Season 4 Final Cylon Spoilers
4/6/08: According to Ron Moore, the reveal of the final Cylon "will be late in the season, it won't be in the first half." From Interview
4/2/08: Ron Moore reiterated that no one in the Last Supper promotional photo is the Final Cylon. From Ron Moore Chicago Tribune Interview [We already knew that Head Six, Natalie and Athena were the humanoid Cylons models, while Tigh, Tyrol and Anders were part of the four just revealed. That leaves Roslin, Lee, Baltar, Starbuck, Helo and Adama as seemingly eliminated from being Cylons.]
3/29/08: The cast has been told who the final Cylon is, although Katee Sackhoff seems skeptical that whoever they were told really is the final Cylon. From Park/Sackhoff Interview
3/22/08: Ron Moore claims that the final Cylon is not one of the primary humans (Roslin, Adama, Lee, Starbuck or Baltar). From TV Guide
3/20/08: Natalie says, "the final five are in your fleet." From SciFi Channel Network Upfront Preview [Five, not four. This also seems to hint at the possibility of that Cylon-human alliance if Natalie is close enough to be speaking to someone in the fleet.]
2/9/07: The new Number Six, Natalie, tells the other humanoid models that "it's time to unite the twelve models once and for all." From SciFi Channel [We assume that includes the final Cylon.]
1/30/07: General spoilers indicate that the first half of the season has three main storylines: the search for Earth with the Kara complications, how the four newly revealed Cylons deal with their identity and the splintering of the Cylons over Earth and the Final Five. The second half of the season [if filmed] would seem to have two main storylines: dealing with the fallout of finding Earth and discovering the identity of the Final Cylon.
1/30/07: Three's (Lucy Lawless) unboxing has to do with what she might know about the Final Five. [This seems to tie in with the long ago spoiler that her appearance would trigger the storyline for the latter half of the fourth season... if it gets filmed.]
1/24/08: Tyrol is the 12th Cylon model. Aaron Douglas @livejournal
1/13/08: In the extended cut found only on the Battlestar Galactica: Razor DVD, the hybrid could be heard to say this as the rescue team moved through the basestar: "At last they've come for me. I feel their lives, their destinies spilling out before me. The denial of the one true path, played out on a world not their own, will end soon enough. Soon there will be four, glorious in awakening. Struggling with the knowledge of their true selves. The pain of revelation bringing new clarity. And in the midst of confusion he will find her, enemies brought together by impossible longing, enemies now joined as one. The way forward, at once unthinkable, yet inevitable. And the fifth, still in shadow, will claw toward the light, hungering for redemption that will only come in the howl of terrible suffering. I can see them all. The seven, now six, self-described machines who believe themselves without sin. But in time, it is sin that will consume them. They will know enmity, bitterness, the wrenching agony of the one splintering into the many. And then they will join the promised land, gathered on the wings of an angel. Not an end, but a beginning." [Guess that's a hint about the final Cylon, as well as foreshadowing of the rumored Cylon civil war]
1/13/08: In Battlestar Galactica: Razor, the hybrid had this to say to Kendra: "Kara Thrace will lead the human race to its end. She is the herald of the apocalypse, the harbinger of Death. They must not follow her. All this has happened before and all of it will happen again, again, again..."
1/12/08: has posted a BSG promotional photo with some vague hints from Ron Moore in which he seems to indicate that the final Cylon is NOT in the picture. [We're not putting a lot of stock in that clue just yet.]
1/12/08: Kara claims that she has been to Earth and has to repeat it several times since it is not believed. Because of accusations and the missing time, Kara even begins to question if the Cylons captured her, brainwashed her or if she's a Cylon. There's a scene in the Memorial Hall where she's considering this and Anders is there trying to be supportive. She tells Adama that he thought of her as his daughter and now he needs to trust her. He says that he can't afford to. In another scene, she tells Adama that they are going the wrong way. From Canadian Hypaspace Preview
11/21/07: At a convention appearance, Katee Sackhoff indicated that Kara spent a lot of time in the brig as well as with Leoben. She also has plenty of scenes with Roslin. Kara also comes to believe that she is a Cylon. At some point, Kara builds a bonfire on a beach. From Roadrunner's LiveJournal
11/3/07: Episode 11: This episode is "set deep in the Cylon world, as well as aboard Galactica. 'On Galactica, things have really begun to fall apart ... and the relationship between President Laura Roslin [Mary McDonnell] and Adm. William Adama [Edward James Olmos] is going to get pretty interesting'." From Los Angeles Times [This seems to contradict the spoilers about Roslin dying around midseason. Perhaps that breakdown of Adama's is for other reasons.]
11/1/07: In Episode 1 ("He That Believath in Me"), Lee is the first to greet Kara and she's surprised because she thinks she's only been gone for six hours. Anders is at first excited to see his estranged wife, then he's worried that she might know he's a Cylon. The other three (Tigh, Tory and Tyrol) task him with trying to pick some information from Kara. This leads to his line [seen in the promos] about saying that if she were a Cylon, he'd still love her. Her response is underwhelming and continues the strained ties between the two. From Cult Times Interview with Michael Trucco
10/14/07: In Razor's last 20 minutes, the film features a faction of Cylons who are responsible for protecting the "Guardian." This is something that carries over as a subplot into the fourth season. From Eclipse Magazine Review
10/14/07: Tigh asks Adama if he believes in miracles and Adama says that he doesn't. Caprica Six tells Roslin that she can feel that the final five are close. Roslin, wearing what looks to be a hospital gown, fires a gun. A woman [Roslin?] tells Adama that it's a Cylon trick. Tigh takes a pistol out of his locker. In CIC Tigh points the gun across at Adama [or whoever is standing next to Adama] while can be heard asking what he's doing. Baltar's cult thinks of him as a healer, while he seeks some hope for the future. Roslin asks Starbuck how she got "here." Adama shakes Starbuck as she can be heard asking why they can't trust her. She also says that she saw Earth. Anders tells Starbuck that if she's a Cylon then she has been since the beginning. Cylons, including an Eight, a Six and a Cavil are seen. Lastly, Kara lays on the deck and screams, "We're going the wrong way." From SciFi Channel Season 4 Promo
8/10/07: Episode 5: In spite of the Adama/Starbuck conflict, he decides that he has to trust her in order to find Earth so he sends her on a mission to the Demetrius.
8/10/07: Episode 4 ("Escape Velocity"):Various spoilers seem to be pointing to a bit of a civil war breaking out within the Cylon once they learn that four of the remaining models are in the human fleet. This leads to dissention over whether or not to continue to attack the human fleet. Apparently, three models (all of the same gender) will be entirely wiped out with the help of the Cylon Centurions. [Not sure if all of this takes place in episode four or that's just where the arc starts.]
8/10/07: The name for the 13th Colony in the Scripture is 'Cylon'. From Ausiello
7/4/07: Aaron Douglas spilled that the Final Five Cylons are completely different and set apart from the other seven human models. According to the press article, these five aren't even Cylons (at least the modern version first created in the colonies), but rather immortal. These five fit with the "it's all happened before and will happen again" mantra. From MediaBlvd Magazine [The bit from Aaron Douglas isn't really anything new. The part about how they fit into the Cylon history is new, but we again wonder how much of it is actually speculation.]
7/4/07: During the digital media tour, the press saw a completely rebuilt (shiny new) Viper, which looks matches the Viper that Starbuck was seen flying the finale. The fact that it's been rebuilt sparks suspicion in the fleet that Starbuck is a Cylon. From MediaBlvd Magazine [This seems to match with what Katee Sackhoff hinted in previous interviews.]
6/23/07: Apparently early in the season, there is suspicion in the fleet that Kara is a Cylon as Katee Sackhoff says that she does a lot of screaming including about not being a Cylon.
6/23/07: Episode 3 ("The Tie That Binds"): According to Katee Sackhoff, the fifth Cylon has not been revealed yet.
6/3/07: The final five Cylons' "true" backstories will be revealed. From Lower Hudson Online Blog
6/3/07: The season will end with a definitive end to the "quest." Though not discounting the possibility of miniseries or movies, the main storyline will be completed [unlike Stargate SG-1's unresolved Ori storyline]. From Lower Hudson Online Blog
4/17/07: On the Cylons: "The plan is as we go into the next season or so, to start bringing more of that to the fore and tying it into everything else that's been going on in the show. If you take the story all the way to the end, you do need to give the audience some answers to some of these things. Maybe not everything. There's probably some elements that we will leave mysterious even after the show is over. But I think you have to at least ground the audience in some reality for some of these things that have happened. Even if the explanation is a supernatural one, you want to give them some explanation and feel a payoff for the time and effort they've put into the show up to that point." From Ron Moore Interview with AV Club
4/15/07: Neither Adama nor Roslin is the final Cylon. It was decided that having either be Cylons would strain the credibility of the show. From Ron Moore Season Finale Q&A Podcast
4/15/07: RDM on whether the fourth season would be the last: "The show has really moved into the third act in the three-act structure where we're all moving towards the finale and the climax of all these different plot lines. In my head there's two chapters to go in the story and those can be of varying lengths." From Ron Moore Interview with MTV [Finding Earth is one chapter. TPR assumes the newly discovered Cylons and the Final Five make up the other chapter.]
3/27/07: There have already been clues about the identity of the fifth Cylon. From Ron Moore Q&A on Boards [However, in other interviews he wouldn't commit to whether we've already seen this fifth Cylon.]
3/26/07: There is a developing storyline concerning what D'Anna saw and who she was talking to when she saw the Final Five, but Lucy Lawless has not yet been contacted and her availability (due to filming the pilot of Footballers' Wives) might be an issue. Ron Moore Interview with
3/26/07: The fifth Cylon might or might not be revealed during the fourth season. From Ron Moore Interview with
3/26/07: Anders, Tigh, Tory and Tyrol are full Cylons, but "different fundamentally." From Ron Moore Interview with
3/26/07: RDM's comments on the significance of the the four hearing the music: "It's more that they arrived at a certain point in space and they were made aware of who they are. The music manifests a dawning awareness. These are four of the final five, which puts them in a separate category from everybody else. There are reasons for that I can't really get into. We'll be playing out those plot lines for quite a while." From Ron Moore Interview with
3/10/07: RDM response to a question about winging it with the mythology: "I began to put into place most of the fundamental cosmology of the BSG universe as far back as the first season. Since then, we've talked it over in the writers' room periodically so as to keep everything within the same parameters. There are still some elements to put into place, but we pretty much have it worked out by now." From Ronald D. Moore Q&A @ Board
3/9/07: Jane Espenson recently had this to say about whether the showrunners had a plan: "So imagine my delight when I recently began full-time at BSG and learned that there are (and have been) plans that extend far longer into the future than one season!" From SyFy Portal Interview
2/21/07: David Eick confirmed that a familiar character would be revealed in Season 3 to be one of the final five Cylons, but had this to say when asked about the last four: "I think the audience has to start by asking the question, 'What really defines a Cylon?' That's part of what Season 4 is really going to be dedicated to. And the tip of that iceberg will be introduced in the season finale." From Ask Ausiello
