Hmmm... I don't really know what I'm supposed to think about this scene.

I think Cally is trying to tell him "Hey, Boomer is a hot girl who's having fun with you now but she'll dump you as soon as she gets bored with the 'forbidden sex routine' or you start to be a drag on her career. I may not be as sexy but I'll stay true to you forever and ever... well, unless I suspect you're a Cylon in which case I'll try to beat you to death and airlock your son in a murder suicide without giving you any benifit of the doubt or a chance to explain yourself."

Well, that really wasn't fair to Cally. She wasn't going to airlock the Chief's son. She was going to airlock the boy she had with another man behind the Chief's back and decieved him into thinking was his son. Hmmm... not sure that's better.

You know, I'm not even a Cally fan. THE ***CH SHOT BOOMER! Oh, wait that's... er... hmmm... well you know I am not a fan fo Cally's. But even I think it was crappy of the writers to have that "The Chief's son is now Hot Dog's son" twist. It really makes Cally out to be a manipulative little... well... I think Cally deserved better than to be reduced to that. :gloomy: Before then you can believe that she shot Boomer to protect or avenge the Chief. Now it really makes it seem more believable that she saw a chance to get away with murder and get Boomer out of her way so she could get Tyrol.

Cally was jealous

That retcon did seem a little harsh. It doesn't seem true to Cally's character as established. Of course, her conduct in an around the New Caprica arc wasn't exemplary, either. Wonder if she ever mentioned to anyone that Boomer had forgiven her. Not too likely, since minor details like Jammer saving her life seemed a bit hazy afterwards. :grin:

Right. As seen in Litmus, for example.

That's also true.

Think about missed opportunities: Cally couldn't have been murdered by Tory and could have been the intrument of Boomer's redemption. I should write scenarii... :think:

I think in the end Cally was manipulative, jealous and a bit nuts. I mean she tried to kill Nicky when she found out the Chief was a cylon and Nicky wasn't even the chief's son.

Or she could have been the key to why Gaeta's anti-Cylon mutiny suceeded.

If they'd gone with a storyline where Boomer was being "rehabilitated" (to all appearances, anyway) then it might have been nice for Cally to put in a good word for her; it would have been a nice progression for Cally. I think we were meant to forget that Boomer was a goodie, though.

They totally redirected Boomer, with no explanation

I'm not even sure it's that coherent. Boomer is simply a different person the first time we see her after New Caprica, with absolutely zero explanation. She was just a plot device of convenience.

I'm sure The Plan will do some demented thing to try and explain it, but that's not really acceptable storytelling coming so far after the fact.

I can forgive them the retcon a little, simply because Bodie Olmos did his best work of the series during that arc; he's quite talented, and it was nice to see it. Otherwise, it was stupid, but not as stupid as the "I do believe in Cylon babies" retcon.
