Yeah, that was a great ep. I just am not patient to wait another week to watch the next episode.
My take is that the cylons truly want to be loved. Simple, but it's at the core of what makes us human....
Speedermike, that's an interesting take on the Cylons. I just kind of wonder if they're incompatible with their own kind in some ways... but why would they need to when there are several copies of them about, since they can't reproduce amongst themselves. Umm, weird talk.
As for the episode... SPOILERS BELOW
Glad they clarified Kacey, too. I knew that it had to be a ploy for Leoban to get Starbuck to love him and I know it wouldn't work... she just fell in love with a kid she believed was hers.
The whole Ellen Tigh deal was surprising in someways. I understood that a lot of the colonists would not forgive her for her betrayal, and I understood why Anders said it be better if Saul resolved the matter himself. But it was amazing how well they wrote that final scene between Ellen and he... quite powerful and sad. Especially when Tigh meets Bill Adama again on the Galactica and how he regrets that he wasn't able to bring everyone back and we know about whom he's talking.
Now, the whole rescue was cool, too. We knew Lee would return and we knew at somepoint that the Pegasus would be history, but wow! that was awesome... ramming a Basestar and taking out another with debris!!
