What I hate about mid-season hiatuses is how they waste tension. There was a good deal of build-up towards the end 'Pegasus', and yet all of that tension seems lost in what is essentially a 'previously on Galactica' that takes the first 20 minutes of this installment.
It does, nevertheless, make dramatic sense. You have to tone done the tension a notch to bring it up back two - or eleven - which is what the final sequence, with the overlaying of dramatic pronouncements from both commanders, Adama and Cain, accomplishes.
A superb performance from Katee Sackhoff is worth a special mention, she truely shines as the CAG of Pegasus. I'd give it a full 10 if not for the somewhat wasted beginning and a slightly lackluster performance from Jamie Bamber.
