My favorite Faux Space Family begins its trek across wherever. Let's talk about:

- 33
- Water
- Bastille Day

Jacob never recapped this season, so there's a dearth of pith and wisdom out there and I feel like we can fix that. (Plus, "dearth of pith"? That was fun to say.)

Well, I can only assume that Boomer (during a blackout) put the explosives on board to cause their mission to fail. That she'd blow up the raptor if they actually found water. Like, she had to actually go on the mission, but if the two of them found water, she couldn't go back and let that be known. So the two options were to try to hide that from her copilot (I'm not sure that's possible) or blow them up. She does seem to have a mission to destroy the fleet's water supply.

The only thing that doesn't quite make sense is that she has another mission to fulfill later in the season. I've always assumed that this later mission was the primary objective. If she killed herself (acting as a Cylon) she'd foil that greater mission. But maybe I'm wrong, and she's there, having the blackouts and acting as a Cylon, to basically cause trouble wherever she can, for as long as she can.

Good point about the later mission Mary. It does make sense that the later mission is the primary objective. However, at that point, would she be aware of what the later mission is, or even that there may be an important greater mission? Specifically, is Boomer programmed to do specific things (like destroy the water, and the later mission), or is there a constant push for Boomer to do whatever she can to destroy Galactica? If there is a latent desire to destroy Galactica, then that can explain both the water and the later mission. If she is programmed to do specific things -- then you have the contradiction you mentioned.
