    Another Great Episode but why is it that it seems that the other cylons are at least trying to form a civil government and the "Doral" model is spouting things like "lets nuke the city" I mean that's their usual M.O. since the attack on the colonies but has the cylon ideaology towards how to deal with humans truly changed or are they all still thinking like Doral.


    Doral's hotheaded I mean he did kill Caprica Six just because she annoyed him (at least she downloaded again last time she didn't allow D'Anna Biers to finish her off because she figured that she'd be boxed but she wasn't probably because of the changes that went on during the year since that time). He was willing to nuke the city if they couldn't get the humans under control I think whatever patenice he had (if he had any) had worn thin.

    the show's creator has said that each cylon agent model represents a different human personality trait. for example six likely represents sensuality/lust, and eight (sharon) I think represents compassion/love. Perhaps Doral represents hatred/violence. he was the one that shot six in the last episode too. Their feelings towards the humans do seem to be evolving but whether or not they are feeling more compassion or more hatred I think directly relates to their specific human personality trait.

    great episode.

    i was a bit confused about Adama's reaction when he found out sharon had the launch codes. he slammed his fist on the desk like he was angry but it was probably exitement. He gives a great speech at the end that really pumps you up for the next episode

    I think that was his way of celebrating and it was the Launch Keys not codes as for that speech I knew he was going to do something like that and guessed it was this episode or the next one from the season 3 Promo Commercials where he said part of that speech while that song played in the background and he's right if they pull this off this feat will become legendary.

    I just had a thought after reading through the posts since i last checked the forum

    Casey looks alot older than Hara, which means  that either Hara is not the first Human Cylon Hybrid or Casey isn't one. The only way both of the kids could be is that Casey was created in secret using the overy that was taken from starbuck and most of the cylons don'y know about her yet, therefore they thought that Hara was the first and only cylon-human hybrid so far.

    Of course the age difference kinda wrecks this idea unless the cylons have some sort of aclerated growth technology

    Good episode. I just wish we could see the ending right away. A week is too long to wait for the climactic battle or rescue. We know from the preview that the Cylons detect Galactica as soon as the ship jumps into orbit. Sharon was in an interesting position in the detention center. Even though she's a Cylon, she has to be afraid that she'll get caught and/or killed. If she gets killed, her consciousness will get transferred to "Download City" and there would be little hope of her escaping. She could even get boxed if she were captured like that. Cavil's speech also showed that the humanoid Cylons aren't so invincible after all. Each death seems to become more painful than the last, painful enough that Cavil wants to end the experiment and destroy the entire city. D'Anna/Number Three has a strange dream but I wasn't certain what was going on in her story. At least we now know that she sleeps in the nude. If Hera is "the shape of things to come," then what is Kacey, assuming that she really is Starbuck's daughter? If Leoben is telling the truth (and that's a big if), Kacey is also a human-Cylon hybrid. Will we find out the truth about Kacey's identity? Will Kara be able to escape with her? And if so, how would a young girl affect Kara's role on Galactica? Now that Kat, Racetrack and Helo are in positions of authority, what happens to their roles if and when Kara and Tigh return to the ship? And what about Sharon? Now she suspects that Hera is alive. Adama is going to have some explaining to do. A good episode but I really need to see the conclusion to get a sense of the whole "Exodus" story. Sci Fi could have aired another 2-hr. installment, couldn't they?

    Great episode, but what the hell happend to Tyrols beard

    The infuriating thing with the show is how it all seems to be ONE LONG EPISOPE. Its like this is all one long day. So far we have had 3 hrs of BSG and we have covered 36hrs in their world. Hell the last 2hrs of show time has advanced the story; what 3hrs?...ok, maybe 4 or 5. Jeez, what is this "24"?

    Chief Tryol needs to keep his mouth shut. When he announced that Adama was coming I was so scared that Civol heard him, would get downloaded to "download city", and alert the others.

    Its stange to think that the cylons have dreams even prophetic ones.

    Tricia Helfer is a really pretty woman even in that horrible lighting, thats a really pretty woman. WTF, they have figured out interstellar travel, created sentient robots, Nuclear weapons, until the "pilot" they had an "advanced society", but no VIAGRA. Man their priorities are messed up (or maybe ours are). Why, do ALL women say that "Its allright line"? As a Man I can tell you one true thing "ITS NOT!!!"

    That was a cool scene when they read from the "Always together" scriptures. I wonder whats going on with Dualla and Helo, because that was not a "goodbye" look; that was a "I remember when my Man used to look like that in a uniform" look.  By God, "Fat Apollo" looks AWFUL, especially when you put him next to Adama. I have to admit the scene where the Adamas agree to 18 hrs had me a feelin all EMO.

    If Hera maybe "The face of things to come" why fight it. Thats sorta like trying to walk between the raindrops. Does anyone (besides me) think that Anders has figured it out? Maybe I'm just too optimistic but I generally expect that characters have a braincell or two. Does Adama even know what the President did with the child. I'm sure the doctor knows and his guilty conscience was showing during his conversation with #3. Its really sad how bad a liar he is.

    Wow, how worried were you all when you saw that bottle get thrown at Sharon. I was sure she was gonna be assaulted, thankfully she wasn't. When Sharon arrived at the detention centre and #3 told her about the kid, oooohh tension baby. The way she told her "I'm gonna have to shot you now". Knee Capping.....Classic!!! Its amazing how they can tell each other apart. Do they each have some sort of physical difference that allows them distinguish each other. I ask this because of how Caprica Six was a "celeb", and how easily #3 knew which Sharon she was standing with. BTW, did anyone get the joke of Sharon arriving in "Breeders Canyon". I thought it was cute.

    Ellen is found out. I wonder how Tigh is gonna react. There was a scene where Ellen was in the tent with Tigh where she hears about "someone" on the inside. This is before she was found out by Anders. Did she give the Cylons this piece of intel. I'd bet she did, this would explain why Gaeta is holding a gun at Baltzar head in the teaser for next week (sorta).

    Why is Lucy Lawless still a special guest star she has spent more time on screen than Edward James Olmos lately. Its time for someone to offer her a contract.

    Cavil is a whiney SOB, oh my head hurts. I'm the one who said "lets take the gloves off", but when I get my a-_ handed to me, I'm gonna cry about it.

    Ok, here is where I signup for hate mail:

    Starbuck and this kid. UGH........ I so wanted to kick her in the head. I know she has to know that this kid is not hers. I know she has to expect this kid to be Cylon. Why is she being drawn in by this crap? Yeah, I get that she is a female of a certain age, and she probably has that biological clock thing going, but come on! When Sharon got that info about the launch keys, she probably got the info about the whereabouts of Starbuck. The way she is behaving she'll either a) try to take the kid with her (Bad Idea), or b) resist leaving that thing (causing the rescue to get bogged down and end up focusing on her). With her relationship to the Admiral (Father/ Daughter), he's not gonna want to leave her behind. Anders is gonna go back for her like she did for him. Fatboy is gonna risk his ship (and Marriage) for her. All the while, she's down there creating a little "Family", with (possibly) 2 Cylons. She used to be one of my favorite characters, but now, she's just too stupid to merit my admiration. When she was killing Leoben atleast once a day, she was cool. Leoben brings a (Cylon) kid into the picture and she breaks in a couple of hours. 4 months of resistance down the toilet in 3 hrs; AWESOME. How worthless is she??? When Leoben is holding the kid and the kid motions for a 3way hug is she gonna go and reach out for her and him (I almost threw up there) When she gets back on BSG is she gonna be seeing that thing like Baltzar with #6. I hate this story arc. Could they please end it a quickly as possible. They have already ruined one character, how many more are they gonna sacrafice to it. No Mas, por favor No Mas!!!

    As for Tyrol's beard. It's called shaving. He feels he's gonna have to be in Uniform soon.


    Yeah the commercials for next week indicate that Apollo got out of his funk, disobeyed orders and came to help which is actually good since I don't think that the Galactica has a chance on it's own against 5 Baseships (either Kat or Racetrack mentioned that during one of their planning sesions where they mentioned the Launch Keys) and their Raiders and Heavy Raiders not to mention the ones that are already on the ground. I agree about the Scriptures part but if you think about it that did make sense and Lee and his father seem to be reconciling if you watched that scene on the Hanger Deck they both looked about to cry and from what Admiral Adama said he nearly did. As for how D'Anna Biers knew (and from what Dr. Cottle said the humans know she's a Cylon agent now so even if they did leave with that reporter copy of her she's been exposed now) which Sharon she was they did say the Centurions couldn't tell them apart but they never said anything about the other Human-Form Cylons- presumably they have a way to tell who each other is otherwise it would get very confusing for them. I wanted D'Anna Biers to get killed and re-downloaded but what Sharon did is understandable- by wounding her she incapacitates the Cylon and prevents her from Downloading and warning the other Cylons. I mean she's the only model they've only killed once on the show. The others got killed at least a couple of times, hell even Cavil the newest identified Cylon has died at least a couple of times one of them said it was three for him and there were at least two of them there which makes me wonder if the two primarily shown were the ones captured aboard Galactica and blown out the airlock after interogation which would fit with the three downloads since that would be one death and download. But now that I think about it probably not these Cylons only download now because there must be some kind of download facility on New Caprica and those two would have gone to the Resurection Ship which was destroyed and the Cylons would have found them sooner then they did since the humans were near New Caprica when that happened and the Cavil's could have given away their posistion. As for the gun being held to Baltar's head everyone wants him dead so maybe it's an assasination attempt althugh I don't think it works since Baltar returns in a much later episode unless he is a Cylon. I didn't pick up on that joke about Breeder's Canyon until you mentioned it, thanks. Apparently in two episodes there's going to be some kind of tribunal to decide what to do with Jammer and the other colaberators (so he did survive) and my guess is that she's gonna be tried at it. As for Baltar's Number 6 she seems to be mostly silent since the landing on New Caprica only returning when the Cylons invaded and when Doral killed Caprica Six (probably did that because he was fed up with her). Now that Caprica Six has downloaded into a new body as shown at the begining of the episode (I'm glad they didn't box her, I like her, unlike Baltar's Copy which I think is just his evil concionus like Six's Baltar Copy was her good concienus) shehasn't appeared since her real self is there to guide Baltar. That Mental Copy can't really be a copy of Caprica Six since she sympathesises with humans and is not really evil like Baltar's Mental Copy. From the Promos for next week I think Kara is gonna try to take Casey with her although I hope she kills Leoben first so he can't stop her escape. They mentioned attacking high priority targets but why no mention of the Resurection Facility??? If they destroy that none of the Cylons that get killed can be restored to life. The humans do have a good chance of rescuing the people on New Caprica one of the Cylons, I think it was either Cavil or Doral said that their resources are stretched pretty thin which means that they'd have a hard time with an all out attack. If Galactica can prevent those Basestars from nuking the city then they might have a chance but what chance does Galactica have against 5 Cylon Baseships on it's own??? I know that it tore apart two in the Battle of the Resurection Ship but that was with Pegasus' help and close range attacks with all of the Raiders drawn away and no civilans to worry about.

    Dunno there's a lot of speculation about that of course it could just be the actress or whatever they hired to do that part is that age and they just can't help it because they could find no one else.

    I loved this episode!!!!!!  It was a great cliffhanger leading up to the climatic episode next week.  It was enjoyable and left you hanging all of the way through.  I even got my parents to watch this episode and the ones from last week and my mom doesn't even like this type of show yet even she enjoyed it.  I guess both of the Cavil's that have been shown were killed and downloaded from the looks of it.  That skinjob that they got the map from must have been the other Cavil the one that Ellen's been shacking up with because he seems to lead these sorts of operations (the Cavils I mean) and he'd have been the one that she gave the map to.  I almost felt bad for the other Cavil the one who got shot and was left to die and was in so muvh pain that after hours he went and finished himself off in a very painful way just so he could download into a new body.  I guess they decided not to box Caprica Six after all since she was downloaded into a new body after Doral shot her last week and if she'd been boxed that wouldn't have happened.  But what Cavil said after he downloaded is true: what they did leaving him to suffer to death like that isn't right.  I know he's a Cylon and that since they obviously built themselves a Ressurection Facility on New Caprica he can just download into a new body but it still isn't right to have someone or something suffer to death for hours like that before they go pay a visit to "Download City".  Apparently they now know that D'Anna Biers is a Cylon Agent from what Dr. Cottle said so either they learned when Anders was rescued from Caprica or they learned when the Cylons arrived or some time after that.  I find it interesting that this particular copy of D'Anna Biers is having these strange dreams and doubts about her faith.  From what was said last week this is the same copy that tried to get Sharon and Caprica Six boxed because she didn't want them messing with the belief system and was the same one Caprica Six killed to save Anders and to buy them some time to make some changes before they got to her to download and stop them.  But the one thing that they've done is kept us in the dark about who the other 5 agents are.  I mean the Cylon Council is made up of 6 of the 7 known agents: a couple of Sixes including Caprica Six, a couple of Cavils, a couple of Dorals, a Simon, at least one maybe two D'Anna Biers and at least one Sharon that maybe the original Galactica Copy and probably is.  But the only Leoben Conroy shown is the one with Kara and he's probably the one from the Gemonon Traveler in season 1 if he wasn't too far from the Resurection Ship or the Cylon Homeworld to be downloaded.  The one thing that I'm curious and surprised about is that in that list of targets to hit to distract th Cylons the Resurection Facility wasn't there.  I'm surprised that they don't want to hit that since that would cause more confusion and hesitation since the Cylons whose resources according to Cavil are already stretched thin wouldn't be able to download and come back again like after the Resurection Ship was destroyed.  I loved the Admiral's speech at the end.  He's right: if they do pull this off it will probably become legendary with both the Cylons and the humans since this is the biggest operation that the humans have probably ever pulled off or will pull off.  As for the reamaning 5 Cylons I read an interesting Fanfiction story that had four of them revealed, all but Number 12.  Number One and Two were Admiral Adama himself and Ellen Tigh, Dualla and Hot Dog.  In this story Adama was one created at the end of the first Cylon War.  He fell in love and had Lee and overrode his programing.  He went to the Cylon homeworld and destroyed the Resurection Facility there and all of his copies active or not and Two's as well except two active copies.  After that the Cylons lost track of him and Number Two.  Ellen Tigh is Number Two and that would explain how she survived when presumed dead: one copy did die but the other survived.  As for Dualla she wasn't the original one.  This one was a replacement brought in during the raid on Galactica in Valley of Darkness.  The original one was a sleeper agent who the Centurions killed and replaced with this one because the other one was too human for her programing to work after all of that time so they killed her and replaced her with this one.  The story had them plan to get Dualla pregnant by Lee since technicly he was a hybrid but it didn't work since he loved Kara more.  In this one Leoben came to her in her tent to get her to get Lee and kill Adama although he didn't give away their identies.  Dualla revealed herself to Kara after the escape from New Caprica and Lee eventually found out.  In that one she overrode her programing because like Sharon she actually started to love Lee and never gave away their posistion.  Kara found out about Hot Dog when  copy of him and Simon entered her quaters and took Anders hostage.  The other Hot Dog was a sleeper agent who gets killed by this Hot Dog.  In the end of that story the Galactica Dualla sacrificed herself to defeat the Cylons who eventually surrender and get blown out the airlock except for Ellen and Admiral Adama.  I think Dualla being a Cylon does make sense if you think about it: in Valley of Darkness she was apparently bypassed by the Cylons and left with just a concussion while everyone else got massacared why was that if she was human.  Also there was a noteable change in her behavior after that episode: she used to be deeply in love with Billy yet after that she began to spend time and got together with Lee and after Billy sacrificed himself for her after crying about it for a minute she was at another man's side caring more about him then the guy she'd been with for nearly a year.  That just makes no sense.  I hope they explain who the other Cylons are soon I mean only a few have been revealed since the miniseries: D'Anna Biers and they didn't even know for months up a year afterwards, Simon (what a shocker! not) and Cavil which I guessed pretty quickly on and it was only confirmed for me when that other one showed up on Old Caprica (don't belive that phrase has been used before on either the show or forums but I'm using it now for the hell of it) and I honstly wasn't surprised though in that episode he did seem more sympathetic to the humans and said exterminating us was a mistake yet he now is the most outwardly aggressive towards the humns.  I can't wait to see next weeks episode I mean they left us off with the Galactica preparing to jump to New Caprica for the first time in 4 months since they left.  I'm glad that Sharon got the Launch Keys for those ships and learned that her baby might be alive.  Without the Launch Keys and the ships on the ground I don't think that the rescue of the civilans would be succesful since the other ships aren't coming and probably don't have enough room on them anyway and one of the biggest ships, Cloud 9, was destroyed by Gina in her final act of aggression and suicide since she won't ever be coming back exactly like she wanted.  I can't wait to see how Galactica will defend herself against 5 Cylon Basestars and their Raiders when she can barely hold off two (either Racetrack or Kat said that there was 5 in one of their planning briefings in Occupation or Precipe).  I think from the Promo commercials and information that i've dug up that Lee will come in to help witht the Pegasus even though he isn't supposed to.  Also these 4  episodes are more like a 4 part episode rather than two regular ones and a two-parter.  I just can't wait for next week but I guess I'll have to.

    That was right after the scene where Xena tells Sharon that Adama lied to her about her baby. Therefore, we are supposed to think that Adama is feeling guilty and that spoils the excitement for him.

    Why would Adama feel guilty? He has no idea about the conversation between D'Anna and Sharon. I think he was more like trying to get himself pumped up(or angry) for the mission at hand.

    I added a new allusion to the guide about the Pergamus Flats. That's the name of the Cylon execution area in the episode. There were some interesting residents of that town over the centuries. Take a LOOK.

    WOW...awesome ep, it just aired here in Canada! I know a lot of people are angry with Ellen, but I think what she did is very natural. She loves Saul, and who would ever want to lose the person they love most...

    I'm incredibly impressed with Sharon, but man she will have a rude awakening...Adama better get ready to hit the deck for that one...

    And...there's no way that Kasey is actually Kara's. She's juts way too old, and Hera shows that hybrids seem to develop at a normal/average rate! Somehow it seemed, ever so subtly, that Kara could accidentally end up bonding with the child. Unless, hoping again hope, she's just putting on a show for Leoben, bidding her time while figuring our an escape plan...

    Alas, BSG has me spellbound again...

    Incorrect. What she should have done was told Saul about the threat, and he could have just refrained from showing his face around for a while.

    Also, when that lone eyeball was on her there, I really thought he was about to shoot her. And my mind just pictured her coming back, revealing her Cylon nature. He should shoot her either way. Saul is now a die-hard soldier, and every soldier knows the punishment for treason.

    OK Chatter, I'll try to be diplomatic here, but I know from experience that when you're in love you do some pretty stupid things (I never said I thought what Ellen did was right, either strategically, or morally). She was responding to that part of her heart that could not bear to see her husband dragged off by the toasters...

    I'm not so sure Saul would be able to hide like that (and I don;t think he's a hiding kinda guy) especially in the midst of the coming rescue/evacuation...they need him in action.

    I don't really see Ellen as the loving sort. She's pretty much screwed Saul at every angle. She's slept around at every opportunity, she gets him drunk and fills his head with lies, she has gone behind his back and acted against his will on several occasions and colluded with the enemy to further her own agenda, despite how that would reflect on Saul later. No, I think the only one she loves is herself. As of the end of Exodus 1, she is only fearful because Saul is her last link at power and wealth. Well... except for the Cylons, of course.

    And, yes, Saul would never hide. He could, however, stealthily remain in one location, like that bunker they had going.

    I think Dualla being a Cylon does make sense if you think about it: in Valley of Darkness she was apparently bypassed by the Cylons and left with just a concussion while everyone else got massacared why was that if she was human.  Also there was a noteable change in her behavior after that episode: she used to be deeply in love with Billy yet after that she began to spend time and got together with Lee and after Billy sacrificed himself for her after crying about it for a minute she was at another man's side caring more about him then the guy she'd been with for nearly a year.  That just makes no sense. 

    First of all Dualla didn't just switch off her feelings for Billy and turn on to Lee. Before Billy went out and sacraficed himself there was a growing attraction between Lee & Dee. Remeber that L&D were out creeping when that hostage situation went down. The only reason Billy tried to play Rambo was because he recognized the competition for D's affection. Billy knew that Apollo was the "Alpha Male" and he was the "secretary". With that as the choice, Billy knew he couldn't compete, so he went out (Died) trying to prove he was as "Manly" as Apollo. You can't blame Dualla for him trying to do something he had not been trained for; remember she tryied to stop him. After the event Billy is dead and Lee is hanging on for life (after Kara SHOT him) in a hospital bed. With those options Dee chose Lee. Kara didn't stay with Lee, Dualla did! From that time on L&D were born!!

    As far as her being a Cylon; c'mon, there is no reason to believe this. I doubt that she was the only survivor of the area where the Cylons attacked. She was the only major character in the area. All the supposed changes in her personality can either be accounted for can be explained by the fact that she had survived a near death experience and was determined to follow her heart rather than her head (a common reaction to survival situations).

    i was a bit confused about Adama's reaction when he found out sharon had the launch codes. he slammed his fist on the desk like he was angry but it was probably exitement.
    That was right after the scene where Xena tells Sharon that Adama lied to her about her baby. Therefore, we are supposed to think that Adama is feeling guilty and that spoils the excitement for him.

    I actually think that adama is a cylon. Remember in season 1 the cylon that is with kara now told roslin that adama was a cylon then she threw him out of the air lock. It all seems to make sense.

    Adama isn't a Cylon.
