Zocalo: Spoiler-Free Discussion of “The Exercise of Vital Powers”

So, there’s a whole lot of discussion and much is learned in this episode. The frozen telepaths are back and Franklin is trying to do something with them. Good thing Lyta happens by. Garibaldi finally meets his new boss, who just might be more of a super-villain than Garibaldi’s current view of Sheridan. Talk about it all here without going forward.

Episode 79: “Moments of Transition”

Stuffed to the gills with plot, “Moments of Transition” puts a pin in the Minbari Civil War, puts the screws to Lyta Alexander’s career, puts Michael Garibaldi at odds with both his new employer and his (former?) friends, and puts one Alfred Bester in the catbird seat.

James Thomson

Speaking of Bester, that character’s appearance brings independent Mac and iPhone developer James Thomson to the show as our fourth chair, ’cause he really likes Bester. We’re not sure what that says about him and will eye him with suspicion henceforth.

Episode 78: “Rumors, Bargains and Lies”

John “Machiavelli” Sheridan manipulates the alien governments into a fiendish conspiracy against Earth! (Or that’s how ISN might broadcast it these days.) Meanwhile, the Religious Caste is not too thrilled with Delenn making overtures toward Neroon, and bless poor Londo’s heart but now he has to lie about what a good Centauri he’s trying to be. Come join us as B5AG tallies the rumo(u)rs, bargains and lies (oh, my)!
