Re: EpDis: And The Rock Cried Out No Hiding Place

The scene that's been mentioned most often, the juxtaposition between the gospel song and Refa's death, was one of those I remembered most vividly when I first saw B5. The cutting here is excellent! The lyrics of the song fit the situation perfectly, and it is well sung too. I'm a church musician and have known this particular spiritual for many years, so I was aware that it was not written specifically for this show.

I also found it interesting that the lines of the sermon we hear just before this scene, about enemies, fear, etc. paves the way for what happens on the Narn homeworld.

Interesting too is the fact that G'Kar condones the violence used but does not directly participate in it.
