This was such an amazing episode. Busy, in the extreme. You could see the end of the episode coming, and kept hoping that it wouldn't.......

It's an excellent episode.Very dark but very important for the story arc.I could almost feel Londo's fear and desperation when he came out of the palace and saw all those jump points forming around Centauri Prime.

An A-, definitely one of the best of Season 5. This episode also really feels like it should have been a two-parter.

From every perspective (Londo on Centari Prime, Delenn and Lennier floating helplessly in space, Franklin and Leta desperately trying to get the information in time and Sheridan racing to stop it all) we really get the feeling that this is the 11th hour.

What a cliffhanger! Excruciating to wait for the next episode when it was initially aired...

It's hard to pinpoint all the various things going on - Londo and G'Kar on Centauri Prime, Delenn and Lennier on their way to Minbar, Sheridan trying to stop disaster, to mention only the important ones. (Oh, and Lyta and Franklin...) A few details I noticed:

Lochley speaking her log entry is again used as a narrative device.

Was Londo only being tested for his suitability, or was some kind of operation necessary to prepare him for the Keeper?

Why did Delenn take Lennier on the mission? Did he just happen to be in the area?

What was G'Kar writing in prison? Just a journal, or continuing his Book?

So the Centauri minister who always seemed to be in charge was the Minister of Defense. I still wonder if he was controlled by a Keeper...

I admit to watching this and the following episode back to back, so more on the next thread.

I think it was just a suitability test.

She's trying to keep it secret; remember Sheridan said they couldn't do this mission in the open, so Lennier is the one she trusts to keep it covert.

No, he's just an opportunist.

This is a VERY exciting episode. Kind of depressing, but exciting, for sure. There is SO MUCH going on here. Unfortunately my DVD appears to be broken, so so it was kind of a jerky experience, and I had to skip bits here and there.

At least 7 Centauri are murdered on Babylon 5 in three days. That's a HUGE number of murders for a population of 250,000. This war just seems more vicious than other wars ... Not that earlier Narn/Centauri war wasn't vicious. But that's a LOT of murders.

Mainly, I feel terrible for Londo in this. And Regent Virini... and all the people on Centauri Prime, I suppose. I bet they all thought things would get better after Cartagia and the Shadows were gone.
