Okay, so let's put this up to a vote- was that, or was that not, the Brooklyn Bridge? My Dad recognized it as such, but I just panned over it assuming it was a Generic Destroyed City. Maybe it's just because I've seen New York ruined or attacked in so very many frakking films/books/shows that I see it as waaaay too cliché for BSG, but... I really hope it's not. I really do. I know New York is iconic, but I feel like there are other options than Manhattan burned to a crisp.
...Also, the prophecy talked about the dying leader never living to see Earth, sooo... What's up with that?
