Camelot: Season 9, Episode 20

camelot_34907579011_o

When asked what his favourite scene out of Stargate was to film, Ben said the "mud scene" from Camelot. Ben enjoys doing his own stunts and had fun with what he calls "the boy stuff." The day he shot the famous mud-slinging, sword-fighting scene against the Black Knight, it was raining, and Ben was slipping and sliding, but he loved every second of it.

 

I personally enjoy this episode for many reasons, one of them being that it's the first time Cameron Mitchell and Daniel Jackson started to come together as friends and not so much as uneasy comrades. Up to this point, Daniel had been going through a great deal and the stress of the Ori situation made him tense and very snippish towards the new leader of SG-1, Cameron. It was a bit out of character and at times unnecessary. But Cameron and Daniel end up on a solo mission to search Merlin's library in Camelot and find the Sangreal for much of the episode. When Cameron dashes out and risks his life to save the villagers from the dreaded and murderous Black Knight while Daniel tries desperately to find a way to shut it down, he earns Daniel's respect.

The scenes with Ben and Michael Shanks also offer them both a chance to really interact together. There's humour, drama, action and danger, and a real sense of camaraderie. Although Ben and Michael were onscreen together regularly throughout both seasons 9 and 10, they didn't always have the opportunity to interact beyond the usual action scenes, but when they did, they were great together.

Later, when the two are whisked away by the Odyssey, they find themselves in a terrible battle with the Ori, which will leave many dead and separate SG-1. Camelot was the season 9 finale and ends with a dramatic cliffhanger. It must have been torture for fans to wait until season 10.
