Storyline

Admiral Adama is playing a deadly serious game of chicken with the Cylons. Nuclear missiles are armed and Adama seems ready to destroy the planet if the Cylons don't relent. The Cylons are concerned about Number 3's independence and refusal to follow an order from the group. It becomes clear that D'Anna Biers isn't much interested in the Eye of Jupiter but wants to see the Final 5. She gets her wish but they are clearly not what she was expecting. On the algae planet, Apollo orders Dee to mount a rescue mission for Starbuck whose Raptor was shot down. Inside the temple, Tyrol continues his efforts to find the Eye of Jupiter. Athena is determined to get her baby back and knows one way to get aboard the Cylon Basestar. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

As in "The Eye of Jupiter (1)," the scenes on the planet Algae in this episode were filmed in Kamloops, British Columbia, off East Shuswap Road. The location was chosen for its distinctive geological features like the hoodoos (tall, thin spires of rock of varying thickness said to resemble a totem pole). Kamloops (in south-central British Columbia) is relatively close to Vancouver, where most scenes of the series are filmed. See more »

As season three reaches the half way point tensions are high; Adama is preparing to use nuclear weapons to prevent the Eye of Jupiter falling into Cylon hands, Athena and Helo take drastic action in an attempt to save Hera; Apollo orders his wife to attempt to rescue Starbuck and the Cyclons are divided as D'Anna defies their decision to turn back from the planet... and the planet's star could go nova as any time! The first of these dilemmas is quickly resolved when all but one of the Cylon heavy raiders turns back from the planet; that one continues because D'Anna is certain that the Eye of Jupiter will reveal the identities of the final five Cylons to her and her alone. Athena's actions to save Hera are both brave and potentially foolhardy; she must die and be reborn back on the Resurrection Ship where must persuade the others that she has returned to them without giving away any of Galactica's secrets.

This episode was a great way to reach the mid-season break; there were a few resolutions and more questions raised; most particularly who are the final five: D'Anna's reactions in the temple suggest that she recognised at least one of them but she gave no clue as to who it was; also why does the symbol from the temple look so much like a drawing Starbuck had drawn without ever seeing it... does she really have a destiny? The acting was solid as always, particularly from Lucy Lawless who played D'Anna; it is a pity that we might not see her character again for some time if at all. There is also a decent amount of action as Dee attempts to reach Starbuck and the other people on the ground confront Centurions in an attempt to prevent them reaching the temple... not to mention the star going nova at a critical moment! Having raised so many interesting questions I'm just glad I'm watching the series on DVD so won't have to endure a mid-season break before finding out what happens next!
