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.
Our first-time viewers are scratching their heads and asking, “What’s next?”
We know what’s next. And we can talk about it all here.
(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.
While figures long regarded as godlike reveal themselves to be petty, the petty aspire to godhood. And that, Charlie Brown, is the true meaning of the episode title. Or whatever. Look, here, have a spoiler-free discussion thread.
(The thread descriptions can’t all be winners, OK?)
Road trips to Narn, massing fleets, scheming captains–you’d think something’s about to happen.
Sheridan summons, Garibaldi shrink-wraps, Marcus confesses, Ivanova discovers, Delenn reunites, G’Kar screams, Vir threatens, Cartagia washes, Zack retrieves, Lyta confronts, Kosh abuses, Londo waits. Bit of a day.
All right, all right, we apologize. It’s not a story about Sheridan receiving a jury summons after all. Hey! No spoilers!
Where did Lorien get that cool* ship after all? Howzabout Sheridan’s miraculous return and what that portends? Howzabout the future of the Shadow War? Spoil away in this thread.
(*) The management notes that “cool” is an entirely subjective term and that at least one** of the podcast hosts disagrees on the coolness of the ship.
(**) All right, it’s Chip.
OK, so a lot of stuff happens in this not-very-eponymous episode! We find out a bit more about whatever happened to Sheridan, Delenn prepares to go to war, G’Kar trips up, Londo offers a deal, and we learn very little about whatever happened to Mr. Garibaldi. We delve into why Season 4 feels different this time and who’s more insufferable: Lorien or Kosh.
