More on Gaeta as the Final Cylon (a Second Update)

Ever since Felix Gaeta became my number one suspect as the last Cylon, I’ve been searching around the Web for evidence. There’s a hell of a lot out there, and it seems like more and more people (until recently, anyway) were becoming convinced he’s the one. There’s a really good case being made at the Galactica Brig, including some screencaps and a detailed review of Boomer shooting Adama.

On the other hand, a lot of people think it’s a red herring, and that they’ve been making it TOO obvious for it to be him (especially for a show that’s known for the unexpected), including all that singing a few episodes back. There has also been some mounting evidence in the past couple of episodes that it can’t be Gaeta, especially D’Anna stating that only four Cylons were in the fleet.

So, who could it be if it’s not Gaeta? Taking into account Ronald Moore’s statement that the final Cylon isn’t in the “Last Supper” picture, my second choice had been Dualla, but she’s barely been seen this season. Of course, that could be on purpose to keep her from being a suspect. But she was also in the fleet when D’Anna said there were only four.

A lot of people think it could be Tom Zarek, and I also believe he’s a likely candidate. But again, he was in the fleet when D’Anna made that statement.

If (and it’s completely possible) Ron Moore was lying about the Last Supper, and D’Anna was telling the truth, there’s really only two people it could be, because they were still on the basestar when she said it: Laura Roslin and Helo (well, technically, Hotdog was there, too, but c’mon!). But in order for it to be Roslin, D’Anna would have had to be LYING when she told Roslin she was just kidding about her being a Cylon. It WOULD be a good ruse for them to have revealed it so casually, then taken it back, but not really mean it. I mean, they even showed it in the episode preview.

But Helo is a very likely suspect, and now that we know that Caprica Six is pregnant with Tigh’s baby, it wouldn’t be impossible for him to be a Cylon based on the fact that he had a child with Athena. So, to recap: IF Ron Moore was lying and D’Anna was telling the truth, I’m thinking it’s probably Helo.

  1. I have a wacky theory that the fifth cylon is Starbuck’s Viper.

  2. I’ve heard other people suggest that also, but I hope to hell not, because that would be REALLY boring. By the way, Leesa, you’re the ONLY person I’ve ever known who actually got nerdier AFTER high school. 🙂

  3. I gave up keeping my Nerdity suppressed! ‘Sides, nerds in their environment have less inhibitions and so I’m learning something new all the time!
