Storyline

Funeral services are held for Cally Tyrol but the Chief feels guilty about what happened to his wife. He's slipping on the job as well and makes a serious mistake that could have resulted in death for the crew of a Raptor. Harsh words with Admiral Adama in Joe's Bar results in him being demoted from Chief to Specialist and designated for reassignment. Col. Tigh visits Caprica Six in the brig to advise that her request the see the child Hera has been denied. He's shocked at what he sees however. Meanwhile, Gaius Baltar and his acolytes are attacked and beaten in their quarters by the Sons of Ares, a vigilante group. As a result, he goes on the offensive and desecrates a temple in revenge. President Roslin promises him she will pursue his attackers but also seeks the Quorum of Twelve's support in passing new legislation to reign him in. Written by garykmcd

Serious improvement on previous episodes this season
27 April 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Finally an episode that showed what I loved in the show. All the dramatic developments from previous episodes do have an impact on the characters. Baltar is becoming a true martyr and even a messiah if it continues like this. Will it be for the better or worse? Saul,Tory and the Chief are coming to terms with being cylons. It is a delight to see them struggling. Will they turn? Or will they side with the humans like they have been doing. It is impossible to predict. I have no clue what the writers want to do with the final five.Will they become a real threat? Or are they just a gimmick? I would like to believe that they do have a genuine purpose in explaining some matters. More and more it becomes clearer that Baltar is in the middle of all this and that he and the final five are connected somehow. I am glad that the dramatic elements are back. Although I missed actual plot developments. If the show continues like this then I am confident the show will be back in form.
