Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x16: "Deadlock"

Decided to go with "Average" for this one. It's a shame, really, because a lot of it is better than average, I think.
But what really pulls it down for me is the way Ellen goes on when she returns to Galactica. I understand that there would still be some of the old Ellen in there, and I can imagine that returning to the man you loved in two lives but who also killed you and who is/was expecting a child with one of your "children" must be quite confusing.
At the same time, I really have the impression that the "new" Ellen we'd been introduced to in "No Exit" would have gotten over it quicker, handled it with more grace and dignity. I think she simply slips too far here.
