Re-Caprica "Re-Caprica"
Caprica Season 1.0 recap

Recapping the events of the first half of the single season of Caprica.

Watch "Re-Caprica" at YouTube

Didja Know?

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".

Didja Notice?

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 word "fuck".
