Sam plays the kind of lonely solo Pyramid you only really enjoy when your ex-wife is going loony once again. Seelix stands behind him in the doorway for awhile before chuckling to herself, and he nods. "Yeah, I used to be pretty good at this game... Making the shot. Winning the big game. Can't believe that used to matter to me." Seelix muses about how far away and long ago the Colonies seem now, but really she's talking about how hard she tried to find something to replace it: Sam, drinking, moving from knuckledragger to New Caprica terrorist to Viper nugget to pilot, and all the different hairstyles along the way. She's always been pretty; today she is beautiful. She finally comes around in front, getting weird and girlfriend-crazy.
"I really thought there was something between us, you know? And when that didn't happen, I wondered: was it me?" Sam swears it wasn't, calls her Diana, but he doesn't recognize this look in her eye like we do. "Now I'm thinking, no. Maybe it was something else. Some Cylon thing. Your programming." He shakes his head sadly, because OMG they are just not going to let this go, how he's a robot. And again: this needed to happen. It's kind of unbelievable that Tigh would stay XO, and Sam's presumably still a pilot, and Tory's off with the Basestar, possibly Chief too when he's not hanging out with Gaius. But Sam's got no protection at all. He stares sadly at her as the hostility comes up, and up. "Gods, I know it's been months, but I just can't let it go..." Connor's boys grab him, and bag his head. She stares down, and away; she enjoys it. One of the guys goes to town on him, on the floor, kicking and punching until he's almost unconscious. One of the others tells him to save it; they've been promised more vengeance than this.
Adama's giving Private Jaffe some files when the alarms go off: a fake fire warning on Deck C, near the main antenna array. Felix orders a diagnostic there too, and after a fake moment to think, calls out: "Admiral, if the wireless array goes down, we could lose communications across the Fleet. Given our current situation, I'm thinking this fire might not be an accident." Smart, very smart. Tigh jumps right in line: "Zarek's true believers would have a field day if we went dark." Adama gaetas the Marine fire unit along with the damage control party, and evacuates C Deck. Just like Gaeta wanted.
