Recap

Olaf and Clarice are arguing about going back home, fearing that the Graystones have called the GDD. Just then Singh confronts them, revealing himself to be their contact Alvo. Realising that it's safe, they take him to their attic, showing him the resurrection programme. He assures them that the Graystones haven't called the police and will interject to keep them from foiling the Atlas bombing...

Episode Notes
Series star Brian Markinson does not appear in this episode.

Iris Paluly had a recurring role in the fourth season of Battlestar Galactica as a Quorum delegate (named Dahlia in her last appearance). Mike Dopud had a small recurring guest spot as Specialist Gage during the second and fourth season of the show.

Though not stated onscreen, the final sequence in this episode is set five years later. Had the show been given a second season, some of the events that happened in the intermediate time would have been explored, such as Zoe's encounter with one of the Final Five in V-world.

Despite the appearance of the episode's coda, it was not designed to be the final episode, as it was produced long before Syfy made their decision.

The very last image of the episode is of Caprica in space. This is the exact same shot that was shown in the opening of Battlestar Galactica's series finale "Daybreak", established pre-Fall. The fade in of the show's title seen on DVD and Syfy was absent in the original airing on Space.

Clarice rhetorically asks the Cylons "Are you alive?" These are not only the first words spoken in the Battlestar Galactica miniseries (and thus the series), but is asked by a Cylon, a Number Six copy, to a human.
