Adama talks to Cain.
The recon photos are sent to Cain and she is in awe of how close Starbuck got. She gets back on the wireless and agrees to stand out. She then wants a meeting and he will only agree on neutral ground. They agree to meet with no aids on Colonial One. Cain zooms in on the recon video of the unknown Cylon ship and spots Six copies.
On Colonial One, Roslin lectures about the leadership dividing amongst themselves. Cain interrupts and says that the two men committed murder. Roslin says that she can't order executions without a trial. Cain says they are at war. Roslin says that a confrontation will lead to severe casualties. Cain wants the Cylon ship and agrees to cooperate on a mission to take it out. Adama doesn't say anything.
Kara reports to Cain. Cain promotes her to Captain and makes her Pegasus CAG. Taylor was demoted because he let Apollo contact Starbuck. She can't charge Apollo if she's not charging Starbuck, so she revokes his flight status. Cain then proposes to take out the unknown ship and Starbuck agrees.
On Colonial One, Roslin says that they have to remove Cain. Adama doesn't agree. Roslin says that after Cain eliminates Adama and the Galactica, she'll pick through the civilian fleet and get rid of them as well. She says that Adama knows she's right. He gets up and says "the world has gone mad."
On Galactica, Doc Cottle says that Sharon 's baby will be okay and Sharon has a cracked rib. She scoffs at them referring to it as an "attack." She asks about Tyrol and Helo and Adama says that he won't let them be executed. He then apologizes for what happened to her. He asks that she be taken care of and then returned to her cell.

Baltar tells her that abuse will not help with getting any answers. Cain leaves. After the door closes, Gina jumps Baltar and chokes him. He stops resisting and she move away from him. She then asks him to help her die.
In the hangar bay, Laird gives a weak report to Adama about the flight deck status. Adama calls Cally over who says that Laird is a civilian and that rumor is that Pegasus used to have a civilian fleet.
Tigh and Fisk share a drink. Fisk says that they found some civilian ships about a week after the attack. The civilian ships were good ships, so Cain ordered the ships striped for parts including jump drives, which marooned them. Cain also took the "valuable" civilians. The civilians on the Scylla , which was Laird's ship, refused to go, so Cain ordered the families of those who refused to go to be shot. Fisk admits that they killed two families.
On Pegasus, Lee walks in on Starbuck. He makes a snide comment about being demoted and working for one of "his pilots." She says that she had nothing to do with it.

In Gina's cell on Pegasus, Baltar offers her some clothes. He turns around so she can change and he notices the scars on her back. He asks her if she was a sleeper agent. She says that she was a soldier and expected to be killed and then reborn. Instead, she was abused. Baltar apologizes and says that she will be reborn, but Gina makes a comment about the recon photos.
Baltar explains to Cain and Starbuck that the unknown ship is a resurrection ship for rebirth of Cylons. Cain and Starbuck realize that if they destroy the Resurrection Shp, the Cylons may think twice about attacking them.
On Colonial One, Roslin is lying down and not feeling well. Adama tells her that she was right. Pegasus had fifteen civilian ships that were stripped for parts and left behind. She says that as long as Cain lives, Adama's survival is at risk. She then starts coughs. She jokes that she could use a new body, perhaps one of the Cylon bodies from the Resurrection Ship. They share a "moment" and then Adama begins to leave. Roslin says that Cain will have no hesitation about killing him, so he can't let her do so.
In their cell on Pegasus, Tyrol says that when he goes back, he's done with Sharon . Helo points out that he's in love with a woman that isn't a woman and a baby that is maybe "half-machine." He can't let go, but Tyrol can.
In his quarters on Galactica, Adama pauses to think.
In her quarters on Pegasus, Cain stops to think as she sees something in the Galactica Watch Logs.
Lee and Starbuck brief Cain, Adama, Fisk and Tigh on their plan to decoy the Cylons into an attack. Their plan is to lure the Raiders away using some apparently disabled civilian ships, while Galactica and Pegasus take on the basestars.
