Subject: Battlestar Galactica 3.2 or 3? Candy for the Oracle. spoilers for BSG

I'm just cutting to the most interesting part of the episode (for me) to talk about D'anna, and the Oracle. D'anna has a dream which includes a baby crying and the outside of the tent of the Oracle.

D'anna enters the tent of the Oracle

Oracle: Don't be afraid. I know who you are. What you are. Poor thing. You must be terrified. (Oracle shakes some Kamala onto the palm of her hand and licks it off slowly) Do you have candy?

D'anna: Candy? No.

Oracle: Kamala's so bitter. Old Zeus sees all. Sees you number three. Sees your pain -- your destiny. All the Gods weep for you.

D'anna: There is no Zeus. No other god but God.

Oracle: Well, you don't believe that anymore. You don't know what you believe and that is why you're here.

D'anna: It's not true. I don't even know why I'm here. This is the stupidest thing I ever did.

Oracle: It's YOUR dream that brings you to ME.

D'anna: How do you know about that?

Oracle: I have a message for you. From the one you worship. He speaks through me to you. Just as he speaks in your dreams. The message is...

The fruit born of two peoples is alive. A child named after the wife and sister of the all-knowing Zeus...Hera lives.

D'anna: That's not true, the child is dead.

Oracle: You will hold her in your arms and you'll know for the first time what it is to feel true love. But you'll lose everything you've done here. Wish I had some chocolate caramel.

So, the Oracle getts the munchies doing all that Kamala. I listened to the podcast and Ron and his wife banter on while the show is airing. Now, Ron has shown that there is a 'cross-over' between religions and that for him religion is something where there are many paths to a truth and it's the path you decide to take that determins the end result. So, the Cylon Montheist and the Human polytheist may have more in common than they wish to belive. That is why I figure the Cylons cover their "existential asses" like mentioned in epsiode one where Balthar is forced to sign the execution order for fellow humans taking the 'blame' off the Cylons if there is indeed a God.

This is the beginning of a story arc for D'anna and for Sharon's baby as now Sharon knows that her child may be alive. I think Adama's part in the death of the baby may make a big difference to Sharon on how she will ultimately react.

Exodus as an episode is just a bunch of set up for the big confrontation in part two next week. So, we've had Adama's St. Crispins speech, let the battle begin.
