Storyline

There's a shortage of supplies on the fleet, the black market is thriving. President Roslin orders that these criminals, asking outrageous prices, must be stopped. Adama agrees and colonel Fisk says Pegasus is ready to help, but he doesn't seem to be sincere. Not long after he is murdered in the presence of someone he seems to know. Apollo, meanwhile, is still struggling with his near-death experience. He seeks comfort with the prostitute Shevon, who reminds him of a woman from his past. Her daughter Paya is in need of rare antibiotics. Apollo is asked to investigate the murder of Fisk. He soon finds out Fisk was heavily involved in black market operations.

What happened to Paya?
7 February 2008 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty interesting episode--we don't often get to see much of the survivors' life outside the most powerful military and political spheres. Still, it left a lot of unanswered questions for me. Who was the woman Lee was remembering? What happened to Paya after the end of the episode? What was Zarek doing on Prometheus at the end of the episode? He appeared to be just there, not doing anything at all. Why show that? Actually I don't want to ask people to post spoilers. If someone who's seen the whole series could just tell me whether or not these questions will be answered in future episodes, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
