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. He proposes to Dee, but to his astonishment she refuses. Later he meets her in the Cloud Nine Lounge and finds out there's something going on between her and Lee. 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.

Pure suspense.
28 July 2008 | by (Windsor, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This is the very episode that assured me that the quality of the series had maintained its high standard through the second season. There is no other show on TV that keeps me on the edge of my seat for nearly every second that its on. I didn't enjoy the love triangle, simply because Apollo seemed to be done with Duala a few episodes ago, so it shouldn't even be an issue. However, the danger was real. In Starbuck's few minutes on screen, we jump from admiring her smiling at her audacity, to admiring her courage, to shaking our heads at her recklessness. Its sad to see Billy go, but in a realistic war drama like this, everyone is at risk, aren't they?

Bravo! 8/10
