Storyline

The Demetrius, with Starbuck in command, has now been searching for Earth for 58 days and the time is fast approaching for them to rendezvous with the fleet. Helo is worried that she's becoming unhinged and the crew is on the brink of a mutiny. On a recon mission, Starbuck and Hot Dog come across a badly damaged Cylon Heavy Raider with Leoben Conoy on board. He tells Starbuck that only he can show her the way to Earth. Leoben also tells Sam Anders about the war that has broken out among the Cylons and that they need the colonial fleet's help. On the Galactica, Tyrol has yet to get over his wife's death and simply doesn't believe she committed suicide. He tells Tory Foster he will figure out what happened to her. Written by garykmcd

a pawn to king four episode...
17 January 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... and arguably the weakest in the entire series.

First, lets have some empathy for the writers.

When you are juggling so many balls (arcs) in the air, every now and then you need a cleanup episode, to reset the story, clean up the loose ends and get ready to move forward.

Which is what we have here.

But the job of the reviewer is to point out that, if all the prior episodes had been this weak, this episode, this season would not exist.

The episode is claustrophobic and frustrating. Everyone is acting in ways we are not used to. Don't make light of that. The dopamine high from watching good TV is based on familiarity and expectations. They are missing here.

What I found exceptionally odd is that the crew of the Demetrius which spent most of the episode considering that Thrace may be a Cylon actually had a known Cylon among them, but no one thought that odd.

I did. And the episode was weaker because of that.
