Kara comes back up and wipes the blood off, smiling that she's about to actually kill this girl, and CAG Apollo enters with a "'Ten-hut!" Kat scrambles away to a wall, having just punched a superior asshole, and Kara stares at her. Kara -- blood in her teeth -- tells Apollo that they were just having a "little tactical discussion," and he surmises that it might have gotten "lively." He's so many things at this very second, so disappointed and worried, and he cares so much: "Right, I'm pairing you two up." Kat's at attention, and does that funny thing where you look at your enemy like, "Seriously? We have to be lab partners now? Fuckin' seriously?" Because there's a level on which Kat and Kara both know this has to play out between them, no matter how energetic and angry it gets. Apollo's got "a hunch" that a couple of Raiders are going to hit 2-5-9, where we're going to be ending up, and he wants his two "heavy hitters" there to greet them. Starbuck's like, "Dude, you're burning me," but he just tells them they have forty-nine minutes. Kat leaves, and Lee looks at Kara, so sad: "Starbuck." She looks up, feeling awful about any number of things, and looks at him, slumped and hurting. "...Are you okay?" And she snaps to attention, and it is beautiful, because I've never seen somebody cowboy up with just her face before.
