Storyline

When Jack is injured unintentionally by a crystal alien, the alien duplicates Jack's form and out of fear of retribution tries to heal Jack. He returns to Earth in place of Jack, while Jack is still unconscious on the planet, to find the one thing he feels will accomplish this; the one thing that cannot be found again. Meanwhile, the 'real' Jack has returned and is trying to convince SGC that he is who he says he is. Written by minnadoon

Trivia

When O'Neill opens his locker and looks through the letters and pictures inside the cigar box, the envelope shows his ex-wife's address (and presumably O'Neill's former address), which is 842 Cranbrooke Lane, Winter Park, CO, 80310. See more »

Goofs

The Clone
23 April 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Colonel O'Neil, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c are researching broken crystals in another planet. O'Neil is injured by a crystal and faints; a clone replaces him and returns to Earth with the SG-1 leaving O'Neul unconscious on the surface of the planet. Then he goes to Sara's home to seek out his son Charlie, who died in an accident. Meanwhile O'Neil awakes and returns to the base. Now he has to prove to the Stargate Command (SGC) that he is Colonel Jack O'Neil and discovers the true intention of his clone.

"Cold Lazarus" is a touching episode of "Stargate SG-1", with a very well written story. The plot has many twists and the encounter of Jack and Sara is heartbreaking but never corny. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Cold Lazarus"
