Galen pulls his hand out of the water, breaking contact, and Sam sends up a hideous scream; the Hybrids everywhere shriek in kind, shaking in fear and pain. Ellen jerks, and Saul flinches, as Galen puts his hands around her throat, lunging forward. She screams, and pushes weakly at his chest; his hands are larger than her head. She holds onto his wrists as they scream, her mouth gone impossibly wide as the world falls down and Sam screams. Doral pulls a gun; Simon notes the download's interrupted. A firefight breaks out, the music goes insane, and the 145s open fire. Sam only stops screaming when she's dead, neck snapped.
Seeing her dead, Cavil realizes it's over. Resurrection itself is dead and gone. He has no chance at all but to live in a world they'll create around him, in the broken shards of the beauty he tried, and tried again, to create. Dog-faced boys, chasing him through yellow mists, and finally caught: he puts his gun in his mouth like Budd Dwyer and with a "Frak!" pulls the trigger. The Raiders swarm Galactica again, but up in the sky, another awful miracle: a stray rock hits the lucky Raptor, nudging it into position and knocking Racetrack's cold hand onto the button. Skulls' nukes fire, eight white serpents, into the Colony, shoving it toward the singularity, and ending another world.
She stands up, woozy and hurting, and Bill calls to her from the floor, where he's curled himself around Laura. "We've got to get out of here! Starbuck, jump the ship!" She runs to the board, holding on tight, and shouts that she doesn't have the coordinates. "Doesn't matter! Just jump us out of here now! Jump!"
Kara looks across CIC at the destruction all around. Slick says, "Just trust yourself." Hera holds up a galaxy in music. "There must be some kind of way out of here," Kara mumbles. The Maelstrom is a singularity that pulls her in, from both sides of time. The notes, on paper. "I thought that if I assign numbers to the notes..." She plays the song on the board's numeric keys. Kara burns her body on a pyre, far from prying eyes. "If that's me lying there, then what am I?" Only the song. She plays it now, strong and clear. "When I look at you now, I don't see Kara Thrace. I see an angel blazing with the light of God." Kara plays at her father's knee; Kara plays the piano in Joe's Bar. Kara does the math. "An Angel," Leoben says. She presses the final coordinates, and pushes the jump key into its lock, turning it. Jump.
