all this has happen before ....and sadly it may never happen again.
IMHO this i was one of the finest chapters in the bsg series. I love that ron,jane and david connected the missing dots and we finally got some answers.
i will admit i was surprised that the cylons had a bit of a strong hold right in the galactica itself. cavil could pull the strings and no one knew the difference. i love that simon,and boomer both couldn't complete their missions as cavil intended maybe the five did make the 7 models more human then he realized.
as for the beginning the attacks on the colonies was brilliant especially the CGI and how it was depicted on the ground seeing dead bodies and buildings burning really hit home.
and finally you can't beat how the story surrounded the five.... cavil expected them to die and then thank him for making them realize that humans are not worth saving. but frak was he wrong..Ellen slapped cavil in the face with her comment about how changing people is wrong. tory survived the nuclear strike. saul and sam were safe and not realizing that their were part of a bigger plan that never came to forwishen.
overall 10/9 it was only missing what happen in season 3-4
