"It's all right, Ellen," Saul says. "It's over now." Just as meaningless and well-meant, but she grasps at it, hoping he's awakening. "How much do you remember?" she asks, crying and hopeful. And before he can tell her much more than that he's seen only flashes so far, Lee steps in to change the subject once again. Laura teaches them well, doesn't she? "Samuel Anders was badly injured. He's not responding." Ellen's shocked out of her romantic reverie, horrified, but Saul assures her Sam's not dead yet. Desperately afraid, she begs to see him. "I want to see him and the others," she insists, begging more than she ever has. This is the way Tory felt for Laura, until her heart was broken; this loneliness and fear are what got Cally killed. Laura won't meet Bill's eyes, so he mumbles that they'll see what they can do. Laura and Lee leave, glancing at Bill, who watches their reunion and feels him pulling away, away again. He caresses his wife's hair, and she raises his patch, and Bill leaves them alone.
Their eyes devour each other, passion reignited after two years of pain and captivity. He tries to tell her, about Caprica and Liam, but he doesn't try too hard. She kisses his words away, and throws him down on the wardroom table. For a moment, he sees a Six rising up, pushing against him, but then she's Ellen again. And Caprica, to the Final Five tune, drops her meal of algae mush on the floor of their quarters, and doubles over, and heaves with tears and gasps of pain.
Gaius hides behind a piece of equipment, watching Paulla and Jeanne unload and catalog the weapons and food they've collected. He walks up finally, ready to be beloved; nobody even notices him. He clears his throat, finally, and Jeanne throws herself on him, shouting his name, overjoyed. His joy in returning to her is barely plausible as he calls out to Paulla, who gives him a cold welcome. "We were wondering if you were coming back," she says. Nothing quite so scary as a zealot scorned. Gaius laughs at her, like a silly wayward girl -- "Of course I was coming back!" -- and the girls surrounding him laugh along. He asks what's been going on, and Paulla sighs, tired and pissed.
