But the previous episode seemed to suggest that only a few days had gone by before she and Boomer made their escape. So either something unrevealed went on between the time they escaped and the time they rejoined Galactica, or this jumping process sometimes screws with both space and time, or some writer messed up the timeline.
I thought the arc kept jumping back and forth, i.e. - 18 months ago, 10 months ago, 4 months ago, until they wouldn't show how long ago that event was taking, which led me to believe it was present day. I assumed that when Boomer stole away with Ellen, it was real time activity, but you could be right - they could have been running for a period of time, and possibly went to some locale for reasons as of yet unknown.
