  • The rebel Cylons and the Colonial humans react to Hera's kidnapping while the physical condition of the Galactica continues to deteriorate

    Have to say that this was another outstanding episode. No, it was not as pivotal as the previous episode nor will it be particularly memorable in and of itself. What it does, however, is weave more of the character's reactions into the final narrative. We need to see each of the characters slowly unraveling and dealing with the tragedies they have suffered. Seeing the effects on Helo and Athena as well as Adama and Rosalyn was truly gut-wrenching. This episode might have been quiet and a bit slow, but it was an expert set-up for the finale. We've seen the fuse slowly burning and now it is time for the fireworks.
