Gaius Baltar is back on the air, sending his creepy religious message of love to all his listeners. Caprica Six shows up and he’s thrilled to see her again. Later while he’s shaving, he notices Kara sitting on the toilet in the men’s room taking a dump. That’s one classy lady.

She asks if he really believes in angels, after which she tells him the truth about finding herself dead on Earth. She gives him the dog tags (her dog tags) she took from the dead body and asks him to do some science stuff like dusting off his old Cylon detector to find out what the frak is going on.

Later at the funeral for the dead technicians working on the ship, Baltar interrupts to tell everyone about the power and the glory of everlasting life. His proof is that the blood on the dog tags was from a dead body and it matched the DNA of Kara Thrace. Everyone freaks out, Adama threatens to throw Baltar in the brig and Kara slaps Baltar, all of which are appropriate responses.

Kara visits Sam, who the Cylons have hooked up to the Hybrid mainframe to see if they could reboot him. They failed, so Kara asks for some time alone and professes her love for Sam before pulling a gun to put him out of his misery. Just then a program starts and Sam begins talking like the Hybrid, a bunch of incoherent nonsense that ends with, “You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace. You will lead them all to their end.” Then he restarts and mumbles random directions.

When Tigh shows up, he’s told Anders is connected to the Cylon goop in the hull and can even access the FTL drive and force a sudden jump. Tigh wants him shut down. Instead, Kara decides that Anders is important and that “All Along the Watchtower” is the key to it all, so they work together to figure it out. When she touches him, he suddenly gets a new command.
