As this second episode of a two-part story starts off President Roslin and the rest of her followers are heading to the Tomb of Athena on Kobol with Sharon Valerii acting as their guide. When Sharon is alone Zarek's friend Meier approaches her and tells her how Boomer was killed and her killer went virtually unpunished in an attempt to recruit her into his plot to kill Apollo. It looks like this scheme will have to be abandoned when Commander Adama and a group from Galactica finds them; Meier decides to continue against Zarek's instructions hoping to kill both Adama and his son. At first it looks as though Sharon will help him but she uses his plot as a means of proving her loyalty. Once this confrontation is over they manage to enter the tomb of Athena and this does indeed show them the direction they must head if they are to find Earth; it will be a long journey though. While this was happening on Kobol Baltar is having problems with 'Head Six'; she has told him that there is no Cylon chip in his head and is thus a sign that he is insane, this sends him off to see the less than sympathetic Dr. Cottle.

This was a good conclusion to this story, it was nice to see the fleet reunited and Roslin back as president; I was never too happy with the idea of martial law in the fleet even though it made the story interesting and set up some nice conflicts. Once again Grace Park put in a fine performance as Sharon, I was constantly changing my mind as to what she would ultimately do the first time I watched this episode. It was also fun watching James Callis and Tricia Helfer sparring as Baltar and 'Head Six' back on Galactica as he started to believe he might be going insane.
