Episode 412 Spoilers: A Disquiet Follows My Soul; January 23, 2009
3/21/09: The extended (DVD) cut of the episode will run about 10 minutes longer. From Chicago Tribune [Though we didn't find the episode a complete disappointment, it was lacking a pace that was present in the episodes before it and after it. Hopefully, the extended cut will enhance the episode.]

1/23/09: Episode Recap Now Available
1/23/09: Adama, Lee and Zarek are on Colonial One holding a press conference [presumably concerning the alliance with the Cylons.]. Zarek is asked if he supports "such a move." After a long pause, Zarek answers "no comment." They are then asked about President Roslin. Lee quickly gets to the podium before Zarek. He says that Roslin is resting onboard Galactica. He prompts for the last question, which concerns the identity of the fifth Cylon. He says that it is believed that the fifth is dead. He is pressed and let it slip that the fifth is a "she." Lee ends the press conference and he, Adama and Zarek go into the office where the number of survivors can be seen to be 39,644. Zarek wants to know what is going on. Adama tells him to forget about it. Zarek says that an alliance with any Cylons is out of the question. Lee says that it's not Zarek's "call." Zarek then wonders if it's Lee's and if he's President again. Adama says that Roslin is still the President and will "make the final call." Zarek then points out that Roslin's been out of sight on Galactica since her prophecies about Earth were wrong. After a moment, Adama says, "We're done here." Lee leaves, but as Adama starts to follow, Zarek drops his threat about there being consequences to any alliance with the Cylons. Adama walks back to Zarek and says that now he knows who to hold responsible if there's an "incident." As he leaves, Zarek says that he's not hard to find on Colonial One "running the government. Adama turns long enough to add, "for now." from Preview Clip
1/23/09: The creditibility (and thus his spoilers) of the SciFi Channel Forums poster has been called into question. Though we did read through some of the more recent threads that appeared to be on the "up and up," we had neither the time nor inclination to go back over his entire posting history. As a result, we welcome evidence that his most recent spoilers that we posted actually came from other sources. In the meantime, we're committed to not revising anything we post so we're stuck with his 'spoilers' for the next four episodes even if we end up wearing a little egg on our faces. From TPR
1/22/09: Ron Moore considers this episode "a character piece, a smaller episode. I designed it deliberately to sort of take a breath after the shocking events of the past couple episodes. The show is just about the ship and the crew, where they are before, the next giant arc pulls them into an even bigger event." From The TV Addict
1/22/09: Adama believes that Cylon technology will lead to a habitable space, but his proposal for an alliance is met by fierce resistance. From SciFi Channel
1/22/09: The renegade Cylons seek an alliance with the Colonial fleet while Vice President Tom Zarek rallies opposition to that prospect. From TV Guide
1/22/09: Not everyone agrees with Admiral Adama's plan to use Cylon technology in order to help the fleet find a new home. From AOL
1/20/09: The poster who indicated that Ellen was the Fifth says that Hot Dog's "gotta little mouth to feed." From SciFi Channel Forums [That seems to confirm that Nicolas is his.]
1/19/09: Updated Speculation from TPR
1/19/09: Doc Cottle, Caprica Six and Tigh look at an ultrasound of their baby. Caprica Six says, "That's the future of the entire Cylon race." Tigh responds, "I need a drink." In a meeting with Adama, Lee, Tigh and Helo, Tyrol says that "if you want Cylon technology, we want to be a part of the fleet." In sickbay, Doctor Cottle tells Tyrol, "this is going to be a shock." Adama seems to tell Roslin, "we can hit you." [maybe someone can clarify this bit of the clip for us. ] (Update: 1/20/08: We're told Adama says, "we need you.") Her response to him is, "take your hands off of me." Zarek tells Adama, "If you try to shove an alliance with the Cylons down our throats, there will be consequences." A ship (presumably the tylium ship) jump away as Viper surround it. The crowd that Baltar was speaking to is shouting. Tyrol punches someone. Adama tells Athena, "the use of deadly force is authorize." Kara asks, "is that a threat?" Gaeta responds that it was. From Space (Canadian) Promo [This promo pulls together previous spoilers.]
1/17/09: Tyrol is listening to Baltar preach. He's isn't reacting like everyone else. Then he notices Hot Dog. Tyrol makes his way through the crowd right past Baltar who's still speaking. Hot Dog then notices and moves the same direction. From SciFi Channel [We can't quite figure out what this scene implies other than it has to tie in with the promo pic of Hot Dog, Tyrol and Nicolas in sick bay.]
1/17/09: Zarek says that shoving an alliance with the Cylons down the fleet's throat will have consequences. Hoshi reports that the tylium ship has mutinied and that they are communicating with Colonial One. Adama orders Athena to arrest the Vice President. She asks what she should do if he resists. Adama authorizes the use of deadly force if necessary. Armed Marines move through a ship. Zarek faces someone down. During the promo, Roslin can be seen pushing her pills into the trash. Another shot is a glimpse of Caprica Six sitting next to and looking up at Tigh. From SciFi Channel Promo
1/17/09: Selected Promo Pics from the episode:

Tyrol looks to have taken Nicolas to see Dr. Cottle.
[A Doc Cottle sighting!]

Kara and Gaeta look to being having an interesting conversation.

Kara looking angst-y. {Again.}

Acting President Lee speaks to the Quorum.

Zarek speaking to the Quorum, probably at the same meeting.

Adama and Zarek have a confrontation on Colonial One.
[This looks like the scene from previews where Zarek drops an implied threat.]

Based on this behind-the-scenes pic, Figurski and Adama share a sceen.
[Figurski must be acting chief while Tyrol tends to Nicolas, so what brings Adama down there? Sabotage?]

Adama speaks to the press as Acting President Lee and Vice President Zarek look on.
[Presumably, Adama is not being forthcoming.]

Adama and Zarek talk in Zarek's cell in the brig.

Adama gives Tigh a piece of paper.
[This is likely the scene outside the brig where Adama gives Tigh some coordinates.]

1/10/09: Updated Speculation from TPR
9/18/08: From a call sheet that was dated April 2nd, the following scenes were to be filmed: Adama on Colonial being "not forthcoming" with the press gaggle; Adama sees Zarek in the brig; Adama gives Tigh coordinates in the brig corridor; In Laura's Temporary Quarters, Adama and Laura "don't care." Also, the call sheet mentions that atmospheric smoke will be on set and prep for a Raptor/Greenscreen scene to be shot by the second unit. From [Something (battle? accident? sabotage?) has happened that results in smoke. This results in Adama giving a press conference where he is his usual evasive self with the press. Since Zarek is in the brig, there's a chance that the smoke was caused by sabotage and he's either stands accused or was already locked up and being plied for info. What coordinates Adama is giving Tigh is open to speculation, but the fact that Tigh is being given coordinates right outside the brig seems to indicate that Tigh is back in the command structure. The scene in Laura's Quarters probably indicates that their romance is in full bloom.]
9/18/08: Updated the episode title. From
7/27/08: According to David Eick, episodes 411 and 412 have the fleet dealing with horrible living conditions and the desire to leave the very place that they had longed to find. From Comic Con
6/13/08: Based on a Tricia Helfer interview, Baltar's Head Six does return and the filming schedule possibly puts that return in this episode. She adds that Head Six has become more of an angelic guide and moved away from the sexually-charged manipulator. From IGN Interview
4/5/08: Admiral Adama ends up with blood on his hands and the cuffs of his uniform. From Los Angeles Times Interview
3/8/08: KoenigRules has reported an episode title of "The Disquiet That Follows My Soul." From The Doctor and Mrs. Who
3/8/08: It's being widely reported that BSG will resume filming on March 24th and it would pick up with this episode. From Ron Moore Blog
11/18/07: Ron Moore stated that filming on episode 411 ended (11/17/07) on Saturday and now BSG production has gone on hiatus. This would indicate that the Ron Moore-written episode that he had been scheduled to begin directing just before Thanksgiving was indeed this episode (412). From Ron Moore Blog
11/14/07: [Now we're really confused. Based on Katee Sackhoff's comments, the spoilers about the Ron Moore episode might actually again belong here like we thought in the first place.]
11/14/07: Katee Sackhoff says that episode 11 was filming the first week of November, which would lead one to assume that Ron Moore's episode is indeed episode 12. We'll leave it to you. From TV Tattler [This news fits with most of the previous spoilers (including the apparent filming schedule) except for Ron Moore's statements from below...unless he's treating the two-part mid-season episode as a single entity since he never actually mentions an episode number.
11/11/07: Looks as though the spoilers that we've attributed to this episode are actually for episode 11.
11/3/07: This episode is "set deep in the Cylon world, as well as aboard Galactica. 'On Galactica, things have really begun to fall apart ... and the relationship between President Laura Roslin [Mary McDonnell] and Adm. William Adama [Edward James Olmos] is going to get pretty interesting'." From Los Angeles Times [This seems to contradict the spoilers about Roslin dying around midseason. Perhaps that breakdown of Adama's is for other reasons.]
11/3/07: Moore is also writing the episode that he'll be directing.
11/1/07: The episode that Ron Moore is directing is scheduled to begin filming just before Thanksgiving. From SciFi Wire [Our first guess is that this is episode twelve or thirteen.]
