A decent episode that foreshadows whats to come.
25 June 2008 | by (Tulsa, OK) – See all my reviews

While the story seems to be a simple non-arc episode, it actually drops hints at a far more complex story/background of the B5 world. You of course don't know this until you move on to other seasons, so this is one you need to see again after you have explored later B5 episodes. All the seemingly random unconnected side plots and information tidbits all link together. Sheppard is creepy as the Soul Hunter, and the storyline is well paced. I really hated B5 Season 1, mainly because I thought Michael O'Hare was a terrible actor and detracted from the show. Even Bruce Boxleitner could out-act the guy so thats pretty bad. The Soul Hunter threat becomes important later on when you see them again in the B5 "movies".
