Responding to a help cry from Kasuf, SG-1 and more USAF wipe out a Goa'uld Jaffa guard to save most Abydonian slaves. When Amaunet turns her hand device on Daniel, he can't bring himself to shoot his beloved wife Sha're, but Tel'c saves him by fatally staff-shooting her; Abydononian funeral tradition squashes his hope of a sarcophagus resurrection. Crushed by grief, Daniel has apparitions by Sha're and once released from hospital resigns from SGC, claiming the quest for his wife was his reason to join; his former research assistant Dr. Robert Rothman succeeds him in SG-1; Jack is sure he'll be back. Sha're (or Ammaunet's posthumous manual spell?) keeps appearing to Daniel life-like, telling him to forgive Teal'c and together find their boy, who as Harsisis has all the Goa'uld knowledge in his genetic memory, punishable by death. Daniel agrees to return, but has his secret agenda too... Written by KGF Vissers

After speaking with Carter near the Stargate, Daniel leaves the room, opening the door with an access card. As he had resigned, he is no longer a member of the SGC, and would no longer be able to use his card, even if he still had it. See more »


Jack O'Neill: We both know you can't stay away.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Then I guess we're both wrong, 'cause I'm gone.
Jack O'Neill: Give it a week. You'll miss me.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Yes, all the salty, bad-tempered insults, all the illogical arguments...

Maybe the Worst Episode so far
18 January 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The SG-1 and the SG-3 travel to a planet to rescue a group of Abydonian slaves including Kasuf. They are attacked by a Jaffa army while Daniel tries to rescue his son from Sha're in a tent. But she attacks him with a powerful weapon in her arm and Teal'c saves him shooting Sha're. When Daniel wakes up in the SGC infirmary, her learns that Sha're is dead and he blames Teal'c for her death. Then Daniel sleep and when he wakes up, he sees Sha're talking to him in the infirmary. What is happening to Daniel?

"Forever in a Day" is a complete mess and maybe the worst episode so far of "Stargate SG-1". The situation of Daniel Jackson living the same day many times with different alternatives is totally boring. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Forever in a Day"
