Okay, I know I'm not the only one out there (Letah, I'm looking at you
But I neeeeed to talk about last night's episode.
Sooo is Starbuck one of the Final Five, or did she escape?
I don't think she's dead, and not in an "Nooooooo she can't be dead" ways, because she's kind of obnoxious. (Not as obnoxious as Kat though.
) I think they've been planning this from the beginning--Leoben's been talking about her special destiny since Season 1.
Anyway, Final Five evidence:
"You need to see what lies between life and death." Only Cylons can see this and talk about it because only they are resurrected. See: Deanna offing herself over and over.
Strongly established "human" background that is missing from the other Cylons. Cylons haven't been shown to grow, so are her memories real? Plus she's known the Adamas for a long time. Also, Leoben said in the interrogation in season 1 that they had switched spots from the last time in his "this has all happened before" talk.
Also, no one has been seeing members of the same race in their head. Baltar sees Six, Caprica sees Baltar. Human-Cylon. Interesting Imaginary Six and Imaginary Baltar are working to drive humans and Cylons apart. Imaginary Leoben (remember, she says you are not the real Leoben, and he says no he's a guide, similar to what Imaginary Six has told Baltar) seems (for now) to be trying to bring Humans and Cylons together.
The only other human-Cylon pairing is Helo/Athena, though neither of them sees the other. I wonder if this will change when Athena flips out and leaves the Fleet (season finale anyone?) or if Hera fundamentally changes their dynamic.
