109 Philo Deceased

Philo murdered

When confronted by the Zoe persona within the U-87 cylon prototype, Philo initially panics and Zoe pins him to the wall. Zoe frantically tries to explain who and what she is and to enlist his help to escape. This gives Philo time to collect his wits. He agrees to help Zoe, repeating his previous assertion that he does not care what she really looks like. However, when she releases him, he lunges for a nearby console and initiates an emergency lockdown. Startled, Zoe shoves him away from the keyboard. In her alarm, she forgets the strength of the U-87 and flings Philo head first into a support column, killing him instantly through blunt force trauma. Though his death is accidental, it could be argued that this makes him the first victim of the Cylon Wars. ("End of the Line")
