David Thomson ...
Matthew Walker ...
Martin Christopher ...


Based on the information Vala gave them, SG-1 travels to the planet where Merlin may have hidden his secret weapon to defeat ascended beings. There they find an appropriately medieval village and learn that Merlin kept a library there. The locals have never been inside owing to a curse that on anyone who dares enter but SG-1 finds a way in. Once inside, they find a secret chamber that may reveal the location of the weapon. SGC meanwhile have located the Ori's supergate. Sam's attempt to get control of it is too late and four Ori make their way through. In the ensuing battle, much of Earth's fleet is destroyed and the future of several SGC members is left in doubt. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


During the scene in which Mitchell is teaching village children to sword fight, a cell phone can be heard to ring in the background. See more »


Dr. Daniel Jackson: This is interesting. This is a-a reference to Merlin's prophetic abilities. There's a-a similar myth on Earth, that Merlin could see the future because he actually aged backwards in time. It's not meant to be taken literally, but we have seen that a lot of legends and folklore have a-a strong basis in fact. Avalon, Atlantis...
Teal'c: The Easter Bunny.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: I guess there's a few exceptions.

This is NOT the finale I ordered !
13 August 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Ooo-kay, this is not a finale. This is the *prelude* to a finale.

In the first years, the show used to split the finale into two parts, with the fight starting at the end of a season, stopping right in the middle (amongst howls of frustration) and ending with the premiere of the next season. But at least the fight STARTED. Camelot, even though it concludes season 9, feels like any other episode in the season. It's mostly another feverish quest for useless trinkets which MIGHT lead to miraculous solutions, while the Ori and their minions sweep away everything that comes their way. The end. I'm sorry, but I feel like asking for a refund. Or CPR.

So we spend a lot of time fooling around in Camelot, looking for Merlin's library, Merlin's PIN code, Merlin's necklace. There's a rather nice, if predictable, variation on the Excalibur legend, Mitchell shows how much his swordsmanship has improved this year, and Daniel's homily about magic is interrupted twice in a funny way. This is honest stuff for a standard episode. Not for a finale, sorry to insist.

Fortunately, the last minutes, with the SuperGate partly save the episode. Watching *all* the forces in our galaxy finally unite against a common enemy is quite impressive. For a moment, it even looks as if Carter is going to pull it out, but this is really not her season (besides, simply avoiding the confrontation would make for very bad storytelling). The Ori finally arrive in a really dramatic way (that's one BIG kawoosh!). The SFX are really excellent, but then they usually are. Anyway, the Ori's arrival and the cataclysmic space fight are particularly spectacular, especially as shown from Carter's ant-like point of view, and the slow-motion sequence, although a bit over-dramatic, certainly feels ominous.

So we're left hanging till next season. I had been holding my breath, expecting great things from this episode. I'm still hoping they will happen next year, but I will certainly have to start breathing again before that --or get that CPR.
