Gaius does some expositing: "Nicely done. You timed it perfectly." There's an unnecessary flashback to the moment of the smash, with unnecessary Gaius commentary: "Scratch your face with the side of your fingernail the moment the glass hits the wall." Point being, Chip Gaius is the voice of Six wondering if there's any her to her, or if she's so in her head that a real reaction is impossible. Can she reach out to this woman, or is it just manipulation all the way down? With all the hallucination and bullshit she's going through, does she even have the right? Is she just Biers's bitch in this? Can she trust herself to do anything authentically? Can she love? Is she alive? Sharon brings bandages: "Never saw a Cylon show fear before. Especially the Sixes. Usually so hardcore." Gaius smirks, and Six is sheepish but intense. Gaius: "Feign fear and emotional vulnerability. You're very good, you know." Six looks back at him, grossed out -- "What the fuck are you doing to me? Stop poking it!" -- but it's valid. Where's the Six? Why's he so interested in saying there's no such thing? Gaius: "...But I'm better. Let me help you: 'I'm different.'" He drops his eyes again. Six: "I'm different." Boomer looks up. "I'm more like you," Gaius says, and Six repeats it. They begin to speak together: "I had someone I met here. A man. I loved him and I think he could've loved me, eventually." Sharon stares, trying to believe that there's another model as fracked as she is. Six looks back at Gaius, begging it to be true, and he finally looks at her. Ever notice how much pleasure our Gaius gets from Chip Six's protestations of love? Why do you think that is? She drops her gaze, just now realizing how bad this might get.
