  • The shocking part had nothing to do with Starbuck or the Cylons.

    Ok, so we were all naive enough to think that Starbuck finding her own body or finding that the cylons were the 13th tribe were the really big parts. But no: Dee, after having a great day with her friends and family, shoots herself because she feels no hope for herself or humanity. This episode just may have been the worst-and best-part of my night. I mean, it was so surprising to see her just pull out that gun from out of nowhere and put it to her head. I've rarely seen a show be so gusty as to show a character kill themselves off just like that. The suicide is so realistic; she had probably had this planned out for the entire day. Some people may think this was way too graphic even for BSG; those people must realize that for this show to work, it must be real. Why shouldn't someone who's lived with such loss and despair want to kill themselves to spare themselves even more of it?
