    I think this was the episode where Londo says “who said Mirbari never lie”, a nice tie in to the episode when Lennier lies for Londo over the gambling cheating incident. 🙂Report

    Back over to Sheridan and Ivanova and Londo. Anatomically correct doll joke. Sheridan agrees to pull the dolls. Londo lets spill that Minbari might lie to protect honor, as he knows from experience.

    There are two things I like about this scene:

    1) It reinforces the fact that aliens are different. The Centauri have different ideas about the visibility of genitalia in art than modern humans (or at least the majority of modern humans that made and watch this show).

    2) It turns a throwaway gag from the B plot of an episode last season into a plot point for the A plot in this episode. Little details like that add weight to your world-building.Report

    I think the best thing about this episode is that we start to see a darker side to the Minbari. You knew from the war it was there. but this goes beyond anger. How we see that there is a strong belief in purity of the race.Report

      Overall, Babylon 5 does a good job of ensuring that there are no “good guy” or “bad guy” races. The Minbari talk a lot about honour and service, but they have a major streak of xenophobia and their attitude to honour is as hypocritical as anyone’s.Report
