Advertisements The chief's sharon might have been a special case. She did not know she was a cylon and had blackout periods. My guess is that she had to communicate with the cylons in order to get orders and such. That's one possible explanation anyway. As far as the caprica sharon goes, it is not at all surprising that she knows a lot. She was part of the plan for a while and knew the plan, whereas the galactica sharon didn't seem to know much.
