Enligt seriens medskapare Ron Moore , de är" Head Six "och" Head Baltar ", agenter av högre kraft. De känner till "den verkliga historien" av mänskligheten (och Cylons) eftersom de är eviga, och var runt för de tidigare cyklerna:
In the last scene, are “Six” and “Baltar” angels or demons?
Moore: I think they’re both. We never try to name exactly what the “Head” characters are—we called them “Head Baltar” and “Head Six” all throughout the show, internally. We never really looked at them as angels or demons because they seemed to periodically say evil things and good things, they tended to save people and they tended to damn people. There was this sense that they worked in service of something else. You could say “a higher power” or you could say “another power,” [but] they were in service to something else that was guiding and helping, sometimes obstructing, and sometimes tempting the people on the show. The idea at the very end was that whatever they are in service to continues and is eternal and is always around. And they too are still around…and with all of us who are the children of Hera. They continue to walk among us and watch, and at some point they may or may not intercede at a key moment.
