The gate is activated with Bra’tac’s ID code, but the woman who steps into the SGC is obviously not Bra’tac. She is Shau’nac, an old flame of Teal’c, who claims to have developed the ability to separate her consciousness from that of her symbiote and can use that ability to convince the Goa’uld within her that its agenda is evil. Bra’tac has sent Shau’nac to teach this ability to the Tok’ra so that they may use it against the Goa’uld. At first, General Hammond is suspicious, and the Tok’ra scientist Anise is contacted, so that the Tok’ra can assess the situation without revealing their current base of operations. As she awaits the Tok’ra’s decision, Shau’nac shows Teal’c how to communicate with his symbiote – and urges him to leave SG-1 to help her spread this knowledge among all Jaffa.
