Since the blog began, I’ve posted analysis of many candidates for the fifth Cylon. My two current favourites are:
- The Virtual Being — ie. the Six in Baltar’s head and other such beings.
- Ellen Tigh — based on a possible backstory.
That’s because almost everybody else is eliminated by various clues we’ve received, such as The Last Supper and D’anna saying “Four are in your fleet” and backing the statement up with nukes. Without those eliminations, my main choice by a good margin was Baltar.
I built a summary of all the clues and counter clues about every character at Battlestar Wiki but frankly the clues are few and far between.
In spite of elimination, people still have their favourites. Fans keep pushing for Gaeta, Cottle, and Dualla in spite of a severe shortage of direct clues, and just about everybody gets their speculation. Have it out here!
