I voted excellent already just because it is NuBSG. I missed it last week and have been in withdrawal ever since then.

I want to see a slow mo bullet hit Gaeta right between the eyes.

Looking forward to this ep.

So what was up with the claw marks in the engine room after the jump was avoided? was there a dragon down there?

I voted Excrement! If there was a vote higher that that Id vote for it. Just based on the final 5 seconds alone...

Stellar episode. I really felt bad for Gaeta at the end. I wish they left him alone in a room with a cigarette and a gun instead of the firing squad.

Zarek on the other hand, showed his true colours in the end.

And I loved Narcho's little speech, it really summed up the whole situation - I thought maybe it would allow Adama to feel a little more sympathy for the mutineers.

Captain Kelly returning was a surprise and a joy (I expected him last episode so when it didnt happen I assumed he wasn't gonna show up).

And of course good old Romo back again. Can't go wrong.

Next episode looks very mythology driven, I can't wait!

Those gashes in the hull in the engine room have got to be foreshadowing something ...

Great episode.

What was the deal with Baltar and Gaeta at the end? Was it merely meant to show Gaeta was finally at peace now that he is going to die, or were they hinting at more?

sick episode. It didn't miss a beat.


This is what BSG was like in the first season, and most of the second season.

It's back.

My theory is: Galactica is dying.

I think it was Gaeta's final meal given to him before execution.

He probably asked for a smoke and some company, which he was given. And he and Baltar have a complicated history - that ranged from hero worship to outright hatred thanks to New Caprica. So it was interesting to see them having a final conversation - really very well written.


And yeah, I think Gaeta was happy to die - he's been so bloody miserable since he lost his leg I think he's glad to see it all end.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x14: "Blood on the Scales"

glad they wrapped this up and are getting back to the "core" mystery still remaining. If this had dragged out, i'd have been pissed.

The cracking in the engine is gonna be a problem. Galactica is on her last legs, doesn't look like they have much left before she just disintegrates out from under them. Dunno if that was a central section or one of the engine pods, but either way, stress fractures have that part about to come loose from the whole ship...

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x14: "Blood on the Scales"

Another excellent episode. That was a spectacular follow-up to last week. It didn't disappoint.

- I liked that Gaeta wasn't killed off in the retaking of the ship. We were given time to see him come to terms with what he did, THEN die. That happens so rarely in TV and movies.

- That Six model with the long hair was pretty easy on the eyes. I like that look.

- I'm glad they touched on Sam and Kara's relationship. We didn't get much about how she felt about him after finding out he was a cylon.

One question... What was that paper thing that was on Adama's chest when he was about to be executed in Baltar's dream?

I'm going to agree with the "Best two parter since Kobol's Last Gleaming" comment. Excellent stuff. The tension was there for this whole episode. After all this, I'm kinda sad to see Gaeta and Zarek go. They were two of the most interesting characters on the show, and the last couple episodes really made us love to hate them.
