Warning: Possible Spoilers for 4th Season of Battlestar Galactica
Entertainment Weekly has a new spread about everybody's favorite show of wandering vagabonds vainly in search of meaning to their sad, frustrating lives.... No, I'm not talking about "Celebrity Apprentive", I'm talking about "Battlestar Galactica".
Series Creator Ron Moore mentions some spoilers about who may or may not be the fabled "Fifth Cylon" (and if you don't watch the show or don't understand what that means...well, I'm sure there's a new episode of "American Idol" coming soon). Suffice to say, based on this photo, Moore has confirmed the person who should be in the empty #10 slot is the final Cylon. This tells us that none of the others in the photo we don't already know are Cylons is a Cylon.
So here's the scorecard as I see it:
The doctor we saw in the fertility clinic
Tory Foster (these from from last season's finale)
Are not Cylons (based on photo):
Who's Left Over (alive):
Cally (Chief's wife)
Dualla (Lee's ex-wife)
Gaeta (bridge officer and all-around pest)
Who's Left Over (dead or fate unknown):
Billy (dead for a couple of years)
Clearly there are a number of options, with of the live ones Doc Cottle being (to me) a clear choice for most shocking yet most logical, and Billy as the dead one who is the best dramatic choice. Really, almost any of the live ones would be decent choices (Dualla/"dual" natured character? Gaeta's always been sneaking around...)
I checked the IMDB cast list and while there are other cast members who could at least be possibilities they were so seldom used as to not be good dramatic choices.
What are your best predictions?
UPDATE: It just occured to me, if the 5th Cylon were still alive (in the fleet) wouldn't they have heard the Bob Dylan siren song and joined the other four? I hope it's not just a case of he/she couldn't get to the Galactica where Tyrol/Anders/Tigh/Tori were - that would be cheap (i.e. Zarek was stuck on his ship with no available transport).
That would rule out any of the rest of the live people in the fleet, leaving only the dead...
