Samantha Carter: Family And Relationships - StargateWiki
Later, SG-1 is tested and they find out that Colonel Jack O'Neill and Major . joined Stargate Command to be closer to Carter, though their romantic relationship. “But what about SG-1?” some of you will (and have) asked. Why didn't you ever confirm the Sam/Jack relationship in SG-1 but found the need. Jack O'Neill and Samantha Carter from Stargate SG-1 are a classic pairing in my mind, but their relationship would probably frustrate those.
Whatever the reason he took up astronomy as a hobby, when Apophis came through the stargate and regenerated the research program, the first person Jack wanted to contact was Daniel. He confessed his deception about Daniel's death to Gen. Hammond and contact was made via a personal gesture that only Jack and Daniel would understand — a box of tissues for Daniel's persistent allergies 1.
Though at the time Jack only bore a grudging respect for the scientist, their experiences in serving together drew them inexorably into a deep, extremely close relationship: Jack sympathized with Daniel's loss of his wife, Sha're, to Apophis, and offered the younger man use of the spare room at Jack's home upon Daniel's return to Earth 1.
When Apophis made Sha're his queen, O'Neill knew Daniel would do anything to get her back, and upon being faced with the choice of saving Teal'c once he reached the end of the labyrinth in Thor's Hammer or keeping the machine intact to save Sha're once she'd been located, Jack understood that only Daniel could destroy the machine and free their Jaffa friend.
This came from an innate knowledge of Daniel's character, and is testament to how well he knew him, even only a few months into their friendship 1. On Ernest Littlefield's planet, Jack could see how much the knowledge available there meant to Daniel, but pressed the scientist to leave it behind and save his life, rather than be left behind, marooned forever on that alien world 1.
Jack was so upset at losing Daniel on Oannes P3X that he was unable to pack up Jackson's apartment when he was believed dead. Jack scolded Carter for reading Daniel's diary aloud, and at a wake given at his home, Jack became so distraught he smashed in Gen.
Hammond's car window with a hockey stick. He also spoke eloquently at the official memorial service for Daniel, describing how privileged he felt to have been able to call the man his friend 1.
During the covert raid on the ha'taks coming to destroy Earth, Daniel was mortally wounded by a staff weapon blast to the chest. At Daniel's insistence, Jack broke his most important rule and left the other man behind to continue the mission to destroy the ships. He touched Daniel tenderly on the face and was obviously distraught to have to leave him 2. Trapped off-world in the prison colony of Hadante, Jack wanted to make sure his team did not become targets of the other prisoners. Having been incarcerated in an Iraqi prison camp previous to that situation, Jack understood the psychology among inmates and consequently did his best to educate the others.
He made Daniel remove his glasses so the other man wouldn't be instantly perceived as having a weakness, thereby protecting him from attack 2.
Initially irritated with Daniel for his stalling in getting the rest of his team freed from slavery in the naquadah mines on P3R, Jack became worried once they returned to base and Daniel's addiction to the sarcophagus became apparent. He kept watch over Daniel, and when Daniel escaped from the bed where he had been strapped down to prevent him harming himself, Jack went after him.
The two men fought violently, and Daniel threatened Jack with the pistol he had taken from a guard, even firing it. Jack talked Daniel out of additional violence, expressed his sympathy for what Daniel was going through, and when Jackson put the weapon down, Jack held him in his arms, offering the comfort and support that reflected how deeply he cared for the other man 2. When there was a question of identity after the Salish "spirits" invaded the base, a moment of inane questions and answers that nobody else would have understood proved to Jack that Daniel was himself and not one of the aliens posing as Jackson.
These two men have an entire language of subtext all their own 2. Following an angry outburst with each other, both men were convinced there was something terribly wrong with them. Fraiser pronounced them in perfect health, it was very upsetting to them both. The men were consequently discovered to be suffering from reactions to inaudible sound waves, emitted by an alien plant 2. Sometimes they even finish each other's sentences, like an old married couple 4. After being invaded by one of Ma'chello's Goa'uld eradicating devices, Daniel was kept in one of the isolation quarters on the base, and Jack spent time with him there, playing chess with his friend and keeping him company 3.
On more than one occasion, Jack and Daniel have acted as co-defense counsel for others. The men support each other in matters of logic and emotion, filling in where the other misses a point, as a perfect foil for each other. As Skaara once declared of them, "O'Neer is strong. Playing the role as circumstances dictated, Jack could not reveal at the time how touched he was by that visit, but made sure it was known once the covert operation was over.
Daniel surprised him with the admission that his visit was by chance, not by personal choice, though this comment may have been made simply to extract a little vengeance for Jack's unkind comments to his team during the mission 3.
As much as Jack hated to be reminded of moral imperatives when technology to fight the Goa'uld was at stake, Daniel's plea to look more closely at what the Eurondans required in trade made a point with Jack.
Only Daniel could have pushed Jack up against that wall of morality, because he was the only member of the team not bound by the military code to follow orders, and because the men's friendship is so deep that Daniel has that freedom. Jack's response was rude initially due to Jack's desperation to acquire that technology, but once Jack understood the truth about the Eurondans, he encouraged Daniel to continue with his role as moral compass of the team — to 'ask questions' 4.
It was Daniel's innocent question about consequences that prompted Jack to have a little fun to relieve his excruciating boredom while trapped in the time loop 4. Though Jack was aware of Daniel's fear of heights, the other man willingly jumped out of an airplane when Jack directed him to do it. This spoke highly of how much trust there was between the two men 4.
Carter to rig a naquadah reactor to explode, in the hopes of stopping a Gadmeer terraforming ship from killing the Enkarans, which the SGC had recently transported to a new world. Not realizing he had given Daniel an imperative to find a different resolution to the problem of competing races needing the same world, Jack was upset when Daniel went back aboard the Gadmeer ship to talk to Lotan, the Enkaran-replicated communication interface created by the Gadmeer.
Jack was forced to activate the reactor, knowing Daniel was aboard the ship and might be killed for his peacemaking efforts 4. After having his memory removed and replaced with a false stamp that gave him a whole new personality, Jona Jack began to develop a grudging respect for Carlin Daniel as they worked side by side to avert a disaster in the heating system beneath an iced-over world.
Even without access to his memories, Jack perceived Daniel as someone he could trust 4. When Daniel was caught in the grip of another devastating addiction, he was on the verge of committing suicide when Jack arrived at the archaeologist's apartment, and talked him off the balcony ledge.
He took Daniel back to the base infirmary and watched over him, distraught that it appeared his friend was dying, to the point of being threatening to Dr. Starting to be affected himself, he stayed with Daniel and carried him back through the stargate to the planet where the addiction had started, until a solution could be found for a successful withdrawal 4. Perhaps the greatest rift between the two men occurred after the android Reese was discovered off world and brought back to the SGC.
Jack saw it only as a machine, but Daniel regarded her as a sentient life-form. It was this respect for Reese's life that led him to continue to negotiate with her and offer his friendship, even after it was discovered that she was the original source of the Replicators. Jack saw only the threat she posed to Earth and killed her as soon as he believed it became necessary, though this action caused Daniel terrible grief and regret.
Jack took the time to apologize to Daniel for what killing Reese cost him personally because Daniel was his friend 5.

Jack staunchly defended Daniel's actions on Kelowna simply on the knowledge of Jackson's character, without any details on which to base his beliefs. When the truth later came out about Daniel's heroism, Jack believed that story because it fit with Daniel's character.
O'Neill was violently opposed to continuing treaty relations with Kelowna because of their treatment of Daniel and their refusal to acknowledge the truth of Jackson's sacrifice for their world.
Jack visited Daniel several times as he lay dying from radiation poisoning, and made an attempt to tell Daniel how much his long-time friend meant to him. Daniel understood the awkward attempt at resolution, and it was through Jack that Daniel expressed his need to cease all efforts to heal him 5. During his incarceration on Ba'al's secret base, Jack was being tortured to death repeatedly, and consequently revived in Ba'al's sarcophagus in an attempt to extract information from him about the Tok'ra symbiote, Kanan, who had been briefly imbedded — but not blended — in Col.
Daniel disregarded one of the rules of the Ascended and came to offer his emotional support to Jack, and to try to help him ascend as a means of escape from the unending pain and death. Jack refused, and Daniel sought another means of helping his friend — by planting an idea into Teal'c's mind during a session of kel'no'reem 6. When Jack relayed the information to Gen. Hammond and the rest of his team, he knew it might make him sound crazy, but went ahead with the request on the strength of the trust he felt for Daniel.
The mission was undertaken immediately, and upon Jack's demand for Daniel to appear to them on Abydos, he did. Jack pushed Daniel into breaking the Ascended rules to help his friends and the people of Abydos, possibly not realizing it might cost Daniel's existence to do so. That consequence was brought home to Jack after the destruction of the Abydonians, when Maj.
Carter reminded the briefing team how much Abydos meant to Daniel, and that he would have done everything in his power to save those aliens who were once his adopted people. That he hadn't been able to stop Anubis could only mean one thing, and once Jack realized that Daniel might have sacrificed himself, he appeared to be regretful and saddened by the knowledge that he instigated what might have been Jackson's last act of courage in a futile act to save the lives of others 6.
Jack was stunned when he was reunited with the corporeal Daniel. He attempted to jog amnesiac Daniel's memories, telling him that he was a friend of Jack's. He returned him to Gen.
Hammond and the SGC with a flourish and remained at his side while Dr. Later, he escorted Daniel to his temporary quarters, where he admitted to keeping some of Daniel's personal things alive, such as his photos of himself on a camel before the pyramids in Egypt and of his wife Sha're.
He was surprised and deprecating when Daniel explicitly stated the trust he had for Jack and his leadership and as Daniel began to regain his lost memories, welcomed him home 7. When Daniel was taken over by 12 dispossessed souls who battled for control of his body, Jack chose to stick it out with Daniel at the SGC while Carter and Teal'c went back to the crashed spaceship where Daniel had been attacked.
Jack understood that with Daniel in strict medical isolation, he couldn't be with him physically, but he still chose to remain, and watch over his friend from the observation room above.
When Daniel's fate hung in the balance and it seemed the personality of the sovereign Martice would keep control of Daniel's dying body, Jack took action, forcing the ship's officer Pharrin to choose to sacrifice his sovereign, his little son, and the other souls to save Daniel and the living people aboard his ship 7.
Jack's friendship with Daniel was in a very comfortable place in the months following Daniel's return, with the two accepting of one another's differences and exhibiting deep, sincere understanding, empathy, and open affection. They were closer than ever before, their friendship warmer, deeper and not needing words. Jack defended Daniel to Col.
Edwards, stating that Daniel is nearly always right about things. Protective and watchful, Jack demonstrated his feelings for Daniel and wry acknowledgement of the truth, which is that he had been broken in by his stubborn friend 7.
Later in that year, there was evidence of some emotional distance on Jack's part, beginning with his seeming reluctance to retrieve Daniel and Dr. Lee from kidnappers, and his lack of outward emotion on finding Daniel injured but alive. Perhaps actions speak louder than words, as Jack did kill all of Daniel's kidnappers, saw to Daniel's leg wound, and helped him to stand and walk back to the rebel camp 7.
When he saw Daniel suffering under the hopelessly parochial machinations of the world leaders of Jonas' home planet, he sympathized and stepped in to end the negotiations just as Daniel was at his wits' end 7. Their friendship was re-affirmed in its non-verbal glory as Jack stopped Daniel from taking the Ancients' download; in spite of his practical explanation, it was clear he would rather risk his own life than allow Daniel to sacrifice himself yet again 7.
Later, having defeated Anubis and with his mind completely subsumed by the Ancients' knowledge, Jack's last words before being placed in stasis were directed to Daniel: Jack reluctantly shot Daniel to prevent him from doing any more harm, and to stop Teal'c from delivering a potentially fatal second Zat shot.
Jack kept an eye on him in the isolation room and rushed to see him when he woke up. When Daniel confronted him for having shot him, Jack avoided talking about it, though he chided Daniel for being up and around too soon 8. Jack was very concerned that all three team-mates had been taken by Ba'al, and worked tirelessly to get them back, poignantly glancing at Teal'c and Daniel's lockers after they had been missing for several days.
No doubt his memories of torture by Ba'al made his imagination run in nightmarish directions on behalf of Daniel and the whole team 8. Jack was relentless in driving the SGC to get Daniel back from a planet trapped in a civil war sparked by the SGC's arrival, even snapping at Carter to find a way to communicate with him. He was visibly relieved when Daniel did finally make radio contact 8. He had to face the fact that Daniel had been well trained under his command.
Jack then hesitated to allow the Prometheus to fire on the Al'kesh, which was fortunate since the ship was able to retrieve the 'gate and all three members of SG-1 8. Jack's reaction to the loss of Daniel to radiation sickness and to the the proof that Daniel really was still 'out there' were shown indirectly through the reactions of Joe Spencer, who lived those events via a communication stone that was transmitting Jack's experiences and mission reports.
To the degree that Joe's reactions were a reflection of Jack's, Jack was indeed devastated by the loss of Daniel, and overjoyed once he realized Daniel was really still around and keeping an eye on him 8. Jack was disturbed by Daniel's disappearance at the hands of the replicators but would not allow Carter to speak of his fate with any certainty 8. He refused to believe Daniel was dead even after they had not heard from him for a week.
He was convinced Daniel was around in some form and would 'waltz through the door' at any moment.
When Daniel did return from his time in the diner with Oma, Jack was pleased but hardly surprised. Perhaps after all they have been through, Jack is unable to face the possibility that Daniel could ever leave for good 8. Jack admitted that he wasn't sorry Daniel had missed his flight to Atlantis, and, in his own way, Jack reassured Daniel about the threat of the Ori 9.
His purpose seemed to be to decide whether the SGC should trust Daniel or not in his promises to take out the Ori. Finally Jack did trust him, against his instincts given what had been done to Daniel, and the team was able to send the anti-Ori weapon through to the Ori galaxy Children O'Neill has a big soft spot for children as well, most likely from having been a father himself, but also because he relates well to them.
Skaara The greatest connection Jack had with a child was the boy he encountered on Abydos — Skaara. He identified with Skaara's bravery and curiosity, though the boy was older than Charlie by several years. After teasing Skaara over smoking a cigarette to be like his idol O'Nyer, Jack reacted furiously to Skaara touching his weapon, hollering that it was dangerous and frightening Skaara away.
Jack was deeply shaken by the rebellion launched by Sha're, Skaara and the Abydonian boys, his determination to kill himself, already shaken by Daniel's willing sacrifice of his life to save Jack's, rocked by the equal determination of the Abydonians to fight for their freedom.
When Skaara was taken by Apophis, Jack embarked on the search for him with a fervor equalling Daniel's search for his brother-in-law and wife. Skaara remained defiant and headstrong, 1. After crashing on Tollana, Skaara challenged Klorel for possession of his body, requesting Daniel and Jack to represent him, noting that Jack had strength and Daniel wisdom.
He spoke eloquently of his suffering at the hands of Klorel and both Jack and Daniel contributed to his eventual victory over the symbiote, despite Jack's customary flouting of trial convention. Once freed, Skaara returned to his people and continued to fight for Abydos. When Anubis sought the Eye of Ra, Skaara and his Abydonian rebels fought alongside SG-1 in Daniel's name, believing more strongly than ever that their ascended brother was a god.
Skaara had grown into manhood, becoming betrothed and asking Jack to attend his wedding. Tragically, Skaara was killed during Anubis' attack and he, along with all the other Abydonian's, were ascended by the enigmatic Oma Desala 6.Sam & Jack The Complete Uninterrupted Force Field Scene
Surely Jack mourns his loss as deeply as Skaara's brother Daniel does. Other Children After the loss of his son, he encountered an alien who took the forms first of himself, and later of Charlie O'Neill in an attempt to communicate with him.
His love for his son was instrumental in helping connect with this alien and help return it to its planet 1. A Reetou scientist called "Mother" created a human child to act as a communication conduit, whereby she could warn the Tau'ri of an impending Reetou attack. The boy knew about Col. O'Neill's late son, and asked to be called Charlie, in his honor. Jack took care of the boy during his stay at the SGC, and was both entertaining and compassionate toward him 2.
A young visiting scientist from the Orban culture, Merrin, touched Jack deeply when he discovered she would soon undergo a procedure that would alter her genius-level intellect into that of a simpleton, barely able to care for herself. Jacob sets up a really cool looking device that emits a hologram in the middle of the conference table.

Looking at the device, Daniel runs down the results of the Tokra census, listing the system lords and their hierarchy. Sam is fascinated by the technology — Daniel, the human mythology being borne out as history. Daniel informs us that Satesh is the fake god of chaos, hostility and outright evil.
Seth has a price on his head set by the other system lords because at one point, he tried to overthrow Ra.

This price on his head is why Seth never left earth but is still here, hiding amongst us. Here we get a glimpse of the wedge that Jacob and his stubborn machismo has caused with his children although, with the help of Selmak, he and Sam have worked past their problems for the most part.
While there is no doubt he loves his daughter, he cannot admit he might have made a special effort to visit her. And, the stubborn old goat, may not have! Selmac decides to pipe up and say that he is the one that requested the assignment as he, Selmac, is troubled by Jacobs relationship, or lack thereof, with his son, Mark. Sam brings up the fact that Mark was unwilling to take her call even while Jacob lay on his death bed. But, alas, like many guys, he can only express it in Jerk-ease. The urgency is upped to locate Seth when it is revealed that all his past cults have ended in mass suicide.
A serpent guard, Horus guard, and Setesh guard meet on a mutual planet. It is a tense moment. Besides, I bet most Jaffa would be afraid not to laugh at one of his jokes.
Jack is very respectful to said sheriff, which makes you wonder at his attitude later on to the lead ATF officer. He identifies himself as Jason Levinson. Your son is in there.

And why assume Jacob has a son as opposed to a daughter in the compound. Like I said — creepy. Either that or some footage landed on the cutting room floor that would have explained his attitude. I do get that perhaps Mr. As SG1 attempts to exit the compound back to the main road, they are halted by a rag tag group of heavily armed men pointing guns directly at them.
Whew, SG1 is not in trouble… yet.
