Jackson falls in love
29 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Were I had my doubts in season one about the hype of Stargate back then in the nineties this episode shows how a series can finally find its way story wise and moves further in a direction with an actual storyline and not like in season one were each episode stood on its own.

The planets do always looked the same but here there's more to discover. From now on you have to watch closely to what happened before with SG-1 to understand it all.

It's all about Jackson this time while walking in a forest with SG-1 they see how a girl is ready to fall into an abyss, suicide but Jackson saves her. Not knowing she's a princess and not knowing why she's trying to kill herself he's actually chosen by the princess to become her husband. But SG-1 is captured because the ruler of the planet thinks they wanted to kill the princess. Jackson is drugged by the Sarcophagus and the rest of SG-1 is sentenced to work in the mines until they die. Only Jackson can save his team from death...

The Sarcophagus plays an important role here and we did have seen it earlier in some episodes. It is explained what it does but you have to pick it up into your memory for further episodes. A rather good episode that was over before you know it and the jokes coming from Colonel Jack do work out fine too.
