Kobol. The captions read, "Raptor 1 Crash Site." At which point I'm confused, because nobody's actually at the crash site. Then I wonder if in another second, there will be a second caption that says, "Sort of." Instead, the screen is wiped and we cut to Baltar, lying in the ruins of the Opera House like he was last week. Oh, it's a dream. He opens his eyes and sees Vipers and Raptors fly past, and then the camera pans down to reveal Adama marching over. Adama helps Baltar stand up, and we see the rest of the crash survivors being helped by other crewmen. Adama asks, "What do you have there?" Baltar's back is to the camera, but he's clearly holding something as he looks at Adama and says, "Well, it's a child, obviously." Adama asks if he can hold the baby, and Baltar hands it over. The kid remains swaddled in a white blanket so that we can't see it, but Adama peeks at its face and asks, "Is this the shape of things to come?" Baltar says that's his understanding. Adama harrumphs, "Only one thing for it, then," and walks away. The music gets all belly-dancer-ish as Baltar begins calling after Adama. Adama keeps on walking, and Baltar starts to chase after him but just can't catch up. I really like this music, but this sequence could be shorter. Adama walks and walks, and Baltar shouts and chases, and eventually Adama marches right into the river, gets hip-deep, and plops the baby underwater. Baltar finally catches up, just as Adama turns and heads back to shore. Baltar splashes around in the river, looking for the baby. Moore says that there was a lot of resistance to including this scene, because Adama drowns a baby. Which is bizarre, because first of all: dream sequence! A crazy person's dream sequence, in fact. Secondly, it's a nonexistent evil robot hybrid monster baby! Oh yeah, and thirdly, it's fiction! In conclusion, people are weird.
And then Baltar wakes up, jerking up from where his head was cradled in Six's lap. Out of the nightmare, into the hallucination. Baltar tells Six about his dream and asks, "Why would anyone want to drown a baby?" Because sometimes you don't have a grill handy? Six more enigmatically answers, "The answer's all around us." And then we see that the grove they're in is littered with skulls and bones. Not secret-society members; skeletons. Baltar asks what happened, and Six says, "Human sacrifice. Not the fairy tales your scriptures would have you believe." Baltar stammers that he thought Kobol was a paradise where the gods lived in harmony with humans. Well, that doesn't necessarily mean that the humans lived in harmony with each other. Six attributes the problem to "your brutality, your depravity, your barbarism." Oh, that. Baltar moans that the scriptures are just covering up savagery. Should this be so surprising to him? Isn't he the atheist? Six reminds Baltar that all of this has happened before, and tha all of this will happen again. Which has certainly been true of that line, at least. Baltar figures that Adama really will try to kill their baby, which he's only seen in hallucinations, but that's Baltar for you. Six says, "Only if you let him."
