Later, Starbuck watches Apollo pretending to be dead. She asks if he's okay, and the best he can muster is that he broke his word to her. Starbuck shushes him, and we see that Dualla's standing outside the officers' quarters listening in. "A close call like that," Starbuck tells him, "that would mess with anybody's head. All right? It turns out I didn't need you anyway. So...let's just be glad that we both came back alive, all right?" He tells her that he didn't want to, and she looks sad and sick, and we see the fickle Petty Officer Anastasia Dualla outside, looking horrified and distraught and just a tiny bit in love. I'll give Apollo a pass on the drama, because he did just actually die for a minute there, but the angsting about it might give me indigestion some episode soon.
Helo and Chief approach Boomer's cell. Chief stands back, and Helo steps up to the glass. Boomer rushes to meet him. They stare and smile, and Boomer goes nuts, laughing and weeping, so excited and relieved and exhausted: "I didn't think I'd ever see you again!" He smiles warmly and agrees, and they stare at each other, Chief in the background, totally ignored. "So," Boomer asks, "where do we go from here?" Chief, a class act all the way, gives a tiny sad smile and exits quietly. Wow.
