Commercials. Ooh, The Brothers Grimm. Per the podcast, the scene with Baltar and Six was added by Moore when they realized that they'd left them out of the episode completely. Heh. I guess whether or not you think that's a good addition depends on how much you like Baltar and Six. But I love them, so clearly it was the right thing to do. Nyah.
When we return, the Prez is gossiping cattily with Elosha. She sneers that Boomer thinks she's in love with Helo. Meier, not unreasonably, asks, "Who cares?" Elosha says, "The Scrolls of Pythia do speak of a lower demon who helped the people in a time of crisis." The Prez says that she told Boomer that, unless they come back from Kobol with a map to Earth, Helo will be spaced for conspiring with a Cylon. Meier looks kind of impressed, and asks if that's true. The Prez hmphs that it doesn't matter if it's true or not. Dude, the Prez would totally space Helo. She loves throwing people out of airlock more than Tigh likes throwing them in the brig. The Prez says that Boomer really must think she's in love, because why else would she have helped Helo and Starbuck? She concludes, "Even if it's software instead of an emotion, it's real to her. She wants her baby to live. She wants [Helo] to live. We use that."
It's time for Helo to visit Boomer's cell. He stares at his imprisoned robot girlfriend and reaches through the bars to squeeze her hand before he finally sighs, "This is not the way that I thought things were going to go down." Hee. Boomer says, "They're human," and then smirks, "The way you are." Helo tries to figure out how to take that.
The Prez, Zarek, Meier, and Elosha look over the satellite photo of Kobol. Hey, is that another military asset she stole? Meier asks if anyone has considered the idea that Boomer's sending them into a trap. The Prez says she knows that Boomer could be, and adds that Apollo warned them that they'll probably run into Cylons on Kobol. Meier snits, "Has Captain Apollo managed to tell us anything we don't already know?" Heh. I like him. The Prez gets her schoolmarm on and says that Apollo is second in command. Meier says, "Okay, then shouldn't he be here at this meeting? Or is he busy mooning after Starbuck in a hallway somewhere?" Only not. Anyway, the Prez says that she's determined to go to Kobol, whatever the risks. She says, "I am committed." Zarek and Meier glance at each other like they're both thinking, "Or you should be."
