"Kara's the key to our salvation..." Natalie nods, but reminds him they agreed only on the alliance, after Cavil took their sisters and brothers down. "You want an alliance, I see the Hybrid. Leoben claims it can help me find Earth." Leoben agrees that there's no way around it, but Natalie's grossed out: "We've tried to be patient about your model's obsession with this woman." Barolay stands, creeped out by this but infuriated by the next bit: "Playing house with her on New Caprica was one thing, but this puts us all in jeopardy."
Never forget the Plan; never forget that both sides of every war are ignorant and confused. One thing I love about this episode is the way it so clearly -- I would say sympathetically -- illustrates and illuminates the areas of even the 268s' continuing blindness. There are good Cylons, but to be on the right side of a civil war is still to be engaged in war; there are no good Cylons until the gravity of the destruction they've caused is something they can feel. Taking away the Resurrection Ship is a brutal step closer, as we'll see. It's a way to set the bone. But the bone is still fucked as hell: "Playing house" is not a good descriptive phrase, even if all Leoben really accomplished was to do to Kara in miniature what the Cylon did to New Caprica on a slightly larger scale: "play house," turn their dusty Heaven into Hell, tell them it was for their own good.
Natalie's got her eye on the clock: "We have their Raptor and their jump drive. We don't need them." Barolay steps forward, hand to her gun: "Frakkin' toaster!" Kara tells her to stand down, gives Natalie a stinkeye for saying stupid shit, and informs her that there isn't time to figure out the Raptor's jump systems before Cavil comes back.
"And if we do figure it out in time, do we just keep running? How long before we run out of fuel, food, and ammunition? How long before Cavil's forces hunt us down?" ("Man, wouldn't that suck if we were decimated, and thousands of us truly died, never to return, and then we had to go on the run, 33 minutes at a time, with dwindling fuel and food, waiting to be hunted down and massacred? Wouldn't that be a bitch?") "Like it or not, we have to work with the Colonials. That means Kara sees the Hybrid." Starbuck offers the alternative -- that Natalie bend over and kiss her cute ass goodbye -- but Natalie's more interested in taking it one task at a time, as Sixes must.
