OK, have been pondering...
The phrase "This has happened before and will happen again" pops up alot in the series.
The 13th tribe made its way to earth. Along the way there is "the temple of the five"
What if the 13th tribe are cylons? This has happened before and will happen again...
That could explain why there is a temple of five on the algae planet.
What if the reason Kara Thrace is the harbinger of death for humanity is because when she leads humanity to earth it turns out that the people already there are actually Cylons or Human/Cylon hybrids from thousand(s) years ago.
This also could explain why the final five are suppost to have been to earth and know the way.
Just some random thoughts I have had. Probably totaly wrong, but I ponder when there are no new episodes to watch for a week...

Early in the series, I was not sure if the new series was a continuation or a reimaging, so when this phrase popped up, I was wondering if they were saying the Cylon/human war had happened before, many years ago.

In Razer, does the hybrid say she is the harbinger of death for humanity, or just the harbinger of death? Without the humanity note, it could mean the cylons.

Well here is the thing that caught my attention while I was wathing RAZOR, when Adama has his flashback to the Cylon torture rooms..when he gets out he gets the message that the war is over and that an armistice  has been agreed too..ok during the orginal BSG the same thing happened, but the  armistice was a trick by the cylons and that is when they attacked the colonies.. just something to think about..

I checked (still have on my HDD box) and it's specifically humanity.

Episode 8 was shown in the UK tonight...one of the best for a while imho :)

No spoilers but I'll just say that the "finding Earth" and the "mystery of the Five" plots didn't go much further this week.  It was more of a character episode.  Everyone's favourite lawyer and his cat are back and we find out that Tigh has an ability you wouldn't think a normal Cylon would have: perhaps adding evidence that the last revealed four are not regular Cylons.  And the ending was a bit Empire Strikes back...you'll see what I mean on Friday  ;)

You mean, think about the similarities between the strategic "catch 'em while their pants are down by signing a peace treaty gag" that took course over a short amount of time as in the original as opposed to the re-imagined strategic, "call a time out, fall back, rebuild your forces gag" which took 40 years to accomplish, which are two totally different tactics?

Billy Dee Williams and Chewbacca go hunting for #3 who is being held captive in a carbonite block?

While Billy boy, Chewie and 3 weren't actually in the episode, one character found themselves in a (sort of) Lando/Chewie end of ESB situation and a whole bunch of people were in a similar position to #3 (but as in captive not "boxed"). Main difference would be that there was no carbonite involved.   So just like ESB. In a way. Sort of.

Also someone was someone’s father.

I once knew a guy....oh never mind.  ;)

Sounds like a fun episode. I still hope that they get Richard Hatch back in there to be the final cylon.

After that last episode and comparing it to the hybrid prophecy in the DVD version of razor, my list of possible canidates for the final cylon is at three.
I was going to post the link to the prototype hybrid speaking, but OF COURSE youtube wont load at all now that I want to do this....
Also the last supper photo from what Moore said DOES NOT have the final cylon in it.

EDIT- here is the link to the  The Cylon Prototype Hybrid Prophecy

I sort of cannot wait until tomorrow night. It's about time to get my fix. I find this show to be kind of a love-hate thing. It's really enjoyable to watch, but I hate it because watching one episode is kind of a let down. I get hyped up for nothing pretty much. When one episode ends, I want to watch another twenty right after. Aggravating stuff.
