Flashback. Adama tells Starbuck that Zak told him all about her. He says that Zak was hinting about something in his last letter, and asks what it was. Starbuck says, "We were going to, um... You know what, it's not important." Adama guesses that Zak and Starbuck were engaged.
Adama tells Starbuck, "You did it because you were engaged." Starbuck starts crying as she says that she was so in love with Zak that it got in the way of her doing her job. "He just wanted it so much, and I didn't want to be the one who crushed him." I think this serves as a nice illustration of why Tigh was so down on crewmen dating each other. Adama tells Starbuck to reinstate the nuggets. Starbuck says that she will, and quaveringly adds, "I just want you to understand that I --" "Do your job!" Adama says in his most Satanic rasp. That brings Starbuck up short. Adama adds, "And walk out of this cabin while you still can." Adama rocks. Starbuck turns gaspingly and exits, and through the hatch we see her clutching her head like it's exploding as she walks away. Which also makes me like her. I think Starbuck just bugs me when she's spunky. When she's either giggly or tormented, I'm okay with her.
Commercials. The chupacabra ate a dog. I can't believe the people who made this didn't learn that you should never kill the dog. And the chupacabra seems to kill a lot of people, but doesn't eat them. No wonder he's still hungry. On the other hand, they actually had a guy on fire! For no reason at all! That was great!
Plummet. Starbuck falls. Her ship falls. Her seat falls.
