Re: Question about Eilerson spoiler

I'm not sure, since I don't have much behind-the-scenes access. But my guess is that there are simply so many attempts, that some get through via brute force and sheer numbers.

I've been less and less enchanted with the Marvel film/TV stuff in general, and so while I know I'd quite like some (say, Thor: Ragnarok) I've de-prioritized them all. So haven't gotten around to...

Re: Possible 2018 San Diego Comic Con Panel

And word on the street is that Stan Lee has been pushed well beyond his stamina for the sake of the cash, but that's off-topic.

Re: Telepathy - why not use it more often?

The Centauri connection to the Shadows is extremely tenuous. But:

1) The Shadows are all about eyes. Their defense system over Z'ha'dum takes the form of Shadow eyes, and Morden refers to "our...

Short answer: yes. This happened quite a lot on B5 -- "Chrysalis" was filmed in the middle of Season 1, for instance.

Yes, it's still my favorite end to a series, as well. Even shows that I think are better than B5, that I love more, haven't nailed a finale like "Sleeping in Light."
