I can definitely say I would have done the same thing as well. This really helps drive the point home that they Cylons really aren't that different from humans, which I think was an important recurring message throughout the series. We saw glimpses of this in season 1, and it started building more in seasons 2 and 3, and definitely climaxed sometime around the Cylon Civil war in season 4. EDIT: Jedimarine: I think at that point it didn't really matter. Their asses had just about been toast, and I think Kara jumping them to Earth definitely helped distract people from Tory's murder. Plus, it was incredibly chaotic in the CIC when it went down, so it's entirely possible not everyone took notice and only realized it after the fact what had happened. If you think about it (and this is a bit of a stretch) Tory's murder did get them to a new home...Cavil and company started attacking, they had to get out of their very quickly, so Kara punches in the coordinates and BAM! Earth. Does that excuse Tyrol for what he did? I think not. But as Pavail said earlier, I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who wouldn't have done what he did (which still doesn't make it right, of course).
