It's the 134th day of the Occupation, Laura writes on Marsday. Which is fitting, she says, because perpetual war is the only possibility. She lists her prayers: "I refuse to believe Adama has abandoned us," she says. Though the insurgents' attacks sometimes seem futile, they are still critical for morale and for the existence of hope on New Caprica. That reminder of the possibility of resistance. The next step is to hit a "high-profile target," obviously a human target, but she's thinking around and not about that: they can't really kill the Cylons, because they don't die. They resurrect themselves to "walk among us," she says, calling this "horrifying." And the Occupation authority continues, in complete control.
The voice-over goes on and on forever but doesn't really tell you anything you didn't know. It's so nice to hear her voice. Three (the Xena one) walks towards Colonial One as Roslin utters Baltar's name with intense disgust: his leadership is in name only. Three joins a parliament of Cylons in Gaius's office on Colonial One: Cavils, Dorals, Threes, Sixes and Eights. Cavil lectures them: "Let's review why we're here, shall we?" Everybody's got a different shade of meaning here, though. Cavil sees it humorously: they're on New Caprica to bring the word of God to the people, to save the humans from damnation by bringing them the love of God. DEMAND LOVE speaks up: Caprica Six -- remember, Gaius's baby-snapping lover back in the Colonies -- fairly spits at this. "We're here because a majority of the Cylon felt that the slaughter of mankind had been a mistake." Boomer -- remember, Chief's old Brokeback lover that was killed by his new one -- agrees: "We're here to find a new way to live in peace, as God wants us to live." Cavil agrees that it's been a fun ride, but he -- and for our benefit, since the Cylons have never really made any sense at all, which is what's so awesome about religious imperialism -- wants to "clarify our objectives." Please. Three and Doral, who seem to be leaders a lot of the time, look at each other.
