The Question - who is the last Cylon?

I pose this question to you all - who do you think the last Cylon will be revealed as?


Most of you will probably say it's Baltar... Still some of you may think that it's going to be Starbuck... And the truly daring will suggest that it's Admiral Adama, himself...


You would, of course, be wrong. The true final Cylon is obviously Billy... right/>


The evidence is overwhelming.


First of all, no one in BSG actually ever dies. They are all resurrected as Cylons or some other miraculous never-to-be-explained phenomenon.


Second of all Dee (Lt. Dewalla) is all alone now that Lee is off to, well, whatever he's off to do...


See, overwhelming evidence. ;-)


Where do you stand?

It's Laura; by your rationale, when she dies of cancer, she will be resurrected and realize that it was all for nothing. Besides, if you notice in all the BSG pics on the official site, all the cylons are congregating around each other. Why else would Laura have shared the dream about Herra in the hall with Caprica Six? Because she is the last one.

I think it's Laura too. Baltar is too obvious to be the one. I think he's nothing more than the pawn he's been from the beginning. I was 99% sure it was her in the showdown in the last episode when it pits her against Starbuck. I just got that feeling that she's gotta be the one missing.

No, no. It's gotta be Chief Tyrell's wife. Who has disappeared from the show thus i don't remember her name.
They've got a child and the show has been making (was making?) a big deal about Human/Cylon munchkins. They wouldn't waste the opportunity of Tyrell's child to spout some half-formed metaphysics at us if it were a half-human hybrid. Thus, it must be our first glimpse of Cylon reproduction beyond resurrection.
Not nearly as steamy as I was expecting either.

it cannot be baltar. it was revealed that he is not a cylon after all. the easy money would be on laura, but that seems to obvious.

OK. The list is coming together... We have:
1. Laura2. Starbuck3. Baltar (some debate here)4. Billy5. Cally
A good list. Note that neither of the Adamas are on it... Oooo - could it be Lee's dead brother? Now that would be saucy.

I don't think that it's Laura - unless Cylons can now get cancer and need human-cylon baby blood to cure them that is...
I agree that it could be the Chief's wife - they made such a huge fuss about the first hybrid child, but nothing is being said about this child - not even really anything from the Chief himself.
But in the end, I will take one of the obvious characters and choose Starbuck - wouldn't that suck for Adama who thinks of her as a daughter. hehe.

I am confused though, if one of the final five dies, how would they download...are there final five body copies awaiting the download? if there are, wouldn't the current 7 models know who they were then? Let's say Laura is a cylon and dies, would she then download into another of her bodies or a different model all together? With that issue, could it not be Ty's wife? she's dead and it could be taking time to grow her a body to download into. She also had a way of getting what she wanted when she wanted it...she reminds me of a less intelligent Six model. That could also be why Billy hasn't been back. But really, wouldn't one of at least Simon know about the new models just in case they died at some point?

(Spoiler, don't read if you haven't watched all seasons so far)
I have to say that I am torn between Starbuck and Adama, since when #3 was in the temple she saw the faces of the 5 and recognized the last one, meaning she had seen him/her somewhere before and apologized, therefore it could be Adama - they met on the ship or Starbuck, I cant really remember if they met on Caprica or not .On the other hand how can it be Starbuck when they had her on Caprica in the hospital doing experiments with her and took her ovary out. Also she was kept captive by the cylon on New Caprica.On the matter of chief's wife, she was also on the execution list on New Caprica, so I wonder why would they want to execute her.Unless in both cases they didn't know that was a cylon, suggested by #3's surprise by the 5th person.However it is confusing to me, when they say cylons will know if they see another cylon how come they wont recognize the 5.

Click to reveal spoilers.

I don't think its any of the Adamas because Lee is the admiral's son so why would the cylons be making such a fuss over cylon/human children if they have been around for 30 years?? It won't be Starbuck or Baltar because that would be too obvious. I think its Laura Roslin because of all the dreams she has had in the series and because in Six of One it seemed she was trying to lead the fleet away from the way to Earth through Starbuck. It could also be Billy.......I got a question too, if one of the five dies do they get downloaded into another body because the cylons seem to act like they want nothing to do with them and that they are separate?

Who says that the five can download? They are "special" cylons, originals - maybe they can't download. All of the last 4 have been injured badly at some point during the series, so maybe they aren't the same. I thought the return flash from Anders eye was very sinister - methinks he'll have a big part to play. We're definitely being led in the direction of Laura this season - but why? Why is Baltar seeing himself now? How about Helo? A biggish role that doesn't really do much now, since his adventures on the planet. I like Billy, but to bring him back now would be a cop out. He's been away for ages. Chief's wife - maybe - but why? How about the communications guy on the main deck (sorry, I'm dreadful at names!) - he's always there and there about. So many questions, so few delicious episodes to go! Yeeha!

I dunno I kinda wanna think its Laura but then why would she need cylon blood to cure cancer if she is a cylon then she can cure herself or not get sick in the first place because she has antibodies. I agree that it would be weird if they brought Billy back now, although I really liked him :)

I think it might be Ellen, Colonel Tigh's wife. Reason being, in Season 1 when she is brought back to Galactica she is tested by Baltar' s cylon tester. He tells them she tests as human, but his imagination woman asks him if that is what the test really showed and he said that he will never tell. So, my vote is on her being the last one.

wow. good memory. yeah, i'd forgotten about her - but that's an excellent choice.
except we think that whoever the final cylon is is currently on the fleet - no?

hello,I just recently got into this show and I noticed, whenever there is a cylon present, a slight whistle can be heard in the background. If I'm correct, its definitely between, Baltar, Roslin and Admiral Adama-(episode 4.4 whistle goes off right after roslin visits baltar and it cuts to Adama) I have been trying to weed it out to see who it corresponds with-Some other things I noticed: When Xena saw the final cylon, she apologizes, meaning that its someone of importance, someone that the cylons didn't know was running the show to their advantageAlso, the raider stops the attack when they realize some of the final five are on the galactica which clearly states they don't have a clue who the final five are
let me know what you guys think about my theory of the whistle

I have not noticed a whistle, but will try to listen next time I watch an episode.So I guess the theory about Chief's wife is no longer of importance.Also if you remember when they were interrogating the cylon that is obsessed with Starbuck, he said that Adama is a cylon what do u think about that?I don't think it is Ellen, because Tigh is a cylon and Ellen is also not on the ship right now, and the fifth cylon is. Therefore it is also not Starbuck, since she wasn't there.I kind of didn't like it how they revealed the permanent 4 cylons, it was too quickly and with not great plot line, I wish they had taken their time and revealed them one by one and not so obviously.

This is going to seem a bit bizarre but I've been boiling down some possibilities and one I've come up with is that with the heavy bits of our Greek mythology in the show, there has to be a significance to the fact that there are 12 gods and 12 cylons. So I tried to place each cylon as god, comparing physical or personal traits. 6 would be Aphrodite, the seductress. Chief Tyrol would be Hephaestus, god of the forge (he rebuilds shit all day), and so on and so forth. Not all of them matched by gender and some were kind of a stretch but RDM said he's already given tons of hints and that each Cylon has a very different personality. So all that said and done, I think that the last one will be Lee. Don't ask how he's Admiral's son cuz I can't possibly explain that bit but it was just a hunch, albeit a crazy one. Not to mention, his call sign is Apollo.
