User Reviews

One of the more interesting episodes of season five
23 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Londo arrives on Centauri Prime demanding answers, as he now is convinced that his people are responsible for all the attacks on neighboring worlds. However, despite his best intentions, he's in WAY over his head and he and G'Kar are thrown in the dungeon. At the same time, Drazi and Narn leaders are pushing for a swift and decisive attack on Centauri Prime to end the war once and for all.

A lot takes place and the stage is set for even more action in the next episode. Throughout the first half of season five, BABYLON 5 has been a big disappointment, as there wasn't much purpose or suspense. It was obvious that this was originally planned as a four season series and the fifth one was hastily slapped together when Turner Broadcasting unexpectedly renewed it. Fortunately, the dull episodes abated for a while and this one is worth seeing.
