Did You Know?


Master Bra'tac: Two evenings ago, do you remember clearly what you did?
Maz'rai: Bra'tac, I do not remember what I ate yesterday. Very sad, I admit, but proof of nothing other than old age.

Politics, subversion and loss
2 February 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This time we get to follow Teal'c and Bra'tac in their efforts to uncover a plot to subvert the Jaffa council, and I have to say it's good to get a Jaffa episode without any of the usual pigheaded, hostile nonsense they tend to spout. Someone's brainwashing members of the council, and for the sake of the Free Jaffa nation, our heroes must reveal the truth! We get some good scenes of interactions between Teal'c/Bra'tac and the council members, some of whom are old friends of Bra'tac, and the whole brainwashing story is pretty well carried out.

There's a "B" plot in this episode as well, concerning Mitchell and a war buddy of his (Ferguson) who is dying because of an aneurysm caused by a piece of shrapnel in his head. Mitchell feels he's to blame for the situation, and this leads to some rather touching moments between them. Turns out, Ferguson has guessed pretty exactly what Mitchell's top secret assignment is, which a frustrated Mitchell isn't at liberty to confirm. In the end, he decides to do it anyway, and Carter brings him a modified version of the memory device from "Collateral Damage". Nice continuity there. The scene where Ferguson gets to live Mitchell's memories of his adventures with SG-1, is very moving because basically a dying war hero for a short while gets to be part of something great!

All in all, the two separate plot lines come together nicely because of their underlying themes of bravery, guilt and loss. The show is on a hot streak now, without a weak episode since "Babylon". Sci-fi geeks everywhere; rejoice!
