Things have gone from bad to worse for Delenn, while a joyride to preserve his flight pay strands Sheridan in unknown space. What did you think of their misadventures, and about that revelation at the end when General Hague came to visit?
Sheridan flies a plane. Sheridan meets a Narn. Delenn has a meeting. Sheridan has a meeting. Yup, just a run of the mill day on Babylon 5 with absolutely no implications for the rest of the series.
Welcome to your spoiler-free discussion thread for the least explanatory episode title in Babylon 5 thus far.
It’s a slice of life and character study episode, like we’ve had many times already in B5, only it’s in the shadow (ahem) of “The Coming of Shadows.” Whaddaya think about “GROPOS” and how does it fit into the five-year arc?
If you haven’t seen Babylon 5 before, after watching “The Coming of Shadows” the question must be asked: is this the show you thought you were watching? Are these the characters you thought you knew?
Everyone, please welcome Peter David, Writer of Stuff™, to the Babylon 5 writing team. We’re going to have a really good show here, with a 23rd-century game of post-marital The Bachelor and the slimiest ex-psychic on record, who makes Bester look like a cuddly bunny. Give it up for “Soul Mates,” everybody!
You might be forgiven for overlooking that “Soul Mates” isn’t just about Pestilence, Famine and Death–it’s also the conclusion to what Chip has decided to call the Talia Trilogy. What did you think about both plots and what they revealed about the future? It is a pleasure to host your spoilers here…
We have two back-to-back strong Talia episodes, but the real plot to this story is all about Sheridan and Ivanova being charged rent, am I right? Let’s talk about “A Race Through Dark Places” here, but please leave the true five-year significance of the rate hike to the spoiler thread, OK?
Talia Winters. Psi Corps. The future. Have at it.
