She had to be strong. She had to be tough.

That's what she kept telling herself.

But if she were to be honest with herself, she was falling apart. The job kept her focused, allowing her to push aside the turbulent emotions that churned within her. She was a soldier, brave and strong, and she couldn't show weakness on the field, not in front of her superiors, not in front of her friends, and certainly not in front of her father. She wore this brave face and wore it well.

Deep down, she just wanted to break and have someone tell her that in the end it would all be fine.

Daniel was dead. He was truly gone this time. Oma Desala wouldn't come and offer him a better alternative. Would she?

No, logically it was impossible for Daniel to be alive. She had to face that fact.

She had to move on or the doubt and uncertainty would kill her.

But even when she did put it behind her, how could she ever forgive herself? She knew that her replicator double had been responsible for taking Daniel. A cold machine that was just a reflection of herself, a creature that she had trusted, and allowed to escape.

The replicators were gone. Daniel was gone.

She had to be strong. She had to be tough.

Silently, she slid to the floor of her office and began to cry.

It was a lie.

Gee, do I wish we'd seen a scene like this on the show, Moonshayde. *sigh* At least there are good writers like you who DO write these scenes.

How hard would it be, really? It would take less than a minute to show Sam composed and break down. I could have used that!

Thanks for the compliment :)

So great, Kerri. This was exactly what the show needed--just *something* like this, and my whole outlook on "Reckoning" would have been different, no doubt. Thanks!

See, I just live in my own world so to me, these things happened anyway. It doesn't mean the writrers should slack off and not write scenes like that. But at least they play on in my head and I can live in denial.

Only problem is, if that happened then some fans would complain that Sam was weak and poor me and crying again, LOL!!

I really liked this. I agree that it should have been included in the show.

Still think the season finale should have ended with Reck 1 and 2.

NOOOO! I would be so sad if the season ended with Reckoning, since at that time we didn't know if Jack was coming back for any episodes. And Jack rocks my world. Well, after Daniel.

Since I didn't mind Threads or Moebius as much as some people did, I am okay with them.

Though you are right. People cry foul no matter what is shown. *shrugs* I say lighten up.
