I thought that scene was dumb; just as a general metaphor for "I can't keep Starbuck" with...a bird. Look its not that it didn't make sense, its that it was corny. Okay, its what we feared most: a Sopranos-ending for Starbuck; "isn't it great if we leave it more mysterious?" NOOOOOOOOOOOO. Yikes. ugh Really, it doesn't make sense that EVERYTHING Baltar was through, being President, etc. was directed to THIS moment, though of course, they NEVER planned out the series. Shut up. Just...shut up. We expected more than that...we were *led to believe* there would be more than that. I *don't* believe in "higher powers" and wanted the hardcore military scifi show there used to be, like a murder mystery novel, it can't end with "maybe an angel killed that guy".... Moore confirms what I already assumed but he was afraid wasn't clear: the Colony got knocked out of orbit by the nukes and will be swallowed by the black hole. I was honestly confused by that and I'm happy he answered it: No, the Cylons didnt' get resurrection technology back, Tyrol interrupted the download by stopping to kill Tory. Then the Colony got hit with nukes and is heading towards a black hole. Originally, they were going to be on the upper level of CIC (with Anders I guess) and Tigh would fling Cavil over a railing. Instead, Dead Stockwell got the idea that Cavil is thinking "we don't have resurrection technology, we don't have Hera, and the Cylon Homeworld is about to get sucked into a black hole. We're doomed. That's it, I give up" and shoots himself. What I don't understand is, why don't they just grow more Cylons in vats, like they've BEEN doing? maybe the "humanoid Cylon factories" were all on the Resurrection Hub/Cylon Homeworld? Oh, and both McDonnell and Olmos' final scenes for their characters, were also the last ones they shot. Ultimately, his explanation of "The Music" was the same as they told us TWO YEARS AGO at the end of season 3 : "it's the universal collective unconscious filtering down to us, just as they wear western clothing, speak English, and have many other culturally similar traits to us"....okay the English-speaking can be explained by "Indo-European mutated from English, then back into English" but really all of the other cultural-specific stuff. "This culture is the one that gave birth to ours… [All the slang and cultural stuff,] we get that from them, not the other way around. " Well, its finally over. I hope people remember it more for the groundbreaking seasons one and two, than the later spiritual stuff when they were just making it up as they went along.
