This was a pretty average episode, I think.



I'm all for character development, but are conversations which don't resolve anything really the best use of the slender amount of time that remains?

I liked Baltar's scenes again. We finally got to see him get back together with Caprica Six... but oh, poor Gaius! The sad part is, I think he really has changed, at least a little. I actually didn't get a "hop in bed with me" vibe from him during that conversation -- he seemed about as sincere as Baltar gets. And then Caprica ripped his heart out. :(

Sam the Hybrid is hilarious. Also highly useful to the writers. Our soup of the day is homemade C-Buc Deus-Ex-Machina! May we recommend our daily special: Looks Like Watchtower Is The Map To The Colony, And Yes That Is Really Stupid for your entree?

Speaking of which, the Colony is damn cool. I'm sure the humans will have a ball blowing that thing up in the finale, more's the pity. D: Which makes me wonder: is the Colony supposed to be the Cylon homeworld where all these "millions" are living, or do all the other Cylons live elsewhere? I'm guessing the latter, since the 2/6/8s didn't seem to know about it.

The angels/miracles/one true god/etc thing certainly seems to be ramping up. I hope they'll actually explain this soon. My pet theory: the angels/head!characters are actually nothing more than the Final Five, Kobol Edition. That is to say, they're the last Cylon survivors of the previous iteration in the cycle (and may or may not be the people the "Lords of Kobol" were based on), and they're trying to end the cycle the same way the Final Five are. Only invisibly. And halfway competently.

Oh, Cavil! You may be a wonderfully devious machine, but alas, you'll never understand how much of a bad idea it was to take the kid from Boomer. And, again, the sad part is that Cavil's scene here is probably about as sincere as he gets, too -- I don't think he was necessarily trying to hurt Boomer or even Hera. He just doesn't get these squishy human relationships.

By Hera's "playmates", he probably means Hera-copies of some kind... but I'm secretly hoping it's Simons and Dorals. How goddamn cute would that be?

On the other hand, a Hera!army would be pretty frakkin' cute, also.

More inadvertently hilarious dialogue from Ellen in this one: "we want to end the cycle of violence between machine and man". Uh, huh. Sure, Ellen. That's why your entire contribution to the struggle was "whoops, looks like we made some genocidal robots! Who could have seen that coming?" followed by "you stop being a genocidal robot and give Mommy a hug, John!"

Hmm, and now that the 1/4/5s have conveniently gathered on the big blinky target-shaped ship-thing, anybody wanna bet on whether or not the next few episodes involve man killing all the frakkin' machines?

If so: way to end that cycle, guys!

Looks like Anders is going to be the Hybrid to the Galactica for the final round with Cavil and the Colony. Speaking of the Colony, were the raiders in the Colony passing by Boomer the original versions? Did Cavil find the original Centurions and convince them to side with him? Given the original Centurions hatred of humanity, it would make sense. It would seem the S7 Cylons aren’t the original Cylons from Ellen’s reference to them as her "children." Upcoming TOS vs New Centurions perhaps? Maybe we'll get Cavil's perspective on all this next episode.

Grace Park was great in this episode. Boomer was really going through a lot of emotions in this episode, a lot of pain. I liked seeing Boomer’s empathy in this episode, her recollection of the Picon house, and finally connecting with little Hera. A Hera army? "By your command."

I guess it would make sense for the Centurions and Raiders on the Colony to be the original ones, since Ellen said that's where she took the original Centurions in order to build the skinjobs. Maybe we'll get a space battle between 1.0 and 2.0 Raiders, that'd be neat!

Yeah. She's way too wibbly ever to be a perfect machine. :3 And she still clearly longs for a child of her own... though I'm guessing the odds are pretty low, at this point. Poor Boomer.
