Storyline

When an entire people may suffer the fatal wrath of a Prior of the Ori for not converting, General Landry orders Carter to try out an experimental device based on Merlin's technology to transport their whole village. The test works, but before they can activate it on a sufficiently large scale, an Ori force takes the village, wounds Sam and kills villagers near the Stargate before Vala's very eyes. Her husband, Tomin, captures her but claims to not love her. He is ordered, as punishment for being deceived by her, to re-educate her. Sam and Cam are able to activate the functioning part of the device, so their building is cloaked from the Ori, who threaten the village leaders and discover and arrest Teal'c. Even after the remaining villagers bow in submission, the Prior decides to destroy everyone since he couldn't find Sam, which makes Tomin doubt his faith, inform Vala, and confront the Prior.

Nicely done
17 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I think this was a nicely done episode that really gets to the core of the Carter character. She has always been tough, always been smart and always been resourceful during the previous nine seasons.

But in this episode, she's also shown to be as vulnerable and human as everyone else.

Despite her vulnerability, despite her pain and despite her recognition that she might not survive this situation, she still has the mental acuity to be the problem solver we've loved for almost 10 years.

This is one of the can't miss episodes in the series.
