Credits. Spaceships. Explosions. Spaceships. Explosions. Spaceships. Explosions. I like it. It speaks to me. The music's a nice incidental piece, but not much of a theme song. You should be able to hum a theme song, damn it. For the sake of trivia contests, if nothing else. I dig the blipvert of scenes from the current episode at the end, though.
When we return, Wilkins helps us out by asking who Zarek is. Billy says, "He's a freedom fighter. He's a prisoner of conscience." Deanna snorts, "He's a butcher." Billy argues that Zarek's people were being exploited, but Deanna says, "I'm from Sagitarron. That man does not speak for all of us. He blew up a government building." Billy pshaws. Cally tells Apollo that if the prisoners have refused, they should move on. But Apollo wants to try making his case directly to Zarek. He really thinks that "freedom points" thing is going to be a hit, doesn't he?
Caprica. A caption helpfully informs us that it's been twelve days since the attack. Helo and Boomer have reached a deserted city. Or "the" deserted city. I'm unclear. Helo shouts for help until Boomer asks him to hush up. Helo says, "Feel like I'm in a movie," heh. 28 Days Later... does leap to mind. If this show had zombies, it would be perfect. Well, and pirates. Boomer rather dopily wonders where everyone is, and Helo suggests, "Some are dead." The captions read, "Somewhere dead," which is a much funnier answer, but I don't think that's what he actually said. Helo figures that those who survived long enough to flee did. And died somewhere else. A noise attracts their attention to a corpse rats are feeding on. Boomer gags for a bit until Helo suggests that they find a hospital and look for more anti-radiation meds. "We've only got two days' worth left," he expositions, and then reassures her that someone must be watching out for them.
