Tallos feels threatened by Baltar; Simon has returned to the Caprican resistance, but is it really the same Simon?

 

Story Summary

 

The fleet's command crew discover Fleet Eight's body and the video message she left behind about her frame-up attempt. Baltar is led to believe that Tallos may not be "resurrectable" due to being cobbled together from the debris of a dozen different centurions.

 

Tallos is finally sent to the planetoid to begin mining operations, monitored on site by Apollo, Helo, and Baltar with the kill switch. But Tallos attacks Baltar, tearing the kill switch device from his wrist and tossing it into a volcanic pool. But, just then, the Cylons launch an attack on the fleet.

 

On Caprica, Caprica Cavil interrogates Simon, with both indicating that this Simon is a different one from the one who previously acted as the Buccaneers' medic, sent to reinfiltrate the resistance.
