Storyline

Sam manages to activate an Ancients' device they found at the Glastonbury site and she and Mitchell are shifted into a phase that makes them invisible to everyone. Daniel soon figures out just what is going on but Dr. Lee's proposed solution sends Daniel to the same plane as Sam and Mitchell. There he is able to translate information explaining that Merlin had created a weapon against the Ori - and provides a gate address where it can be found. Meanwhile, Teal'c travels to a Jaffa planet that has sent out a distress call. The two events are related. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Mitchell and Carter are sent into a parallel dimension where they cannot be seen or heard, and supposedly cannot interact with physical objects in their original dimension (as when Carter's hand passes through a coffee cup). Yet they are able to walk around on the same floor that everyone else uses, can hear words spoken by those in the original dimension (which would require the air to carry sound vibrations to their ears), and can see things in that dimension (requiring light to reflect off their retinas). They also are still able to breathe the air, and Mitchell travels through the Stargate as if he were still composed of matter that can interact with the gate. See more »

Major General Hank Landry: You better be sure about this Doctor, because if you make me disappear there won't be a dimension safe enough for you.

See, this is what I like about Stargate: even an already-used plot can still work, because SGC learn their lessons. So when Carter and Mitchell realise they've shifted dimensions, they immediately think back on Crystal Skull and go straight to Daniel. The long series of trials and errors with the Mantle device is honest comedy, and it is entertaining to watch Carter grow increasingly frustrated with her inability to solve problems, whereas Mitchell is mostly concerned about his inability to eat. Fortunately, a new development with the Priors and the Sodan Jaffa soon has him and Teal'c occupied elsewhere.

The plot with Volnek is clearly secondary (I mean, nothing of consequence really happens, except that Earth loses yet another ally) but it still works, and some effort has been made to link both stories. (Btw, I wish somebody had mentioned the Caveman virus from The Broca Divide, because Volnek's condition really reminded me of it.) Also, I never tire of watching the "new" Teal'c with his fondness for twin machine guns and for hitting Mitchell. All in all, SG1 is starting to feel more like a group of pals than a military unit, but who cares?

So granted, the show is starting to show signs of running out of new concepts (as Mitchell mentions, after Alternate Universe and Alternate Dimensions, he only has Time Travel left to experience). But this particular repetition doesn't feel too much like one, and it isn't gratuitous since we learn capital news. And may I mention, Lee's endless fumbles with the Mantle device are much better handled than Jay Felger's disastrous Avenger 2.0. virus had been. By the way, it was rather unfair to laugh at his miniaturisation theory. It wouldn't have been the most bizarre event at SGC.
