I give it an A for the elevator scene alone.

I gave it an "A", too! Without question, the elevator scenes nailed it for me, but there are others that struck me as just wonderful.

I can still see Delenn banging on that glass door trying to get to Lennier after the explosion.

I thought the bomber was suffienctly off his rocker and the "don't move there's a gun up your nose" scene with Sheridan quite good. Although going outside to find the bomb broke the established rhythm/pace of the whole thing for me, overall I thought it was quite good.

Oh, and I did love the hallway scene where Sheridan has to hide his link and asks Garibaldi where he should put it. Did you see his little face?....Too funny! :D And then he ends up sitting on it!! :lol: :lol:

I rewatched this episode on DVD tonight and I would have to give it a solid B, mainly due to the G'Kar and Londo scenes. It may not be an arc episode per se but I think it is an important episode leading into Dust to Dust.

While G'Kar had already grown as a character from his quasi-villain role in the first season, he was still bound by his fixation on the Centauri. Granted, the post Dust to Dust G'Kar was far from willing to embrace the Centauri but he had started to see his role and that of his people in a new light.

The episode also had a number of humrous scenes in addition to Londo talking to Lennier. For example, it had Zack Allen telling the Drazi pilgrims "Why don't you go poke the plant for a while so that I can take care of your entry visas." Then it also had Lennier telling an obnoxious human that he had an incurable and contagious disease.

That was [Doug] Netter's Syndrome, wasn't it?

Yep. And the "obnoxious man" was John Flinn, B5 Director of Photography.

Also the outtakes from this one in the blooper reel
(don't remember which season of dvds this outtake appears on)
with Peter Jurasik were hilarious. :D

AKA President Louis Santiago, yes. And the obnoxious man Lennier lied to was Directory of Photograph John Flinn. (Yes, he's actually listed as "Obnoxious Man" in the credits.)

Londo: I hate my life.
G'Kar: So do I.

I was going to give this a C, but upon reflection the exchange between Longo and G'kar in the elevator was powerful in that it told us a lot about G'kar's mental state, particularly the depth of his hatred.

That is one amazingly great scene. I loved hearing jms talk about Andreas filming that scene in the memorial reel on the TLT disc.

That the one where it was Andreas' idea to start laughing? I really liked hearing that story, because I thought that laughing was absolutely fantastic. It really played off so perfectly (I'm a big fan of the whole tragi-comedy thing), so much props to the man.
