The quantum mirror Daniel found in "There But for the Grace of God" brings to Area 51 an alternate Kawalsky and Dr. Carter from another reality, this time one where Sam never joined the military but became Jack's wife and the Goa'uld just overran earth. Dr. Carter begins suffering from temporal entropic cascade failure, a paradoxical effect of having two versions of the same person in the same reality and realises that she must return to her own reality or both Sams will eventually perish. SG-1 embark to the alternate reality to intercede and prevent the Goa'uld from conquering Earth before our General Hammond has the mirror disabled. The alternative Teal'c remained Apophis's loyal first prime, so the 'real' one can assume his identity to infiltrate the invading force but they are discovered and captured, but this only serves as the ideal diversion while the Sams also contact the alternate Asgard...

Alternate Reality
11 January 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Area 51, an alternate Kawalsky and Dr. Carter from another reality crosses the quantum mirror and are sent to the SGC. They are interrogated by General Hammond and the SG-1 team and soon she is affected by the temporal entropic cascade failure since she is sharing the same reality with Major Samantha Carter. Sam, who is civilian and was married with Jack in the other reality, must return to her reality; otherwise she will die with her twin due to the paradox. The SG-1 without Major Carter decides to help Kawalsky and Dr. Carter to return since Earth has been invaded by the Goa'uld and to ask for help to the alternate Asgard to fight against the invaders. Will they succeed?

"Point of View" is among the best episodes of "Stargate SG-1" with the idea of alternate reality. The episode is full of action and there is an interesting romance between Dr. Samantha Carter from another reality and Colonel Jack O'Neill. The conclusion is also well resolved. My vote is eight.
