Okay, you beat me to it. I wrote an hypothesis and dumped it. So here's a rewrite.
2nd Mass gets to Charleston closely followed by ol' RedEye. I surmise that Ol' RedEye let Tom live in order to use him later as an ally.
They're greeted and welcomed, but the cliff hanger has them realizing that all is not well. End Season.
Next season: 2nd Mass joins in an underground in Charleston working (think BSG and the concentration camp) to get out and continue the fight.
Ol' RedEye (red eye like a Cylon.....
) lets the underground know that things are going to go pear shaped and helps them escape before the aliens start eliminating Charleston.
The skitters are slave mercenaries of the skinnies. Yeah, I know I've written this before. Ol' RedEye sees a chance with human help to bring the skinnies down and gain freedom for the skitters.
2nd Mass and Ol' Red Eye form an uneasy aliance as they don't trust a skitter. Legitimate gripe since the skitters use children to incubate their young.
Final season. Trust issues, blah, blah, blah lead up to the final encounter where the humans and the skitters defeat the skinnies. Kumbayah!!!
By laying this out, I'm not being critical of the show. It's just that I'll be surprised if a human/skitter (as BSG did with the Cylons rebels) aliance doesn't come about. If I'm wrong.....
then no one will remember this but me
