Description: Daniel Jackson reunites with Sha’re.
A rescue attempt to save many Abbydonian slaves on the planet Kasuf leads SG-1 to encounter Sha’re, Daniel’s wife. Daniel attempts to reach her but the Goa’uld is too strong and tries to kill him. Teal’c intervenes by killing Sha’re and thus earning Jackson’s anger.
After returning to Earth, Jackson resigns from SGC but has visions of Sha’re, urging him to return to SGC so he can find their son. Many things ran through my mind while watching this. One, would the government just let Daniel walk back into civilian life what with all the above top secret information he knows? Maybe. But more importantly, is it just me or does anyone else find the Daniel centric character episodes to be, well, less than intriguing? I don’t know what it is, maybe Shanks isn’t as good at drama as he is at his regular character or maybe the writers can’t put together a really decent character episode for Jackson. Whatever the case, I find myself leery of watching any of his character episodes, I just don’t find them that interesting.
And can someone answer me this: Why in the hell didn’t Teal’c tell everyone about ‘punishment’ for two Goa’ulds who conceive a child? Wouldn’t that have been nice to know oh say, way back in season 2? Yes, the whole introduction of this ‘harseesis’ is shoehorned in and badly.
Oh wait, it’s Bobby Ewing all over again! Good grief.
[O’Neill talks to Jackson about his leaving SGC.]
O’Neill – “We both know you can’t stay away.”
Jackson – “Then I guess we’re both wrong, ’cause I’m gone.”
O’Neill – “Give it a week. You’ll miss me.”
Jackson – “Yes, all the salty, bad-tempered insults, all the illogical arguments…”
O’Neill – “Okay, you’ll miss Carter and Teal’c.”
