SG Character Project - Stargate SG-1 - Jack O’Neill - Key Episodes

Disclaimer: These are just a few of the characters key episodes. Each one was chosen based on my own opinions and feelings. You may disagree with me. That’s fine. I had a hard time narrowing down 200 episodes to just 9. I looked for episodes which showed key features of their personality, key moments in their past that defined them, and moments that led to character development. 

  • Losing Skaara, who was like a second son to him, became the reason he joins the SGC.
  • His family and losing both Sara and Charlie are what ultimately put in on the path he’s on
  • He is a soldier first and foremost and that comes with it’s own challenges
  • His love of children and desire to protect childhood innocence in people
  • His humor
  • Sacrificing himself in order to save others
  • Struggling with he burden of command and finding out how to make it his own.
Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.
