I never really thought it was a test, but more like Jack giving Daniel the control over the situation. it was Daniel choosing to save teal'c even though he knew that this could potentially save his wife. i think Jack knew what Dan would choose, but he wanted Daniel to be sure that Daniel realized that he wanted to do it. Urgh! my thought aren't coming out all that well in words. sorry.Originally posted by archiver
But what I found the most interesting was the little 'test' that Jack put Daniel through at the end of the show by giving him the Staff Weapon and the responsibility for destroying the Hammer so that Teal'c could leave. I don't think he was doing it to put Daniel on the spot or to prove his loyalty to the team, but to show Teal'c that no matter what the consequences, Jack wasn't the only one who considered Teal'c 'family'.
