A drabble coda to "The Tok'ra (1)."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

The title and first line are from the episode.

She is the highest risk of all. She contains the memory of Jolinar of Malkshur.

Cordesh is right. Ever since Sam recognized Martouf, Jolinar's imprint has grown stronger - like some Pandora's box in her mind that having once opened she cannot close again.

Not far away Selmak lies dying. The longer SG-1 and SG-3 remain captives here, the more likely it becomes that Jolinar's compassion will overwhelm Sam. Already she doubts she can let Selmak die. If she cannot find another solution, Sam will be blended again.

The thought does not disturb her as much as it should.
