Holy crap! This episode definitely made it worth waiting four episodes for a payoff! The scene with Saul and Ellen was VERY powerful. Spoiler : We all knew Saul was going to kill his wife, but when the moment actually came, I was moved to tears. You could just feel the old man's heart break as Ellen died in his arms. I think Saul's going to be hitting the bottle for a few episodes. The battle was everything I could hope for. Spoiler : The moment when the Battlestar jumped directly into New Caprica's atmosphere was a "wow" moment to rival anything in the movies, much less the small screen. I was worried that the rescue battle would have to involve some sort of deus ex machina to be successful, but the tactics were brilliant, unconventional and believable. I'm so relieved the writers didn't go for a typical celebration scene, but instead... Spoiler : ...tinged the whole thing with some very bitter notes. It's obvious that Kasey wasn't what Leoben claimed she was, but all the same it was awful watching the moment when Kara realized she'd been had, and her heartbreak/feeling of betrayal was all the more poigniant given all the celebration going on around her. I have a feeling Kara is going to become completely unhinged anytime she encounters Leoben or one of his copies any time in the future. Colonel Tigh of course made me sad all over again when he finally boarded the ship and reunited with Adama. You know damned well he was thinking only of his wife while surrounded by cheering crewmates. I look forward to learning more about the cylons and their flaws over the next few episodes!
