Baltar's Dream:
On Colonial One, Admiral Adama and Colonel Tigh say that Baltar had no choice. Roslin agrees with him. Baltar says that the past is the past and time to start anew. Baltar's Inner Six walks and says that they are being too lenient. Baltar doesn't think that they can hear her, but then Adama agrees with her about not making her mad. Baltar starts to lose reality.

Tigh starts ranting about Gaeta being a traitor. Adama interrupts. Tigh and Adama have a terse conversation in which Tigh takes a shot at Helo acting as XO.

The Circle judge the guilt of another collaborator. He's on another ship, so he'll be "taken care of" by their people there. They have fifty-seven more to go.

He wants to know why he's just remembering. She says that there is some controversy about him being on the basestar because he's human. She says that three models are in favor and three are against. The Sixes are undecided.

Lee reports to Admiral Adama that thirteen people (2 on Galactica including Jammer) have gone missing since leaving New Caprica. He then says that he has to go get some exercise.

He also tells her that he fed the resistance information. People have started to clear out of the room during the conversation. When Kara doesn't respond positively, Gaeta gets up and leaves. Seelix is then seen to have been sitting at the next table, watching

He calls after her that she needs him and he needs her.

The Circle explains to Kara that they are a jury. Kara doesn't think it's legal, but they hand over some document from the Office of the President. She says she's in. They show her the evidence about Gaeta . She gives her vote as guilty. It's down to Tyrol . Just then, Anders interrupts and wants to talk to Kara.

Kara wants him to beg about his helping the resistance. Tyrol hears her and steps in. He asks Gaeta and Gaeta says that there was a yellow dog bowl. Tyrol confirms it. He says that Gaeta was their contact. Gaeta says that he did what he could and leaves. The Circle is stunned.
