Back on Caprica, it's the kind of scene I haven't had to since Angel, where everyone trades exposition for a while. Boomer starts things off by explaining that the Cylons are researching "breeding programs." Starbuck's gotten a new outfit and is sitting in the Humvee passenger seat while Helo checks out her injuries. Helo chimes in, "They call them 'farms.'" Starbuck asks Boomer, "What were they gonna do, knock me up with some Cylon kid?" Boomer says, yup, pretty much, and adds, "We haven't been very successful so far." Anders joins the party, and explains that Cylons aren't able to reproduce biologically. Starbuck asks why they want to, and Boomer says, "That's one of God's commandments. 'Be fruitful.'" She looks at Helo as she explains that they haven't been able to do it on their own. Boomer hilariously tells Starbuck, "If you agreed to bear children, it'd be voluntary. Maybe even set you up with someone you like!" Starbuck makes a duck face and asks, "Like you two kids?" Boomer says that she and Helo are different. Starbuck asks what that means, and poor Helo is saddled with one of the dopiest lines in a while when he says, "They have this theory...maybe the one thing they were missing was love." Oof, that stings. Moore kinda-sorta explains this by noting that the Cylons believe that God is love, so they figure they have to experience love before God will bless them. The Cylons are getting way too New-Agey for me. Anyway, Helo concludes that he and Boomer were manipulated to fall in love. Starbuck rants that Sue-Shaun wasn't asked if she wanted to fall in love. Boomer looks a little exasperated and says, "They know who you are, Kara. You're special. Leoben told you that. You have a destiny." Well, Leoben did say she had a destiny. He didn't say she was special. And the only way Boomer could know that is if Leoben did get to be "reborn," right? Good for him, I guess. Helo decides this a good time to ask what the second scar on Starbuck's belly is from. Starbuck sniffs that she doesn't know, and doesn't want to after what she's heard. She zips up her jacket while Anders asked how many other women are at the Cylon farms. Boomer says there may be thousands, but adds, "I haven't accessed that data." Starbuck follows Anders a few steps away and proposes that they use the Heavy Raider to go on a search and rescue mission for more farms. Anders reminds her, "That's not why you came to Caprica."
Anders leads Starbuck away from the Humvee, where Helo and Boomer are hugging. Anders moves aside an oil drum and reveals a string quartet. Oh, that's the soundtrack, sorry. Actually, there's a tidy square well hidden underneath. He reaches in, pulls out a waterproof tube, and opens it to pull out the arrow and hand it to Starbuck. Starbuck looks amused by the hidey hole, and Anders says, "Go find Earth." She reminds him that he was asking her for professional advice before. Anders thinks, "That was before I found out that you get seriously injured every few episodes. Now I think your advice isn't worth much." But he just says, "We'll muddle through," because he's polite. Starbuck says that the Cylons will kill him. Anders says that he'll take out all the farms first. I'm skeptical. Starbuck sniffs, "I'm not gonna leave you here." Anders looks down and reminds her that she promised to come back. I thought she just promised to send reinforcements back. Just saying. Starbuck yanks off a dogtag and, as Anders shakes his head, she puts it in his hand. He kisses her hand, which I'm kind of a sucker for even though I think he's a lug. Starbuck says that she will come back, and they nod at each other, and then Starbuck briskly turns away before she starts crying again. Anders grabs her hand and stops her long enough to say, "Be safe." Starbuck flashes a grin that becomes another crying jag, and walks back to Helo and Boomer. Someone says, "Let's go home," and I assume that it was Starbuck but it totally didn't sound like her.
