It's a week late, but my excuse is as follows: Monday was my birthday, Tuesday was US election Day, and Weds-Saturday I was in CA.

So I'm going to follow em_meredith's lead because everyone knows the world goes better when you do what she tells you, and post a combined non-spoilery discussion and picspam.

I have ONE spoilery question, and will go ahead and do a separate post for that.

Also, I'm pretty sure that some stuff happened with Kara in this episode, but ummm, my bias prevented me from seeing a lot of it. I'm sure em_meredith will fill in the blanks for me.


SummaryA vicious injury ends the mutiny attempt aboard the Demetrius, Kara leads her crew to the Cylon rebel's Basestar, and Roslin begins to understand Gaius Baltar's appeal to his followers. Meanwhile, Anders attempts to secretly find answers to his purpose as a member of the Final Five.

For Your Consideration

  • Since Helo arrested Kara does that mean they’re not BFFs anymore?
  • How do you think everyone's general reactions to the Cylons impacted Sam?
  • Wow – Bodie got to do something other than serve as a comedic foil . . . but why was that enough to warrant him having his own promo shot?
  • Am I the only one that, every time I'm reminded that Hot Dog's last name is Costanza, immediately thinks of George on Seinfeld.
  • How brutal was it to see Laura without her hair? Also, why is she putting on full make-up but not bothering with the wig?))
  • So the Cylon ships bleed when they’re destroyed?
  • Why do you think the Cylons were willing to ignore Leoben's obsession with Kara, but don't like Six's obsession with Baltar?
  • We don’t see any variety of personalities in the male Cylons, and even in Sharon the variety is less pronounced – so how does Six come by all the different incarnations.
  • Ferry, crossing the river – Styx much? - how is this a new concept to them?
  • Why would Laura’s mother believe Aphrodite of all the gods would swoop her away? I don’t remember her ever being connected with death – is Roslin somehow connected to Aphrodite?
  • There was no name on the boat, right? Or did I miss it?
  • Why does Laura's mom look like Barbara Bush - is it further confirmation of BSG as a post 9/11 allegory and the fact that Laura's politics are more in line with Bush's than anyone else?
  • The British DVDs contain an extended scene with Roslin & Adama where Adama is about to make the moves on Laura and then Baltar's radio broadcast interrupts them, and Adama wants to turn it off but Laura leaves it on. How WRONG is that, both that they cut the scene, and that Adama/Roslin flirting was interrupted by Baltar?


Memorable Quotes
  • Thus will it come to pass. They dying leader will know the truth of the opera house. The missing three will give you the five who come from the home of the thirteenth. You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace. You will lead them all to their end.
  • I don’t need metaphors; I need answers.
  • Roslin: We’re going to find it
    Adama: Earth?
    Roslin: Together
    Adama: I used to think it was a pipe dream; I just used it as a carrot for the fleet
    Roslin: What made you change?
    Adama: You. You made me believe.


Hello, and welcome to the Faith picspam – eman style. I’m told that there were some things that happened in this episode that dealt with Kara, and Gaeta, and Leoben, and the Cylons. But, as might be expected, I’m here to talk about Roslin and the character that was named after me. Don’t shatter my delusion.

OMG!WTF!Barbara Bush!!?
That was actually pretty close to my initial reaction to that scene.

May I say that Bill's smile in this scene was deadly. Deadly I tell you.

How WRONG is that, both that they cut the scene, and that Adama/Roslin flirting was interrupted by Baltar?
This is further evidence to support my theory that the sci fi people are a bunch of bastards and that Baltar is just their pawn, which they use to destroy my happiness.

YouTube's deleted every upload. I could cap it and provide a transcript. (Not willing to upload as I already have two copyright strikes against me and with 3 I'm out)

For the sake of em's sanity and the plans for a spin-off show, I hope not.

Do you even have to ask?

Ferry, crossing the river – Styx much?
See, I'd been thinking Acheron, but it's been a long time since I've read Virgil or Dante. In related news, I have nothing on Aphrodite either. That is a little odd.
