    I watched up to 2x8 and now I'm confused. Didn't they find Earth? How did they get back? Why is this Earth thing not addressed in 2x8? All very confusing.

    I supppose you mean "they found earth" as in the part where they found Kobol, went to the tomb of athena and inserted the arrow of Apollo..

    They got showed the *way* to earth. They were basically standing in a planetarium. They have a map now, but have said it will take a very, very long time to get there.

    I did a little searching and I think it's the M8 Nebula (believed to be about 5,200 light years from Earth). Of course, with their FTL drives it certainly wouldn't take them that long to get here!

    But first they gotta find the nebula. And find the right star cluster so to speak.

    They 'found' the nebula (probably visible from the colonies or something) they have to go the the nebula look around so they know where the stars are do some serious maths to calculate the position where the stars will form the shape of the constellations shown in the tomb and volia! Earth

    Wow, that IS simple, maybe they'll have it all fig'd out by the time next season arrives, or maybe the Wraith Hive ships will have beaten them.

    I hope that they do go to Earth for reasons I wont say (spoilers). This season's finale, left me going, "what the hell?"

    Cant wait for season 3.

    I'm kinda hoping they don't find earth for at least another season. There is so much to do with the series without bringing earth in to it.
