'Caprica' fans are preparing for plenty of drama and surprises in the last two episodes of the first half of season 1.

The first episode airs tonight at 9PM ET on Syfy, and in it, Daniel (Eric Stoltz) is convinced that Zoe's (Alessandra Torresani) avatar is hiding in the robot and conducts a series of dangerous tests to flush her out.

AOL TV caught up with Torresani and show creators Ronald D. Moore and David Eick on the red carpet of Tuesday night's Syfy Channel upfront presentation to get the scoop on where the rest of the season is going.Caprica on Syfy'Caprica' fans are preparing for plenty of drama and surprises in the last two episodes of the first half of season 1.

"There's a big accident that's coming, and it's pretty bad," warned Torresani, adding coyly, "Especially when we did the break, I thought they were going to come and bring me back. That's how big it is." Add to that the rumor that one or two characters might perish in next week's episode, and life is going to become tumultuous on Caprica.

Things are going to reach a higher pitch when the show returns this fall after a long hiatus. "The second half of season 1 slams everyone's story lines into a new gear, and I think we as the show makers found our sea legs," Eick said. "It always takes about eight to 10 episodes of a new series to figure out your strengths and what you need to write to, and one of the things that has been a benefit to the show in some of the later episodes is being able to focus on one, two or three story lines without worrying so much about servicing everything. That's given us free reign to look at ways to shock and reinvent and throw things up in the air that we probably wouldn't have thought of if we were trying to service everything at once."



When asked for hints he could drop, Eick said, "Keep your eye on Clarice. A lot of it is what you expect, but a lot of it is not what you expect. We've said this before, but she's the Baltar of 'Caprica' in terms of her acting ability and also the character's ability to surprise you."

As far as whether viewers might start seeing the Cylon enslavement by man at the end of season 1 or in season 2, Moore said, "More [in the] next season than this one, but you're going to start seeing the seeds of all those things being planted."

Do Moore and Eick envision an end date for 'Caprica'? "Not yet," replied Moore. "It was the same thing on 'Battlestar'. [In] year one, we really didn't have an idea of exactly how long the story would last, and we're sort of in the same place here. Looking ahead, there are several different places that we can end this series, and it's really hard to say at this point when we will feel like this story has reached its natural conclusion."

With rumors of both a second season of 'Caprica' and another possible 'BSG' spin-off in the making, it seems like there are still plenty of stories left to tell in this universe.
