As excited as I am for this episode and the finale, I find I am not as excited as I expected. I think it's partially due to the fact that I have (unreasonable?) overwhelming expectations for the 'Daybreaks' (particularly part 2, really). In my eyes, if it is not the greatest episode in the series and knocking on the door of greatest-in-TV-history it will be an utter disappointment. Anyone who's watched The Shield's final episodes might also be wary of whether or not BSG's 'Daybreak' will be able to come close. The 'Possible Kill Screen'/'Family Meeting' combo was absolutely sublime and completely overshadow any other finale I've ever seen (yes, including The Wire's).
That being said, I think I have expectations different than a lot of people. There's nothing that necessarily must
happen to ensure my enjoyment. It just needs to be downright incredible at whatever it chooses to be.
