Caprica: Blowback

Amanda tries to get more information from Clarice, but can't get close enough. In order to provide her with the equipment to do so, Duram would have to give her up as his CI, a dangerous confession given the possible leak within the department.

Lacy is taken with others to an STO training camp on Gemenon, but their ship gets hijacked along the way.

Daniel continues perfecting Amanda's avatar, unaware that he's been given even shorter time by the Guatrau whom he discovered has been shipping Cylons to STO on Gemenon.

At a Caprican spaceport, Lacy meets a boy named Odin Sinclair who's there because of his fervently religious parents. Diego rounds them up along with other recruits on a jumpship. Shortly after take-off, Lacy notices another ship flying nearby in the window. It suddenly hitches onto theirs and is soon boarded by hijackers who kill the STO trainers. The hijackers are polytheists and begin making demands on the phone to an unspecified authority. They make an example of one boy as he pleads for his life as they take him into another part of the ship where he is airlocked shortly afterwards. As the hijackers continue to make demands, Odin has discovered a bar that is loose, but needs time to loosen it behind the hijackers' backs. One recruit saves his life by denouncing the One God and is taken to be treated with care. Another stands up, but instead denounces the false gods before she is airlocked. Odin and Lacy are overheard talking and Lacy is then taken to be airlocked. She attacks Odin for buying his time, allowing the hijackers to get close enough for all the recruits to make their move. The tables have turned as the recruits begin fighting back, but are stopped by none other than Diego. The whole thing was a ruse concocted by the STO to test the recruits, with dummies being airlocked...
