One of my favourite B5 shows ever. What other show deals in such explicit terms about the nature of guilt, forgiveness, revenge and mercy?

Sheer beauty.

I'll second that, Oately! It's an A in my book. Plus, I love Brad Douriff. As an actor, of course.

Definitely an A for Doc Cochrane.. er, I mean Brad Dourif.

A solid A. The first time I saw it I was very confused and intrigued; strong performances (and it's the last time we see Brother Theo until "And the Rock Cried Out..."), pretty intense. Until I got spoiled by Joss Whedon this was some of the finest television I'd seen that didn't involve huge battles.

I'm surprised. Usually this episode rates an "A" or an "F" (maybe a "D") from people I know. It's a love-it-or-hate-it kind of episode, I thought.

I had no idea Brad Douriff could act until this episode. Wow, he does a great job. I completely believe his character and I feel his confusion and agony when he begins to discover who he is.

Even thought I'm an ex-Catholic, I somehow can relate to his pain in feeling unable to repent for sins he doesn't know he committed. Brother Theo's interpretation is undoubtedly what the Church would say (as long as you are sincere, repent, God will understand kind of reasoning). But that just isn't good enough for Brother Edwards. He has a sincere need to repent, since that's the kind of guy he's been programmed to be, now.

The whole ethical issue of using mind-wiping is a pretty intense one if you look at it from this perspective.

The writing is great, in my opinion. The characters are all believeable. And the moment of revulsion at the end: perfection.

Talk about making your point clear and yet personal, you know?

I voted C because I don't much care for the whole Brother Edward story.
