The Raptor winks out of space, and then winks back in and begins to plummet toward Kobol. The bottom of the ship glows with heat as it descends. Pretty!
The pilot reports that no Cylons seem to be lurking about. As his cheek ripples in the G-forces, Adama shouts, "Having good luck already." Billy squints and his lips flop about as he strains himself making a thumbs-up gesture.
The Raptor falls below the clouds and then fires up its thrusters and zooms over the planet's surface.
Oh, it's raining again. I think Helo might be a rain god. Team Prez has set up a campsite, and the Prez sits alone under a shelter and looks over her waterlogged book. Helo is unwrapping a candy bar as he cuddles with Boomer.
Apollo and Starbuck sit under a tree to gossip. Apollo says that seeing Helo with Boomer gives him the creeps. Starbuck says that Helo knows what Boomer is, and loves her anyway. Apollo keeps on glaring at the lovebirds and asks, "How can one of us get that roped in by one of them?" He suggests that they should keep an eye on Helo. Yes! You also shouldn't have brought him along! Starbuck insists that Helo is her friend, and one of the good guys. Apollo sneers, "Sharon was a friend of yours too." You didn't seem to pick up on her weirdness either, bonehead.
Helo says that he feels like he's back on Caprica. If they do ever make it to Earth, I bet he settles in Seattle. Boomer says she prefers it where they are, and says that it feels like home to be back with the Galactica crew. Helo points out, "But you were never in the fleet. That was the other Sharon." Boomer says that she remembers training and serving on the Galactica as if she did it. She notes that this is weird, which is understating things a tad, and Helo coos, "That's okay. I like weird." If you're Helo, I think you'd pretty much have to, unless you want to turn into Baltar.
Meier and Zarek stare at the Prez and talk about how upset she is about Elosha's death. Unlike the rest of the world, which found it kind of a relief. Meier quickly moves back to his favorite topic: killing Apollo. He's kind of fixated, really. Zarek says that it may take a while to reach the tomb. Meier gets huffy that Zarek's not enthusiastic enough about plotting murder. Meier, maybe you should take a page from some of the other characters and develop a hobby of some kind? Zarek, for instance, has taken up coining aphorisms: "Getting blood on your hands is a lot harder than washing it off." Meier proposes that they should get Boomer to kill Apollo for them, and then kill her. Why don't you just kill Apollo and claim that Boomer did it? Because, really, getting someone else to commit murder for you isn't actually a huge step up morally from doing it yourself. Your solution is just making things more complicated. I think Zarek's whole problem is that he can't find good help. Zarek doesn't veto the idea, but repeats that nothing can happen until they find the tomb.
