Storyline

Teal'c is on his home planet, Chulak, where there is rebellion among the Jaffa warriors. He is betrayed as a sacrilegious sholva (traitor) by Rak'nor, son of a Jaffa friend of his father, and handed to Terac, the torturer of system lord Heru'ur. Ignorant of his fate, the other SG-1 members join Jacob in a risky attempt to take hold of a space mine using a Tok'ra ship piloted by Jacob. En route to the Apophis' spaceship, the expedition finds out that Teal'c is being offered as a confidence-building present from Heru'ur to cement an alliance against the other system lords, which would make the Goa'uld threat more dangerous then ever. They decide to save Teal'c but their attempt fails. However Teal'c's resistance to torture and clear conviction that Goa'uld are no gods finally convinces Rak'nor, who now bravely acts.

Another Engaging Episode
13 July 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On Chulak, Teal'c has a secret encounter with Rak'nor and Ma'Kar to give support to a rebellion that is planned by the Jaffa warriors. Out of the blue, Rak'nor betrays Teal'c that is captured and sent to Heru 'ur to be tortured by Terok. Meanwhile Selmak is at the SGC and learns that Heru'ur and Apophis are making an alliance that will make Apophis more powerful in the galaxy. They have scheduled a meeting at a minefield and Selmak discovers that Heru'ur intends to give Teal'c to Apophis to show good faith. Selmak plans to use the mine to destroy Heru'ur's spaceship and Daniel helps him translating how the mines operate. Will their plan succeed? Will Teal'c be saved?

"The Serpent's Venom" is another engaging episode of SG-1. There are a few points that are not clear, like how the mine manual was achieved or what happened to Tobin system to be extinct. But Teal'c is trying to raise a rebellion against the false gods and maybe he might succeed in the future. My vote is eight.

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