Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x14: "Blood on the Scales"
Death by Firing Squad is simply more dramatic.
That was great! And good riddance to Gaeta - but Zarek should just have been shot in the face out of hand, or quietly disappeared- unlike Gaeta he's not military so shouldn't qualify for courtmartial and the firing squad. It gives him too much honour.
Still wish Zarek had belted that out. I have to the writer credit for going for the ironic 'It stopped' though.
