    thumb|left|200px|[[Colonel">thumb|left|200px|[[Colonel Jack O'Neill attacks a Death Glider.]] After receiving coordinates from what is believed to be the Tok'ra, SG-1 travels to PB5-926 where a Death Glider is chased by two other Gliders and crashes. The pilot turns out to be Apophis who begs for the team's help. Chased by the Gliders, the team takes Apophis through the Stargate to Earth where he demands sanctuary. It's discovered that Apophis is not only severely injured, but the symbiote has been tortured as well and both the host and symbiote are dying as a result. Also, without a Sarcophagus to sustain him, Apophis begins to age as his body is over ten thousand years old. Apophis reveals that Sokar is the one who tortured him and offers all of his knowledge in exchange for a new host in order to survive. The Tok'ra try to get Earth to send Apophis back to where they found him, but they refuse.<ref name="Serpent's Song" /> Angered over losing Apophis, Sokar starts to dial in and use a Particle accelerator to heat up the Iris with the intention to melt it so he can invade Earth. The wormhole is only able to be held open for thirty-eight minutes and during that time, Stargate Command personnel use liquid nitrogen to try to cool down the iris to little use. When that time is up, the SGC tries to dial out, but Sokar dials in first and continues his attack. Knowing that even if he fails to penetrate the iris, he will likely send ships to attack, it is decided to dial back to PB5-926 when the wormhole shuts down and send Apophis back through, stopping medical intervention at the same time so that Apophis will die. As Sokar is at war with Heru'ur, this will be enough to stop the attack.<ref name="Serpent's Song" /> thumb|right|200px|[[Apophis">thumb|right|200px|[[Apophis' Apophis' host|host.]] As the attack continues, Apophis' weakened condition allows Apophis' host|his host to surface and Dr. Daniel Jackson comforts him. Apophis regains control and begs for a new host, admitting that he's afraid before dying, but the host remains alive for a little longer. Jackson promises to do the funerary rites of his culture so he can move on and the host dies too. Thanks to Captain Samantha Carter speeding up the dialing process, the SGC is able to dial out before Sokar can dial back in and Apophis' body is sent through the Stargate back to PB5-926. This is enough to make Sokar stop his attack as even though Apophis is dead, Sokar has a sarcophagus and can revive him.<ref name="Serpent's Song" />


    Martouf's prediction of Sokar reviving Apophis turned out to be true as Apophis was revived and he managed to disguise himself as Na'onak, First Prime to Sokar's underling Bynarr, lord of Netu.<ref>{{cite|SG1|Jolinar's Memories}}
