Word of the Sharon Cylon’s presence aboard Galactica is leaked to the press, who begin demanding explanations from Admiral Adama and President Roslin. Billy proposes to Dualla, but is shattered when she turns him down. Even more shattered is Sesha Abinell, who lost her husband in a Cylon attack on one of the Colonial ships. With the help of her husband’s brother and a few others, she takes hostages in the bar aboard Cloud Nine, demanding only one thing for their release: she wants the Cylon rumored to be aboard Galactica. Among the hostages are Apollo and Dualla, who are still tiptoeing around their own relationship, Billy, recovering from Dualla turning him down, and Ellen Tigh, who is naturally there to have a drink or three. Starbuck and a contingent of Galactica’s Marines are also enjoying some R&R aboard Cloud Nine, but a bungled attempt to get into the bar and end the hostage crisis only results in bloodshed, and Apollo is hit by Starbuck’s friendly fire. With his son’s life fading away, Admiral Adama has one ace left to play – but it may carry an even higher price.
