Bra'tac is brought back to help regain Teal'c mind. He conducts a Jaffa process called "The Rite of Masuraan", which literally means bringing a Jaffa warrior to the Threshold of Death and let him choose the path from there. Teal'c is made to re-live several episodes from his past and we follow his journey to the point where he becomes Apophis's First Prime and re-live the moment where he realises that maybe Apophis isn't a god.

I mean, that would make you the most ineffective double agent in the history of double agency!|

O'Neill: He talked about a fabric. Briefly.
Daniel: He just called me a woman...
O'Neill: So I think it's working
