You've gotta be kidding

did you SEE what Zarek did?
Yeah! He added to the overall drama while doing the colonies a favor by taking charge (unlike that coward Adama).
it was a favor to kill the quorum? wtf

Adama a coward? wtf
It was wrong to kill them and a low point for Zarek, which is saying a lot. But in the end it probably will be good for the colonies. The quorum was filled with dipshits.

The Prime Hybrid also said they would find Earth "on the wings of an angel." Sounds to me like that's the rebel baseship. IMO, Galactica will be lost in a battle with Cavil's forces and the rebel baseship will carry the fleet to Earth.
You know I like that idea.

Why would they go back to earth?

Remember, Ron Moore already said that the dead planet was earth and there will not be some other planet they find which really is earth. The "wings of an angel" were the wings from Starbuck's ship, as it was her crashed ship that lead them to earth.

Although they will not land on another planet called "Earth", there is a chance they will find a new planet to call Earth. So it would be Earth in the sense that the Colonials decided to call it that.

Except that they already found Earth. Wasn't RDM adamant that what they found was Earth. Wings of angel = Starbuck.

I never said they would go back to Earth. Rather, I said that they would find Earth "on the wings of an angel."

Read more carefully. There can be more than one Earth. There can be more than one fulfillment of the words "on the wings of an angel." That's standard to prophetic statements in literature. People around this forum need to be little less overliteral, and it wouldn't hurt to bone up on the difference between sense and reference.

So what was up with the claw marks in the engine room after the jump was avoided? was there a dragon down there?
I think that is a crack in the hull structure.

Read more carefully? Good advice.

I did read carefully which is why I put the part about RDM in my post. RDM said they will not find another earth because that would, in his opinion, betray the audience too much.

I'll just say this and leave you all to pat each others' backs: the way Admiral Gaeta and my president were treated near the end of this episode was frakking outrageous.

The quorum bought it! OMG, they killed Dr. Fraiser again! You bastards! (oh, that was the other show with the other mass execution of a committee) The killers even bothered to close all the corpses' eyelids, too. More presentable to Gaeta that way.

Romo killed someone. Dude's HARDCORE.

I couldn't remember who Kelly was

I found this one a tad underwhelming, perhaps because the safe thing to do was to have Adama and Roslin win and that's what happened. They didn't off Tigh like I figured.

Also, Laura's refusal to handle her duties is what gave fuel to this munity. Now she's the righteous avenger? It only took how many lives to snap her out of quittersville?
