What Diego doesn't know -- what Diego doesn't know could fill a book, but -- in this case, what Diego doesn't know is whether Mother gave Obal permission to kill her. "I'm just a poor dumb terrorist," he points out. But Clarice remembers a simpler and more brutal time, ten years ago, when the STO was the only thing keeping the Church alive. That carved out a place for her in the Worlds, a drop of blood at a time. "We were treated like saviors. Now, of course, it's different. The Church has got a little bit too safe and cozy with its polytheist neighbors, if you ask me. I think it's disgusting." Diego tries to explain that the Church still makes the rules, and she asks him to imagine a world where that wasn't the case. Something about the holy fire in her eyes -- "Wouldn't it be wonderful, Diego? To bring light to the Worlds once and for all?" -- speaks to him, and he realizes that she truly has been touched by God. (Polly Walker is a very good actress; there's no reason this scene should work, but it totally does.) She blesses him with a kiss upon the forehead, and then they make love.
Tomas Vergis, you old so-and-so. Adorable and sinister as ever, with the vest and the whole thing. Cyrus explains to an annoyed Vergis that the Zoebot is no longer special in that special way it used to be when it was a girl. Vergis coins both future Cylon terms "toaster" and "boxing" in a pretty smug, wink-wink way, and tells Cyrus to melt her down entirely. When Cyrus balks, Vergis gets pissy, so Cyrus makes sure he seems totally loyal to the new regime: "This was Daniel's obsession, not mine. I'm glad to be rid of it, Dr. Vergis." I thought, I'm going to miss watching her change back and forth, and then I thought, probably not for very long. Some things are too awesome to get rid of just because you need ratings.
Clarice -- and here we were worried she might not be able to get ahold of hash on Gemenon -- sucks down a whole hookah and remembers the day Zoe came running to tell her about the Matrix and she thought of Apotheosis and everything started to get real weird. (Hi Zoe!) Obal shows up and she's like, "Oh fuck. Maintain, Clarice. Maintain." He's going to take her to Mother, he says, which is code for murdering her, which just shows he has no idea how much power Clarice actually has over people.
