Storyline

General Hammond has tried everything to get the senates decision to shut down his space program undone, but the president personally refuses to 'commit political suicide': the Stargate will be buried. Daniel's insistence the danger for earth as a whole outweighs everything convinces his military SG-1 colleagues to ignore the commander general's command and dial the address the goa'ald invasion started from in the parallel dimension he visited. They arrive not on a planet but a new, superior type of starship, already launched by hyper-drive. A 'video' proves it belongs to Apophis, who gives command aboard to his son Klorel, whose host is no other then the team's young Abydos friend Skaara, yet overpowering him seems their best move, while Sam installs explosives in the death glider deck with a 24 hours timer just in case, but Jaffa manage to liberate Klorel and the ship goes far faster then expected...

Trivia

During the scene where Carter and Jackson are watching the Jaffa enter the death gliders, you can clearly see a Jaffa in a glider on the far right side of the screen "raising the roof". See more »

Goofs

When the Jaffa are all summoned to hear Apophis on the long-range communication device, the Jaffa woman in the second row, standing next to the sarcophagus, does not have a symbiote pouch. However, this woman does not have a Jaffa symbol on her forehead, like several other similarly dressed women in the shot, so it is possible that they are lesser Goa'uld. Also possible she is "Lo'taur", a human slave serving Goa'uld as described later in Season 5, Episode 15 "Summit". See more »

Quotes

Jack O'Neill: I suggest the two of you figure out how get us back home.
Samantha Carter: Sir, the only way to do that would be to turn this thing around and go back to where we started.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Right, I'll just go tell the pilot.

A Great Episode to be Continued
9 June 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The SGC has been shut down by Senator Kinsey despite the efforts of General Hammond. However, Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c disobey the orders and they travel to the coordinates that Daniel brought from the alternative Earth. They arrive in a room and out of the blue a group of Jaffa brings a large floating ball and leave it in front of the Stargate. Teal'c explains that it is a sort of television for communication purpose. Further, they discover that they are inside a Goa' uld spacecraft that is heading towards Earth to destroy the human race. Then they see Apophis ordering his son Klorel, who is actually Skaara, to wait for him before the ultimate attack. Sam and Daniel plant C-4 everywhere while Jack and Teal'c try to rescue Skaara, but they are captured by the enemy. Meanwhile Major Louis Ferretti assume the SGC and he expects to destroy the Goa'uld spacecrafts with two missiles. Will the Earth defenses suffice to hold the attack? Will the SG-1 survive?

"Within the Serpent's Grasp" is a great episode to be continued and hold the viewers to Season 2. I hate this type of procedure and fortunately I am watching to "Stargate SG-1" with all the DVDs in a non-stop mode. Skaara is gone and Jack has finally accepted the reality. Major Ferretti is an irritating character and I look forward to see his plan fall flat on face. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Within the Serpent's Grasp"
