Trivia

Bruce Boxleitner got to show what a professional he is in this episode thanks to the appearance of Penn Jillette. Boxleitner has openly stated at convention appearances that he personally loathes Jilette, saying at Armageddon Melbourne in 2012: "The big one--Jillette?-- I couldn't stand the SOB." See more »

Goofs

Morden's hairstyle is different from when he was last seen alive. However, there is no rule that says that dead people have to appear exactly as they were at the moment of death (if there was, then Morden should have appeared in more than one piece). See more »

Interesting Premise
25 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

The Brakari "rent" a section of Babylon 5 - Which "becomes" part of the Brakari Homeworld for all intents and purposes. Literally AND Figuratively - Much to the chagrin of Garibaldi and Lockley, who just could NOT kick back and enjoy it! All I know, is if I were there, I'd be happy to talk to whoever is brought back - And I would not waste as much time as Garibaldi wasted - Especially with that woman, who he did not get to Boff before she was killed in action.

Even Poor Lennier, had an opportunity to pick the mind of Mr. Morden - But in some ways, Lennier was a SNOB, and was a victim of his own Minbari Religion. Kind of like, a bunch of my Friends who are the same way - Too religious to really take advantage of anything.

I like the premise, and the way the ep unfolds. Very good writing, very JMS - Even though it was written by Comic Book veteran Neil Gaiman. One of the best Season 5 B5 Eps.
