Trivia

This episode was purposefully scheduled at the midpoint of the series' intended five year run as a payoff for the preceding story action in which the station command's period of growing suspicion and then covert action against the villains of the series has ended and now they have to fight out in the open at last.

Quotes

[first lines]
Londo Mollari: This is absurd! Two hours I have been standing in line. "Our staff are overwhelmed," they tell me. "Too many people to get home or escape here. Rumors of rebellion and war. Even the diplomatic lanes are clogged."...

An absolute can't miss three-episode arc
12 September 2014 | by Mischief810See all my reviews

This three episode arc is your reward for enduring the filler episodes that make up most of the first half of Season 3.

B5 is now hitting on (almost) all the right cylinders. A civil war is upon Babylon 5; Sheridan and his crew must choose sides. Bold, dangerous, risky decisions are made. Heroic actions are undertaken.

There aren't many significant subplots here and the ones that are explored are done so without derailing the main story line.

The arc moves swiftly and, if possible, it's best to watch all three one after the other.

The conclusion of Severed Dreams will have you on the edge of your seat. It is breathtakingly well done. Don't miss these three episodes.
