  • The Delphi Convalescent Institute appears to be the same location the Cylons use as a farm after the Fall, and where Kara Thrace, amongst other women, are kept prisoner. Indeed, in The Farm, Simon states that the building was formerly a mental hospital.



  • Is there any weight to Clarice's theory that God is speaking to her through Amanda and Zoe? Amanda claims she saw Clarice's face while she was recovering in the Institute. Could this be evidence of a higher power at work, just as the Angels influence events during and after the Fall?
  • Following on from this question, could there be a connection between Amanda's visions of her brother and the apparitions that appear to people in the Fleet sixty years later?
