First viewing impressions. 2nd viewing in 60 min.

Wiping the tears from my cheeks. I didn't think I would be affected like this. After all, I did read the damn spoilers for months now.


The Shiny:
Sam appearance. yay.
Leoben or rather Head!Leoben scenes! I really loved CKR in his scenes with KS. Their up against the painty wall sex was uber hot.
Laura sighting! With Adama!
I really dig the Oracles.
I know we have been building up slowly over season 3 to destroy Kara and have her take a dive off the deep end. But this was just painful to watch. Yet fascinating to see how/why she is frakked up in the first place.
Gun Camera! wheee. Pilots!
Hotdog all concerned over Kara's wet dreams of Leoben. heh. I have much love for Hotdog.


The Shrugs:
The bonus scene. whatever. Would have been cooler if we had a cozy scene with Bill and Laura.


The Frakked:
Is she really dead? Is this the last we see of Leoben in all his streamy glory? Why couldn't it be Cally?
Still no Jake sighting.


Overall, I loved this episode. Now, I know Kara cannot be dead. After all, why would Cylons and Oracles both say she has a destiny, and then have her go and blow up over a planet. Seems kind of a waste if you ask me. I think she is transcended or..... she actually ejected from the viper before the big boom. We did see her hand hovering over the eject handle. And, we did see the Cylon heavy raider from Lee's cockpit as it flitted through the clouds in front of Kara. I don't think he saw it though. oops, my bad, he did see it. I had a small memory lapse. So.....it is feasible that Leoben was in the heavy raider and Kara ejected and he rescued her. And RDM and Co. will frak with us and leave KS off the credits till next season. Because she will be back... I refuse to believe she is gone. yeah.

I am a VERY sad fangirl. I love your theory on how she's not dead. I will now cling to your theory as a possible hope. :( I don't want Kara to be dead!

I have to say that the only thing that made the end of the episode even slightly bearable was the little Ron monster eating RDM at the end. I love those end credit things.

I really can't believe she is. Lots of people are theorizing she is one of the Final Five. Who knows. But I think she will be back for season 4. I am sure that by summertime, we will have some clues/spoilers popping up.

I usually avoid spoilers like the plague. I desperately wish I hadn't been spoiled for this episode. I might be up for a definitive "she's not dead" spoiler though. No details, just acknowledgement of them not permanantly killing off my favorite character.

I'm hoping she's not a final five, but she'll be marooned on the planet ala old school BSG. Or even better Leoban picks her up in the heavy raider and things progress from there. More mind frakked Kara, is still Kara.

I love Leoben and Kara together. I think she was discovering that she is supposed to be reborn so to speak. I tried to pay more attention to the 2nd showing to pick up on what was said. Did you catch the definite 2001 music used near the end right before she went to speak to her dying mom in bed? Leoben was not Leoben, he was the one to lead her to the door to go to the place that hovers between life and death.

That is the same place D'Anna loved to hang out during in her suicide run. The place between life and death, where the final 5 are hanging out being all robey. So my take on it is that Kara knows this but only subconsciously. Head!Leoben was the manifestation of that subconscious.

Aside from all that, KaraLeoben paint sex was hot.

2001? The Space Odessy thingie? I never watched it.

I noticed the Kara/3 connection and I'm hoping there's something more to it... like something that involves Kara not being dead.

The 2001 music/sound that was used is the tone you hear when gazing upon the obelisk that was found. You stare into the blackness of it and it is like you are looking into the abyss, and the tone just adds to it. Plus, there is a starchild in it. heheh

You need to watch this sci-fi classic. It is absolutely outstanding.

I keep meaning too, but school basically makes me redefine "free time" as "time in which I could get seven hours of sleep, but don't." Eventually I'll watch it. Just like eventually I'll watch Donnie Darko. :)

That was left wide open. Dead/halfway/alive? Dunno. Worst case scenario is her character pulling an Obi Wan and her 'spirit' or whateverthehell shows up to mess with other characters heads.

I don't think she is dead.

Yeah, I don't think she is dead. I think she is one of the final five cylons. Head!Leoben took her to opera house to hang out and be all robey with the other cylons. Then her head exploded.

Actually I go more into it in the comments above. heh

God, I hope she's not dead. I'd had a feeling, at the beginning of the episode, that they were killing her (don't know why, I hadn't read/heard any spoilers). But I was sitting there bawling at the end of the episode, with my hubby laughing at me for being a dork. He's of the mindset that there's no way they'd kill her off - that they went to all that work to establish that she has a "special destiny", there's no way she's just going to goo piff above a planet.

But god, the angst this is causing!

*momentarily distracted by the fact that your header is the wallpaper on my PC at work*

I don't think Kara ejected, per se, but I don't think she's dead, either. Leoben told her that it was time for her to see what lies between life and death, so that's where she is until sometime in s4. And I believe that's the same place D'Anna kept visiting on her way from suicide to resurrection.

Death = fact of life

Death =\= destiny

BSG may have dropped some threads in the past, but that's a pretty frakkin' huge thread to drop by having Kara simply be dead.
