After 36 days of running from the Cylons, there's a fuel problem. Tylium reserves are down to five percent, only enough for two more jumps. Then Crashdown and Boomer find a huge deposit on an asteroid. There's just one big problem. Cylons have a refinery on the asteroid and the place is crawling with raiders. Adama orders an attack. Meanwhile president Roslin is getting more hallucinations due to the chamalla. She seeks advice from priest Elosha. She recognizes Roslin's story of snakes at a press conference. It reminds her of the prophecy of oracle Pythia in the Holy Scrolls. Back on Caprica Helo is getting more and more the feeling there's something going on, especially since he sees a group of centurions approaching their hiding place, lead by someone who he saw die.

M p.s. Apparently I need to add more lines.

I give it 9/10, for the reason stated above.

p.p.s. Nope, still not enough.

Tricia Helfer is quite stunning as always.

p.p.p.s. Almost now, I hope.
