Battlestar's Big Exit: "They Wanted Her Out of the Way"
SPOILER ALERT for those Rob Lowe-aholics who have not yet watched Sunday night's episode of BSG.... She had it coming. Battlestar Galactica's D'Anna Biers, the bossy, rule-busting Cylon played by Lucy Lawless, has been terminated. But the deed wasn't done by her human enemies - it was by her fellow Cylons, who "boxed" hundreds of D'Annas into a container the size of an iPod Nano and put it into permanent cold storage. "D'Anna shattered their peaceful little lives," Lawless says. "By discovering that knowledge is power, she had become their Saddam Hussein, and they wanted her out of the way." D'Anna, who had defied the Cylon collective with her messianic convictions, believed that she could make a personal connection with God by repeatedly allowing herself to be killed and resurrected. Her quest took her far: She was ultimately able to look into the faces of the final five Cylon models, whom no one else on the show - or in the audience - has seen. What's next for Lawless?
