One of the other SG teams returns to General Hammond with news from the Tok’ra about SG-1’s capture. The General finds no shortage of volunteers willing to mount a rescue mission. On his own after taking his leave of the SGC, Teal’c tries to go home to Chu’lak through the gate and finds Master Bra’tac of the Jaffa resistance, tortured and starved; Bra’tac tells Teal’c that even without Apophis, the Free Jaffa movement has faltered. Aboard Hathor’s ship, Hathor decides O’Neill will become a Goa’uld host, and Daniel and Carter are powerless to do anything but watch. Moments after the symbiote burrows into the Colonel’s neck, SG teams arrive on the ship and begin taking out Hathor’s mixed force of Serpent and Horus guards. Hathor leaves to personally take command of her guards, and one of O’Neill’s caotirs reveals herself to be a Tok’ra operative – and promptly subjects him to the cryogenic freezing process again, claiming it will prevent the symbiote from integrating itself into his consciousness. But O’Neill is on his own – when Colonel Makepeace loses contact with his men at the planetside stargate, he orders Carter and Daniel to join his team and leave O’Neill behind. On the planet, they find themselves overwhelmed by Goa’uld forces. When General Hammond is able to briefly make contact with the team before the MALP relaying his transmission is destroyed, he discovers his people are in trouble – but when he tries to follow Teal’c to Chu’lak to ask for help from the Free Jaffa, he finds that Teal’c is struggling to keep the resistance alive, let alone organized as a fighting force.
