Haven't seen a single promo, but from the implications of last week this one seems like it will be a total bombshell.

This one could get very ugly. Hopefully both sides will give in on the issues. I don't want Adama toget hurt but I can't really agree with his position. I agree with Zarek but the guy is a bastard, albeit one who is fun to watch.

Is anyone else Pro-Zarek/Gaeta?

I can see both sides of the argument being right.

You know, I'm really looking forward for this show to be over. And I mean this in a good way.

Between the huge season and mid-season gaps I really want to finally see how it will all turn out and how the questions will be answered.

Oh well, not much more to go...

Not in the slightest. I'm actually surprised so many people are sympathizing with those dudes.

both sides seem to be half right . . . that's the tough thing about this show is that nothing is black or white . . .

Watched the 30sec preview this morning; can't wait for this one!

I wanna see Gaeta lose the rest of his limbs in a bloody massacre! :D


I think it's hard for us the viewers to be on the side of Zarek & Gaeta as we've always been on the inside as it were, but you can see why people of the fleet would stand with them, having not seen the whole picture from their perspectives

I don't know...I mean if you think about what the people in the fleet have been through, not having regular contact with 'good' cylons, it's pretty reasonable that they would be suspicious of any cylon help.

Edit to add: Ethros pretty much said what I was thinking, and beat me to the punch. This is what happens when I wait half an hour to respond ;)

Well good point plus the people of the Fleet probably don't know that

1) Zarek is a self-centered ass

You and Ethros make a good point. It's totally logical that the people of the fleet would feel that way. In fact, it'd be lame if they didn't.

But Felix and to some extent Zarek know better. That's why I don't buy it.

We (as "the viewer") see way more than what the fleet (fictional characters) sees. In that context I find the Quorom and even Zarek's reaction something I can understand and sympathise with.

Gaeta, not so much, because he's a bit closer to things.

It's hard to sympathize with anyone in this situation. Adama and Roslin have been ineffective leaders, misleading their people for "the greater good." Turns out the greater good was a lie. Zarek is an opportunist, and Gaeta is bitter and personally motivated, too. They may have a point, but the next question is, how can they do better than Roslin and Adama?

I'm calling it now, next week's episode, Alessandro Juliani and Richard Hatch get top billing in the credits.
