Bra’tac emerges through the SGC’s stargate with a wounded Jaffa, and bearing news that Apophis is still alive and fighting. An entire Jaffa world has been razed to the ground as Apophis searches for his child by Sha’re, a child which Daniel has pledged to find for much more benevolent reasons. Bra’tac admits that he may be growing too tired to single-handedly lead the Jaffa’s fight for freedom from the Goa’uld, and urges Teal’c to take over for him. But first, their immediate mission involves finding the child before Apophis does, and Bra’tac has a clue that leads them to a world whose name the Goa’uld dare not even speak. The child is there, but Daniel is the first to realize that something else is too – a higher life form that won’t let either side take the baby. But as immensely powerful as it seems to be, is this being enough to stop Apophis’ advancing army?
