Act 4:
Caprica Ellen looks at Tigh. Tigh tells Caprica Six to get her hands off of him. She says "fine" and knocks him down. She then jumps on him and hits him a couple more times. She stops and asks him if he feels it. After a moment, she then continues.

As the guard tells him to leave, Inner Six tells him that "the gain will outweigh the cost." Baltar is knocked down again. Baltar says that he wants to stay down, but Inner Six says that he doesn't and helps him up. He's struck again and the guard asks him to stay down. As Baltar is about to be hit again, Lee runs up. He informs them that the quorum has just struck down the resolution in an emergency session, so Baltar and the others can return home. Baltar is helped up by his women and thanks Lee. Lee says that he didn't do it for him. Baltar says that he did it because his god compelled him to. Baltar then walks in as Lee watches him.

Down in sick bay, Roslin and Adama talk about Lee. Roslin says that Lee doesn't have a clue about what he did and pragmatic reality. Adama says he's just doing what he thinks is right. Roslin says that he probably is doing what is right, but that the right thing is a luxury. She stops herself because she's not supposed to get upset during treatment and brings up the book. Adama tells her that he's about to start a part that he hasn't read yet. He starts reading about the character's emptiness.

In the brig, Tigh tells her to keep hitting him, but Caprica Six says she made a mistake. She says that pain isn't what he needed. She then leans over and kisses him.

In the cult's compartment, Baltar speaks to them all. He says that he's not a priest and has been a selfish man. He says that something in the universe still loves him. He says that they all have a spark inside of them but they have to look.

As Baltar talks, Tyrol stares off into nothing.

(Caption: Demetrius)
As Baltar goes on, Kara is sleeping at her desk. Anders walks in and looks at her.

Baltar says that if they don't love themselves, then how can they love others? Baltar then says that god loves them because they are perfect just as they are. He reaffirms that they are perfect just as they are, which his cult reacts to with emotion and happiness.

That statement also brings a smile to Tory's face.

Lee seems nonplussed by Baltar's speech and as the group cheers Baltar, he starts to put his jacket on.

Standing next to Tory, Inner Six folds her arms and smiles, even as she looks over at Tory.
