Gee, things are sure in a mess back home, aren’t they? How the heck did we get here? Talk about the series up to this point but no spoilers!
This would appear to be the Clark regime tricking our beloved B5 command staff and then throwing down a gauntlet. How do they respond? Talk about it here with all the spoilers you want.
Well. well. Bester is back. You know that’s never good. And just when the Alliance was celebrating saving the universe.
Okay, okay, the biggest threat to the known universe is gone and we can all take a breath now, right?
No, now the other dozen things we’ve been putting off are now clamoring for our attention and those stakes are suddenly much higher.
Talk about all the dozen other things that are coming here.
There’s a really obvious Hamilton reference that Chip could drop into this podcast, particularly the last half of a certain King George song, but Erika would kill him.
Besides, this podcast is chock full of content, so there’s no time for song inserts that would antagonize a co-host. Did we mention that the Shadow War is over? Did we mention that the Space Mobster got his? Did we mention that the First Ones are gone? Did we mention that Centauri Prime is saved? And how the heck did this all happen in the space of roughly 45 minutes? For such a momentous episode, we’ve got a lot to talk about in normal and spoiler space, so this was a perfect time to bring Michi Trota back as we review this reset of Babylon 5’s status quo.
And thus an interstellar war ended with a bang and then…a whimper? And we’re left to wonder just whether that satisfied and what comes next. Talk about this episode and events leading up to it here.

It’s special guest star Bryan Cranston! OH EM GEE!
But maybe in the ’90s that wouldn’t be what held your attention. Maybe it was the sight of a very determined Narn breaking his unweakened chains, or a formerly cherubic second banana diplomat killing his emperor. Is that breaking bad or what?
We talk about it.
(Not “The Long Dark,” and not “The Long Twilight Struggle.” This is a completely different “long” episode.)
Alas, poor Cartagia. We knew him too well. So, whaddaya think of this episode? No spoilers, please.
Sheridan’s making plans, and he’s sacrificing future drug kingpins (oh, HI, Bryan Cranston!) to make them happen. How will those plans pan out? Let’s talk.
