    One of the interesting things about this show is that it was largely planned in advance, which allowed them to have prophecies and visions from the future that (generally) come true. Typically, when a show deals with prophecy, it is either extremely vague and constantly reinterpreted, such as Angel’s Shanshu Prophecy, or else it is resolved in a single season. With B5, things typically get a proper payoff, even if it comes a few seasons later.

      The Shanshu thing in Angel was garbage. Given the number of interpretations, you’d think the wording was “A person in a place with do things and stuff.”

      Mordin’s visit is the first episode where you get the idea that the plot will really be going places, this episode is where you get the idea that the plot actually knows where it will be going.Report

    I am a sucker for shows with foresight. I loved this episode. I love it told us there is a true plan for the series.

    Is it just me, or shouldn’t anyone answer Garibaldi’s question with “fasten, then zip”? Zips are easier to do up if both ends of the zip are fixed relative to each other and fasteners are easier to do up if you have more room to fiddle with the fastener. Fasten and zip is just easier than zip then fasten.

    Also, as funny as Sinclari’s prank was, it is a seriously dick move to prank your subordinates. What can Ivanova do in response? He’s her commanding officer.

      I think you are taking it too seriously. I would hope that Ivanova would be able to play a prank on Sinclair without him getting his feathers all ruffled. If he would, then I would agree with you.Report
