  • This episode is the mid-season cliffhanger for the first ten episodes of Season 4. The conclusion to the cliffhanger, "Sometimes a Great Notion", will not air until 2009.
  • The episode was given an advance screening in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 11th, in order to draw attention for the upcoming Emmy Award nominations. [1]
  • Hoshi is mentioned in this episode, but remains unseen or unheard.



  • Is Number Three honest in her claim that there are only four of the Final Five in the Fleet? If so, where is the fifth and last Cylon? If she's lying, is it because she still harbors distrust for her compatriots and the humans?
  • What of the other Twos, Fours, and Fives?
  • What happened to Earth?
  • Will the other Cylons find the Fleet and the rebels, as well as Earth? If so, will they finish what they started?
