  • 39,650 survivors by the end of the episode. That is down fifteen since the previous episode and includes the loss of Dee. The number of survivors was not reported at the beginning of the episode.
  • Like the boxing of the Threes previously, D'Anna's decision to remain on Earth is a way of removing the character without killing her off. It leaves the possibility of the character returning.

Tyrol, wearing glasses, walks around a city market. Suddenly, there is a flash and Tyrol instinctively puts his hand up in front of his eyes.

Tigh runs through a building as Ellen calls him. He finds Ellen partly buried under debris. He struggles to get her out as more bombs explode. She reassures him that it'll be alright because they'll be reborn again together. He smiles and then the room explodes.

  • Is it possible that Kara is alive the same way that the Final Five were reborn even though they died on Earth 2,000 years ago?
  • Where will the fleet go now?
  • D'Anna assumes that Cavil will continue pursuing the fleet? Why would Cavil continue to do so? Because of the Cylons? Or because of the humans?
