When Starbuck came back at the end of last season, I thought the writers had definate plans for her, but now I am not so sure after watching last weeks episode. She is back to full duty without any mention about her coming back from the dead. Didn't Adama say he did not believe in miracles? Now she is back on full duty as CAG with no questions asked.
The reason I asked this topic is I am not so sure when she "died" last season that it was meant to be temporary. Katee Sackhoff was slated to be Bionic Woman when starbuck died, and if the show took off (and since it was produced by David Eick, the producer of BSG, they probably believed it would) she would not be back, and that would be the end of her character. They do have a history of killing off characters (ex. Billy) when they get "better" jobs. (and a network show with more money is a better job), so it would not be a total shock if they did not expect her back.
Since Bionic Woman was cancelled, Starbuck is back, but considering that many consider her storyline this year to be below average, I am wondering if anyone else thinks maybe the writer's wrote themselves into a corner with her reappearance and do not know how to resolve it. Her being back to full active duty without any discussion about how she came back from the dead seemed strange.
