Helo eases on down the road. He sees a flock of pigeons flying out of a building, disturbed by something.
Helo enters the abandoned building, metallic clanks audible in the distance. He sneaks around piles of rubble with his gun drawn for a while. Eventually, he comes upon a hole broken through the floor, and through it he sees a Cylon robot dragging along a prisoner with a bag over her head.
Helo hurries to the rescue, carrying his bag of goodies slung over his shoulder. I think maybe Helo should have taken five minutes to turn the bag into more of a backpack. He looks like a complete idiot rushing to the rescue with his hands full. And soon he looks like an even bigger idiot, pointing his gun at nothing while a Cylon sneaks up behind him. I guess they can stop clanking when they want to. Maybe this one's in stealth mode. Helo turns around at the last minute, and the Cylon clubs the gun out of his hand and knocks him down. Helo scrambles back away from the curiously slow Cylon, trying to pick up his gun. The Cylon turns its hand into a gun in that way they do. Helo gets to the gun and fires at the Cylon's head. The Cylon collapses with a metallic shriek. Aw. One of its arms flops down atop Helo, who scrambles out from under it. It doesn't look quite right, but it's still a pretty good FX job. Helo pulls the bag off the prisoner's head to reveal a very bloody Boomer. I'm not sure what the point of the bag was. Oh, I guess Boomer can plausibly say that she doesn't know where the Cylons took her, or anything. Okay. Boomer sobs as Helo kisses her comfortingly a few times. He helps her to get up, and they hug as Helo chuckles, "Now we're even." Boomer looks off into the distance and harshly says, "I think we should go." Helo retrieves his knapsack of goodies and they stumble off. As Helo reassures Boomer that she'll be okay, they walk past another big hole in the ceiling. On the upper floor, Larry and Six stand in silhouette. Some posters were bothered by Helo's lack of peripheral vision here. I don't think it's an issue; the camera is angled up so that we see them. Peripheral vision doesn't usually get triggered by something that's a fifty yards away and twenty feet above you, y'know?
