Gaeta’s “Secret” Revealed in Webisode [SPOILER]

NUP_103282_0089No, I’m not talking about the fact that Gaeta is gay (or bisexual), which was revealed in an earlier webisode. In the new webisode (Part 9) of Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy, it’s finally revealed in a flashback what the jailed Baltar said to Gaeta that caused Gaeta to stab him with a pen: “I know what your Eight did.” This is a reference to the new background we’ve been shown about Gaeta’s time on New Caprica, where he gave names of people to save to an Eight he started sleeping with. Only she wasn’t saving them, she was having them killed. According to this Eight (who happens to be stranded on the lost Raptor with Gaeta), he knew what was really going on, but was simply fooling himself.

I mentioned in an update to a previous post that one of the producers claimed in a podcast that the Geata/Baltar stabbing scene was a remainder of a deleteted subplot (and I also added that they’ve been known to deceive us before). So either they were trying to throw us off track, or they decided to ret-con the scene so it didn’t remain as a “dangling subplot.” With one more webisode left, I have to wonder whether they’re doing this just to prove Baltar didn’t whisper that Gaeta was a Cylon, or whether they’re trying to make Geata such a strong red herring that we’ll be convinced, just to be shot down when the truth is revealed.
