Commercials. So, the Cylon hands? Creepy, but why? ["Dude, that's what I said. Killing humans with knives seems kind of intimate for robots." -- Wing Chun] I'm trying to believe that they aren't popping out their guns all the time because they'd need to open hatches and climb ladders and so forth. But it still seems like it'd make more sense if they had one gun-hand and one claw.
Kobol. Cally and Tigh wander through the woods. At this point, I was wondering if they were lost, and the groups were going to continue subdividing and subdividing until every single character had his or her own separate storyline. Cally tiredly calls for a break, and Tyrol leans gloomily against a tree. After a moment, Cally tells Tyrol that it's not his fault that Targ got shot. Over and over. Right in front of him. I'm just saying that that Tyrol could be upset about watching someone die even if he doesn't think it's his fault. Tyrol doesn't respond, and eventually Cally resorts to calling him a "mother-fracker." Which causes them both to start giggling. Cally's actually doing that thing where you're laughing and crying at the same time, which impresses me. Tyrol kisses Cally on the forehead, aw, and then Cally sniffs, "Socinus better appreciate this." Tyrol says that Socinus is probably lying in the sun and, after a moment's thought, calls him an idiot. Heh. On that note, they move on.
Crashdown is standing guard when Baltar stumbles through the bushes toward him, gibbering that he got lost. Crashdown chews Baltar out, and shakes him a little as he snaps, "This is a military operation, do you understand me? What I want to hear from you is, 'Yes, sir!'" Baltar obliges, but then adds, "I'm getting a really bad feeling about this place." He does know they aren't there by choice, right? I don't know what kind of response Baltar expected to get, but Crashdown simply says, "You and me both." Then Tyrol and Cally return. Cally hands over the medkit, and Selix quickly opens it up. Crashdown asks where Targ is, and Tyrol tosses Targ's dogtags over and explains, "Cylons." Selix lightens the mood by telling them that Socinus is going to die. Tyrol blusters, "We've got the medkit; give him a shot. Give him another shot!" Selix says that it's too late, and adds to Tyrol's load of guilt by saying, "It's gonna be slow and painful. We can spare him that. We can spare him that if we give him the morpha from my kit and the one that you brought back." The part that I find most disturbing about this is that Socinus is right there. I mean, he seems unaware of the conversation, but I think it's creepy to have this conversation right over him. Tyrol looks to Crashdown for, I don't know what, really, and Crashdown just says, "He's your man, Chief." Selix prepares the shot, but Tyrol yanks it out of her hands and then leans over Socinus and asks how he's doing. Socinus whispers, "What's goin' on, Chief?" Tyrol says he's listening to the birds, and that he's going to give Socinus something to ease the pain. He pokes the needle in, and Cally and Selix both look away. Crashdown doesn't, to his credit. After giving Socinus the shot, Tyrol says that a Raptor just landed, and they're all going back to the Galactica. Socinus breathes, "I'm going home?" Tyrol says yup. Socinus dies. Cally cries some more. She's going to be so dehydrated.
