No Exit - A BSG Picspam Review

Sorry so late fellow BSG fans. Big week for me and I am just now sitting down to watching it all before this week's eppie. For those who know me, the interview at the Japanese consulate went really well, methinks despite the cold which has thoroughly kicked my ass all week and hopefully in July I will be headed overseas to teach. *crossing fingers* But enough about me. Its all about the Cylons and answers and icky Cavil this week. Yeah. As always spoilers if you haven't seen last week's episode, but since I am a week behind, I am sure you guys are just fine.

New title sequence. Ooh, an answer episode methinks. Even better when we get to see old school Centurions. They make my inner child all giddy like.

One was sacrificed. Did Ellen know?

I don’t think, no I know, I was an Ellen fan until now. I can’t imagine how it must feel to be resurrected. All of those memories and feelings come rushing back all at once. And for Ellen, that brutal knowledge of your sacrifice, of the things you have done, and that the man you have loved for centuries took your life.

This is one of the first time we have seen kindness towards the Centurions. Ellen doesn’t treat it like a dog or a slave. She gets s shiny gold star for that.

Bald Anders. I suppose its better than dead Anders. Though apparently he is now oracle Anders. Among bright stars…I’m lost. I am so going to have to watch this again to get all of his oracle stuff, though I am sure there is a transcript out there by now.

I’m so glad that Kara is there with him. It makes me love her even more because she could have gone a very different way. She could have hated him for being a Cylon, for being one of the things that destroyed everything. But she didn’t. She doesn’t care. She loves him anyway, even if it is in her odd way.

Hello John. Brother Cavil, I knew you would show up sooner or later even if it is in a flashback. *shiver* He gives me the wiggins, a testament for how creepy Dean Stockwell can make his characters. I totally loved him in Quantum Leap. *grin*

I think that depends on how you define things. Great line because that’s an important question in this series. What does it mean to be human. The Cylons bleed, think, and feel exactly like humans. They can even have children. And now they are mortal. Is there really that big of a difference? Does it matter?

After all I’ve seen it all before. Ick. From the look on her face she shares the sentiments. So Ellen created his model and then went horizontal with him. Granted not really by choice, she was trying to save Tigh at the time, but still….ewww. Shades of Oedipus much.

My poor Galactica. Its okay, Papadama and Chief will make you all better. And yes, sometimes I talk to my car as well. Or anything I am trying to coax to keep working and working well.

Yeah chief is back. I mean really back. He has a title and everything. Sir, I’m still a Cylon. So is my XO. I heart you Adama.

Ah, there is our wounded. I knew we wouldn’t get off that easy with the mutiny.

I remember everything. Cue the exposition.

All I can say is I hope I look as good as Kate Vernon does when I am her age. Suddenly, I am feeling the need to do situps.

Awww, poor little Cavil wants to be a machine and nothing more. Personally, I love my sleep. In fact, I could sleep the day away if given the chance. And I definitely need more of it. He still doesn’t understand. Vengeance, pride, stubbornness, arrogance and even his polluted form of justice, these are all human traits. Its quite funny that he wants justice for his Centurion forefathers when he is the one who was so willing to treat them like a lapdog. To perform lobotomies on them. He has no respect for them and certainly no sense of justice. Hypocrite. He just has a god complex.

Sad, he’s broken this eight as well, turned her into a shy and cowering little sycophant hand maiden.

Has he taught you the swirl? Score one for Ellen. Somehow I don’t think that John would be so willing to give up his libido in his quest to become a better machine. Look at the Centurions sweetie. They’re like Ken dolls.

Yeah, I would be giggling too if I thought I had to be married to Tory or shivering in disgust. Same thing.

They reinvented resurrection. Interesting. Confusing. My head is beginning to hurt. Like Sam's.

As a woman, I just have to say that maroon looks good on Jaime. Really good. This must be his shirt of Presidency. Cause you know it is coming.

I cannot imagine going back there after what happened to the Quorum. The blood on the desk, the holes in the walls.

You are the right one. I completely agree that he has such a hero/boy scout complex that he doesn’t always do the smart thing or the thing that needs to be done because he always wants to do what is right. That is why he had Kara back when he was CAG because she wasn’t afraid to do what needed to be done even when it was against the rules. But I think he makes a good opposite to the President as well, that they will keep each other in check and that will help the fleet in the end.

Just don’t jump her for a while. Which would be fine if Cavil and his cronies weren’t probably on their way because they are definitely coming. I wouldn’t loathe him so much if they weren’t.

We needed to warn them. Whoa, everyone is glowing. That happens sometimes Sam…when you’re on drugs. You’re high. Enjoy it. Unless of course you're brain hemorrhaging and then...well help!

Boxing isn’t permanent, not like number 7. We haven’t seen seven have we? Oooh. How do you destroy a model so completely?

I don’t want to be human. Whine, whine, whine. He’s like a petulant four year old in grandpa’s body.

Do you feel remorse? Who am I suppose to love? I love how the very next shot is Chief. Subtle…ummm, no.

I love you Tigh. Share the blame. There is no one person at fault. Everyone frakked up. Everyone had free will. Everyone chose the path that you are on, human or cylon. No one forced anybody to do anything.

Look on my non PC lightbox that you are a Mac and I am completely making up the brain injury stuff. I love that even when Sam asks for more time, Kara isnt willing to risk his life for the answers even if those are answers about herself. She lurves him.

I know I always want a scotch when I wake up in the morning.

They don’t even know about the colony. Wha- What? Colony? Roanoke? The LOSTies?

How it must feel to see your creation go so very very wrong.

Hmm, I wonder if he means head people?

Ah, pirate daddy Saul is kinda cute. Though Six/Tigh is still kinda weird and hard for my head to wrap around.

Ah so seven is Daniel. Kara’s father maybe. Daniel was an artist. Kara’s father was a pianist and plus Kara paints. Hmmmmmmm…

Cavil the Sadist. Didn’t see that one coming. I cant wait to see what perfection looks like on the inside. Just what a serial killer would say.

They’re hoping for a musical. So are we. Especially if the Centurions do some Rockette moves. You know it would be made of awesome. Sadly, however...Sam isn't int here. Maybe he's having a dance dream sequence at the Opera house.

What a great episode. It has its flaws (I could have done without all the heavy exposition in one episode, though I know they will come back and explain better or they damn well better). Man Cavil is going to be pissed when he finds out both his hand maiden and his mommy have left him. He might even cry though it will probably be more like a temper tantrum.

Whoo hoo. Now on to this week's episode.
