Once there, she discovers that no one even knows if the President is still alive. She's also told that the Cylons have made no demands, and didn't even respond to an offer of unconditional surrender. Then the Captain suddenly gets a message that a Cylon missile is approaching, and Apollo breaks off to try and shoot it down. He's successful in that effort, largely because the laws of inertia have suddenly been turned back on, and he's able to slew his Viper around and fly backwards while he targets the missile. It does, however, damage Daddy's Viper, and he's forced to land back on the Titanic and hope that he's not going to get grounded for wrecking the family car.
And then, down on Caprica itself, Boomer and Sacrificial Stan have made a safe landing. They're in a field, with huge, towering mushroom clouds surrounding them on all sides. It's a nice effect, and Stan can't help but stare at it as he counts the explosions. Boomer, meanwhile, is under their fighter, fixing a leaky fuel line. There's nothing sexier than a cute girl with a wrench in her hand. As long as it's not Lovewrench, of course. Stan suddenly notices something on the horizon, and he frantically orders Boomer to get out her sidearm. She does so, and then we finally pan over to see a horde of extras fleeing across the fields towards their ship. Stan and Boomer look scared, and then we go to commercial.
The SS Lusititia. Apollo is climbing out of his Viper, which he's somehow managed to park in a cargo bay that has no visible access to the outside, and PMKS is there to act obsequious and beg him to take command over Mary McDonnell. Apollo, however, notices that the cargo bay also contains a pair of "electric pulse generators" from the Galactica, thereby proving the old theatrical aphorism that an electric pulse generator shown in Act Seven must go off in Act Nine. He then heads upstairs to find Mary, who's wrapped in a blanket and reviewing various interior design concepts for converting the maintenance bay into string of nice two-bedroom apartments. Poor Man's Kevin Spacey wants to run away as fast as the Lusititia can carry them, but Mary's plan is to round up all the survivors who are trapped in orbit and then have Apollo lead them to a safe place. Apollo thinks this is a good idea, probably because his dad didn't think of it, and so he informs PMKS that Mary is still in charge.
