Question: I have just been blown away by these final episodes of Battlestar Galactica. I'm almost afraid to ask for spoilers. Eh, frak it, what's to come? -- John
Ausiello: I'm told this Friday's episode is 33 percent about Ellen Tigh, 31 percent about Brother Cavil, and 5 percent about this awesomeness. The other 31 percent remained unaccounted for at press time. (And I agree with you about these BSG eps being top-notch. Well, mostly top-notch. I still maintain that the Jan. 23 episode was a dud.)  Clip is at http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/02/exclusive-battl.html

Spoilers for "No Exit", airing 2/13: Anders lives. According to a Canadian on a scifi list I'm on said: "The promo revealed that Sam isn't dead, and may play a huge role in revealing the mysteries of the Cylons. It showed Sam talking to Starbuck from a hospital bed with bandages on his head saying "Kara, something wonderful has happened. You have to get the others. I remember everything. Earth. Why we're here. EVERYTHING!" It is also intercut with scenes of Ellen Tigh waking up in a Resurrection Chamber." Here in the US we only got Ellen. ~ Suzanne

BSG Season 4.5 Spoilers:

Despite efforts to filter out unreliable content, this information can be considered RUMOR and subject to change or otherwise inaccurate. Season 4.5 spoilers are dated and will not be edited after the original posting in an effort to establish a track record (good and bad), rather than revisionist history. Webmaster's comments can be found in italicized brackets.

General Spoilers

Season 4.5 General Spoilers
2/4/09: Regarding Boomer and Cavil's relationship being explored/explained, Grace Park said, "Just a little bit. A little bit. But it's kind of more indirect in Season 4.5, and it's a little bit more clear, I think, in The Plan." From Galactica.tv [That little bit seems to imply that Cavil isn't dead? Or Boomer is still involved with the Cavils in some way, but also that the Boomer/Cavil storyline isn't prominent in the last episodes.]
1/27/09: According to Ron Moore, they had to retroactively eliminate Tyrol as Nicky's father because "It was important to the mythology of the show that only Hera be the only [hybrid child] ... Hera's role in the firmament of the show is very firmly established in my mind and I had a specific place where I wanted it to go." From Chicago Tribune & From Podcast Commentary
1/26/09: According to Ron Moore, "We’ll deal with [the importance of Caprica Six's baby] in episodes coming up." From Chicago Tribune
1/23/09: The creditibility (and thus his spoilers) of the SciFi Channel Forums poster has been called into question. Though we did read through some of the more recent threads that appeared to be on the "up and up," we had neither the time nor inclination to go back over his entire posting history. As a result, we welcome evidence that his most recent spoilers that we posted actually came from other sources. In the meantime, we're committed to not revising anything we post so we're stuck with his 'spoilers' for the next four episodes even if we end up wearing a little egg on our faces. [From TPR]
1/22/09: More from the poster who indicated that Ellen was the Fifth: the cycle was disrupted (deliberately) by the birth of the half-human, half-Cylon children. Zarek's insurrection is put down fast and hard, apparently. Cavil returns at some point. From SciFi Channel Forums
1/21/09: According to Tricia Helfer, "we finally understand what or how [Inner Six] is or why she's there." From IGN
1/21/09: According to Tahmoh Penikett, "I've heard a lot of speculation about what's going to happen with Helo and Sharon and their family. It won't be predictable -- it's going to surprise a lot of people, blow them away. It's good, though, it's good. You know what's great too? There are some questions. Not everything is completely answered... Helo and Sharon are going to be tested like they've never been tested before. Some of the best scenes I've had with Grace [Park, who plays Sharon] are actually in this last season." From Zap2It [Not everything is completely answered? Does this have to do with his interest in all the Eights seen in the first half? There were promo pics of an apparently wounded Helo. Does this mean Helo dies (that would be resolution) without resolving some internal or Helo/Sharon issue? Or was he actually referring to the show as a whole and not just Helo/Sharon?]
1/20/09: More spoilers for the next four episodes from the poster who indicated that Ellen was the Fifth: Zarek gets back in touch with his terrorist side. Romo Lampkin's manipulations "catch up with him" [We're guessing Blood on the Scales could have to do with him.]. The Final Five aren't "bad," just negligent and Baltar knew that Ellen was a Cylon since the blood tests. Speaking of Baltar, he's the "guardian of god's children" as Inner Six said he was. Roslin continues her downward spiral. Starbuck isn't a Cylon. Lastly, the show's cycle of time has been thrown off, which explains the poor performance of the prophecies. From SciFi Channel Forums
1/19/09: As far as characters getting killed off in the final episodes, Ron Moore said, "there's more to come" even after Dee's suicide. From MediaBlvd
1/19/09:Ron Moore says, "[D'Anna will not appear in any further episodes. D'Anna remained on earth and lived there for the rest of her life." From MediaBlvd
1/19/09:According to Ron Moore, "Romo [Lampkin] will be back two more times this season, once as a lawyer, and once as something even bigger." From MediaBlvd [We've seen spoilers that he's in the finale and the preview clip of Romo in handcuffs. Perhaps Romo gets involved in Gaeta and Zarek's uprising?]
1/19/09: Describing Lee's story arc, Ron Moore said, "His role as leader of the civilian government will become even more important in the second half of the season and Lee will provide a key idea in the final episode that brings the show to its conclusion." From MediaBlvd
1/19/09: Concerning Baltar's story arc, Ron Moore said, "He's about to take a step back from where he's been going, given the shocking discovery of Earth, but he will also find that perhaps there is something both true and untrue about his conception of 'God' and what it means for him and the entire human race." From MediaBlvd
1/19/09: Regarding the role of "All Along the Watchtower," Ron Moore said, "The relationship of the song to the show will be illuminated when all is said and done... by the time I provided the final story arc, [the network] understood where and how it fit into our mythology." From MediaBlvd
1/19/09: Ron Moore had this to say about the Final Five, "At this point, I think that you've seen a lot of how these arcs will play themsevles out, but I can tell you that there are more answers ahead for the Final Five particularly in terms of understanding exactly their responsibilities for the events we've seen transpire." From MediaBlvd [Note that he said 'five' and not 'four', so Ellen is in that mix.]
1/18/09: Ron Moore says, "I think you can read that as fact" as far as what was said in episode 411 about the thirteen tribe, the Cylons, coming to the planet and calling it "Earth." He was then asked, That planet is Earth? We’re not going to find out, “Oh, there’s this other Earth over here...” This is the only Earth we’ll see?" and Moore responded, "They have found Earth. This is the Earth that the 13th Colony discovered, they christened it Earth. They found Earth." He adds that as far as the colonies and Earth go, "as we get through subsequent episodes, there will be more explanations, and actually all this timeline stuff does lock into place. You have to read the subsequent chapters, but it will actually make sense." From Chicago Tribune [A few months ago when we went with the theory that they had indeed found Earth and that the thirteenth tribe was Cylon, we got criticized a bit in some forums. Well, it looks like we got one right (which might be a first) if we can take Ron Moore at his word. That said, the rumors of the series ending with Six moving through modern-day Times Square in New York City puts a spin on what Mooore says. Based on what little we have to go on, it seems that we can only eliminate BSG's timeline being in OUR present. The events of the show could still be either in the distant past or the distant future thanks to that whole cyclical mythology.]
1/18/09: When asked will we "come to know, in this next set of episodes, who knew that Ellen was a Cylon, and that will play out in what’s coming?" Ron Moore simply answered, "yes." From Chicago Tribune [We can't help but think that Cavil has known more about the Final Five than he let on. The question is whether anyone else did too.]
1/18/09: Kate Vernon says that there will be a "huge" reveal in every single episode of season 4.5. From Access Hollywood
1/18/09: When Kate Vernon was asked about whether there would be "fireworks" when Ellen and Tigh were reunited because Saul had poisoned her, Vernon answered that Ellen "is beyond that. She understands that that needed to happen at that time... There's a very happy reunion... only the way Ellen and Saul can express it." She also refers to her and Saul as being hybrids or "half and half." Apparently, how Ellen comes back has to do with her "job" or "destiny... in the bigger picture." She says that when Ellen returns, she was finally written in a "much broader, richer, deeper" way. When she was asked about Tigh seeing her in Caprica Six, she says that Six was not modelled after Ellen. From Access Hollywood [So Ellen is indeed "reborn" and reunited with Saul. Who would have thought that Saul and Ellen would be the BSG couple to literally have an eternal love story? When Ellen returns, she is apparently enlightened a bit and might have a storyline that doesn't largely involve partying and/or sleeping around. What will her return mean for Tigh's relationship with Caprica Six? And the unborn child?]
1/17/09: The finale is three hours (episodes) long, so that's nine one hour stories and then one three-hour story in Season 4.5. It's unclear at this time if the final three hours will be shown all at once or broken up. From RDM & DE Press Conference
1/17/09: In a secondary storage bay, Baltar and Roslin talk. Apparently, Gaeta has done something which surprises Roslin. Baltar counters that he had divided loyalties back on New Caprica as well. He adds that they both made poor choices in their presidential aides-de-camp. From SciFi Channel [More confirmation of Gaeta's choosing to side the Zarek in the fleet's internal conflict. Question is why Roslin and Baltar are meeting in such an obscure place. Is Baltar playing both sides?]
1/17/09: Kara climbs out of her Viper as Lee, Roslin, Adama and Tyrol watch an Eight climb out of a Raptor. Roslin sounds stunned. From SciFi Channel [First guess is that the Eight is Boomer, which would explain Tyrol's interest. The scene cuts away to only audio as Roslin sounds stunned, so someone/something else could have been in the back of the Raptor.]
1/17/09: Ellen Tigh appears in seven of the last nine episodes. From Los Angeles Times [Looks as though the reveal of Ellen as the Final Cylon in Episode 411 is just the beginning of that storyline.]
1/15/09: Adama's tailspin goes so far that Lee has to step into commanding the fleet. From TV Guide [So he takes a back seat to Roslin on the civilian side, but apparently gets a temporary promotion on the military side. So perennial whiner Lee gets to be both acting President and acting Commander in the final season?]
1/15/09: A frak chart was part of the scrapbook given out during the series finale. Of note are another man for Starbuck (the piano player? [1/16/09 - UPDATE: Nope, it's Zak Adama and not the piano player even though we're sure she'll end up in the same position with the mysterious musician.]), Tyrol and Tory, Gaeta and Caprica Six, Boomer and Helo. Also Cally and Hot Dog are shown. From BSG Scrapbook [So maybe Nicolas was Hot Dog's? The Boomer-Helo involvement could have gone back to the miniseries or is new due to his apparent infatuation with all Eights. The interesting one is Gaeta and Caprica Six, which might have happened back on New Caprica since she is currently pregnant with Tigh's child... although there's time for her to lose the baby and hook up with Gaeta.]
1/14/09: The Final Five "pre-date almost everyone" and are "basically responsible for the state of things - on both sides - the Colonial Fleet and the Cylon world." The identity of the Final Five was held back "in part because the writers were arguing who they should be. Honestly." The fifth, like the other four, didn't know he/she was a Cylon. "All skinjobs, including the Final Five, are the manifestation of the bridge between human and Cylon/machine on much more than just a physical level, if that makes sense." From Newsarama [If they didn't know who the five would be, things couldn't have been planned out too much. And there was another "hint" that the Last Supper promo pic clues you in.]
1/14/09: Caprica Six's story gets wrapped up and "definitely goes through the some emotional upheaval." Inner Six returns and is "playing an integral role." From Crave Online
1/14/09: Though it seems more like speculation by the actress since she doesn't indicate whether it actually became a storyline, Rekha Sharma said, "the biggest question about Tory on set was about whether or not the truth about what she did to Cally would ever be revealed, and if so, what would be the consequences? A little scary to ponder that one ..." From Los Angeles Times
1/13/09: The Episode 411 (production #413) shooting guide lists Ellen Tigh as appearing. That seems to lend more credance to her being the final Cylon [or Tigh has gotten drunk and is either having a flashback or one of his visions]. Also of note is that her and Saul Tigh's stunt doubles are listed. From BSG Props Auction Website [Thanks to Werthead for sending the link our way.]
1/13/09: In the writer's commentary for "The Face of the Enemy" Webisode 10, Jane Espenson mentioned that Gaeta ended his relationship with Hoshi at the end of the webisodes. However, the original plan was for Gaeta and Narcho to be involved (until the actor proved unavailable for the webisodes) and that would have continued into season 4.5. Now, since the webisodes were filmed after season 4.5 was completed, that seems to imply that Narcho might be involved in Gaeta's storyline in Season 4.5 [or we could just be reading too much into what she said]. From SciFi.com Webisode 10 Writer's Commentary
1/10/09: Updated Speculation from TPR
1/4/08: After finding a desolate Earth, Roslin has apparently lost her faith in the scriptures and can be seen burning pages from the Book of Pythia in a scene from a new promo. From SciFi Channel
1/4/08: Another promo clip shows more of a scene already released (see our 12/7/08 post below). Adama wants to know if Tigh was programmed to be his friend. Tigh grabs the gun, stands up and points it at Adama. Adama presses head against the pistol barrel and yells at Tigh to "Do it!" From SciFi Channel
1/4/09: Another Kara-centric clip at SciFi Channel's "You Will Know The Truth" site: Kara is sitting in the pilots' quarters reading a book when an evacuation announcement is made due to a fire. Kara goes into the corridor and finds Narcho. He's very short with her in telling her to evacuate the area and that he's in charge. As he walks off, Kara wants to know when pilots got put in charge of damage control. She grabs him to stop him and he turns on her and tells her to get her hands off of him and adds that no one "even knows what [she is] anymore." He walks off. She stands there for a moment before going back down the hallway following a few other crewmembers. From SciFi Channel
1/4/09: In Adama's arc, "he does break down, he goes to the bottom of the pit and just squirms around in there and it’s really difficult for him to carry on. From Edward James Olmos Interview
1/3/09: Pulling together clues from various promos, the clues on Scifi.com and bits from the webisodes, it appears that Gaeta likely helps the anti-Cylon faction that Zarek is a part of. Baltar is also involved somehow, but as things progress, he gets cold feet.
1/3/09: New promo: Among shots of everyone looking despondent on ruins of Earth, Tyrol touches a wall. There is a glimpse of Tyrol wearing glasses inspecting a piece of fruit just before a flash goes off. Tyrol is thrown back to the ground by the flash of memory. From SciFi Channel [Tyrol's flash was likely back to his previous life on Earth before it was destroyed.]
1/3/09: New promo: Tyrol walks on the beach. Dee sits in the co-pilot's seat of a Raptor as Helo looks over at her from the pilot's seat. Adama, Roslin and Lee are onboard the Raptor. Roslin and Baltar are in a baseship's CIC. Romo Lampkin, looking very unkempt, is being escorted down a corridor under armed Marine guard. Adama holds a gun to his temple. Kara yells, "What am I?" as she stands next to some burned out debris. From SciFi Channel
12/7/08: In a sneak peek, Adama, Lee and Zarek are on Colonial One. Zarek and Adama do all the talking. Adama tells Zarek that Roslin is president. Zarek points out that Roslin has been holed up under care on Galactica since her prophecy about Earth turned out to be a disappointment. Adama says that they are done and Lee leaves the room. Zarek hints there could be opposition. Adama replies that he now knows who to blame if something does happen. Zarek says that he's not hard to find since he's on Colonial One running the government. From SciFi Channel
12/7/08: In a sneak peek, Adama pulls a pistol and bottle of alcohol out of a locker. Tigh comes in and Adama says that it's time that they have that talk. Tigh fingers the drink poured for him, but doesn't drink it. He tells Adama that he's really sorry for not telling him when he first found out. Adama is clearly angry, calls him 'Cylon' and tells him to shut up. From SciFi Channel
11/30/08: SciFi Channel has put up a "You Will Know The Truth" site with daily clues about the identity of the Final Cylon and other "mysteries" leading up to the January 16th premier. So far, the Hybrid's quote about the Fifth Cylon seen in the Razor extended cut, President Lee dropping a muted-out hint about the Fifth and audio of Kara and Leoben have appeared. From SciFi Channel [This could possibly be interpreted as supporting Aaron Douglas' spoiler that indicated the Final Cylon would be revealed at least to the audience in episode 411. Also the audio of Kara and Leoben matches with a shot of Kara in a forest seen in the recent promos.]
11/23/08: The Canadian Space Channel aired a promo which features more footage from Earth including ruins and clues that the newly awakened Cylons might have remember something. Other clips hint at a violent split between pro-Cylon humans and anti-Cylon humans with Vice-President Zarek spearheading it. Gaeta was apparently in on the initial move, but is having second thoughts since he considers it murder. There are scenes of Caprica Six, Athena and Anders locked up together. Athena thinks they are going to be killed, while Caprica still holds out hope. One other shot shots a bound and blindfolded Adama standing in an airlock (or a Viper tube) with a note pinned to his chest. From Space [Similar footage aired in a SciFi Channel promo]
11/23/08: Speaking at the Autism Speaks benefit, Mary McDonnell believes that after having seen the ending of the series, rewatching the series from the beginning "will be even better." From TV Guide
11/12/08: Season 4.5 will be prefaced by BSG: Essential Elements, a half-hour special set to air on Sunday, January 11, 2009 at 11PM (10PM Central) on SciFi. From The Futan Critic
11/3/08: Lee and Kara's relationship "will not be entirely resolved until the end of the series." From Michael Taylor Interview [Boomer, not Athena.]
11/3/08: "There is indeed more Boomer to come when BSG returns next January. She plays a significant role in the final run of episodes." From Michael Taylor Interview [Boomer, not Athena.]
11/3/08: "The Old Cylons will rise again." From Michael Taylor Interview [He's vague enough that this could be a spoiler for season 4 or "The Plan" or stating the obvious concerning "Caprica." You decide.]


Season 4.5 Final Cylon Spoilers
2/8/09: Ellen says, "I'd do it all again." Ellen awakens in a resurrection tub, alone. Anders, all bandaged up, tells Kara, "Listen to me. A wonderful thing has happened. You have to get the others. Several rapid images: Temple of Five; Anders and Connor [That's purely a guess since we couldn't make out much detail.]; Ellen escorted down a hall by a Centurion; A Raptor [?]. Tyrol looking at something [Likely that new area already glimpsed pics from NBC's photo bank, which is apparently down in the engine room.]; Adama looking at something [Likely part of the preview scene where Adama notices a crack in the bulkhead in his quarters.]; a POV shot of Kara [It looks like it's from Anders' perspective from a bed in sickbay.]; Anders says, "I remember everything... Earth. Why we're here. Everything." From Space (Canadian) Promo for Episode 415 [Looks like we get some answers about the Final Five. Ellen is on a Cylon ship, but there's an absence of humanoid models, so again we think this is related to that splinter faction of Centurions that was with the First Hybrid. They were referred to as Guardians, but once the First Hybrid was dead, they didn't seem to have anything to guard. However, it's possible that guarding the Final Five might have been their true duty.]
1/30/09: When she returns, Ellen does lots of "walking and talking" and apparently has a "tremendous amount of dialogue." From Ron Moore/Kate Vernon Interview [We're guessing that the tremendous amount of dialogue means that Ellen has some major exposition (hopefully, explanation) when she first returns.]
1/23/09: The creditibility (and thus his spoilers) of the SciFi Channel Forums poster has been called into question. Though we did read through some of the more recent threads that appeared to be on the "up and up," we had neither the time nor inclination to go back over his entire posting history. As a result, we welcome evidence that his most recent spoilers that we posted actually came from other sources. In the meantime, we're committed to not revising anything we post so we're stuck with his 'spoilers' for the next four episodes even if we end up wearing a little egg on our faces. [From TPR]
1/20/09: More spoilers for the next four episodes from the poster who indicated that Ellen was the Fifth: The Final Five aren't "bad," just negligent and Baltar knew that Ellen was a Cylon since the blood tests. Speaking of Ellen, she apparently returns in episode 413. From SciFi Channel Forums
1/19/09: Ron Moore had this to say about the Final Five, "At this point, I think that you've seen a lot of how these arcs will play themsevles out, but I can tell you that there are more answers ahead for the Final Five particularly in terms of understanding exactly their responsibilities for the events we've seen transpire." From MediaBlvd [Note that he said 'five' and not 'four', so Ellen is in that mix.]
1/18/09: When asked will we "come to know, in this next set of episodes, who knew that Ellen was a Cylon, and that will play out in what’s coming?" Ron Moore simply answered, "yes." From Chicago Tribune [We can't help but think that Cavil has known more about the Final Five than he let on. The question is whether anyone else did too.]
1/18/09: When Kate Vernon was asked about whether there would be "fireworks" when Ellen and Tigh were reunited because Saul had poisoned her, Vernon answered that Ellen "is beyond that. She understands that that needed to happen at that time... There's a very happy reunion... only the way Ellen and Saul can express it." She also refers to her and Saul as being hybrids or "half and half." Apparently, how Ellen comes back has to do with her "job" or "destiny... in the bigger picture." She says that when Ellen returns, she was finally written in a "much broader, richer, deeper" way.

When Ellen returns, she is apparently enlightened a bit and might have a storyline that doesn't largely involve partying and/or sleeping around. What will her return mean for Tigh's relationship with Caprica Six? And the unborn child?]
1/17/09: Ellen Tigh appears in seven of the last nine episodes. From Los Angeles Times [Looks as though the reveal of Ellen as the Final Cylon in Episode 411 is just the beginning of that storyline.]
1/15/09: Ron Moore says that 'keys to the Cylons' mysterious past will be found amidst Earth's ruins.' From TV Guide [That pretty much confirms (again) what Aaron Douglas spoiled months ago.]
1/14/09: The Final Five "pre-date almost everyone" and are "basically responsible for the state of things - on both sides - the Colonial Fleet and the Cylon world." The identity of the Final Five was held back "in part because the writers were arguing who they should be. Honestly." The fifth, like the other four, didn't know he/she was a Cylon. "All skinjobs, including the Final Five, are the manifestation of the bridge between human and Cylon/machine on much more than just a physical level, if that makes sense.

That seems to lend more credance to her being the final Cylon [or Tigh has gotten drunk and is either having a flashback or one of his visions]. Also of note is that her and Saul Tigh's stunt doubles are listed. From BSG Props Auction Website [Thanks to Werthead for sending the link our way.]
1/10/09: Updated Speculation from TPR
1/10/09: The Final Cylon appears on the newly found Earth in Episode 411. From SciFi Channel Forums [We already knew the fifth would be revealed in that episode. It was hinted that it would be revealed to the audience and not necessarily the characters. Now with the appearance being on Earth, we wonder if the fifth appears to D'Anna who is left behind. And if the fifth appears on Earth, who does it appear to and does it end up with the fleet after it leaves? Also, the poster had been convinced that Ellen was the final Cylon although he seems to possibly backtrack in his latest posts.]
11/30/08: SciFi Channel has put up a "You Will Know The Truth" site with daily clues about the identity of the Final Cylon and other "mysteries" leading up to the January 16th premier. So far, the Hybrid's quote about the Fifth Cylon seen in the Razor extended cut and President Lee dropping a muted-out hint about the Fifth have appeared. From SciFi Channel [This could possibly be interpreted as supporting Aaron Douglas' spoiler that indicated the Final Cylon would be revealed at least to the audience in episode 411.]
9/24/08: According to Kristin, Tricia Helfer stated, "We will find out who the fifth Cylon is a lot earlier than the series finale-it comes up early in the last 10 episodes." From EOnline [This is confirmation of what Aaron Douglas long ago said that the fifth Cylon is revealed sooner rather than later in Season 4.5.]
7/16/08: Either a confirmation of Aaron Douglas' comments (or perhaps creative rehashing), another source claims that the showrunners intended for the Final Cylon to be revealed before the mid-season hiatus and that the revealed final Cylon is key to the direction of the second-half storylines. [This does fit with previous news that the showrunners had intended that both parts of the mid-season two-parter be aired before the hiatus.]
7/8/08: SciFi Channel's Mark Stern describes the reveal of the Final Cylon as "organic and satisfying. It won't be some day player from Season 1." From TV Guide
7/6/08: Aaron Douglas' comments during the writers' strike regarding the Final Cylon: "I was curious quite a bit but it was certainly a shock when I found out who it is. I never would have expected that person. It is revealed in the last thing we shot so if we don't come back, that will be the end of the show." From Aaron Douglas Interview [This seems to indicate that the Final Cylon is revealed in episode 411, which was the last filmed before the strike. Aaron's comments fit with the mid-season teaser that had Tigh addressing someone as the fifth Cylon.]
6/17/08: According to Ron Moore, the Final Five Cylons don't have model numbers. From EW.com Interview [So much for Tyrol being the twelfth Cylon as Aaron Douglas wanted. So whatever happen to the Sevens then?]
6/15/08: In an interview that took place after the airing of the death of Cally, Aaron Douglas had this to say about finding out about the Final Cylon: "I don't know if you'll know in the first ten, but somewhere around there." From MediaBlvd Magazine Interview [This is the first indication that we'd find out well before the closing episodes of the series.]
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 dwscifi.com 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 Macleans.ca 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: EW.com 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 SciFi.com 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 Post-Gazette.com
3/26/07: The fifth Cylon might or might not be revealed during the fourth season. From Ron Moore Interview with Post-Gazette.com
3/26/07: Anders, Tigh, Tory and Tyrol are full Cylons, but "different fundamentally." From Ron Moore Interview with Post-Gazette.com
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 Post-Gazette.com
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 @ SciFi.com 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

From http://www.zap2it.com/:

Just a short note about Caprica folks! There's loads of rumours going about but the latest is that the spin-off will concern:

"Set 50 years before "BSG," "Caprica" follows two rival families -- the Greystones and the Adamas -- as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies. Morales will portray the integrity-laden yet ruthless Joseph Adama, the father of William Adama, the future admiral of Battlestar Galactica."

There's also a brief casting spoiler. Paula Malcomson  has been hired to play a surgeon that works as a double agent! Esai Morales of Jericho fame has also been hired for a yet unknown role.

From Buddy TV:

Actors Drop Hints About BSG Season 4

There is a lot of news and spoilers from Comicon

Entertainment Weekly has a great picture of the actors, with hints about upcoming story.  Also, Ron Moore said in the print version that the last remaining Cylon sleeper is NOT in the picture, so we figure that just leaves Tom Zarek, Doc Cottle, and Dualla.

Mini-Movie to be made:                                                                                                                   7/4/2007: Starburst Magazine (issue 352) reported that A short movie detailing the story of the survivors on board the Battlestar Pegasus would be aired before the start of the Forth season. Eick tells Starburst that it'll take place before the events of 'Pegasus' and 'resurrection ship', detailing how the Pegasus survived after the destruction of the colonies. In addition some scenes will take place after the Death of Admiral Cane. We're told to look out for this November 2007 on the sci-fi channel. In addition it'll start to be sold on DVD the day after it's initial airing. Head over to: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=w6WkCt7TCQg to see a trailer but beware, it's got lots of spoilers and could potentially give away the identity of the fifth and final Cylon. More news on this when we get it!

Battlestar Galactica to end:                                                                                                             5/2/2007: http://www.battlestargalactica.com/ reported that Battlestar Galactica was entering it's final season. In a statement made to the press Ronald Moore and David Eick (the creative force behind the show) said that the show basically had to end for creative reasons and stated: "Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms." It's not good news, but you know what? I'd rather the show went out with a bang on good form than limping to the finish line. Perhaps it's for the best.

Season 5:
4/15/07: RDM reiterated that he would like a fifth season, but if the SciFi Channel won't commit to it, then the completed storylines will be crammed into the fourth season so that the show's arcs are not left unfinished (like Farscape). From Ron Moore Season Finale Q&A Podcast

5/19/07: Guest characters include: Lance Corporal Eduardo Moldonaldo, Paulla Schaffer, Derrick, Shaunt, Stig, Tracey and Marine. From Casting Calls [Considering the fleet is finite in size, there seems to be at least one new Marine per episode... BSG's equivalent to Red Shirts.]

New character in "Battlestar Galactica" season 4 premiere
By CassyHavens

May 6th, 2007

"Battlestar Galactica" returns in season four with a two-part episode entitled "Razor," and with it, comes a new female character.

For this episode only, we are introduced to Kendra Taggert, a Major from the now-destroyed Pegasus, who lost it when the war with the Cylons started, and is somewhat unhinged now. Her mother was a Quorum delegate who had to call in a few favors to get her aboard the Pegasus, with the expectation Kendra would command the fleet eventually. Another chick in her late 20’s, Kendra should fit in with the other female leads on “Galactica” now, not to mention the fact that she could relate to Lee Adama, given their similar circumstances.

The last season of “Galactica” drew some criticism from fans and critics alike for its unbalanced portrayal of its normally strong female characters. President Roslin’s cancer has relapsed and she had little to do during Gaius Baltar’s trial; Starbuck went more nuts and died only to return in the final moments of the season; and Roslin’s assistant, Tory, who has had nothing to do after rigging the presidential election during season 2, was revealed as a Cylon. With this new addition, are we being set up for more of the same? The Amazonian Cylon women also seemed shortchanged last season. I wouldn’t mind a little more asskicking.

We can also expect a few flashback scenes with a 20-something Admiral Adama, back when he was a rookie fighter pilot.

The two-part season premiere starts filming next week.

11/8/06: Caprica has not yet been picked up. The 1-hour pilot has not yet been greenlit by SciFi Channel, but the script is being reworked. Other scripts are also already done.
11/4/06: Though the dominant religion of then of the 12 colonies is polytheistic, Ron Moore says that there are monotheistic religions as well. "Some of the things that are happening in 'Caprica' would deal with the religious aspects, as well, and you'd start to see some of the beginnings of the monotheism that eventually is taken over by the Cylons." Ron Moore from an article from the Jewish Journal
11/1/06: Ronald Moore describes the series as a sci-fi soap opera, as opposed to the more action-adventure nature of Battlestar Galactica.
11/1/06: The series is set fifty years prior to Battlestar Galactica. It is centered on two families. One family owns the corporation that is responsible for the development of the Cylons. The second is Adama's father's family. Adama's father is a lawyer who grows to oppose the creation of the Cylons.

General Spoilers:
11/21/06: At a con, Michael Trucco (Anders) announced that he had signed as a regular. [This is likely referring to Season 4, but listed here until it can be confirmed.]
11/21/06: The second half of the season moves to Sundays at 10pm (Eastern)/9pm (Central) starting on January 21st. [Not Really a spoiler...]
11/21/06: The following characters appear in the season finale (unknown if they might be appearing only in flashback): Adama, Roslin, Lee, Tigh, Athena, Helo, Tyrol, Cally, Gaeta, Anders, Cottle, Racetrack and Seelix. [Revised to hopefully eliminate some confusion and needless speculation. This list comes from a particular day of shooting and as such can be used only to confirm some characters' survival. Just because Kara and Baltar are not listed does not mean that they have been killed off. More can be taken from the fact that Tigh, Anders, Gaeta and Racetrack are still around.]
11/19/06: Baltar gets put on trial and Lee becomes "heavily involved" in the trial.
10/20/06: The story arc in Episodes 10-12 result in Baltar and Hera's return to the fleet.
10/13/06: It will be revealed that the humanoid Cylons are able to "project" their environments for themselves and others. These "projections" are very real. Think holodeck. Baltar also picks up the skill, which he's been sort of been doing with his Inner Six all along. This ability adds to the suspicion that Baltar himself might be a Cylon. Tricia Helfer interview in Battlestar Magazine.
10/13/06: Baltar's Six and Caprica Three start out at odds. However, once Baltar is brought to the basestar, his Six starts to doubt him. She wants Caprica Three to torture him, which she does. Baltar's Six then comes in and works him through it. These interactions lead to the three-way relationship. Tricia Helfer interview in Battlestar Magazine.
10/13/06: The seven known models are supposedly wired to not talk about or think about the remaining five unseen models.
10/12/06: Updates on survival of supporting cast: Kat makes it through at least Ep. 309; Hot Dog, Cottle and Helo up to Ep. 313; Dee up to Ep. 314; Anders and Tyrol up to Ep. 315;
10/11/06: Kara and Tigh develop some sort of relationship. [As opposed to being odds with each as they have been since the miniseries.]
10/9/06: Tigh's eye was ripped out by a Five (Doral).

Episode 8: Unfinished Business; December 1, 2006
11/23/06: Shirtless in a field somewhere on New Caprica, Lee declares that he loves Kara. Next [Following day?], Sam tells Lee that he and Kara are getting married. Lee wishes him good luck and says he'll need it which is greeted by a "lemon" face from Kara. From Previews [This preview looks and its narration sounds like it's for an episode of Melrose Place. Just further lessens my interest in the Lee/Kara "saga." which has been reduced to a high school drama on more than one occasion.]
11/19/06: Apparently, the big rift between Lee and Kara was that after Kara and Lee finally slept together, she got up the next morning and told him that she was marrying Anders. This sent Lee on his eating binge and to settle for marrying Dee.

Pics available at the site
Lee and Kara are hammering on each other pretty good
as Helo, Athena, Gaeta and Racetrack look on.

Former personal trainer Helo and his fat-losing "client" Lee box.
[My guess is that they're going to beat each other into a mutual understanding
over their differing views on how to deal with the Cylon race.]

11/15/06: Adama schedules a boxing tournament on Galactica to let the crew relieve tensions between the former settlers of New Caprica and those who remained with the fleet during the Cylon occupation. TV Guide
11/7/06: Adama organizes a fighting tournament which turns into a method for grudges and old scores to be settled, including between Lee and Kara. [This explains how the flashbacks are framed in the episode. The episode is either going to be really good or fall flat if the fight matches don't click with the flashbacks.]
10/15/06: The present time storyline involves Fight Club-style boxing. [Bleh]
10/7/06: Baltar flashes back to a groundbreaking for a new City Hall on New Caprica with Gaeta by his side. [Um, I hope there is more to this scene other than filler.]
10/7/06: The cause of the deep rift between Lee and Kara (seen in Episode 220) will be revealed.

Episode 9: The Passage; December 8, 2006
11/18/06: Starvation threatens the Colonial fleet after the food-processing machines become contaminated. D'Anna and Baltar explore metaphysical matters. TV Guide
11/18/06: Selected Promo Pics from the episode
Baltar and his Six in that bed first seen in "Hero" (Ep 3.07).
[Guessing he's looking at Caprica Three,
who is further along her path to complete religious madness.]

10/21/06: The fleet's food supply becomes contaminated, which necessitates the immediate need to find a planet. A less than ideal planet is found, but reaching it proves difficult. [The planet has been referred to as Algae, but...]
10/21/06: Caprica Three questions her faith and becomes a heretic.
10/3/06: A couple of characters die. [More of the expendable pilots is my guess.]
10/3/06: Kat is featured in the episode.
10/3/06: Preliminary Episode Description: The fleet makes a "harrowing" passage on their voyage. [The premise sounds like the plot of an original series episode.]

Episode 10: The Eye of Jupiter; December 15, 2006
11/23/06: The Temple of Five is discovered on planet Algae, leading to a standoff between the Cylons and the Colonials over the Eye of Jupiter. The Cylons bring news about Sharon's baby. TV Guide
11/18/06: Selected Promo Pics from the episode

Anders and Barolay (Member of The Circle in "Collaborators")
are back along with Hilliard.
[Guessing Hilliard is another expendable Marine and that they are stuck on Algae.]

Caprica Three and Baltar's Six along with other Cylons.
[Looks like Leoben and Brother Cavil are back for this one]


Dee and Sgt. Fischer likely were suprised by Cylons.
[Either that or their tryst got interrupted by Lee's call and Dee is trying to explain... heh
Guessing Fischer is the top-dog expendable Marine for this episode.]


11/6/06: Tyrol finds the temple while surveying the planet. The temple is supposed to house the Eye of Jupiter, a clue to finding Earth. He sends a report back to Galactica. The Cylons intercept it and want a meeting with Adama and Roslin. They want the Eye in exchange for safe passage for the fleet. Adama says he'll nuke the planet if they try to take the eye. The Cylons also inform Helo and Athena that Hera is not well. Along with Adama, Helo and Athena plan a rescue attempt. Meanwhile, Caprica Three feels a "special bond" with Baltar and a growing belief that her destiny may not include the rest of the Cylons. [There's also supposedly some relationship stuff involving Lee and Kara and its affect on Anders and Dee. Bleh]
10/21/06: The stranded survey party finds an abandoned temple that seems to have a clue to the location of Earth. [Hope they explain how a temple with such an important bit of information ends up on a desolate and hard-to-reach planet.]
10/7/06: Anders appears, but don't know if it's only in flashback.
10/3/06: The fleet (Galactica) faces three basestars.
9/27/06: Preliminary Episode Synopsis: With supplies dwindling, Apollo, Cally and Tyrol survey a desolate planet. They are stranded when the Cylons attack the fleet.
9/6/06: Cliffhanger for mid-season hiatus

Episode 11: Rapture; January 21, 2007
10/21/06: Sharon and Helo get Hera back from the Cylons, possibly with Adama's direct help. [Either in an active or passive way, Adama would likely have to give his support to their plan because of his control of military assets.]
10/12/06: Baltar returns to the fleet, which sets up one of the storylines for the next episode, 312.
10/7/06: Hera is prominant to the episode.
9/27/06: Preliminary Episode Synopsis: Another clue in the search for Earth. Number Three openly declares herself the Cylon God, which leads to the termination of the entire Three series by the rest of the Cylons. [Guess that's one way to take care of Lucy Lawless being unavailable/unwilling to make subsequent appearances.]
9/6/06: Conclusion to mid-season cliffhanger

Episode 12: Taking a Break From All Your Worries; January 28, 2007
10/21/06: The [working]episode title is a reference to a line from the theme song of Cheers, a long running sitcom set in a Boston bar.
10/18/06: Tyrol finds the bar, whose existance is apparently not widely known.
10/18/06: Lee once again pines for Kara. [That might explain some of those marital issues he and Dee are having.]
10/18/06: A Galactica officer attacks Baltar in the brig, stabbing him in the neck with a pen. [Previews have shown Gaeta in the cell with Baltar, but his culpability is speculation at this point.] As a result, Baltar has a near-death experience in which his Inner Six tells him that he's human and thus cannot be resurrected if he dies.
10/7/06: Baltar is in the brig and Roslin visits him. The scene mirrors Baltar's visit to Roslin in Episode 301. Baltar later ends up nearly dying. His Inner Six tells him that he's not a Cylon, but a human. Baltar flashes back to discussions with Number Three concerning the hybrid and the five unknown humanoid models. He was there watching the Three model be terminated and he asked her if he was a Cylon.
10/7/06: Apparently, spending time in the bar helps Dee and Lee "reconnect."
10/3/06: Dee and Lee are still married, but having very public marital problems. [Guess not only is Dee still around, but she and Lee are still together.]
10/3/06: Tigh takes a stand to keep a bar from being closed.
9/27/06: Preliminary Episode Synopsis: Baltar is recaptured and ends up in the brig. He is now suspected of being a Cylon and he's not sure that they are wrong.

Episode 13: The Woman King; February 4, 2007
10/21/06: Doctor Robert's medical facility might actually be located on the lower decks of Galactica.
10/12/06: When Helo attempts to move a heavily sedated Hot Dog from Doctor Robert's care, Doctor Robert intervenes by ordering Marines in. Just then Tigh and Cottle arrive, and to Robert's surprise Tigh turns on him. Cottle admits to Helo that he finally did the an autopsy on Willie and found that he died of acute apoptosis, while Buckminster was suffocated. Dr. Robert says that he had only six months to live and he was saving medicine for those who could really use it. Cottle says that they had anemia. Robert then goes on a rant against Saggitarons and blames the genetic condition on their attitude. [Remember, Zarek is a Saggitaron and they have long been looked down upon by the other colonies.] Robert says that he was going to save Hot Dog because he was a pilot and unlike most Sagittarons, willing to defend humanity.
10/12/06: Doctor Robert and Tigh know each and are on friendly terms. Doctor Robert commands Marines, which would seem to indicate that he's in the military structure. Whether or not he's still XO of Galactica, Tigh appears to still be part of the military command since he gives orders to the Marines and Helo.
10/12/06: Dr. Robert had to suture a wound of some kind that Hera had.
9/27/06: Guest cast listed as: Sykes/Burrell, Willie, Portia King, Doctor Robert, Buckminster, Buckminster's Father, Scorpion.
9/27/06: Preliminary Episode Synopsis: Medical care in the fleet is dismal with shortages of medical supplies and practioners. After one such death, a mother is suspicious of the autoposy results. Helo investigates a particular ship's doctor, who seems to discriminate in his treatment of fellow Saggitarons. Helo's daughter Hera ends up under the doctor's care. Hot Dog also comes under the doctor's care. When Helo learns that he isn't doing well, he attempts to have him transferred to Doctor Cottle's care, but the doctor and guards stop him.

Episode 14: A Day in the Life; February 11, 2007
10/11/06: Adama and Caroline split after he received his first command. Lee indicates that she turned on him and Zak after that. Adama seems surprised, but Lee points out that Caroline was already pregnant with him when she and Adama got married. [This implies that they may not have married out of love and that she might have blamed Lee's conception for the unhappy marriage.]
10/11/06: Adama has several introspective sequences where he and his remembered version of Caroline discuss their marriage.
10/11/06: Private Jaffee looks to be little more than a walk-on part and not a pivotal guest character.
10/7/06: Flashbacks include what Lee's life was like after Papadama left.
10/3/06: Adama's reminiscing is triggered by the 29th anniversary of his marrying Caroline.
9/30/06: Caroline is Adama's ex-wife. Presumably, she's seen in flashback.
9/27/06: Guest cast listed as: Private Jaffee, Caroline

Episode 15: Dirty Hands; February 18, 2007
10/17/06: With the confusion over episode numbering, it can be hard to sort out what spoilers go with what episode. That said, it is now possible that this episode is the one that has a significant death (rather than the Kara-centric Maelstrom), especially in light of the episode title.
10/17/06: There are nine named guest characters for the episode. [Which tells us almost nothing.]


Episode 16: Maelstrom; February 25, 2007
11/21/06: The following characters appear in the season finale (unknown if they might be appearing only in flashback): Adama, Roslin, Lee, Tigh, Athena, Helo, Tyrol, Cally, Gaeta, Anders, Cottle, Racetrack and Seelix. [Revised to hopefully eliminate some confusion and needless speculation. This list comes from a particular day of shooting and as such can be used only to confirm some characters' survival. Just because Kara and Baltar are not listed does not mean that they have been killed off. Rather this list thins the supects for the "major death."]
11/19/06: In an interview with TV Guide, Katee Sackhoff said that we'd find out that she was a Cylon and see how she died. [Her comment was likely a joke as the interview was light-hearted, at least the Cylon part. The "major death" probably happens at the same time that Kara's Viper is damaged in a scene not yet leaked. Kat? Hot Dog?]
10/17/06: Updated the episode number.
10/13/06: Lee talks to his father just after the admiral has dressed down Kara. [The tone of the conversation seems to imply that Lee and Adama are on decent terms and Lee and Kara are back on speaking terms, at least.]
10/13/06: Adama states that he had to relieve Tigh of his position at some point previously.
10/13/06: Anders and Kara still carry on with each other, but he appears to be staying elsewhere in the fleet and their relationship seems to be more casual as opposed to married.
10/13/06: Kara and Anders talk about her mother, who was a Marine and abusive to Kara.
10/13/06: Ten years ago (eight years before the attacks) Kara had left home pledging never to join the military. Four years later when she returned to visit her mother, she had not only ended up in the military, but was an officer. Her mother was aware of her career, both the achievements and the troubles with discipline. Her mother (like Leoben) believed that Kara was special. They end up arguing before Socrata admits that she has cancer and is dying. Kara left anyway and never came back in spite of her mother's efforts to contact her again.
10/13/06: Kara has a dream where she is at her mother's bedside as she dies. Kara then realizes that the Leoben in her dream isn't really Leoben, but he talks just as metaphysically as the real Leoben as he states that now that she's seen death, she's free to fulfill her "destiny."
10/13/06: Kara apparently experiences these memories and dreams as the atmosphere vents from a crack in her cockpit canopy. She hears a transmission from Lee in his Viper and turns on her transponder.
10/11/06: Episode title added.
10/11/06: Another "Oracle" appears in this episode.
10/11/06: Kara's mother died of cancer about four years before the Cylon attack. One of the flashbacks shows that Kara rejected her mother's efforts to "reach out" to her in their last meeting.
10/7/06: Preliminary Episode Synopsis: Kara is on a mission and ends up unconscious. She has flashbacks in which her mother, Socrata, and Leoben appear. Lee is out in a Viper looking for her when she finally sends a distress signal so he can locate her. She and Anders are separated, but get together occasionally for some "no strings attached action." Kara uses Leoben posters for small arms target practice.
10/5/06: There is supposedly a "significant" death.

Episode 17: The Son Also Rises; March 4, 2007
11/5/06: According to David Eick, part 1 of a three-part season finale.
10/28/06: Features guest characters: Fallbrook, Hughes and Romo Lampkin [Likely subject to change]

Episode 18: Crossroads, Part 1; March 11, 2007
11/21/06: The following characters appear in the season finale (unknown if they might be appearing only in flashback): Adama, Roslin, Lee, Tigh, Athena, Helo, Tyrol, Cally, Gaeta, Anders, Cottle, Racetrack and Seelix. [Revised to hopefully eliminate some confusion and needless speculation. This list comes from a particular day of shooting and as such can be used only to confirm some characters' survival. Just because Kara and Baltar are not listed does not mean that they have been killed off. More can be taken from the fact that Tigh, Anders, Gaeta and Racetrack are still around.]
11/6/06: Features guest characters: Edie Cassidy and Reporters.
11/6/06: Added Episode Title
11/5/06: According to David Eick, part 2 of a three-part season finale.

Episode 19: Crossroads, Part 2; March 18, 2007
11/6/06: Added Episode Title
11/5/06: According to David Eick, part 3 of a three-part season finale.

Episode 20: ; Spring 2007
11/6/06: Looks like there is no Episode 20, so "Season 3.0" has ten epsiodes (11 hours) and "Season 3.5" has nine episodes (9 hours).
11/5/06: Thanks to all the production renumbering of episodes it's up for debate if the three part season finale actually starts with 317 and ends with 319 since 301 (Occupation/Precipice) was actually two episodes.
