Re: EpDis: Atonement

Reiner Schöne is excellent in this – one of the finest guest star performances in the entire series I think. I believe I'm right in thinking that JMS originally planned this as a trilogy of episodes, before he shunted the whole of the Earth civil war arc into this season, and instead moved some of the material he couldn't fit in into In the Beginning.

It is never stated in the series who the new Minbari leader was. I know the comics addressed that a bit, and if memory serves I think the leader was meant to have died, but it seems odd it was never mentioned in the series. Did JMS just drop that angle so he could concentrate on the conflict between the different castes?
