Kara Thrace - Wikipedia
Her initial relationship with Duncan is marred by the revelation that she may be Trust us, though, for these three, tortured is an understatement. . And considering Kara and Lee are two very fucked up individuals, they made. And the most complicated and fascinating of all was the relationship between But I can't think of a better word to describe Kara and Lee. If Mon-El's inquiry into Kara's relationship status on this week's Supergirl didn't raise your eyebrow, you might want to give that last scene a.
So just on THAT level I have read a few spoilers for Season 2 but I am really trying to stay somewhat spoiler free I don't mind if the writers don't always touch on Kara and Lee And I don't think those pesky regulations will be an issue for to many years, unlike some other shows.
After all, there are only what, 48, something humans left, and Roslyn and Adama both agreed that people needed to start having babies. So if having babies is a priority, then it wouldn't be a really good idea to restrict who people can have babies with, would it?
Plus, as much of a pain as Zarak is, he was right when he said that everything has changed. The old rules that they once lived by, don't always apply anymore.
KatG May 13th, And for those of you reading "Twelve" the whole series is up here http: Drewzy May 13th, I've been all for those two since I started watching the show. Loving all the piccys. D CKO May 13th, Blue Banrigh May 13th, The essay is about how Aeryn is the more masculine and Crichton is the more feminine without undermining either's ablility to be a hero.
She is the superior soldier and he is the brains though that's not to say that Kara is dumb. Aeryn and Crichton are more extreme examples while Lee and Kara are less so. TameFarrar May 14th, Thats a really good example: Blue Banrigh May 14th, They don't need to get romantically involved right now, actually I prefer it if the didn't I like the banter and occasional punch up stage. I'm quite attached to their scene in 33 about the stims and how she gives him a lecture.
He's just standing there looking like he's deciding whether or not to be ashamed or angry. If Kara stays on Caprica then there isn't much opportunity for ship is there? But the reunion should be fun. At least Lee won't be able to comment on how much time she spent in the brig since it looks like he'll be living there.

D And both will most probably be considered social pariahs, one is a deserter and the other is a mutineer. Jeff O'Connor May 14th, Do we really have to compound the names? CKO May 14th, No, but all the cool kids were doing it.
Vala May 14th, TameFarrar May 18th, I really had to laugh at the face Lee has BUT as Farscape showed us Sci-Fi can pull the rug out anytime Kara doesn't pay attention to them anyway: D spoilers for season 2 Do NOT read if you do not want to be spoiled about Kara and episode 5 I really hope that some of the spoilers I am reading are wrong OR take away her ability to have children.
CKO May 18th, Shipperahoy May 18th, I just read the episode 6 spoilers and Ship Mum At least that is how it reads to me D Shipperahoy May 18th, I went back and read it again and it could definately be the way you took it. It's one of those things where the wording is a bit tricky so it could go either way but I'd much prefer your version.
D CKO May 18th, Blue Banrigh May 18th, That would pretty much suck I so hope it is NOT what happens Although this marks the beginning of a new resolve and the end of her self-destructive depressive behaviours, tensions between her and Apollo flare up again after she shoots him in a friendly fire incident during a hostage stand-off. New Caprica[ edit ] The complication of Starbuck and Lee's relationship was furthered when a drunken night on the newly found planet, New Capricaended with Starbuck and Lee having a one-night stand where they both expressed their love for one another.
When Lee woke up alone the next morning, he soon discovered Kara had proposed to and married Anders. Lee soon marries newly commissioned Lieutenant Anastasia Dualla while Starbuck moves planetside with Anders. After an all-night celebration of the first founder's day for New Caprica, tired and hungover, Starbuck and Tigh put their differences behind them. They even greet each other fondly following Tigh's demobilization and arrival at the colony.Dragon*Con 2012 Day 1 - Jamie Bamber & Katee Sackhoff Discuss Lee & Kara
Her relationship with Lee, however, worsened to the point that they were not on speaking terms and he had little interest in helping her, even when Anders contracted a serious bout of pneumonia. After the Cylon invasion of New Caprica, she is imprisoned inside a mental facility, designed to look like her own former Caprican apartment. While there, a Leoben model tries to convince her they are destined to be lovers. For four months Starbuck denies his advances, killing him several times despite knowing he would be back.
Then she is presented with a young girl named Kacey that Leoben claims is their daughter, created with the ovary removed when she was in the egg farm. Initially she refuses to believe it and wants nothing to do with the girl, but when Kacey is badly injured in a fall down a staircase, she calls on Leoben for help and seems to grow more attached to both of them.
During the uprising on New Caprica, however, Starbuck once again kills Leoben and escapes with Kacey. Kacey and her real mother are reunited on the Galactica's flight deck after the flight from New Caprica. Starbuck is left there alone on the flight deck, stunned and in disbelief. Back with the fleet[ edit ] After her situation on New Caprica and the truth about Kacey, she is left simmering with rage, which causes her to be reckless and destructive, almost killing herself in a Viper training exercise.
After being removed from flight status by then-Major Lee Adama, she takes up residence in the pilot's mess along with Colonel Tigh, drinking and lowering the morale of Galactica's pilots by attempting to draw divisions between New Capricans and those who stayed with the fleet.
Admiral Adama gives her an ultimatum; either straighten up and act like an officer, or 'get the hell off his ship' and find another ship to live on. Starbuck changes her attitude after Adama literally knocks her to the ground after she thumbs her nose at him.
Starbuck's relationship with Lee Adama takes another dramatic turn after she angrily challenges him to a brutal and emotional boxing match aboard Galactica. Their intense feelings for each other soon lead to an affair drawing resentment from their respective spouses. However, when Lee asks Starbuck to divorce Sam, she refuses due to her strong religious beliefs on the sacrament of marriage.
Lee argues she is breaking her vows just by being with him, but Starbuck states she's merely bending the rules. Lee then decides he can no longer cheat while still married to Dualla.
Later, Lee and Anders begin to voice their dislike for each other just as Starbuck's Raptor is shot down by the Cylons and she is reported missing. Anders vows to find her, but their position is outnumbered; Lee orders Anders at gunpoint to stay put and help defend their outnumbered position. Starbuck suffers severe hand burns in the crash and is rescued by Dualla. After they escape the doomed algae planet, Starbuck makes one final effort to have a relationship with Lee, this time offering to leave Anders if he will leave Dualla.
Lee chooses to try to make his own marriage work instead. Kara's experiences with Leoben, as well as her troubled childhood, eventually come back to haunt her. She has nightmares involving both Leoben and the mandala supposedly connected to her "destiny".
She asks an oracle about her dreams and is told Leoben understands her better than she understands herself, and he will show her "destiny. She is forced to abandon pursuit when her Viper is at risk of implosion from the pressure. Although she felt several impacts during her pursuit, then- Chief Galen Tyrol finds no damage to her Viper and gun camera footage showed no evidence of any Raider, leading many to believe Kara had been hallucinating.
Adama is concerned Kara might have burned out, but he leaves the decision to ground her up to Apollo as CAG.
Apollo decides to give her another chance, and offers to fly as her wingman on her next patrol. During the patrol, Starbuck sees another Raider and again pursues. Her Viper is hit by debris and she is knocked out.
She experiences a conversation with an Avatar with the appearance of Leoben set in her apartment on Caprica.
The avatar forces Kara to confront her past, the abuse she received from her mother and the guilt she feels for leaving her mother to die alone. The avatar comments Kara has been running from her past just as she has been running away from death for her entire life, and implies eventually she will have to confront her fears and her "destiny".
Moments before regaining consciousness in her Viper, Kara realizes the person she is speaking to is not the Cylon Leoben Conoy, and states, "You're not Leoben. Starbuck keeps flying into the storm, and tells Lee to leave her. She is encompassed by a white light and certain calmness.
Apollo witnesses her Viper imploding, with no sign that she survived. In the cliffhanger Season 3 finale, " Crossroads, Part II ", Starbuck reappears in the same Viper that she was flying at the time she disappeared and is discovered by Apollo, appearing to be alive and well,  but the reason for her sudden resurrection has yet to be revealed.
She tells Apollo not to "freak out" it is really her and she has been to Earth, and will show them the way. Kara returns in Season 4 believing she had only been absent for six hours, but Anders informs her she was really gone for two months. The crew is wary of her return except for Lee, who greets her with an enthusiastic and long hug, and is so grateful for her return he is willing to overlook the possibility she is a Cylon, and he may be willing to accept her even as a Cylon.
This becomes evident in Lee's questioning of his father whether if it had been his son, Lee's brother, who returned, would it have made a difference whether he was Cylon or human. She experiences frustration upon her return to Galactica, as no one believes it is really her, and because of President Roslin's refusal to be guided by what she believes is a Cylon trick. The crew continues on the course Roslin had previously decided upon and move further away from the area Kara believes is Earth's true location.
She attempts to encourage Adama to follow her suggestions, but when he refuses, she fears his being romantically linked to Roslin has unjustly influenced him. Feeling hopeless and fearing as they make more jumps farther away she will lose the "feeling" of Earth's location, she becomes desperate and holds President Roslin at gunpoint.
During her standoff with the President, she tries to reason and appeal to the President's emotions. She hands the gun to Roslin and insists she shoot her if she really believes she is a Cylon, to which Roslin responds to by saying "They made you perfect, didn't they?
Starbuck is thrown into the brig and has a hostile confrontation with Adama, who angrily says, "You are so stupid you couldn't wait. You just lost your best ally. Now who is going to save you? She also accuses him of playing "wet nurse" to the president, to which he responds by throwing her to the floor and leaving her crying. Later, after Adama attempts to have a conversation with Roslin, which turns into a psychological sparring argument, he rethinks his decision and allows Kara to secretly look for Earth on a barge called Demetrius.
Aboard Demetrius - Looking for Earth[ edit ] After taking command of Demetrius to find a way to Earth, Starbuck finds herself at odds with the crew when her orders cause them to doubt her command ability. With only two days remaining until the ship must return to the Fleet, her command is further compromised by her refusal to explain her actions and her decision to bring the Cylon Leoben aboard after having found him in a damaged Cylon Heavy Raider.
Eventually, she finds herself torn between following Leoben's advice to forge an alliance with the fragmented Cylons, or distrusting him because of what that risk entails. The tension with the crew leads to a mutiny, after which Kara acknowledges her errors and instead takes a small crew with her in a Raptor to visit the base ship. There, she meets with the base star's hybrid and is told, "You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace.
You will lead them all to their end. They find wreckage of a Viper with Starbuck's tail number and what appears to be her charred corpse. After removing the dog tags and wedding ring, Kara asks "If that's me lying there, then what am I? He responds by backing away, as if recoiling from the realization that she is indeed the "Harbinger of Death.
Starbuck's description as "the harbinger of death" and Leoben's caution to her not to venture into the woods, "you might not like what you find," were elements of the episode's homage to the original Planet of the Apes. Zaus gave Colonel Taylor the same warning, and instructed Dr. Cornelius to read from the sacred scrolls that man was the harbinger of death.
Like Taylor, Starbuck was a human astronaut and military officer exploring a post-apocalyptic Earth. Mutiny[ edit ] In " The Oath ", Captain Thrace discovers civilians and a few mutinous Marines and crewmen arming themselves for battle.
She rushes back to her quarters to prepare for battle, grabbing her sidearms and ammunition. While searching for Adama, Kara and Lee free loyalists found in the brig which includes Anders, who is then shot by a mutinous marine upon leaving. Kara, refusing to leave his side, pressures Lee and those who escaped to leave her in order for them to search for Adama. At first she becomes annoyed by his repetitious playing, stating he reminds her of her father when he did nothing but play the piano and she mentions how her father left her and her mother to pursue it as a career.
Over the course of the episode, Starbuck befriends the pianist and ends up working with him to try to finish his song. Toward the end, the piano player writes down the notes Starbuck hums out on a sheet of paper. The pattern reminds Starbuck of a drawing of colored dots the Cylon-Human child, Hera Agathon had given to her earlier. She lines the child's drawing up with the notes the composer had drawn and they match exactly. When Starbuck and the pianist play the notes, the song is instantly recognized by Saul Tigh and Tory Foster — who are sitting at a nearby table with Ellen Tigh — as the song " All Along the Watchtower " they heard in their heads when they learned they were the final Cylons.
Ellen, of course, remembers it from Earth. A bewildered Saul asks Starbuck where she heard the song. Starbuck responds she played it as a kid and begins to mention her father, but stops short when she realizes the piano player, her father, was either a figment of her imagination or a vision.
In the episode " Daybreak, Part I " Starbuck tries to get answers from Anders about the song, even turning notes into numbers to see if there is a mathematical solution. After saving Hera, and as the Colony is being destroyed, Starbuck is ordered by Admiral Adama to jump the Galactica away to safety. Although she has no coordinates, Adama tells her to make a blind jump to anywhere. Recalling the musical notes and the numbers she extrapolated from it, she inputs them into the computer; the resulting jump puts Galactica near a habitable planet the fleet decides to settle on.
It is revealed this new planet is our world, someyears ago; Admiral Adama names it "Earth", believing it better matched the dream the fleet had been seeking than did the original Earth which had been found destroyed by nuclear war. Once settled on the world, Kara says a final goodbye to Admiral Adama and tells Lee she's leaving - her 'job is done', having indeed led the human race to their end the end of their journey - and will not be coming back.
Kara then disappears into thin air and is not seen again. Seeing her gone, Lee tells her ghost she "won't be forgotten", echoing a moment from the Daybreak episodes. What really happened to Kara is left ambiguous.
According to Katee Sackhoff, "So when she at the end was saying goodbye to [Anders], I think that she was saying goodbye to their bodily forms," she said. I think they're both dead, but I think she's with him. That was a decision that we made, because I selfishly wanted her at peace, and the only way to do that was to have her with someone at the end, or to be with the person she wanted to be with. That's kind of where I think she is.
