Previously on Battlestar Galactica
: The Earth, inhabited by the 13th tribe of Cylons including Tyrol, Anders, Tory and Tigh, was nuked 2,000 years ago. Kara found herself, dead. Dualla committed suicide. And Ellen Tigh was revealed to be the final Cylon.
Number Six (Tricia Helfer
) and Tigh (Michael Hogan
) are in the medical station and Doc Cottle shows them an ultrasound of their baby. Tigh is a bit freaked out, but Number Six is ecstatic that their baby will be the first from a Cylon/Cylon pairing.
Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani
) is also in sick bay trying to get help for his stump, but he's forced to wait while Cottle deals with the Cylons. He's not pleased, and his disgust grows when Tyrol (Aaron Douglas
) rushes in needing help for his son Nicholas, who's peeing blood.
Admiral Adama (Edward James Olmos
) is fielding questions at a press conference, and he won't discuss concerns over a Cylon being second-in-command or his plans to form a permanent alliance with the Cylons in their fleet. The press asks about the final Cylon, and Lee (Jamie Bamber
) lets it slip that it's a woman, meaning Tigh was quick to tell his pal Bill that Ellen was a Cylon. Good for Saul.
After the conference, Vice President Tom Zarek (Richard Hatch
) expresses his opposition to a Cylon alliance, and he asks about Roslin's MIA status. Later, Bill and Lee have a meeting with Tyrol and Tigh about installing Cylon technology into the FTL drives of the fleet. There are major concerns that the people won't like working with the Cylons, especially if the Cylons are the one installing them.
Tyrol then drops the bomb that he wants the Cylons to become members of the fleet who even get a seat on the Quorum. Gaeta is vocally against the idea, but Bill is willing to take it to the president. He tries to call her, but Roslin (Mary McDonnell
) is too busy throwing away all her cancer medication.
