I'm seriously thinking that she's Iblis.

Why not? They changed the gender of 'Starbuck' so why not Iblis as well?

Wow, folks, I'll need to watch that again before making a judgement. However, if this episode is any indication, the rest of the season will be explosive and tragic.

The ending was terrible considering how wonderfully sad the rest of the episode was.

The Centurion robots they built? One of the heads was found beside the remains.

Re: "Sometimes a Great Notion" Live Commentary

That makes my brain hurt.

So let me get this timeline right:

- We start in Kobal. 12 tribes go to the colonies, 1 leaves and goes to Earth. THe one that leaves and goes to earth are cylons.
- These cylons build robots, who destroy the Cylons.
- Our friends back in the colonies also make robots, who destroy them.
- They escape and find their way back to Earth to find the 13th tribe.

So, if the 13th tribe is cylon, then so are the 1-12th tribes. thus everyones a cylon?

That or only the tribe that went to Earth were Cylons. Maybe Kobol made cylons, and that cylon race settled Earth. While everyone else, the other 12 tribes were the humans of Kobol who went and formed the colonies.

So that would mean the idea of a cylon nation rising up against humans happened on Kobol, Earth, and the Colonies.

Elements of the Kobol survivors/refugees?

And if we stick with the "cycle" and we go with Roslin's comments as she was burning the prophecy. Then our candidates are: Roslin or Adama leading a fleet to wipe out the Cylon homeworld.

Re: "Sometimes a Great Notion" Live Commentary

How do we compare the fact that the humans where able to find Earth via that holodeck on Kobal then? Or the trail left by the 13th tribe to prevent modern Cylons from finding Earth?

In the first, it would require the 13th tribe to come back to Kobal at some point to leave the clue. Why leave the clue at all, what would be the point? Why build the tempel of the five on the Alge Planet and not on Earth?

I think we are probably looking at a situation where these three planets are being recycled every 4,000 years or so. They are caught in a temperal loop without the temporal loop. Only so many planets can support life and for whatever reason the humans, cylons, and machines are being guided in this loop over and over and over again to the amusement of Bill Murrey.
