Team Prez remains motionless, listening to the clanging. Maybe the Cylons should get some rubber-soled shoes. Venner suggests that everyone should maybe hide right about now. They all duck behind a large hatchway.
Apollo takes position next to Jammer and tries to reassure him. Jammer shakily takes aim down the corridor and notes, "I'm not really cut out for this, sir." Apollo says that he isn't either, which might not be that reassuring for poor Jammer. Apollo adds, "Sometimes you gotta roll a hard six." Jammer asks what that means, and Apollo admits that he doesn't know: "It's something my dad says." Heh, although that joke was funnier when it was about "five by five." Apollo says that he'll tell Jammer when to shoot, and then jumps up to take position behind a bulkhead. Entertainingly, he seems to decide that this is a good time to try to artfully muss his hair. The clangs stop for a moment.
Clang, and we're looking at a closed hatch. Okay.
Clang, and we're looking at the corridor.
Clang, and Team Prez stares around like, "Is something going to happen soon?"
Apollo starts muttering, "Head shot, reload, head shot." Why does he have to reload before firing again? That seems like a design flaw. I hope there's an episode where Apollo gets to be a spy of some kind. Muttering, "Lie, sneak, lie," to himself all the time.
The clangs are rapid now, and the camera zooms up the corridor and reaches the hatch just as two Cylons pour through it. As soon as they're through, the lead Cylon switches its right hand to a gun. Which sort of suggests that, yeah, they need hands to open doors and stuff, but I still don't get why they can't leave the other hand as a gun. Or are they all right-handed? Anyway, with their guns ready, they run down the hall.
Apollo announces that the Cylons are coming, and tells everyone to get down.
Billy is holding his gun, and Dualla hisses, "You wanna shoot that, you have to take the safety off." Billy looks at the side of the gun. The Cylons race past the open doorway to the corridor Team Prez is hiding in. The Prez gasps and ducks back through another hatch. Billy jumps, and accidentally fires the gun. Whoops. One Cylon, having already passed them, stops at the sound. We get a second to register that there's blood smeared over its shoulder and one arm -- nice touch. Then it returns to the intersection and looks down the corridor, where Billy is standing dopily. The second Cylon appears as well, and they both open fire. The Prez screams and rushes forward to shove Billy down to the floor.
