Storyline

Teal'c and Bra'tac are among the numerous victims -though only wounded- of several bomb attacks killing 32 men at a summit in the Jaffa settlement Dar Eshkalon. As soon as physically able, he swears to avenge them personally, suspecting the honor-less, ambitious warrior Arkad; General Landry refuses to sanction a killing mission without solid proof, but cannot stop Teal'c going it alone. Bra'tac explains to Daniel Arkad's sinister past, probably even murdering Teal'c mother. Information from resistance on another planet indicates Arkad is in league with the Ori and plan to attack Earth. Arkad comes meet General Landry, offering to help defend Earth against the Ori, denying any part in the bombings, while defending Origin, incriminating a Jaffa sect. SG-1 is now ordered to find and stop at all cost Teal'c, who is using torture. But Teal'c, committed to killing Arkad, reaches his place, but is wounded, captured, and made to duel Arkad after it is confirmed he had killed Teal'c's parents. Written by KGF Vissers

A rogue Teal'c proves a problem for the SG-1 team
21 February 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

An impressive episode, "Talion" hits the ground running from its opening sequence featuring a badly injured Teal'c and his good friend Bra'tac. When Teal'c goes solo to take down the evil Arkad, SG-1 realise they must stop him before he puts the future of the earth at risk.

The episode stars Craig Fairbrass as Arkad. Fairbrass has always been an actor that I've found annoying, but I think that's the intention as he's always seems to end up being cast as a baddie. This may have something to do with him being English - in Hollywood, being English is almost a sure sign of being picked as an evil bad guy...unless you're Hugh Grant.

I digress. "Talion" also contains a re-appearance from the delightful Lexa Doig as Dr. Carolyn Lam. I've been an admirer of Doig since her role in the short-lived series "CI5: The New Professionals" and it's always good to see her on the screen.

A gripping episode and one that Teal'c fans will rate as unmissable.

8 out of 10.
