Tigh flashback. Adama says, "Personally, I tend to go with what you know. 'Til something better turns up." All righty. Does that mean anything?
Dualla protests that it'll take Cottle fifteen minutes to get to the Galactica. Tigh figures they'll have to get Cottle aboard after jumping. Gaeta chimes in to remind Tigh about the people stranded on Kobol. Dude, that's not nearly as urgent right now. Okay, yeah, you're just expositioning, fine. Tigh rightly says that the kids on Kobol will have to wait, and blinks twitchily. Dualla readies the fleet to jump.
Apollo is locked in a cell. From her own cell, the Prez notes the blood on Apollo's hands and asks what happened. Apollo numbly announces, "My father's been shot." While the Prez gasps, Apollo stretches his hands out through the bars and quietly asks the guard to remove his cuffs. It's a little weird that the Prez doesn't immediately ask who did it. Yes, we know, but still. The soldier says he wasn't told to uncuff Apollo, so Apollo tries screaming at him. Strangely, that stratagem is ineffective, so Apollo sits down on his bunk and fills the Prez in on Adama's condition and Cottle's absence.
The ships wink out as they jump, and the Galactica follows. Having completed the jump, Tigh asks for a report. Gaeta looks puzzled, and Tigh snaps, "Report!" Gaeta says, "Dradis is empty. No contacts." Oopsie. Tigh asks where the fleet is, and Gaeta looks as blank as the dradis screen. Dualla checks for signals from the other ships, and quickly tells Tigh, "They're gone, sir." Tigh boggles, and thinks, "Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop huffing glue." We pull back to show all of CIC, with the console table still coated in Adama's blood. Ick. And then we pull out further, to an external view of the Galactica We move back and back and back, and see the ship all alone against the stars.
New credits! New (to some of us) music! Hm. Yeah, I preferred the more military sound of the other theme. Ah well. Oh, and now there are even more explanatory title cards: "47,875 survivors in search of a home called Earth." It's good that it isn't narrated, because I'd be unable to resist joining in to shout "...a home called Stinky's Lemonade Stand!" It's a long story. And no montage of clips from the episode. Grump. Spoilerphobes ruin everything.
Commercials. Apparently we can hear exclusive commentary "from Battlestar Galactica" via AOL. Is the ship itself providing commentary? "Does this shot make my rear thrusters look big?"
