The Woman King

Written by Michael Angeli; Directed by Michael Rymer

Helo battles colonial prejudice in Galactica’s refugee camp. Discussion points include:

  • Why the title?
  • The saintly “Helo Suit”
  • Colonial racism
  • Adama and Cottle go way out of character
  • The awkward bar scene
  • A very special episode

Note: Check out “The Helo Suit” and the rest of Jacob Clifton’s epic TWP BSG recaps

Two to Go

Written by Doug Petrie; Directed by Bill L. Norton

Willow hunts down her remaining targets, Andrew and Jonathan. Discussion points includes:

  • Spike wants his old self back
  • The choice to be a demon
  • Xander at his most powerless
  • Obtuse Andrew and weak-willed Jonathan
  • Buffy and Dawn’s hopefulness
  • Willow’s responsibility and misalignment

Next time: Buffy 6×22 Grave and BSG 3×15 A Day in the Life.
