[Sheridan has been tortured and drugged and is hallucinating:]
Dr. Stephen Franklin: It's great to have you back, captain.
Capt. John Sheridan: Thanks. It's good to be back. I was starting to think I'd never get out of that place.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: Well, I wasn't worried. I knew they couldn't hold you.
Capt. John Sheridan: Well that makes one of us.
Dr. Stephen Franklin: So, you never told me how you got back here after you escaped.
Capt. John Sheridan: What's to tell? I sent word to the Mars Resistance, arranged for a pickup.

Garibaldi's back and the war really heats up
29 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In Garibaldi's last episode, Bester finally revealed that it was the Psi Corps that had kidnapped him and altered his mind to make him their agent. Of course, being an evil telepath, Bester only told Garibaldi this AFTER he no longer needed him and had him immobilized so he couldn't try to kill him when he learned the truth! So in this episode, Garibaldi is naturally distrusted since, as the Psi Corps agent, he betrayed Sheridan. But Garibaldi is anxious to both redeem himself and be once again trusted to help the cause. Reluctantly, Franklin, Lyta and the Mars Resistance agree to use his knowledge and experience to mount a rescue of their beloved leader.

Additionally, Ivanova is now the default leader of the Earth rebellion since Sheridan is in prison. So, it's up to her to mount a major attack on Earth Force ships in the beginning of the end for the evil reign of Clark. Unfortunately, disaster strikes and Ivanova's life hangs in the balance.

All in all, it's a very exciting episode with a lot occurring and very dramatic changes in the overall plot. It's a not to be missed episode and one of the better shows of season four.
