I had a super-busy weekend and am behind on everything, including answering LJ comments. I'm really sorry it's taking me so long. I couldn't wait any longer to watch this week's BSG, though. (I didn't get the name of the ep.)

Something you should know about me: I am a Cylon sympathizer.

So great to get back to Caprica and this time from the Cylon's point of view. I love how they are rebuilding, trying to fit inside the human skin that's left. It seems like they are trying to make themselves in the image of humans, but better, rather than taking their own path.

It was interesting that so many of the main players and significant figures this week were female: Sharon x 2, Six, Xena (what's her number?), Roslin, and of course, baby Hera. The Cylons seem very female dominated.

So that sets them up to be the mother to the humans' father, something that's reproduced in small scale with Sharon and Helo, Six and Baltar. I am really looking forward to seeing what they make together. Because this can't end with the humans escaping the Cylons. They have to integrate somehow.

Imaginary!Baltar rules! He's so suave and composed, so unlike the Baltar we know. And now we know there's some real link between Baltar and Six, something beyond hallucination. How would that work?

I am dying to learn more about the Cylon religion. Who is their god? Is s/he real? A giant computer? A myth? Actually, they say "he" when they talk about god, right? Interesting. Maybe he's made in the image of man, but perfected.

Anders, you are not very exciting, but maybe Kara will come for you now. Not to mention those fracking baby factories.

Having the baby adopted: very bad idea. There's no way that's not going to come back and bite them in the ass.

And Helo and Tyrol sending the ashes into space killed me. You know that Tyrol and the other Sharon are going to meet some day.

This was an odd episode -- a lot happened but it didn't feel coherent to me. But it seems to be setting up a new arc, so that's all good.

Dude, I've been cheering the cylons on all season. And yeah, they are very female oriented. Huh. I don't know Xena's number but her name is D'anna. Sharon's an 8, right?

Hey, do you know if Caprica Six had a name?

And I love that Caprica Six has an Imaginary Baltar!


I feel rather sorry for her. He's much more annoying as an imaginary friend than B's imaginary Six...

Dude, I've been cheering the cylons on all season.

Definitely!

Hey, do you know if Caprica Six had a name?

We've never heard it. She must have; even Baltar wouldn't have an extended relationship with someone without knowing her name.

I heard from shadowserenity that she was called "Natasi" in the miniseries novelisation.

Because this can't end with the humans escaping the Cylons. They have to integrate somehow.

But of course. That's who we "Earthians" are: their hybrid offspring. :)

Hee! I've always wanted to be a cyborg.

You know that Tyrol and the other Sharon are going to meet some day.

My guess is that "some day" will either be Friday or a week from Friday. This episode had "we're setting everything up for the season finale" written all over it. :-D

Yeah, good point. It's been too long since Kara got back from Caprica -- they have to get back there soon and deal with things.

I just finished catching up completely with BSG. And yeah, I'm a Cylon sympathizer too, in the hugest way. In fact, I think this may have been my favorite episode so far.

This season has been a little spotty, but I it's back to the usual standard now. It's such an amazing show!

(And thanks for your email about the Kara fic! I wrote all of those as comment fic one day.)
