Re: EpDis: Day Of The Dead

That conversation with Marcus in Ceremonies of Light and Dark is interesting. Lennier says he loves Delenn, but not in a romantic way.. he claims his love for her is more noble and more pure. I don't believe him when he says that. But, now that I think about it, I don't know if that is because I know what comes later, or because it just sounds ridiculous. I DID believe that he was accepting the fact they'd never be together, and that his love for her would remain a secret.

I didn't pick up on any bitterness from Lennier in Racing Mars, either. He just dutifully waits outside the bedroom with the other Minbari while Sheridan and Delenn "discover each other's pleasure centers". I didn't see the slightest hint of jealousy there. There's some obvious disapproval at the end there ("Woohoo??"), but that seems to me more about Sheridan not taking the ritual seriously or something like that. And anyway, that whole scene is just there for laughs, right?

I believe you are right about Lennier's inexperience and black/white morality, and that something rather interesting could have happened with that ...
