"It appears that reports of Senator Kinley's death were erroneous. The Senator and the man accused of his murder, Colonel Jonathan O'Neill USAF, were involved in a top-secret governmental sting operation" The newscaster reported as the station queued up footage of the press conference.
"Jessica!" A man bellowed as he watched the news.
"What?" Jessica said as she entered the living room to see what her husband wanted.
The man stood up, his eyes on fire with rage, and gestured to the television set.
She looked up at the TV screen displaying clips of the news conference and gasped, dropping her cup of tea.
"You said he was dead! You . . . " The man seethed as he walked over to his wife and slammed his fist into the side of her jaw.
"I thought he was!" She screamed back at him. Her voice then became softer and she repeated nearly in a whisper, "I thought he was."
The last comment was all the provocation he needed as he slammed her again. She fell to the ground crying. However, she wasn't crying from the pain. She was use to that. As he began to kick her, she could only smile through her tears. Jack was alive.

"What?" Jack O'Neill called out in his usual sarcastic tone.
"Unfortunately, I haven't been able to translate the tablet. It appears to be an early form of Celtic, but it just isn't translating. No one on base has been able to help either." Jonas explained.
"Well, than we will just have to contact someone off-base."
"I thought of that Colonel; however, none of the To'kra were able to help either." Jonas added.
Jack sighed, "I meant other humans."
"Sir?" Carter asked.
"I thought we would raid Danny's address book and see if we can dig ourselves up an expert." Jack explained as he reached over to his desk drawer and to the surprise of his team pulled at the book in question.
Sam glanced at him with a questioning look. Jack only shrugged.
"How will you know based on their names?" Sam inquired.
Jack laughed, "Easy. Daniel didn't alphabetize by last name, rather by fields. I think this was more of a directory for him then an address book. Jack thumbed through the book. " Cantonese . . . Ah, Celtic," Jack smiled, "slash ancient. I think that will do the trick. Several names, but one has a star."
"So, who we callin'?" Jonas asked.
"Rupert Giles, of Sunnydale, California and Bathe, England" Jack declared.
"Do you think he knows Daniel is gone?" Sam asked concerned. Jack only shrugged.
"We'll have to come-up with a cover story. We can't tell him the truth." Sam sighed.
Jack just smirked at her. "Ya think?"

"What?" Xander summarized for the rest of the group when Giles finished his explanation of the latest apocalypse.
"Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a precise translation of this text."
Giles sighed. "I do however have an old friend who maybe able to help with the translation. I shall try to contact him immediately."
"This is going to be bad." Dawn said shyly.
Xander looked at her incredulously, "Ya think?"
