Battlestar Galactica: Resurrection Ship (Part 2)
You know where the soap thing is going with Tyrol and Helo -- blanket party. There's an interesting exchange with the
Pegasus X.O., where he defends the actions of his fellow deceased officer with: "You can't rape a machine,
Another short exchange came later, when Adama asked Boomer why the cylons were targeting the humans. She reminds him of the speech he gave during the retirement (in the mini-series), that nobody ever asked if humans deserved to survive. "Maybe you don't," she answers.
The battles in space are some fine pieces of special effects. I have to say that it seemed almost too easy for the humans to take on so much cylon machinery -- even Apollo wasn't hit by a weapon. The destruction of the Resurrection ship was pretty brutal, as you could clearly see the broken bodies of cylons being thrown into space.
The "imaginary" Number Six tells Baltar that God will not forgive the deaths of tens of thousands of cylons. The imprisoned Number Six tells him that God forgives all. As Baltar recites a familiar speech from the last episode, just like that, the Number Six in Baltar's head was gone.
And what of Starbuck's speech about the Admiral? "Better off with her than without her?" I think to some degree that could mean that they're better off without the drunken X.O. in charge of the Pegasus. Though, as some people mentioned in the comments last week, the President should have promoted Adama to Admiral -- and finally, she does. And then Adama kisses her -- huh.
Just as with last week's episode, there's some great behind the scenes stuff happening at AOL's Battlestar Galactica page -- make sure you check them out!
Admiral Cain: "Frak you."
Number Six: "You're not my type."
