Tigh's quarters. Ellen is rubbing a mopey Tigh's shoulders as he explains that he's trying to figure out how to deal with the supply problem. He says that he might have a "summit sit-down" with all of the Captains, and explain why he declared martial law. Ellen cuddles Tigh's neck and chides him, "Like you have to explain yourself to them?" Tigh says it might calm the situation. Ellen pulls away, and when Tigh asks her what's up, she gets all passive-aggressive about how he hates it when she tells him how to do his job. Eventually, of course, she gives in, and says that Adama would never do something so "touchy-feely." She goes on to say that Tigh should do what he thinks is best, really, no really, and not worry about what Adama would do, especially since Adama may never return to command. Ellen concludes, "Honey, you handle this the way you want. They'll respect that. Eventually." She kisses the back of Tigh's head comfortingly, and like the bendy-doll he is, Tigh picks up the phone and tells Gaeta that he has a message for the fleet. Which is that unless the Galactica begins receiving its supplies as scheduled, he's going to take "stern measures." I'm sure he'll be more specific about as soon as Ellen tells him what measures to take. Tigh hangs up and asks Ellen, "You happy now?"
Starbuck and Helo run through the woods to a building. Seriously, where the hell are they? Starbuck shouts, "I'll flank," which the captions report as, "I'll flake." Which is funnier. Helo replies, "I'll draw fire," and then creates a trompe l'oeil image of a fireball on the side of the building, which scares away their pursuers. Or perhaps he meant the other thing. There's a lot of ducking around corners and firing through windows and jumping through doorways, and this would be more interesting if they were in spaceships. Eventually, Helo climbs up to the top floor of the mysterious utility shed or elaborate tree house or whatever this is, and fires down at stuff we can't see. And then he turns around, and Anders is right behind him, holding his rifle. This battle scene bugged me because it's impossible to know what's going on. Moore's sort of apologetic about how hard it is to do a battle scene like this on a TV schedule, but really, I just want a couple of establishing shots to tell me what they're doing, because as it is I have no clue if Helo and Starbuck are incompetent, or Anders is awfully good, or anything. It bugs me. It seems like Helo and Starbuck probably suck for failing to secure the building. So, Helo and Anders stare at each other over their guns. Then Starbuck says, "Hi," and she's standing behind Anders with her guns ready. Then Anders pulls out a second gun and turns so that he has one gun pointed at each of them. And then Helo takes out Anders while Anders has his back turned. Oh wait, no. Idiot. But then Helo draws another gun, to aim it at one of Anders's sidekicks, who pops into view. Then more sidekicks appear. It gets a little silly. Then everyone stares at each other for a while.
