Adama is back in command.

Down in the engine room, Tyrol notices a large crack.

Roslin climbs down the stairs and she and Adama have a pleasant reunion.

Baltar listens to Gaeta talk in the brig. Gaeta talks about being interested in architecture ("restaurants shaped like food" and "everything had to have a stairway"), then medicine, then engineering, then photography and finally science. Baltar tries to speak, but Gaeta doesn't want him to start up and certainly don't talk about religion. Gaeta says that he's "fine" with how things have worked out. He pauses to scratch his stump. He then says that he just hopes people know who he is and Baltar says that he knows who Gaeta is.

Zarek and Gaeta sit in the launch tube before Adama's firing squad. Gaeta is resolute. Zarek doesn't seem so much, but a shared look between them seems to steel Zarek. Adama orders the firing squad to "Ready." Baltar can be seen watching. Adama says, "Aim" as Lee is also seen. Gaeta then says that it [the itch] stopped. Adama says, "Fire" and the squad fires.

Fade to black.
