He realizes that she's a part of the peace movement now. Gina says that she's always "abhorred violence." Gina asks the guard to leave. Baltar asks if they know who she is and she says that they don't. She takes off her glasses, puts them down and says that she missed him. He moves close and puts his hand to her cheek, which causes her to flinch. She is clearly uncomfortable as he tells her that he's hung up on her. As he tries to step closers, she starts backing up and asks him to stop. He tries to kiss her and she bites him. He apologizes and she says she's just not ready. He wants to know why she asked him to come. She says that he saved her and now she will save him. She says that the fleet is crumbling and is souring towards the military. She believes that if he becomes President, he'll be able to turn them against the military and allow the Cylons to 'ride to the rescue'. He says that he wants to be with her "always." She says that he needs to stay where he is because the fleet is turning on itself. He looks at the blood on his fingertips and the scientific data that he had been working on. He then stands up and tells her that he won't be responsible for the destruction of mankind.
