Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 3 – The Oath January 31, 2009

Third episode of what we think should be Season 5 (SciFi calls it Season 4 episode 13) was one awesome episode.

Called the Oath – clearly both sides think they’re upholding their Oath to the Colonial Fleet. The dept of Felix Gaeta’s mutiny is astounding he’s got the majority of Galactica (but not his boyfriend?!) on board.

Sure he didn’t shoot Adama, but Gaeta is a nice guy — or at least he was until he ordered the outgoing Raptor destroyed.

The Oath
Someone is gonna die there, will it be the Raptor team? or will it Be Tight? Or will Admiral Adama be toasted???

My bet is the raptor with all hands lost.

It’s sad that after everything that’s happened humans are turning against humans again. Innocent people are getting killed and all for what? Just because they don’t trust the Cylons?? That is a big issue and hey if i was on Galactica, personally I’d probably side with Gaeta too.

After the setup of the last episode – this episode is only part of the payoff.. i suspect that this mutiny will carry us forward right till the final episode.

Watch The Oath

I really liked the intensity and character development in this episode. I especially liked the scene when Adama and Tigh were being escorted to the brig by the two guards and how they managed to escape by working together and communicating without words. I hope the writers don’t kill off Tigh because I’m enjoying the development of the relationship between him and Adama. The writers have put an new spin on the “Kirk-Spock” duo, which I find interesting.
