avatar2¬†Upon returning to the SGC our Jaffa seems upset and we learn that his son is engaged to one of the female warriors who are rebelling against the system lord Moloc, this seems to be upsetting news as he sees it as a betrayal of the oath the boy took to fight for the freedom of all Jaffa. The situation becomes more complicated when Ishta and her people are forced to move to the SGC as their worlds location is leaked to Moloc and then their secret meeting is ambushed and both Ishta and Teal’c are hunted by the Jaffa.

Sacrifices is written by Christopher Judge and sees the return of Jolene Blalock as Ishta the strong leader of the female warriors who are making a successful stand against Moloc, events are conspiring to force their hand which goes against Teal’c’s belief that there is little to be gained by attempting to over throw Moloc while there are ready made Goa’uld replacements who will simply take over. It gets more complicated when Rya’k falls in love with one of her people and they are engaged, Teal’c sees his son as turning his back on the large fight and by extension disrespects both Ishta and the young woman Kar’yn much to Bra’tac’s annoyance which gets spread around with the exception of Jack who seems to be handling the horses, children and leather clad young women rather well, we even get a Kirk shoulder grab of Sam which was held way too long for comfort if you ask me.

Well if you must.

Well if you must.

We finally get to meet Moloc played by Royston Innes who is the stereotypical system lord maybe even more so since the idea of slaughtering so many females seems counter productive when the size of the Jaffa army can be the deciding factor in a battle and limiting the number of women will impact that figure long term. It’s also tricky in that we can fully understand why Ishta is so eager to bring Moloc down as she is focussing on the immediate deaths and why Teal’s does not see the benefit long term but it’s unlikely any Gou’ald replacement would carry on the sacrificing of young girls especially with the ongoing struggle for dominance on the galactic scale.

Sinister!
