Well, Tony Amendola’s in it, and Richard Dean Anderson starts the episode with a perfectly-delivered “Son of a bitch!” when they learn that their enemy Apophis is still alive, and that’s really all that’s worth remembering about this long, long, boring episode. It introduces Oma Desala, who is effectively “Mother Nature,” the first of the Ancients / Ascended Beings, a race that will often become very, very tedious. Hours of the episode are spent with Daniel and a monk reciting Zen koans at each other with their boots off. Our son got even more restless than everybody waiting outside for Daniel to get finished and put his boots back on.
Besides, everybody knows Mother Nature looks like this. (Source: Reddit.)
