If you were worried that a few questions wouldn’t be answered in the final 10 episodes of “Battlestar Galactica,” you apparently have nothing to worry about as, according to actor Jamie Bamber, the final run of episodes will not only reveal the identity of the final Cylon, but will also answer every question the series has offered.
“Yeah, yeah, everything,” Bamber told SciFi Wire. “I can’t really think of a really loose thread … Not off the top of my head. I’m sure there are a couple, but I can’t think of one.”
In the new episodes, the characters will be forced to deal with their grim discovery of a scorched Earth with no 13th tribe awaiting their return. And if you thought that ending was shocking, just wait until you’ve seen what the season finale has in store.
“Every character has been tortured to death, basically, over the five years,” Bamber said. “What you can expect is a really, really good ending. You know, a real ending. And it’s all gearing to that, and I think the writers really took it upon themselves to be responsible for all the strange twists and story points and surprises and to try and resolve everything in a way that makes sense.
“And that’s a big challenge when you’re sort of story-making on the fly over five years … They’ve tied everything up. So that’s what you can expect, is a satisfactory, very elegant conclusion.”
Despite reports that the ending to the series will have fans screaming for a happier ending, Bamber believes that the conclusion the series is perhaps the best written episode the show yet, not to mention the best thing to hit the small screen.
Bamber said he was “blown away,” by the recently completed finale. “It’s the best thing I’ve ever read for TV. Yeah. I mean, I hope it translates, and it comes across, and it’s not just us, because we’re so involved. But I had tears in my eyes, and the thing is, [series creator] Ron [Moore] wrote it on his own, without really any collaboration, and it’s sublime.”
“Battlestar Galactica” will make its return to the SciFi Channel in January.
