But I do remember debris from the entry/explosion. True, in real life a wormhole WOULD tear apart any kind of spacecraft, but it looked more like it blew apart. Maybe the pieces got sucked into the vortex and made their way to Earth, but the pieces on Earth almost seemed WAY too big and intact, as Cloudsclear noted (she should've been vaporized if her pieces really made it into a wormhole). We'll (maybe) see tomorrow night, yeah? Gods, I can't wait!!!

An accurate (and sad) analogy (I remember that day all too well), but it's possible. Then again, it may not be a conventional wormhole (it was never properly identified; so who knows what effect it had on Kara?). Could have been some other timey-whimey, vortexy-thingamajig? That's my scientific analysis.

The FF agree that the music they hear feels like it's from their childhood. The music was played to Kara as a child by her father. The "bad" Cylons agree that there is something in Hera's genetic code that they must unlock, and Hera knew the song from birth (maybe it's embedded in her code). The only way the music could have gone into her code is that it was already in the genetic code of the Eights (confirmed by the recent last words of an Eight's death of "too much confusion"). That must mean that the FF created the eight models and put the music in their genes. Still, the question is "why?".

But I have to say, I loved....LOVED this episode. Mary McDonell was absolutely amazing - I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes when she made her way to the hanger deck. as for seeing Baltar and his old man, that was wonderful too.
My one and only issue with this episode was a surprising one - Tyrol. Suddenly he's in the brig? Ok, ok, that makes sense on the one hand because we know why he should be there - but...no other story arc, scene, aside or mention for that apart from what we've been shown so far? It just...it just seemed a little bit too much of a leap for me, like something was missing after being edited out, and it didn't quite gel and sit comfortably with everything else. If that is the case, then it seems a bit of a strange choice considering that the final 2 or 3 shows were given the ok to stretch their times a little. (Anyone listen to Moores commentary and know if anything was mentioned about the whole Tyrol story arc 'jump'?)
For me, this is my favorite episode of this last season. That said, still have THAT finale to come this coming tuesday evening, so I'll hold judgement for now in confirming on that!
In the meantime, enjoy your viewing experiences guys, and I'll see you on the other side. (Be sure to get the drinks in, every time you see a Cylon, knock back a slug!)
SO SAY WE ALL.
