When the resistance hear of the betrayal, her husband, Saul is given the unenviable task of killing her. Saul kills his wife with a drink containing poison.

Near the end of the series run, Saul is reunited with his wife Ellen once more. It is revealed that Ellen is the twelfth Cylon model and had been resurrected after being poisoned.

In the Plan, she is seen drinking and talking with a Brother John Cavil clone in a bar on Picon. Ellen manages to survive the attack and is taken aboard one of the survivor crafts where she stays until she is reunited with Saul.
