Storyline

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

The first half of the episode is a tired re-tread of Avalon. Except this time a young girl, who will never again be seen in the series, pulls out the sword to save the day. Well, it's really Daniel shooting control panel crystals that turns off the knight to save the day.

The second half is Daniel and Mitchell searching for Merlin's anti-ascended weapon, while the remainder of SG-1 rushes toward the super gate to stop the Ori.

Col. Carter and the Asgard almost dial out on the super gate before the Ori dial in. But almost isn't enough.

Teal'c engages the assistance of the Lucien Alliance. The Asgard show up. There's two Odyssey class ships, as well as a lot of Jaffa with their Ha'tak vessels. They don't stand a chance against the Ori ships, which shoot the armada to pieces.

The episode picks up after the arrival at the super gate. But the action is ruined by slow motion sequences that mostly focus on people sitting down. It's pretty lame.

The end scenes are a nod to Star Trek with the broken armada (after the Borg attack) and to Star Wars with Vala looking out an Ori ship window the way Luke looked out into the galaxy after he received his robot hand.

The Ori conquest fleet has arrived. The forces of good still don't have a weapon to use against the Ori, and it looks like the good guys can't stop the Ori ships. Now what?
