2/20/09: Updated Speculation from TPR
2/20/09: Ellen Tigh returns to the Galactica, but her passionate reunion with Saul is short-lived when she learns of his relationship with Six and their expected child. The remaining Cylons are delighted by her return, however, and she begins to encourage them to leave and begin a new life away from the ship. From LocateTV
2/19/09: Ellen Tigh steps off the Raptor. Hot Dog asks, "How many dead chicks are out there?" as he stands next to Starbuck. Tigh tells Ellen, "There's so much I have to ask you." Ellen asks, "Floor or Table?" Tigh answers, "I don't care." Tigh clears the table off. Ellen pushes Tigh down and climbs on top of him. Boomer tells Caprica and most of the Final Five, "We're not safe in this fleet." Caprica Six beats off the two men down in the common area. Tory says, "This is about the survival of the thirteenth tribe in its purest form." Continuing the earlier scene, Tigh and Ellen undress more. Tigh's eye patch is off. Ellen asks, "So who did you frak?" In another scene, Ellen looks at Tigh, "You got her pregnant?" From Space (Canadian) Promo
2/19/09: Down in a common area, Marines supervise the distribution of food. The situation is tense. Caprica Six has her had covered as she tries to quietly make her way through the area. She's stopped by a man who calls her, "Cylon." She says that she "doesn't want any trouble" as she sees a second man has stepped in her way. The first ells her, "Well, you've got trouble." The second pulls the cloth off as the first pushes her. Caprica immediately dispatches the first into a table. The second man manages to hit her before she takes him out too. She then gathers herself and walks out as everyone else looks on. From SciFi Channel Promo
2/19/09: Kara climbs out of her Viper as Lee, Roslin and Adama walk down from the catwalk onto the hangar deck. Boomer can be seen moving from the front of the Raptor. The Raptor's door opens to reveal Ellen's legs. Tyrol walks around to see. Boomer walks out of the Raptor. Kara has joined Lee, Roslin and Adama as they watch.

2/17/09: According to Bear McCreary, episode 416 ("Deadlock") will provide more "back story and details of the lives of the Final Five." He added, "the unusual amount of fast-paced and essential dialog in these two shows left little room for big musical statements." From Bear's Battlestar Blog [So it seems we'll get a lot more exposition this episode, which hopefully means filling in some of the blanks left in "No Exit."]
2/15/09: Regarding Anders' fate, here's some old news from Katee Sackhoff in which she said, "For anyone who's been a fan of the show, ... [they know that] on her [dog tag necklace] for the last two years she's had a ring and a dog tag. She ends the series with a ring, a dog tag and a bullet. "She has her necklace o' death-is what I like to call it," From Redeye Chicago [That's the bullet pulled out of Anders and could mean that things don't turn out well for him.]
2/15/09: Ellen is faced with a decision that could have repercussions for humans and Cylons alike. From SciFi Channel [At least we know this episode description from SciFi Channel is accurate based on the promo. We're referring to the description released for episode 415 (since updated) that said Anders was on the Cylon baseship.]
2/15/09: Selected Promo Pics from the episode:
Caprica Six gets into a scrape.
[This looks like the same common area that Caprica Six was trying to sneak through in the promo.
Apparently, someone spotted her and wasn't happy that she's there.]
Baltar comforts a woman.
[Another pic, which has not been released, showed that woman had a young son.]
Baltar watches something as his followered can be seen as well.
[The question is whether this scene is strictly related to the woman he comforts,
or if he was in the same area where Caprica Six got into the scrape seen above.]
Tyrol and Adama talk as repairs go on behind them.
[Another pic, which has not been released, clearly showed Cylons participating in the repairs
as Adama finally agreed to at the end of the previous episode.]
2/14/09: Ellen and Boomer step off the Raptor on Galactica's hangar deck to Adama, Lee, Roslin, Starbuck, Tigh and Hot Dog's surprise. Ellen says that she never thought she's see "this" as we see Tory, Caprica Six and Boomer look at Ellen following Cottle's examination in sickbay. Ellen says, "this is how it was" as she brushes Tyrol's cheek with the back of her hand. Tigh walks up alongside Ellen in a continuation of the scene in sickbay. The sickbay scene continues with Caprica Six suggesting that they "jump away and start a new life." Tigh asks, "Abandon the fleet?" As Tyrol looks on, Tory says, "This is about the original thirteenth tribe." A Six (Caprica?) moves through a crowded common area with her head covered presumably to conceal her identity. She appears to be followed by some women (Baltar's followers?). Anders still lies in a coma in sickbay. Two women check their weapons. Baltar looks on [We're not sure if he's looking at the armed women, or it's just edited to appear that way.] In a continuation of Tory's scene, Tory asks Ellen, "Do you vote to stay or to go?" Ellen looks at Tory and then past to her Tigh and Caprica Six. From SciFi Channel Promo [Now that we've gotten some sleep, we've cleaned up our first rough recap of the promo. Most of the promo looks to come from one or two scenes. Tigh's now caught between two women and it's possible that Ellen opposes Caprica's idea to leave. What's we're curious about is the scene of (Caprica) Six sneaking through the common area, the armed women and Baltar's involvement. Even with Zarek and Gaeta's mutiny, there appears to be some more trouble brewing.]

6/24/08: Here's an interesting bit about 'Slick' the piano player: "The writers have come up with a musician character for the final batch of episodes (due sometime in 2009) who's loosely modeled on McCreary." From nj.com Interview [Based on the description, he'll be around for a few episodes, so will he be BSG's version of Vic Fontaine?]
