Boomer is led through the ship with about a thousand guards. Everybody in the corridors makes all kinds of mean faces, like at the end of Cruel Intentions, and the lights are going crazy. I keep my eyes peeled for Cally, because that would just be weird if she shot another one. Sharon's on a leash at the end of a pole, and she's handcuffed, and it's demeaning. In CIC, everybody stares at her all mean. Nobody moves. Nobody breathes. "We need to work quickly. We're on borrowed time," Sharon says. Adama looks at Tigh and Gaius, and Tigh shakes his head. Since his opinion is the opposite of a good idea, usually, Adama immediately orders her released. Like she's a worthwhile person with a mind and soul and feelings, Sharon turns to Dualla. "Dee, do you still carry your father's pocket knife?" Dee immediately looks at Adama, because that's weird in context, but also sad in how much it implies about their past personal relationship. Adama orders her to hand over the knife, and Dualla makes the perfect, perfect face as she does so -- this inscrutable mix of sad, weirded-out, pissed, and a heaping helping of OMG. Boomer asks Gaeta for a fiber-optic com link, and does not specify that it should be as small in diameter as possible. She explains she also needs all-frequency broadcast capability and a direct link to the ship's mainframe. Again, Adama assents. Gaeta gives the exact right response as well, handing her the link cable with a "Right here, Sharon." She's thankful for that. So am I. It might be the loveliest moment in the episode, for me. His grace here -- it says so much about the kind of man he really is.
