    Maybe the spines only glow during Cylon/Cylon sex. Where all have we seen it? And yes, that is what I'm implying.

    Negative....Boomer's spine glowed when she had sex with Helo, a human, on Caprica in Season 1. Or was it Six when she had sex with Baltar (who is BARELY human). Or was it both? I'm old and forgetful...

    Humans have never seen the glowing spine, so it's really just a tease to the audience. There's nothing that says we have to see the glowing spine every time a cylon has sex. Did we see both Deanna and Caprica Six glow when they trysted with Baltar?

    Right and wasn't it in the common flight crew quarters so they all returned to find the hatch locked? The female pilot asked Anders why it was locked, spotted Tory doing some sort of cower of shame on the bunk and gave a weird look. Is she into Anders? Did we know it? Does he know it? Does it really even matter or just a look of general disappointment that he rolls with townies?

    Terrific comprehensive BSG recap and analysis here... LONG

    http://www.salon.com/ent/tv/feature/2008/04/02/bsg_explainer/index.html

    Character summaries & re-caps on page 4

    Those of you extremely spoiler averse (really speculation & spoiler hints) might want to skip page 5

    And this once more reveals Moore's 'on the fly' approach to ploting...

    "Moore explains in the season finale podcast, it was his idea to out four "Battlestar" characters as Cylons in the finale. Once that decision was made, he and the writers narrowed down contenders.

    Ultimately, the four were chosen for their plausible back stories and dramatic impact: Anders survived for an extended period of time on Caprica under Cylon occupation; Tyrol had a long-standing love affair with a Cylon; and nobody knows anything about Tory -- besides her fondness for pantsuits -- making her history easy to fabricate.

    As for Tigh, Moore admits that his will be the hardest back story to explain. Tigh has known Adama for decades, and fought in the original Cylon war. He's a drunk, hates the Cylons more than anything else and was a principal figure in the anti-Cylon insurgency.

    Moore has made it clear that these four Cylons will be unlike those previously shown on the show. As he points out in his commentary, "They're a different kind of Cylon and ... these rules that we've painstakingly established for the other Cylons need not necessarily apply to [them]."


    I think this reaffirms points made here by the more astute observers of BSG (which I am not one). Fugettaboutit on the glowing spine thingy as revealing Spylons, etc. In my personal taste I regard such after the fact revisionism as cheapening the experience and betraying those viewers who followed closely looking for hints of things to come. :thumbsdown:

    We now know that the BSG universe is ruled by chaotic quantum randomness. :D

    Okay, so now I'm confused. I thought that the # 8's all sided with Cavill except for Boomer and that Boomer was the swing vote that broke the tie, thereby only allying one # 8 (Boomer) with the # 6's. So why were there two # 8's with the # 6 that people are calling Natalie (and where does that name come from?) Am I totally wrong?
    EDIT: Okay, I had it backwards. Oops.
    They've called her Caprica before.

    The bolded line had me seriously LOL.

    Painstakingly is not the word I would have gone with.

    Haphazardly.... Randomly.... Even spasmodically. But not painstakingly. :)

    No one's called Spartacus-Six by the Natalie name in an episode yet. The Natalie name has yet to be mentioned verbatim. (Cavil just calls her Six.)

    (it may merely be Ron Moore's name for that particular Six, to avoid too much confusion)

    Did anyone else notice any subtle Moby Dick references during the garbage barge scenes?

    Obviously the name Starbuck being one of them. But the scene where Starbuck is walking on the above decks while the rest of the crew is below looking up at her and she looks down to give their new coordinates? That's almost right out of the book.

    Seems to me that Starbuck was playing the part of Captain Ahab and is off on a journey in search of her White Whale (earth) while the crew thinks she's offer her rocker.

    I believe Boomer was the only 8 to side with Cavil. Thereby screwing up the consistency the Cylon votes always had in the past. Voting along party lines is how I saw it. All of the 8's agreed with the 6's except for Boomer.

    Other than Tory's display of super-strength when hitting Cally, what actual on-screen proof do we have that they're Cylons?
