4x08: Sine Qua Non

Liveblogging again, woot! It's about bloody time, too. Two weeks is just waaaaaay too long to wait between new BSG episodes (which makes me wonder how in hell I'll survive the midseason hiatus, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it), particularly given the kind of cliffhanger the last episode ended on and the fact that those living in the U.K. got to see this episode first. May I say again: NO FAIR!!! And the whole "skipping a week because it's Memorial Day" really doesn't hold water with me for two reasons. First because, UM, HELLO, I LIVE IN CANADA, and second, I would so seriously get up at THREE FUCKING A.M. to watch BSG if I had to. Just sayin'.

Anyway! On to the liveblog.



- OMG, Natalie's still alive! I did not expect that. Heh.

- Ahh, Quorum confusion. Such fun.

- LEE SIGHTING!!!!

- Geez, this reminds me of Parliament hearings.

- Cottle is so totally a Cylon. You heard it here ... well, about 552nd by now, since there have been tons of other people predicting this.

- Zarek for president! Man, those predictors weren't far wrong. This is why they're right about Cottle.

- Another one bites the dust. Not surprising.

- Ahh, the brig. A familiar place for Sharon, unfortunately.

- Interesting how the urge to protect her child is so strong in Sharon that she would do something like this, violating the trust Adama and others had placed in her.

- Yes, Lee, unfortunately you can't escape the family business, whether you're a delegate or a pilot.

- Haha, my computer wants to restart itself because it's just finished installing all these updates. Sorry computer, you're going to have to wait. :P

- Ooh, the resurrection ship jumped too! Guess the Hybrid must have control of that too.

- *waits for the Adama/Tigh smackdown* (You so know it's coming.)

- "Do some good." But what is Zarek's definition of doing good, exactly?

- Lampkin's back! WOOT!!!!!

- "When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object ..." In other words, when the Pittsburgh Penguins play the Detroit Red Wings ...

- Ha, I love angry!Lee. He rocks.

- Looks like we'll be getting more Tigh/Six scenes. Hmm.

- Ahh, Tigh, wonderfully direct as always.

- TIGH TOTALLY SHIPS ADAMA/ROSLIN!!!! I CALLED IT!!

- Oh shit, Cylon attack!

- Or maybe not! Hmm!

- Why do I get the feeling this extravehicular thing is a bad idea?

- Well this is confusing. Why would they send back an empty Raptor?

- Ahhh, and thus we mourn the death of another Redshirt. Alas, poor Pike, we hardly knew you. This does beg the question of precisely how he (I'm assuming he's a he?) died, though.

- Adama himself is in the Raptor? Whoa, talk about a switch there. Maybe they need someone practiced to examine it since Chief is no longer, well, Chief?

- Does Lampkin seriously carry his cat everywhere? That rocks!

- So they just, like ... left the Fleet behind? Bwuh?

- Uh yeah. Apparently they did. I'll be damned, Adama/Roslin is canon.

- Oh shit, Adama SO knows Tigh's a Cylon. He. So. Knows.

- WHAT. THE. FUCK. OKAY THAT WAS SO OUT OF LEFT FIELD I DIDN'T EVEN ... OMG.

- O. M. G.

- LOL, they broke the ship again! I'm surprised the museum or whoever the props department is renting it from would trust EJO with it after the number of times he's wrecked it. I LOVE that they referenced that in canon though.

- It's funny, too: from the previews I was so sure Bill was going to find out that Tigh was a Cylon. I never, NEVER saw what actually happened coming. And that's why I love this show, ladies and gentlemen.

- That is really kind of cool that Kara's back on duty. And, of course, that she gets a scene with Bill. Whee!

- And so does Lampkin! Wow, everyone's really making the rounds this eppy.

- Iiiiiiiinteresting. That whole Lampkin/Adama convo for the win.

- He's relinquishing command? Well frak me sideways with a ... something. Wow.

- So much wisdom can be gained from talking to cats. Trufax, people!

- OH SNAP. GUN.

- IF HE KILLS HIM I WILL BE SO FUCKING ANGRY YOU WON'T EVEN BELIEVE. HEH.

- Oh wow, go Lee. I've missed his speeches, for sure. (Not that he got to make many of them, but you know.)

- WIN. THAT IS ALL. WIN.

- Aww, it's the New Caprica puppy! Cute!

- Looks like Lee got himself a haircut! Whee!

- So Bill's grand plan is basically to wait around until and unless the baseship comes back? D'awwww.

- OMG. OMG. OF HOW MUCH WIN IS THIS EPISODE MADE? SO. MUCH. WIN.

- Is it just me or is Sharon humming the same song Gaeta was singing? I could be wrong, but ...

- Oh wow. I am SO glad we don't have to wait two weeks for the next episode as well. 'Cause that, I think, would quite honestly be torture.

- Adama/Roslin is canon. Bill is waiting for her in a Raptor at the rendezvous point. He did the whole "bring in the cat" exchange with Kara. Kara and Lee stood next to each other. I am a happy fangirl. Yes, yes I am. OH ABSOLUTELY YES.
