BSG, yet again-spoiler alert

I had the feeling Earth was not going to be the Utopia they wanted. The last few minutes with Adama throwing away a handful of dirt as a Geiger counter clicked away suggests some global thermonuclear war. At least we did not die of global warming! But, of course, there are are a few lingering questions:
1. If humanity on this planet checked out in big flashes of light, who did it? Did we do it to ourselves or did the Cylons beat them here and give the Earth the mushroom makeover they visited upon the Colonies? (Remember, the Final Five have been to Earth.)
2. Who is our remaining mystery Cylon? Starbuck is looking more and more likely having returned to the Fleet in the showroom-new Viper containing the navigation data needed to get to Earth . . .
3. Will Gabrielle be re-united with Xena? Just wondering.

Gaita is the last. Earth is the past. All of this has happened before...

I had the thought that Gaita might be the last. But didn't D'Anna see the face of the fifth? I'm trying to remember - I know that someone saw the face of the fifth. If she did, then why didn't she demand that the fifth be returned as well?

Per Deanna, she said that there were only 4 with the fleet. But at the time, There were several fleet memebers on the cylon ship ( she said it right when she was first brought to Rosalyn after the "rescue". # 5 is probably one of them: Pres Rosalyn, Baltar, Helo, and the other pilots.

Wax Deanna at this point. We've got what we need out of her, and she's trouble. I don't know why the other Cylons are letting her call the shots.

Seasons 1-4 were better, but ending this was always going to be tough...
