In "The Warrior" (Season 5, Episode 18), Teal'c fails an attack on Lord Yu. Yet Yu allows Teal'c to return to the rebel camp to warn them of Yu's impending strike on the rebels. If this was all part of the System Lord's plan to eliminate the rebel Jaffa; why would he send Teal'c back to warn the rebels, allowing them to escape through the Stargate (which should have been blockaded by an incoming wormhole but wasn't).
It seems like the turning point of the episode was the warning, which contradicts Lord Yu's own plan. What was his motivation to ruin his own attack and allow the rebel Jaffa to survive?
