Who was the final Cylon revealed in Battle Star Galactica?

16 January 2009
Battlestar Galactica is a beloved science fiction franchise that has captured the imaginations of viewers for decades. One of the most intriguing storylines in the series revolves around the mystery of the final Cylon. For several seasons, viewers were kept guessing about the identity of the final Cylon until it was finally revealed in the show's fourth season.

In the last minutes of the series finale, the identity of the final Cylon was revealed to be none other than Ellen Tigh, the wife of Colonel Saul Tigh. Ellen had been presumed dead for several seasons but returned with a shocking revelation that she was, in fact, a Cylon.

Ellen's reveal as the final Cylon was a major turning point in the series. It shed light on the nature of the Cylon's plan and the extent of their infiltration into human society. Her character was already complex, with a history of infidelity and a strained relationship with her husband. Her revelation as the final Cylon added a new layer to her character and further complicated her relationships with the other characters.

Kate Vernon, who played Ellen Tigh, gave an outstanding performance throughout the series, and her portrayal of Ellen as the final Cylon was no exception. She imbued the character with a sense of mystery and intrigue, which helped to keep viewers engaged and invested in the story.

The revelation of the final Cylon was a major moment in the series and one that fans still discuss and debate to this day, especially as there are some unanswered questions, such as how the character passed a test to demonstrate her humanity.

It's a testament to the writing and storytelling of Battlestar Galactica that even years after the series has ended, it remains a topic of conversation and fascination among fans of the show.
