Kevin Murphy: We would have dealt with Joseph and his civil rights work. He would have had an affair with Fidi behind Evelyn’s back. Young Bill would have been a spooky, intense kid with a lot of anger over being named for his dead older brother.
They were really planning on having Joseph to have a third/fourth affair. Oh, come on, I thought that they would have tried to make all the characters more likable (like starting with Joseph not cheating on his second wife) and not just have Daniel being less of a douche to everyone, move away from the Tauron Mafia, and not enslaving the last version of his dead daughter, etc...
Kevin Murphy: You’re talking about plans concocted a year and a half ago, so I’ll apologize in advance for any BSG continuity errors I may make. We planned to jump five years, then fill in the blanks in flashback, while moving the storyline against the backdrop of the 12 worlds on the brink of war with the Cylons.
I really don't know if jumping five years into the future would have been a good idea. Personally, I would have the show start off a few months pass, and then fill in the gaps. The reason, is because there was way too much going on and jumping five years would have just added to my anger of "not following through" on the already ongoing story lines that hadn't been resolved.
Kevin Murphy: Zoe is a Caprican Legionnaire. She’s a skin-job, but not the undetectable kind from BSG. It’s a rudimentary version of the technology. She’s more like Arnold in Terminator. The writers reasoned that nobody in the future BSG series was aware this early skin-job existed because Daniel went to great pain and expense to keep it hidden. We would have learned that Jordan Duram survived his gunshot wounds, has permanently left the GDD and is Zoe’s commanding officer. He figures out her secret and helps her keep quiet in return for her assistance on sensitive black-ops missions. As for Zoe, she is mother of Cylons. Some ineffable portion of her “soul” remains in every Cylon for reasons connected to why U-87s are so curiously protective of Zoe’s BFF Lacy. But Zoe has turned against her “children” and has decided to cast her lot in with her human family and the human race.
I do like the idea of the Final Five showing up at the end, but then I really don't want to see a skin-job Zoe and Duram teaming-up to form some kind of secret crime-fighting team.
