It looks like we may in for a minor retcon (most likely the result of the writers forgetting they had named Adama's mother). It seems that in Caprica she will be named Shannon. Press releases and casting information. -- Noneofyourbusiness 19:35, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Shannon, Evelyn and the Lighter
This discussion is based on spoilers for the "final five" episodes of Caprica — look away if you're staying spoiler-free.
|Spoiler follows, highlight to read.|
|Since it turns out that Willie Adama of Caprica and William Adama of BSG are two different characters, half-brothers, someone should check the dialogue in "The Hand of God" to see whether the cigarette lighter belonged to William's mom (Evelyn) or to Shannon. I'd guess that Adama referred to his mother, but since I don't have access to the episode on DVD I can't check.|
