How Should 'Caprica' End? Ron Moore Has No Idea!

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 15th 2010 5:04PM
caprica zoe'Caprica' continues to deliver its own unique blend of intriguing sci-fi drama while also adding to the mythology of 'Battlestar Galactica'. So far, we've seen the "birth" of the first Cylon, explored Admiral Adama's Tauron roots, and discovered the origins of the Cylons' monotheistic leanings. But how far will 'Caprica' take us? What will the series' end game look like? Will it conclude with the first Cylon war? The eventual fall of the thirteen colonies?

In a recent video interview (embedded after the jump), series creator Ron Moore said that the end point of the series isn't clear yet. The writers still haven't decided how far they want to take the story. Moore did promise that we'd see Zoe's avatar "progress." He also revealed that we might eventually see her "in the flesh as it were, in the real world."

I'd love to see 'Caprica' conclude with Zoe becoming a 'BSG' style "skin job." It would be a nice personal victory for Zoe while foreshadowing tragedy for everyone else on the show.

How do you think 'Caprica' should end? We've heard rumblings that the "Final Five" Cylons might eventually play a role on the show. Should it conclude with the Five witnessing the Cylon war? Or would you rather see the series end on a less tragic note?

Personally I'd like to see the show end with the Cylon war starting. Even if it had to skip a few years, we could at least see some stylistic and technological development.
It should end with the troops leaving for war, including Young William.
It should have an early 60's cold war feel, with growing paranoia.
Technology will start dumbing down to deal with the Cylon threat, think London during WW2 when the lights had to go out.
As the aircraft start to develop, including the vipers, I'd like to see some of them in polished aluminium as per the Korean War era (camo is no use again Cylons after all).
Just a nit pick but I'd like to see more of the unusual styled US cars, not just European (this show is seen around the world) think Studebakers and Virgil Exner styled Chrysler products, in particular the 60's dodge air force trucks, they would fit right in with the style. The viper pilots should have the 50's styled helmets that William is holding in the photo with his two sons, at least at the start of the war.
Ok I better stop, but this show has so much potential, thank you Ron Moore, for the only two reasons for me to watch TV.

Considering they had no idea how to end the last series, it seems likely he'd have no idea this time too. Will it be as awful as the conclusion of Battlestar? That's tough to top...

If they were to present some flash forward style of narrative, I wouldn't mind seeing the 5... otherwise, I just don't see how they can do it. Having the other actors who the numbered models are based on would be fine, but not the 5.

As much as I'd love to see the BSG mythology expand, as a stand-alone series, I believe it should end right at the beginning of the Cylon uprising, when the audience becomes aware that humanity is about to get some big time comeuppance. This also means that there should be no Final Five since they come with a load of backstory to the uninitiated. Their introduction is also not a conclusive way to end the series, as they segue right into the opening of Battlestar Galactica. Again, the series should have its own beginning and end.

We already saw the scene where the Final-Five came to the colonists in Razor from Bill Adama's perspective. That's when the war ended and the cylons disappeared for 40 years. Adama was aged at least 20, so if they want to include them in the plot they most definitely need to do a few time jumps.

I forgot to add, this show isn't about war... so I don't see them going that route.

There would have to be some serious time jumps for the Final Five actors not look too old to play the parts. Personally, I wouldn't mind a time jump of 3 or 4 years so they could get rid of the kid playing young Adama.
