  • there were many plot points in this episode. Six may not be in Balter's imagination. Tyrol is self destructing. Tigh is looking for meaning.

    Many people might not like this episode, as it had many plots going at once. I have noticed the show is becoming more surreal, with obvious religious metaphors. The scene with Baltar getting "pulled up" by six was the first real evidence that she is more than in his head. Perhaps she is an angel (or demon)? His speech at the end was suprising well written nd with his healing the previous episode, it looks like he is becoming a christ figure.

    Tyrol is self destructing and obviously is worried his cylon side may end up betraying the fleet like Boomer. I thought it noreworthy that the accident with racetrack and his mention of Boomer seemed to parallel. I believe he "blew up" at Adama specifically to get demoted by saying things that he knew Adama would not stand. He does not want the power to cause damage like Boomer did when her switch was thrown turning her into a cylon.

    Tigh is one of the best characters in television. He deserves an emmy. He is picking six's brain for how to behave, and his conversations with six were very surreal.

    Fianally, the scene of boomer kissing Cavil was certainly a suprise. Dean Rockwell must be loving this role. lol
