I’m already bored of the Caprica days – let’s get back to the Galactica.
Isn’t Gaius going to stay with Galactica? I just assume that Gaius is going to eventually do something selfless as Lee challenged him to.
I thought it was a little forced when they just decided that Lee was President, but now they can do it again to Lampkin, the lawyer?
A-ha, Gaius did do the right thing, after all.
Centurions with red stripes – presumably marked so we know which ones are good ones, not just huge fans of the Jamaican beer.
An “X” on the forehead of those too badly wounded – that’s cold.
That Cylon ship is pretty cool looking.
“Brace for impact” – Nice! You don’t see enough of that in sci-fi.
“You see them?” Funny. Good end to a silly kissy scene.
Good battles. Nice to see the old Toasters in play. Still no answers to speak of, though.
Will we finally see what the theater dreams/visions are all about?
Five illuminated figures on a balcony. Ooooo.
A deal with Cavil seems like a questionable move. And he seemed strangely willing to go along with the deal. A time to worry? Or just proof that Cavil really hates being mortal?
“There must be a way out of here”… nice use of the lyrics.
All this has happened before and it will all happen again. Is that why we are back at Earth?
Okay, so what Earth is this? If not the same as the one our crew found before, then which Earth is the one I’m typing on right now? The wasteland one or the one with the primitive humanoids?
For the sake of taking a stab, let’s say that my Earth is the one that they’ve just arrived at with the primitive humanoids and that when they say they are going to spread people around the globe, that’s a cute way of explaining the very complicated issue of how people are everywhere on our planet now.
But as beej9 asked in response to my last post, what’s next? Is the origin of Earth the “next”? And that’s what has happened before and will happen again?
“Are you a Cylon?” At the time that Bill Adama would have been considering retirement on Caprica, they did not know that Cylons had taken human form. So that seems like a strange question.
I am still struggling with the notion that they are sending the ships to the Sun. That seems like a real waste of neato techy stuff.
Umm, where’s Bill going? It’s clear where Laura’s going, but Bill?
Poof. And there we have the mystery that is Kara Thrace remaining a mystery.
Oh, okay, Bill is just moving to a hilltop and he’s not going to see Lee, just because it is such a big planet. And it was a nice way to end Bill Adama’s storyline. But surely there must be more to the show, right?
Okay, I’m glad there was more. That feels like a decent ending.
Whoops, there’s more. 150,000 years later. Wait, what will happen again? And what doesn’t like to be called “God”? Of course, they couldn’t go out with an ending that didn’t ask at least a question or two.
As to the questions I still feel went unanswered, I’d like to have known more about Daniel. Perhaps as beej9 found on EW, he was Kara’s father. But that means she wouldn’t have been all human so she was either Cylon, which she wasn’t, or she was half Cylon in which case, she was the first before Hera. Oh, and that would mean that Saul, who she hated and liked to punch and drink with was her grandfather. It just doesn’t seem right.
We didn’t see D’Anna again and we don’t really know what becomes of the bad Cylons. Other than Cavil who apparently couldn’t handle the thought of mortality – defective machine!
Overall, it’s been a fun show to watch. I don’t feel like it pulled together tightly in the end. I don’t feel like all questions were answered. And I think there are probably “meanings” that I missed. But you have to admire the creative writing and the amazing production and frakking fantastic acting. Despite its faults, it was better than most TV on TV.
