"You want me to look the other way, is that it? Is that it? Our daughter's fine, that's all that matters?" Um, no? Even in the logic of this stupid story that's stupid. The reason everybody is against you, Helo, is not because they are horrible, but because what you are saying is CRAZY, and the reason for that is because this episode is STUPID. I mean, there's a whole blinders thing here about how if it weren't Sagittarons maybe people would be more willing to listen, and how if he weren't in the doghouse for killing those Prisoners Of War that Bill and Laura were about to use as bioweapons, which is also stupid because Angeli's the only person still following that narrative thread, so it's like there's a secret BSG that only he's watching, when the real reality is that more recently than his stupid episode, Helo SHOT HIS WIFE AND KILLED HER, which frankly trumps "my job sucks and I am a virtuous martyr" as a reason for tension in the Agathon home right now. She tells him that's stupid, and he gets just vicious: "Or is it because as long as everyone hates the Sagittarons they'll forget you're a Cylon for five minutes?" Sharon stands up so fast you'd think she was a robot, and tells him quote to "shut the frack up." "Yeah, I want you to look the other way. I have to fight every single day on this ship to be accepted..." which again: only pisses her off in Angeli episodes. Do you see what I'm saying here? Helo bitches about how this has nothing to do with her, except for how his horrible attitude is pointing right at her, and turns it around to how it's all about him, which is also not true at all. "You think that's who I am? That's what I've become, that's my defining characteristic? The guy married to a Cylon?" Wow, did that come out of nowhere or what? I hate this episode so much. This is like trying to walk around if you only had bones and no connective tissue. People yelling shit like this, for an entire hour. He grabs his gun and I swear to you he says, "This guy's dirty. I think he's a liar, and I think he's killing people because he's a racist son of a bitch." In case you weren't paying attention.
