What happens when a sci-fi show that has made it to the last of its planned seasons lands one of the hottest writers in comics to pen an episode?
You get a Babylon 5 episode that goes to some interesting places.
Here you can talk about Neil Gaiman’s “Day of the Dead” and the things that came before it.
Here we can freely talk about the fallout from Lochley actually selling a part of the Babylon 5 station to the Brakiri when the Drazi had put in an offer first. And also Rebo and Zooty’s stellar careers as politicians, ushering in an era of peace that lasted centuries.
Or, you know, true spoilers from “Day of the Dead”.
Here’s the big thing we commented on as we recorded the podcast: this is the first time in ages, it feels like, that we’ve had the whole core cast involved in the story. What’d you think? No spoilers!
Now that we’re done with the Byron arc, what do you think about the stuff set up in “The Ragged Edge”?
We shall not see the likes of that hair again.
So we can’t spoil anything about Byron’s future, because, well. But what does this coda to the telepath crisis imply for the rest of the season, and is it paid off?
Na’Toth’s back! Yay!
Bester’s back. Um, yay?
What did you think of the predicament Byron’s telepaths have gotten themselves into? And the sticky galacto-political situation? Let’s talk about this episode, but not the next one, here.
Boy, those Interstellar Alliance ambassadors sure can get testy! Where are their grievances, and the telepath crisis, and poor Na’Toth going, anyway?
So there’s some stuff happening on Centauri Prime, and Byron’s made his move. How’s that all gonna work out?
