If Da Vinci were Alive, I'm Sure he'd be a Cylon

It's coming down to the wire for the crew of Battlestar Galactica, and the human race for that matter. Does this picture reveal anything to us about the fate of the twelve colonies?

Okay, this won't make any sense if you don't watch the show. Arguably one of the greatest television dramas around and it's constantly the dark horse because it's set in outerspace. The cast is awesome, the special effects are boss, and the plot is gripping...What more do you want for a show on basic cable? You look at this picture which is a definite homage to the Da Vinci's last supper and it brings up alot of stuff. Interestingly Caprica-Six is the central figure with her tight red dress...does that mean she is a vessel for God/the Gods like Jesus? Also interesting is the return of Kara sitting with her husband Anders. Three of the five final Cylon models are also in the picture too. [Spoiler] Anders, along with Chief Tyrol, Tori the president's aid and the fleet's XO Saul Tigh have all been revealed as four of the final five Cylons. Saul Tigh is sitting next to an empty seat, which is more than likely the seat of the unrevealed final cylon. Speculation aside for the moment, It looks as though he's staring at the seat, the person being removed from the photo like photoshoping out a facial blemish.

What role will Kara Thrace play in the final season; during the movie Razor, a Cylon hybrid said beware of Kara Thrace before a nuclear explosion...interesting. What will happen to Gaius Baltar and Caprica-Six? What will the fate of the first Cylon/Human hybrid be? How will the final five Cylons affect the last leg of the journey to find earth. And speaking of the final five, I wonder if it's safe to say that the final Cylon is someone who isn't in the picture which makes me wonder who it could be. The fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica starts this Friday at 9 on Sci-Fi.
