Babylon 5 S4E6: Into the Fire

Spoiler:

The Shadows and Vorlons pack up for Del Boca Vista.

-Woooo, Hubble space background.
-There's a glowy space booger.
-Meanwhile, at A Bao A Qu...
-Everyone stay very close so we can be damaged by explosions.
-Yaaay, we blew up the watchtower.
-All headed toward Endor.
-Title drop. Before the title.
-Well now, that timing works out.
-Back on the doomed world.
-12 hours to kablooie.
-Mister Morden, your bathroom privileges... have been revoked!
-Delenn brought the brown pants today.
-Yep, he's a Maia.
-They journeyed to the unknown lands of Valinor.
-Such is the beautiful Doom of Men.
-Oops, his secret's out.
-Londo's not taking this well.
-Of course it does. Just imagine what "ahshit" means.
-Lots and lots of easy targets.
-Well, he got better.
-The guards backing up...
-And Londo figured it out.
-Bravado isn't Morden's strong suit.
-Hahahahaha, don't give him ideas.
-That was a big kaboom.
-Everyone par-taaaaay!
-Mine the asteroid field, just like old times.
-There is going to be a ton of radiation from all these nukes everyone is popping off.
-Flashback time.
-Well, Vir got his wish.
-And his wave.
-But Londo missed chance #2 of 3.
-Bring in the heavy guns.
-I'll bet that gets someone's attention.
-Uh oh, Vir figured it out.
-But this isn't how Londo dies, so something will come up.
-Yep, there's Londo's get-out-of-jail card.
-And that was chance #3.
-Possession time.
-X2.
-Lorien, resident simulcast teep.
-Oh, Doc gets to show up, sort of.
-I think I'll vote for a third-party candidate!
-Show's over, Synergy.
-Pick a card, any card.
-This is a Sinclair speech.
-Ha, Morden gets to be the Shadow voice.
-There it is. 3+ years of mystery and intrigue culminates in the 30 year old manchild kicking his parents out of their house.
-And they obeyed.
-Bye bye magic space peeps.
-Poof. Out he goes.
-All's well that ends well, eh Londo?
-Ah, the Dawn of the Third AGE of MANKIND.
-Well, we threw the ring back into the volcano, and we still have about 40 episodes to go. Time to uneventfully wander back to the Shire.

How was this NOT the series finale?

Like I know the Psi-Corps/Earth Conspiracy is still a human problem, and Garibaldi is still twitchy, but that pretty neatly wrapped up most of the long-standing issues happening in the show for all of the other races and participants in Babylon 5 o.O

Yeah, this was originally supposed to be something like episode 15 or so, with the wrap-up and fallout taking up the rest of season 4 and part of season 5. Season 4 ended up being compressed a lot, which causes problems later on.

Babylon 5 was part of a syndication package, but the first-run syndication market fell apart in the mid-90s, so season 4 was expected to be the last one.



Bwahahahahaha. But the crown should be a pseudo-Nazi banner.

- Hrm, is Garibaldi going to be the "evidence" of the false flag?
- I dunno, Bester, people are already freaked out by Lyta being with the Vorlons, I don't think "Hey guys, she kicked a puppy once" is going to do much to her reputation
- Z'HA'BOOM
- "Hi" *Red blink*
- Bester actually being upset that he sent people to die, huh

- "I was passing by on my way to sleep. Then I got hard and WHOA HEY, there you are." Ducat is the worst

Spoiler:

Random shit on Mars, and Delenn makes new enemies.

-Haha, Sheridan's a creepy alien slumlord.
-Good job, secret lady. Stand in view of the camera.
-Uh oh, false flag operation.
-And the Minbari are slacking off.
-Looks like trouble, all right.
-Dang, everybody getting ganked.
-Yeah dude, your wummin can take care of herself.
-She's not quite happy.
-Ah, he's got a plan.
-Yeah, he's only got eyes for half-Minbari babes.
-Gotta pay for that new set we only used for four episodes.
-Yeah, let's do our own propaganda. Ours will be cooler, because we roll like that.
-Explaining things to Delenn that she already knows.
-Setting the stage for Minbari-on-Minbari kerfuffling.
-Gotta get the rabble in order.
-Exiting into glowy space.
-Translation: "Shit is all fukt up in here."
-Oh no, he entered the static field. No signal can escape.
-Lennier forgetting who his wummin is.
-Whoops, there's an inside man.
-Dr. Smooth doing his thing.
-Yeah, Doc's gonna get some.
-Come along to your doom, gullible Minbari.
-Interdimensional trippiness. The Shadows were better at it.
-Walk oddly to disguise the leftover Power Rangers villain costume.
-Awwwww, his family died so he got recruited by the scummy weirdos.
-Ha, nope, they're from Z'ha'dum.
-Ooops, he knew her already.
-Time for some shootin'.
-Well, the computer can do it.
-Hahahaha, everyone lean together!
-Somebody's not going home.
-Of course the collaborator got whacked.
-Uh oh, Vengeful Delenn is back. Gonna start another war.
-Well, that was some nice explodium.
-I'm sure this will be the last we ever see or hear of those guys.
-Sheridan doing that slick hair look, playing for the camera.
-Sorry dude, no snoo snoo for a while.
-Sucking up to the protagonists.
-And summing up the first half of the season.

S4E12

Spoiler:

- Yo, Garibaldi. I'm gonna rudely interrupt what you're doing
- Dawwww, he's still got a human heart, 1/3rd the fee and making the father suffer longer so he could see them come back together
- I'm still waiting for great sadness and for history to end tbh
- If you need power, why don't you ask planet-guy
- Ahahaha she didn't think about the planet-guy (I don't think Ivanova would overlook that tbh)
- And the gun you hide in your sock drawer
- Using Looney Tunes as foreshadowing
- It's a bit much to have Garibaldi hate his old security team because they took his guns, but I guess they can explain that away by the psychic conditioning if they really wanted to
- Zathras! TIME PARADOX?
- Ten Zathras with slight pronunciation differences (except you can't hear it) because why not Laughing
- Ivanova's actress is really good at goofy-quick emotional reactions
- Crisis-Management Zathras is lonely rofl
- He talks to dirt rofl
- Sometimes, the wall, sometimes the ceiling, but dirt is closer. Lay that guilt on thick, Zathras Laughing
- Oh right, the ex
- I wonder if this is just more Psi-Cop conditioning plots
- Holy shit, Narn G'Kar and Centauri Londo, haven't seen them in ages
- Psychic Virus
- Garibaldi has a gun now Grin
- How did he not see him?
- She's ready to jump on Garibaldi's D right now in the vent
- I like how Zack uses his first name when calling the med lab
- She totally sent him nudes and he deleted it
- The voice of Edgars is familiar, feels like I've heard him before (and he did a bunch of voices for 90s superhero cartoons, so its from there)
- Ahahahaha, the Voice of the Resistance picture of Ivanova

B5S4E13

Spoiler:

- So Captain, let me awkwardly say everything that happened last episode in one sentence
- And how Sheridan's laughing to himself, he's cracked
- Zack's actor is laughing at the camera crew because no one expected the fist slam
- Discussing important political and military maneuvers and arguing about the taste in comedy
- Minbari street fight, Nerds vs Jocks incoming
- Is Sheridan literally going to make them all jealous to convince them to take the White Stars
- Uh oh, the nerds are gonna blow themselves up and take Delenn with them
- He siphoned it, like you siphon gas from a car?
- False-flagging the League of Non-Aligned Worlds
- I mean, the Shadows were kind of already invisible enemies
- Ahahahaha, Sheridan played them perfectly
- Fuuuck, Neroon played Delenn too
- I like the contrast between Sheridan obviously playing for comedic effect to disguise Neroon playing the Religious caste for real effect

Babylon 5 S4E13: Rumors, Bargains and Lies

Spoiler:

Sheridan runs game, and Delenn gets gamed.

-Lounging in the lounge.
-Marcus is special; he gets to eat with the command staff.
-Nice expressionist poster behind the captain there.
-He's just thinking of how Delenn liked to tickle his little captain.
-Meanwhile, in wacky space...
-Oh, this is going to be the Minabri civil war episode.
-"Well, I grew up in the slums of the northern polar regions, so I don't miss the beautiful spire cities of the oppressor class at all, Delenn."
-Oh, Londo gets a scene.
-No, they're not. Reebo and Zooty are dweebs.
-Here comes trouble, power walking on in.
-Lots of posturing.
-Smoking buildings and random people running about. It's war all right.
-Captain Obfuscation doing his thing.
-Those space rocks offend me. Blow them out of the stars, if you don't mind.
-All of your blood, We just like to, um, have some.
-A plot!
-The purple balls of doom.
-The plot revealed.
-Lots and lots of speculation.
-They could be in our water and in our toilets! Well, not the methane-breathers' toilets. Those are too nasty for anything.
-Hey, we're at the Minbar Planetarium.
-Now, load Minbari Porn Sonata #37.
-He has a sturdy skull. One more concussion won't matter now.
-Oh, um, we should, ah, disarm the poison bombs soon?
-Good old Lennier.
-Neroon being meek and respectful. He must have really got whacked hard.
-Captain Briar Patch at work.
-Congratulations, guys. You've just invited an unaccountable paramilitary force to cordon off your systems.
-Good thing Lennier's beliefs are okay with removing parts of organs.
-Come on, you can do better than a test pattern intro.
-Lennier getting into more trouble.
-"Zeon is exhausted!"
-Well, that's a nice intro to the next episode.

B5 S4E14

Spoiler:

- "Neruun, good. I've been standing over this map with one hand dramatically for 30 minutes now, waiting for you appreciate it."
- Huh, I kind of actually sympathize with the Warrior Caste leader. These religious nutcases getting them into wars just because instead of doing wars when it's necessary. It helps that I know that Valen/Sinclair and their holy proclamations were legit but still, if you're just some warrior caste flunk you're probably going "WTF, GUYS?"
- So Neruun is eventually gonna face-turn and do what Delenn wanted him to do all along
- "I have a life, man." Bester Laughing
- "Humanity is my business!" Cheeky fucker, this Bester
- Well, that was a quick Civil War
- "I want your body." This Bester guy is pretty smooth, she hasn't even thrown her drink in his face yet
- There's a clause in the contract against murder
- Ask her to move in Zack
- Zack working against Garibaldi working against Bester and poor Lyta's caught in the middle
- She gave him her vintage Harry Potter wand. He's never getting her love, so I guess it's something
- God damn, ancient Minbari were hardcore. Playing a game of chicken with a giant magnifying glass burning them to death to determine who leads
- "THIS IS SPARTAAAA"
- Oh, so Neruun didn't betray Delenn?
- Good guy Neruun, you saved a cast member
- Holy shit that tan on Delenn
- Bester putting Garibaldi further on the path "he needs him to follow"
- Delenn instituting socialism, WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE
- Uhhhh that's a bit hardcore there, Sheridan

Babylon 5 S4E14: Moments of Transition

Spoiler:

Lyta wishes there was a dole, and the Minbari work out their shit.

-Sleeping in da bed.
-Garibaldi's new benefactor making a call.
-Ha, Garibaldi's a drug mule.
-Sheridan in da bed too.
-Missing his wummin.
-Yeah, Minbar's a wreck.
-The other refugees are equally wretched.
-Lyta needs a job.
-And she's not gonna get one.
-Ha, boss man has a beard.
-Neroon's not quite up for this martial spirit.
-ha, here comes the sludge trawler.
-Fiber is quite important.
-Sorry dude, they're not literate.
-And Garibaldi is a bit touchy today.
-Delenn's throwing in the towel.
-Lyta not enjoying his company.
-Bester making an indecent proposal.
-Hahahaha, he just whips out the contract.
-Trying to reverse engineer Vorlon wetware.
-No sale.
-Look who's taking a peek.
-Random dude transcribing their chatter.
-Set us up Delenn the bomb.
-Sorry Lyta, you're getting gentrified.
-Lyta's getting indecent proposals from all over.
-Maybe Garibaldi can take her on.
-Bester causing trouble again.
-Delenn has a plan.
-Giving her will to Lennier.
-Grandiose speeching.
-Delenn speeching.
-And turning on the ceiling light.
-Aha! It's a trial of courage.
-Yeah, Delenn got jacked up by the Vorlon inquisitor. This is a cake walk for her.
-Ha, he's a coward.
-Yep, he failed.
-Ha, he was in on it.
-And he makes the save.
-Just before crispifying.
-Bossman pulling rank.
-Yep, she's gone.
-Jeez, Bester has a log?
-Fire pillar crisped her a bit too.
-Time to fix the committee.
-The triumph of the Almighty Janitors!
-Delenn installs the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
-And she's off for nookie.
-Blowing up the hospital ships.
-It's ass-kicking time.

S4E15

Spoiler:

- Awww shiii, the war room is back in action
- First time we've seen Vir in weeks
- Hrm. This is slippery-slope kind of business from Sheridan. He's strong-arming the alien worlds with Minbari protection to get what he wants, changing the terms of the deal, etc
- "All of you will be hurt." But will they? Earth is kind of far-flung from most of their worlds and Earth kind of just seems to want to stick to itself
- Londo's setting up a meeting with G'Kar?
- "Trust Ivanova, Trust Yourself, Anyone Else, Shoot'em."
- "If they turn around, they'll expose their flank to the enemy." But what if they flew up or even down instead?
- Pew pew pew
- G'Kar will sign his name to the joint statement, but not on the same page. The pettiness lives!
- Uncle Susie Wants YOU
- Garibaldi going full heel-turn on Mars?

Babylon 5 S4E15: No Surrender, No Retreat

Spoiler:

Sheridan opens up the can labeled "whoopity ass".

-Here comes the ass-kicking legion.
-Power walk.
-Hey, it's Vir.
-Ah, a meeting of the League of Disgruntled Aliens.
-Calling in the favors.
-No so much favors as blackmail.
-Sending everybody out.
-Aha, tactical info.
-Doc gets a mission.
-Ivanova being all pensive.
-Drop that title, yo.
-Naah, he's out of the loop.
-Fancy pants flying around.
-Basic distraction ploy.
-"Imperial forces have entered the base. Imperial forces have ... "
-Well, why did you come?
-Okay, Londo's just dumping his emotional labor.
-He does get the best lines.
-Throwing in with the Rebel Alliance.
-Out of guilt.
-And G'Kar says no.
-Time for the motivational speech.
-Yeah, announce the commander's ship.
-Moving the pieces.
-Here comes fun.
-Sheridan making the plea.
-Very loud space battles.
-Second isn't going along.
-Haha, but the crew did.
-No forward batteries on that one.
-And Captain Braggadocio gets relieved.
-Clean space debris.
-Lol, Sheridan votes for democracy.
-G'Kar reconsidered.
-Just had to use the right glass shape.
-Two out of four's not bad.
-"Many" lol.
-And Garibaldi's out.

S4E16

Spoiler:

- I'm hoping we get a full explanation for the Garibaldi heel turn soon, this storyline is kinda dragging
- This sinister minion guy is pretty good though. B5 casting has a way of finding people who project themselves really well in these roles
- Stress fee if she has to re-live the attack. Don't know what it is, but I like little details like that in B5
- And now a bigger stress fee for being the key to awakening the Shadow Telepaths
- "Ey gurl, let's bang on the bosses desk while he's not here"
- Ted Turner still alive a few hundred years in the future
- Oh boy, Corporate Political Coup vs Military Coup, this got a bit more interesting again
- Ha, I knew he'd be petty enough to touch everything
- Yikes, Garibaldi's gonna get torture/interrogated
- This actress playing the telepath sort of holding her facial expressions while Garibaldi is going off on telepaths but sorta not to is just awesome
- "Everybody lies." Mr Garibaldi watched his House reruns in the future
- That lie about not loving Turner's wife is gonna come back to haunt him
- Oh man, the Psychic gets shot, sinister machinations at work
- Uhhhhh that was an interesting reaction and usage of psychic powers from Lyta when the guy tried to kill himself
- The exercise of vital powers
- War of Information. B5 again being a little too contemporary for a 20 year old show
- THE JIHAD PARTY WOW
- The Russians in 2013 silent
- The Iraqis and the French incoming
- The Thought Police
- Maybe you guys should put down the corporate oligarchy too, Garibaldi
- Probably shouldn't trust all the defections, guys
- There could be a nerd still hiding somewhere, Stephen
- Franklin stutters on "physiological changes" because Lyta also underwent them and it's awkward, detailssss
- Huh, now they're going to Mars and there's something involving Psychics that Franklin doesn't like (but at least he can put the Franky-panky on Lyta)
- She's plotting a coup of her own, Michael
- "I just thought I'd see how things were going with our freaky torture experiments."
- Oh shiiii, Garibaldi giving up the goods on how to track Papa Sheridan
