In the new version the guy with the glowing eyes only goes after Sha're when Weterings doesn't work out, allowing them to drop the harem scenes altogether.
Are you saying we shouldn't? Turns out that Ferretti saw all seven symbols that the snake squad dialled into the gate back on Abydos and he's remembered the address this whole time! After the first week it was dropped entirely.
I've chosen this screencap at random to demonstrate what the original framing could looked like when the episode first aired.
It just seemed so out of place.
