trackback

Now that the writers have dealt with some of the leftover, “Unfinished Business” and other outright plot diversions, we return to the main story arc (sort of) as the humans find they are suddenly out of food. Inexplicably, they seem to know that there’s a nearby planet with edible algae, but they have to find their way through a star cluster with lethal radiation.

Kat’s past comes back to haunt her in the form of a strung-out looking low-life “civie” refuge that accosts her in the corridors of Galactica. Meanwhile, the truth about D’Anna’s present come to light, as Baltar confronts her about her habit of killing and resurrecting herself repeatedly. At the same time, Saul confronts his past by returning to duty.

Starbuck finds out about Kat’s past and revels in the power she has over her sometime rival. She manages to resist the temptation of revealing Kat’s past to Adama, but the act of digging pushes Kat over the edge. Kat’s deterioration — both in body from the radiation and spirit from her past uncovered — leads her to suicide by radiation overdose on her last mission through the star cluster, even as she redeems herself by saving the ship she sheppards through the radiation belt. That’s it for Kat as Kara gives her suicide pills to finish the job.
