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 hadn't considered Zarek much, but you might be right. It would be particularly interesting considering his terrorist past and considering the recent histories of at least three of the other final four.

that's part of why I like him -- he's sort of the dark reflection of Tigh. While Tigh was fighting for the Fleet all those years unknowing what he is; Zarek was fighting AGAINST the system. Both protecting a subsection of humanity, from his own point of view. Plus he formed the Circle, and he was on New Cap and would've been part of the resistance (we assume) if he hadn't told Baltar to stuff it and gotten thrown in jail (I'm ignoring the Sagitttaron dropped plot). We don't know if he did or didn't hear the music because he wasn't in Crossroads. He didn't make the Final Five tea party - but nobody else did either, and the other major living candidates were on the Galactica.

*shines her theory of the day*

And I shall complete that thought, in case you can't read my mind: *g*

Any other candidate present on the Galactica at the time of the Tea Party almost HAS to be a knowing Cylon, because otherwise it creates a strange question for why he or she wouldn't have gone and been awakened too. And almost every other (living) candidate was on Galactica.

The only exception to this is Roslin because she did sort of flinch and she was busy with other Cylon things.
