Finally, at long last, there seems to be some clues to what fans can expect in the fourth and final season of the cult sci-fi series, Battlestar Galactica
. It may be 2008 but for avid followers of the show, it's still a very long wait for the start of the new season.
Fortunately, Entertainment Weekly
's two-page spread of an image from Battlestar Galactica
, along with creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore's generosity, offer us hints on a few important aspects of the eagerly-anticipated new season.
Moore was kind enough to give anxious Battlestar Galactica
fans something to ponder and chew on as they await the premiere of season 4. He did so, by providing little clues about the people listed in the photo featured in the magazine. Consider yourselves forewarned – read at your own risk for possible spoilers.
In the image, there is an empty space for whoever was being designated as the answer to clue number 10. This unoccupied space is meant to represent the last Cylon, whose identity has yet to be revealed.
's Adam V. Vary asked whether Moore was hinting that none of the people already at the table is that final Cylon. Moore merely responded: “You ferreted that out pretty slyly. I didn't really want to give that away.”
From that response, it seems very likely that the ultimate Cylon will not be Starbuck, Lee, Baltar, Roslin, Helo or Adama.
In other clues, Moore revealed that the extra Six designated as hint number two in the photo is another version of Six, who will rally other Cylons with a different agenda than the other toasters in the coming season. He further explained Caprica-Six's placement in the dead center of the spread by saying: "Baltar's Six has proclaimed that she is delivering the gospel of the [Cylons] one true god, so it seemed natural to place her at the center of the photo.”
In still other potential spoilers, Moore cited clue number six featuring Starbuck and Anders. The Battlestar Galactica
showrunner noted that only Anders is embracing Kara, whose body is somewhat turned away from him. Finally there are Helo and Sharon, who appear to be giving someone to their right the evil eye. While Moore refused to name who it was they were staring at, he did say that “the person they're looking at is definitely reacting.”
The full story on Moore's helpful hints to season 4 appears in Entertainment Weekly
's latest issue, with Matthew Fox gracing the cover.
