After the events of Frozen, O'Neill is blended with a symbiote to save his life, however it turns that O'Neill influences it to do something it would never have done, and without the knowledge of O'Neill, he tries to save a girl, however he is shot in the process. Meanwhile, back at SGC, Hammond wants to know where Jack is but the Tok'ra don't know. Thoran the Tok'ra Ambassador tells them that Kanan left and they don't know where he is. Hammond and SG1 insist on getting information on Kanan's mission logs, Thoran not keen on giving the logs to them, is held until the Tok'ra complies. Jack is captured and being tortured by Ba'al, one of the minor System Lords who was doing research on weapons and gravity at a secret base. He keeps torturing Jack trying to get information from him about his symbiote but Jack can't remember so he kills Jack and then revives him in a sarcophagus. Whilst in his cell, Jack is greeted by Daniel who offers him a chance to ascend, however, Jack isn't ready to die, and asks for his help, however, Daniel tells him that he cannot as the others are watching. Meanwhile back at SGC, the other members of SG1 start getting "flashes of inspiration". They figure out Jack must be on the planet with Ba'al as Kanan was there as a minor Goa'uld and got lots of information from Ba'als Lotar, his highest ranking slave. Sam figures that when Kanan merged with Jack Jack's personality rubbed off and Kanan felt guilty leaving the Lotar behind and so they've gone to rescue her. Unfortunately the planet is heavily fortified and Hammond says they don't have enough fire power. Teal'c, during Kel'noreim, thinks of a way to help, let Yu know about the secret base so that he will destroy it, letting him know to blow out the power generators first. Thus giving Jack a fighting chance.
 Mistakes during Filming
In the first scene where O'Neill is seen in the sarcophagus, in the long shot his shirt is untorn (as it should be) but after the shadowy shot of Ba'al, we go in closer and the 2 knife holes from his first torture are clearly seen-which won't happen until the next scene
|O'Neill: (points to head) Though a candle burns in my house, no one's home!|
|O'Neill: Okay...show me your stuff. Bust me outta here|
Daniel: I can't
O'Neill: Why not?
Daniel: I'm not allowed to interfere.
O'Neill: You're interfering right now
Daniel: No, I'm not.
O'Neill: Yes, you are
Daniel: No, I'm not. I am consoling a friend
