I am still completely dazed from last night’s premiere of the last ten episodes of ‘The Best Show On Television’.
And while the reveal of Ellen as the final Cylon, does explain her sudden and suspicious appearance in Episode 9 of Season 1, “Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down”, she was not my first pick for the Fifth. However, she does make sense and suddenly, Tigh (my absolute favourite character on BSG behind Starbuck, and Tyrol who are one and two respectively) and the self-torturing he puts himself through, the twisted encrusted relationship he had with Ellen, and their escape into alcohol, MAKE SENSE.
I am also still burnt and twisted by Dee’s death. I think she took the punk way out, because I never, ever think suicide is a solution. As depressing as what they found on ‘Earth’ was, you can be sure the next clue to where they were supposed to go next is right around the corner.
Kudos to RDM and DE though. The moment when she took that wedding ring off, and hung it up… then, then… I can’t even type it. I just felt like someone had punched me in the gut… it took the wind right out of me. How do you write shit like that?
I can’t FRAKKIN WAIT until next week.
I tried to stay up last night for someone to post the torrent, but at 2 A.M. I conked out. This morning, TWELVE torrents were posted, and EZTV’s had something like 1500 seeders. WOW! So you know Big Mami watching and re-watching non-stop until next week. TYPICAL.
This was an AMAZING episode! Easily among the best I’ve seen.
‘Battlestar Galactica’: Kate Vernon reveals a Cylonic secret
Back from the dead for Season 4, Vernon’s Ellen Tigh is indeed among the warring dirty dozen.

Like a veteran of the witness protection program, actress Kate Vernon picked a secluded corner table of a very public restaurant for the meeting. She studied the tape recorder sitting next to her teacup on the table and then glanced around the Studio City bistro to see if anyone was eavesdropping. ‘Forgive me if I’m a little awkward talking about it,’ Vernon said during an interview earlier this week. ‘It’s been two years that I’ve been sitting on this secret, and after that long it’s kind of hard to just start talking . . . ‘”
