B everything has a consequence in B5 and Delenn gets hers for interfering in EA matters and a little piece of info about EM war humans have not changed in a two hundred years.

Re: EpDis: Ceremonies Of Light And Dark

A bit of a comedown after Severed Dreams, though I guess anything would struggle to follow up on that episode. Probably more notable for the confessions of the crew, and at last Marcus gets a decent bit of characterisation. Its an episode that is necessary at this point of the season, reflecting on what has happened.

I give it a C.

Re: EpDis: Ceremonies Of Light And Dark

Guess what...I liked it! I gave it an "A"!

I loved this episode, and I know you're thinking I give them all an "A", but look what we have here!

Londo and Lord Refa sharing a cocktail, do you think Refa ever stopped at one before or was it something Londo said? The scene is just excellent!

I also loved Marcus in this one and his: "Bugger, now I'm going to have to wait for one of them to wake up..." And the computer thing is cute, from "peekaboo" to the attitude, it's just cute! My computer has an attitude, too!

Then there's Lennier... poor Lennier, my heart just broke for him! He finally said it, something we all knew...he loves Delenn, but she's destined for someone else... something else we all knew. Not that I was ever against Delenn and John getting together, I love that relationship...but I was sad for him.

And the best for last: Delenn put herself between that knife and Sheridan, and then he went after that guy! My heart just stopped beating!

Sorry, this one gets an "A", too!

The scenes with Marcus and Lennier in the bar are classic. I also like the ceremony at the end of the ep., with the revelations from Ivanova, Garibaldi, and Franklin.

Good ep, but that Boggs guy and his top henchman are just plain weird!

That Boggs was such a good bad guy, wasn't he? ...Creepy...the scar...It just worked for me! And I know him from somewhere, I haven't figured it out yet...I'm trying not to cheat and just Google him but it's sooo hard!!

Re: EpDis: Ceremonies Of Light And Dark

I gave it a B as it was very good but followed one of the best and served as a "pause" moment. Definitely a character driven ep.

Well, the actor, Don Stroud, played Walker Smith's mentor in TKO, but he was under heavy alien make-up so maybe you recognise him from somewhere else?
