Baltar learns from Caprica Six of their ability to project themselves and imagine different surroundings which leads him to wonder if he too is a Cylon. He has told the Cylons what he knows about the location of Earth and they dispatch a Basestar to investigate. In the end, the survey ship is infected with a virus killing everyone aboard. Aboard the Galactica, Lt. Gaeta has been reviewing Baltar's work in deciphering the map they recovered on Kobol. He too thinks he know what it all means. Of greater concern however is the wedge between those who stayed with the fleet and those who were on the ground fighting the Cylons. Starbuck and Colonel Tigh in particular are quite vocal in complaining about those who stayed behind and it's left to Admiral Adama to lay down the law. Written by

The title "Torn" alludes to the original plot for this episode: the relationship between Kara and her fake daughter, Kacey. However, the producers felt Kara wasn't still able to face the time she spent in New Caprica with Leoben, Kacey's fake father, and this plot was dropped. Instead of that, they focused the episode in the secondary plot, which dealt with an illness which was infecting the Cylons. Anyway, the title "Torn" still references how the human collective felt after New Caprica, with a lot of conflicts between people who stayed under the Cylon occupation and people who ran away aboard the fleet's spaceships.
