Herc's Ain't It Cool News BSG Article[Herc isn't infallible and his post seemed to indicate that he didn't like being scooped so it could just be damage control on his part. Although, we at TPR are listening to our own Inner Six who finds our posting and Herc's seeming folllow-up an hour later too much to be coincidental. Our Inner Six has convinced us that Herc feels like TPR scooped him even if he won't admit it.] 3/16/07: Updated Season Finale Rumor/Speculation 3/13/07: Updated Season Finale Rumor/Speculation 3/11/07: Baltar lies on his bed in his cell. A young girl is given entry. She calls him. He sits up and wonders who she is. He assumes that she is a member of the press. He says that he's under orders from his lawyer not to speak to any member of the press. She says that she's not. She pulls out a picture and says that it's her son. She says that he's sick and asks Baltar to bless him. Baltar stands up and walks over. He calls for a guard. He tells her that he's not God, a god or any other derivation. She says that she believes in him. He says that he has no special powers. She begs him to take the picture. The guard walks in and wants to know what is going on. Baltar tells the guard that he nees his privacy. She gets him to take the picture as the guard leads the woman out as she continues to plead with Baltar.
