The young lady above is Pyrrha Nikos. She is having a dreadfully bad day,
...but not nearly as bad as some people.
Good GRIEF! The thing is, Pyrrha held it together, in spite of the mental assault and her own distractions but she did not reckon with...the wires.
One would think that a reboot would be possible, but with all the death imagery, the fact that the EMP looked like it gave her a heart attack just before her accidental dismemberment and that sickening sound coinciding with the deadening of her eyes, it looks like poor Penny's not just merely dead she's really most sincerely dead.
Thankfully Ruby's bad day doesn't hold a candle to Penny's. Still, while she fights valiantly to uphold justice, the public trust, and continuity.
(I bet you also thought this was just a one time cop-out to end that food fight 17 episodes ago)
Alas, all her efforts are for naught...
Now, to be fair, some people are actually not having a bad day at all...
Indeed, some people get their hat and cane back after being indisposed for 9 episodes...
...and even get to play with expensive toys.
Of course this has the unfortunate side effect that for most people the day just gets worse...
...and it's about to get worser still.
I'm guessing this is all just a distraction while Cinder runs to soul-suck "Autumn" but the sheer scale of the mayhem that's about to happen makes me doubt the efficacy of the villain's plan. One gains little from ruling over a world that's been obliterated.
On balance then it looks like bad days all around.
Your humble reviewer, however, is enjoying this immensely. This was a gatling gut punch and kept me on the edge of my seat.The season has certainly turned rather dark, I guess those lyrics actually mean something.
They have 3 episodes left in which to screw this up.
Haven't caught up on the series since Christmas, but regarding the lyrics and the OP, I figured the imagery of the primary eight characters desperately trying to hang on to each other as centrifugal forces tear them apart was fairly indicative of what we were in for.

I know why she doesn't want to go through with the merge...
Pyrrha commitment. :-)
