In this episode we learn more of Admiral Cain's past wrongdoings. I don't know if she is heartless, or if she is just so obsessed with taking it to the Cylons that her judgement is clouded, but either way, she is quite the piece of work. In Cain we see the picture of human cruelty, shortsightedness and falability.
Starbuck's timely arrival and promotion to Pegasus CAG may perhaps be hinting at an increased leadership role for her at some point in the future. And of course Adama's final orders to her at the end of the episode certainly will put her in the position to have a possible long lasting impression on the future of the fleet and humanity.
The end of the episode puts the final pieces of the puzzle together for one last showdown between Adama and Cain. All the friction between the Galactica and Pegasus has been building up and will (presumably) come to some sort of conclusion in the next episode.
The episode continues the drama, suspense and tension that was established in the previous one and, as usual with Galactica to date, keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat. Hopefully the conclusion to this conflict will prove to be as captivating as the events in it have been to date.
