The human-Cylon standoff over the mysterious “Eye of Jupiter” has reached a breaking point. On the algae planet, D’Anna, Baltar, Brother Cavil (Dean Stockwell) and a team of Centurions prepare their assault on the Temple of the Five, where the Eye supposedly lies hidden. Apollo and Anders attempt to defend the temple long enough for Tyrol to locate and decipher the eye… but they won’t be able to hold the Cylons back for long.
Meanwhile, Starbuck‘s Raptor has crashed among the distant hills, and Apollo sends his wife Dualla on a risky mission to save her—an order she dutifully, but unhappily, obeys. On Galactica, Sharon decides to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to try and rescue her daughter Hera from the Cylons.
