Season 11, Episode 3: Writing on the Wall

Nothing will crash a night of frivolity like a disembodied hand writing cryptic words on the wall. In this episode, Daniel is called out of his 50 year retirement to do what he does best - interpret. In exchange for a new purple robe, it's Daniel's job to set the record straight as to whether God is for or against the use of sacred, ceremonial goblets as the nice china.
