This was one tough episode for Tigh. With the commander on the brink of death, it's up to his XO, who isn't exactly known for his out of the box thinking, to take charge. And the first thing he does is lose the entire fleet. Things go from bad to holy-frak-how-will-they-ever-come-back-from-this worse. The hour just piles and piles on the bad, I was tense from start to finish.
It's interesting to note that Boomer completely forgot having ever shot the old man. I'm glad Tigh didn't kill her, cos despite everything, she's still one of the most intriguing aspects of the show. Tigh's assault on Boomer was pretty tough to watch though; I think it had more so to do with the fact she was already fairly injured from her attempted suicide. Does she have the ability for change like her caprica counterpart? Speaking of said cylon, where did she flee off to? I'm also glad Starbuck didn't kill Sharon. But it was a terrific moment when Helo tries to calm his best pal down.
We have another planet to hop to in between Caprica and the fleet – Kobal. Crashdown's inexperience causes him to split up his group and lose one of his men to a cylon attack (fairly gruesomely, i might add). It won't be long now before he loses another due to his incompetence as a leader. I wonder if tyrol will hand him his ass? I hope so!
Dee, and the rest of the Battlestar crew, may have been slightly relieved that Gaeta's daring plan to sync up with the fleet worked, but we still have a commander who is dying, some pretty important people stranded on a cylon-occupied planet and, oh yeah, a cylon trojan horse they have no clue about.
Gods, I love this show.
