A very sinister hospital
16 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Adama may be back in command of Galactica but he hasn't reversed Col. Tigh's declaration of martial law; in fact he is continuing the search for the fugitives President Roslin and his son Apollo. Roslin makes a statement to the fleet announcing that she will lead them back to Kobol from where they will make their way to Earth, Adama is sure that she will have few followers but ends up being surprised at just how many follow her. Back on Caprica Starbuck is wounded in a Cylon ambush and wakes to find herself is hospital with a bullet in her abdomen. The doctor informs her that she should heal soon then proceeds to lecture her about how it is her duty to bear children to help rebuild humanity; she senses something isn't quite right and upon investigating finds that the hospital is in fact run by Cylons who are trying to create human-Cylon hybrids.

This was a decent episode that contained some great scenes; I really liked the scene between Edward James Olmos and Aaron Douglas as Adama and Chief Tyrol where they discussed the nature of love and how Boomer must have been more than a machine; it is clear that Adama felt for her even though she nearly killed him. The scenes on Caprica featured a couple of decent gunfights and a rather bloody death of a Cylon. I liked how the Caprica scenes were filmed in a way that looked slightly over exposed giving everything a somewhat strange look.
