A drabble coda to "Prisoners."

No dough, no foul.

Shiva, the Destroyer, is the third god of the Trimurti (Hindu trinity).

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

A voice broke the silence: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds..."

"We get it, Daniel." Jack hit the dead monitor in front of him.

"Sorry," Daniel said. "It's a quote from the Bhavagad Gita."

Sam looked up from Linea's goodbye message on the one live terminal. "It's what Robert Oppenheimer said about Trinity." For Teal'c's benefit she added, "The first atomic bomb test."

Daniel's voice was distant. "Enrico Fermi took bets over whether the bomb would ignite the atmosphere and destroy the world, or just New Mexico."

"Did it?"

"No, Teal'c." But Daniel wasn't taking any bets.
