A Galactic(a) Endeavor - Home (2x06-07)

After 19 episodes, Helo finally makes it back to the fleet, though his pregnant Cylon sidekick isn't as well received, but she does promise to lead Roslin and Co. to the Tomb of Athena which will point the way to Earth.

Meanwhile, Adama is coping with the betrayal of Roslin and little Lee. He describes the feeling as a snake tightening around his chest. Finally, he decides to forgive all and to bring "the family" back together. This is a popular idea. He catches up with the landing party, and they find the Tomb, just as described in the scriptures. To the Lagoon nebula they will go.

This was a pretty good and believable resolution to the arc. The fleet has finally come together in realizing that they really need to find a home, and Roslin was right to put that as the top priority. This begins a new stage of the show evolving from escape and survival to having a real goal and destination in mind. 4 out of 5 tombs of Athena.
