Jack O'Neill: Family And Relationships - StargateWiki
Why didn't you ever confirm the Sam/Jack relationship in SG-1 but found the need to confirm the McKay/Keller relationship in Atlantis? Well, two. Jack didn't intend for anyone at the SGC to know about the relationship, but Sam Carter stumbled upon it when she visited Jack to tell him of. If you love this pair in the show Stargate SG-1, then you'll adore our Because Jack is Sam's superior officer, any relationship between the two.
He departed Earth for a new galaxy with the Atlantis exhibition team Atlantis pilot, "Rising".
When suffering from a severe head injury, Rodney had hallucinations of Sam which helped him cope through the crisis Stargate: Atlantis, "Grace Under Pressure". In another alternate reality, Sam discovered that her alternate married Rodney McKay, who in that universe was a dot com millionaire. The marriage ended in divorce. Sam appeared disturbed by the idea Since Sam has become Rodney's boss on Atlantis, he "formally" announced that he was seeing someone and hoped their relationship could remain platonic SGA 4.
Jay Felger, SGC research geek, dreams of winning Carter's heart, although he is painfully awkward around her 6.
Felger is also presumably still breathing. Agent Malcolm Barrett seemed to have some sparkage with Sam, and showed an interest in her social life 6.
Sam has always rebuffed his advances. He specifically asked about her single status during a hunt for Ba'al, but she cryptically responded she was "not exactly" single 9. Whether this indicated another love interest or was just Sam's way to shut Barrett down is unconfirmed.
She complied as a delaying tactic and believing Ba'al would be unable to escape. Later, she realized Barrett must have been brainwashed by the Trust because of his actions during the incident.
Barrett later recovered Presumably Malcolm Barrett is still alive and well. Replicator Fifth went to great, if demented, lengths to show his love for Carter while torturing her 8. Sam used his feelings for her to convince him to set her free. Fifth was betrayed and destroyed by the human-form replicator of Carter that he had created in her image 8. Pete Shanahan, police detective, wooed Sam on a more long-term level, and they became engaged 8. However as their wedding approached, Sam grew more and more uneasy with the idea of domestic life in contrast with her world-saving job.
Her feelings for O'Neill apparently added to her anxiety, and in the end she broke up with Pete before the wedding 8. Early on she was eager to prove herself to him, which she succeeded in doing. There were times when she looked to him for comfort 1.
She inflicts her technobabble upon him, while enduring his teasing or lack of interest 7. As Sam put it to Mr. Bregman in the documentary he was producing, "Uh, we don't get much time outside of work. When we do, um, our personal interests are a little different. While under the influence of the histaminolytic virus acquired in the Land of Light, Sam threw herself at Jack in the locker room and attacked him when he resisted her amorous advances 1. When a Carter from an alternate universe came through the quantum mirror seeking assistance, she discovered the Jack and Sam in that universe were married and Jack had been killed.
This at least gave our Carter pause to think about the nature of their relationship 3. When Jack went missing, Sam spent every waking moment driving herself relentlessly to find a way to bring him home again 3.
While on a mission to destroy Apophis' new ship, Sam was caught behind a force field. Jack refused to leave her behind, even when she encouraged him to go so he wouldn't be blown up with the ship 4. He later admitted that he could not acknowledge his feelings for her even to himself, when accused of being a Zatarc—a Goa'uld "sleeper" programmed to assassinate.
He said would rather die himself than lose her, and that he cared for her a lot more than he's supposed to. We did not see her side of the Zatarc interrogation, but we presume that she said something similar about him in order to clear herself on the machine 4. After having her personality replaced with a falsified memory stamp, she believed she was a former miner named Therra. Jack as Jona said he remembered "feeling feelings," possibly for her, but was vague about the admission.
She was openly fond of him, and spent much of her free time with him, even leaning her head on his shoulder during a rest period. Once their memories began to return, Carter once again called him 'Sir', putting an end to any changes that might have lingered from the mind stamps 4. When the colonel was missing, trapped with Maybourne on a deserted moon, she became uncharacteristically impatient and abrupt with the scientists trying to find him.
When hope of finding him started to wane, she wept openly on Teal'c's shoulder over the loss 6. In those earlier years she seemed to hold their military mission in higher regard than any personal gain she might get out of a closer relationship with O'Neill. While on P4X under the influence of the hypnotic Light, Jack made clear to her the importance of maintaining chain of command regardless of how long they might be marooned off-world, though she was ready to drop it and was openly argumentative toward him 4.
However in their seventh year on SG-1, Carter came to some realizations about the nature of her feelings for O'Neill while she was injured and alone aboard the Prometheus 7. In her conversation with her subconscious vision of O'Neill, Carter admitted that she cared for O'Neill and questioned whether they would ever have a chance together, even if she quit the Air Force. However it was clear she wasn't sure how he felt about her, and finally she had an epiphany: This realization freed her to pursue other relationships, which she did with Pete Shanahan.
O'Neill was very supportive of her involvement with Pete, noting the budding romance must be special if it were 'humworthy' 7. When things got even more serious and Sam was considering whether to say yes to Pete's marriage proposal, she asked O'Neill for advice on having a family, and he was once again supportive of her 8.
However, while she continued dating Pete, it was clear she had not fully resolved her feelings for O'Neill. When O'Neill was struck by a staff weapon blast, she left her position to go to him while the battle was raging.
While grieving for Janet, she admitted to O'Neill that she was glad he was alive, and her concern seemed to be more than that of a friend and subordinate 7. After O'Neill took the Ancients' download, knowing that his mind would be taken over and that he might die, Carter twice tried to share her feelings with him. The first time, they were interrupted by Daniel and Teal'c's arrival and O'Neill's home, and the second time, O'Neill cut her off with brusque "I know" 7.
She told him she was having second thoughts about the wedding and that there was a reason she was telling him about it. However they were interrupted by O'Neill's girlfriend, Kerry Johnson, and Carter was never able to say what she had come to say. In any case, perhaps prompted by Jacob's dying words telling her to find a way to be happy, Carter broke up with Pete 8. Later, O'Neill was promoted to Major General and transferred to Washington, and she was transferred to Area 51 on her next promotion.
Whether or not either acted on any romantic feelings is unclear, but technically as head of Homeworld Security, General O'Neill was still in Carter's direct chain of command. Once when injured, she mentioned "fishing" was a password to personal computer files--a hobby more associated with Jack O'Neill When Sam later was transferred to Atlantis, she brought pictures of all of her old teammates, including more than one of O'Neill, as well as pictures of her father and Cassandra; these pictures decorated her office and personal quarters SGA 4.
She had opened herself to the possibility of a relationship after her bout of self-examination on the Prometheus. As their dating became more serious, Sam seemed very playful and happy when with Pete, and it was clear that he was very much in love with her. Pete had a bit of trouble in his childhood, and a cop helped him out.
That in turn inspired his career choice. Unhappily, his wife divorced him over the long hours and uncertainty. Pete could not overcome his curiosity about Sam's job, which he did not believe involved deep space telemetry. She finally had to admit that she wasn't allowed to tell him.
That only piqued his curiosity further, and he followed her to the stakeout of Daniel's house.
Why the Stargate fandom can officially declare | There are no fish in my pond
Because he had seen so much already, Sam was given permission to tell him all about the Stargate Program 7. Presumably their dating continued, although Sam continued to demonstrate feelings for O'Neill as well. When Carter was taken prisoner by Fifth, Fifth presented her mind with an idyllic existence, married to Pete and living on a farm on Montana. Fifth must have believed this would be an effective way to insert himself into her subconscious in a form that she would love and trust so that she would eventually believe the false life he had created.
She realized the man in the dream was not Pete when he began to express resentment toward her 8. She was very happy to hear that, and in the next moment he produced a ring, and presumably proposed to her. Carter did not say yes right away, and expressed to O'Neill her doubts about being married given the risks they take going through the 'Gate and about having children in such an environment. O'Neill thought it would be possible to have children but admitted that if things had been different for him, he would no longer be there.
Finally after more than two weeks of consideration and a successful rescue of Daniel which Pete participated in, Sam gave a sincere and enthusiastic 'yes' to his proposal 8. As the wedding approached, however, Carter seemed reluctant to participate in the preparations and was embarrassed to even be caught talking to Pete about them.
Pete's meeting with Jacob was awkward to say the least, and Jacob was not overly impressed. When Pete showed Carter the house he had placed a down payment on for them, she reacted more with trepidation than pleasure. Her case of cold feet building momentum, she went to visit O'Neill to discuss her misgivings and the reasons for them, but she was interrupted by the presence of Kerry Johnson and then by news that her father was very ill. On his deathbed, Jacob told her he wanted her to be happy and implied that he didn't believe she was with Pete.
The combination of her fear of Earthly married life, her father's lack of enthusiasm for Pete, and her persistent feelings for O'Neill was too much for the relationship, and Carter broke up with Pete in front of the house he had planned to buy. Pete was not completely surprised and did not beg or lash out at her, to her surprise. He said goodbye and walked away, and it is unlikely she ever saw him again 8.
Other Relationships Carter loves children and adores being an auntie, even though she has doubts about the practicality of being a mother given her career. Even eight years after the accident, he had a picture of Sara on display in his home.
However, he declined to tell Carter whether or not they were still in touch 7.
Romantic Interests Jack has had a few off-world romances. Kynthia married him according to Argosian custom, though he was not aware that he was being wed at the time.
The ceremony involved eating a cake infused with mind-altering drugs, followed by the traditional wedding night, from which Jack awoke terribly embarrassed and confused. The marriage lasted for a period of a few days 1. Also of note was a relationship with Laira on the planet Edora P5Con which Jack was marooned for approximately three months.
He may also have fathered a child with Laira, but chose not to find out. To his credit, he did ask her to return with him to Earth, but Laira declined, choosing to remain on her world without him 3. It was a somewhat serious relationship: Jack didn't intend for anyone at the SGC to know about the relationship, but Sam Carter stumbled upon it when she visited Jack to tell him of her doubts about marrying Pete Shanahan.
Soon after that encounter, Kerry broke up with Jack, telling him that he had issues, seemingly implying that he really wanted to be with Sam. Kerry suggested he retire so Air Force rules and regulations would no longer keep Jack and Sam apart. Jack did not argue with her, but he also did not retire 8.
Samantha Carter He shares a strong bond with Samantha Carter, even though they have few interests or characteristics in common.
He may at times have had a romantic interest in her, although it's not known whether he still does. As head of Homeworld Security, while she is a Colonel in the Stargate Program, he is still in her chain of command. So, if they are seeing each other romantically, it is against military regulations. He has shown romantic attraction to her on a few occasions: When he believed she might be dying following an Ashrak assassination attempt, he shed a tear in the infirmary emergency room 2.
When a Carter from an alternate universe came through the quantum mirror seeking assistance, he discovered the Jack and Sam in that universe were married and Jack had been killed. In an attempt to console her, he kissed her 3. While on a mission to destroy Apophis' new starship, Sam was caught behind a force field, and he refused to leave her behind 4.

He later admitted that he could not acknowledge his feelings for her even to himself, when accused of being a Zatarc — a Goa'uld "sleeper" programmed to assassinate. He said he would rather die himself than lose her, and that he cared for her a lot more than he's supposed to. It could be argued this sentiment applies to all his teammates; they are his family, above and beyond simple members of his team 4. During a time loop in which the same day repeated over and over, in one loop he tendered his resignation to Gen.
Hammond in the gate control room solely so he could kiss Carter. This may have been to relieve his growing boredom rather than a serious attempt at romance, since he was dressed very casually and made no attempt to woo her first 4. After having his personality replaced with a falsified memory stamp, he believed he was a former miner named Jona.
He said he remembered "feeling feelings," possibly for her, but was vague about the admission 4. When Sam's body was invaded by an unknown entity, he was forced to shoot her twice with a zat'nik'tel. Afterward, he was inconsolable, and refused to have her taken off life support. Thankfully, her consciousness was found and returned to her body before it was too late 4. He was reluctant to leave her side as she went on a dangerous mission against Anubis while he went to rescue Daniel from Honduran kidnappers, and he invited her to lunch when she returned 7.
He was uncharacteristically abrupt, angry, and frustrated when the ship Prometheus went missing with Carter aboard, and Teal'c felt the need to console him 7.
Samantha Carter: Family And Relationships
He consoled Carter after Janet's death, though this could be interpreted as friendship 7. Similarly he comforted her after her narrow escape from a super soldier 7.
After taking a potentially fatal download of the Ancients' knowledge, he had several personal, if awkward, conversations with Carter, but never openly explained his feelings 7.
He consoled her in the observation room as Jacob lay dying and told her he would always be there for her 8. He asked her to go fishing with him on numerous occasions, but she consistently declined until finally the whole team went together 8.
She expressed regret that they hadn't gone before, but Jack told her not to dwell on the past. At least while he was at the SGC, Jack seemed to hold their military mission in higher regard than any personal gain he might get out of a closer relationship with Carter. While on P4X under the influence of the hypnotic Light, his emotional control slipped and he made clear to her the importance of maintaining chain of command, regardless of how long they might be marooned off-world 4.
He later expressed approval that Carter was apparently dating, and only socialized with her when other team members were present 5.
When Sam began dating Pete Shanahan 7. Whatever his feelings, he seemed happy for her to have moved on with her life. This continued when Sam was considering Pete's marriage proposal, when he again encouraged her to be happy and to have a family, even if his experience in that area had ended badly 8. He further tried to reassure her when she went to his home to express doubts about her impending marriage to Pete, and he was surprised that she was having second thoughts.
It is not clear how he reacted to the news of Sam's break-up with Pete. He did not take Kerry Johnson's advice to retire so that he and Sam could be together legally 8. Jack is apparently conscious of the occasions when Carter shows intellectual contempt for him, for example ordering her to try to deactivate a Goa'uld door-locking mechanism, despite her comments about stupidity regarding the making of the lock, then walking away from her to join Daniel.
Carter picked up on her C. He let Carter know that he thought she was tense from the moment he met her and advised her unkindly to take up knitting when she admitted she had no life outside the SGC 5. He has also openly exhibited his impatience with her scientific interests on a number of occasions, for example, turning and walking away from her while she was talking to him about changing the face of physics 3.
Hammond after one of her lengthy hypotheses 5. When she attempted to discuss the death of Daniel with him, he was extremely brusque with her and brushed her off 5.
Jack also openly undermined Carter before their peers, as in his heckling of her during her briefing for the mission to cripple the super-weapon which gave Anubis his tactical advantage over the system lords 7.
When Carter was away from the team performing a complete overhaul of the Stargate's diagnostic system, Jack, her team leader, didn't even trouble himself to remember what she was engaged on, dismissing it as her 'science project' when she called in to see him in the infirmary after he was wounded by the Unas.
Rather than talk to Carter when Daniel left them, Jack lay down and turned his back to her 7.
When she came to visit him before his mind became overcome by the Ancients' download of knowledge, he did not seem happy to see her, and their conversation was painfully awkward. Later, when he gave her command of the mission, she wanted to tell him something presumably personal, but he immediately stopped her, sounding irritated that he might have to deal with any feelings 7.
After Jack moved to Washington, Sam made a reference to not being exactly single, but she never said for sure it was Jack she was seeing 9. The last few times Jack visited the SGC, there was no indication of a romantic connection between them Therefore it is uncertain whether they are currently pursuing a romantic relationship in spite of Air Force regulations that prohibit it. Teal'c In spite of being something of a loner, O'Neill spends some of his free time with his Jaffa teammate, Teal'c.
His relationship with Teal'c is one of equals — warrior to warrior — and he relates well to his alien counterpart. He is extremely loyal to his teammates, and though Teal'c is an alien, Jack does not treat him like one: From the very beginning, he offered a place in his home to this near stranger, because of the sacrifice Teal'c made to save him and the other prisoners of Apophis 1.
Often when he has leave from active duty, he invites the Jaffa to go with him. Most of the time, this pursuit of leisure activities involves fishing, but sometimes, watching videos with other team members or Jello wrestling are involved 5. Though Jack had the opportunity to leave the labyrinth of Thor's Hammer, he refused to do so since Teal'c could not accompany him and would have been trapped there as long as the Hammer still functioned 1. Accused and later convicted of murder on P3X CartagoTeal'c chose to accept retribution from one of his victims rather than leave as ordered by O'Neill.
Jack was ready to bring armed troops back through the stargate to free his teammate, but Gen. Hammond refused to engage in hostile action against a peaceful people, even to rescue one of the members of SG-1 1.
Teal'c was the prime suspect in an attack on Cronus during his visit to the SGC for the purpose of treaty negotiations with the Asgard, but Jack refused to believe Teal'c was the culprit and assisted with the investigation to prove his innocence 3.
During the events of the time loop that trapped Jack and Teal'c in a repeating day for the possible period of several months, the two men engaged in many acts of frivolous play to relieve the stress and boredom, most notably, golf in the gate room and juggling in Daniel's office 4. At one point during the mission to test the X Interceptor, Teal'c expressed to Jack how honored he was to have served with the man. Jack was so moved he experienced a rare bout of not knowing what to say in return; however, he also felt the same way toward his Jaffa teammate when Teal'c stated they were brothers 4.
Teal'c experienced a crisis of confidence after sustaining an injury which would have killed him had he still been carrying his symbiote. Teal'c was forced to recuperate conventionally and at the end of his physiotherapy still did not feel himself ready for duty.
Jack was sympathetic and understanding of Teal'c's feeling that his weakness was akin to death, accepting that if he was not ready for duty, he was not ready. He understood what it meant for Teal'c to have lost his 'mojo' and was very supportive in the difficult mission which followed to rescue Bra'tac and Rya'c.
Jack was strong enough to allow Teal'c and Rak'nor to be tortured in order to keep his team safe and keep the chance of escape, but it is sure that he suffered for Teal'c along with Daniel and Carter 7. Knowing that he might never see him again, Jack embraced Teal'c before Teal'c left to find reinforcements to help in Earth's impending attack by Anubis 7.Eternal Sam and Jack ~ Sam/Jack (Stargate SG-1) REUPLOAD
Reunited but knowing Jack might not survive the mission, Jack and Teal'c exchanged a warm goodbye, wordless on Jack's part since by then his mind was nearly taken over by the Ancients' language and knowledge. Jack refused to give up on Teal'c or leave his side when Teal'c was trapped in the combat simulation game, even throwing out an idea that Carter used to help Daniel rescue Teal'c. Once Teal'c was safe, Jack smiled broadly at him, very pleased 8.
Jack fully supported Teal'c's desire to move into his own apartment, even going against the wishes of the OSI.
He sent Daniel to tell Teal'c to keep a low profile in order to increase his chances of remaining among the civilian population, though sadly it was not to be 8. Jack listened to Teal'c's worries about Rya'c getting married at too young an age, providing some sage advice about sticking his fingers in his ears.
He also provided support to Teal'c and Ishta when they were trapped and under attack by Moloc and his forces, and showed great concern for Teal'c's welfare 8. Doctor Daniel Jackson Jack's friendship with Daniel Jackson is one of the defining relationships of his life. Beginning with their first mission together, O'Neill felt only distaste for the scientist.
With Jack's mind clouded by the death of his son, Charlie, his only ambition was to end his pain. The trek through the stargate offered that, and he leaped at the chance for a suicide mission. Though he kept his desire in check, looking out for his men and conducting himself as an experienced officer, he still prepared at every opportunity to blow himself up as an act of sacrifice for others, convincing himself that this was a noble deed.
It was Daniel Jackson who pointed out to him that he was really only seeking escape, and through this moment of enlightenment and Daniel's courageous behavior against Ra and his troops, Jack learned to respect the "egghead" and develop a little affection for him. This bond grew as the two men fought side by side until eventually they succeeded in destroying Ra and freeing the people of Abydos and Earth from the alien threat Stargate The Movie. It is possible that Jack took up stargazing after his return from Abydos in an attempt to locate Daniel, to "keep an eye on him" in symbolic fashion.
Whatever the reason he took up astronomy as a hobby, when Apophis came through the stargate and regenerated the research program, the first person Jack wanted to contact was Daniel. He confessed his deception about Daniel's death to Gen.
Hammond and contact was made via a personal gesture that only Jack and Daniel would understand — a box of tissues for Daniel's persistent allergies 1.
Though at the time Jack only bore a grudging respect for the scientist, their experiences in serving together drew them inexorably into a deep, extremely close relationship: Jack sympathized with Daniel's loss of his wife, Sha're, to Apophis, and offered the younger man use of the spare room at Jack's home upon Daniel's return to Earth 1.

When Apophis made Sha're his queen, O'Neill knew Daniel would do anything to get her back, and upon being faced with the choice of saving Teal'c once he reached the end of the labyrinth in Thor's Hammer or keeping the machine intact to save Sha're once she'd been located, Jack understood that only Daniel could destroy the machine and free their Jaffa friend.
This came from an innate knowledge of Daniel's character, and is testament to how well he knew him, even only a few months into their friendship 1.
On Ernest Littlefield's planet, Jack could see how much the knowledge available there meant to Daniel, but pressed the scientist to leave it behind and save his life, rather than be left behind, marooned forever on that alien world 1.
Jack was so upset at losing Daniel on Oannes P3X that he was unable to pack up Jackson's apartment when he was believed dead. Jack scolded Carter for reading Daniel's diary aloud, and at a wake given at his home, Jack became so distraught he smashed in Gen. Hammond's car window with a hockey stick.
He also spoke eloquently at the official memorial service for Daniel, describing how privileged he felt to have been able to call the man his friend 1. During the covert raid on the ha'taks coming to destroy Earth, Daniel was mortally wounded by a staff weapon blast to the chest.
At Daniel's insistence, Jack broke his most important rule and left the other man behind to continue the mission to destroy the ships. He touched Daniel tenderly on the face and was obviously distraught to have to leave him 2. Trapped off-world in the prison colony of Hadante, Jack wanted to make sure his team did not become targets of the other prisoners.
Having been incarcerated in an Iraqi prison camp previous to that situation, Jack understood the psychology among inmates and consequently did his best to educate the others.
He made Daniel remove his glasses so the other man wouldn't be instantly perceived as having a weakness, thereby protecting him from attack 2. Initially irritated with Daniel for his stalling in getting the rest of his team freed from slavery in the naquadah mines on P3R, Jack became worried once they returned to base and Daniel's addiction to the sarcophagus became apparent. He kept watch over Daniel, and when Daniel escaped from the bed where he had been strapped down to prevent him harming himself, Jack went after him.
The two men fought violently, and Daniel threatened Jack with the pistol he had taken from a guard, even firing it. Jack talked Daniel out of additional violence, expressed his sympathy for what Daniel was going through, and when Jackson put the weapon down, Jack held him in his arms, offering the comfort and support that reflected how deeply he cared for the other man 2. When there was a question of identity after the Salish "spirits" invaded the base, a moment of inane questions and answers that nobody else would have understood proved to Jack that Daniel was himself and not one of the aliens posing as Jackson.
These two men have an entire language of subtext all their own 2. Following an angry outburst with each other, both men were convinced there was something terribly wrong with them. Fraiser pronounced them in perfect health, it was very upsetting to them both. The men were consequently discovered to be suffering from reactions to inaudible sound waves, emitted by an alien plant 2. Sometimes they even finish each other's sentences, like an old married couple 4.
