Eve Ate The Apple?

The title seems to have been picked out of a hat. So, hopefully it has some meaning to the bigger story arc this season. Though, I did like the episode because it answered questions, while posing more than it answered. The first twelve minutes with the S.E.T.I. made it clear to me that the 'word' is getting out whether Goss wants it too or not. But, I felt it was the only truly interesting part of the show as the rest seemed more like I was being 'told' than 'shown'.


In fact, Goss seems to be an enlightened being in how he is able to consistently be against what Beta wants. Though, it seems clear that Arnel Poe is going to be the 'leak' but only after S.E.T.I. breaks the news of there being alien life in our solar system. I feel that we also saw who is the real villain on the ship in Jen and her squinting eyes.


Though {pure conjecture} I think her 'evilness' may only last half the season when Zoe hooks up with Donner on the ship itself. This will turn Nadia into the villain as she deals with feeling betrayed by Donner even if it was 'a purely physical relationship' I paraphrase for her. This will push her to the end of the season. I have no idea what they will, or will not, leave for a second season but I hope they avoid doing the stereotypical cliffhanger.


I think that some may confuse Paula as a 'villain' but I think the writers have displayed a more acceptance of Christianity in their earlier episodes than that. So, possibly she is only so heavily religious to serve as a feint.

Does there have to be a villain?

Hasn't the show been cancelled, thus making any season two theories moot? Although I do agree with you on the title of the episode - it was pretty unrelated to the episode (unlike any of the other episode titles).

in reality, there are no villains. In Reality, there are only people with oposite interests, different goals and different views of the world. And as we all know, life writes the most fascinating stories.
Lets hope, defying gravity keeps on reminding us about that and doesn't fall into a stupid "lets fight the bad villain"-plot so many other series and movies blindly follow.

I don't think that the title was made just by pressing 'start' on the title-generator. There Is a deeper meaning. I wouldn't consider myself to be religious, but I know some things about the bible.
So the title is obviously an allusion to the biblical Eve, who -in a nutshell- ate a fruit (Wikipedia says the bible doesnt precise the fruit to be an apple) from the Tree of Knowledge, although god forbade to do so. So Eve disobeyed Gods Commandments and in some ways rebelled aginst him by hiding and covering her bareness.
Well, In DG the Astronauts (~Eve) gained knowledge (of Beta, the 'real' mission etc.) by disobeying the rules of the ground-crew (~God). The Truth is out. The astronauts gain cognition.Now that also raises the question of the consequences: Eve was thrown out of Paradise and humanity had to suffer hard work and labour-pain. I dont know if the episodes title goes this deep, but it might indicate that there will be consequences.
So, was this that far-fetched? I dont think so.
btw, im german so please excuse wrong spelling, grammar or translation-mistakes. I tried to explain what I think as clear as I could possibly do.

I dont think that there will be any villains. Lets remember that this show was pitched as a "grey's anatomy in space." Grey's has no villains.

So Jen doesn't see... Beta. She doesn't feel 'chosen'. Did anyone notice if Jen was the only one who couldn't actually see? And from what I remember she hasn't had any connection.. yet, oddly she's the biologist. It should be her 'baby'...
Hmm?

The apples went fractal just before they discovered pod 4 carried the fractal organic life form. One of the women astronauts went back to the fractal apples and cut it, bagged it and tagged it... claiming it used up the water supply... how biblical...

Actually they weren't apples, they were tomatoes.I'm not sure how I felt about the title, or the implications that Jen might be evil. I quite like her character.
I also hope there is no 'villain'.
