109 Philo Deceased

Philo murdered

When confronted by the Zoe persona within the U-87 cylon prototype, Philo initially panics, and is pinned to the wall by the U-87 while Zoe frantically tries to explain who and what she is, and to enlist his help in escaping. This gives Philo time to collect his wits. He agrees to help Zoe, repeating his previous assertion that he doesn't care what she really looks like, but when she releases him he lunges for a nearby console and initiates an emergency lockdown. Startled, Zoe shoves him away from the keyboard, but 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")
