Tigh orders a jump down the line in the direction indicated by the Nebula, and Dee starts spinning the FTL, and Kara complains to Helo about how nobody believes her, and Helo tells her the best way to take care of that is to find the star system, and she whines about how it's a waste of time, but he doesn't understand she means that literally, that that's not how it's going to happen, so he explains how she shouldn't lose hope because this stuff sometimes takes months, and just when you're positive this scene is going nowhere, the Admiral arrives and tells Helo to take a hike.
"It doesn't work like that. It's a feeling. An intuition. I didn't use nav fixes to get there and back. When we were at that Nebula, it was so clear to me. But every jump we take farther away, the clarity fades. If we keep jumping like this, I won't be able to find our way back." Literally, that's what she says, and that's what happens. I think I would not be so offended by all of this if the words themselves weren't so darned unlikely. Nobody ever talked like this in the history of the universe. It's a brilliantly structured episode and it's really fun to watch, it's an A episode, but damn if there's not some unnecessary George Lucas stink around the edges.
"The President's adamant." (See? The resident president's adamant and assonant and carries a laminate. If you're having trouble writing convincing human dialogue, find some humans and ask them. This is why people hate fucking science fiction and can't explain why, this stuff right here, because it hits your ear wonky and makes no emotional sense and takes you out of the story. The point is to get us past the spaceships and alien robots, not to point them out all the time. You know?) "We're gonna continue on the course laid out by the Eye of Jupiter."
Dualla counts it down, and they jump. And Kara's head goes crazy, and she shakes. "We're going the wrong way. If we keep jumping like this, I'm gonna lose the feeling completely, never be able to take us back." The Admiral asks Kara if she's seriously suggesting that he approach the President of the Twelve Colonies and tell her to forget Pythia and the Eye, because Kara has a "feeling." Um, yes. That is what you are supposed to do, and it's obviously what you're going to end up doing, so...
Adama's horrified and sad and tired from all the stuff going on with her: "I can't. I just left your ship. There's not a scratch on it. It's brand new. How do you explain that, Kara?" With tears on her face, she offers no response, and he looks away. He can't even look. It seethes in him. "Look at me. Look at me!" He does, and she leans close, searching his beautiful face. "I swear to Gods, it's me. Kara." But the question he can't ask, because it's too close to turning around, on the path from the underworld, is how she can possibly know that. How can you know when you know?
