Lay Down Your Burdens, Pt. 2

Mar 10, 2006 Season 2 Episode 20

As the sun rises on Caprica, Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) and Anders (Michael Trucco) discover that the Cylons have vanished. Brother Cavil declares it a miracle. But when they return to Galactica, the real reason for their survival become clear. Brother Cavil is a Cylon – his double counseled Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) – and he’s here to deliver a message: The Heroes of the Cylon – Number Six (Tricia Helfer) and Sharon (Grace Park) – have persuaded the leadership that trying to destroy the humans was an error. From now on they will live apart, in peace. At the same time, voting continues in the presidential election. Laura (Mary McDonnell) approaches Baltar (James Callis) and proposes that, whoever wins, they agree that colonization of the newly discovered planet will wait for further study. When Baltar spurns her offer, she confronts him about Number Six and, when he remains unmoved, she instructs her aide to take steps to steal the election. The plot, however, is discovered and Laura and Adama must choose between denying the will of the people and letting a man they suspect to be a Cylon collaborator take power. For Laura, the question is difficult but the answer is never in doubt. As President Baltar is sworn in, his lover, Gina, enacts a final vengeance against the fleet. Despite that, colonization of the new world goes ahead over Adama’s objections, who remains uneasy, anticipating the return of the Cylons. As the colonists set to work, Adama remains aboard Galactica with a few loyal crew, but what good is an old warhorse in time of peace? Perhaps the time has come – again – to turn out the lights...

Lay Down Your Burdens, Pt. 1

Mar 03, 2006 Season 2 Episode 19

Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) has devised a daring plan to save the humans trapped on Caprica by using the Sharon's (Grace Park) knowledge of Cylon navigational technology to jump a rescue mission past the Cylon defenses. On the first jump, however, one ship goes missing. The stray ship ends up floating above a blue planet that shows every sign of being able to support life. When this news reaches Galactica, it has a profound effect on the presidential race, which Baltar (James Callis) is losing badly. In a debate with President Roslin (Mary McDonnell), he goes on the offensive, using the possibility of a new home planet other than earth to attack her as a fear-monger who relies too much on religious scriptures and doesn't care about people's need to have solid land under their feet. Meanwhile, on the flight deck, Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) is wracked with regret after he reflexively and brutally attacks Cally (Nicki Clyne) when she wakes him from a recurrent nightmare. He consults Brother Cavil (Dean Stockwell), who divines the problem: Tyrol dreams of killing himself because fears he is a Cylon. On Caprica, the rescue mission has found the last survivors. But even as Starbuck and Anders (Michael Trucco) embrace in a passionate reunion, the Cylons are closing in.

Final Cut

Sep 09, 2005 Season 2 Episode 8

Now that the fleet is reunited, old conflicts reignite. Criticism of the military reaches a fever pitch in the aftermath of the massacre on the Gideon. During the period of martial law, a team of Galactica’s marines, led by pilot Lt. Palladino, had opened fire on civilian protestors aboard the civilian freighter. Col. Tigh (Michael Hogan), commanding officer during the incident which left four civilians dead and a dozen others wounded, receives a death threat. Shortly afterward, he very nearly falls victim to an act of sabotage. It is decided that steps must be taken to ratchet down the rhetoric, on both sides of the dispute. Intent on improving relations between the civilian fleet and the military, President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) and Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) offer Fleet News Service reporter D'Anna Biers (Lucy Lawless) unlimited access to the Galactica officers and crew. With her cameraman in tow, D'Anna interviews a series of stressed-out pilots, crew hands and officers. Gaius Baltar (James Callis), urged on by Number Six (Tricia Helfer), hopes to gain D'Anna's support in his political ambitions. D'Anna stumbles onto one of the Galactica’s most explosive secrets, however, when she encounters the Cylon prisoner Sharon (Grace Park), whose unborn child is saved by the quick actions of Dr. Cottle (Donnelly Rhodes) following a near miscarriage. And when Louanne "Kat" Katraine (Luciana Carro), wired on stimulants, crash-lands her Viper, D'Anna must decide whether she'll fashion her report as a hatchet job or as a more nuanced portrait of life aboard the Galactica. The arrival of two Cylon attack ships clarifies D'Anna’s thinking - as does a potentially deadly ambush that puts Tigh and his wife in the gunsights of a crazed, would-be assassin.

The Farm

Aug 12, 2005 Season 2 Episode 5

Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) returns to a hero's welcome and an unenviable task: In order to maintain control of the fleet, he must track down his son, Lee, and President Roslin, who have escaped (with Tom Zarek’s (Richard Hatch) help) into hiding somewhere in the fleet. Adama orders all ships in the fleet searched. Meanwhile, Lee (Jamie Bamber) and Roslin (Mary McDonnell) prepare to send a message to the rest of the fleet seeking popular support. When the time comes, however, Lee can't bring himself to publicly condemn his father. With no other choice, Roslin plays "the religious card" to save the human race. She declares herself to be the voice of the prophet Pythia. Her announcement sends shockwaves throughout the fleet's population. Finally, unable to hide any longer, her ship makes the jump back to Kobol, where she plans to seek the road to Earth. To the surprise of many on the Galactica, and to Roslin herself, nearly one-third of the fleet follows her to Kobol. Far away, on Cylon-occupied Caprica, Kara (Katee Sackhoff) goes on recon with the resistance fighters and is wounded in a firefight. She finds herself being nursed back to health by Simon, an attentive doctor who tells that she can better serve the human race by having babies than by fighting Cylons. When Kara awakens with a new scar, though, she begins to suspect that neither Simon nor the hospital are what they seem. Sneaking out of her locked room, she discovers that Simon is a Cylon, and she kills him. Making a bid for freedom, she stumbles upon a chilling sight: a room full of women, including resistance fighter Sue-Shaun (Tamara Lashley), wired up by the Cylons to serve as baby machines.

Aug 05, 2005 Season 2 Episode 4

Col. Tigh's (Michael Hogan) imposition of martial law threatens to split the crew and the fleet. He's thrown Chief Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) into the brig on suspicion of being a Cylon and his dismissal of the Quorum has provoked the other ships to refuse to send fuel and other supplies to the Galactica. His judgment blurred by drink and the goading of his ambitious wife, Ellen (Kate Vernon), Tigh sends armed troops to one of the ships to take supplies by force, a move that ends in disaster when civilians are killed. Amid this chaos, Lee (Jamie Bamber) schemes to free President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) to establish a democratic opposition. He makes a break for freedom with Roslin, while Roslin's close aide Billy (Paul Campbell) chooses to stay behind. Tigh threatens to shoot down the Raptor carrying Roslin away from the Galactica, but the can't bring himself to kill his friend’s only surviving son, and Lee and Roslin escape into the fleet at large. Meanwhile, Baltar uses Sharon's (Grace Park) love for Tyrol to intimidate her into revealing how many Cylons are lurking in the fleet. On Cylon-occupied Caprica, Kara (Katee Sackhoff) and Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) find themselves in a standoff against other humans. Cooler heads prevail, and the pilots meet their new allies: a group of 53 survivors, led by Anders (Michael Trucco) and Sue-Shaun (Tamara Lashley), members of a professional pyramid team that survived the nuclear holocaust because they were training in the mountains. Kara enlists their help in her mission to get off Caprica.
