The Dead List

Tonite's the series finale of BSG--OK, who dies? That is THE question. Here's my list: Adama (of course), Roslyn (she's dying of that cancer anyway), Baltar (heroically, because it was telegraphed last week), and all the bad Cylons. There have to be a few more--Tyrol seems like a good pick, as does Anders. Anders has to die, of course, to clear the way for Starbuck and Apollo to procreate the next race of human-Cylon hybrids. I think Saul Tigh has to live, although if he does die it will be to save Adama (in which case, Adama will not die). Ellen Tigh already died once, and the writers wouldn't give her another dramatic ending, would they?

Helo has to live. And save Hera.

If no one dies, I will be extremely disappointed. But I'm not worried about that. Not worried one bit.

My biggest fear is some kind of massive reset button. Part I of the finale last week pointed in that direction a bit, showing us the lives of several main characters on Caprica before the war. And some of those scenes were unfinished, no? The one with Adama, especially. So more flashbacks tonite. Let's keep them flashbacks, though.

I also am not crazy about the Cylon "colony" being positioned in a stationary orbit around a black hole with only one point to jump in and out of. A little convenient, no?

So who died? Can't just leave us non-BSG watchers hanging.

Tori died. Anders died. All the bad Cylons died! Got that one right.

But it was a strange ending . . . everyone died in the end.

More later.
