Wee note  
So while I listen to my OH-SO-EXCITING recordings (and iTunes keeps wanting to import them - no thanks!), I've been working on my Shagathon fic a bit. Just kind of playing with the scenes.

And it really wants to turn in to the Really True Story of How Helo Ended up Mayor of Dogsville and Zarek was Nowhere to be Found.

Unfortunately this has nothing to do with my prompt. bah.

Also, Zarek=Final Cylon? Anybody taking odds on it? I'm thinking the odds are pretty good. He's my new Number One candidate (at least for today...) He sort of slips around the edges, and he's been around from the beginning, but I've noticed people often forget to put him on the list of candidates, probably because he wasn't around much in 3.5. I am now VERY suspicious of that absence. It's like Ron's waving a flag "look over here! Ooo, Kara could be the final cylon,what do yo think of that? Isn't it cool? But pay no attention to the Vice President over there; he's really not important at all." uh huh. And I keep thinking of that moment when Head!Six leans on Zarek and tells Baltar to pay attention to him...

I am NOT avoiding anything by randomly theorizing, what makes you think that? :)

(I really have to get off line, though-- I keep getting sucked in and distracted. Off I go to someplace without net access again...)

I think Ron knows he shot his wad with the GIANT SHOCKING SURPRISE of Tigh being a Cylon. No reveal is gonna top that. So the Final reveal isn't going to be a shock in that sense (hell, by 2009, Crashdown won't be a surprise to anyone in fandom). It's gonna have to be dramatic, but also make sense. And Zarek is one of the few that I think it will add resonance to his character and the series, where I don't think it'll add anything to have it be, say, Billy. Gaeta's also in much the same place as Zarek, though with AJ playing it up, he looks more like a red-herring every day.

I have days when I'm on the Dee or Kendra or Cain (my top three women picks) train, but the latter two don't really add anything to the series as a whole. For Dee I'm more conflicted, since then it might retroactively explain her attachment to Lee, which Ron knows was poorly grounded. It puts her in Anders' shoes as drawn to her particular object of shepherding (in this case Lee, or maybe even Bill), plus it would make Leoben right. But she wasn't on New Cap, she didn't hear the music, and she and Lee are apparently over, so I don't know how it would all fit together.

I wonder if the numbers aren't going to even out in the end. After all, the only Cylons I'm certain will survive to the end are Sharon and CapricaSix (not even Sam *sniff*). And that would have a nice unexpected tidiness if the numbers end up balanced. Well, that's how I would do it, anyway....

I know. *hush* Don't tell on me. *looks around nervously for the pitchforks* Maybe I should flock...

I like Billy and I wouldn't mind him coming back in something like a flashback, but making him the Final? Tory stole his slot, I think, and he ain't getting it back UNless Ron pulls something really spectacular out of his ass -and y'know, all things are possible ... *g*
