BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Recap: “Escape Velocity”

Original Airdate: 4/25/08

39,675. Colonial Fleet sans one Cally Tyrol. Chief leads the memorial service but he has that patented Crazy Chief look his in eye. He grabs Tory and Tigh as they try to leave, but Tigh casts him a threatening look out of one eye. Chief is not adjusting well to Cally’s suicide, as Tory spins it. He makes a critical error while repairing Racetrack’s raptor that nearly gets her killed. Then he yells at Adama who is forced to demote him. I liked it better when Adama just clocked him.

Tory has no guilt, which to me is less about airlocking Cally and more about her ability to be within three feet of Baltar without gagging. Col. Tigh consults Caprica Six about how to turn off guilt. He keeps seeing his wife Ellen. Six is drawn to him but she doesn’t quite know why, so she smacks him around.

Baltar’s cult gets attacked by fanatics. He responds by storming into a Colonial worship service. Roslin tries to pass an emergency measure to limit Baltar’s ability to meet with the cult, but Lee leads the rest of the Quorum to override her. Baltar begins a lengthy sermon about how we’re all perfect. This gives us the one and only spotting of both Starbuck and Anders, long away on the Demetrius.

The recap is short because it’s a lot of talking and smacking people around in this episode. And Roslin leans her head on Adama’s shoulder once. The suspense of the final Cylon is killing me.

Jo has a boring job in a small town in Texas and spends her hours daydreaming about Dillon Panther football, Samuel T. Anders and becoming a real life version of Veronica Mars. Her random TV rants can be found at
