Did You Know?


In the episode The Day Of The Dead (season 5 episode 8), Mr Morden (who is dead) visits Lennier and tells him that he will betray the Anla'shok. In this episode, it is revealed that his betrayal comes from abandoning Sheridan to die rather than rescue him from the toxic fumes from the space he is trapped in, believing that if Sheridan dies, he will have a chance to win Delenn's heart. He realizes his mistake, but it is too late since Sheridan escapes on his own and Lennier runs away, never to return. See more »


Sheridan says repeatedly that there is no way to be sure of Lennier's state of mind, conveniently ignoring the fact that a Minbari telepath could give him that surety. See more »


[first lines]
President John Sheridan: So, you couldn't sleep either.
Capt. Elizabeth Lochley: Not really. I hear Delenn came back from Minbar last night.
President John Sheridan: Yes. The new headquarters for the Alliance are just about finished. We can go anytime.

A rather slow and maudlin episode
23 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this isn't a terrible episode, it really does go at a snail's pace and is pretty depressing to watch. I really think that too often many television series would be better off just ending instead of lingering and milking it for a few last drops. While much of the episode actually annoyed me because of this, I did really like the way it all began with Garibaldi having his first scheduled meeting of his new board of directors--this was a hoot. Unfortunately, after that it just drug on and on as everyone said their goodbyes--plus some of the best characters had already left in the previous episode. The only exciting part was with Lennier. In an event that seemed totally out of left field, Lennier betrays the Rangers and his allegiance. The how and why you'll have to see for yourself, but it DID fulfill the ghost of Morden's prophecy (Season 5, episode 8 "Day of the Dead").

Overall, a competent and interesting episode that just drug on too long with the sentimentality. If you hate all this depressing stuff, then be sure NOT to watch the next (and final) episode.
