Daniel finds himself in a strange time and place - a diner where Oma is working as a waitress. She gives him a clear choice - he can choose to die or to ascend but if it's the latter, he will not be able to help his friends fight Anubis, who has yet to be disposed of. He strikes up a conversation with another patron, Jim, who has his own take on the situation. Sam meanwhile decides the time has come for her fiancé to meet her father Jacob. Jacob is not well however, something he has kept from Sam for several weeks. After Pete surprises her - he thinks he's found the perfect house for them - Sam realizes she has to come to grips with her feelings for someone else. Teal'c and Master Bra'tac have information that Anubis may be gathering what remains of his forces for an attack on Dakara. Written by garykmcd

A Strong episode in a not so strong season.
24 April 2006 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This episode is my absolute favorite from this season possibly one of the best that I have ever seen. This is surprising since the the season is the transition. You almost might consider season eight the end of Stargate SG1 and the beginning of Stargate SG1 sans RDA. The Daniel Arc is so great. When he is faced with the choice to ascend again and he chooses not to it is quite interesting. I admit I was also quite shocked when Anubis is revealed as someone who I wasn't quite expecting him to be.

The Sam/Jack storyline is good for the shippers. Leaps and bounds are made in the'relationship' between the two. It is also interesting to note that Threads and Moebius pt 2 end the same way, well almost the same way.

Except fish or lack there of and Jack and Sam are sitting slightly differently. . . yeah.
