I think the "harbinger of death" line deserves some more thought. Many have dismissed the line as something RDM abandoned in order to move the show in a different direction for the finale. However, I don't know if the ending of the show invalidated the line. For summaries sake here are the lines: "You are the Harbinger of Death, Kara Thrace. You will lead them all to their end." "You must not follow her. She is the Harbinger of Death." So what do those mean? Harbinger in the archaic means to go ahead and find lodging, which obviously Kara did. But, that doesn't jive with the death part. Unless you say that the death is for the cylons who will now never be able to procreate because Kara flipped the switch to elude them forever. Both times it was a hybrid speaking. So "you must not follow her" and death could be the hybrid's warning to cylons, not humans. Harbinger in the modern form of course means one who brings about or leads others to a monumental change... Well she certainly did that, but it didn't kill anyone. Although the FTL jump did kill Galactica, which put an end to their journey in some sense. I smiled when Adama realizes that Galactica is permanently disabled and immediately states with certaintly that they were staying put. Could the death also be the death of the cycle, "this has all happened before, and will happen again?" We'll we don't know that either... thanks angels! Does the end of the cycle mean that humans and cylons will eventually fade out of existence and meet their end? Or does it mean that, like in the Bible, the end of the Christ story signifies the eventual end of God's intimate connection with humans through prophecy and visions? You could draw all sorts of connections with death and the end of the cycle. I think my ultimate point is that we still cannot dismiss the hybrids' prophecy. The message still means something and that its ultimate meaning is still shrouded in quite a bit of ambiguity, but wonderful subtext, symbolism, and allegorical references.
