G'Kar fears for his life while Babylon 5 hosts a festival of religion
30 May 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

As this episode takes place Babylon 5 is hosting a festival so that the various species can showcase their dominant religions. While this is going on two new ambassadorial aides arrive; Lennier and Na'Toth who will work for Delenn and G'Kar respectively. The latter's introduction doesn't go too well as she meets G'kar moments after he receives a message from a dying enemy stating that he will be killed by somebody close to him during the next two days; understandably he is somewhat paranoid. Elsewhere Commander Sinclair is reunited with an old flame; they both know they should probably stay apart but inevitably they don't.

This episode was rather fun; the question of what was going to happen to G'Kar was handled well; there are a couple of twists leading up to a satisfying resolution. While most viewers probably won't expect the assassination to go ahead it was hard to be certain as we are still early enough in the series for an apparently established character to be written out... after all key characters are still being introduced. Sinclair's romance is a pleasant aside; it will be interesting to see how it progresses. The alien religions are what one might expect; the Centauris' is something akin to a drunken Roman orgy while the Minbaris' is rather more solemn. I liked how, during Lennier's introduction we were reminded that Delenn has secrets that she doesn't want others on the station to know about. Overall I'd say that even though this wasn't an action packed episode it was still pretty good.
