    An excellent and well written episode. It gave us strong character development, exciting twists, pulse-pounding action and some important story development. I really enjoyed how it started out with a slow-burn character development (Starbuck's time at the piano and Tyrol's temptation by Boomer) that slowly built into one of the more exciting conclusions of the series. We got Starbuck playing the Cylon theme song (strongly hinting at her father's true identity), Boomer betraying pretty much everyone on the Galactica and then making an exciting getaway that put the final nails in Galactica's coffin (that ship isn't going to last much longer) and what is likely the beginning of the end of Laura Rosalyn. Most importantly, this episode gave us at least the beginnings of the answers we have have been waiting for but with a level of believablitly and emotional investment that was largely absent in the two previous episodes.
