Looks like I was right! There really was no going back over what they did.

Zarek was always a complex, but ultimately unsympathetic character. Gaeta probably deserved better in the series, but it was a fitting end for a quietly idealistic character who repeatedly made bad decisions.

Oh and Ellen next week!!!!

Especially after Zarek had the entire Quorum murdered. That was one of the more brutal scenes in the entire series.

They are certainly going all-out here at the end. The cracks in the ship just adds to it.

I can't believe a show as good as this will be ending soon.

"Galactica secure" FTW.

Adama is a bad-ass, and it's fun having his son getting his bad-assery on as well.

I expected they would load the bodies on a transport ship and make it appear as if the cylons blew them to bits.

this series needs to end

many series start out so strong

because one does not know where it is going.

the whole Final 5 concept has only played lukewarm with me


sometimes I think everybody is a Cylon ?

Why not? there seems to be different versions with advanced capabilities?

There is no real way to tell them apart from humans.

And some can reproduce.


The Twilight Zone, WTF ending
is that the humans completely destroyed themselves.

And there are just different versions of Cylons.
That are so human that they may just destroy themselves, again.

Yes, this is the longest of longshots. WTF?

Zarek killing the quorum--HARDCORE.
Starbuck smashing that mofo's head into the wall--HARDCORE.
Tyroll ripping out the FTL mechanism--HARDCORE.
Rollo FUCKING Lampkin with his pen--UBER HARDCORE.

Is this maybe the best episode of the entire series, if you include the first part? Possibly.

All I know is that they managed to make Gaeta sympathetic, and that's in part to Juliani's performance, but more importantly James Callis. That final scene between Gaeta and Baltar nearly had me choked up. Because Baltar "gets him", so do we, and Gaeta is able to reach some kind of peace before it's over.

Simply amazing stuff.

I thought it interesting how you guys mentioned Baltar the other day, and he touched upon his situation barely in this episode, seemingly as confused to what his role really is as the writers are in creating it.

Or perhaps that's the whole point.

so no one wants to address this?

Baltar is definitely a cylon,
how else would he be there, the opening credits show him in a nuclear holocaust


Starbuck, a cylon, no other explanation.

and if Tigue and Adama have been friends for 30 plus? years. Then he is a cylon that ages, different from numbers 1- 7, the final 5 were all born as infants, had childhoods and experienced life as ordinary people. Therefore, anyone can be a cylon. Everybody is my guess.

I have thought the same thing. I also think that the destruction of the Cylon home world was done by humans, perhaps they turned on the Cylons. The Cylons destroying Earth was their revenge. This is my theory, but I'm sure it's way off.

I would be quite disappointed if everyone turned out to be cylon.
