Neat to watch but the plot device itself is pretty silly
9 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Most people have scored this episode a lot higher than I have. I think this is really dependent on whether or not you can buy into or look past the major plot device that guides this episode. It's supposed to be a major surprise, but I guessed what it was LONG before the end of the episode. As for me, I really thought this "surprise" was pretty corny.

Delenn is told by Kosh that she must undergo an interrogation before he is certain that she is "the one" who will help Sheridan in the upcoming Shadow War. The exact details are VERY vague--perhaps in order to heighten the fear that instilled in Delenn about what this will exactly entail.

When she shows at the appointed time and place, she meets an incredibly arrogant and cruel fellow that said he was from 19th century London. He is more an inquisitor than an interrogator and seems to enjoy scaring and physically torturing her. Later, when Sheridan gets wind of it, he rushes to Delenn's aid and is himself put to the inquisition. Shortly after this, the inquisitor announces they have both passed and reveals that he was the historical figure "Jack the Ripper" and he works as an interrogator for the Vorlons to do penance for all the evil he did on Earth. Yeah, sure--it all seemed pretty silly to me! Plus, this idea of Jack traveling through time was already done on the original Star Trek, so it's hardly a novel plot device.
