In the final episode Boomer shot Adama. But she shot him twice in the stomach. She had perfect range and opprutunity to shoot him in the head. One shot in the head and he would be done. Now I know it was in the script. Was she struggling with her cylon/human memories? Was it a way of warning the fleet? Was it just that one moment of Cylon programming?

There was alot of talk among BSG fans that Boomers programming was flawed. In the way she really thought of herself as human.

She still even dropped the nuke inside the basestar etc.

interesting thought there. The "plan" was to critically wound adama perhaps to de moralize the fleet.

Interesting thought. I hate to say it but I think it was cause the writers wanted to keep Adama.

need to wipe your computer eh? tongue.gif

Hmmmmm ok I'll try to find a more entertaining one instead.

I like the "flawed" prgramming theory though (obviously they wanted to keep Adama around as a character too)

I think it has more to do with her height. If she lifted the gun so she could aim at the head, there would have been more time for someone to stop her. If it had been a flaw in her programming, she would have not shot twice.

Maybe the Cylons wanted the fleet to break apart under Tigh's command so they could go in for the kill easier...........a severely injured Adama would of done wonders for the Cylons

I we want to be totally honest, it is because Edward James Olmos is the star of the show.

I think it was totally unintentional that Adama survived the attack. I think they wanted to kill him but likely because of Boomer's conflict between Cyclon and Human was not calculated or even expected from the Cyclon's the plan went awry. I.e. due to factors the Cyclon's didn't factor into (boomer's belief that she's a human and fighting her cyclon side) the plan didn't succeed.

Those are my thoughts at least.

In one sense you might be right that Adama survival was unintentional. However, if someone were to do a proper assassination than she would have simply shot him in the head and not the gut! You usually shoot someone there if want them to die a long, painful death! But she did shoot him twice. Thankfully, she screwed up and Adama survived!

But I think Boomer was trying to kill him, but underestimated his will to live!

Indeed, and it also sort of foreshadows events in season 2, with Athena.
