If you have that kind of information, if you know that the tracks
run out and people are going to die, it’s not only your duty to use it,
but your purpose on this earth. To be in the world, but not of it. To
help, and to heal, and to save the world, and in so doing, save
yourself. Or, as a lovely harsh woman will say years from now, to
fulfill your destiny: to love them, and take care of them, show them
the glory of peace. To see your infinite mercy matched only by your
power, and complete control. Isn’t that the definition of the righteous
man? The saint? The martyr? Kara Thrace, Laura Roslin, Tory Foster,
Natalie Six, D’Anna Three; Ellen Tigh, in her resurrection. Gaius,
Zarek, Felix. Terrorists, if Antigone’s a terrorist: to give up the
right to walk in this world, for a duty that must be obeyed for our
souls to stay intact, unbending.
If you saw the roller coaster heading toward the gap, if you were in
the middle of that nightmare, wouldn’t you do anything to stop it?
Spoilers after the jump. Sorry I didn’t get this up last night, this week just totally got away from me.
