Syfy (ended 2010)
I looked too and ur right i didn't see her in the cockpit either. You have to look really quick though so I'm just wondering if maybe she wasn't in there when they filmed it but they never expected us to look close enough to realize it.
|The trouble with these kind of series, where they have to extend the plot developments and action over 20 episodes, is that many episodes can get kind of stale and boring with not a great deal happening. Most of season 3, for me, has been like that. This was one of those episodes though where you sensed something significant was going to happen, and it did. Whether Starbuck's dead or not (and I think she is - all the people coming up with contrived plotlines that would see her in some way survive that explosion are just grasping for straws, imo) it was at the very least a pretty brave move on the part of the writers and whether I like a character or not, the worst thing for me is just having the show plodding along for episodes at a time so I welcome this. |
I think we will see Kara again in some form. There was to much build up of the great destiny to end her the way they did. The final five theory is interesting, and a possibility. The thoughts of the Leoben in the heavy Raider either for a ressurection or a rescue are interesting possiblities as well. The cloning idea has similar possiblities. I don't like the idea of bringing her back in another body, it seems like a cheesy way to write an actor out of the series. I am really hoping they don't bring the Ship of Lights back. I think that woud be the end of the believability of the series. Speculations aside, I am hoping the rest of this season will be better without her, the love triangles and depression was getting old fast. I am looking forward to seeing how Balter's Trial unfolds. So far this season has been a bit disappointing compared to last. They had ended last season at such a strong point and had so much potential that they only partially capitalised on with the webcasts, and then wrapped up new caprica in 2 episodes, when it could have kept interest for most of the season.

It seems to me like they originally planned to do that, but changed their minds (maybe they thought it wouldn't work or there was studio pressure) and just kept some of the styorylines they were going to use like the love rectangle, the labour dispute. Even the biological weapon could be a New Caprica leftover storyline.
