Caprica Season 1.0 recap
Recapping the events of the first half of
the single season of Caprica.
"Re-Caprica" at YouTube
After the long mid-season break from March 26-October 5, 2010,
the Syfy Channel showed a 5-minute long recap of the
first half of the season as a commercial shortly before the
premiere of "Unvanquished". It is included
in the bonus features of the Caprica Season 1.5 DVD
set, titled "Re-Caprica".
At 0:09 in the recap is a scene from BSG2000, depicting the
bombing of Caprica by the Cylons 58 years after the events of
the Caprica TV series.
The narrator, actress Alessandra Toressani (who plays Zoe),
refers to the U-87 inhabited by the Zoe avatar as the Zobot.
The recap implies that little Willie Adama is the
William Adama who will become the commander of the battlestar
Galactica seen in BSG2000. However, this Willie dies in
the final episode of the series ("Apotheosis") and the coda of
that episode reveals that his father, Joseph Adama, later
married Evelyn and had a son together whom they named William in
honor of his lost first son.
The narrator remarks that the Zobot kills Philomon and "goes
O.J.", fleeing in a white Graystone Industries van. This is a
reference to O.J. Simpson, a former NFL football player accused
of murdering his ex-wife and her friend in 1994; he led police
on a chase in a white SUV.
After completing the recap of events so far, the narrator asks
if Daniel Graystone has gone Dr. Frakenstein. This is a
reference to Dr. Victor Frankenstein, a
(possibly insane) scientist who created life from death in Mary
Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein; it also replaces the
stem "Frank-" with "Frak-", the Colonial version of our curse
