Rumors of a Cylon being kept on Galactica are getting more persistent and Billy advises Admiral Adama and President Roslin to just simply tell the truth. Billy has also something else to do.

Lee spots a strange acting woman in the crowd, with a device on her chest. His suspicions are right. The woman and her three accomplices take the entire bar hostage. The woman is Sesha Abinell. She lost her husband during a Cylon attack and has been spreading rumors about a Cylon conspiracy on Galactica. Sesha gives Admiral Adama two hours to deliver Boomer to her.

In the opening scene, there is a shot of the "Cylon M.O." It shows Sesha Abinel adding points to this list, she says "Sleeper agents within the fleet" as she is typing that point. This indicates she is narrating what she is typing. However, the points that she narrates after that, such as "Cylon impregnation and reproduction" and "multiple models", have already been shown on the computer list, meaning that the list and her narration were not done simultaneously.

Just what will Adama do to protect Sharon?
17 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This may be another stand-alone episode and it might not include an encounter with the Cylon fleet but it still manages to be gripping and have a surprise or two. After Dee has told Billy that she can't marry him she heads off for some R&R on the luxury ship Cloud Nine with Apollo; there they meet Billy which is awkward for all concerned and Ellen Tigh. An awkward situation is the least of their worries though as a small group of terrorists take everybody in the bar hostage. The have only one demand: they want the Cylon prisoner Sharon Valerii. Things don't go entirely the terrorists' way as Apollo manages to trigger a low Oxygen alarm before he is captured. This enables Starbuck to come enter the room in the guise of a technician; unfortunately this plan goes badly wrong and several people end up getting shot including Apollo. With no other options left Adama decides that he must give them Sharon; of course he still has a trick or two up his sleeve!

This was a pretty good episode that sees the departure of a fairly major character; something I didn't see coming when I first watched the episode despite the regularity with which characters die. We also learn just how far Adama will go to protect Sharon; a character he would happily have had killed at the start of the season… this emphasised the development his character has slowly undergone throughout the series. Interestingly while we are shown just how much Adama now trusts her the episode also manages to plant seeds of doubt in the viewers mind as to her trustfulness despite her doing nothing treacherous.
