Fave Episodes - No. 3

bscap166No. 3 - Kobol's Last Gleaming pt. 2

A quick recap of the part 1 for everybody - a scouting patrol has found its way back to Kobol - the legendary birthplace of the colonies. Pres. Roslin has instructed Starbuck to return to Caprica to retrieve the Arrow of Apollo. (We all know Starbuck wants Apollo's "arrow," right? I sure can't blame her!) Helo has found out that Caprica Sharon is really a Cylon and shoots her, though she survives.

In this episode, Starbuck takes the Cylon Raider and jumps back to Caprica, sparking a full fledged blowup between Roslin and Adama, with Adama attempting to terminate Roslin's presidency. Roslin, of course, refuses. Adama then moves to arrest Roslin on Colonial One.

Back on Caprica, Helo and Caprica Sharon find their way to the museum where the Arrow of Apollo is kept. Sharon declares her love for Helo and reveals that she is pregnant. Starbuck arrives only to be confronted by a Six. Catfight ensues. Six beats the crap out of Starbuck but she manages to stab Six and kill her, at which point Helo and Sharon find her.

Boomer is sent on a mission to blow up a starbase near Kobol, finds out that she really is a Cylon when she meets copies of herself, and once she returns to Galactica ends up shooting Adama. Any questions?

Anyway, what I love about this episode is the mythology that emerges and the conflict that comes to a head between Adama and Roslin. Of course, would you expect anything less from a season finale?
