Caprica: Gravedancing

Daniel preps himself to go on the popular Backtalk with Baxter Sarno to put a good spin on his daughter's role in the bombing tragedy, despite protests from Amanda who is unaware that Sam is waiting for his moment to carry out his brother's requested hit.

Meanwhile, the GDD begin raids and searches for evidence linked to the Soldiers of the One, as Lacy tries to get Keon to help her make Zoe's delivery to Gemenon.

Episode Notes
As Philo is scanning for music, one of the songs he briefly stops on is the theme from the original Battlestar Galactica, which is recognised in-universe as the colonial anthem.

Sam's hood ornament is a bull. The bull represents the constellation Taurus, which corresponds to the name of the colony Tauron.

Ronald D. Moore and Remi Aubuchon are credited as creators beginning with this episode. The developer credits for the previous two episodes may have been in error, as the DVD changes them to creator credits.

Episode Quotes
Amanda: We are not company spokespeople. We're parents!
Daniel: Parents? Actually, no, we're not.

Amanda: What is this to you? Did you lose someone on that train?
Agent Duram: I lost everyone on that train.

Daniel: My solstice wish was for free publicity. Probably should have been a little more specific.
(the audience is silent save for a cough)
Baxter Sarno: I feel so much better about my monologue right now.

Episode Goofs
Singh says that the bombing of the Holo Cafe occurred "in the middle of the night." However, as just viewed moments earlier, it's clearly not night when the bomb goes off.

Daniel tells Amanda that he's about to go on international television. Presumably, he means "intercolonial".
