[first lines]
Capt. John Sheridan: Ivanova, good. I was just about to call you. I've been going over these reports trying to figure out how we're going to get along with all our supply shipments from Earth cut off by the embargo. We've got two, maybe three months of reserves.

Pretty good stuff
25 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In some ways, watching this episode is like watching two trains about to collide--you KNOW it's about to happen and you don't want to see this, but there is nothing you can do about it. In this case, you see Garibaldi is throwing his life away and is going to hurt poor Captain Sheridan but you are helpless about it.

The other plot involves a rendezvous with B-5 representatives and resistance leaders on Mars. I really liked this part of the show, as this potential alliance takes a VERY, VERY strange and unexpected turn (find out exactly what it is yourself)--it was majorly cool. About the only aspect of this and the next episode I DIDN'T like was the fact that Franklin MUST eventually "get it on" with the female leader of the resistance--you know with his track record from previous episodes they eventually MUST become lovers. That Franklin! What a dirty old man!
