Battlestar Galactica 2.20- Lay Down Your Burdens, Pt. 2

Shock and awe - amazing season finale to my favorite show. Sorry Kevin, if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read this post.
The episode picked up last week from the cliffhanger of Kara's rescue attempt on Caprica and the pending election.
The reveal of the new cylon was a little expected considering the events of last week, but the craziness of the athiestic priest cylon figure- zounds! Then, the election - wow- corruption on Roslin's side, the premature announcement of results followed by the retraction, and then. . .President Baltar!!
But not before, he spends quality time with Gina- her last moments before BAM - she uses his gift to her on Cloud 9. They decide to settle on New Caprica and then. . .One Year Later!!! Aaagh - a huge jump in time- we see crazy things like Adama with a moustache (Castillo RETURNS!), preggers Callie, Baltar 3-way orgy, Roslin taking care of the cylon baby, Dee promoted and on Pegasus, and if all that weren't enough - the cylons find the colony!!!
No surprise - the fleet bails and Baltar is reunited with both imaginary and real 6 (after surrendering). Also, Leoben cylon comes calling on Kara. I loved it! Ballsy move of the show to take such huge leaps in time and events. October can't come soon enough.
