DEVILS AND ANGELS AWAIT ?


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 faith
ful 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.

And idea: Kara as a Lord of Kobol?

Perhaps 2,000 yrs/ago she brought about the destruction of mankind on Earth and that is what the hybrid is referring to.

Or, the hybrid could be referring to a long chain of events: Kara bringing Leoben aboard; Leoben's arrival beginning the human/cylon alliance, which ultimately led to the Felix/Zarek rebellion... but that doesn't much seem like the "end of the human race." The rebellion may be dirty, but it can't be anything that drastic. That line of thought seems like bit of a stretch.

Since the hybrid's comments don't always make logical/temporal sense, she very well could be referring to Starbuck's role in the nuking of earth 2,000 years ago.

Just an idea :)
