Concerned about a planet who trust Vala, Mitchell takes SG1 to one of Vala's previous homeworlds, to discover that she used the peoples belief that the Goa'ulds are gods and a device to make them follow her, and serve her as her god, even when the Tok'ra had removed the Symbiote. When the people discover the truth, they imprison her, and things are made worse when a Prior of the Ori visit the planet and command that the people believe in the Ori or suffer the consequences. However, soon after Daniel tries to get the Ori to leave, the people mysteriously start to become sick, and Vala is the only one that can save them.
