02.02 Episode 24 (#8902)
Airdate: July 3, 1998

The planet Nasya is under Goa'uld attack, and SG-1 is on a rescue mission. During the rescue, Carter's body is taken over by a Goa'uld symbiote, and when the team realizes what has happened, Carter is confined to a cell while O'Neill must bargain for Carter's life. The Goa'uld is Jolinar of Malkshur, one of the Tok'ra, a resistance group opposed to the System Lords. But Jolinar is also the target of the Ashrak, a skilled Goa'uld assassin. The Ashrak nearly succeeds in his mission, and Jolinar, too weak to heal itself, gives up its life to save Carter's.
