Stargate Command is visited by General Jacob Carter on a mission - actually requested by his symbiote Selmak, who wants him to deal with his long-repressed rift with Sam's brother Mark - to ask SG-1's help in the hunt for the sole system-lord the Tok'Ra never tracked down, Seth, the Egyptian god of chaos and total evil, who plausibly never left earth but hides as Ra put a high price on his head. Daniel finds a plausible series of Seth-cults, each ending in a blood-bath for followers, the latest being outside Seattle, led by Seth Fargo. Jacob and SG-1 arrange to take over the case jurisdiction from the ATF by presidential intervention. As Daniel predicts, they find escape tunnels and get in, but are awaited and disarmed, to be exposed to nish'ta, a powerful biological submission drug, and when Seth senses Jolinar's traces destined for elimination.

The Evil God of Chaos, Fathers and Sons
21 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

General Jacob Carter comes to the SGC following the request of Selmak to seek out the evil god of chaos Seth that has vanished centuries ago in Egypt. Selmak also wants him to resolve his relationship with his estranged son Mark. Daniel tracks him down to the present days and discovers that he might be the leader of a cult in Seattle. When Jacob and the SG-1 arrive at the spot, they meet Jason Levison, who is the father of the follower Tommy and confirms their thoughts about Seth. Soon the ATF interferes with their investigation but the president of the USA assigns the SG-1 and Jacob in the command of the operation. Now the SG-1 and Jacon needs to plan how avoid casualties in their action and how to face the drug nish'ta that Seth uses to control his worshipers.

"Seth" is a full of action episode of "Stargate SG-1", with a good story. The dramatic side is the relationship of fathers Jacob and Jason with their sons Mark and Tommy. Sam shows how powerful she is defeating Seth. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Seth"
