Storyline

The SG-1 team travels to the Antarctic science station when the scientists there discover an ancient body in the ice. The age of the ice core samples would indicate that the body predates mankind. As they thaw the body, it comes to life. It's a young woman who they call Ayiana. As Ayiana gains strength, those around her all fall ill having contracted an unknown virus which they believe Ayiana carried. The new arrival also shows healing powers and can seemingly cure any illness just by touch. As she does so however she weakens to the point of death. In the end, only Col. O'Neill remains untreated and SGC seeks the help of the Tok'ra who offer an unexpected solution. Written by garykmcd

Thawing a limb out of the evolutionary tree :P
3 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I don't really know what to think of that episode. The first ten minutes manage to seriously shake several fundamental tenets of the Stargate series (and of natural history in general)... and completely forgets about them for the last 30mn. Is the mysterious young woman an Ancient? Why was she found frozen near the site of the Antarctic Gate? Why was she sick? Why is she able to understand everything and to use words, but never tries to actually *speak*?! (seriously: not even "multipass".) And for that matter, why is it always a beautiful young woman? Did one of the scriptwriters have a fixation on Sleeping Beauty?

The ending is not much better: it leaves all those mysteries completely intact since the young woman brutally dies (here again, without any of the usual warning signs), unfortunately without curing O'Neill. And after spending 10mn ascertaining that O'Neill would rather be dead than blended with a Tok'ra, Carter needs about 20s to convince him otherwise.

So, in case you didn't get my point: this episode is far too ambitious. It raises some very interesting questions but cannot possibly solve them within 40mn while having the characters interact AND fight with their environment. You would need at least a two-parter for that. So as far as I am concerned, this is a waste of good ideas --mystification instead of mystery.
