I never thought the day would come, but tomorrow night finally marks the return of Battlestar Galactica
. Not counting the "Razor" TV movie, it's been a little over a year since a new episode of the Sci Fi Channel series has aired. That's a long enough wait to drive even the most patient fan to the edge of insanity. When we last left the crew of the Galactica, Anders, Tigh (Michael Hogan
), Tory, and Tyrol (Aaron Douglas
) discovered that they were actually Cylons. This reveal not only rocked the fanbase, but it completely changed the direction of the show. Nothing on Battlestar Galactica
will ever be the same.
Friday night at 10pm, the critically acclaimed series will kick off its fourth and final season with "He That Believeth in Me." To get fans pumped for the big return, we have some promo photos from the premiere and a video of the cast discussing the mystery of the final Cylon.
One of the coolest aspects of my job is that I occasionally get to see episodes before they air, which is why I can promise you that "He That Believeth in Me" is a phenomenal hour of television. This season of Battlestar Galactica
looks like it's really going to explore how the characters deal with the craziness that surrounds them. How will Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff
) react to being presumed dead? How will the newly revealed Cylons move on with their lives? You begin to see the characters grappling with these issues in the premiere.
The first photo finds Lee (Jamie Bamber
) and Kara celebrating her return. However, the celebration is bound to be short-lived when the crew starts wondering how she came back from the dead.
Gaius Baltar (James Callis
), who was freed at the end of the third season, ponders his future.
Will Chief Tyrol or Anders reveal their true Cylon natures to Boomer (Grace Park
)? Will she figure it out on her own?
This video features interviews with the cast where they talk about the possible identity of the final Cylon. Tricia Helfer
claims she already knows who it is, and Katee Sackhoff ensures us it can't be Admiral Adama (Edward James Olmos
), because he's just not pretty enough:
