Sharon-Prime delves deep into her memories while Darrin rejects his.

 

Story Summary

 

Darrin breaks through his false memories and embraces his Cylon side, while the so-called Sharon Prime (Captain Valerii) faces a similar situation and comes down on the side of her human emotions. Sharon Prime teaches the other Number Eight models in the garden about their human side, while Darrin turns the antebellum centurions back to the Cylon side, allowing the Cylons to regain control of all of the infected Centurions and Raiders. When the Cylons beginning gunning down the antebellum Centurions, Darrin confronts Number Three about it, proclaiming, "But we saved them. They're with us, now!" She responds, "They're old models, Darrin. Beautiful in their own way, but fundamentally flawed...just like you," while pointing a gun at his head.
