Edward James Olmos gave the fans one hell of a loaded statement at the Battlestar Galactica panel at the Toronto Fan Expo. Olmos revealed that BSG will get even darker than before, with maximum death and destruction. He also revealed who will be the star of the BSG TV movie he's directing, and dropped some hints about the final Cylon. Possible spoilers below.After leaving the crew on a burned-out, radiation-saturated wasteland, I didn't think it could get any lower for the last of the human race. But Olmos reassures us that the final half-season of BSG is going to be a teary-eyed bloodbath, telling fans it'll be:
"Emotionally, heartbreaking. I'm telling you this for a reason, because I don't want you guys to think you're going to go through this without getting yourself really twisted … it's brutal what happens to us. Not many of us make it."
Olmos also revealed some details about the BSG movie that he'll be directing. While we've reported this film will follow the Cylon point of view, one of the main characters is going to be Aaron Douglas, or Chief Tyrol (who was in attendance in at the BSG panel). The movie will spend some time focusing in on the Chief's story over the last few seasons. And finally, according to TV Addict, the whole panel movie name dropped Blade Runner again and again, as if that movie was an important clue to the ending of BSG. Olmos was very intent on talking about the twist behind Harrison Ford's Deckard (discovering he's a replicant). What could this new obsession mean? I highly doubt that Adama is a Cylon, since Ronald D. Moore has stated time and time again that it won't be Adama. My guess is, it's another main character but in the Adama family (as Blade Runner was quite big on the family ties). My money is on Lee or his mysterious younger brother Zak who we know will be appearing in the last few episodes of BSG. [TV Addict]
