Storyline

Dr. Baltar has finished his Cylon detector and president Laura Roslin tries to convince commander Adama he should be the first to be tested. Since the Conroy copy told her Adama is a Cylon, she is getting more and more suspicious and even sends Billy to ask Dualla about his behavior. When suddenly a Cylon raider pops up behaving strangely, Adama is missing, raising more eyebrows. He returns however with Ellen Tigh, the presumed dead wife of colonel Tigh, who suddenly appeared. She claims she lost consciousness during the Cylon attack and was cared for on the Rising Star. Is she a Cylon? Back on Caprica, Helo notices a change in behavior of the centurions. Sharon tells him they're after her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

In the miniseries, Col. Tigh ('Michael Hogan') is seen burning a picture of his wife which, in reality, is a picture of executive producer David Eick's wife. However, this scene had to be re-shot for the series when Kate Vernon was cast as Tigh's wife, who is rescued in episode #1.9 "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down." See more »

Goofs

When Baltar was talking to Six about all of the samples he had to test with the Cylon detector he says "...47,905 blood samples. Eleven hours to test each one for Cylon indicators. 21,956 days." Yet in the previous episode Baltar puts the slide containing Boomer's blood sample into the Cylon detector and he received results within a few minutes. See more »

A momentary quality spike in a sinking show
21 April 2015 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

The simple fact that this episode's plot avoids the pseudo-scientific nonsense that plagues most of the series would be enough to make it better than average, but the real star of the show turns out to be behind the camera (as well as in front).

Edward James Olmos' direction is a breath of fresh air. The shot composition, the pacing, even the acting, are significantly better than average. At times, it's reminiscent of the (absolutely brilliant) "Our Mrs. Reynolds" episode from Firefly.

I doubt I'll manage to make it through the remaining 3 seasons, but I'll definitely check out the other episodes he directed.
