In Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II, Gina Inviere takes the nuke Baltar had given her and sets it off, destroying Cloud Nine and several nearby ships. The radiation from this explosion ultimately draws the Cylons' attention, bringing them down in wrath upon the settlement on New Caprica.
Is there any indication as to Gina's primary motivation for setting off the nuke? I see several possibilities...
- She knew the Cylon fleet was close enough to detect it, and she set it off as a beacon
- She knew nothing of the Cylon fleet's location, and was simply acting out of bred-in racial hatred, as a Cylon, in a desire to kill a large number of humans
- She knew nothing of the fleet, was not acting as a Cylon, but was simply acting out as a victimized, emotional being with feelings, lashing out at the humans, who she saw as her attackers after her treatment at the hands of Admiral Cain's crew
- She was not acting out of planning, hatred or vengeance, but rather despair, again as the emotional, feeling being she was, feeling unable to continue to live with the scars of her attack, choosing instead to end her life in a dramatic fashion
Or perhaps there are other possible motivations that I missed?
Is there any canonical indication as to what her primary motivation may have been?
