In the Agathon quarters, Helo is very quiet and very still, and very tall. Sharon's barely there at all. "Do you have any idea what we've gone through?" asks Helo, speaking slowly. "You, of all people, know... what it's like to lose a child." Adama spreads his hands. "The difference is your child's still alive. And eventually, I hope you become grateful of that." Thank God he didn't know. I was so scared he was in on it. Helo goes to Sharon and she holds up a hand, describes a wall between herself and everybody else; when she looks at Adama her eyes are clear. "I want to see her."
Apollo notifies Anders that his wife has gone down, somewhere in the north valley. "Get your men on the line. They're coming from the north." Anders, still not on military time -- and it's Kara, and it's not like even the Admiral usually dealt with her in military time, historically -- asks about the search party. Apollo's sympathetic, but informs him that there's no manpower available; Anders is getting it coming and going this week! What good is your wife cheating on you if her boyfriend won't help you save her? "Lee, she could be dying out there." Apollo is clear on that. Calls him Sam. "But we are thin on the ground here, and the Cylons are on the march. We can't help her. We have to hold our positions." Anders is of the opinion that Lee has gone crazy. From here, it's the only sane thing he's done since, like, Billy died.
More Heavy Raiders head for the surface; Tigh spots them. Roslin's confused: "I don't get it. They'd have to know we see them." Adama is so giving her the cold shoulder, like, he can't even look at her or talk to her. He's like, "Did you hear something?" Tigh figures out that they're testing the bluff about nuking the planet. "Well, unfortunately we are bluffing," says Roslin, and if he could look at her right now he'd be giving her such an O RLY: "Are we. Mr. Hoshi? Order nuclear ground-strike missiles in launch tubes four through ten." Hoshi calls it in. Roslin gapes.
In the bunker, Mathias is trying to get Anders on military time: "The Major's right. We don't have any troops to spare if we're gonna hold this position." Anders says the position can go frack itself, they can take to the hills and go guerrilla like he's been saying. "Well, that is not the mission," says Little Miss Rules and Regs. "We have our orders." Anders calls him a "wind-up tin soldier," but stupidly reminds Lee that Kara's his wife, taking him off military time with a quickness. "I know who she is! And I have known her and cared about her a hell of a lot longer than you!" Anders explains loudly that Apollo can do whatever the hell he likes, but Anders is outta there.
