Given that I only had three precious hours of my BSG left when I sat down to watch tonight...

I'm not really happy with what I saw.

Not unhappy, but...damn.

It seems like R.D. Moore is going to leave us with a staggering number of questions unresolved. I cannot see how all of this is wrapped up next week.

Moreover, I am finding it very hard to accept that this show will be over next week.

It's like next week is a double header vigil. I've moved past denial, but I'm still caught between anger and bargaining.

Depression and acceptance will be for after next Friday - not before.

I thought it was a fabulous episode, well crafted and entertaining. And if it had aired 6+ months ago, it would have been great.

I agree with you though that with so much up in the air, with so much to resolve that it felt like a waste of time.

Well, I am intrigued to see if it can be wrapped up or if my speculation that Caprica is really just a continuation of the same show under a new name.

Well, in fairness, I'm not being accurate.

The Cylon made for TV BSG Movie - "The Plan" is also coming. And I expect that will asnwer a lot of questios. The final piece of the puzzle, as it were.

Still.

*sigh*
 


Most of the flashbacks did relate to something that was going on in the present, such as Ander's. But a bunch just simply showed us more about the characters. I felt many of those flashbacks should have been shown a few episodes ago. Especially Roslin's when it became clear she was dying. Though I do like the flashback with Gaius and his father Julius, but even that could have been shown last episode, back when Caprica Six told Gaius he hasn't changed.

It's interesting that this is also the first time, they've ever gone to a place near a black hole. Maybe the Galactica might end up as a lost ship frozen in time, because of that...

But then again the ending could include a Leoben model sitting on a porch in front of his farm with a bunch of his pregnant human wives.

Whatever the result is, there's probably going to be something left open in the ending.
 

It was a good episode, especially from a dramatic/acting perspective. Everything down to the Specialist practically in tears at stripping out the launch catapults on Galactica, to a very dying Roslin making her symbolic stand with those making the Last Stand, to Baltar finally admitting he's not trustworthy and there is no reason for people to listen to him.

I really don't think Caprica can be a direct continuation, since it's set 50 years earlier and revolves around the creation of the Cylons (or at least the ones from the Colonies). It's more of a prequel.

The spin-off movie The Plan will probably answer a lot of the Cylon-related questions, being the story of the attack on the Colonies retold from the Cylon point of view.

I don't think they are trying to answer every single question and tie it all up nice and neatly, but I hope they at least answer a few of the big questions. Like what exactly is Starbuck? (Some sort of Angel is my supposition, like the "Beings of Light" from the original series) Battlestar Wiki is reporting that the finale is a total of 3 hours, so next weeks might be a 2-hour finale, or it's got two more parts, at least that's a little more time to explain stuff in.

Last night was part one of the 3 hour finale. Next week is parts 2 and 3.

Thanks. That clears up most of my concerns. :)
