Circle. "It's a jury," Tigh explains to the new member. "I wanna make that clear. It's not about settling scores or personal grudges. It's a jury." Chief continues: "We're just dealing with the worst of the worst. People that did more than put on an NCP uniform or make a deal with the Cylons." (That is the darkest humor ever: "We killed Ellen and Jammer the other day, as a warm-up, but now we're going after the real bad guys." That's intentional and brilliant, wording it that way.) "They're the killers," crazies Barclay all over the place. "The real traitors." Starbuck is like, but none of this is legal, right? Not that she'd have a problem with it, at all -- that's clear -- but she's getting her footing. "No, no," Chief insists. "It's legal." (Llllllllllllllllllllobotomy!) Seelix hands over the "death order" that Gaeta apparently invented, dictated to himself, typed up for himself, signed off as a notary public, and then carried out. On the people that are still alive. "You gotta be kidding me!" Kara snorts, and they have her. Just like that. Using Kara's captivity, which clearly they're all aware she was detained and not in the usual way, is worse than guns in the Temple. Girlfriend is unhinged. They don't any of them get a pass on this one. Gross me the fuck out.
"That's why we need to know right now," says Tigh. "Are you in or out?" She clears her throat. "In." He lets her study the kangaroo evidence before kangaroo court comes back into kangaroo session, but Kara's stuck on the huge lie part they all want so desperately to believe: "You telling me that Gaeta saw this list and didn't do a damn thing about it?" Yes, even though it's a fantasy. Well, not "telling" exactly, more like "presenting you with circumstantial evidence and hoping you see red." "We have no idea of knowing what Gaeta did or did not do when he saw the list," Chief says hurriedly, because this is totally totally legal and a really good idea except for how his stupid wife managed to just remember that he murdered Jammer the other day, but other than that it's all rules and regs from here on out. Lobotomy! ("In other words," Cavil explains -- and it's a good explanation for something that's always confused me, complete with air-quotes -- "they're worried what 'God' might think if they commit murder: they're covering their existential asses." Speaking of this very death order, and all.)
Kara immediately votes, on seeing the "evidence," and breathes convincingly about "my Gods, the whole thing's like a bad dream only we woke up and the traitors are all still here" and that shit. She's just as culpable as them. In some ways more, because at least she knows she's suffering from violent PTSD right now, and she just doesn't care. Seelix asks for Chief's vote, but Anders interrupts. Tigh tells him to get lost, but he demands to speak to his wife. Tigh rolls his eye at her. "We already have your vote. Take a break."
