Amanda Greystone is recieving visions from "God"Amanada has a nightmare involving her and Zoe that ends with Zoe's red eyes and a brief sound of the Centurion's eye moving. The lighting in this shot has very bright contrast and not much colour besides a bluish tint and lighting. The background of this shot has 5 viable curtains. It bears a striking resemblance to D'anna/Number 3's vision of the opera house. Furthermore it is even more similar to the 'Ship of Lights' from the original series. It's very possible that RDM's version of the Ship of Lights is what turned out to be the re imagined idea of 'God.' Although it's up for interpretation. It's hard to discount the symbolism in this scene though.
'The One God' is Count Iblis from the original series 'War of the Gods' arc.Apparently Zoe had little in the way of computer programing abilities before joining 'The Soldiers of the One' or whatever the cult is called. Iblis is shown to have impressive powers. He is the one who gave Zoe the ability to program her avatar the way she did. It would make sense that at least some of the original series plotlines that werent used in the remake will show up in Caprica. If Iblis is behind it, it would also explain how the Cylons, which destroyed themselves and the 13th tribe thousands of years ago according to the remake, could show up again. Like in the original series, Iblis was behind that war.
The Soldiers of the One intended for Zoe to die on the train.Note that the head-mistress of the school says specfically 'We have great plans for Zoe' at the end of the episode. Have. Not had. They are well aware of her avatar-mind-clone-whatever-you-call it, and intened for it to be made all along. Unfortunately the real Zoe had to die so that Daniel would steal the MCP and put it into the proto-cylon and pave the way for creating the Cylons as a whole.
Zoe's parts will be recovered from the carwreck and used to make three Zoes.
Tamara is the Ur-Cylon, not Zoe.
Both Tamara and Zoe are red herrings: Serge is the Ur-Cylon.His supposed 'non-sentience' is either deliberate Obfuscating Stupidity or is simply programming he is capable of but has no desire to break (yet).
Socrata Thrace belonged to a strictly monogamist sect.A "monogamist sect" is mentioned in The Caprican's dating column. Explains why Kara didn't marry both Sam and Lee.
Various avatars will eventually be downloaded and somehow lose their human memories.Surely the various types of Cylon in BSG would not have behaved the way they did if they knew they were ALL directly descended from human consciousness.
Daniel will end up with a "Head Zoe"Eventually, Daniel's going to start having visions of Zoe talking to him. However, it wouln't be clear of Head Zoe is a a result of Daniel interacting with Zoe's avatar, a symptom of his own mental instability and guilt, or An "angel", like in "Galactica"
The series will end with the commissioning of GalacticaC'mon. It's currently 54 years before the Fall. Assuming good ratings, Caprica should last at least four years (although at the end of the day it depends on what the team has in mind). And how old is Galactica in the miniseries? 50. Do the math. Plus, it's a chance to show Galactica when she's nice and shiny.
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome will begin with the commissioning of GalacticaWe'll still get to see her all nice and shiny, before she and her crew kick the Cylons' candy asses.
Zoe-A will become the template for Number SixThere is a blonde version of Zoe-A. Remember "Rachael"? The Sixes are the only Cylon model known to vary widely in appearance and personality. Zoe-A has done things that parallel Number Six...
Zoe-A will become the template for Number ThreeThree has also proven to be an unorthodox Cylon model, and is also an earlier model than Six.
Shannon Adama is not William Adama's Mother...Evelyn (Joseph Adama's assistant) is. In BSG (Can't remember which episode) Adama mentions his mother's name is Evelyn. Consider your mind blown.
Several of the series characters will end up as templates for the Significant SevenRunning off the previous two "Zoe-A is X" speculation and the fact that Clarice is confirmed to be seeking a way of making humanity immortal through digital download (i.e., cylon resurrection), one might expect that Zoe and Tamara will be far from the only cylon prototypes to end up in humanoid bodies eventually. The question then becomes who will achieve this immortality and which model they would correspond with. Some possibilities (entirely speculative):
No character will truly end up as the Ur-Cylon
Tamara and/or Zoe will lead to the Cylon War, but as an unintended side-effect of their V-World exploits
Each and every one of the eventual Model 005 Cylons will have a virtual avatar of someone dead downloaded into them, in order to function at all. In addition, apotheosis will be an utter failure.It is likely that the same few avatars would be recycled millions of times (some of these may even be copies of Zoe and / or Tamara). The many, many copies of the people they were based on would not take kindly at being used as slaves, or the fact that they are not the originals and are indeed just mass-produced clones being sold to the highest bidder, thus rebelling and starting the First Cylon War. At least one of them will end up containing the consciousness of Clarice Willow, since her plan for a 'virtual heaven' probably means finding a way to convert her mind (not copy it) completely into avatar form and live forever in a special V-World, leaving her physical body behind, the method of which she would test on herself first. It will go wrong and instead of appearing in paradise, she will be instead somehow trapped in the body of a standard Model 005, quickly going insane and having to be destroyed. Everyone else attempting it would suffer the same fate, soon after which the 'project' would be abandoned.
The entire Caprica series was a plot by the WWE to take over Syfy.Think about it: Create a show that is completely different from its successful predecessor. 2) Stock it w/ an entire cast of unlikable characters. 3) Write a dull narrative w/ little action and maudlin drama for those characters. 4) Squander a strong lead-in and initially high ratings. 5) Totally ignore your fan base and 6) Continue to fail after your show is moved to another night. The only way that this would all be possible, is if someone behind the scenes was pulling strings.Somebody like the...WWE.
Other 'Messengers' Will Appear, Who Look Like Other Characters From The BSG / CTS 'Verse.In the light of cancellation, these are unlikely to be higher profile BSG characters such as Six or Starbuck, but the likelihood of someone resembling either one of the Final Five or one of their close associates seems fairly high. Within the CTS cast, the most likely characters (to me) to have 'divine/ascended'doppelgaengers are Tamara, Amanda, Clarice, Lacy, Barnabas, Daniel, Joseph and Evelyn/Emmannuelle.
Lacy Rand is Kara Thrace's grandmother.She conceived a child with Odin on Gemenon, who turns out to be Dreilide Thrace (since Socrata Thrace was said to have fought in the First Cylon War, she is too old to be a possibility).
Zoe-A and/or 'Messenger' Zoe will turn up in BSG: Blood & Chrome at some pointWe already know the Messengers are immortal, and unlike flesh and blood skin-jobs, Zoe A's final human-like form is completely mechanical and will not age. With the early cancellation of Caprica (just as things were getting interesting, darn!) it seems like only fair that the production team will try to salvage at least one or two characters for the next attempt at BSG 'verse series.
Starbuck is really Kara-AConsidering the BSG finale from another angle in the light of Caprica, it is interesting to speculate that the original Kara Thrace died in 'Maelstrom' and the 'angel' who leads the Fleet (and the Cylons) to their end are separate beings, the latter of whom having the original's memories, a similar personality and believing herself to be Kara Thrace, in the same way that Tamara-A believes herself to be Tammy Adams. What this being actually is, 'underneath', is another question — one suggestion being : the LOK Aurora, having wiped her own memory and taken human form (this coming from the BSG: Final Five spin-off comic book). Another assumption is that 'God' created her from nothing.
All this has happened before, all this will happen againCaprica does not take place in the past of the BSG universe, but in the far distant future- so far in the future that the cycle of history has started to repeat itself from the beginning. The Constant in all this? The sapient Centurions that departed in the last Basestar to search for a world of their own in the BSG finale. Corollary: The reason it's repeating near-identically is because The One God is micromanaging it to that purpose. Or more accurately, he's programmed it to micromanage itself- both humanity and the cylons are components of a living simulation running an exhaustive search. History, in other words, iterates forever with minor changes each time until a certain desired result is achieved. Like trying to crack a briefcase's combination lock by trying every possibility in sequence.
Caprica actually takes place 68 years before the Fall, not 58.Really, this is the only way to explain how Bill Adama was allowed anywhere near the cockpit of a Viper Mark II.
The 'missing' cylon from BSG is based on Daniel Graystone.They have the same name. It would also make sense that one of the people responsible for their creation would have a model based on him.
Most of the original avatars get deleted when V-World is taken offlineThe absence of characters like Zoe and Tamara from BSG is easily explainable when one considers that sooner or later the Colonies would have to pull the plug on V-World, as in literally shut down the servers, when the problem of Cylon infiltration became apparent. Without V-World, there could be no bouncing back and forth of consciousness between Cylon bodies and online backups. This could leave the Cylons feeling slightly desperate when Final Five finally arrive from Earth with their Resurrection technology, which was even better than Zoe's avatar program. The reason the Models all resembled each other personality-wise was because a variation of the old avatar software was used to create duplicate personalities, just as the Models were duplicate bodies. Since the humanoid Cylons of Earth had long since taken to biologically procreating, they might have had the technology to transfer minds, but not to assemble them from stray data. Since by that point they were working off the existing Centurion A.I.'s, rather than creating virtual copies of what was probably the now-defunct Soldiers of the One, they had more uniformity and less variety. At least until some had lived/resurrected enough to become more individualized.
Zoe was always a CylonZoe is basically a Chocolate Baby, in that she really doesn't resemble either of her parents. A Messenger took interest in her at an early age. She was by far the greatest computer programmer in the Twelve Colonies, something that seems to stem from her Messenger's guidance rather than having attracted it. "God" may have intervened to cause Amanda to give birth to an organic Cylon, specifically to set the cycle in motion. After 2,000 years since the settlement of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, the humans had failed to recreate Cylon technology. So "God" sends Zoe as the daughter of promising scientist-industrialist Daniel Graystone, who frequently "borrows" ideas from his daughter, who is herself working on designing artificial intelligence under the guidance of her Messenger. This might account for how Zoe was able to share experiences from the real world with her avatar in V-World - a variation of Cylon projection.
