Season 4 BSG Spoiler, Possibly, Maybe

During the Writer's Meeting Podcasts, one of the writers (not Ron) threw out on idea of introducing a plot point in 'Razor' and then exploring it further in Season 4. This plot point would have some ramification for the Final Five. The idea wasn't discussed at length and there was no mention of coming back to it later. They could decide to use the idea later though, making it a spoiler, so I ended up not discussing it in my post on the Writer's Meeting. On the other hand, it may never be talked about again so then it's not a spoiler. But since it was an intriguing idea and one that I had seen people on my Flist mention I thought I would do a separate post about it. I do have a few fellow spoiler whores on my Flist ;), the rest of you can just keep moving along.

From the podcast:

During the nuclear explosion that destroys the Cylon ship, something happens as Kendra and the hybrid are killed. On resurrection ships we see, in glass cases, a new line of Cylon being molded, created and this new model of Cylon is...Kendra. She knows everything about them (the Cylons) and about us. In Season 4 they (those on board Pegasus, Galactica, etc) would have to deal with the character in a different way as she may now be the enemy.

My two cents:

I'm torn on the thought of Kendra being the final Cylon model. I do think Kendra was a very interesting character and one I hated to see go so soon. But I thought they were holding back the identity of the final Cylon because it was going to be the shocking reveal of a character we are deeply invested in. Though it seemed clear that at the time of the recording of the podcast they still didn't know who the final Cylon would be. Which would be in keeping with the debate last season as to who the four they would reveal as Cylons would be. If Kendra is the final Cylon then it would mean Lee, Kara, Laura, and Adama are not and I think I might prefer that scenario.
