Jerry Doyle broke his arm for real during the filming of one of the battle scenes. Unfortunately the scene showing him with a broken ankle was filmed before the accident and later episodes ignored the broken ankle and show Jerry with an arm cast, explaining that this was the injury sustained in the fight.

This, and the previous episode, make for a powerful combination
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In so many ways, this is a terrific episode and a wonderful follow-up to the last one. In the previous episode, despite Night Watch being ordered to take control of B-5, Sheridan defied this and arrested the members of this paramilitary organization. Now, in response, Earth Gov has sent an armada to both take control of the station AND arrest Sheridan! This isn't at all unexpected, but means the death of the idea of Babylon 5 as a place for peace. However, Sheridan refuses to allow himself or the station to be taken! Talk about a major conflict!! For those who love the series, this episode and ones like it are the reason that you have patiently watched for so long--the plot threads running through so many episodes are finally coming together and it's exciting to see how this so brilliantly unfolds. A not to be missed episode.
