Description: Awakening from what seems like cryogenic suspension, O’Neill finds himself in a futuristic version of the SGC. He is told that he has been frozen for 79 years and the rest of the SG-1 team perished long ago. But is it real, or a Goa’uld simulation?
Here we are at the Season 2 finale and, yet again, the writers decided to go with the ‘cliffhanger’ idea to end with a bonus portion of ‘clips show’! Hooray! Lame. If you’re going to do a cliffhanger season ender, do not go the ‘clips’ route. Apparently blowing up a nuclear bomb, now that’s a season finale.
So far, I haven’t been too enamored of the season finales for SG-1. They feel flat and somewhat predictable. Here we get the reappearance of yet another Goa’uld that SG-1 has crossed swords with earlier. I guess they couldn’t come up with something better?
While “Out Of Mind” does advance the mythology somewhat, there’s been better episodes.
[O’Neill has a Tok’ra device implanted in his temple.]
O’Neill – “Ahhh! What was that?!”
Dr. Raully – “It’s okay Colonel. That’s all the pain you’ll feel.”
O’Neill – “What a shame.”
