Welcome Home Mr. President
In another kicks ass episode that changes so many things, it's hard to know where to start. From a technical point of view, the destruction of the Algae Planet by the nova was the best planetary destruction I've ever seen. The escape could have been a cool nail-biter but in an episode with so many dramatic parts, this was just a great sequence. The most awkward moment was when Apollo hugged Duala. I felt so bad for her. Here are the ways everything changed:
- Cylon Xena is now permanent shelved.
- Baltar has been captured by the humans. Let the trial begin!
- Hera has been returned to her parents.
- Caprica Six has surrendered to the humans. Will she be on trial for war crimes as well?
- Starbuck has something inside her that will lead her to a big destiny. Is she one of the final five Cylons?
I love this show.
