I'm standing by my theroy that what we saw as an explosion in "Malestrom" was actually the viper going into a wormhole.

But I do remember debris from the entry/explosion. blink.gif 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). cylonnono.gif We'll (maybe) see tomorrow night, yeah?

Not going about the ship being torn apart. Without some fancy Star Trek like shielding, that's what would happen, from what I understand, but what if a chunk as large as the cockpit did survive being thrown to Earth? The question then, involving Kara's death, would be what killed her? I imagine it would be like the Challenger disaster. When they recovered the bodies, they discovered that a few did survive teh explosion, but were knocked out, and died on impact with the water.

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. cylonnono.gif

If it's good enough for a Time Lord cylon-pancarte06.gif

I think the truth, storywise, is we will never know, because even the writers have no idea. Hope I'm wrong, though.

Perhaps our "current" Kara is the real Kara, and the ones before were copies or something.

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?".

Going to make this quick, as I don't want to read too much of the thread (just in case!) and I'll be checking back in next week as I've avoided the intertubes the past few weeks out of sheer desperation not to get anything spoilt!

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!) biggrin.gif

SO SAY WE ALL.
