Storyline

Dr. Cottle works desperately to save Natalie 6 and Athena is sitting in the brig. With the Basestar having jumped into hyperspace with President Roslin and Gaius Baltar on board, Tom Zarek assumes the interim Presidency. The fleet has lost more than the President however as they had already transferred an air wing to the Cylon ship pending the attack on the resurrection hub. When one of the Raptors returns, they find a crewman on board, dead. Admiral Adama simply won't support a Zarek-led government and Lee Adama tries to arrange a compromise. He gets Romo Lampkin to help him find the right candidate to replace Zarek as interim President. Adama learns that Col. Tigh has been having sex with Caprica 6 and that she is pregnant. Realizing that he will go to any lengths to find Roslin and that he has lost his objectivity, Admiral Adama comes to a major decision about his future. Written by garykmcd

Romo Lampkin: No man is perfect. No man is less perfect than a candidate for higher office. Thus, the ranks of likely suspects is winnowed to none.
[We hear a meow from Lance, Romo's cat]
Romo Lampkin: What if we're going about this backwards, hey, Lance? What if, instead of picking names and finding fault, we ask ourselves the qualities that we want? No. No, what we need in a new chief executive and see who fits the that bill.

Romo Lampkin: Honesty, of course. ...

re: What a difference a week makes?!!
6 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to disagree! While I would never say it was 'the best' of episodes, I must say that It was terrific to watch the casts best actors really ply their trade. The intensity of the drama was fascinating. Tigh is such an interesting character and Michael Hogan plays him so well. I hope when the series ends we will see more of him in some interesting roles.

I would like to see some more action, however, as I have been missing the fantastic fleet battles of earlier seasons. I'm expecting the season will be low on action, unfortunately, but leading up to an epic final episode (or two).
