    Default One thing to love about tonights episode

    Roslin finally getting her very long over due "comeupance".

    that alone made it worth the wait.
    That human piece of incompetent garbage currently holding the office of President of the USA is not in any way my president, I can't support a born failure. Same reason i was against the last nitwit.

    wow
    Spoiler:
    I totally did not see that thing about earth coming, but makes sense with the cylons always saying "It all has happened before, it will all happen again"

    i soo didn't see dee offing herself

    but i wonder if she'll be back.

    if the planet was a cylon planet it stands to reason that there's a resurrection place there. if dee was one of the 5, she'd resurrect.

    a resurrection place could explain kara as well

    it wasn't a surprise to see that she was dead. Knew that was gonna happen.

    but i wonder if the 5 left this planet, tracking down the other cylons and humans, knowing that earth was gonna be destroyed, but they left behind a fail safe of some sort. a failsafe that a resurrectd dee will know how to activate.

    that's why kara was sent back, in a form they'd recognize and trust

    So it wasn't definitively stated she was a toaster, but thats what everyone thinks? I knew the moment that clue with her on the bike was posted that she was the Final Cylon.

    The suicide part also makes sense if the prophecy is to be taken into consideration.

    another theory....theyre ALL cylons.

    but there are two kinds, the ones made by a creator, and the ones the cylons made for themselves

    the 5 were made by a creator, the 7 are cylon 2.0

    I realized what Dee was going to do about 30 seconds before she did it, right when Gaeta walked out. Still it's sad to see her go

    And if Ellen is the 5th, then what the frak is Starbuck?

    Damn.

    And completely relevant to your idea, Sky...

    Dee's first name is a literal translation of

    "she who will rise up again."

    Wow.

    That's all I've got really. Wow.

    I didn't see Dee's demise coming.

    And I was shocked to who was the last of the 5.

    I wonder what the final five had in common that linked them back on Earth. And I wonder why they were so special among the other residents that allowed them to survive.

    Earth was a planet of Cylons?? Oh my, I hope the time line of events will be explained. Does anyone think they know the string of events?

    Well with Ellen being affirmed as the 5th, Kara and possibly Dee, would either be other ancient cylons who went into the same "ressurection project" as the 5, or there is something "spiritual" going on and Kara is the grim reaper incarnate.

    I liked how they showed more objects akin to earth as we know it (but at the same time, so did BSG with many other object we use today.) Also, notice how they never showed the moon or the continents as we know them? The Cylons could have come from our Earth (meaning this isn't earth). Or else we are all cylons according to Colonial biological classification... argh, this is so confusing! Yet so good at the same time.

    I loved the flashbacks to earth that the 5 had, especially Anders playing All along the watchtower as a song. (further hinting this is our real earth, or takes place after people left our earth for that planet).

    Still, some of this is still speculation. I wonder when anyone else will discover who Kara really is?

    What a great episode. What can I say about all the thing reveal in this episode that I didn't real see coming.
    I didn't expect Kara to find her viper on earth along with her dog tags. That was actually surprising to me, I can also venture a guess on why she lied to Lee about losing the transmittion. The scene of her burning the body was interesting.
    What to say about Dee killing herself that I did not see coming.
    The talk scene between Tigh and the Adama was good, it seems that in some ways they came to an understanding.
    The 13th tribe was a tribe of Cylons, I have to admit that I had really thought about, although I didn't want to believe it but in all honest it made scene. This tribe took a different road after leaving Kobol. Before I always wonder why. Now I think we know the answer.
    The final Cylon, the fifth, Ellen Tigh, I have to admit I was wrong I didn't think it was Tigh wife, well that was shocking to me, I thought it was some one else.
    One last question that I wish could be answer. Who the heck nuked Earth?
    Was it humans or other Cylons, I guess we will find out later in the season.

    Yeah, when dee cried with jax games in her hand on the beach there when she found it, having a personal flash back, like chief and anders did. She then knew she was a cylon. Kara is also a cylon as we found out. Ellen is a cylon. "This has happened before and will happen again". The 13th tribe were all cyclons. Machine and organic-hybrid cylon's. Obvious blew themselves up. So it leaves me to believe that it is possible that everyone is a cylon perhaps and there really aren't any humans?

    so we are all cylons.

    I got to wondering if this is some dream thing, with one or all of them remembering this Starbucks, viper, could, and I stress could have crashed 2000 years ago, given they found in tact bones near the shoreline. But that also doesn't really explain the transponder, unless it was a recent crash, so it probably was. But it is shaping up to look like everyone is a cylon.

    I'm not sure what to think. Going to have to watch it the 2nd time around to absorb it all.

    I'm sorry to see Dee go. I always liked her character and I was leaning toward her being the 5th.

    Speaking of the 5th, whats up with Ellen being the 5th? I mean it was somewhat foreshadowed in the first season. So all the inhabitants of Earth were Cylons? That means they came from Kobol. So did Kobol have its own war between Cylon and Human and the 12 tribes went to the Colonies and the 13th went to Earth? Maybe left over humans from Kobol attacked Earth, the 5 flee to the Colonies, have found that humans once again invented Cylons. So the 5th create the skinjobs? and the cycle begins again?

    Not sure what to make of Starbuck? If she was Cylon, they would have detected that when she came back. They were able to tell all the skeletons were Cylon. Since Starbuck came back, does that mean Ellen is somewhere on Earth? When Tigh killed her, she beamed back to Earth and was resurrected? Or are there other Cylon's roaming Earth?
