If this episode doesn't make significant headway into Starbuck's storyline to the point where they reveal who and what she is, this episode's highest grade from me will be an Average. We have 4 episodes left, 3 if we discount the season finale which will probably be the showdown between the Fleet and Cavil's Fleet. Time to start "knowing the Truth".

I think the USA will find out tonight, and hopefully me tomorrow, the following: -

1. Starbuck is Daniel's daughter.
2. She is therefore a hybrid like Hera.

It would tie up all the little tidbits we have heard about Starbuck throughout the series.

I'm not all that wrapped up in "knowing the truth" about any of this stuff. I just want to see where humanity/Cylons in general and each character in particular winds up at the end of the story. I care, for example, a great deal more about whether Boomer lives or dies than about why Kara had to burn her own corpse.

Another Voyager remake.
We will see Caprica Six exploring dating with help from Doc Cottle

I still can't believe we're going to sit through another "Frakkin'" skinjob trial! [/Tigh]

Lets hope its not as boring as last week but looking at the promo im not hoping for much. Im not interested in Boomer.

This one looks good. I'm looking forward to what looks to be Tyrol's big episode. I understand all the hate and wailing that's been going on lately regarding everyone's beloved Chief, but I happen to think he is one of the more subtle and fascinating character arcs of the entire series. I am very impressed in particular with how his identity dilemma in 4.5 has been handled.

Time for some more payoff, especially on the Kara front, and hopefully with Boomer, too.

Seconded. Regarding Boomer, I think she will survive this episode but I'm not happy about the way I suspect things will turn out:

I doubt there will be a trial, in the end.

Oh I understand what you guys are saying, but it's been 2 years (+) since Maelstrom and in BSG Season length, it's about equivilent to one full season. I too want to see where everyone ends up, but this is being billed as a Kara Heavy episode and we haven't had much of those lately. It's time to reveal the big secret and then get consequences to that going into the finale. If this episode doesn't do that, than I will be very disappointed.

Boomer has barely even been in the series since "Rapture", while Starbuck got the entire Demetrius storyline pretty much to herself. She doesn't lack airtime.

Yeah, but I'm not sure Boomer really deserves an entire episode. I mean, it's not like she's critical to the story...

I suspect the Starbuck arc and the Boomer arc might span this and 'Islanded' next week leading in to the 'BIG FINISH', they may well both play important parts in whatever the ultimate resolution of this thing turns out to be...
