The actor playing Fisk must have been happy about this development - you get a chance to play a new major character in an incredibly popular series, then three episodes on you get garrotted - easy come, easy go...
I thought this was a great episode, one of the best, but it was very hard to follow at the start with all the flash forwards and flash-backs within flash-backs. At first I thought I had missed one episode somehow.
Good to see Adama and son back on speaking terms, and Baltar and Tigh shown up for what they are. Tom Zarek actually came out of this looking reasonably good.
