Not a terribly important episode, but worthy nonetheless, 20 September 2011
Author: amitjusc from White Plains, NY

The universe of Babylon 5 is rich and full of depth. So many cultures, all with different beliefs on life, death, the soul, the afterlife. The clash of these ideals is nicely displayed in this episode, and profound questions are raised about who is right regarding these philosophical questions in such a heterogeneous universe. And, as with all good sci-fi, it parallels the human condition with our own wildly differing ideas on these questions.

This episode is not without its faults, but this can be expected and forgiven in the first season. The conflict between the soul hunter and Delenn was well done, as was the acting by both characters. There are a couple of episodes that could be skipped in season 1; this is not one of them.
