Back on Colonial One, Roslin and Adama are chilling out for a bit. Roslin turns to him like you might turn to someone and suggest margaritas, and says, apropos of who knows what, "I'm afraid this can only end one way. You've got to kill her." Even Adama, who was present for the beginning of this scene, wonders what the hell she's talking about. Roslin admits to an interest in the Cain method of "cutting through it." She explains that someone like Cain can't step down from a war (we know!) and that she's going to try again to take power from Adama: "I hate to lay this on you, Bill, but she's dangerous, and the only thing you can do is to hit her before she hits you." It's not quite matter-of-factly that she says this (I bet you can imagine right now the precise note of weariness she gives this speech), but Adama is still blamfrazzled, as I imagine most viewers were too. So sudden! He protests weakly, and she jumps: "...You are a Colonial officer who's taken an oath to protect this Fleet. What do you think she's going to do with the civilian Fleet once she's eliminated you? You know I'm right. You just don't want to face it." Adama almost smiles at this less kind, less gentle Laura: "So the whole world's going mad?"
