Riding in the elevator at SGC, O'Neill is visited by Daniel Jackson who needs his help. Daniel tells him that Anubis is headed for Abydos to search for something called the Eye of Ra, a relic that would make Anubis all-powerful. It's essential that SG-1 go to Abydos and secure the Eye but no has seen it - including Daniel - nor has anyone ever been able to find it. On the planet they see their old friend Skaara and with Daniel's help locate the Eye. They also find a tablet that speaks of a lost city of the ancients. When Anubis and his troops land in force there is little anyone can do to stop them. In the end it's left to Daniel to decide if he will try to stop Anubis - thereby breaking a cardinal rule of the Ancients. Written by garykmcd

No More Abydos
15 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode marks the end of Corky Nemec's probationary period. Personally, I was happy with the character: he was a good replacement for Daniel Jackson.

I was even hoping he would remain in the cast but that was a thing not so to be.

In this episode Daniel Jackson appears as an ancient or as an ascended being one last time. And you can feel his frustration at having his hands tied, as an ascended being he is not allowed to interfere with the interactions of flesh and blood beings.

But even though helping SG-1 would be breaking the rules of ascended beings, he decides to do it anyway. but if Daniel Jackson is cheating, he is not the only one doing it.

The Stargate universe is at a crossroads in this episode, one story is ending and a new story is being prepared. From this point on, we start hearing more and more about a lost city of the ancients. Even though we did not know a new franchise was being prepared, it is still an interesting thing to keep hearing a recurring theme which is the promise of a new story arc to add to the many Arcs that we have in this show.

As a season finale, it is almost a letdown. It is not a two-parter and the story is not really resolved. But that does not make it any less a great and pivotal episode. This episode was SG-1's "Luke, I am your father" moment, it is the exact same type of suspense represented in "the Empire strikes back", and for that reason this episode becomes great.

Basically, all of the original threads from the feature film are tied off in this season, including the Skaara and Sha'Re stories, as well as Teal'c's dependence on a Goa'Uld Symbiont. Anubis as depicted in this episode is a new kind of bad guy and he is not so easy to kill as a regular snake head, and even though his agenda seems to be similar to the other snake head system lords, his real purpose cannot be guessed.

And to commemorate this new evil guy, one of original symbols of the series is removed in this episode with a great explosion.
