Roslin explains to us about the New Caprica Police and how despicable she finds it -- "humans doing the dirty work of the Cylons" -- over images of them suiting up. Some of them, she worries, are people -- like Jammer -- you might least expect. "Hundreds have been rounded up, held, questioned, tortured... others have simply vanished." But, we're told, a mysterious contact "within Baltar's administration" has been flipping over the food bowl of a dog named Jake (shout-out!) and leaving clearly labeled information in a secret place. Since "Baltar's administration" amounts to: Felix Gaeta, I don't know why the episode wants it to be a secret. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it does, actually, so it's confusing. "Thank the Gods for those that fight. They have everything to lose, and little hope of something to gain." Resistance, anything but submission: Roslin knows instinctively how you stay free.
Under this latest voice-over, Chief grabs the info from the secret place: clearly labeled security plans for the NCP graduation ceremony. He heads home, where Cally -- looking very beautiful -- lies in bed with their baby. A bright wooden mobile hangs down over his crib. "Sometimes," she says, looking down at Baby Nick in her arms, "I hate everything about this place, but sometimes it's magic." She kisses Chief and he nuzzles her shoulder. After a moment of peace he sighs: "Gotta go. Couple of hours." She is frightened and voices her fear that one day, he won't come back. Just vanish, and she'll never see him again, and Baby Nick will never know his father. She's spent this entire series afraid that Chief will disappear. I give her credit for that. He promises he'll come back, and leaves, and she lies with the baby, holding his tiny hand in hers.
Under a pallet, under a carpet, into a trapdoor and down a ladder, into a hidden dark bunker, Tigh joins Anders and the Chief. They drink nasty hooch and welcome Tigh back. Over his head, Chief and Anders OMG about the patch over Tigh's eye. "I know you're wondering: the eye's gone." Right out onto the floor. "They picked it up and showed it to me. Looked like a hardboiled egg." You laugh when you can. It's not very funny. He brings up the explosion that afternoon: "Hope that was you two." Anders admits it was, and that they took out a Heavy Raider. (Awesome! I totally guessed that's what that was! I guess there is a spaceship learning curve after all. I'm sure I'll screw up something momentarily, though.) Tigh is pleased with the graduation schematics, and Chief says they've been getting these excellent little presents for weeks now. (So what was Gaeta doing the months before that?) Merely mentioning the NCP makes Anders wanna puke, because in every scene somebody's gotta almost puke about the NCP because it's so very bad. Chief worries about taking out Baltar without a lot of collateral damage, and Tigh gets very crusty and loud and crazy. "No boundaries for them, no boundaries for us!" Gross.
