Re: Cool stuff in season 1

ok i didn't catch this the other 4 times i watched b5 on dvd..

but the first ep, where sinclair is framed for killing Kosh...then deathwalker's buds -
and i didn't make the connection that the wind swords were responsible for both. I thought that was interesting.

Then this is later on in the seasons...the Katlyin character who's a singer - she is mentioned again when marcus is on the white star, and susan is dying...and he is researching Franklin's logs. franklin mentions her as dead.

so that's another thing i missed.

Re: Cool stuff in season 1

From the second time I watched B5, I noticed how Delenn was building the support for the triluminary she used in Crysalis whenever they'd show her in her quarters. This from about midway in the 1st season.

The old "hide in plain site". Everyone just figures aliens like to play with colorful triangles.

Re: Cool stuff in season 1

i never even noticed her building the triluminary. it wasn't till someone pointed it out later on i noticed.

but, since you brought it up. it took delenn all season to build that, and sinclair - he built it in 15 mins..or however long it takes to travel 1000 years back in time...

what was up with that! lol

Re: Cool stuff in season 1

Remember Delenn's conversation with Kosh in "Chrysalis?"

"I have great doubts. I must know if it's true. I must see with my own eyes." Kosh comes out of his encounter suit. Delenn says ""Yes, thank you. Now I will keep the promise."

What was it that she had to know was "true" that would respond to her "great doubts?"

I only understood that exchange when In the Beginning came out. Dukhat said ""If you ever have doubt about your actions, all you need do is look upon the face of a Vorlon. Once you see that all doubt is erased forever."

What Delenn was asking for was to see the face of Kosh, to erase her doubts. Once she sees that, she is satisfied.

What is cool about this is that Delenn's response to Dukhat's words come, in show time, more than three years before he says them!

Re: Cool stuff in season 1

Actually the answer to that was revealed in the season 2 finale. When Kosh saved Sheridan, he appeared as an angel. This imagery- the idea that Vorlons are demigods- motivates and inspires Delenn for the first half the series.

One of my favorite threads of the show is how she turns against some of her most cherished beliefs to arrive at greater truths and stronger self-determination.

Check out the Lurker's guide starting with the Dream episode and working your way forward, I believe there are some inciteful comments regarding this whole thing

Re: Cool stuff in season 1

Sheridan himself comes up with an explanation late in Season 3... although I'm not convinced he'd figured everything out. "The Man In Between" may not be who he thinks, at that point.
