Back on the Raptor, Crashdown tells Boomer that he could hear the crew screaming in the background. Happily, I assume. Or maybe he picked up a broadcast from those ever-present riots by mistake. Boomer looks down and suddenly sees the bomb by her chair. She looks...well, kind of embarrassed, honestly. "Me and my suicidal urges," she sighs, before reaching down to turn it off.
Caprica. Boomer injects herself while Helo manfully shoulders the burden of exposition by saying, "Careful with that needle -- we're running low on anti-radiation meds." Wow, that was clunky. They've built a fire and are eating. After some lighthearted banter about how their rations won't last long, Helo asks why Boomer came back for him: "You disobeyed orders. Flew back into this hellhole. I mean, not that I don't appreciate it, but why?" Boomer replies, "I just couldn't leave you behind. Let's leave it at that." It's a lame answer, but it's also a lame question. I guess Helo was hoping for a romantic declaration of some kind, because otherwise, why would you ask that? There's silence for a moment, which is interrupted by a burst of noise from the radio. And Morse code. Or possibly Moore's code. Helo identifies it as a Colonial Fleet signal, but says that he can't decode it. Presumably because it's too fuzzy and not because he's just a goober. He adds, "It means there's someone!" Boomer gleefully bleats, "Someone!" and then pauses slightly, and I think that's all she's going to say and laugh for a while. But actually, what she says is, "Someone in the military is still somewhere live and kicking here in Caprica!" They cackle and hug, and of course the hug goes on a little too long before Boomer pulls back. Helo stares at her for a second, and then looks at the fire and observes, "Now all we have to do is find them."
Flight deck. The crew applauds as Boomer and Crashdown arrive. As soon as they open the hatch of their Raptor, Apollo loudly calls, "Way to go, Boomer!" I think he consulted a monograph on building team spirit that suggested he say that. My lord, he's such a dweeb. Boomer and Crashdown step out, and Apollo immediately tells Boomer, "Let's get you debriefed." What, there's a hazing ritual now? Oh, wait, I get it. Apollo is willing to wait long enough for some hearty fist-pumping and congratulatory shoulder-pats before leading Boomer away. Tyrol sidles up, and Boomer asks him to take a look at her "ejection pyros," if you know what she means. Tyrol starts to ask Cally to check it out, but Boomer quickly asks Tyrol to look at it himself.
