Storyline

The SGC-base is approached by an al-kesh bomber which lets itself be taken down, so they can capture Ba'al, who offers to exchange the necessary information to find Merlin's weapon for human help to eliminate his clones, which want to kill him. They mistrust his story, as does NIS-agent Malcolm Barrett, who however fails to take over the investigation. Since the captive might actually be a clone, several missions to different planets retrieve and capture all clones, but which is the real Ba'al, and what are his true intentions?

Goofs

Mitchell tells General Landry, that because Carter is the same rank, and that Dr. Jackson is a civilian, plus Tealc and Vala are aliens, he can't give any of them orders. However, in the US military, he would have positional authority over everyone else in SG-1 due to his initial orders to take over command of SG-1. See more »

Quotes

Chief Mst Sgt. Walter Harriman: [chuckles] That's-that's clever, sir.

Ba'als Die Like Jacksons
8 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Star Trek it was red shirts who were expendable. IN early SG-1 it was Jackson dying multiple times. In Season 9 and 10 SG-1 it's Ba'al. They can kill him off because there are Ba'al clones. So each death doesn't matter.

Everyone's still looking for the anti-ascended weapon. But that's the only connection to the Ori story. It could be exciting to have a hunt for Ba'al, but it's done in a way that makes it seem more and more routine. In fact, the routine-ness of it is a purposeful feature of the episode.

"Oh look, we caught two more Ba'al's".

There's lots of ball jokes.

It's a good thing to let the audience know something the heroes don't know. But the clever plan Ba'al executes is so simple that it makes the SGC folks look stupid for not figuring it out and stopping it.

It wasn't a matter of if Ba'al had a way to overcome the transport jamming. It was a matter of where he would go before transporting off the base.

This episode was painful to watch.
