EPISODE 10: THE EYE OF JUPITER
WRITTEN BY: Mark Verheiden
DIRECTED BY: Michael Rymer
Logline: The possible discovery of the Eye of Jupiter on the algae planet
leads to a deadly stand-off, as the Cylons and humans risk all for a chance
to find the way to Earth.
While working on the algae planet, Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) discovers the
Temple of Five, reputed to be the home of the Eye of Jupiter, which will
guide the ones who discover it to Earth. His report is intercepted by the
Cylons, who request a meeting with Adama (Edward James Olmos) and Laura
(Mary McDonnell). Their proposal: let us have the Eye and we will let you
leave unharmed. Adama's counter-proposal: make any move to take the Eye and
we'll nuke the planet.
The Cylons bring another piece of news: Sharon (Grace Park) and Helo's
(Tahmoh Penikett) baby is alive, but not well. Sharon is initially
skeptical, but when Adama confirms that Laura hid the baby at her school,
she and Tyrol being to make plans to rescue her.
As the standoff continues, tensions rise in both camps. On the Cylon
baseship, D'Anna's (Lucy Lawless) sense that she and Baltar (James Callis)
share a destiny that might not include the others sows dissension, while on
the algae planet, efforts to protect the Eye are complicated by Lee's
simmering affair with Kara (Katee Sackhoff), especially since Lee (Jamie
Bamber) is counting on Anders (Michael Trucco), Kara's husband, to rally the
civilians to the cause. Then the Cylons launch a flight of raiders, bound
for the algae planet, forcing Adama to show he's not bluffing.
