—Actor Michael Emerson, who plays Ben
"That's what my father does - he manipulates people.

—Alex in "The Man From Tallahassee"
During Ben's turning, we see a shot of the Chariot
The Chariot is Key Seven of the Major Arcana. In classical astrology, there were seven things that predictably wandered against the fixed stars. Mastering those planets meant mastering the system. The Chariot represents the possibility of traveling through the mysteries of the universe.
to help save earth as early as possible.
The four cylons revealed at the end of Season 3 (Samuel Anders, Chief Galen Tyrol, Tory Foster and Colonel Saul Tigh) discover, through flashbacks they experience while wandering around a shoreline, that they had lived on Earth, 2000 years ago, in a previous lifetime.
On Earth, Tigh converses with D'Anna Biers. She says she is devastated by the knowledge that history repeats itself endlessly. Faced with the choice of being constantly hunted by Cavil or dying on the planet, she chooses to remain behind.
