Description: SG-1 races against Apophis to find the Harsesis child.
Apologies to everyone expecting an SG-1 yesterday, my internet connection went out the night before and I didn’t get a chance to watch this one until much later. I’ll give a very short commentary this time, mostly because I don’t think the episode deserves a long one.
Apophis (who won’t die) has located the Harsesis child and SG-1 tries to recover him first. Basically it turns out the child is in the care of an alien on an unknown world, with a Zen koan spewing monk as a watchman. This whole episode was just a big ‘ho hum’ for me. Nothing too exciting, some funny lines from Jack and not much else.
The one thing that did cross my mind was this: Apophis in specific and the Goa’ulds in general are becoming tiresome villains. It would be nice to put them to rest and move on to something else. Just me.
[SG-1 encounters the Zen monk.]
Bra’tac – “I believe he wishes us to take off our boots.”
O’Neill – “Yeah, look, uh, we’ve been walking a ways today…”
Monk – “Your journey is only begun.”
O’Neill – “Yeah, I’m just sayin’, I think I’m doin’ us all a big favor by keepin’ these babies on.”
[Daniel tries to explain the monk’s purpose.]
Jackson – “The monk is just someone who’s sort of taken up a curatorship.”
O’Neill – “Kind of a janitor?”
Jackson – “More of a guide.”
O’Neill – “An usher?”
