Who will die? I hope not Gaeta, but his days seem numbered, regardless.

I'm voting for Zarek & Tigh (but Tigh will come back).

I don't know if the show has the stones to actually kill Adama (I suspect not, but this late in the game, all bets are off)... and I don't want them to, from a character standpoint, but from a narrative standpoint, it'd be pretty cool. "Parents must die before children can come into their own," etc., etc.

I don't *think* Zarek's going to die, mostly because you don't kill your weasel. You leave him alive to be weaselly and antagonize the next generation.

flee, I read that one before you posted, but I think for the benefit of others, you might want to put a spoiler warning for those checking in before the episode airs.

I've gotten to the point where I'm not exactly looking forward to watching BSG anymore. I hate the mutiny plot, I hate what they've done to Gaeta as well as other characters, I hate that it's too obvious who you're supposed to root for.

I'll watch it to the end, of course, but right now I'm not enjoying it much.

Huh. I guess you do kill your weasel.

I'm wondering if Kara got Sam to the doctor in time.

>6 jenreidreads: if Kara didn't, Sam will obviously be reborn as we've seen Ellen do in the preview clips (I thought we destroyed that resurrection ship...but perhaps it's elsewhere)

>4 littlegeek: Well, while we enjoyed the tension of this and the last episode (reminiscent of season 1 in that respect), we are dismayed that the episodes were tangential and didn't really do anything. We are back to square one again, except two secondary characters are dead (well, generally, secondary). Maybe they were just fan service for those who like 'plosions and guns and lots of running around. re: Gaeta. Good people can become misguided. There was some interesting bits when Gaeta and Zarek's philosophies differed. Always like to see the lawyer, whats-his-name.

I was channel surfing the other day and came across a showing of the first "Next Generation" episode - the Farpoint one. It occurred to me how BSG is vaguely like the whole trial of humanity. Back to the question of Why should we as a race survive. I can't remember how the STNG episode ended (pretty funny, considering how many times I've probably seen it), but wondering if the BSG crowd will take cues (good pun!) from how that turned out.

The BSG crowd IS the Star Trek crowd for the most part.

I hate when character development is sacrificed to self indulgent plot ideas. Again, a well acted, well directed episode that gave us nothing in the way of answering important questions and basically just found an elaborate way to kill off a few characters.

blech.

Hey, BSG is awesome! But yes, I must admit I am a Trek fan as well! :)

I think the ship is falling apart because of the cylon FTL drive they installed, and Gaeta will be vindicated.

I was thinking about the post-mutiny story. What exactly did the mutiny contribute to the story? Let's see, it killed off two secondary characters. It brought Laura back. It brought Chief out of his funk. Has it united the remainder - do they trust each other now - cylon & human?

The only thing i find interesting, is that the quorum is all dead now. Can't stand Lee in his governmental role. And where is Helo??????

>9 littlegeek: Yes, I am aware of the ST connections which is what makes me think back and wonder if they will end with a similar conclusion. Our good points as a species, outweigh the bad?
