I realized I skipped over this episode which is major and really violent in tricky ways. Clarice has Lacy locked up in her attic where Clarice’s husbands are drugging her and abusing her; Clarice’s wives are pissed. Eventually they ship Lacy off to Gemenon to the terrorist training camp/religious retreat. On the way there, the ship is hijacked and all kinds of crazy bloodshed goes down and then the hijackers are all “JK! We are Soldiers of the One also, this was a training exercise to see how you handle pressure.” Lacy is like, “But this other recruit is actually dead,” and they say “Oh that part was real.”  Meanwhile in V world Zoe gets the shit beaten out of her for about 10 minutes and then spends 10 more in a brutal fight with Tamara (above) and you don’t see that a lot on tv—for one thing, the violence on Caprica always includes actual reaction shots and wounds, which like 99% of tv never does, plus teen girls using weapons and fighting dirty, not sexy. Meanwhile Daniel gets forced into killing one guy (literally the guy pretends to shake hands with Daniel and then sticks the knife in Daniel’s hand and impales himself) and is all emo about it. He makes the Taurons clean it up, because his robots are too good for it, and they are like, “We cannot wait to be rid of all of you racist fucks.”

I’m really enjoying your Caprica posts - I watched BSG and loved it, and I was hesitant about watching Caprica but am now reconsidering it…

Oh you must! It is a million times more dimensional and says so much about capitalism and money and race and religion and gender and feelings. AND ROBOTS AND TERROR.

Clarice brainwashes Lacy and sends her to terrorist training camp at the monotheist religious camp on Gemenon. But the Soldiers of the One have also been stealing military robots and it turns out Zoe made all the robots obey Lacy. Boom. Two teenage feminists basically change the entire worlds.

This is an amazing part of Caprica. Mother, the head of the monotheistic terrorist religion, is played by Meg Tilly as in SISTER AGNES FROM AGNES OF GOD. I had totally forgotten. HOW DEEP IS THAT, IT IS A CHUNNEL’S WORTH OF MEANING.

Caprica is getting amazing. Sister Clarice believes that the avatars are apotheosis, life after death, resurrection. She is totally getting high all the time and stealing code. Since Amanda is Zoe’s mother, Clarice thinks she is also God and Amanda is going crazy and seeing her dead brother so they get high together. The men are doddering around making business deals and watching sports. Like literally that is what they do. Lacy is infiltrating the other terrorist cell and since she is totally like “I will kill anyone and blow up anything, also I will take your pain ritual to level you can’t even deal with,” they are totally afraid of her. Also Clarice kills one of her husbands by electrocuting him in the bathtub with a tv (SYMBOLIC) and before he dies she is all “I forgive you but it’s God you have to worry about.” And Clarice is so crazy but you know what’s going to happen and that she is totally right, Zoe is the mother of everyone. AHHHHH

Tamara Adama is boring until she gets blown up and revived as an avatar. She goes around killing people in the virtual world and then she and Zoe do battle and decide to kill everyone and be totally rad hackers. She plays some complicated tricks on her father.

Amanda Graystone has the best clothes of all. She can’t believe her daughter is a terrorist and killed a bunch of people until she suddenly does and then she totally embraces it and goes screaming to everyone MY DAUGHTER KILLED ALL THOSE PEOPLE and then she gets high all the time with Clarice Willow on Scorpion Ambrosia and has hallucinations. She seduces Clarice and infiltrates Clarice’s group love family/monotheistic sect/terrorist group. At one point Daniel Graystone makes a robot Amanda but she hates him too.
