The twins stand with Sharon in the hangar bay, timing how long it takes Sharon's Raptor door to close: seven seconds. It feels weird to be in here without Chief, like we're all dancing naked with porn on Geminon or something. "Then another ten to repressurize, since we'll doing this in open space," says Kara. "That's pushing it." Sharon asks whether anybody's ever tried anything like this, and just in case watching it happen needs to get hyped some more, Kara's like, "No one's ever been crazy enough!" They're totally going to do a Barn Swallow! Into the arms of a Cylon! Specifically an Eight! That is SO AWESOME! This episode is not bad! Lee's like, "No talking, we're done. Prep for launch. We've only got 18 minutes left." Sharon's down, and starts getting amped, but I'm wondering about Kara right now, like has she ever dreamed about this? Saving someone from getting airlocked? If she'd never seen Laura murder Leoben, if she'd never prayed for his soul, how would she have felt about the Circle, when it came for her? That one small body, traveling under enormous pressure, out into the endless gap of space, without air or warmth or light, on an eternal trajectory: how much hate would it take to watch that happen? How could you not dream of it?
