[first lines]
Ben: Garibaldi. Garibaldi, I got your message. Okay, fine. So another pointless meeting. Here I am.
Michael Garibaldi: [to previous client] Why don't you take off. I'll call you if I find out anything, all right?
Ben: Three weeks, Garibaldi. Three weeks since I asked you to help find my daughter. I haven't been able to eat, I haven't been able to sleep since we were separated during the raid on the Aris Colony. And all I get from you is silence, except when you want more money or information.

Pretty good--but not a whole lot of excitement or action
26 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Because BABYLON 5 is a series that looks more like a long extended movie or soap opera, many episodes feature relatively mundane plots that are necessary to transition to one main theme to another. Now that the Shadows and Vorlon have left the galaxy, the next theme to be addressed is the dictatorship of President Clark and B-5's efforts to remove him from office. This episode in one to get the ball rolling towards this eventual conflict.

Since Clark took complete control of Earth, ISN News has been his propaganda machine--churning out false and misleading stories that seek to justify his iron-fisted rule as well as discredit B-5. So, Sheridan decided in the last episode that the station needs to offer a news show to counter these lies. Starting in episode 4.12, Ivanova has begun broadcasting the truth.

In addition, the other main theme of this episode is an attempt by Sheridan to get two life-long enemies, G'Kar and Londo to show some solidarity in supporting the new fledgling alliance. But, G'Kar is understandably bitter and it seems unlikely this alliance could ever occur.

All in all, a decent episode, but also one that COULD be skipped, as both plots are dealt with in the previous as well as future episodes.
