He accepts to undergo a 'high tech hypnosis' to retrieve information of use in the present war against them which is going badly, involving earth's ten endangered colonies on other planets. However Major General Trofsky, the new base commander, and his female assistant tell Daniel and Sam, in different sections, that each of them is the sole survivor: it's all make-believe to probe their brains about the weaknesses of earth and the Alliance of the four races. Meanwhile Teal'c awakes on earth, where it took Dr. Frasier months to save him from death, there was no trace of his teammates and he resigns when general Hammond refuses permission to keep searching.

The Beginning of One of the Best Episodes
6 November 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Colonel O'Neil awakes in a tank and is informed Dr. Trofsky and Dr. Raully that he has cryogenic hibernated for almost eight years. Further, his friends died in a mission. He is submitted to a technique to retrieve information of his past missions. Then, they do the same with Daniel and Sam, telling that only they have survived. However Jack overhears a conversation in goaul'd and discovers the truth, preparing to rescue his friends. Meanwhile Teal'c awakes in the Sg-1 and General Hammod does not allow him to look for his friends. He leaves the SGC and heads to Chulak, planning to gather an army to rescue his friends.

"Out of Mind" is the beginning of one of the best episodes and the last one in Season Two. It follows the shameful procedure of showing a great episode, interrupting the intriguing story in its climax and forcing the viewer to wait from 12 March until 15 June to watch the conclusion. My vote is eight.
