BSG – The Woman King

So … yeah. Great episode. But kind of self-contained, with no real impact on the other storylines or the mythology in general. A racist doctor is killing off refugee Sagittarons, Helo figures it out, nobody believes him at first, then they do, and the doctor is arrested. Presumably, the Sagittarons are the colony that nobody else likes, because of their hardcore fundamental beliefs, including a rejection of modern medicine — which makes them kind of like Christian Scientists, I suppose. Says Papa Adama, “There’s hate, and then there’s allowing hate. Two sides of the same coin, really. We’re guilty of both.” Which I guess is the episode’s object lesson. Whether or not anybody will actually remember this lesson in coming episodes remains to be seen. Particularly as regards Sharon.
