A summit to attempt to reorganize the Free Jaffa Nation is sabotaged by a series of explosions. Many are killed, and Teal’c and Bra’tac are seriously injured. When Teal’c recovers, he learns that a Jaffa named Arkad is suspected of being behind the bombings. Arkad wants the Jaffa to follow Origin, and he has been building a base of support. Teal’c and Bra’tac have history with Arkad – they fought several battles against him when they served Apophis. So Teal’c has no patience when Gen. Landry says he wants to wait for confirmation before pursuing Arkad. He leaves the SGC and begins to pursue Arkad on his own. To complicate matters further, SGC intelligence indicates that many Ori-following Jaffa are planning an attack against Earth, and that Arkad is behind the plot. But the Jaffa says that while the former is true, the latter is not, and he offers his help to stop the plot. The IOA wants to learn more, so they agree that no action should be taken against Arkad – and SG-1 must prevent Teal’c from taking actions that will be attributed to Earth.
