Airdate: July 21, 2000

Shan'auc, a Jaffa priestess of Chulak, is sent to the SGC on behalf of Bra'tac. She brings important news, and explains that she believes she has found a way to communicate with her symbiote. In a deep state of kelno'reem, she and her symbiote have shared images and feelings, and she is convinced that she has turned it against the evil ways of the Goa'uld. Her symbiote is willing to share all its knowledge with the Tok'ra, and Shan'auc has come seeking the SGC's help to find a willing Tok'ra host.

Teal'c is skeptical of Shan'auc's claims. However, Shan'auc is an old acquaintance, someone he has known for many years on Chulak, and the two of them still share an affection for one another. Teal'c attempts to test her theory by entering a deep state of kelno'reem, and he, too, shares primitive images with his own symbiote, images of evil and the death of his own father at the hands of Cronus. Convinced that Shan'auc may indeed have found a new way to defeat the Goa'uld, Teal'c promises his support.

The Tok'ra agree to help Shan'auc, and a willing host is found for her symbiote. The transference takes place, and the symbiote, Tanith, pledges his allegiance to the Tok'ra. However, once Tanith has taken a host, his deception becomes clear. Shan'auc is found murdered at Tanith's hands, and Teal'c vows revenge. Returning to Vorash to confront Tanith, SG-1 demands justice, but the Tok'ra have a different solution. They see the value in protecting Tanith, and using him instead as an unwitting counterspy.
