You may have been surprised by a couple of turns in this episode: the presence of a genuine-if-creepy Victorian Gentleman and the task Kosh puts before him and Ambassador Delenn. What’d you think? (Please leave your spoilers in the other thread.)
Happy holidays! For your winter revels we give you the consensual torture of one of our heroes, the nonconsensual torture of another, and a profoundly uncomfortable elevator encounter. Ho. Ho. Ho.
The Narn-Centauri war comes to a shocking end, Draal gets a makeover, and John Sheridan takes a shower.
Pretty routine episode, if you ask me.
How long were you expecting the Narn-Centauri war to last? Did you catch that reference to mass drivers in “And Now for a Word”? Talk about “TLTS” here, but leaving spoilers for future episodes will end with your jumpgate privileges being revoked, Shadow-style.
Just a happy go lucky story about the planet Narn, vacation spot of the universe, and that wacky hapless ambassador Londo Mollari. Right?
For a couple of years now, those of us who have seen the entire run of the series have waited for this moment: “What did Steven think of what happened to Talia Winters?”
Sadly, Steven couldn’t join us for this one, but our intrepid moderator Erika reports on the Control Group’s reaction (heh, I just typed that and saw what I did there). There’s much talk of trap doors, flashbacks, continuity and exposition. And Chip inadvertently makes the dirtiest joke in B5AG history.
A long-missing character returns, and revelations pop up all OVER the place! If you’ve never seen B5 before, or if you’d like to make some comments about “Divided Loyalties” itself without taking into account future episodes, this is the place.
Chip here. I’m genuinely not sure what kind of banter to provide in this space. After all, people new to the show see these descriptions too. So if I talk about how this is the [REDACTED] episode in which we see [REDACTED] [REDACTED] I run the risk of spoiling it for everyone. And we can’t even talk about the revelation that [REDACTED] is a [REDACTED] [REDACTED].
Well, I guess that’s what the comment thread is for!
Jason Snell rejoins us, which means we have a better than 50-50 chance of this being a really depressing episode. Many Markab died to bring you this podcast. Plus, in the spoiler section, Chip uses the words “arc,” “crucible” and “stealth” in completely nonsensical order.
The administration of this podcast has determined that the cute and fluffy kittens currently atop our webpage will remain until we have had adequate recovery time from this cute and fluffy episode. Let us discuss the fate of the Markab without spoiling future episodes.
