The Official BSG Spoiler Thread, Final Episode #7

This BSG Spoiler Thread is brought to you by John Joseph Adams and the fact that he owns a significantly bigger and cooler TV than me. Thank you John, for Rock Band and BSG on Friday night. =)

Also, John owns a puppy, Echo. Echo loves me. I would link to a picture of Echo who is tiny and adorable, but I can't find one online.

And the usual disclaimer:

If you want to discuss the seventh 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.

I really liked the episode! I totally did not guess that was Starbuck's father, until the end and they revealed it!

Which means that either her father was Daniel (more likely) or that she is Daniel. Some people say the song she played is "All Along The Watch Tower", but if it is, I think the song has more significance than just the song. I think it's a star map to wherever the humans are going to end up. I think they just need to overlay the notes onto something. Duh. =)

Also, Boomer=total slut. And she totally mind-frakked with the poor Chief and then Helo... gah. And I think she really does have Hera, and I wonder if Hera really did cause Roslin to die.

But wouldn't you love it, if Doc Cottle just whipped out the Cylon fetus from last episode and was like, "Kept this around to save you, President! Regenerate time!"
(Original idea, not mine.)

Boomer surprised me. I thought she was redeemed. She really played Chief, didn't she? I can't WAIT for next week!!!

Frankly, I don't want to see Doc Cottle (or anyone else) "whipping out" any fetuses. Because I got a fantastically vivid mental picture when I read that and now I am feeling...not so good.

And I still say Kara = Daniel. Best argument now is that I can't think of a reason why a hybrid (child) would be able to resurrect as she did.

Hi-larious Doc Cottle theory :)

Since I'm used to interpreting the drawings of 3-year olds (days as a nanny) and have had close run ins with folks suffering from psychotic delusions, I pretty much thought that was Kara's father from right after Hera gave the drawing. I just didn't get how Kara couldn't see it, but then that whole delusional thing kicked in as an explanation.

Boomer... gah! is right. What a terror. I'm just bitter because I felt bad for her.

I then debated which actress (the 8 or the 6) saw the most action on this show as these two tended to have the most partners, though as different versions of themselves. That's just weird.

For whatever reason, this episode triggered a memory of the movie Impostor with Gary Sinise...I think maybe it had something to do with that Boomer was the first to realize she wasn't who she thought she was.

Maybe, the new BSG creators got a little inspiration from that movie.

I was like oh, great episode, right until Bommer fraked Hero. I watched it on demand, so I fast forwarded through the scene. It was totally unneccessary. As said before on several BSG forums, these producer/writers folks sure have a problem with 'relationships'.

I totally got the Starbuck thing from the beginning and I love how there's a little bit of redemption thrown in there (or it could have been in my imagination).

I LOVED this episode because it really whipped up my emotions. I felt bad for the chief, but Boomer's good at what she does...can't ignore that. Now my heart is breaking for Athena watching Boomer do her man, and then take her daughter. I felt bad for so many in this one, but...damn, I love the complexity and conflicting emotions.
And can I just say that activation song they played has given me chills since the first time I heard it. I know it's All Along the Watchtower, but I adore the different arrangement and wonder where I could purchase a BSG soundtrack and get my hands on it.
Applause, applause for this one!

On a somewhat unrelated note, I've spent most of this day trying to track down a single recording of Bear McCreary's composition for All along the Watchtower. That tune makes my pulse quicken. I find his music terribly compelling for BSG and was surprised to learn he's written for The Sarah Connor Chronicles AND Eureka.
