      In this episode, it turns out that a Goa’uld parasite got into an Air Force character while they were escaping from Apophis in the previous episode, Children of the Gods. The parasite starts taking control of this character, who’s named Kawalsky. The rest of Stargate Command, including our valiant SG-1

      team, must try to remove the parasite before it does serious damage to Kawalsky or Stargate Command.

      A cool thing about this episode is that it shows the SGC really coming into being, with the formation of more SG teams to combat the aliens. It has some good dramatic moments for Kawalsky,


      • as the SGC doctors wonder if they can remove the parasite without killing him. Kawalsky goes to pieces as he worries about what the parasite could do to him, and whether he’s going to live or not.

        There’s some good character stuff for at least one main character, as well. Teal’c’s

        stony silence when faced with questioning from government agents is a real highlight. His answers to some personal questions are heart-rending, as we learn that he left his family behind, vulnerable to Apophis, when he defected in the pilot episode.

        This is a strong, heavily dramatic episode, and one well worth watching.
