1 February 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Yet another really annoying Jaffa, spouting meaningless bulls**t about honour and vengeance while refusing to listen to reason. Isn't this getting old? Don't the writers see how downright stupid this is?

Anyway; while the concept isn't all bad for this one, the execution is. SG-1 are looking for a group of Jaffa called the Sodan. Naturally, they're hostile morons who attack without warning. Mitchell gets hit and captured, but not without wounding one of the Sodan, whom gets taken back to the SGC. The way this is done seems a bit contrived, but all in the name of plot I guess.

A Sodan named Jolan trains Mitchell in the fighting ways of the Sodan so he can get killed in a ritualistic fight against the brother of the Sodan he shot. He also tries to convince the Sodan that the Ori are false gods. SG-1 try to get Mitchell back while working on an anti-Prior device AND convincing "their" Sodan that the Ori are false gods.

The clever (though not original) twist of this episode is that Jolan turns out to be the brother of the Sodan Mitchell shot, and also that Jolan tricks both his brethren and Mitchell in order to save him. This episode is an utter mess, but for this twist I'll give it a 2.
