Just watched the premier episode of season 5 (or 4.5, if you want to number it that way). Wow!
I've been a fan of this series from the start; and this new season keep delivering the awesomeness! Too long a wait since the end of season 4, in my
Many questions answered, and cans-of-worms opened in this latest episode:
- SPOILER ALERT! -
So now we know who the 5th cylon is - and the timeline of the series has become much
more definitive! I'd always suspected (since season 3,
at least), that the series was playing in the future, but now we know (do we?) that it's the far
future: Two thousand years, minimum!
The origin of the twelve
colonies is now established - Earth is not
the thirteenth colony?!? It was just called that by the remnants of
cylon war, who went on to Kobol, perhaps?
And the 'mastermind' of the creation of the cylons? The mysterious 'fifth' - who we now have identified: "It's all in place!" Will we see
more of this in the 'Caprica' spin-off?
So, at the end we have the fleet, such as it now is, leaving
Earth yet again - all this has happened before - no lingering? Although they left
it ambiguous as to whether there are future revelations to be discovered on Earth.
Thoughts? Predictions? More ramblings later after I've had a chance to digest the episode further!
