My initial reaction was, there's no way those four are Cylons. There's
obviously something different about them, but the Cylon conclusion is
hardly definitive. There's Tyrol's kid, for starters, which completely
undermines the Big Deal that's been made of Hera as the only Cylon-human
hybrid. And Tighe is way too old to be a Cylon, since the humanoid ones
were (supposedly) only developped after the last Cylon War.

Cylons (who are really the original five, or something), and that after
humans created Cylons, the Cylons evolved into a New Human Race, who
then created Cylons again, who are now in the process of evolving into a
New Human Hybrid Race.... You know, "all of this has happened before,
and all of it will happen again" and all that.
And the fifth Cylon? Gotta be Roslin, I think.
I could, of course, be completely wrong about all of this, but that's
half the fun, isn't it?
