack.

SG-1 was trapped in an off camera base.

SG-1 briefly went to a planet to talk to some people. Daniel was stuck there after a nuclear exchange. But half the action was at SGC.

SG-1 has turned into a show that doesn't involve much off world activity.

Someone better kill off Pete.
