SG-1 returns from a mission without Daniel, and O’Neill reports to General Hammond that Daniel died as the team tried to escape the volatile volcanic planet they were exploring. Dr. Fraiser, concerned about the mental state of the survivors, asks General Hammond to remove SG-1 from active duty for a week, during which they attend Daniel’s funeral service and begin to go through his personal effects (since national security concerns prevent anyone else from doing so). But O’Neill, Carter and Teal’c all begin to experience visions of Daniel’s death, usually triggered by the sight of liquid – which conflicts with their memories of Daniel perishing in fire. Daniel awakens in an underwater complex where an alien creature is keeping him alive – and keeping him hostage. Daniel’s captor demands all of Daniel’s knowledge regarding ancient Babylon – and unless he surrenders that information, Daniel will never return to the surface again.
