Storyline

As the Goa'uld attack fleet approach Earth, all four members of the SG-1 team are taken prisoner. They get help from an unexpected source when Bre'tac, Teal'c's mentor, reveals that he is on board. Apophis has delayed the attack until his son Klorel is revived, giving them some time to prepare. SG-1 has used all of the C4 on one of the two ships but must find a way to dispose of the second. Back at Stargate Command, Lt. Col. Bert Samuels arrives as a Pentagon liaison officer but also reveals a new weapon they have developed. General Hammond is dubious. They begin to transport humans to transport humans to an Alpha site in order to ensure the continuation of mankind. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Lt. Colonel Samuels presents his "Goa'uld-Buster"-Rockets, he explains that the warheads are mantled with the stealth-material used on stealth-bombers, so the Goa'uld should not be able to detect them, "even if they have something like our radar". This is an incorrect statement from Samuels, as to the fact that stealth-technology would not disguise the heat-trail produced by the rocket-engines. Stealth-bombers use a special construction to permit only a minimum of heat-radiation to leave the engine-section, which is impossible to use on the engine of a rocket. So even "our" radar would have easily picked up the approaching rockets. See more »

Not A Bad Day
9 June 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Hammond is sending people to Alpha Site to build a colony there in case of destruction of Earth. Meanwhile the missiles do not penetrate the Goa'uld shields and General Hammond assumes the SGC again. Bra'tac teams up with the SG-1 and they assume the bridge; however Daniel is seriously wounded and asks Jack to be left behind since the group must blow up both spacecrafts. They head Klorel's ship in the direction of Apophis'ship, and they use two small ships to leave the spacecraft. Meanwhile Daniel foes to the sarcophagus to recover his injuries. Will their plan work?

"The Serpent's Lair" is a great conclusion for Season 1. Now it seems that the Apophis has been destroyed and Earth is free of this powerful enemy. In the end, it was not a bad day for the SG-1. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "The Serpent's Lair"
