Excellent episode. It's among my favorite. I love seeing the darker side of Sheridan (which develops and becomes darker as the years go by).

Re: EpDis: In The Shadown Of Z\'ha\'dum

This is a good ep, and a pivotal one. It has Vir's excellent answer to Morden's "What do you want?," and it has Sheridan asking Morden "Who are you." I am giving C's to eps I didn't care for, A's to those I thought the very best, so that leaves this fine ep in the B class, for me.

Re: EpDis: In The Shadown Of Z\'ha\'dum

I do admit I love this ep. It's the first time we really see some backbone in Vir, isn't it? And Sherridan shows what a desperate person might just do given his power, even if it does end up being a horrible abuse of friends and laws. And I almost think of intelligence. If he hadn't seen that brief image of the shadows with Morden, would he have given up, even with what Delenn and Kosh had told him?

And it's interesting to see, in retrospect, how much that very human moment led to the much more final shadow encounter that was later to come. So... I gave it an A.

I like this one a lot too, and also gave it an A. From great little moments like Vir vs Morden, to huge moments like Delenn telling us about the Shadows and the revelation that the Vorlons are one among the First Ones, this is a monumental episode.

Re: EpDis: In The Shadown Of Z\'ha\'dum

This is a top, top episode. I love seeing Sheridan getting reckless, stopping at nothing to find out what happened to his wife, even to the extent of abusing his power and his friends. How far is he willing to go for someone he loves? Sheridan's willing to go all the way- until Delenn stops him with the revelation about the Shadows. This is the moment we've been waiting for all season.

Plus there's a good role for Zack, the introduction of the Nightwatch (which we all missed at the time because we were so engrossed in the main plot) and one of Vir's best moments.

One of the best B5 episodes.

Re: EpDis: In The Shadown Of Z\'ha\'dum

This is the one where Sheridan keeps Morden prisoner and interrogates him about his wife and Garibaldi quits, right?

Yeah, A, definitely.

He wants an answer to that when there are TWO Lurker's Guide links in the first post.

Yes, old Mighty, it's that episode. One of my favorite, too. I see I wasn't alone in giving it an A.
