And it is with this post that I actually acknowledge that Caprica is over for now. A worrying thing? A little birdie at SyFy told me that the October return date that’s been bandied about on the intarwebz is a rumor, and that there’s not actually a confirmed return for Caprica. They don’t know when it’s coming back yet, and they’re “hoping” for Fall.
I hope that means that there’s a possibility that Caprica could be back SOONER rather than later. September anyone? Hello? I also hope that SyFy is smart enough to renew this show. I’ve been hearing people just get turned on to the show NOW. Give them the summer to catch up, give us the fabulous second half of the first season, and we’ll all be yours for Season Two, SyFy.
That said, here’s Part Two of my “End of Line” review. Enjoy!

Of all the characters that represent ideals, Sister Clarice and Barnabas are probably the most straightforward. What’s interesting, though, is that the ideals they defend have very little to do with the religion they’ve attached themselves to. They are each concerned with defending their own power. Surprisingly, it is Barnabas who seems to believe in The One True God the most. Yes, he is violent and concerned with maintaining control over his cell, but when he prays it feels sincere. Sister Clarice, on the other hand, seems to be cultivating the image of Devout Leader without being too terribly concerned with belief at all. She displays her strongest emotion not while praying or when talking about God, but when her authority is challenged, her power is threatened, or when her manipulations go awry. She is similar to Kai Winn from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, another female religious leader more concerned with her own power than the power of the God(s) she serves, and this makes her fascinating. It has been a slow build for Sister Clarice’s character, but now that we can see what she truly is – a woman more concerned with killing a rival than with her faith – she’s exciting to watch. Clarice lets no one, male or female, get in her way, and when they do, she plans accordingly.
