CAUTION: Spoilers in post.
I loved it. I had more or less figured out how the main story would conclude, but found each character's wrap up quite enthralling.
One of the things I didn't see coming was Tori's death. I guess I just assumed the final 5 would always be the final 5, perhaps with the exception
Tyrol's decision to go off and live alone fit him quite well. You could really see how someone who's endured his existence for the past four years
would arrive at that decision.
Where the frak did kara go? I suppose her vanishing kind of sums up her entire existence. I mean, when you think about it, vanishing into thin air
is really the only way to end her particular story that jives with the rest of her story. A logical paradox if you will.
I also questioned Adama's decision to go off on his own at first. I can honestly understand the characters exhaustion however, and the need to
simply fulfill his "cabin with Roslyn" fantasy though, and her being there in spirit and memory seems to be enough for a guy like Bill Adama.
There's really only one thing I was left wondering about. It seems to me that there should have been some sort of connection between Starbuck and
the Six/Baltar angels. Starbuck, being the "harbinger of death", "leading her people to their end", was obviously charged with the destiny of
making sure the cycle was started again. To qualify that, if the cylons were able to accomplish their goal of eradicating the human race, "all of
this would not be able to happen again". Six and Baltar (the angle versions) were "messengers from god", making certain that their fleshen
counterparts followed a particular path, etc... I would have thought there would have been some sort of sub-story. Maybe Kara could have seen them,
or something along those lines.
I'm a little at a loss as to Hera's vital status throughout the story though, as mentioned above. According to the Doc, the primitive human's were
genetically compatible with the fleet's humans, so a human/cylon hybrid's is more than just debatable, it's completely unexplained.
