Synopsis >

With recent catastrophic events still fresh, the crew of Galactica is numb. Some are losing themselves in the bottle while others, specifically Lee, are unable to concentrate on effectively doing their jobs. Lee is pulled from CAG and assigned to protect Romo Lampkin (Mark Sheppard), an attorney called in to defend Gaius Baltar (James Callis) after his original lawyer is killed in what may have been an act of sabotage. Lampkin's provocative tactics and the fact that he once worked for Lee's grandfather - a storied defense attorney with a checkered past on Caprica - begin to revive the grounded pilot from his despair. When they narrowly avoid death in another bomb plot, Lee and Lampkin become closer. Caprica Six (Tricia Helfer), expected to testify against Baltar, has mixed feelings about her ex-lover, which Lampkin exploits masterfully. Meanwhile, the crew debates whether the bombings are the handiwork of a Cylon infiltrator, Baltar's many foes or perhaps a radical inspired by his writings. When a third bomb goes off in Lampkin's quarters, Lee discovers that the lawyer's briefcase contains answers to more than one riddle.
