Is anyone else thinking of all the subtle links to Adama that the Final Five have? I know we went through this before with the four, but then I was thinking, Where does Ellen fit in to the Supporting Roles theory? you know the one. Tigh - Supports Adama, Tory - Supports Roslin, Anders - Supports Starbuck, Galen - Supports pretty much all of Galacticas Fighters and Raptors.
Then I was thinking, They all support Adama... indirectly.
Ellen supports Tigh, keeping him happy in Season 1 (admittedly leading him astray at the start of Season 2) but then keeping him alive on New Caprica, making it possible for him to continue to keep Bill in touch. He is, after all, Bills best friend.
Anders supports Starbuck, who is like a daughter to the old man.
Tory supports Roslin, who is the driving force of the fleet, and who is very dear to him. His significant other, if you will.
And Galen keeps Adamas ship running, giving him the tools necessary to defend the people of the fleet and lead them to [insert final destination here]
I still like the connotations towards polytheistic mythology, and I just can't shake off the Adama - Zeus, father of the gods association that I picked up a while back.
Just a wild theory that was flying through my head, so I decided to inflict it upon you all...
