    Does no one remember that Baltar gave her the test back in season one and then hid the actual results. He swore that he would never tell.

    The more I think about it, the more I think you're right.

    I just can't believe that Ellen is the Fifth Cylon.

    Or Kara, for that matter.

    Maybe Kara is the 'first' cylon

    I keep thinking that the 4 in the fleet were "fleeing" and that's how they end up in the colonies. And that the 5th and the Cylon "God" are the same being. And when Starbuck stumbled on Earth, she woke him/she/it up and it start broadcasting the signals that drew the fleet to Earth.

    Did y'all not hear what Ellen said in Tigh's flashback? "We'll be reborn"

    That explains why Tigh didn't have hair 2,000 years ago, but he did when he first met Adama 40 years ago. And it leaves the door open for Ellen to come back from the dead.

    Keep going, I'm really buying into your theory here. It makes far more sense than the red herrings that Ron is throwing out at us.

    I'm seriously thinking that she's Iblis.

    Why not? They changed the gender of 'Starbuck' so why not Iblis as well?

    Wow, folks, I'll need to watch that again before making a judgement. However, if this episode is any indication, the rest of the season will be explosive and tragic.

    The ending was terrible considering how wonderfully sad the rest of the episode was.

    Ellen being the 5th Cylon in really boring and lame unless there is a 13th Cylon surprise waiting for us.

    Hmm, so Starbuck is the spawn of satan... Ellen is a Tigh Hooker-bot... We see Dee perish herself... Adama go hobo... Laura go psycho... The crew go loco... that's a lot o crap to digest.

    The Centurion robots they built? One of the heads was found beside the remains.
