Commander William Adama:[after being reunited on Kobol, the President and the Commander sit down by a campfire to talk] You interfered with a military mission and you broke your word to me.
President Laura Roslin:It's the second part that really bothers you isn't it?
Commander William Adama:Laura I forgive you.
President Laura Roslin:Thank you Bill. I didn't ask for your forgiveness.
Commander William Adama:Well, you have it anyway.
President Laura Roslin:Lt. Thrace says there are survivors on the Colonies. There are people fighting against the Cylons everyday. They are fighting for their homes, their future.
Commander William Adama:I see.
President Laura Roslin:It doesn't give you pause? Maybe your impulse the day the Cylons attacked was right. Maybe we should have stayed and fought for our homes. Maybe the President of the Colonies should have stayed and fought with her people.
Commander William Adama:I didn't come here for this. I didn't come here to lay blame or to catalogue our mistakes. We made a decision to leave the Colonies after the attack. We made the decision. It was the right one then and it's the right one now. Because every moment of every day since then is a gift.
President Laura Roslin:From the gods.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
