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

Eh?
1 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look, to the two other comments, history is full of instances where this exact thing has happened. Alexander the Great had to rethink his push East because his men were about to mutiny. Now show me a greater leader than Alexander the Great? Military men will most definitely act in that manner because they have in human history. The writers are more than likely tapping the rich historical resources to get an idea of how humans act in this situation. Not to rip the show off but it has happened before (in real life) and it will happen again. I think perhaps, with the tone of the two comments that, you are taking a bit too much interest in the characters. What I mean is, I actually yelled at Gaida when he told Adama that he was relieved. Yes, Gaida is a little turd and Zarek should have been put down long ago but even though I hate the episode because of my undying devotion to Adama, as an objective observer it was good, I just hated watching it.
