Samantha and Jack In Metropolis
2 July 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In an underground power plant, Jack, Daniel, Sam and Teal'c are workers and do not know each other. Out of the blue, Teal'c has a glimpse of his past memory of the SG-1 and is captured by guards and brain washed to forget again his memories. Soon the viewer learns that the SG-1 had traveled to a planet to negotiate exchange of technology with Administrator Calder. However Jack finds slavery in the planet where workers have hard labor in the underground to give comfort to the upper class on the surface, protected from the cold weather by a dome. Jack refuses to deal with Calder and the SG-1 is abducted and submitted to an amnesia treatment to work in the underground under the command of Brenna. Meanwhile General Hammond is lured by Calder that tells that Sam and Daniel had insisted to go outside the dome with Jack and Teal'c. What will happen to the SG-1?

"Beneath the Surface" is an episode of Stargate SG-1 that uses the storyline of "Metropolis". The screenplay makes the show very intriguing but the conclusion is predictable. What might have happened between Jack and Sam along the period they lived in the underground? They seem to be frustrated when they learn that they are colonel and major respectively. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Beneath the Surface"
