BSG 320 - Crossroads, Part II (SPOILERS)
« on: March 06, 2007, 12:02:55 AM »
The Season 3 finale of BSG has apparently been viewed by several people out on the Internet, thanks to a press pack of the final three episodes that has been doing the rounds. Several things need to be born in mind:

1) The revelations could be 100% BS, or foilers with some truth mixed in amongst the BS. They could also be 100% true. A couple of official sources do back up some of the stuff.

2) I'm putting this stuff in spoiler tags. It's colossal stuff. Even those who normally want to be spoiled may want to watch this episode (which only airs in three weeks' time) fresh. Remember when Adama got shot? This stuff is orders of magnitude beyond that :nervous:

Okay, there are four major storylines it seems in the finale:

The Trial
[spoiler]Lee gets Baltar off in the trial. Baltar is found innocent of conspiring with the Cylons to destroy humanity, both before and on New Caprica,and is allowed to go free amongst the fleet. Apparently Adama does something monumentally stupid which apparently hands Lee victory on a plate. This was the least-detailed of the spoilers though. Apparently Dee and Lee are going through major problems again and may have split up permanantly.[/spoiler]

WTF? Storyline #1
[spoiler]Roslin has an interesting 'shared dream' experience with Six and Baltar, which involves her and Athena chasing Hera through the Opera House on Kobol, but Hera is instead grabbed and taken through a doorway by Six and Baltar. Near the end of the episode they meet in real life and realise it was more than a dream. Baltar and Six also see the Final Five standing in the Opera House. But we don't see their faces. This spoiler is the only one supported by photographic evidence: one of the publicity shots shows a dressed-up Roslin in the Opera House.[/spoiler]

WTF? Storyline #2 (This is the Big One)
[spoiler]Throughout the final two episodes Tigh keeps hearing a funny tune playing in his head. Adama thinks the stress is getting to him. At the same time Tyrol also starts hearing the tune, which has an effect on him similar to what happened to him when he found the Temple of the Five on the Algae Planet (see where this is going)? Tyrol and Tigh are drawn to a room somewhere on Galactica where they are joined by Anders and Roslin's aide, Tory (the two of whom have been having an affair following Starbuck's death!). With a sudden shock they realise that they are four of the Final Five. "And always have been." Tyrol accepts it but Tigh vehemently fights against it. Apparently Tigh asks the obvious question, namely how the hell can he be a Cylon if he was born before the Cylons were created in the first place? There is no answer. According to the spoiler these four people think they are Cylons, but that doesn't mean they are: the fact that the Final Five's faces remain hidden in the above shot in the Opera House (which happens just after this sequence) actually suggests another game is afoot.[/spoiler]

WTF? Storyline #3
[spoiler]Lee is on CAP in his Viper and a Viper or Raptor (the spoiler is unclear) appears out of nowhere ahead of him. The pilot of the other ship is Starbuck. She tells him that she has found Earth and she is going to lead the fleet there. Fade out. This sounds pretty plausible, although I'm not sure how Lee goes from Power Lawyer back to CAG in the space of ten minutes.[/spoiler]

And remember: take this all with a grain of salt the size of a basestar. Some of it is plausible but some of it is a bit OTT.

Crossroads, not Crossover.
Which side are we on?  We\'re on the side of the demons.  We\'re evil men in the Gardens of Paradise sent by the forces of Death to spread devastation and destruction wherever we go. I\'m surprised you didn\'t know that.

To be honest I'm not surprised regarding the first one. Conspiracy requires intent...

I bet all characters are actually in the operahouse watching a play - BSG is nothing but the way the audience reflects the play's story on to their own personal lives...

To quote someone who's working on the show:

"Nobody knows who the final five are, not even the actors..."

Also: The story for the last 2 eps is barely even known by those who are working on the series.

1. Saying you don't know something might be an attempt to stop people begging for answers.
2. Giving away the climax of the series will be a costly affair... no doubt those involved are contractually held to secrecy.
3. Why would one spoil the excitement?

If spoiler #2 is accurate (specifically the one character), it throws open the field for the final candidate. Everyone is eligible.

Unless, of course, it's a huge fake-out.

Sources backing up the above spoilers:

[spoiler]
Aaron Douglas and Tricia Helfer have both said that some of the Final Five are revealed in the season finale. Aaron knowing obviously makes sense if he's one of them.

This reviewer confirms that the final three episodes are doing the rounds (he's refusing to watch them due to temp sound effects and unfinished CGI though).

The Patriot Resource (I know, they've been wrong before, but they've also been right before) have also picked up on exactly the same rumours. However, they say that it's Roslin, not Adama, who makes the mistake that leads to Baltar's release. They also claim that there's a fifth storyline, in which Cally becomes convinced there may be another Cylon on board and she confronts Athena about it, who agrees to help her find and expose them.

The Chicago Tribune has an article which backs up some of the above.

Bear McCreary, the BSG composer, has noted that in the last two episodes he's done something very different involving music which ties directly into the finale storyline.

There's also one photograph of Roslin in the Opera House and another of Baltar, Six and Hera there which at least hints that those spoilers may be accurate.[/spoiler]

They finished filming the BSG Season 3 finale in early December and finished editing it a few weeks back. With the series going through what can only be charitably be called a late-season rough patch, it is quite likely that the SFC would be sending out review copies of the final three episodes for people to spread the word how awesome they are and get them watching again.

That's the point of doing it. Everyone will assume that:

[spoiler]Starbuck[/spoiler]

Is the other member of the Final Five but that's not necessarily the case. However:

[spoiler]Tigh being a Cylon very obviously explains why Three apologises to the Final Five in Rapture. It would be for ripping out his eye.[/spoiler]

Cylons have been killing each other without apologizing...

Then again: why would she apologize to someone to whom she has done no harm [she did it to the replica]?

I stick to my assumption that she's apologizing to herself - or better: to the human  after which she was modeled. :D

She could also...

[spoiler]...be apologizing to Anders, whom she nearly shot in Downloaded.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]I've always thought Anders was a Cylon...it just fits. We don't know enough about him, and while he's anti-Cylon, his past is rather vague and not really shown.[/spoiler]

Oh yeah. I'm guessing that Three's reverence towards the Final Five led to the apology, not that she's actually bothered about

[spoiler]nearly shooting/de-eyeing anyone[/spoiler]

We also don't know the rules of the Final Five. A favourite theory is that the Five are unique and have no clones. Or the Seven were given a fleet to chase the Galactica and all knowledge of the Five were removed from them, and all the clones of the Five are back on the Cylon homeworld.

Well, actually, I was thinking that if

[spoiler] Tigh could be a Cylon, Adama's back in the mix. Hell, Lee, Carolanne, everything gets called into question. However, I still think he's human. If Caprica ever gets picked up, and it's about the Adamy 'dynasty', that implies no Adama could be a Cylon.

I would love for Gaeta to be the 5th Cylon - but in charge of all the others. Number 1, if you will.[/spoiler]
