Na'Toth was a prisoner of the Centauri herself, remember. As for how she'd react to G'Kar being prisoner, she'd probably try and kick Cartagia's ass. :lol:

Ah, but would that have happened had Mary Kay Adams actually performed Na'Toth the same way that Caitlin Brown did, and jms had kept the character around the entire series?

Mary Kay was not as good as JCB was! ;)

I think G'Kar was much better off going solo, but had Na'Toth stayed. . .

I think she would have been a strong reminder of his past regrets. His warmongering, his scheming, his "reputed fascination with Earth women" -- all of it.
I do not think she would have bought into the idea of G'Kar being a spiritual leader, still tending to believe nothing, and she would have been even more angered by her people's obsession with G'Kar.
I think she would have laughed her way out of the room the same way G'Kar did in "Into the Fire," if she would have met that "Our reverance is our gift to you" Narn from "Objects in Motion."
Though I do not think she would have lasted until Season 5. Had she stayed, I think she would have faced certain death as a martyr for G'Kar's freedom.

Something interesting about G'Kar was the price on his head that the Centauri government placed. This issue was brought up when he left the station to find Garibaldi, but it never played a factor when he was on Babylon 5.
It would be kind of a comic book idea, and it was definitely good writing to leave this line of thinking out, but I could envision some Centauri bounty hunters going after G'Kar, and Na'Toth getting killed in the process.

That is just the way I saw it. JMS probably had something much better planned had Na'Toth stayed.

I wonder what Na'Toth would have done to Lyndysty had they met. :devil:

I've kinda always thought that if N'Toth had made it further, she would've gone with G'Kar, rather than Marcus, and probably been killed by Cartagia.

I voted average, keeping in mind that "average" for B5 is outstanding for many other shows.

I don't like the beginning, though. jms, if you must lecture us on the virtues of gun control, don't insult our intelligence by using a clown to represent the opposite side.

Really like the Stephen plot here, esp. the bar scene. The sudden acquisition of energy was very well handled, with a "What the heck was that that just went by, this is not good." kind of feel to it. Micheal's face there is nicely done, too. He has an addiction of his own, and that face speaks of recognising something all too familiar in his friend.
Oh, and
"just because you never met a bottle you didn't like!"
Ooooff, low punch! That's gotta hurt! :(

I'm watching this ep now, and I'm reminded of how much I like the part with Sheridan and Ta'Lon. It's an unlikely combination, but one that was brought about by the Streib in season 2. And since Ta'Lon is on the station with Na'Far, the Centauri-appointed Narn rep, he gets a chance to thank Sheridan again for saving his life on the Streib ship.

That's one of the great things about Ta'Lon. He starts out as a bit-part throwaway character, is brought back (unexpectedly) for a recurring role, and finally winds up as G'Kar's right-hand man and replacement.
