A little good, a little not so good
9 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like most episodes of BABYLON 5, this one has two main plot lines. The first involves the Captain and his VERY strange behaviors after he came in contact with a dead alien. In a way, he is possessed and is quite unpredictable. While mildly diverting, this wasn't all that memorable. However, the second plot was pretty interesting, as it further shows how low Londo has sunk now that he's aligned with Mr. Morden and his "associates". In this case, an old friend comes to visit the Ambassador and after their initial good cheer, the actual purpose of the visit is explained. Apparently, Londo's partner in genocide (Refa) is planning on destroying Londo's old friend and his family and he has come to B-5 to get his help. When this doesn't work out, the way around this dilemma is found--but at great cost.

The episode does a lot to further explore the good side of Londo. It's a VERY small side and he is, at heart, evil, but showing his humanity was an interesting touch and reminds us that even evil sometimes appears not 100% wicked (after all, Hitler liked his dog).
