I think they took the cheap way out with Laura, and I'm not pleased about it.
The rest of the episode was good though.
Thought this was episode was just 'ok'. Perhaps it was because I had already guessed how the president would be cured just by watching the previews at the end of last week's show.
Gina sure did scrub up nicely. So I was having a hard time hearing the conversation between her and Baltar. Do the Cylon sympathizers she's with know she's a Cylon or not? I think he asked her but didn't hear her answer. I'm guessing no.
You guess correctly.
Her response to Gaius was "Of course not. Even their dedication has limits."
This is off topic but whatever happened to the fact they supposedly found a route to earth via the Kobol planetarium. Have they given up on that or is their constantly distracted by all this stuff?
Or if you can't wait, you can buy it through iTunes...
I found it interesting that Baltar explicitly backed off from collaborating with "Resistance"-Six at one point, yet by the end of the same episode he's proving himself to her with a nuclear warhead?! And do they really not do any kind of check on departing transports, even when it's transporting a former prisoner? A simple rad-sweep should have detected the nuke, and anyway you'd think a resistance leader being handed a giant suitcase just before his flight would raise a few eyebrows...
BTW, according to Imaginary-Six, it's a "nucular" warhead
They didn't give a clear path to Earth. They just showed them how the 12 constellations would look from Earth and some nebula as a reference point. They need to work out the rest for themselves. It looked like Baltar was working on something to do with the constellations on his clipboard.
presumably these were all the casualties from last week's battle plus Admiral Kane. The Pegasus is still there with the fleet...
I enjoyed the episode, including the nod to ST Voyager's "Prophecy" episode in which a group of Klingons in the Delta Quadrant are cured by a transfusion(?) from B'Elanna's unborn child.
Anyhoo...can somebody explain to me how Baltar managed to smuggle a nuke off the Galactica? Yes, it was placed in his care for his cylon-detector, but how crappy does security have to be if nukes can go unaccounted for?
... and what's going to happen when the Admiral asks for it back?
"Um, I, um, you see, the truth is, um, I, uh... misplaced it"
I think it's funny that Baltar still had the nuke. How long has it been since Baltar was actually working on a cyclon detection device? He's the vice-president now so I doubt he spends a terrible amount of time doing it. And I don't think Adama would just leave a nuke lying around in Baltar's lab, whether Baltar was actively working on the cyclon detection or not. I mean come on, they'd at least lock it up at night.
I think the make peace with the cyclons resistance is kinda weak. Sure it adds another element to the show and gives Six a place to hang out. But I doubt any of the survivors has forgotten what the cyclons did to the colonies. Unless of course it is being led by a cyclon (not Six, since she just joined).
I think the dynamic between Baltar and Rosyln is going to be very interesting now that she knows of his betrayal. You could tell when she woke up that she definitly remembered her dreams.
I would like to see them get back to finding Earth or some place to sit down now that they've destroyed the Cyclon fleet following them and presumably the Cyclon's are licking their wounds.
Good episode though.
Technically, the ad isn't part of the episode; presumably, it's just the newest network promo for the show.
I didn't see it. Exactly what was it?
Is it just me, or did the President's "human count" stay the same even when they met the Pegasus? I would think that it should have gone up by at least a thousand...
Overall I found this episode more, well, annoying, than anything else.
Out of the blue there's Cylon sympathizers. I don't buy it.
The whole episode was a mess, really. Its very off-putting.
First the whole "kill the baby" decision seemed abrupt and without much basis. Then the whole "inject the baby's blood into the President and maybe the cancer will go away in 5 minutes" is more like some 11 year old playing doctor. Yeah, they wrote themselves into a corner with the President and as she probably turned out more popular than expected now want her to be around longer. The sabotage/threats by the sympathizers seemed contrived and their demands somewhat unrealistic and pointless considering the fleet's current circumstance. Then you practically have armed threats made against Adama while the cylon is being brought to the medical center to terminate her pregnancy and they do almost nothing about it except let him go.
And then the Pegasus cylon now has a private headquarters and armed guards on Cloud Nine. Yeah, that's really believable, too.
Truthfully after this debacle of an episode, I know I care a little less about the show than I did before I watched it. It's very disappointing.
I think I missed something. It the previews, they showed Baltar explaining the blood on a piece of paper. In the show it was on a wall.
Also next weeks episode...
Looks like a stand alone episode, not contributing to the cylon storyline.
I don't believe it was an "ad"...it was part of the show.
I have no clue what anyone is taking about either as far as the cylon baby commercial is concerned...
It came up at around the 28 minute mark of the show. It was the first commercial of that particular commercial break.
I wasn't bothered by the content of the commercial. I found it intriguing and think it would help bring in new viewers. I *was* bothered by the fact that they were advertising a show in a timeslot where viewers were already watching the show advertised, and that the content of the commercial gave away the fact that BabyBoomer wouldn't be aborted, which killed some of the drama in the show.
