    OMG! GAETA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    O.k. i'm over here so excited i'm about to frakking explode!!! ...3...2....1....BOOM!

    Alright, i'm o.k. now. I just watched both webisodes and there were great and I cannot wait till the 17th for the next one. I also have a spoiler, but I dont know how to do the spoiler thingie that everyone does.

    SPOILER ALERT!!!

    When the 8 was asking if Gaeta recognizers her I know why. PM me if you wanna know. Its just too juicy to ruin it for some of you.

    This convinces me even more that Gaeta should be a serious candidate for the final cylon, but I still think it's my girl D. Poor Felix looked so haggard and worn, but is that because he is addicted to the meds or is he using the meds to sleep or to stay awake? The kiss with his new BF was sweet and not a biggie. I hope the new BF doesnt eat it in the webisodes. what a waste that would be. Maybe Gaeta goes crazy or he has to kill the others? I dont know, but I dont want sweet Felix to be made out as some nutjob villian.



    If you want to put a spoiler, just write *spoiler* and */spoiler* (Replace the * with brackets) and write what you want in between.

    I have to say the webisodes are looking pretty good so far. I just wonder how can people start dying on that tiny Raptor and no one knows why.

    I completely forgot about the new Webisode. I'll have to go over to scifi.com and check it out.

    I thought it would be around noon on the day of each release.

    More on the first webisode. I mentioned the counter. I don't think it's a jump clock, as the second webisode showed, that's how many minutes of exygen that's left in the raptor. Gaetta seems to be the last one concious, bloodied, and using his last 23 minutes to write down the following (as clearly as I can see it on my laptop..)

    Blue

    Roe

    Hichcock

    Kim, Phillip

    Mahm G2-ping 1524-043

    Ehle, Zohef 2432-036

    Mayoth Shauns 0456-532

    Blue, Steven 3449-943

    Fish, Stacy 1967-037

    Rox, Lioythe 0133-429

    There are likely typos. As I said, paused little screen and Gaetta's handwriting (which is better than my chicken-scratch) Still intriguing. Wonder what that list means?

    Also in the 2nd webisode, it's apparant that both 8s are pretty agitated about Cavil's fleet finding them. This infers there are Cavil models left and they're chasing them. Do you think that the Cavils know that 4 of the final 5 have been discovered. Do they care? They still seem to me to be acting the role of Captian Ahab.

    Didnt Gaeta have a list or something when they were on New Caprica? Is that the list of resistance fighters?

    The third webisode seems to infer that. It doesn't seem that way to me though. Why would Gaetta spend the last minutes of his life recording that info on paper?

    Then again, we're shown that the 8 that recognizes Gaetta was the same one that handed him a list on New Caprica. Gaetta was able to get most of his information just from his proximity to Baltar's office. I would have assumed at this point, rebel leaders, those on a death-list, would have been gotten from there without the benefit of some clandestine relationship with a Cylon.

    Why would an 8 on New Caprica be handing any kind of information to this human? Could it be they recognized Baltar as an ineffectual leader and some among the Cylon community were grooming Gaetta for the position or recognized in him something that would improve the chances of their mission? That list, whatever it is could be (and most probably is) something else.

    Is that Boomer?

    I just love the speculation!

    I agree with AndreasOS, that the "soft" 8 is probably the 8 that was used alot towards the end of season 4.0, but the 'Hard' 8 isn't Athena. She's wearing a cylon flightsuit, not a colonial uniform.

    In the 3rd webside however it is shown that the "soft" 8 and Gaeta were connected back on New Caprica.

    That still kind of fits with this. She told Helo that she got curious about Athena and him, so she copied one of Athenas downloads. Maybe she's been sympathetic to the humans from way back when. We know that not all the Cylons wanted to pursue the Fleet. Caprica Six and Boomer started a movement within the Cylon hierarchy to stop chasing the fleet and concentrate on their own destiny (Downloaded - Season 2). Maybe the "Soft 8" is a follower of that train of thought.

    With all this "Hard 8", "Soft 8" talk going on, I can't wait to see the "Hard Six" that Adama used to talk about rolling...

    A Hard 6 in Craps: The player wins if the dice show 3 and 3. The bet is lost if the dice show 4, 2 or 5, 1 the bet is also lost if any combination that makes 7 is rolled. A hard 6 pays 9 to 1.

    episode 4

    So that list was a list of prisoners and the 8 in the raptor was an 8 on new caprica offering her help to release them. Can she be trusted?

    She also said on the raptor "I know how to get us back, I'll tell you (gaetta) how when the rest of them are asleep"

    Hmmm

    (Sorry, I won't put the text in "Spoilers" partly because I don't know how to do that but because the title of this denotes a discussion of the S4 webisodes. Don't mean to be mean, but you shouldn't be looking here if you don't want to see a discussion upon which the subject is all about!)
