There is a lot of speculation that Ron Moore will take the final episodes of Battlestar Galactica in the direction of gods and devils, specifically the return of Lord Iblis in some form, perhaps the Lucifer Cylon model, and Head-Six as an angel (possibly for good, or perhaps a dark angel in service to dark forces).
Other observers have pointed out that Moore has been rather faithful to story elements from the original series, so we may yet see a version of the Ship of Lights and alien Seraphs.
And this truly brilliant post from Galactica Science posits a compelling theory as to the meaning of the plant Laura picked up on cinder Earth and its relation to the Thirteenth Tribe, the snakes she saw on her hands (my observation), the 13th sign of the Zodiac, and more.

As an anonymous poster to the comments section in the below post noted "L" (Laura) "N" (Natalie) Tigh are in a row left-to-right and the blank space next to Tigh is where Ellen would sit - next to her man. As written in Sometimes A Great Notion (see review at Galactica Variants) the reveal of Ellen as the 5th and Final Cylon works. I'm sold so far. We'll see how it spins out.
Now, if there's any truth to this, then is there anything else being spelled out in the image? [letters for most commonly used name]

Regular site visitors may know I've created an alternate ending to the one we'll be getting starting January 16th. I intend to have all 10 'episodes' done by then. Two stories are mostly done, teasers are up for all the others, and the work continues apace to complete them all. If you prefer the sleek to the gritty, science-fiction to action-adventure, and favored the mysticism and mythology of the story over the war story aspects you'll like my version.
