      “Crossroads” is another Jaffa oriented episode of Stargate SG1. As I have said previously in other reviews, I am not a big fan of all the Jaffa storylines. Some yes, but there are others I find very boring. This is especially true when Bra’tac is not involved.

      This is one of those episodes. Shan’auc, a high priestess and a long time acquaintance of Teal’c’s, arrives at the SGC. She tells everyone that she has learned how to communicate with her Goa’uld symbiote. Not only communicated with it, but also convinced it that the Goa’uld is evil and that it’s


      own powers of domination is wrong. Sha’nauc feels that her symbiote is ready to take to the Tok’ra so that her symbiote can be implanted in a human host. After this, they will be able to get many Goa’uld secrets.

      At first, Teal’c is sure that Sha’nauc does not know what she is talking about. Everyone at the SGC agrees to go along with Teal’c since he knows more about symbiotes than anyone else. However, while in a deep state of kel-no-reem in which he stops his heart, Teal’c is able to communicate with his own symbiote and believes that Sha’nauc ...


      • is right. SG1 takes her to the Tok’ra and her ready symbiote is transplanted to another host.

        Shau’nac ends up dying and Teal’c later learns that she was murdered. He wants to extract revenge on the Goa’uld but Anise will not let him. She wants to keep Tanneth around and act as if they are buying his act in order to learn as much as they can about the Goa’uld and their secrets. Teal’c finally agrees to go along with the Tok’ra’s plan but they are not happy.

        Is it just me or does anyone else seem to think that the Tok’ra

        are not as nice as they seem to be? Or maybe that is the symbiotes they are carrying are not as nice as they want everyone to think they are. While the Goa’uld are a lot worse, it seems to me that the Tok’ra display a lot of trickery and deceit in order to get what they want and ensure their own lives. However, I guess we could say the same thing about some of the politicians on Earth, huh?

        All in all, I found this episode to be very yawn worthy. It is definitely not one that I watch over and over again.
