So, tomorrow marks the end of Battlestar Galactica. I’ll be watching the two-hour series finale, probably projected on the wall for greater effect. However, I wanted to get some predictions on record PRIOR to the season ending. If you haven’t caught up with the series, stop reading now. There be spoilers here.
The plight of the humans looks hopeless. The old battlestar is falling apart, and won’t survive much longer. Earth was a bust, a nuclear wasteland, so there is no suitable homeland left. Starbuck found her own dead body on the planet, yet seems to be very much alive. We keep hearing the refrain, “This has all happened before, and it will happen again,” and I’m assuming they are not talking about another re-imagining of the series.
That brings us to last week’s cliff hanger. The lair of the Cylons has been discovered right at the accretion disk of a singularity – a black hole. A select group of humans (all the main stars, of course) have decided to take the old battlestar into a suicide mission to attack the Cylon colony. That’s where things were left.
Here’s my prediction…
Things get really bad for the humans. Key personnel die tragic deaths. But just when all seems lost, the battlestar explodes just as it and the Cylons fall into the black hole. Suddenly, everything is distorted because of a rift in the space-time continuum, and the scene shifts back to Caprica prior to the Cylon attack. The loop starts back over, and gets us set up for the new spin-off series about lift in Caprica that’s supposed to start some next year.
We’ll see if all this happens tomorrow night.
