She wants to know who is spreading rumors about her sharing her visions with the Cylons.

Episode I been waiting for!!!
18 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best BSG episode of the season. The acting is not forced and the action is packed. The cylons make a deal with the humans. This is a huge moment in the series. Finally, the cylons and the humans negotiating.

The Dratitus mission scene is awesome. It brings more depth to the series. It just feels like more is going on than just the lonely Galactica. Finally, we get closer to the truth of the lost cyclon. But it's still unclear, if it's not Starbuck they have a lot of explaining to do.

The highlights of this episode is when the cylon Starbase jumps above the Galactica. I loved it when everyone was like "frack it's(cylon starship) on top of us." I give this episode 8/10. Some bad highlights were the sappy scenes with Roselin and Arabic cylon and Baltar.
