"Are you kidding me?" -Young

Do you think that Varro is telling the truth? Is he a good guy?

My jury is still out of that one.

Probably. From a photo taken during a scene close to the season finale. He and young were dirty as if they had been in a battle and it seemed they were on the same side.

Varro is probably as sincere as Ginn was.

I think so given that scene between Simeon and Varro a few episodes ago. He didn't expect Simeon would kill Ginn

The problem is that he has had little to no development since the very beginning of the season, the only two LA people who were developed have been killed off so now they have to try and get the audience to accept another essentially new character after the writers/whoever have shown their hand in not keeping the LA members around. I find that I cannot care one way or another for him since I am certain he will be killed off at some point.

I think Varro may have underestimated the threat that Simeon posed. In Pathogen he confronted Simeon and told him to stop causing trouble. He may have believed that that was enough. If the different factions of the LA tend to keep to themselves as Varro claimed, than he might not have known Simeon well enough to anticipate that he would be loyal enough to the Alliance to protect them at all costs. Besides, given that Varro seems to believe that cooperation is his best chance to remain on board Destiny, I don't think he would be involved in a plan that at best, if his involvement was discovered, would have him sent off the ship, or at worst have him killed by Rush.

From the little we know of him I am starting to like his character so I'm hoping he is, especially now that we lost Ginn :(

As we see in Pathogen during the Varro Simeon confrontation Varro does in fact knwo about the attack on Earth. He knew the threat Simeon posed, and he did nothing about it. Rewatch pathogen or check the transcript on this site. Varro might be good, but he isn't an angel.

Which two LA folks were developed? Ginn and Simeon? Simeon didn't get developed until his final episode. Ginn got her development in her second to last ep. Varro has gotten at least as much development as those two. Maybe you were talking about Kiva (sp?).

I'm thinking the same thing. I hope we see more of him as Mike Dopud is a badass. :D

I'm thinking Varro and the other LAs onboard Destiny are wishing they got exiled to that planet, they'd have a longer lifespan at least.

Or he thinks his tellig someone is more than enough to make things happen.

Hopefully we will soon get some major character development for Varro, after killing off Simeon and Ginn and leaving most of them on a planet, there's not a lot of LA. Would hate to see them all killed or removed, they add a nice twist to the dynamics of the Destiny crew.

I could easily see Varro becoming a fearless, selfless soldier who would gladly risk his life for others around him. But that's too expected so who knows?? Guess we'll find out

Varro has his own agenda. For now, he is happy to hang with Young and company. If he gets a chance to advance his own agenda, I believe he will take it.

While we know little about Varro's background, we do know from Pathogen, I believe, that he was aware that Simeon was providing false info about the attack to Homeworld Command .However, he did not report this to Young which shows that he is willing to withhold information for the safety of the LA members. Also, Varro himself indicates that Simeon is quite dangerous yet he did not execute a warning before indicating this.

Varro didn't know that Simeon was providing false info, which is why he corrected him. That entire conversation is meant to show that they're trying to play ball and he doesn't want Simeon ruining it. He doesn't rat Simeon out because Simeon is part of the crew, too.

Yes, but at that point they were all released and we see Simeon's reaction then. There is no reason to assume that Simeon was also not already interviewed at that point and had his chance to give information , in exchange for release. The conversation with Varro happened after the release, so intel would have been already provided.

Varro's only agenda here is to integrate with the crew.

Well, it's his only agenda of which we are aware. For all we know, Varro may be aware of Destiny's "mission" and hopes that his integration to Destiny's crew will permit the advancement of some other goal.

I'm thinking we haven't seen all of his cards.

That would be a very interesting twist. What if Varro is part of a benevolent LA faction? That would throw in some gray stuff. Would that make him a bad guy? Even though he is trying to give his faction an upper hand over the other ones?

The man definitely has his own agenda and I have a feeling it's going to be a doozy. Maybe it's just me being conspiracy minded but I don't trust Varro as far as I could throw him. He seems sincere enough but sometimes when someone is trying toooo hard///you know?

In any case, I wonder if he's being honest when he says no, that there's no one else from Simeon and Ginn's clan, or even if that matters. That guy is hanging onto something and it's going to throw a spanner in the works when it comes out

I wonder if he realizes he is from there and therefore if they knew he wou then be the next choice to be tortured for info...
