Could they have wound us up any tighter? The opening sequence was so well orchestrated and the music just drove it. Sharon with the gun in her mouth, the punch to Lee's gut, the look on Kara's face, Helo with the gun on Sharon. And the *music*.
Everyone is just so fucked up.
I wasn't looking forward to Apollo/Starbuck shippiness, but what they're doing really works for me. It would be hard to call it "shippy". I loved it when she punched him and he punched her back. But even more, I loved it when he made her salute, using his military position to gain power in their personal relationship. Just like Sharon did to Tyrell. "You're dismissed."
And my heart is just bleeding for Sharon, both of her. I don't think there's going to be any redemption for her. She is what she was made, even if she hates it.
There's a real polarization now with the religion between the male and female authority figures. I'm not sure what to think of that. Though it seems realistic to me, based on my experience. I confess, I haven't been paying that much attention to the male and female roles on the show.
Only one more episode this season. How will I survive?
