[first lines]
Lord Refa: Londo, good to see you again.
Londo Mollari: And you, Refa, you look well.
Lord Refa: Exciting times, Mollari. They fire the blood and the mind.
Lord Refa: [to guard] Leave us.
Londo Mollari: Refa, the emperor?
Lord Refa: Is out among his people, basking in their almost-sincere adulation. He has left things here in the hands of his court, which can function just as well without him as with him. Sometimes better.

The Dam Breaks in This Episode!
9 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Up until this time, the battling between the Narn and Centauri is somewhat limited--a skirmish here a skirmish there. But in this one, the entire battle comes to a major head, as BOTH the Narn and the Centauri have a plan to radically change the course of the war. Exactly who will prevail and how is something you'll have to see for yourself. This episode is well-acted, exciting and kept my attention throughout. Plus, finally, after hints and pieces of the puzzle have been dropped throughout the last two seasons, all-out war is finally here--and the other races, characteristically, do nothing and try to pretend the galaxy isn't in total chaos!
