The Book of G'Quan is NOT for coloring. And it has plot-relevant content.

edit: Aw damnit the site I’m watching it on has the episodes mixed up and apparently that was episode 5 Headsmack Uhhhh so hopefully the real season premiere explains who the heck that dude is, but I don't think e5 spoiled anything

Babylon 5 S2E11: All Alone in the Night

Spoiler:

Sheridan gets kidnapped by aliens and probed. But not that way, we think. And Delenn gets kicked out of Minbari Club.

-Delenn building a wind chime.
-And she might get fired.
-"What could go wrong?" On this show?
-Marshall Teague as "Narn". Lol.
-Lennier sticking up for his crush... boss.
-Ivanova doesn't like being surprised by visiting brass.
-23rd century trash talking at the bar.
-Cheesy composite shot. Those Starfuries are way too big.
-Here comes company.
-At least there's an ejection pod for the command Starfury.
-Yeah, yell at him through space. That always works.
-Uh oh, he's gonna get crispy.
-But he's a trooper, gonna run the modern marathon.
-Aaaaah, General Hague.
[General Hague is more or less how Sheridan's character would have been introduced if Sinclair had stayed on the show.]
-Sawblades and crap. That's never good.
-The Chandelier of the Grey.
-Delenn's not quite Minbari anymore. They won't have her.
-And they booted her out.
-He's a drifter.
-That autopilot sucks.
-Brain implants with flashy lights.
-Uh oh, this one has a sword.
-And a death wish.
-Doc doesn't like losing patients.
-Should we assume cycles are years? Let's go with that.
-There is imbalance in the Minbari force. They're going in for war.
-Well, that's that. "Go back and have your shitty job, mutie."
-Dammit Sheridan. A sword is not a walking stick.
-They want to breed inside your bodies.
-Hague brought the beef.
-Sheridan's turn to have wacky dreams.
-Classic Vorlon obtuseness.
-That sword's not sturdy enough for door prying.
-Yeah, Narns with broken ribs can pry doors.
-Delenn dropped a dime.
-Guns a blazing!
-Random bulb-head goon.
-Into the garbage chute, flyboy.
-Space the prisoners. Yeah, that won't go well.
-Ivanova is super pissed.
-Yes, the Vorlon is the Vorlon.
-Fancy secret device.
-Oooooh, Sheridan had secret orders to watch.
-And dueling conspiracies.
-Uplifting music for skullduggery.
-Sheridan's enlisting the crew.

B5 S2 E11

Spoiler:

- I must've mis-remembered, I thought Delenn was already kicked off of the Grey Council
- "I've updated all my diaries" and now all I can think is Lennier reading Delenn's angsty "Dear Diary" entries as she deals with being a human for the first time
- Sheridan jumping at the opportunity to Sinclair this shit Laughing
- Martian gravity affects home run totals Laughing
- Why would they know who Helen Keller is a few centuries later. I barely know who Helen Keller is
- Pew Pew Pew NOT WITHOUT THE CAPTAIN
- Aw man, the new guy's already dead :/
- Freaky alien dissection time
- Oh shit, did it actually dissect him? Sad
- Wuh oh, Warrior Caste taking over on the Grey Council
- Racial purity, wuh oh
- Ohh, some kind of Shadow research system?
- RIP, guy
- Sheridan's the Hand
- Oh, the Minbari already fucked up the aliens behind these Research Ships
- Wouldn't that sword snap while being lever'ed like that?
- Oh shit, Greys x)
- Yeah, Kosh repeating lines from freaky dream sequences in real life sure isn't scary as fuck
- Why is Sheridan just standing there looking freaked out, I'd grab my trusty pipe and attack Kosh until he told me wtf he's doing in my nightmares
- General Hague just came from the free alcohol, that piece of shit
- Sheridan spying on everyone for Team Good Guys
- Psi-Corp being spooky conspiracy guys
- "In 20 minutes, I'm getting on a ship for Earth." That ship is totally going to explode with him on it
- Awwwww shiiiiii, the Scooby Gang is all in

Yeah. Sheridan was going to be the Earthforce general who started finding excuses to visit the station and conspire with the command crew. The long-term effects will show up in seasons 3 and 4, but for now Sheridan inherits Sinclair's original story arc.

Spoiler:

- War is pretty ugly
- Dohohohoho more Ivanova diplomacy inbound
- G'Kar preying on Delenn's new human emotions to try to get her on his side
- Look at that fucking space crane that brings down passengers, technology has sure gone downhill in the future x)
- Oh boy, a smug psychic alien race that refuses to speak to their inferiors. Ivanova's got this one in the bag
- God, Londo is such an interesting character. He's loving the amount of influence he has now, even though he doesn't want too much, and even though he got it via killing the shit out of a whole bunch of people, but now he kinda hates it because he forgot influence is just people using each other and not necessarily respecting each other
- WHOOPS POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST THE NARN
-
- This fucking look that G'Kar gave Sheridan when he backed off after the "100 years remark" was amazing. You can see him giving up on the entire rest of the universe
- Oh boy, extreme evolutionists
- "A moment of joy in a lifetime of sorrow, take it while you can." Fucking Londo, man
- Londo's a sad man, but he kinda brought it on himself too
- "What have you spent." Holy FUCK, G'Kar
- "For now, we must remain calm." This fucking guy
- Literally G'Kar could've come back around the corner and been like "Whoops, dropped my wallet!" and stumbled on the rest of the Narn's sinister plan to not listen to his rant from 30 seconds ago.
- Awww shiit son, G'Kar's armouring up to go kill some fools
- He's impressed that they live near poor people
- Ivanova just doomed an entire generation of this alien race to a harsher life
- Holy shit, the Narn fight like fucking nerds
- G'Kar's sure gonna be disappointed when peace doesn't work
- "Just a little poison, no worries."
- Oh god, is he going to ask to nail Ivanova
- Holy shit he did rofl
- Garibaldi's Londo impersonation
- Dr Franklin is kind of upset that this whack old alien gets to do the Franky-panky with Ivanova and he doesn't
- Kill'em all, G'Kar
- God dammit, Susie letting her hair down Drooling
- God dammit, Susan, put your hair back up, I can't get it up after that Shudder
- Londo sure making it easy on everyone
- This is so fucked up. Londo started a fucking war and has tons of power and he just wants a friend

-Sheridan being crafty.
-Delenn being guilt-tripped a bit, but she's okay with it.
-Hahahahahahah, he's a horndog. (I told her we seal deals with sex! I think she bought it!)
-His genitals probably look like a sea anemone.
-Ivanova has a plan.
-Well G'Kar, we're giving you some scraps. Now shut up and be grateful.

-Sheridan's not letting this one go.
-Except into the oubliette.
-Ivanova gets to be the station therapist again.
-Franklin had a good nap. He's nice and incisive.
-And we're philosophizing again.
-Another Sinclair speech.
-Haha no, Earth's military isn't *that* good.
-Yaaay, let's join a goverment informant network!
-They spread fake news! Let's rat them out.
-Garibaldi's at his limit.
-And Sheridan pushes past it.
-Going for the teep peep. Bad captain.
-Vir delivering the big boom.
-Sheridan with the loopholes.
-Ivanova joining the Free Morden movement.
-Ha, Talia tying those loops shut.
-But Sheridan has a big pair of scissors.
-And she saw something wretched.
-Those gloves sting.
-Delenn *and* Kosh. Holy shit.
-Delenn being all melodramatic.
-Secret wars against the ancient enemy.
-Just like Sauron!
-The elves journeyed to the west...
-Except for the Vorlons!
-Yes, everyone.
-Z'ha'dum? That name even you hobbits have heard.
-Well, the Icarus didn't blow up.
-But they found the spider people.
-One can only wonder how Kosh and Delenn came by this information.
-Sheridan having himself a moment.
-Uh oh, Sheridan's got a hunch.
-And Morden has "associates" close at hand. Or minders.
-Garibaldi likes his pie crumpled.
-That was the correct answer.
-Yeah, the armband brigade won't be a problem at all.
-Sheridan's got a new obsession.
-And a death wish, thus slotting into Sinclair's story arc.
[This was about the point in the show where Sinclair would learn what happened to his missing fiancee.]

S2E17

Spoiler:

- Space baseball. Did DS9 steal this from the original plot of B5 that they lifted other things from or did B5 lift this from DS9?
- Ha, Sheridan loves going to haunted places by himself
- It mostly always bothered me when alien races on these space shows would refer to their version of human things by mentioning their race to each other. Like Centauri Opera would just be "Opera" to the two Centauri talking about Centauri Opera.
- Yeah, I figured it was just someone playing a prank on Londo
- Spooky dead guys coming alive. Probably got infected by some space parasite and killed himself and now Sheridan has to deal with it
- "Why make history if you don't learn from it." Goddamn, Vir
- Freaky space monster hallucinations?
- Suicide, because he was seeing freaky space-monster hallucinations
- "Look at me, mourning about dead passion like an old drunk. You know what I need? A drink!" Londo rofl
- Sorry dude, I think Londo's gonna save himself rather than you and your family
- It sort of occurred to me that the subject matter in this episode is very odd considering Sinclair's actor who played the role of commander of the station quit because he was seeing things.
- Doc Franklin forcefully orders Sheridan to relax rofl
- Oh man. Political machinations back home threaten Londo, but Londo has the Shadows backing him. Londo's gonna realize his power sooner rather than later and the homefront not doing what he wants may force him to take the reins eventually even though he saw himself die as the Emperor.
- I fucking love Vir's background acting. The dancer catching his eye and realizing he's fallen behind, raising his glass for cheers and getting ignored.
- The old war hero doesn't want to do this shit again
- It's fucking go-time, death-match with a sword Shiny/thrilled
- "INSANITY IS PART OF THE TIMES. You must learn to embrace the madness." STOP. BEING. CONTEMPORARY.
- Crazy captain taking off with an X-Wing
- JESUS Sheridan just starts screaming and his face lights up
- What an emasculating sweater. Sheridan's the Starkiller of the Minbari, but any vengeful Minbari sees him in that Mr Rogers sweater, they're probably just leaving in embarrassment and pretending like they didn't see anything

Babylon 5 S2E17: Knives

Spoiler:

Londo pays a high price for Centauri politics, and Sheridan has a random adventure.

-The baseball program on the holodeck needs work.
-Nice O'Neill cylinder shot.
-Sheridan: Let's go to the scary place. It'll be fun!
-Londo is a terrible singer.
-Vir's not much better.
-What a lovely bromance.
-Uh oh, assassin!
-Haha, nope, just an old friend.
-Death threats must be how Centauri say hello.
-Urza's hair looks like shit. One would think the cloaks would have space for it.
-Sheridan sneaking around again.
-Yep, he looks dead all right.
-That alien has red blood too.
-Something jumped hosts.
-Garibaldi: he's one bleeping dead alien.
-Sheridan caught the woo.
-Londo keeps his booze in a safe.
-But one must not drink from a false grail...
-Ha, Urza just had to comb his hair.
-Dang, no sipping here.
-Sheridan keeps his pet cobra in the urn.
-Oh, a ravenous flying monster. Happens all the time.
-Take that, IDIC!
-Yep, he's hallucinating.
-Uh oh, drunk courage.
-And bordering on sedition.
-Uh oh, public ruin.
-Urza needs a favor from a powerful friend.
-Londo's not quite jumping at the opportunity.
-Captain's having a conniption.
-Doc's relieving the captain for a while.
-Lord Reefer not having any of this honor crap.
-The jug machine is nice enough not to hurl balls at him when he's not looking.
-Well, the B4 thing got covered up.
-Well well, Reefer engaging in some skullduggery.
-Uh oh, a challenge!
-Two hours isn't much time to arrange your affairs.
-Sorry Doc, Captain gone on a holiday.
-"Insanity is part of the times!" Londo gets the best lines.
-Haha, Captain's on a jailbreak.
-Good job fellas, clang those blades together.
-First blood!
-Space turbulence!
-Sheridan barfed his spacetime.
-Come on Garibaldi, you know how to use the claw machine. Get the fluffy bear.
-Got him!
-And they're tired now.
-Not much blood for a gut shot.
-The whole thing was a deliberate sacrifice.
-Sheridan picked up a stray entity.
-Doc's having a scientific orgasm.
-Oh? *Now* you're having second thoughts?
-But Londo's still committed.

Spoiler:

- Hrmmm, do we have a murdering doctor?
- Oh, the missing ship is from the same race that he mysterious deaths are happening to?
- Lennier has been cooking for two whole days? Jesus
- Not great days for the Markab (sp)
- HA, he fell asleep while meditating
- PLAGUE, welp erryone gonna die
- Morality disease
- Wuh oh, air-borne and maybe spreading to other races
- Aw man, Doc Lazarin is gonna get sealed and then they'll watch him die to see how the disease progresses
- "Any violence is to be stopped immediately." As opposed to just like letting it happen for a bit and then stepping in? :p
- Ehhhh the Sheridan/Delenn thing seemed a little toooo like "there's love involved here" but that's Sinclair's gig, came off flat.
- Holy shit, Garibaldi didn't even do the "Freeze" thing, just starts whipping ass and then pulls his gun rofl
- Wouldn't all the security guards near the iso-zone want to be wearing hazmat suits or something?
- Welp, the Doc's infected now
- Ha, Franklin's really not all that different from his father when shit starts going down. Everyone else is like "Oh fuck us, we're plague-dead" and he's like "MOVE PEOPLE, WE'RE GONNA CURE THIS SHIT"
- Fuuuuucking brutal man, everyone died. And Delenn and Lennier watched it all Neutral
- Holy shit, the entire race is dead
- "Nothing changes."

Really good episode.

Lots and lots of death. It's a 1-episode plague on B5.

-Sheridan doesn't want flyboy poking around his secrets.
-Uh oh, too many dead Markabs.
-Oh, I bet there's a problem.
-Dying Markabs, and a nonanswering Markab ship.
-Ivanova shuts down spaceboy.
-Minbari eat on the floor.
-15 stages? Jeeez.
-Yeah Captain, you have to pray over the chow, you heathen.
-Eat with your good hand, not your bum wiping hand.
-And it's a ghost ship. Dun dun duuuuuuh.
-Doc found something suspicious.
-Sorry, Sheridan is in, um, deep meditation.
-Oh darn, duty calls.
-"That asshole snored over my flarn."
-Infection!
-Lesbos? Yeah, lesbos.
-A sinful disease for sinful people.
-And it's infecting everyone.
-Except maybe the dude with the gas mask.
-Sorry kid, he's dead.
-Hey, medical extras!
-Sounds like some rough shit.
-Captain barring the doors.
-He puts the 'ass' in ambassador.
-Self-quarantine. Hothouse effect.
-Markab doc is gonna chart the disease in himself.
-Delenn needs to minister to the sick.
-Uh oh, Delenn and Sheridan giving each other the wuuuv.
-Yeah, kick the Markab and get his disease blood all over you.
-Somebody wrote something on the doorway.
-That much crowding can't be even slightly sanitary.
-And he's got it.
-"Here, eat this food, and read this brochure on the wisdom of our great leader Valen."
-"Faith manages." Ha, that's not much of an answer.
-Yeah, he's going goggly.
-Oh no, it's hopped.
-Doc cracking the whip.
-Well, Lennier has some good finding skills.
-And the kid's sick.
-No one ever quite finishes that final thought before dying.
-There's your clue, Doc.
-And he's got a working theory.
-They're ALL dead.
-Except for the two boneheads.
-Delenn having her angst.
-And now she gets a speech.
-No more Markabs anywhere. Wonder who will loot the planet first?
-Bartender makes an asswipe joke.
-Doesn't seem like a typical Vorlon move, but...

- AHAHAHAHAHA DELENN WANTED THE MINBARI GOSSIP SECTION
- Secret bathroom meetings
- SLUMBER PARTY WITH IVANOVAAAAA
- Oh hey, the telepath from the pilot
- Someone's a traitorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. (I think I saw the spoiler for this already when I was googling wiki'ing actor/actress names)
- Sleeper personality, eh?
- Minbari don't have butts
- I dunnnnnnno man, Sheridan x Delenn seems pretty forced
- Space aliens in the background having a date Grin
- Datttt Ivanova hair flip
- Ivanova's breaking the rule, don't hang out with one person
- Maybe you shouldn't be telling Talia things
- Pew Pew Pew
- Ivanova stfu, this is bigger than your psychic parent issues and you totally look like you're the bad guy when you do that
- Ohoooo, Ivanova has a startling secret
- Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhh, Ivanova's a downlow telepath
- Ohoooo, the visions coming true
- Garibaldi passing off his gun, he doesn't even trust himself, that's so cool
- And then he fucking ruins it by doing a lame joke
- Good job, bridge regular Grin
- WHOOPS TALIA (the spoiler I saw was right)
- Why are they letting Talia go, she killed a dude
- Oooo, Lyta used the sleeper thing to hold back what she knew about Kosh
- So I guess she was written out of the show? Some of her storylines wouldn't make sense to build onto unless she was leaving (like gaining TK powers)

Babylon 5 S2E19: Divided Loyalties

Spoiler:

Babylon 5's first telepath makes a return visit, and she's brought a whole heap of trouble.

-What, you read newspapers? How antiquarian.
-But yes, reporters are assholes.
-Ha, you have to recycle the old one.
-Meanwhile, on Mars...
-There's trouble in the boiler room!
-It's not safe, it's... oh wait, I have to die first. Hang on, let me give you this dossier so I can die. Okay, I'm dead, now you can run away.
-Haha, Garibaldi putting up a warning sign for the carrion-eater's poo trail.
-Aaah, skullduggery in the toilet.
-This is true. Ivanova has not ripped her face off.
-Ooooh! A sleepover!
-Uh oh! Special guest star!
-Flashback time.
-A traitor!!!
-She needs some of that Vorlon feeling.
-I bet the secret agent is in Lyta.
-Ah, Control. We haven't played with that plot thread in a while.
-Don't nobody trust nobody.
-The maglev train puts in an appearance.
-Oh jeez, Sheridan has to explain English idioms.
-He is not smooth at all. Sinclair would have her panties off by now.
-Garibaldi likes his gut.
-Lol, no she won't.
-They're on a first name basis.
-That was not quite a kiss.
-She was expecting...
-Here comes trouble.
-Yep, assassination attempt.
-Tense tense tense.
-Lyta needs to call in a favor.
-Ivanova having a crisis.
-Delenn recruited as a gofer.
-No, she's not okay, you dumbass.
-Well well, Ivanova's a teeper too.
-Flashback time to Sheridan's wacky dreamland.
-It's decision time.
-Well, that was easy enough.
-Ha, he was just playing... or was he?
-Let's "interview" everyone.
-We're getting down to the maintenance crew by now.
-But Ivanova's still a big question mark.
-Nope, wasn't her either.
-Ha, just wander on in and BOOM the sleeper awakes.
-Whoops, she knows some things.
-Well, we could just kill her...
-Let her fall out an airlock...
-A flashback to Vorlon wackiness.
-Different personality, different hairstyle.
-Go ahead Ivanova, rip her face off.
-Ivanova versus love: 0-3.
-Lyta checking in on her old flame.
-Kosh unzipping his pants to give her a peek.

Some background plot stuff:
*Control was originally going to be Takashima from the pilot, but that bit got distributed to Ivanova, Garibaldi's second who shot him in the back, and to Talia.
*Kosh messed around with Talia to record her original personality on that datacrystal. The good guys would have used it to restore her old personality after Control took over.
*It had to be oblique, but yeah, Susan and Talia were munching carpet (and it was the '90s so there was actual carpet). Susan would have gotten Talia back, but it would have been Season 1 Talia before they got into each other's pubes.

Yep, she's gone. Supposedly the actress was a beeyotch, and didn't want to wait another few years to get a good story arc. Lyta Alexander gets that arc instead (which was hers to begin with anyway).
