Later, a Cylon shuttle lands on Galactica, and the negotiation party is escorted toward a conference room. From the other direction come Roslin and Adama, with Gaeta and Tigh. Roslin's weirded out about how they're allowing Cylons onboard, but doesn't make too much of a stink about it because she can't remember the last time she airlocked a motherfucker, and this might involve Gaius Baltar. Which is like infinity points in her private airlocking championship. "They must want something pretty bad, or else they would have started shooting as soon as they jumped in," Adama grits. Roslin wonders why on Earth they would send Baltar with the negotiating party. Anytime anybody says his name in this episode, imagine angry spittle flying out of your computer screen. Twice as much if it's Laura. "He can say whatever he wants," Adama reasons. "The longer he talks, the more time we have to get Lee and his people off the planet."
Boomer, Biers, Cavil, and Gaius are escorted through the corridor. Boomer stares at the hallways, equal parts unimpressed, weirded out, and remembering that time she got shot and died calling Chief's name. Gaius is similarly divided, but he's got a Chip Six to discuss it with and doesn't have to rely on nonverbal communication to get across everything Grace Park just did. (Me: "That's Boomer, remember I told you about her?" Alison: "How do you know?" Me: "The way she walks." Alison: "That's awesome.") Six asks if it's feeling "like old times," and Gaius admits how much he misses Galactica. Aww, that makes me sad. He really makes me sad in this episode. Six points out that "they"/Roslin would airlock him so fast and then celebrate, and he knows that, but he still feels like he's home. Six points out that if he's a Final Fiver, that would just be part of his cover. (Is that confirmation that the Final Five are possibly sleepers in the Colonies? For some reason I thought that wasn't true, like, they just weren't around at all. Or only in Heaven. I like it better, though. Ooh, I hope it's Gaeta, Gaius, Kara, Laura, and Adama! That would be so fucked up! And Lee would feel just awful!) But if he's not a Cylon, Gaius says sadly, then this is his last chance to see his people again.
