"Adama is a Cylon" (SPOILERS for the fifth Cylon)

So what did the note "Adama is a Cylon" mean? Just blowin' smoke? Is Ellen Tigh going to turn out to be Bill's long-lost sister?

i think they were just trying to cause a rift between the leaders of the fleet. i dont think it means anything.

Re: "Adama is a Cylon" (SPOILERS for the fifth Cylon)

You do know that Adama is a Cylon was said to Roslin by Leoben Conoy who is

1) a Fraking Cylon who pretty much said he put a bomb somewhere in the fleet then admited that it was a lie in the same episode.

2) a guy who loves to twist the truth into a Frakkin pretzel.

3) Enjoys screwing with people.

So I wouldn't believe him.

The way the show has gone it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Adama WAS a Cylon.

Have you ever even seen the show? Because it seems you have no clue what you are talking about.

That line from Leoben was just to stir shit, it was so obvious!

Agreed. While it could have been kind of interesting in a mind-screw way to have it be true, Ellen makes much more sense. It feels like the pieces of the puzzle are finally starting to slot into place.

I wasn't nearly so sure. Leoben lies, no question, but he seemed (at least until 'Notion') that he had a greater understanding of what was going on. While it was extremely unlikely, I was still 20% convinced that Adama was going to be revealed as the final Cylon.

As it stands, Ellen seems a very good choice to me and I'm interested to see how it will play out, considering that she's now dead.

Re: "Adama is a Cylon" (SPOILERS for the fifth Cylon)

I heard that Olmos had it put in his contract that Adama can't be a cylon.

As for what Leoben meant, Maybe Adama is a cylon in that everyone is a cylon because we'll find out that there's no difference between humans and cylons.

I wish it had turned out to be Lee who was one, thereby making this line true. But the books aren't quite closed on this yet.

Leoben mixes truths with lies. Also it was obvious he didn't know who any of the final 5 were when it came to season 3. But I wonder who gave Adama the "there are 12 Cylon Models note"? I know Moore address this and said it was likely Baltar but from what was actually screened in the Mini series it's still left open.

Yes. I've seen everything presently on DVD. I was just thinking that the way that show likes to throw us curves, and make everything so negative, having Adama, the leader of the human fleet, be the final Cylon makes perfect sense.

I'll find out for sure next year when season 4.5 comes to DVD. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. It's just a guess.

Leoben's a filthy fucking liar when it serves him.

When I first saw this I discounted it as him stirring the pot. That thought has only been confirmed since.

I still think they're all Cylons.
