Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

A fair analysis, but I dispute your contention that Talia's second personality was a "retcon." Here's JMS on the subject, courtesy (as always) of the Lurker's Guide:

One other thought on of the motifes we've played with from the start was always showing Talia in Race, in Z'ha'dum and others...always showing the reflection, her opposite, just to set stuff up on an emotional/symbological level.
The Talia situation likely could've been finessed more smoothly than it was, no mistake. Sometimes there are going to be ragged spots. It's going to happen.
There's also stuff about how it was Talia's alternate personality that was "Control" in "Spider in the Web."
Know what you do.

The Generous Grasp
