Sheridan is told he has pain givers would cause an increasingly severe shock the closer he got to the interrogator beginning from a couple feet away, yet several times the interrogator comes within less than a foot of Sheridan with no effect. Evidently, that's how the pain givers work - the victim cannot approach the interrogator, but the interrogator can approach the victim without setting off the givers.

OK one reviewer found the episode interesting.The other was shocked.I thought it was something that could have been dealt with in 15 minutes and then the show could have moved on to something more interesting to watch.I hate anything having to do with torture cause it just bores me like nothing else can.Senseless violence bores.I wish they had finished the war in season 5 cause now things get hurried in season 4 and 5 was mostly very boring and we lost a few very good actors who either vanished or got replaced by non-interesting ones.When you see this for the first time watch it cause you need it when you have seen it and are watching the show again skip this one cause it will make you give the wrong idea about Babylon 5 and you may not want to continue watching it which would be a mistake.
