Commercials. Remember last week when I was kind of excited about The Brothers Grimm? Never mind. I really like Gilliam, even Baron Munchausen, but it's a mess.
As they walk across the hilltop, Meier sidles up to Boomer and asks whether she's thought about their conversation. Boomer has. She tells him, "When we get to the entrance, they'll be distracted. I'll take the father, and you take the son." The camera pulls back to show the edge of a carved rock, and Boomer calls the others to come see.
Everyone troops up to a cave entrance blocked by a stone door. Boomer looks around at the Prez, who gives her a small smirk of gratitude. Then the Prez asks if Starbuck has the Arrow handy. As Starbuck starts to open her plastic quiver, Boomer pulls a gun out of her jumpsuit and whirls around to aim at Adama. Apollo starts to raise his rifle, and Meier points his own gun at Apollo's forehead. Oh, don't shoot him there, that's his least vulnerable point! And then Boomer turns, and pauses just long enough for Meier to think, "Whoopsie." Boomer shoots Meier in the gut. Zarek's other flunky draws and starts to aim, presumably at Apollo, but Apollo pegs him in the head and then whirls back to aim at Boomer. Adama raises his arms out as Boomer faces him again. Still aiming at him, she very rapidly says, "I'm Sharon, but I'm a different Sharon. I know who I am. I don't have hidden protocols or programs lying in wait to be activated. I make my own choices, I make my own decisions, and I need you to know this is my choice." She hands her gun to Adama. Adama calmly takes it, and shoots her. No, but that would have been awesome, wouldn't it? Instead, everyone's just quiet for a minute, and Adama hands Boomer's gun to Tyrol. Boomer explains that Meier gave her the gun. Meier, flails about weakly on the ground, and nobody seems to mind much. Zarek goes over to him, finally, and Meier gasps, "Just wanted to see you get your due." Zarek huffs, "You never did listen to me." Meier dies, and Zarek sniffles. Everyone else stands around awkwardly.
Starbuck holds the Arrow of Apollo over the door to the cave and grumbles about getting the door open. The Prez recites, "And the Arrow of Apollo will open the Tomb of Athena." Starbuck doesn't seem to find that particularly helpful. Adama suggests a more practical approach, and asks Helo to join in as he, Billy, and Apollo try to shove the rock door open. The door moves a little, and Adama lets the younger kids take over. The door swings inward, and Apollo turns back and tells Starbuck, "After you." Starbuck smugly leads the procession, not thinking that maybe there's a trap right inside the door. Adama nods for the Prez to go in, and tells Helo to wait outside. Then Adama calls Tyrol forward and quietly says, "Guard everybody." Hee. So Tyrol is left to watch Helo, Boomer, and Zarek. Helo looks a little hurt. Zarek and Boomer are just like, "Yeah, I figured."
