Master Bra'tac makes a surprise visit to star-base and tells that Apophis and Klorel managed to escape just before their starship exploded and has Rya'c, Tealc's son, in his power. To maintain his position as system-lord he must restore order on Chulac, so SG-1 goes there, also to look for 'sholva' (outcast) Teal'c's family. They find his wife Drey'auc has remarried with high-ranking Jaffa Fro'tak. Teal'c vows to shun her forever after Rya'c's salvation from Apophis's palace, but the boy refuses to come with his 'hataka' (traitor) father and calls the guards so they must retreat without him and soon see him in Apophis' propaganda, however a deliberate wrong detail suggests he has not completely changed sides yet. A search of Fro'tac's house doesn't find the team; Jack follows their host to the palace and prevents him betraying them. Now Jack mistrusts the return of Rya'c too, Teal'c refuses to doubt his son; the others hesitate, and after their return on earth with the boy... Written by KGF Vissers

too sentimental
30 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The stargate gives a warning, an unknown visitor is approaching. Enter Bra'tac. He's already a friend of SG-1 and he has bad news for Teal'c. Apophis escaped and survived the explosion of his mothership (remember episode one of season two). Apophis managed to get Teal'c his son, Rya'c in his power. Bra'tac needs SG-1 to help him to restore order on his planet. Of they go but soon Teal'c come across his wife who is now married to another one. But Teal'c has to save his son.

I found this a mediocre entry for season 2. Somehow the story itself was a it weak. There's not that much going on and you can see it coming that Rya'c is going to be saved and Teal'c his wife Drey'auc is falling in love again with Teal'c. The way the got lost of her new husband is a bit ridiculous and she never had one tear when things go wrong with him. A bit weak also on the effects. Happy endings are typical for SG-1 but it's a bit too soft here. Not my thing.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 1/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
