Storyline

Nine months earlier Number Six died in Dr. Baltar's apartment and is downloaded into a new body on Caprica. Several Cylons await and try to comfort her. She also notices Dr. Baltar, but it seems she is the only one who can see him. Ten weeks later Boomer is killed by Cally and awakes on Caprica. When she realizes what happened, it freaks her out. In the present she still has trouble adjusting to her new life and keeps longing for Galactica. Number Six is asked to help out. Meanwhile Anders' resistance group seems to be still active. They are planning to bomb a café. On Galactica Boomer and Helo's baby is born. President Roslin and Adama decide the baby poses a threat to the fleet. Dr. Baltar tries to stop them from doing anything bad with the baby, but Roslin has to make a decision. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The other car in the underground garage is a Tatra 87, produced by the Czechoslovakian car company Tatra between 1936 - 1950. One of the breakthrough cars of its era due to its aerodynamic (steamlined) bodywork. See more »

Goofs

Caprica Six killing D'anna with a rock is considered the first act of violence, yet in season 1, a model 8 is shown killing a six (in saving Helo). Not only that, but a model 8 (Boomer) also blows up a base star in the season 1 cliff-hanger, right before shooting Commander Adama. However, both of these acts were in support of plans to trick the humans and were thus approved by 'Cylon Command.' The killing of D'anna by Caprica Six was not approved and was therefore the first unapproved killing of one Cylon by another Cylon. See more »

Quotes

President Laura Roslin: I'm not suggesting anything Doctor. If I want to throw a baby out an airlock, I'll do it.

I think this is possibly the best episode of BSG
30 September 2006 | by teamwakSee all my reviews

It was so well written. I loved that Six was haunted by her own version of Giaus, just like he has visions of Six. I love that her vision of him is so much more composed and dangerous than the real Giaus, who is more pathetic. Excellent acting by James in this.

And the Galactica Sharon who has moved into her old apartment and still keeps photos of her made up parents in her home. Great take on the character.

Both Six and Sharon are damaged goods to the new Cylons. Celebritys in a world that doesn't recognise individuallity. There realisation of the flaws in the people is excellently shown her.

And the ending when Sharon and Six trapped in the rubble decide to work together and change the Cylons. All amazing stuff.

Best hour of TV since Buffy season 6. I dare you to argue :)
