EXT—ENTRANCE TO CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN
(voiceover)Doctor Jackson, I understand you've come up with some new theory about the Stargate.
[Hammond and SG-1 are sitting at the briefing table with two SFs standing guard, each on opposite sides of the room.]
Ah, yes, sir. Okay. Uhh…if you study myths worldwide, it looks as if there were two different kinds of star gods. Um. The tyrants who treated their subjects like cattle, demanded absolute obedience, utilized their technology to punish and control.
As in the Goa'uld.
(nods)And the culture bearers who used knowledge and technology to benefit humans.
So you're saying that the Goa'ulds weren't the only aliens to visit Earth in the past. Well, how does that affect us today?
We don't think the Goa'uld built the Stargate system. Being parasitic by nature, they just used it to become a dominant race in the galaxy. But some of the good gods, who liked humans, might have used it too, and they could still be out there.
Any indication of who they are?
Yes, sir. The Vikings.Now in Norse mythology the gods were powerful warriors. Legend tells us that the god Thor was a friend to humans and protected them from the Etins, being of great power and knowledge who were enemies of mankind. He used a weapon called Thor's Hammer. Now when Thor hurled the hammer, uh, it supposedly produced thunder and—and lightning. Now that could indicate some sort of, uh, advanced type of energy weapon.
(taps button on laptop to bring up pictures of Norse mythology)
Sir, I think what Daniel's trying to say is, if there is another bunch of aliens out there who are hostile to the Goa'uld and have equal or superior firepower, we outta look them up.
They could become allies.
I have seen the Hammer sign before. It is the symbol of a world called Cimmeria. All Jaffa are taught the sequence of Stargate symbols to that world.
Why is that, Teal'c?
To ensure that no Goa'uld goes there. It is forbidden. Something transpired on Cimmeria that no Goa'uld will speak of.
Well, I like the sound of that.
So do I, Colonel. All right, you have a go.
[A MALP is going up the ramp. Hammond enters carrying a box.]
Colonel, we'd like you to take this along with you. It's a gift.
[The box is dark brown and about 9 in. x 9 in. x 3 in. in size. On the background of the lid is the Stargate symbol for Earth. In the foreground, from left to right, is a man, a boy, a girl and a woman.]
Gee sir, I don't know what to say…
For the alien friendlies, in the event you succeed in your mission and make contact.
[Daniel comes over from beside the ramp where he was finishing gearing up.]
Oh, you had it made. It's great.
[Daniel takes box from O'Neill and looks at it, smiling.]
Oh, we asked the Sagan Institute to imagine a sort of…greeting from Earth, if they could somehow hypothetically get it to a distant world. Uh, it's all about who we are. It explains various Earth cultures, religions, the histories.
(over speakers)Chevron one encoding.
[Daniel goes up the ramp to place the box on the MALP. Hammond exits the Gate room.]
(over speakers)Chevron two encoded.
Time to go to work.
[Camera looks from base to top of the back of Thor's Hammer, then over the top to see the Stargate and DHD below. The Hammer has Celtic-like designs carved in raised relief on the front and back. Several men with a cart are to the right of the Stargate. Stargate activates, and everyone turns to look. As the wormhole boils out, the men shield their faces with their arms and one man runs off. SG-1 tumbles out, the men laughing at them.]
Daniel, you're on.
[Men chant 'Thor! Thor! Thor!' and look at the top of Hammer. The Hammer makes a humming noise.]
It sounds like it's building up some kind of charge.
All right Daniel, dial home, we're going back. Now.
Just do it. That's an order.
[Men are still chanting 'Thor!' A blue beam comes from the top of the Hammer as Daniel begins dialing—the beam scans him then moves on to Carter, O'Neill, then Teal'c, focusing on his abdomen. Teal'c puts a hand on his stomach in pain.]
Teal'c! Get outta there!
[Teal'c yells in pain as the beam increases in intensity. O'Neill runs to push Teal'c out of the beam. Just as O'Neill connects with Teal'c, both vanish. The beam shuts off and natives run, leaving the cart behind. Carter moves to where O'Neill and Teal'c vanished from and looks at the Hammer again. Carter and Daniel look bewildered.]
(looking at Hammer)I—I…I think they're dead.
I think that this is Thor's Hammer.
(steps back two paces)
I don't want to hear that. You said Thor liked humans, that he used his weapon to protect them. We go back, we bring another SG team through, and we start a search.
[A woman (Gairwyn) on horseback followed by a group of men, all running, come from the distance behind and to the left of the Stargate. The woman stops in front of Carter and Daniel.]
You're a little short for gods.
[Carter and Daniel are startled.]
(dismounts)But you came through the portal unharmed, so you must be from Thrudvang, Thor's home in the stars. Hail and welcome.
Actually, we're not uh—This is Daniel Jackson.
(puts hand on chest)
I'm Captain Samantha Carter.
(gestures at Daniel)
My name is Gairwyn. I'm mistress here, my husband is gone a-Viking.
(nods)Um, trading, fighting.
That was in the old days. Nowadays they go to the towns to look for work. It's been a hard season for farmers. Water from the mountains is scarce, but you're welcome at my table.
Yeah, thanks, but we have a very serious problem. Two of the men who came through the portal with us—they're gone.
Yes. I heard there were two Etins in your company.
Goa'ulds? You think that Teal'c and Jack are Goa'ulds?
You tricked them here to be rid of them, yes?
No! No, they're friends, and if they're alive we need to find them.
(amazed)You're humans, like us.
Yes. You and I may even have some of the same ancestors. We came here from a different world. From Earth.
Then we are your brothers and sisters. Midgard is the ancient home. Thor brought our people here andmade this to keep us safe.
(looks and gestures at Hammer)
[Carter and Daniel look back at the Hammer.]
(pointing up at Hammer)D'you, do you know how this works? Are they dead?
That's a magic beyond our ken. It's said that Thor will come back one day and teach us when we are older.
Gairwyn, would Thor kill a human being in order to kill an Etin?
(emphatic)Never. Our gods are great and powerful warriors, but they are just and true to their word.
So they may be alive?
Is there anyone who might know where they are?
Only one. We call her Kendra. Ten seasons ago she walked through the portal and was taken.
That winter some hunters found her wandering half frozen in the mountains.
CARTERMaybe the beam transported them somewhere else on the planet.
(to Gairwyn)Do you know where we can find this—this Kendra?
She lives by herself. I take her things now and then. We can't spare the horses, but I can take you there on foot.
(looks at Carter then nods to Gairwyn)Absolutely, please.
(points to where she and the men came from)This way.
[Gairwyn raises her arm in goodbye to the crowd of men behind the Stargate. Carter, Daniel, and Gairwyn walk between the Hammer and DHD off screen.]
[The cave is dimly lit with candles with water dripping from the roof. O'Neill and Teal'c are lying on the ground next to the wall, unconscious. O'Neill starts awake and sits straight up, grabbing his weapon. He gets to his knees, surveying the cave.]
[Teal'c wakes and gets quickly to his knees, hand on his abdomen. He rips open his shirt and the symbiote comes halfway out of the pouch and screeches.]
Uh, is Junior okay?
Yes…But the beam caused the Goa'uld I carry great pain.
I'm—sorry to hear that.
[There is a bluish light in the distance. O'Neill turns to look at the source.]
[Teal'c looks at O'Neill and O'Neill points behind the camera. Both get swiftly to their feet, weapons ready. The camera switches to a very tall man with long brown hair and beard, black jerkin, helmet, cloak, and silver arm guards, who is holding a golden hammer. Thor shakes his head slightly. Camera looks at O'Neill and Teal'c over Thor's shoulder.]
I am Thor, Supreme Commander of the Asgard Fleet. The High Council of the Asgard has designated Cimmeria a safe world for developing sentient species by unanimous decree, Era 40.73.29. The Goa'uld System Lords were so informed.
Ah, we're not Goa'ulds.He carries one around in him, but he doesn't have much choice in the matter.
(points at Teal'c)
You were warned not to come here. Under pain of death.
Look, I'm Colonel Jack O'Neill from Earth. I happen to know you spent some time there in our past.
For crimes against the living host and all those you have murdered and enslaved, the sentence is death.
(taking several slow steps forward)Look, um…We…came here to…see you.
[O'Neill runs his gun through Thor, disrupting the image.]
This is your prison. Your technology will not function.
[O'Neill runs his hand back and forth through the image, disrupting it again.]
There are no luxuries, no worshippers, no slaves to do your bidding…
Teal'c, I think we just got the answering machine.
…only basic sustenance. And time.
Yeah, well great, thanks—thanks for the chat.
We should hear the remainder of the message.
When you tire of this existence, go to the Hall of Mjollnir and face the Hammer.There is no escape. Only the host can leave this place. Alive.
(Thor holds out Hammer in right hand)
[Recording shuts off, image disappears.]
So it would seem. If I attempt to leave this place, the Goa'uld I carry will be destroyed.
By a hammer?
You must leave without me. If I stay, I will remain safe.
Just relax, Teal'c. I'm not goin' anywhere. Lets just find this…Hall of Mohair or whatever it's called.
[O'Neill and Teal'c go to explore the cave.]
[Gairwyn, Carter and Daniel are walking through a very rocky area, at the bottom of a steep slope. They come upon a small cottage and lean-to style shed at the base of a grey cliff. There is a small fire between the cottage and shed. Kendra and a blond boy are sitting just outside the shed. Kendra pulls out a small round piece of Goa'uld technology that she places on her hand.]
[Daniel reaches for his sidearm, and Carter brings her weapon up.]
[Kendra looks over to them.]
It's all right.
[Kendra activates the device over the boy's forehead and brings it down to his right wrist.]
Rune light flow in might and rain, knit the bones and take the pain.Now, the next time you want to fight, choose a boy your own size.
(takes strip of cloth wrapped around wrist off)
[The boy runs off. Gairwyn, Carter and Daniel go over to Kendra.]
Gairwyn, my friend. Hail and welcome.
This is Carter and Daniel.
They came from the portal, from Midgard, the first home. They need your help.
What did you just do to that boy?
He had a broken wrist. I healed it.
Then why did he run away?
Because of this.</blockquote]
[She turns and shows Carter and Daniel scar on back of neck. Carter and Daniel jump back a step and ready their weapons.]KENDRA
(turning to face Carter and Daniel)It is the mark of what I used to be.
When a Goa'uld takes over a human host, it's permanent.KENDRA
Not here. Thor's Hammer drove it from my body and restored me to my true self.DANIEL
The "it"? Meaning the parasite that was inside of you?KENDRA
Thor's Hammer, the stone by the Gate?KENDRA
No, the Hammer is deep undergroundinside the mountain.
(gestures behind them to the cliff)
As long as I have known her, Kendra has harmed no one.DANIEL
My wife, Sha're, is now as you once were. She has been taken by a Goa'uld and—If what you're saying is true—KENDRA
Then help us.CARTER
Help us to find our friends.
[O'Neill and Teal'c come around a corner into a passage lined with a row of braces running from the floor, up the side, across the top, and down the other side to the floor.]TEAL'C
You should not have attempted to rescue me from the beam. If you had not done so, you would not be here now.O'NEILL
Ah, you'd have done the same for me. Of course you're not going to find me walking around with one of those Goa'uld larva in my gut, but hey.
[They come out of the passage into a more open area with a small pool. They find several bones between a few large rocks at the far edge of the pool. O'Neill sits on one of the rocks and Teal'c squats beside the bones. They each pick one up.]O'NEILL
These Goa'uld died with their human hosts. The marks on these bones—they are from a cutting instrument. But not metal.O'NEILL
I believe they were made by large powerful teeth. These bodies did not die of natural causes. They were killed, and then eaten.O'NEILL
It's obvious some wild animal found its way in. There's got to be a way out. We find it. We're gone.
[O'Neill gets up and walks back the way they came, patting Teal'c on the shoulder as he passes. Teal'c gets up to follow. After they leave, a large claw comes out of the pool of water.]
[Kendra walks between the shed and fire carrying a jug over to Gairwyn, Carter and Daniel who are sitting at a table with bench seats.]KENDRA
(pouring drink)It is the place where the Goa'uld was destroyed.
I call it the Labyrinth.
(hands drinking horn to Daniel)
[She pours for Carter, who sniffs the drink.]DANIEL
How is it done? Did you feel it?
[Kendra pours a drink for Gairwyn.]KENDRA
And was it painful?
It was nothing like the suffering I—watched myself inflict on others.…For all those years…So many. Your human friend, O'Neill…he can walk out unharmed. All you need do is wait.CARTER
Teal'c is our friend too. He is Jaffa, not Goa'uld.KENDRA
Jaffa? A friend? They are as guilty as those they serve.CARTER
This Jaffa gave up his rank, left his home so he could join us and fight the Goa'uld. His dream is to see his people free.DANIEL
But if the Goa'uld larva within him is removed, he will die. See, once a Jaffa caries a—a larva it—it acts as his immune system.KENDRA
I know all I want to know of Jaffa.DANIEL
If the Hammer drives the Goa'uld from him and he dies, so be it. It is his penance for serving the Goa'uld.DANIEL
Teal'c was in the service of Apophis, but…He saved our lives and he helped us escape, he is one of us now.
[Kendra moves to stand in front of the fire. The wind suddenly blows hard.]KENDRA
(to wind, petulant)The Valkyrie ride the wind. They want me to help you. They say you speak the truth. They tell me…that I must take you there.
Did I ask your counsel?
(turns to Carter and Daniel)
[Carter looks to Daniel, who waves his arm to stay silent and wait.]GAIRWYN
This is right. Go with Thor, my friend.
I will take you. But first I must consult the runes.
INT—ROOM IN THE MOUNTAIN
[Large room, high ceilinged with lighted lamps hanging from chains. On several walls there are carvings of runes in a circle around pictures. O'Neill and Teal'c enter from the right through a doorway, the top cut like a triangle. They look around.]O'NEILL
Teal'c, take a shot at that lamp with your staff weapon.
[Teal'c attempts to activate the staff weapon, but it won't work.]TEAL'C
It will not function.O'NEILL
Yeah, that's what he said would happen as long as we were in here.
[O'Neill shoots at the lamp. The bullet hits the chain and the lamp falls to floor in shower of sparks, breaking when it hits the ground.]
INT—CAVE BY POOL
[See Unas' hand—Unas raises his head and listens after he hears the gunshot.]TEAL'C
(voiceover)This race may have considered projectile weapons too primitive to be concerned about.
INT—ROOM IN THE MOUNTAINO'NEILL
Yeah, here.(hands sidearm to Teal'c)
[Teal'c takes the sidearm and puts it away. O'Neill sits on a stone bench carved from the wall. Teal'c moves to stand next to him, almost leaning against the wall.]TEAL'C
The message said, "Only the host can leave here alive."O'NEILL
Perhaps this could be of some benefit to the boy who was your friend.O'NEILL
Skaara. Yeah, I thought'a that.TEAL'C
And the wife of Daniel Jackson. Perhaps if they could be brought here, the Goa'uld who took them as hosts could be purged.O'NEILL
[They hear a splash—O'Neill stands and raises his gun.]TEAL'C
What is it, O'Neill?O'NEILL
[Teal'c looks at him, eyebrow raised.]O'NEILL
[Unas is gone.]
[Kendra places a rock between two others to complete a large circle. There are three folded blankets spaced on the ground inside the circle. Kendra is kneeling in the circle holding a staff and looking to the sky.]KENDRA
Mighty Thor, God of Thunder and Lightning, wield your Hammer and protect me.Now you must sit in the circle and wait with me.
(stands and turns to Carter and Daniel)
[She gets up and leaves the circle.]CARTER
A sign from Thor himself.
[Kendra puts the staff in the shed. Daniel steps into the circle.]CARTER
Great, another sign.
[Carter puts her gun on the ground and goes into the circle.]DANIEL
(to Carter, as Carter and Daniel sit on blankets)She's probably afraid to go back there, maybe if we offer her some moral support.
[Kendra comes back and sits on the remaining blanket.]DANIEL
(to Kendra)How much do you remember of your life before?
Much. I was a beautiful child.CARTER
Is that bad?KENDRA
On Jebanna, beauty is a curse.CARTER
I don't understand.DANIEL
Because the Goa'uld want perfect hosts?KENDRA
Marduk discovered our secret and raided the temple where they tried to hide me.CARTER
Because of my training in the temple, the Goa'uld who took possession of my body could not take complete control over my mind. A part of me—myself—remained.DANIEL
Something of the host survives.CARTER
How did you end up here? Teal'c said the Goa'uld made this a forbidden planet ages ago.KENDRA
And so it is. But I knew my beast. She hungered for conquest. So I became the voice within. I taunted her and whispered of rumors that Cimmeria must hold a wealth of riches for one bold enough to take it.DANIEL
You actually influenced the Goa'uld that had taken you over?KENDRA
Yes. She came to Cimmeria. And I hoped only for a quick death…escape. But we were taken into the Labyrinth, a dark and terrifying place. Until Thor's Hammer set me free. And I have honored his ways and his people ever since.
[Thunder. A storm comes over distant hills.]KENDRA
It is a sign from Thor. Now we can go.
INT—ROOM IN THE MOUNTAIN
[Back of O'Neill's hand resting against a wall with water flowing down it.]O'NEILL
Water.Give it enough time, it'll bring down walls. Even walls just like that. So in a couple hundred years, we'll be free.
(takes hand off wall and shakes water off)
[O'Neill walks toward the center of the room and looks over to the entrance. The shadow of the Unas is visible. O'Neill smacks Teal'c on the shoulder to get his attention. Teal'c turns to the door.]O'NEILL
What the hell is that?
Jaffa. I am Unas. The First One.
[Teal'c moves toward Unas.]TEAL'C
You. Do not. Exist.UNAS
Kill the human…O'NEILL
(takes couple of steps forward)Excuse me?
…And we will feast together.TEAL'C
I no longer serve the Goa'uld.UNAS
We shall see.
[Unas approaches O'Neill.]O'NEILL
Hey! Just stay put right there.UNAS
(throws Teal'c aside with one sweep of his arm)Weapons are of no use here.
[O'Neill raises his rifle and shoots Unas several times. Unas staggers back, then moves forward again. O'Neill takes a couple of steps closer and opens fire again. Unas hits the wall and slides down it until he's sitting on the floor. O'Neill goes over to Unas, gun ready. When Unas doesn't move, he cautiously lowers the gun. Teal'c gets up and comes over, sidearm out.]TEAL'C
(kneels next to Unas and feels for pulse)The First One is dead.
Yeah well that's fine by me. C'mon.
[O'Neill leaves. Teal'c kneels next to Unas a few seconds longer, then leaves. Unas' eyes glow yellow/orange.]
[Kendra, Daniel and Carter leave Kendra's home. As time passes, they walk to path at bottom of hill of rocks. More time passes as they walk single-file up a rocky hill at sunset. Kendra points ahead of them.]
[A roar can be heard as O'Neill meets up with Teal'c. Teal'c turns quickly, gun ready.]O'NEILL
What? Teal'c, will you relax? That thing's dead, for cryin' out loud.TEAL'C
I believe I heard a sound.O'NEILL
Well there wouldn't be two of those things in there. Would there?TEAL'C
If there were, they would surely battle to the death.O'NEILL
So what'd you mean when you told that thing it didn't exist?TEAL'C
Unas is believed to have been the first host. Born of the same primordial waters as the Goa'uld. It became a myth; much like your vampyr.O'NEILL
That thing was a Goa'uld?TEAL'C
I thought they preferred human hosts.TEAL'C
There are other species far older that have been used as hosts. Some with immeasurable power and savagery.O'NEILL
Well, I wonder how long it's been trapped down here.TEAL'C
Perhaps a thousand years. Unas can utilize long periods of sleep to survive.O'NEILL
It is dead, right? We don't have to go back there and drive a stake through its chest or anything?TEAL'C
The old stories say Unas had great regenerative powers. But those are tales told to frighten children. It is a myth.O'NEILL
It was dead.O'NEILL
[O'Neill walks down the tunnel.]TEAL'C
[Teal'c starts walking, and O'Neill stops and turns.]O'NEILL
[O'Neill starts walking again when Teal'c is next to him.]TEAL'C
I am certain.O'NEILL
Just a myth?TEAL'C
[Looking up rock hill. Kendra comes up opposite side and kneels on top. Carter and Daniel come up on either side.]DANIEL
We're not lost...are we?
It was long ago. Everything was covered in snow. It all looks different now.
[Carter walks off in disgust.]DANIEL
Kendra—It's all right, just…take your time. Kendra…when the Goa'uld was destroyed within you—what did it feel like, exactly?KENDRA
I have to know if there's any hope.KENDRA
It was very painful, like…needles stabbing inside the head. The beast will do anything to stay in control. It's a battle of wills. Many give up.DANIEL
Well Sha're wasn't trained in a temple like you, but she had a spirit, she was, she was a fighter.KENDRA
You loved her very much.DANIEL
I still do. I dream about her. It's as if…some part of her is reaching out to me, or maybe that's just wishful thinking. I...KENDRA
No. You still are connected. If you find her, and bring her here, I believe there is hope.DANIEL
I'm sure now.This is the way.
[They walk off to the left.]
[O'Neill and Teal'c walk out of a tunnel and stop. O'Neill looks around with his flashlight. They continue up another tunnel. Back in the room with the hanging lamps, Unas pulls a bullet out and looks at it. Unas roars. O'Neill and Teal's stop and look back.]O'NEILL
Okay. That's no myth.
[Unas continues roaring.]
[Kendra, Carter and Daniel are walking on raised walkways between the channels of the aqueduct.]KENDRA
Gairwyn told me Thor built this centuries ago. It brings the water from the mountainsto his people in the towns.
(points back the way they came)
Thor is generous.KENDRA
Yes. This means we are close.
[Kendra walks ahead.]CARTER
Daniel. She said that hours ago. Now either she's lost and doesn't want to admit it, or—DANIEL
I don't think that she would mislead us.CARTER
Maybe it's not on purpose, maybe it's not even conscious!
[Daniel jumps over a channel to stand in front of Carter and they stop.]CARTER
What she suffered on her world and while being a Goa'uld will translate anywhere as incredible abuse.DANIEL
Doesn't the fact that she interpreted those gusts of wind and thunder as signs mean something?CARTER
Part of her wants to face it all again and another part clearly doesn't, and it looks like the part that doesn't is winning. We're wasting valuable time here.DANIEL
Okay. Gairwyn said that hunters found her. Well hunters don't necessarily travel in a straight line. They follow game. They would not risk hunger just to get her back a day sooner.CARTER
Daniel, your belief that Kendra can somehow help bring Sha're back to you, it doesn't make it true.
[Daniel walks off.]CARTER
(calls after him)And it certainly doesn't make her reliable!
(turns back to Carter)Haven't you ever had a feeling that made absolutely no logical sense, and it turned out to be right?
(shouting from a distance)This way!
[Daniel jumps over to middle walkway, the one Kendra was on. Carter and Daniel jog to catch up.]
[O'Neill and Teal'c round a corner, flashlights on.]O'NEILL
You sure we didn't come this way before?TEAL'C
We have not.O'NEILL
It looks awfully familiar.
[Unas appears at other end of tunnel and moves towards them.]UNAS
Your weapons cannot kill me! I know the secrets of the Labyrinth. I could help you escape.O'NEILL
A map would be nice.
[O'Neill and Teal'c open fire. Unas, wounded again, staggers back into another tunnel.]O'NEILL
[O'Neill and Teal'c go back the way they came. Unas gets up and follows them.]
[Dirt hill strewn with pieces of wood.]KENDRA
(pointing up hill)There.
[They go up the hill and look at a carving affixed to a rock wall. It looks just like the top of the Hammer in front of the Gate.]DANIEL
(points up)The Hammer.
[The Hammer is above the cave entrance.]KENDRA
Yes, this is where I came out.CARTER
Okay, good. What do you remember about the Labyrinth?
[Carter moves toward the entrance.]KENDRA
It's difficult, my beast wandered forward and back many times. I do remember the place of entrance where Thor speaks to the Goa'ulds.DANIEL
Thor is inside?!KENDRA
He seems to be. But he speaks the same message again and again. My beast believed he was not real. There were long tunnels, leading from one room to another. And…something else in there, something…alive.DANIEL
I don't know.
[Carter and Daniel exchange a look.]DANIEL
Look, you don't have to go any further if you don't want to, okay?
[Kendra nods. It thunders.]KENDRA
Thor asks that I try.
INT—HALL OF MJOLLNIR
[Large open room lit by candles in bowls hanging from the ceiling by chains. There is a carving (snakes?) above the doorway. Teal'c and O'Neill enter. At the other end is a doorway shaped like the Hammer. O'Neill goes through. Teal'c looks at the doorway. O'Neill comes to a carved door in the chamber beyond that swings open as he approaches. He looks out around the door.]O'NEILL
Yeah. This is it! We're outta here, let's go.
[Teal'c steps into the hammer doorway and is trapped in a beam of red light. The carved door shuts. Teal'c yells in pain.]O'NEILL
Teal'c, get outta there!
[Teal'c can't move so O'Neill tackles him, knocking him back through the doorway. The Hammer shuts off.]TEAL'C
Thank you, O'Neill.O'NEILL
[There is a growl. We see Unas' shadow through the entrance to Hall of Mjollnir.]TEAL'C
If I am to die, it will be as a warrior, facing my enemy.
[O'Neill takes the magazine out of his gun and looks inside before replacing it.]O'NEILL
Last mag. Hell. Why not?
It's okay, stay here.
[Carter and Daniel getting ready to go in—making sure weapons loaded, tightening chin straps on helmets.]DANIEL
You've done enough, really.KENDRA
In the temple we were taught that fear is the greatest enemy. I must face my fear.
[Carter nods, Daniel looks back at Carter. Looking out from cave as Carter, then Kendra, then Daniel enter.]
INT—HALL OF MJOLLNIR
[Unas steps into the doorway.]TEAL'C
Are you considering the same tactic as I?O'NEILL
Teal'c, the cliché is "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?" And the answer's yes.UNAS
Human. You can save yourself. Why do you stay?Jaffa, why do you ally yourself with a slave? Once, the Goa'uld were all as Unas. We were few—but we ruled millions! We fed upon the weak to keep ourselves strong. I will take pleasure in killing and devouring you both!
(Unas enters Hall)
[Unas roars as he attacks. He throws O'Neill against the wall with one blow. Teal'c grapples with him, and when Unas is in front of the Hammer they both open fire.]
INT—JUST OUTSIDE CARVED DOORDANIEL
They're in trouble.KENDRA
It's still alive.
INT—HALL OF MJOLLNIR
[O'Neill and Teal'c still firing. Unas right in front of the Hammer. He holds his arms out so he doesn't stagger backwards into it.]
INT—JUST OUTSIDE CARVED DOORCARTER
We're so close!Feel around the door, see if there's a trigger somewhere.
(Daniel hits wall with shoulder)
INT—HALL OF MJOLLNIR
[O'Neill and Teal'c shoot more. Unas sinks down, groaning.]
INT—JUST OUTSIDE CARVED DOORKENDRA
There's one more thing I can try. I learned this from the songs of Thor's people.Carve the rune flow, read the might, see the rainbow, test the wight!
(moves farther down wall and places hands on wall, right hand in an outline of a hand)
[The door opens. Wall and door are covered in hand outlines.]
INT—HALL OF MJOLLNIR
[Unas gets up and lurches forward. Teal'c rushes at him and pushes him into the Hammer. Unas chokes Teal'c—Teal'c is trapped in the beam too. Unas is roaring.]O'NEILL
There is no other way.
[Unas roaring in anger and pain. Carter, Daniel and Kendra are in the outer room and watching. O'Neill yanks Teal'c out of the beam. Unas is in the beam a few moments longer, then falls into the Hall as the Hammer shuts off. Teal'c kneels next to Unas and places a hand on his neck. Carter, Daniel and Kendra enter the Hall.]TEAL'C
Without the healing power of the Goa'uld, this body will no longer regenerate. There is too much damage.KENDRA
Now I see why they call you friend.CARTER
(to O'Neill)This is Kendra. She brought us here.
(to O'Neill)She had firsthand knowledge; she was a Goa'uld.
[O'Neill and Teal'c look at Kendra.]DANIEL
(gesturing to Hammer)The Hammer works. Do you know what this means?
It's the only way out of here, Daniel.DANIEL
But what this thing can do for Sha're and Skaara…O'NEILL
Teal'c's here now.TEAL'C
And here I will remain. I was with those who took the ones you love.O'NEILL
No. You're part of this family now. We're not leaving you behind.
[O'Neill picks up the staff weapon and hands it to Daniel.]O'NEILL
This thing won't work in here. Try it from out there.
[O'Neill hands Daniel the staff weapon. Daniel walks into the outer chamber. He raises the staff and pauses.]O'NEILL
[Daniel activates the staff weapon and fires at the top of the Hammer. Blue lightning ricochets around it. Daniel lowers the staff weapon slowly, sad, maybe a bit regretful.]CARTER
Did it work?O'NEILL
There's one way to find out.
[O'Neill gestures for Teal'c to go ahead. Teal'c pauses right before stepping through Hammer. He walks slowly through then turns to look back at it. He moves to stand beside Daniel.]TEAL'C
Thank you, Daniel Jackson.
[Daniel gives the staff weapon to Teal'c.]DANIEL
Well at least we know it can be done, right?
[O'Neill and Kendra walk around the Hammer.]KENDRA
Now that the Hammer is lost, I'm not sure what we'll do.O'NEILL
Ah, you should be all right. The Goa'uld don't know the Hammer was destroyed.
[Everyone is standing next to the Hammer.]CARTER
Seal up the cave. If they come back at least they'll be put somewhere safe.KENDRA
I want to thank you for helping me have the courage to face my greatest fears.
[She opens a pouch and takes out a rune stone.]KENDRA
This is…to remember our world.
[She gives the stone to Daniel.]DANIEL
We will never forget.CARTER
And we'd like to come back.DANIEL
Oh!Here. It's a gift. Actually it's for Thor, or his people in case they ever come back. It's all about our people, who we are, that we would like to be friends.
(running to the MALP)
I almost forgot.
(retrieves Sagan box and hands to Kendra)
[It thunders. They all look up.]KENDRA
Thor is pleased.O'NEILL
That's great. Tell him we'd love to meet him someday. In person.KENDRA
(nods)It is safe for you to travel, you should go now.
Daniel, you want to start dialing home. Before it starts raining?DANIEL
[Daniel goes to the DHD, O'Neill and Carter following, and starts dialing. Kendra and Teal'c look at each other for a moment. Kendra is smiling. They nod to each other. Teal'c goes to join the rest of SG-1 by the DHD. We watch SG-1 enter the wormhole from a distance on a slight hill. Several men are scattered about, watching.]
