I Should Have Known

I'm really enjoying these weekly Q&A's with Mark Verheiden. Especially since we aren't getting the podcasts in a timely fashion. Remember how some key Lee/Dee scenes ended up on the cutting room floor the last two seasons? Well, it's another couples turn!

CMix: Considering you wrote this episode, what was your favorite part of it?

MV: I’ll go a little further this time, and start with what I missed. Even though we try to write these episodes to come out just slightly longer than time, it seems the (finished episodes) inevitably come in longer, and this one was no different. So I miss a few things that were shot but eventually cut.

There were, for instance, a couple Helo/Athena scenes that dealt with Athena’s feelings about the mission, and the fact that she feels truly accepted by the others on the crew. This is followed by her and Helo’s wariness/sadness when Pike starts making anti-Cylon comments and all the old suspicions come back. I think those moments would have softened what now feel like some pretty cranky interludes between her and Helo.

And seeing her express how she truly feels accepted may have helped to explain her non-reaction to hearing about what the Cylons were doing to each other. Sigh.
