A dream reveal to Vala Morgan Lefay's clues to three planets must be combined to one Stargate address containing symbols for each, and only one qualifies- when they arrive, the local medieval society tells them a week earlier Ba'al was there, and warns nobody ever returned from the quest. The arrival of an Ori force to impose conversion convinces the local library's guardian Orsic, who shows a parchment with cryptic instructions for the Arthurian quest based on five virtues, to help them look for the Sangrail. The first obstacle is a maze through a time distortion field, which leads them to Ba'al, already trapped for three days by a chest which contains nothing, but releases them if everyone puts something in it. Daniel then realizes Orsic is not a local but a disguised Ori, and indeed it's Adria, who decided to enlist them since the prophecy requires searchers of pure hearts, so they solve the next riddles together, practicing each of the virtues...

When Lt. Col. Mitchell tells Adria she's done something with her eyes, it's in reference to Morena Baccarin reverting to her natural eye color due to the difficulty she previously had with the contact lenses she wore for her character. See more »


As SG-1 and the librarian finish passing through the time-displacement trap, on a wide angle shot you can see the path clearly worn in the dirt; obviously the take that got used in the final cut was not one of the first takes. See more »


Ba'al: Why don't you do something? You're the Orici. You're supposedly possessed of significant powers. So snuff out the flame and get us on our way.
Adria: My abilities don't work that way.
Ba'al: Of course, how does the saying go? "All flash, no photo?"
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter: Actually, it's "All flash, no substance."
Ba'al: I prefer my version.
Adria: Would you care for a demonstration?
[Adria pauses then turns away]
Adria: Taking your life would be a waste of my time.
Ba'al: Which I suppose would be put to better use complaining?
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter: Oh, geez, why don't you two just ...

Stargate SG-1 and the Last Crusade
11 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the discovery side of Stargate at its best. They're searching for something important. They face challenges reminiscent of those faced by Indy in "Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail". SG-1, Ba'al and Adria temporarily join forces, in a way that makes sense.

The episode ends in spectacular fashion, with the team and their companions facing a dragon. Nobody thought the dragon in the prophecy was literally a dragon.

Wow. There it is flying up from the depths.

One minor point is that SG-1 doesn't take action after Daniel discovers Adria is without her powers. Earlier, they tried to shoot her. But they thought her powers protected her. Once Daniel figures out only her pendant protected her, they could at least try tossing her to her death. After all, she's the leader of an invasion force that threatens the entire galaxy. Once out of the cave, she will have her god-like powers. She'll kill them.

I'd have at least thrown her off the edge of the cliff in the hopes it would kill her.

Overall this is a good episode. It's an exciting quest square in the middle of the Ori story.
