|Directed By:||Peter DeLuise|
|Preceded by:||One False Step|
A young boy comes through the gate, despite the Titanium iris. He tells SG-1 he's come with his mother, a member of the invisible Reetou race. They've come to warn Earth that Reetou rebels, after having their planet destroyed by Goa'uld, want to kill all humans. Their flawed reasoning being, that the Goa'uld need humans for hosts therefore without humans no more Goa'uld. As the boy bonds with Jack he explains that his mother "made" him so he could act as an intermediary between the Reetou and humans. Tragically the boy is dying, and when Jacob (now of the Tok'ra) comes with a Tok'ra device which makes the Reetou visible they discover that some Reetou are already in SGC.
 Mistakes in the Script
- When telling Jack and Teal'c about Charlie's brain, Dr. Fraiser mentions the reaction of Teal'c's symbiote to the presence of the Reetou, however, Teal'c never told Fraiser about it so how did she know...
|Charlie: (panicking when he sees Teal'c) Jaffa!|
O'Neill: (to Teal'c) Get that a lot?
|O'Neill: What do I call you?|
Charlie: I do not have a name.
O'Neill: What does your mother call you?
|Fraiser: As far as I can tell, he's human.|
O'Neill: No bomb in the chest, no little bio-hazard in his tooth?
|O'Neill: Well, here's a question - how do we deal with an invisible threat?|
Carter: We need a way to detect it.
O'Neill: Well, uh . . . that would be helpful . . .
|Carter: Even though we can't see them, these Reetou, they can definitely see us|
Teal'c: Which poses a great strategic disadvantage. I understand why the Gou'ald want to eliminate them
O'Neill: They're Goa'uld, Teal'c - that's their job!
