Zocalo: Spoiler-Free Discussion of “Conflicts of Interest”

JMS dips his toes into the private-eye genre and gives Garibaldi some trouble. We find one thing that G’Kar and Londo can agree on. And Ivanova puts the finishing touches on the “Voice of the Resistance” broadcast with a bit of help from Stephen and… Zathras?

Talk about the past and present here, but not the future. That’s another thread.
