The attack to rescue everyone on New Caprica begins. The Galactica encounters four rather than the expected two Cylon Basestars. The end appears in sight but they get help from a welcome but unexpected source. On the planet below, Tyrol and Anders lead the attack to free everyone from the prison. Anders finds Starbuck but she won't leave without Kacey. Her successful return to the Galactica results in mixed emotions. Colonel Tigh must decide what to do about his wife Ellen after she admits to giving the rendezvous coordinates to the Cylons. Hera doesn't make it off the planet. Written by

Admiral Adama shaves his mustache with a Merkur "Vision" double-edged safety razor: a modern design of a shaving technology prevalent from the early 1900s through the early 1970s, when it was replaced by disposable, multi-bladed "cartridge" razors. His shaving technique, however, is much too aggressive for such a razor. If there was a blade present in the razor he was using, mashing it in to his face and dragging it downward, handle-down, Edward James Olmos
would have suffered many cuts and horrible razor burn. Double-edged razors, still popular with shaving enthusiasts today, require a very light touch, and a very "shallow" shaving angle, with the handle at an approximately 45º angle to the face, depending on the razor. See more
Near the beginning of the episode after the scene with Tigh and his wife, you see Gaius Baltar talking about the Cylons being smug as the entering credits are rolling, if you watch closely, as it is easy to miss, as Gaius walks with the camera following him you can see a green screen where a window would be to the left of him briefly before it is blocked.
