An awful lot of territory was covered in this episode: the end of the Minbari Civil War, the escalation of the conflict with Earth, and Bester’s machinations with Lyta and (apparently) Michael. Too much? Or was this a rollercoaster ride that wasted no time? Pleasedon’tspoilthanks.
This is where you talk about how we got to all these rumors, bargains and lies.
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.
We have a mess on Mars. We apparently have a mess on Minbar. We’ve had a mess on the station for a while. And now it looks like we might have a previously undiscovered mess left by the Shadows. This is where you can talk about how the heck we got here.
Things are finally heating up on the Earth front. Stephen and Marcus have made it to Mars and are bickering like the married couple they’re impersonating. Ivanova is giving Sheridan some much-needed time off so she can make things happen. Given free time, Sheridan gets into trouble with Garibaldi…and Delenn.
Talk about everything leading up to this episode here.
We learn quite a chunk of information in this episode regarding the Earth-Minbari War and other Minbari history. Look back at this episode and previous episodes in the discussion here.
Gee, things are sure in a mess back home, aren’t they? How the heck did we get here? Talk about the series up to this point but no spoilers!
Well. well. Bester is back. You know that’s never good. And just when the Alliance was celebrating saving the universe.
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.
(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.
