Battlestar Galactica: A Disquiet Follows My Soul

The 14th episode (or 12th not counting Razor) of the final season of Battlestar Galactica is actually the directorial début of series creator Ronald D. Moore. Like the previous episode, A Disquiet Follows My Soul is a bottle episode, meaning it is relatively action-free episode with very few special effects. In this episode we see the crew of Galactica and the fleet increasingly frustrated by the discovery of Earth as well as Adama's decision to alliance with the rebel Cylons. The need to upgrade the Colonial fleet's FTL technology, that would mean the boarding of the ships by Cylons, also causes a political fallout with Tom Zarek leading a revolt.

Re-cap (with spoilers)
  • Galen Tyrol isn't the biological father of Cally's child. Hera thus remains the first and only Human-Cylon child.
  • Nicky's real biological father is Hot Dog.
  • Roslin seems to have given up. She is also bald.
  • Zarek leads a revolt in the quarom and a vote bars Cylons from entering the fleet without prior permission.
  • Felix accuses Kara as a Cylon colloborator. I wished she socked him then and there.
  • The Trylium ship jumps away under orders by Zarek, though it was quickly recaptured.
  • Felix proposes a mutiny with Zarek.
  • Adama and Roslin gets it on.
