Pretty intense. And unlike most Galactica scenarios, where I feel like the whole thing could be avoided as long as people used common sense, this one feels totally believable. If you believe that the human race's survival is in jeopardy because your leaders are allying with the very people who destroyed the human race, then of course you're going to do whatever it takes to prevent that from happening. Both sides in this fight believe they're doing the only thing they can for the human race's survival.
And just as I said with Stargate Atlantis ending, this show benefits from there only being 8 episodes left. No one is bulletproof. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if everyone dies. (Although they still need to do it in a way that all the answers are finally revealed.)
