Sickbay. Cottle puffs on a cigarette and tells Tigh that Adama will live. Tigh asks when Adama will wake up, and Cottle says, "Knowing him, when he damn well wants to, probably." Tigh looks down at Adama and quietly says, "I really fracked things up for you, Bill." Then he exits, before Adama can wake up and ask, "What else is new?"
Ready Room. The reporters listen as Tigh repeats his charges that the Prez suborned mutiny, and that she'll stay in the brig until Adama decides otherwise. The reporters murmur in a disapproving way. Tigh goes on to say, "As it appears obvious that the government cannot function under the current circumstances, I have decided to dissolve the Quorum of Twelve." What was the government doing that it can't do now? Because it doesn't seem to really do much, so why can't Tigh can go on ignoring them the same way he has been? Tigh concludes, "As of this moment, I have declared martial law." The murmuring breaks into full-fledged clamoring. Okay, it sounds bad, but remember that Baltar's on his way back to the Galactica, so maybe this is for the best. Tigh folds up the blank sheet of octagonal paper he was pretending to read from, and then marches out of the room in dramatic slo-mo. Once outside, he hands the paper to a soldier and says, "Get those people the hell off my ship." Once he's a little further away, he has a gulp from his flask.
Next time: the fleet starts to rebel in support of the Prez.
Production card: a landshark eats Moore, who wails, "Make it stop!" I think we saw that one before, but it's one that I missed recapping, so yay.
