If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know I’m a big Battlestar Galactica fan (or BSG). Anyway, I was reading Wired today and they ran a story about a website that’s taking bets on who the final Cylon is going to be. My guess was Ellen Tigh, but really who knows at this point — oh wait, some of the writers and the producers know who it is.
Well, imagine my surprise when I see who people are betting on (Cough! Cough! Dualla). Last week’s episode had us listening to a song Mr. Gaeta sang when he was in pain — after recovering from a amputated leg. In that song, there was a reference to the hybid. Nothing overt, mind you. Just a line saying “To have her, please, one day wake.” At the end of the episode, the hybrid is reconnected to the ship and she does indeed “wake.” So much so, that her first act is to spin up the FTL drive and jump away from the fleet with President Roslin on board. Now, it’s possible that Gaeta, like Baltar, is connected to the Cylons, but not one of them .
Mr. Gaeta’s odds, by the way, are 3-2 that he’s the final Cylon.
Speaking of that episode featuring Mr. Geata…the guy who composes the music for BSG has a really detailed blog about the show (and that episode in particular) that is really great.
Okay BSG fans, who do you think is the final Cylon?
