Airdate: February 27, 2004

A Los Angeles warehouse is the scene of a horrific massacre. Agent Barrett explains to Carter, Daniel, and Teal'c that the site had been used for research by a rogue NID sleeper cell, but now 32 are dead, a singularly smug and uncooperative scientist named Keffler is the only survivor, and the murderer is in custody, a fragile young woman in a glass cage. The warehouse contains a lab with human-like fetuses, and a room full of artifacts belonging to the Goa'uld Sekhmet. An ornamental ark, in particular, holds a frightening discovery, a bomb set to go off in a matter of hours.

Daniel speaks to the shy young woman, named Anna. She insists she is innocent, but has no memory of the murders. She adds that Keffler is the one who made her, and the frightening drawings she has made reflect the nightmarish images of her dreams. The team learns that Anna is in fact an experiment, a human-Goa'uld hybrid intended as a conduit to the secrets of the Goa'uld, but instead she has developed a second personality, that of Sekhmet herself. As Teal'c and Dr. Lee desperately try to disarm the Goa'uld bomb, Daniel hopes that Anna's Goa'uld memories will hold the key.

Daniel discovers a small remote device which Keffler had used to force Sekhmet to emerge, and which could also kill her. With it, Keffler had used Anna to orchestrate the murders, and now she will soon die a horrible death as her DNA is rewritten. Daniel finds the deactivation code for the bomb among Anna's drawings, but Sekhmet emerges and sets fire to her cell in order to escape. Seizing a gun and the remote device, Sekhmet confronts Keffler, but it is Anna who pulls the trigger, killing him, then uses the remote to take her own life and spare the world from the evil that had created her.
