Plot Summary

  • Daniel Jackson, who was left behind fighting off Adria while the other SG1-members escaped through the Stargate, is found working as a Prior: the best in the business, who doesn't need to use any threats to talk people into conversion to Origin. Hoping there is still some of his personality left, the team (plus General Jack O'Neill) kidnaps him. Daniel explains how he temporarily has Merlin's personality and knowledge in himself, and had deliberately allowed Adria to turn him into a Prior, while delaying to finish Merlin's weapon she'd wanted, meanwhile hoping to get an Ori ship for Earth's side. But time is running out, since the team took unexpectedly long to capture him. Still, the generals, Carter, and Vala are most reluctant to go along with releasing him and opening the wormhole he needs to bring the weapon through. Even the White House wants to kill him, or at best, keep him in stasis until he is reverted to his human nature by Merlin's genetic manipulation. But then his plan is wasted- unless the others can be trained to do it in his place (so only they are at risk, not the entire galaxy in case Daniel is Adria's Trojan Horse). After giving them the necessary information, Daniel suddenly frees himself while Richard Woolsey is with him and takes control of a space ship after beaming up Jack too, just after the others have undertaken their mission to Adria's lair, where Daniel, about to be genetically reverted, arrives just in time to tip the balance in favor of...

  • SG-1 travels to a planet where a Prior of the Ori has recently visited. Unlike others, this Prior hasn't been threatening in any way but has only tried to convince them that theirs is the right way. When the Prior finally appears, it's Daniel Jackson whom they beam aboard the Prometheus. Under restraints, Daniel tells them what he's been up to since they last saw him. Adria spent a good deal of time converting him to Origin and he agreed. Daniel assures them it's all part of his plan to destroy the Ori. He's nearly completed Merlin's weapon and his plan is to put it aboard an Ori ship and send it back to them through the super-gate. The question for General Landry is whether Daniel can be trusted - a decision that is taken out of his hands when Richard Woolsey arrives with the news that the IOA has decided Daniel should be eliminated. SG-1 thinks otherwise.
