The first hour, sans-flashbacks, was amazing. The special effects were top notch! Things were going so well, and then the colonial fleet gets Hera back on Galactica's bridge. Cavil and his little army of centurions march from the colony ship all the way to Galactica's bridge, killing EVERYONE in their path, gets on the brige, grabs Hera, takes her as a hostage and demands resurrection technology. The colonials agree to give him resurrection. The **** chief kills Tori because she killed Cali. The same Cali who cheated on the chief, then pawned off a baby that wasn't the chief's, as his own. Let's not forget how much she hated the chief because he was a Cylon. Let us also not forget that the chief never really loved Cali, he always wanted Boomer. So yeah, the chief kills Tori, and as a result Cavil can't get resurrection technology.
Bad ass Cavil is on the bridge of Galactica, The hybrids on the colony ship are no longer confused, the Cylons were wiping the floor with the colonial fleet. All he has to do is tell them to start attacking again, and kill Hera, and take as many people on the bridge with him as he can. Everyone on the bridge is confused, so he'd have had lots of time to do this. But what does he do?
He takes the gun from Hera's head and puts it in his mouth, then pulls the trigger!!! WHAT??!?! Are you kidding?!? Cavil, the big bad ass, is suicidal? C'mon, you guys couldn't come up with a better way to get rid of him than that?
After that the story went downhill fast, it was all lovey dovey, they lived happily ever after, let's forgo technology, let's drive all our ships into the sun, let's also keep some raptors on the planet even though we're giving up on technology. this episode was friggin lame. Oh, and in the process of answering questions, they raised even more questions. What was Starbuck? Who is this male God they speak of? like... WTH?
By the way, wasn't the musical notes the location of the Cylon colony? How'd it become the location of earth?
They better make a movie or something to make up for this crap.
