Frakk, that was an awesome episode if I do say so myself.

There was some great stuff in there....

1. Baltar's attempts to plead with the hybrid had me laughing to myself.
2. Baltar talking with the centurion over class systems.
3. Baltar finally confessing about being responsible for the attack.
4. D'Anna joking about Roslin being the final cylon.
5. The Roslin/Elosha scenes were fantastic.
6. Roslin's Head Elosha.
7. 'SPLOSIONS!!!!!!!!!WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ( The basestars slowly disintegrating in the nuclear blast was a nice touch)

Also, the Adama/Roslin fans get a treat.

Questions it answered: Who jumped Pike's Raptor back.

Questions it raised: Did Boomer die? And the rest of the non-rebel cylons?

I'm sure there's more but right now my head is in the process of bursting from next week's preview.

On a side note, the strategy on how to attack the Hub with the heavy raiders towing vipers had me thinking the whole time of the tactics of the Allies during WWII dragging gliders behind  DC-4's. But hey, thats just me.

Edited for not knowing about DC-4's and B-52's.

That was a good episode!
btw, when you mean B-52's... you mean, the DC-4's dragging the gliders.  B-52 was created after WWII.
I was surprised of seeing good ol' Elosha in Rosilin's head!

Didn't pike jump his own raptor? A dying thing.

And wasn't there another Raptor someone previously found that had a dead guy in it?  I don;t have the old episodes...but is there some time-loop thing?

Either way - it's got to be very significant.  You don;t waste footage.

Yeah Baltar Finally found someone to talk to, the fact that the Centurion seemed to be listening was classic.

Hmmm...just checked internet...it was Pike's Raptor.

So maybe it was simply a way for the show's writers to detail when things are going on in two differents areas.  

Raptor Jump at attack
Raptor recovered (last epsiode) before Adam goes to read a book.

But how does he find Rosalyns book in the Raptor????

The beginning of the episode started with caption "Two Days Ago" so we saw pike dead in the last episode and before he got there in this one.

At the very beginning of the episode we see a black screen with the caption

"Two Days Ago"

So we are to assume that this episode is happening at the same time as Sine Qua Non was. This is furthered by the fact that the hybrid seems upset early in the episode over Natalie getting shot.

And Roslin was sitting in Pike's Raptor during the episode reading. She said she needed "familiar surroundings" or something to that extent. I guess she left it in there.

And I guess I do mean DC-4's. Thanks for the correction.

EDIT: What Wiley said. :p

I guess it's still open whether Roslin is a Cylon or not, Just a big tease.

Thank you...so it was a 'literary' device to keep track of time and spur Adama to have hope.  Cool enouogh.  A Message in a Bottle thing.

thanks again.

Interesting to note that there are trained cylon pilots.

I almost started to suspect that something was going to start between Helo and the random Eight.  That might prove interesting with Athena stuck in the Brig.

Also, there are going to be two presidents when the Basestar gets back.  I wonder how that'll play out.

Maybe it was just me though, but I didn't think that the CGI was up to snuff.  Especially when Baltar was in the corridor flirting with the centurion (And c'mon, you know he would if he got the chance...), the explosion looked to me like something you'd see in Andromeda or some such.  The battle scenes seemed rushed too.  And was that flak I saw during the fight?  If so, from where?

And I too LULed when Baltar was trying to talk with the Hybrid.
Baltar: "I'm its friend.  It understands me!  It likes me!"
Roslin: "It's not going to sleep with you, Gaius)
Baltar: "Frak off!  Look what I'm doing!  I'm focusing on it!  Look!  'Whats in the Opera house! Talk to me, dammit! DO... YOU... SPEAKEE... ANY.. ENGLISH!!!'"
Roslin: [groan]
Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!

Definately a good episode, moved a bit slow at times, but necessarily.
Lots of new ships and scenarios for sure. Awesome stuff!
Nothing bothers me I\'m already disturbed.

I think Helo is doomed. Everywhere he goes now, there is his wife watching him.
He's in trouble.

Hot and cold running wives 24/7....
He'll be glad if he gets killed.
He may start developing a death wish or worse yet, has a head Baltar telling him to do them all :p
