John Fucking Hodgman.

Nice guy and all, but total miscast.

I think he's a fan of the show and was probably brought in to add some levity. I think he's awesome.

This episode made me sad that the show is almost over. I hope that it somehow segues into the Caprica show.

Lost model #7....Gaeta, anyone?

If it exists, it's supposed to be kind of artistic, yet fucked up, if Ellen is any guide. And we all know about his more musical side.

And I must admit that I really missed Ellen quite a bit, in hindsight. I was sad to see her die on New Caprica, actually, so it's good to see her again.

Lost model #7 "Daniel", as in "Daniel Greystone" of Caprica series, maybe?

Personality profile of "Daniel" seems similar to Starbuck's artistic leanings and hidden sensitivity...

On the other hand, Baltar also seems to be the "sensitive" and "insecure" type similar to what Ellen described...

My 1st theory: Starbuck is the 8th model Cylon version 2.0 of Daniel in female form, gathered from whatever DNA Ellen and the other Four had.

My 2nd theory (more farfetched): Starbuck and Baltar are genetic fraternal twins that share similar personality traits and connections with Cylons.

I also suspected Gaeta a long time ago... And I think he still might be connected to the Cylons, in reference to his last conversation scene with Baltar. (I actually thought Gaeta might have had a conversation with Baltar in his head like Six/Baltar.)

Another part of me thinks there's probably a cloaked resurrection ship orbiting Earth, which would also explain Starbuck's reappearance from the previous season.

So who knows? ... Gaeta might download and resurrect.

The way they have it, there's eight models, plus the Final Five.

Since Number 1 (Cavil) erased all memory of the five from the other models, it is also conceivable that he erased any evidence of Number 7 existing from their memories too.

It basically answers why we've always had Numbers 1-6 and then Number 8 (Boomer).

I was basically joking about Gaeta. I think him being #7 would be a very weak revelation; his ultimate fate was poetic in itself, and I don't imagine that it would be undone so abruptly.

Starbuck does seem to be the candidate, if #7 still exists in some form. That, of course, keeps open the big question as to what the "Cylon god" is supposed to be. I found it interesting that Ellen tersely stated that it was created by the Centurions, and that it seems to act independently of the other Cylons. Also, it might be a decent chuckle to note that the original Starbuck back in the late 1970s show was a man; perhaps when Ellen talked about how Cavil "contaminated the chromosomes" of Number 7, it's a sly reference to this.

I tend to think that the reveal about the nature of the Cylon god will answer about the origin of the Virtual Six too. Can I say that one of the biggest disappointments of the latter half of BSG is how Virtual Six just kind of disappeared and never came back? Of course, Baltar really hasn't had much of interest since he became a messenger of the Cylon god, at the behest of Virtual Six--yet another indicator that this amorphous being is involved.

Some interesting things ahead in the show, it seems.

I think it's lame for the producers to play the "Guess the cylon" game again after all the Final Five stuff. And hoping they agree with me, I'm thinking that maybe Daniel will be "reincarnated" with the birth of Saul & the Six's child, which could be the "miracle" Anders was yelling about right before the operation.

Well, that sucks that the baby died.

Not the strongest episode of late, but still fascinating just the same.

Only four episodes to go.

Some of you, I was going to say many of you won't like my most current theory or prediction.

But this mysterious, and final cylon
is Battlestar Galactica.

I could site obvious clues, hidden in plain (plane) sight over the last couple of episodes.

the creators never use the word only 12 or 13 or any number.


and if you noticed
the opening credits now read

"39,XXX survivors "

instead of "39,XXX human survivors"

since it has now been revealed that there are cylons mixed in with what we thought were only human survivors

I do remember listening to an interview with one of the writers awhile back
and the question was
there are only 5 final survivors?

his answer was something like,

it has been revealed that there are a final five.

he left out the word only.

This show certainly doesn't frakk around.

So, is Starbuck a child of a cylon? Perhaps she's a hybrid...

I have no idea how they are going to wrap all of this up in only three more episodes.

with only 3 episodes left

I am starting to think, all of this will not tie up as nicely as many of us were hoping it would.
