Season 2.5 Episode Summaries
"Resurrection Ship, Part 2" (#212):
On Galactica, Fisk presents his orders to Tigh, as the Marines board behind them. Fisk explains that Cain was concerned about her Marines being under Tigh's command. Tigh shrugs it off and wants Fisk to make sure that his Marines and Galactica 's Marines know what their responsibilities will be in case the Cylons board., so Colonials don't end up shooting at one another. Fisk voices his agreement.
Adama stands in his quarters looking at the scar from the operation that saved his life after Boomer shot him.
Sharon has brought to Adama's quarters. Adama orders the guards to wait outside. He tells her to sit. Sharon looks uncomfortable. He says he wants to know the Cylons hate humanity so much. Sharon dances a bit and Adama wants her to get to the point. Sharon refers to the speech that Adama gave at Galactica 's decommissioning before the Cylon attack. She says that in what seemed to be unprepared remarks, he had said that humanity was flawed and that it had never asked itself if it deserved to survive. She then poses that may be it does not.

Both battlestars concentrate their fire on one basestar, which is taking heavy damage. The second, more distant basestar scores some hits on Pegasus.
As the lights flicker in Gina's cell on Pegasus from the hits the battlestar is taking, Baltar's Inner Six says that tens of thousands of Cylons are about to die. She says that "God will not forgive this sin." Baltar asks Gina if God will forgive them. Gina says that "God forgives all." His Inner Six tells him not to listen to Gina. She says that she has much more to offer, that she knows God's plan for him and how he can fulfill his destiny. Baltar then tells Gina his Inner Six's little story about missing sports. Gina finds it "beautiful." His Inner Six begs him to stop, but he even throws in the part about having two tickets, one for him and one for her. His Inner Six disappears. Gina takes his hand.
