Roslin plays her last card. "Were you with a blonde woman on Caprica just prior to the attack?" she says hurriedly, desperately. It's a threat, not a question, and the sign of defeat Baltar was just looking for a moment ago. He stands stock still and she stands, rounding the table. "A...what?" he asks, and Six appears at Roslin's back, frightened for him: "She knows." Over a flashback to Gaius and Six making out on Caprica, Mary McDonnell intones terrifyingly, shaking, unable to even touch the ugliness, the enormity: "Were you with a tall blonde woman in the river walk section of Caprica City just prior to the attack?" Six hisses, "She can see right through you. Get out of here now." Gaius laughs. "You'll resort to anything at this stage, won't you? I'm afraid my affairs on Caprica -- and who I chose to consort with -- are none of your business." Roslin looks closer to breaking, at this moment, than we've ever maybe seen. This is worse than the cancer. She's so small it's like we're seeing her from far away. She stands so unbelievably still, eyes so alive...it's like a horror movie. Like she's been getting creepy phone calls all night about "the children" and now it's past midnight and the phone's ringing again. It's hard to look at. "I saved your life," Gaius says, hurt. His feelings are hurt at this accusation. How can she be so mean to him and accuse him of his actions, when he saved her life? How can she do this to him again? "I won't save your political career." He knocks on the hatch and leaves Adama's quarters. We don't look back.
