So I am thinking, oh snap Gaeta was so clever and the Marines have her and are gonna killz her. But no. They just were ordered away from their post for no apparent reason. HOW CONVENIENT.


Maybe the Marines went to help Adama. Maybe the Marines went to help Gaeta. Maybe the Marines died silently and their bodies were taken away so as not to alert Roslin.

Maybe the Marines were in the middle of a mandatory 10-minute union break and were rather surprised to come back to an empty President's quarters.

Maybe after noticing the presidents apathy and dying of cancer, the mutineers decided that the marine were more useful killing Cylons and Adama.

Maybe they went off to an airlock to have a ciggie break and upon realising that no-one on BSG apart from Cottle smokes anymore, they embark on a boys buddy adventure to find Cottle's secret booty.

That makes the most sense. Seems only Tigh knew about the coupling from his awkward gooseberry moment, and the rest of the time, people have been asking "Where the hell is the president?"

i vote for this one.

i'm going to plot it and see how it turns out. I have a feeling cottle is a cylon and this whole secret booty thing is a smoke screen.

Nice one F. I do love the BSG music... so even if it has been posted in this massive thread before I'm glad that you did it again.




Oh and just in relation to last weeks ep: A little chant came to mind when I saw Adama.... it happens to be the same chant that many of you US chaps would have been chanting with OBAMA coming into powa.

YES WE CAN....!!!!! WOOOO!!! Man I love this show. It just gets better and better

It looked like a flash grenade to me, so I doubt that either of them are gonna die.
I think they just flashed em, and rush in and grab em while they blinded/incapacitated.

(Surely frag grenades on a pressurised space ship next to an airlock would be a bad idea?)

ahh -- very good point. it's looking bad for everyone these days, and not just the cylons. gaeta sure sped from one of my favorite characters to one of my most-disliked characters very quickly. adama (assuming he survives all this) is going to have sweet retribution later on.

And if Felix is going to get frakked, let it be tonight. And nasty.

i also meant to mention that it's nice to see that adama has apparently gotten over the revelation that his best friend is a cylon. "it's been an honor to serve with you."

i also LOLed when tigh was struck speechless (doesn't happen often!) when roslyn came wandering out of adama's bedroom in a robe in the beginning of the episode.

It's nice to see in that "i like both characters and I want them to get along" kind of way...but to me it seemed pretty fast for Adama to treat Tigh as though nothing had changed. The line you quoted I actually understand. They were going into the heat of battle and it would make sense for Adama to realize...at that point...that whatever Tigh is he is still (more or less) the same guy he has served with for years. It was all of the casual banter and such between them that happened before that moment that bothered me a little. To me it would have been a little more effective (but quite possibly more of a cliche...it would have to be handled right to not feel hokey) if Adama still had reservations about Tigh up until that moment. That's one problem I've always had with the show. They are GREAT at nailing down high, personal drama between characters but they seem to brush those issues under the rug an ep or two later from time to time.

i agree. but i like it better that he just accepts that tigh is and has always been his friend, cylon or no, rather than he starts being all mistrusting and throwing all that history by the wayside.

as for gaeta, it IS quite interesting that -- even though they had to sort of make up lots as they went along -- all the characters histories totally organically and logically flow and feed into the place they are now. in gaeta's case, he was PART of a human/cylon "alliance" back on new caprica, and he saw first hand how well that worked out. that coupled with his experience the webisodes makes this sudden treasonous turn much more believable, in my opinion. he's gonna fall hard, and i think he knows it, but the die has already been cast and he knows he needs to see it through.

i guess it worth mentioning that the ultimate "gotcha" for felix (character arc wise) would be if he turns out to BE a cylon. i once thought that he was. now i'd be disappointed if it turned out that way.

I think it would be better if his boy-toy was a cylon. And then said-cylon sodomized him with his Robocock and demolished his internal organs.

Special kudos to the great Richard Hatch.

He is just one son-of-a-bitch. You have got to love him.

I am watching the replay of the episode right now. It just rocks to hard I can't even take it. I really dug Wayne Rose's directing.

And probably one of the most badass moments evar:

Dude goes to piss, Starbuck slams his head into the wall, takes his gun, hands it to Lee, end scene.

EDIT: "It stopped."

Fucking brilliant.

They weren't bullshitting about the body count rising. Frakking Christ.
Not going to give anything away, but Felix Gaeta must be one of the most unlucky sons of bitches
ever born. This will be one of the eps, like Exodus Part II, that I'll remember.
If they can improve on this, we're in for heavy rolls....

I can't wait for the final DVDs to come out.
Watching the past two episodes back-to-back will be an intense adrenaline rush.
Also hoping that the tempo continues up to the very end.

They never resolved Anders in this episode. The last we saw, Romo decided to help Starbuck.
And Romo....it was so good to see him again. After the mysterious dog episode (that I'm STILL unclear about) I thought that was it for him.
But no... he comes back... and proves once again that the pen is mightier than the sword.
I loved, with every geek bone in my body, how he searched the dead guy for his sunglasses...which were covered in blood.

But next week's preview......
Mrs. Tigh returns!!!?!?!?!? Interesting.

That's right, I was thrown by him saying "Someone feed my dog" in this episode.
...or was it cat again?

One thing that has been bugging me.

Did I miss something about the scarring on the hull that the Chief noticed? Was that significant in some way I don't seem to recall? Or is that going to be something that will play out later?

Yeah, between that and Anders, this episode did end feeling incomplete.
It will be interesting to see what that will end up meaning.

That scarring could indicate the structural integrity of the ship is beginning to fail.
And Romo - best use of a pen or pencil since Heath Ledger made a #2 disappear.
Roslyn basically taking over the Cylon ship was pretty damned cool...and Hotdog ignoring orders.
I forgot the name of the big guy who was in the brig - he used to be a bridge officer, but I forget.
I keep watching the ep and shaking my head. I don't think anybody foresaw the Quorem getting the Corelone Special.
Is Baltar growing a conscious? Really?

Tom Zarek is Ernesto "Che" Guveara! Really. Apart from not being a doctor. His method of resolving the dispute in the quorum shocked me.

Between Tigh's talk about no dock time for four years (inspired by Gaeta's faked transmission failure last episode) and Tyrol's discovery of the scarred bulkhead (or was it hull?), this bodes ill for Galactica's lifespan. It's already 50 years old, right?

The Corleone Special - definitely a HOLY FRAK! moment.
The one guy that told Zarek to leave... with those sideburns he looked like someone out of the original Star Wars.
Classic to the max.

Did I miss something about the scarring on the hull that the Chief noticed? Was that significant in some way I don't seem to recall? Or is that going to be something that will play out later?


Yeah, between that and Anders, this episode did end feeling incomplete.
It will be interesting to see what that will end up meaning.


maybe it's an arrow pointing towards Earth 2

I could cry, I really could.

It's been a while since we've seen such undying belief...and Gaeta of all people is the one to bring it home.

Is there noone left with his gaul? Every other faith seems fake or shallow compared to his, 'It's stopped itching'

Best line in the show was this episode,

Adama: Admiral? Admiral! You're the admiral now so you call up Roslin, and make her laugh.
So much power, arrogance and humility is such few words.

This ep almost made me cry. Zarek wanted to die to become a Martyr, Gaeta just wanted to make a difference (with a personal agenda). Gaeta is the true Martyr to a cause.

Zarek you C.U.N.T!!!!!! I'm hurt.

What a great episode! That was genuinely compelling, but kind of filler. WE ONLY HAVE SO MANY EPISODES LEFT! Glad that Gaeta, the Quorum and Zarek are all gone. Now Roslin and Adama can just be dictators because they know what's best.

I think that perhaps it's introducing Galactica's last story beat... that being she's an old ship (remember she was about to be decommissioned), and she probably has some structural damage that is too massive to fix. That would be my guess...

Firstly, let's get the comedy gold expression out the way,

He's looking more like an old Jack Lemmon than anything nowadays,

and here's the crack...

It looks like someones run down it with a rather large spot welding kit but I also get the impression the old bird doesn't have long.

You know what they always say thought, you can always make a good soup out of an old bird. She'd make a great home on Earth.
