So, we (almost) began our B5 journey with a tale of this alien species, the Soul Hunters. And we (almost) end the journey with another tale, this one including an alien played by Martin Sheen. Here you can talk about any other previous references to them and other things that affected the action we have in this B5 movie for TNT.
While this movie was created as mostly a stand-alone story for TNT, JMS did include a thing or three that tied into the rest of the B5 universe. Here is where you can talk about what is to come.
…not that there’s much left to be spoiled about! There’s only one TV movie and one episode left in Babylon 5 proper! But if you’re new to the show and want to speculate about those episodes, here you are. For spoilers, go to the other place.
The thing happened. The thing that Spoiler Space in the podcast was made for. The thing that we spent so much time analyzing hints and signals from previous seasons finally happened here.
But maybe this isn’t the best place to talk about it because it’s not a spoiler anymore! So here’s the place to talk about the things that happened in “Objects at Rest” that are covered in the spinoff media…
So many feels: a huge chunk of our cast reaches their points of departure and Babylon 5 approaches the fall of night. JMS’s endgame is in sight.
It’s been a very long journey. Five years, to be exact. But now more of our beloved characters are departing to new stages in their lives. Talk about how they all got here in this thread.
So, there’s only two episodes left after this one. You can discuss this episode and talk about what’s left in this thread.
(Of the show proper. Yeah, we know there’s more tie-in movies and a try at another series. Hush, we’re having a moment.)
So we can all just breathe now that the conflict with Centauri Prime is over, right? You would be wrong, friend! See Lyta go rogue as she’s never gone rogue before. See John and Delenn realize they’re going to have to add a dependent to their tax status once they’re on Minbar.. See Garibaldi reach a point of no return w/r/t his drinking problem. And see Tracy Scoggins as she’s finally given a hell of a lot to do! All this, and an accidental messiah too…
We’re so close to the end. Fortunately, Garibaldi seems to have gotten some help just before the finale. Unfortunately, G’Kar seems to have gotten a few followers too many, and Lyta’s Had Enough. What did you think of this one?
How’s this newly aggressive attitude going to work out for Lyta? Any thoughts on the bun in the oven? Spoilers go here!
