1. The Chief can spot Boomer immediately but Helo can't tell his wife isn't his wife? I mean, granted, she's not even in the same body she was when they first fell in love (she switched hides when she went off to rescue Hera, remember?), but... really, Helo? And should we read something either Cylon-y or meaning-of-love-y into that?2. If the BSG writers had decided early on that jump drives created a dangerous wake when they were activated, the tactics of the Fleet might have been wildly different. You mean every civilian ship with a jump drive could've made its escape and done damage to enemy ships at the same time... all this time? 2.5 Or more nit-pickingly, the Galactica is supposed to be able to withstand another jump or so, but it cannot survive the aftereffects of a tiny ship jumping nearby? Uh... This would bother me less if the next episode didn't seem to stem dramatically from this technobabble-inflicted wound.
The jump-wake bugged me about the episode, too. Why wouldn't the Cylon Raiders just jump in right by or inside the Galactica? Why don't the Raptors do the same to the Base Ships?
Specifically, if it really is an issue of Cylons just being that hard to tell apart, even when we know they're Cylons, and even when we're married to them, then I'll be terribly disappointed if we get a situation where Athena blames Helo for sleeping with her twin sister and claiming not to know it. I can get "Then maybe you don't even really love me!"-style soapy hysterics on any primetime drama. Athena had better grok, as well as you all seem to, that he could get duped like that. If she does, she gets to go through a special kind of hurting (and doubtless crying) that I can't get on Grey's Anatomy.
or all 8s frak the same, I guess.
