returns next week for a string of seven episodes that will lead the series to its march 25th finale. Still no word on whether or not Battlestar Galactica
will be renewed for a fourth season, but savvy industry watchers note that the series is quite close to being eligible for a lucrative syndication package, yet another good reason to believe we'll be seeing more Battlestar Galactica
next year. Read on for a preview of what to expect as sweeps month heads to a close.
February 11th - The Woman, King
Note the conspicuous comma. In this episode of Battlestar Galactica
King is indeed a woman whose last name is King. This is a Helo-Centric episode where Mrs. King approaches Helo with concerns that a Dr. Roberts (played by vet Bruce Davison) is killing Saggitarians. Things become a bit more complicated when Helo finds out it is Roberts who is treating Hera.
February 18th - A Day in the Life
Chief and Calley get trapped on the wrong end of an airlock resulting in some dire circumstances. Flashback sequences provide some insight into Admiral Adam's relationship with his wife Caroline. Looks like a mostly dramatic outing for Battlestar Galactica
February 25th - Dirty Hands
Shades of new Caprica as Chief finds himself embroiled in a labor dispute. Not knowing which direction to turn, he seeks the counsel of deposed president Baltar who, himself, is pondering his past actions. Seelix makes a return in this episode and looks to be pining for chief whose wife is still in grave shape.
This ends what is known for sure, Battlestar Galactica
produers promise huge surprises and twists on the level of the New Caprica leap from season two starting with the first episode of March, Maelstrom, which debuts March 4th. The Battlestar Galactica
producers, and stars, have done everything they can do to convince us that Starbuck dies in this episode. Could it be they are just not going to resist the extremely efficient spoiler network that has evolved on the internet, or do they have a major curve ball in store for us when the ides of March roll in?
One thing that is revealed through scan Battlestar Galactica
promo pics for Maelstrom is the appearance of Kara's Eye of Jupiter fascination. It is safe to assume that learning the nature of her destiny is going to have some pretty heavy implications for Galacticas ace.
After Maelstrom is 'The Son Also Rises' which sees Apollo taking a drastic career shift in an attempt to escape his fathers shadow. The young Adama positions himself to reform the legal system, starting with ensuring a fair trial for Gaius Baltar. This is the beginning of a three part Battlestar Galactica which ends with Crossroads part one and two. Amongst other things, we know that the Baltar story indeed gets tied up over these three episode one way or another, and that we will learn a little more about who comprises the final five. No guess at all on what the major 'game changer' is that
producers are pushing out ther unless, of course, you consider my nagging suspicion that they find Earth.
