Anders getting shot in the back of the neck was written into the series when, during the season hiatus brought on by the writer's strike, Michael Trucco got into a serious car accident, having miraculously survived and without any paralysis, but left with a nasty scar on the back of his neck.

Episode Quotes
Anders: Wonder what Gaeta's gonna do.
Tigh: In your case, cut off one of your frakkin' legs.

Zarek: This is Tom Zarek, President of the Twelve Colonies. It's over, Laura. Saul Tigh was killed attempting to escape. Bill Adama was tried and found guilty of his crimes. Firing squad executed him this morning. It's done, Laura. You need to think about the people of this fleet now and surrender.
Roslin: No. Not now, not ever. Do you hear me? I will use every cannon, every bomb, every bullet, every weapon I have down to my own eyeteeth to end you. I swear it! I'm coming for all of you!

(at the firing squad)
Adama: Ready. Aim.
Gaeta: (noticing his leg) It stopped.
Adama: Fire.
