So for the record, I loved the "choose your side" way of setting up the final battle (which, judging by the previews for next week's series finale, will be a doozy). It was such over-the-top drama, but it worked perfectly.
Also really liked the flashbacks. I'm not sure how much they added, but there was something sad and powerful about each of them and together they acted as a terrific reminder of how much you've cared about these characters for the last six years and how much the entire landscape of the show has changed since the miniseries. (I have no doubt that Lee and the bird will be especially important next week. Thoughts? Theories?)
Finally, what could be the most cryptic yet prophetic line from last night: Anders saying, "Find a Perfect World for the End of Kara Thrace."
What does it all mean? We'll find out next Friday night. See you all there.
