Trivia

While Boomer is escaping Galactica, she initiates her Raptor's FTL "jump drive" using an Apollo / Garmin 618C LORAN C altitude encoder; an obsolete piece of equipment by even early 21st century Earth standards. "618C" and "USA" are clearly displayed on the unit. See more »

Goofs

When Boomer is attempting to escape, Hoshi refers to her Raptor as number 719, but moments later tells Hotdog to weapons free on Raptor 219. See more »

Quotes

Slick: [to Starbuck] Listen, you may feel like hell. But, sometimes, lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

Escape and kidnap
16 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Caprica Six informs the president that she will be requesting the return of Boomer so they can try her for treason Chief Tyrol starts to visit her in the brig then goes to see the president to plead for Boomer's life. When he is refused he helps her escape from the brig. Once out she incapacitates Athena and takes Hera before preparing to take Athena's place in a routine raptor patrol. Meanwhile Starbuck is spending time in the bar and befriends the piano player; as they talk she reveals that she played as a child and they play a bit together; at this point she realises a picture Hera had given her could be music. When they attempt to play it Tigh and Tory recognise it immediately; it was the tune the four members of the Final Five heard as they approached the nebula at the end of season three.

While not packed with action this episode was still gripping and more emotional than most; first we are encouraged to sympathise with Chief Tyrol as he struggles to save a woman he loves then it is revealed that she is just after Hera and will do what it takes to get her... including rendering Athena unconscious and having sex with Helo! Grace Park did a fine job in the duel roles of Boomer and Athena. Aaron Douglas was also good as Tyrol; brilliantly portraying a man desperate to help somebody he loved then realising he'd been played. The secondary story line wasn't as good but was still interesting; perhaps that tune will have even more significance later. The atmosphere of this episode was increased by the constant creaking noises coming from Galactica's hull; clearly the old bird is approaching the end of her life as is the series.
