With Galactica’s nuclear weapons trained on the planet below, the Cylons agree to order their raiders not to land – all except for D’anna, who allows her opposite number to continue onward, risking the attack on the planet. D’anna believes that the Eye of Jupiter can lead her to the mystery of the missing five Cylon models, and Baltar goes with her. On the planet, Apollo keeps Anders from going to save Starbuck – but then orders Dualla to do it instead. Helo and Sharon decide to try their most desperate gambit yet to recover their child, but their plan – to kill Sharon on Galactica and have her resurrect into a new body on the Cylon ship – may put the Colonial fleet at even greater risk. Time is running out to decipher the runes at the 4,000 year old temple, but its true meaning may become clear on its own, with deadly effects for both humans and Cylons.
