You’re Anders, you’ve just broken up with Starbuck and it’s your first day out in the fleet. This has got to be a different situation for the guy. No one is actively shooting at him. He’s a bright, honest guy that’s not afraid of hard work.
He’s gotta die.
There isn’t room for this guy in the BSG universe; He doesn’t have enough damage. He’s even pretty well adjusted considering the last year and change he justwent through — after which his wife dumps him. I think the last time we saw someone this pure of heart he got shot in a bar while trying to protect the woman that had just dumped him for a fighter jock.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that Anders should go. I’m just stating that people of his type don’t last long against the tides of madness that routinely sweep through the fleet. I’ll go on record as saying I do hope that they develop his character more and he remains a part of the show.I just get the feeling they’ll use him like an emotional comma in Starbucks book of destruction.
