During a visit to the Nasyan planet, under the first goa'uld attack in centuries, a victim's breath given mouth-to-mouth infects Sam, at first unnoticed. Soon her behavior changes, more military and assertive, and she seems to suffer from amnesia. Cassie senses immediately Sam really hosts a goa'uld, which is confirmed by her attempt at gunpoint to escape via the star-gate, and since the aliens now seem able to enter via small skin wounds as in her throat, Dr. Fraser points out there may be others in the base. Sam is jailed but allegedly hosts Jolinar, a 'Tok'ra' or good, anti-warlord goa'uld underground rebel, being chased by an 'ashrak', a goa'uld hit man, who has already started his deadly assignment on earth...

Sam takes the lead here
23 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The second entry in season 2 and it shows that the budget was bigger and that the stories itself were better too. On part of the effects they aren't based on clothes or make-up like in season one. Here we do actually have real effects done while using the ring to kill or influence people.

Still, they used stock footage from the flick to start with a Goa'uld death guilders attacking a planet were SG-1 is actually on. They are trying to help the wounded and by doing so Sam is given some infection while giving mouth-to-mouth. Sam has a Goa'uld in her body. But that's not the only problem for SG-1, once on their base there are other Goa'ulds walking around trying to kill Sam.

A very nice story with some good effects.
