Galactica CIC: sparks still flying, but this time it's because of a soldering gun and not being shot all over the place and nearly killed. Gaeta enters in civvies and Tigh is on him with a quickness. "You gotta be kidding! Who gave this man permission to enter the CIC?" Helo tells him it was Adama: "Communications took some serious hits during the rescue, and Mr. Gaeta's offered to help with the repairs." Tigh freaks out about how Gaeta is a turncoat and collaborator and contributed to the deaths of thousands, but yet: "The old man needs his phones fixed, and suddenly, all is forgiven." Helo tries to do his Helo thing: "Cylons find us, we're gonna need every hand we've got." Tigh's like, they totally did already? "The Cylons found us, Mr. Agathon." (Watch very carefully whenever a New Caprican interacts with somebody who stayed with the Fleet during the occupation. I have this feeling that the whole conflict is going to be central, like maybe civil war central, and sooner rather than later. I don't blame them, though: the New Caprica survivors have like no sense of humor about anything.) "Your friend Gaeta was on the welcoming committee." He gets right the hell in Gaeta's face: "Hey! Look at me. Long as you're here, maybe you can help me out. I'm missing something. I lost it in detention. Since you're so buddy-buddy with the Cylons, maybe you know where it is? How 'bout it?" There's spit coming out. "Do you know where my eye is?" Damn. Adama comes in shouting Saul's name, and he barks orders at the crew before dragging Saul off for a little talk. Saul stumbles. It wasn't just his eye they took, and worse: they didn't make him cut out his own eye. It was the resistance that did that.
