At the start of the episode the hybrid Cylon tells the
other Cylons that the final five are in the colonial fleet, and so the
raiders are unwilling to attack because they sense there presence. This is
our explanation for the Cylons retreating last episode. Number Six argues
that the final five should be contacted, but some people are sceptical.
The Secret Cylon Club argue over whether Kara and
Baltar are Cylons, and they end up deciding to contact him and find out what
Adama and Kara talk. She claims to have been to Earth
pervious to her trip at the end of last season; she describes it as
‘returning home’. They argue and Kara – as always – loses her temper and
calls Adama Roslins’ Bitch and he floors her.
Brother Cavil wants the Raiders lobotomised but six is
not impressed. The Cylons hold a vote but the entire thing is thrown into
disarray when one of the Eight models vote against the others, which is
almost unheard of. It seems Six is going to be the head of a rebel faction.
On-board the Galactica they throw a ‘retirement’ party
for Lee in a nice, rather cute, sequence. While all of this goes on Tory
watches Baltar, although he is aware of this fact. He is carrying an apple
in this sequence which is wonderfully symbolic: Apples are linked to the
fall of man, and since Baltar is a Jesus surrogate this is quite cute.
He approaches Tory and they talk about the healing of
the child. Dureing this conversation another version of Baltar appears,
which of course he notices but dosen’t indicate this. He makes an
interesting reference to what he calls ‘gods song’, which sounds very much
like the Cylon trigger from the finale. Tory leaves and Baltar questions his
new apparition, who laughs at the idea that he might be Six in disguise.
This new version of Baltar makes a point of stating that Tory is special. I
personally think she knows he is a Cylon.
Roslin and Adama ‘talk’ about Kara in Roslins quarters.
He wants to know what’s going to happen if Kara is telling the truth. She
asks if he thinks this is some kind of miracle and he seems unsure. Roslin
claims Adama is just upset at the prospect of losing Kara again. He claims
she might not be the ‘dieing leader’ she once thought she was.
Lee goes to visit Kara in the brig and they talk about
his carrier change. Lee and Kara kiss, and he tells her that he believes in
After a bought of passion with Baltar Tory confesses to
him that she might be a Cylon. He tells her that Cylons can still feel, and
that this is a gift from the ‘one true god’.
Natalie (the base star six) gives Cavil one last chance
to stop what he’s doing to the raiders, but he declines. She summons in two
centurions and explains she’s been doing a little experimenting of her own.
She set’s the centurions on the Cylons and they kill quite a few people in
The episode ends with Adama giving Kara a ship – with
the cover story of a scouting mission – and sends her in search of earth.
