Yeah, I like Ta'Lon in this one.

And notice how he smiles at Lady Morella when she's obviously uncomfortable riding in the lift with him. ;)

My complaint about that little elevator scene is, what Centauri Royal Guard worth his salt would ever allow a Narn to stand next to the wife of the former emperor? Just one of those small irritating moments at which the internal consistency of the show was sacrificed for a good camera angle...

Well, maybe he knew that Ta'Lon was helping with station security and that he wouldn't harm here as long as he was serving the Humans.

As I recall, Ta'Lon was clearly wearing a Security badge. I'm sure that all Centauri security forces had to have been briefed as to the status of Narns wearing that symbol.

LOL, if a visiting diplomat doesn't wish to be in the vicinity of the local security forces, perhaps that diplomat shouldn't be visiting.

:lol: Why, Sindatur.

Some dignitaries wouldn't be able to travel anywhere if those who disagree weren't kept out of sight. ;)

Security guard or not, I still think the Centauri guard would have placed himself between Lady Morella and the Narn just because he's a Narn. Londo's attitude towards the Narns doesn't change a bit after they take over Security.

But then, the Centauri guards have a history of being less than useful. When Emperor Turhan is collapsing in the hallway, his two guards don't do anything for a second or two beyond look at each other. You'd better believe that the Secret Service would be in action faster than that if the President collapsed. I guess the Centauri Guards are more accurately described as the Centauri Goons.

A definite A. I missed this episode during the original run and had to wait til the reruns on TBS.
So many good little items along with the big plots...Vir demanding another cloth from Londo...the aforementioned Ta'Lon smirk...
Prophesy isn't supposed to be clear and succint

I don't recall JMS ever giving a definitive answer to the question of what incident goes with which prophecy.

OOoops! My apologies. I lost track of things and thought you were talking about the pointless and seemingly eternal "debate" about who "the one who is already dead" is. (Sherdan. JMS said so. End of story.)

So you weren't wrong and JMS didn't disagree with you and I'm just gonna quit while I"m behind. :)

Regards,

Joe
