    "Kara struggles with the foreboding prediction of the Cylon Hybrid, while Adama and the Colonial fleet face despair over their shocking discovery." - TV.com

    * According to Katee Sackhoff, this episode could have served as the series finale had further episodes not been made due to the writers' strike.

    * Before you watch this episode, be sure to catch the 10-part webisode series "The Face of the Enemy" if you haven't already. It's available to American viewers at Sci Fi Channel's website and on amazon.com. It's on YouTube as well. Canadian viewers can watch the full series on SPACE just before the premiere. You can discuss the webisodes here.

    I am so ready for this. Everyone involved knew they were in the home stretch. I know everything won't be tied up in a nice little bow, but RDM and co. have been quite good at delivering "event" episodes. I expect this one to kick significant ass.

    Nice pics :p

    Impatient to see the new episode.

    If you're interested, there's a good non-spoilery review here.

    About damn time! I'm so glad I only started watching the show this season, I don't know if I could've done these extended breaks over 5 years.

    By the way this was the synopsis of the episode Via the Comcast Digital Cable Guide. If this doesn't build the excitement I don't know what does.

    Anyone know if Scifi is Streaming the episode in the morning (Or afternoon for most of yous. ;) )

    Like the rest of you, I'm ready to rock tonight. Haven't thought about BSG much in the last few months, so I'm basically unspoiled, save for the one-page article in this week's TV Guide.

    Let's see that Final Cylon!

    Since Katee said that this episode could have served as a series finale, it makes sense that the final cylon would be revealed. Oddly enough, this never occured to me. For the last several months, I've had it in my head that we wouldn't find out until the end or near the end because a few cast members said they didn't know who the last cylon was even while they were filming one of the last episodes.

    We'll see. I have my guess as to who it is.

    It's been painful. I have been pretty much been ignoring BSG during the breaks because the wait has been so long. Now that we are starting up again, I can get back into being excited.

    I made the decision not to read spoilers for the last episodes, so whatever happens tonight, I guess I'll be suprised.

    Over the last weeks, I've rewatched all the episodes from the mini-series all the way through season 4.0, so I'm ready. :)

    So what else is new?

    I'll be out of town tonight, and thus testing my new DVR. I'm trying not to think about it. But I can't stop thinking about it.
