Storyline

The Fleet refuses to cooperate with Cylon engineers and Adama decides to put and end to it. He sends the Quorum a message stating that unless they wish to join Zarek in the cell, they get their people in line. However, Gaeta is already freed Zarek with the help of other would-be-revolutionists. They allow Zarek to leave Galactica on a raptor. He lands on Colonial One and enters a gathering of the Quorum. Meanwhile, Anders gets ambushed and captured. At the CIC, Gaeta cleverly manipulates everyone else until the time is at hand for the revolution to begin. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Quotes

President Laura Roslin: Felix Gaeta. Who would have thought? You probably knew him better then anyone back on New Caprica.
Dr. Gaius Baltar: Well, obviously his loyalties were divided even back then. Seems we both made rather bad choices when it comes to our Presidential aides-de-camp, wouldn't you say?
[making reference to Tory Foster, Roslin's Chief of Staff who was eventually revealed to be a Cylon. Roslin reluctantly nods her head in agreement with Baltar]

Oh Jeez...
1 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Excellent episode. Period.

Oh, yes, mutinies are SO incredibly rare. Right, of course. And we've all lived through the collapse of human civilization, and have experienced the sort of chaos that accompanies the complete breakdown of hope.

C'mon guys. Let's stop supplanting the show with our own private ideas of where the plot SHOULD go. It's not your story to tell. That's one of the things about this show that has held my attention (and I assume EVERYBODY's attention) for four years--the fact that it never goes where you EXPECT a space adventure to go (which is true of all great stories). I love it. I love that we get to earth, the shining hope and dream of mankind, only to find that it is a complete letdown.

The socio-political fallout of such situations--that is what Battlestar Galactica has always been about.
