Martouf leads a Tok'ra delegation with crushing news for Carter: her father Jacob/Selmak has been captured by Sokar and imprisoned on Netu, an Egyptian name for hell, on a moon of planet Delmal, from where nobody returns to suffer eternal torture, only Jolinar ever escaped. SG-1 mounts a rescue operation with Martouf, top-priority being any information Selmak can offer about Sokar's plan to subjugate the other system lords, an unprecedented threat for all humanoids in the galaxy. Teal'c must pilot a goa'uld ship and keep it in orbit as landing is impossible except by small pod, but first Martouf taps into Jolinar's memory, which is partially blocked by some trauma beyond physical torture. Only when they're down and in custody of Netu's lord Bynarr, Sam realizes he is the key, in a 'personal' way, but not voluntary as she thought. Sokar learns their presence from Bynnar and orders team and craft destroyed, but this also means there must be a way out. Bynarr's prime Na'onak has and is ... Written by KGF Vissers

The SGC receives Martouf and two Tok'ra and Martouf tells that Sam's father Jacob has been captured by Sokar and sent to be tortured on the infamous prison on Netu. The place is like hell and impossible to flee and only Jolinar has ever escaped but has never told how to Martouf. They are worried since Sokar intends to subdue the System Lords and consequently the galaxy. The SG-1 travels with Martouf to rescue Jacob and Teal'c pilots the spacecraft since there is no Stargate on Netu. Martouf tries to retrieve Jolinar's memories to learn how she escaped from Netu, but the process is too painful for Sam. Martouf, Jack, Sam and Daniel travel to the planet in pods and Teal'c stays in orbit to bring them back. However they are captured and Sam believes that Bynarr, who is the responsible for Netu, was in love with Jolinar and let she go. Meanwhile Teal'c is attacked by spaceships sent by Sokar. Will the SG-1 find Jacob and flee from Netu?

"Jolinar's Memories" is an entertaining episode with a flawed premise. How can a skilled military team go to a mission in a planet without knowing the means of escape from the location especially having the background that only one person has ever escaped from the place? Unfortunately the episode is to be continued and the viewer will know the fate of the SG-1 and his friends only on the next show. My vote is seven.
