Six Gets Challenged In Battlestar

Source: SciFi Wire

Tricia Helfer, one of the stars of SCI FI Channel's original series Battlestar Galactica, told SCI FI Wire that her characters—all variations of the Cylon Number Six—will face challenges as the series returns with new episodes at 10 p.m. on Jan. 21.

"I think it's mostly Caprica Six, and she's kind of at a crossroads," Helfer said in an interview at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., last week. She said that the character will do something that won't be looked on kindly by her fellow Cylons.

Caprica, the original Six model, will make a fateful decision at the end of the first new episode, "Rapture," which also marks Battlestar Galactica's debut in a new timeslot on Sunday nights. "She kind of feels that, maybe, like Athena [Grace Park], ... she can be accepted by the humans," Helfer said. "And I think she feels a little bit of turmoil and not sure which side she should be on."

As for her on-again, off-again relationship with Gaius Baltar (James Callis)? "She's actually kept quite separate from Baltar," Helfer revealed.

In future episodes, Helfer said: "I think [fans will] be a little bit surprised with an episode coming up. ... We find Caprica Six, she's getting a little bit confused, ... but then we see a scene where her strength comes back, and her ... you're-not-going-to-push-a-strong-woman-around kind of strength comes back, and I think we may have a few people cheering."
