The Official BSG Spoiler Thread, Final Episode #5

Here is this week's BSG Spoiler Thread.

I've only watched the first part of the episode, until the first commercial break, because my poor husband had to work very, very late last night. That said, feel free to leave as many comments as you want in this thread, and I'll moderate them later today.

If you want to discuss the fifth episode of the Final Episodes of Battlestar Galactica, please feel free to do so here.

This is a spoiler-filled thread.

You have been warned. Do not click on the comments, if you do not want to be spoiled. I will put my thoughts in the comments.

As stated in the post, I've only watched up until the first commercial break.... but Anders, you may not be biting the dust, just quite yet. Or at least until you give us some information! I'm looking forward to catching the rest of the episode later today. =)

And Ellen! Ellen created Cavil? This gets creepier and better.

I really need to watch the episode again. There was more information presented than I think in any single episode yet. A lot of answers and one terrifically new question asked.

And the new intro was just slightly mindblowing.

Over all, a letdown in my opinion, especially after the episodes that preceded it. There was too much exposition, too much history thrown in.

I think the problem was that the writers had to squeeze in a lot of information that they perhaps planned to reveal over a few episodes, but the upcoming end of the series didn't give them that luxury.

I've found it interesting that a lot of my friends reacted negatively to last night's episode, mostly due to the Final Five making the other Cylons, but I loved the episode. And it answered something that had been bugging me for a while: why was there no Seven? Until then, but it bothered me that the mass-produced Cylons were numbered One through Six and then Eight, and I had just assumed that one of the Final Five was Seven. So as odd as I found it that they added a thirteenth cylon to be Seven, it resolved my anal issue with the numbering. Plus, it parallels the addition of the thirteenth tribe--thirteen tribes, thirteen cylon models.

Even creepier then Ellen creating Cavil is Ellen creating Cavil in the image of her father.

I'm way interested to see how Ellen will react when she finds Saul has impregnated that Six.

The whole coup attempt and the way it played out was predictable and sad.

Poor Felix. His character got the short end of the stick AND I ended up hating him.

Man, I really hope they get around to explaining things about Baltar because I'm just not getting it.

His character's involvement bordering on (and has) David Lynch-esque qualities.

Some of my comments may reflect on things from the Feb 6th episode as well because we watched them back to back (thank god for DVR) because I was travelling.

Anywho, this whole thing is taking a turn for the weird as they wrap things up.

The exposition was a little heavy. My first reaction was, "Um, so explain that to me one more time?" However, I was happy to see so much information revealed. Episodes from previous seasons have often felt like they were hiding info in order to stretch things out.

I think Anders will definitely be okay. But until that happens, there's probably going to be some nasty bickering between Tigh and Kara about letting Anders get the operation before he was done talking.

To my surprise Ellen turned out a little more interesting that I thoughts she would be. I do like the idea that Calvin sent the final five to live amongst humans and suffer. He's definitely crueler than I thought.
