The episodes have been action light, but the story this season is about everything falling apart, from the ships to the crews to their preconceptions about themselves and their enemies. Some depressing shit if you stop to think about it.

It's not going to end with hugs and dancing, I'd bet.
Yep. I keep thinking back to Ellen's comment to Roslin and the Adama's when she returned is some heavy foreshadowing...

"Imagine there were only 5 of you left, out of the billions that lived on the colonies".

Good take...it's all about:

...Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
