So who was the dying leader?
Laura would be the obvious answer ... but I don't think her role was particularly pivotal to anything. Yes she was the leader ... and she was dying ... and she was having visions ... but I think there are others with stronger cases.
"And the lords anointed a leader to guide the Caravan of the Heavens to their new homeland."
It strikes me that Roslyn may not have been anointed by the lords ... perhaps the leader was Kara. She was apparantly ressurected by God and given special knowledge to locate Earth.
"The dying leader shall know the truth of the opera house."
Was Kara the dying leader ... well she was dead ... you don't get much more dying than that. Clearly she was on borrowed time. Plus she learned the true meaning of the music on the bridge of the Galactica ... which is apparently the Opera House. With that knowledge she found the promised land.
On the other hand a case could be made for Ander's being the dying leader. After all the dying leader isn't supposed to see the promised land. Both Kara and Roslyn did ... for a short time ... but Ander's never got off the Galactica. In the end Ander's was more or less at one with the Galactica ... and of course it was the Galactica that led the people to the promised land in every way imaginable.
