Nice episode arc
24 September 2014 | by Mischief810See all my reviews

This episode and the two before it lay out a pretty nice story. The Shadows and Vorlons are gone, and Earth has been reclaimed. So the series needed a new story to tell and this arc delivers a decent one.

Byron makes for a heroically tragic character. Lyta, his star-crossed lover, also delivers an almost Shakespearean portrayal of a woman caught in circumstances she can't control but wants to avoid.

Add Walter Koenig's stellar portrayal of the slimy, sneaky Bester and you have three-hour long entertainment.

This arc gets a 7 only because the plot line is quite predictable. You kind of know what's coming before it comes. Also, the special effects-- while good--are not up to par with previous episodes in this season.

This episode arc is good and worth watching, but don't feel like it's must-see. You can always come back to it.
