It’s forbidden fruit time. You’ve watched part one of Battlestar Galactica ‘Crossroads’ and you can’t wait until next week to see how it all turns out. Well, you don’t have to! Sure, you could wait until next week and enjoy the last episode of Battlestar Galactica season three for yourself, get the big final five reveal when it was intended, find out what character makes an unlikely appearance somewhere they shouldn’t be, and of course get the answer to Battlestar Galactica‘s looming question Du Jour, will Baltar get off or not. Or you could click the tempting little link below and find out everything ahead of time. C’mon, you know you want to…
First a few interpersonal items. Seems like Anders is getting comfy with Seelix, right? Wrong! In fact, Anders is going to have a hot and heavy make out session with Roslin’s aid Tory! Well, something has to bring them together because this thing with the mysterious music that Anders, Tory, and Tigh are hearing has to come to a head at some point. Oh and speaking of the music, next week you can add Tyrol to the list of people who are hearing its mysterious strains. (Which happen to be, get this, Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower”. Yes, I’m frakkin’ serious.)
Baltar is found not guilty! Part of this might be Lee’s speech on how they are all guilty of making choices that have cost lives, Roslin, Adama, all of the leaders in the fleet have left people behind, and none of them have been held accountable. So, Baltar is a scapegoat. It’s a tight vote, 3-2, and Adama Sr. winds up being the swing vote. A fact that doesn’t endear him to Roslin.
Tyrol, Anders, Tory, and Tigh meet in a launch tube to discuss the mysterious music. They decide amongst themselves that they are Cylons, and coincidently the Cylons attack. What are the new found Cylons to do? Well they return to their posts for duty, of course. Are they really Cylons? Uh… I’m thinking this has to be like a Cylon implant thing or something. But who knows. The producers did say the reveal would challenge our sense of what makes a Cylon a Cylon.
The ending. My god… the ending. As the Cylon’s attack, Baltar is wisked away by the cult that has formed around him. The courtroom empties in a hurry. Lee’s first impulse to to head to the hanger for action, three piece suit and all. He picks up an unidentified craft on radar and investigates, When he gets there he sees Starbuck’s Viper, but it can’t be, can it? Lee approaches and sure enough, in the greatest con job in television history Starbuck is alive (Katee Sackhoff is NOT on the credits for this episode!) She says she has been to Earth and can lead them there. OMG!
