In "Exogenesis" (#3.7), Marcus has one of his captors open his Minbari fighting pike (staff) by shaking it twice. However, in "Whatever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi" (#4.2) he lets G'Kar handle it and instructs him to press the large, green, triangular button on it to open it. See more »

Dr. Stephen Franklin: Personal log, January 8, 2261. Dr. Stephen Franklin recording. It's been nine days since Capt. Sheridan was presumed killed on Z'Ha'Dum. Nine days since Mr. Garibaldi disappeared on patrol outside the station. Medlab's quiet these days. The League of Non-Aligned Worlds has broken up and everyone's going back to their Homeworlds to prepare for the next stage of war. We know, the enemy is going to strike back. Rumor has it that this time is going to be the last time.

Like the last episode, this one is pretty vague and the action is quite subdued
23 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like the previous episode, this one is pretty low energy and not a whole lot is accomplished. In many ways, it's like a lull between the exciting climax of season 3 and the soon to heat up episodes later in season 4. Here, the problems of the loss of Garibaldi and Sheridan is the main thrust of the shows, but BOTH are not resolved until the next episode--so some might be a bit disappointed since nothing significant occurs in episode 4.2.

Sheridan awakens in a cave deep within Z'Ha'Dum. He's been here for some time and the last memory he has is of his ship crashing into the planet and detonating some nuclear warheads (which SHOULD have vaporized him). An alien named Lorien appears and discusses this with him and sounds like some sort of nice know-it-all mystic. It turns out, he is the oldest sentient being in the galaxy and he has somehow saved Sheridan from certain death.

At about the same time, on the station, G'Kar is frustrated with the lack of progress in locating Garibaldi, so he decides he must dedicate himself to finding him--even though he has no clue as to where to start. So, being G'Kar, he spends much of his time kicking butt and intimidating people until he has some leads.

The episode ends with Garibaldi STILL lost and Sheridan still stuck on Z'Ha'Dum--and it's not until the next episode when they return to B-5. Generally, the writing and acting are just fine, but I found the nice Lorien also a bit annoying. Apparently all-knowing eternals can be forgiven for being so mystical and sounding like Keye Luke from the show "Kung Fu".
