Storyline

Starbuck has been having vivid dreams, centered on the circular symbol she has been drawing since childhood and which is eerily similar to the symbol they found when looking for the Eye of Jupiter. Leoben Conroy and his comment to her that she has a destiny also figure prominently in her dreams. Tyrol suggests that she visit an oracle who repeats, word for word, what Leoben had told her. She recalls the difficult relationship she had with her domineering and abusive mother. She also begins to doubt her own mental state when she begins seeing things that are not there. Apollo convinces her to continue flying, with him as her wingman, but tragedy results. Written by garykmcd

The single greatest episode of the series.
6 March 2007 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

All I can say is... wow. This episode blew me away. This solidifies Galactica's place as not just one of, but THE best television series ever made.

Although the premise of this episode may seem like filler, it's far from it. The team behind Galactica has thrown us a curve ball once again. They have proved that they are willing to do the unthinkable and break every rule in the book. This is a character based series and the characters are brilliant.

I can't wait to see what lies in store for the finally. Only 1 more episode to go!
