Babylon 5 S4E16: Exercise of Vital Powers

Spoiler:

Garibaldi meets his new boss, not at all the same as his old boss.

-More of the '90s static.
-Garibaldi has a log.
-And he got his ass to Mars.
-Fake Morden again.
-Clean, cut, and chiseled. That's how Edgars likes his men.
-The transit tube rings have the wrong angle.
-Doc playing with the popsicles.
-Doc needs a stim, but he can't do that anymore.
-The Captain's ways are not for mere mortals.
-Lyta playing in Shadow brains.
-Oops, didn't expect him.
-Garibaldi, Alfred. Alfred, Garibaldi.
-Ha, "interesting weekend" with leather and special rooms.
-Your private cell has been prepared.
-Yeah, let's have this conversation in a crowded hallway.
-Everybody wants Lyta to do special favors.
-Garibaldi gets the special routine.
-And he gets to extemporize.
-And a nice gotcha.
-One final payment.
-Whoops, flashback time.
-Lyta got some powaaahs.
-Title drop.
-Haha, the Jihad Party.
-Lots of political exposition.
-And some conspiracies.
-Oh yeah, back to the warpath.
-And cut to the zoned-out reaction.
-Always some crap on Mars.
-"I'm trying not to eat because there's no toilet anywhere around here."
-Sorry dude, you were an emotionally unavailable boyfriend.
-Checking in on the esper kids.
-Waiting for the last stages of mute boogerface syndrome to kick in.
-If you're really in, kill this kitten.
-Or the Captain's dad.
-Back to the tube.
-Still didn't get the perspective on the rings right.

B5 S4E17

Spoiler:

- Wow, they sure got Papa Sheridan quick
- Ceasefire awrrriii-AGAMEMNON
- Maybe listen to Cole and don't get on the Agamemnon
- For a sec there I thought the Martian Underground was the Agamemnon and I was like "damn man, Earth stone age spaceships"
- If you were the Martian resistance, wouldn't you close the front door and go "NOPE" because they're dropping all this weird shit on your lap at once?
- Yeah, Sheridan, listen to your old crew, don't do it!
- I like Susie Q changes her tune when she founds out she's fleet commander, like "Oh yeah, well it's probably a trap but I guess you gotta try, right? [WHERE MY SHIPS AT]"
- "Did you..." "No," *Stephen lightens up a bit* "... that would've been too quick." *Stephen's concerned again*
- I legit just thought I heard Delenn say "QAPLA" like she was wishing Ivanova a good war
- I like how Garibaldi is basically programmed to hate Sheridan at this point but he still calls him "Captain"
- What an awfully dramatic kinda-bad tranq, he literally punched a dude through a window before it worked
- "I want the truth." "Fair enough. Wade?" "We're engaged..." and I snickered because for a second I was like "All this for gay marriage?"
- A war between Mundanes and Teeps is coming, and it turns out it's already ongoing
- Oh man, virus'ing telepaths out of existence. Couldn't that jump to alien races too?
- And they're telling this to Garibaldi, who's probably a Psi-Corp sleeper agent. God damn, everything's coming together
- That was an interesting interruption of a sentence when Ted Turner was leaving
- SNEAKY WIFE HEARD EVERYTHING, THAT JEZEBEL
- Aren't you supposed to stay on the compound, Michael
- And there we go, that snaky fuck Bester behind it all
- Oh wow, Bester co-opted a sneaky Shadow op to create his own sneaky op
- MAN, those fucking Shadows were playing everyone against everyone
- Fucking Bester, what a creepy fucking villain
- I imagine Lise took the stuff with her?
- "A true hero of the people." Man, Earth are dicks

Babylon 5 S4E17: The Face of the Enemy

Spoiler:

Garibaldi rats out his former boss, betrays his current boss, and helps out his true boss.

-Ivanova's ass-kicking campaign continues.
-Sheridan has a conveniently nondistracting head wound.
-Ha, just you wait. Something will go wrong.
-Garijudas.
-At the Gate of Zedan...
-They're fanatics. Duh.
-And they expect to be massacred.
-Don't do it, dude! This is the '90s. They're just using the voice from his hollowed-out corpse as a ruse.
-Here comes fun.
-Lol, you think they haven't been replaced by loyalists.
-Not telling people the deets.
-Wheeling in the popsicles.
-Garibaldi making the sale.
-And Sheridan's bought a timeshare.
-Wacky Psicop vigilantes.
-They opened the door to the Ancient Ones in his head.
-Oh hey, Delenn came by to visit.
-"Minbari consider a call to service to be a sacred act. I will feed your goldfish while you are gone."
-Cheesy dive bar with '90s shoegazer band.
-Wooo, trippy patch.
-Right through the window.
-Time to beat him up.
-We got him! Mission Accomplished.
-You can't handle the truth, Michael. But I'll explain my diabolical supervillain plan anyway.
-Easily hacked palm scanner for the safe.
-Oh, that's your fentanyl.
-The red one is the Andromeda strain.
-It specifically targets the X-gene. No More Mutants.
-And he's an evilutionist.
-Now that you know, you must be killed. But not right now. I am a gentleman, after all.
-And she knows.
-There's a hidden transmitter. Always in the tooth that rips out cleanly.
-Sorry Lise, Michael's programming is on pause.
-And here's his handler.
-It's Bester!
-Flashback to five minutes ago.
-More flashbacks!
-Hijacking the Shadow programming.
-Just do some fine-tuning around the edges.
-Bester should just shoot him, but he didn't read the Evil Overlord list.
-Leaving an enemy alive with a raging desire to kill you.
-Ivanova doesn't mess around.
-Garibaldi finds the aftermath of the Psicop raid.
-More from the Fake News Network.

B5 S4 E18

Spoiler:

- Remember when Star Trek TOS had their budget cut so they started doing more experimental things to cover for it? B5 sort of feels like that at this point
- Oh, shock collar. I thought "it'd be kind of easy to take this fucking nerd down if you're Sheridan."
- Wouldn't "I died once" at least count as a heart problem?
- I see this is going to be a disturbing one, just started and they're already fucking with Sheridan's sense of time
- "You've been interrogated before." "Yes." "Anyone I know?" Cheeky
- See, even the Interrogator calls him "Captain." This guy is trying to remove Sheridan's power but calling him "Captain" reinforces it
- That Drazi is definitely dead now that he's not cooperating
- Oh man, I forgot about psychics, they have to break Sheridan completely so that he even passes psychic tests
- I wonder why they don't have psychics doing this in the first place. It worked on Garibaldi, though I guess he was intercepted by Bester while they were doing it so maybe there's not a lot of trust between Clark and the Psi-Corps
- Again giving Sheridan a ton of power by having the Interrogator admit that Sheridan beat him
- And now plainly admitting that Sheridan's word is way too powerful to the public.
- I wonder why Interrogator-kun is so upset by this. He did mention he's expendable, maybe his head's gonna come off if he fails
- At least they read him his last rites
- What the fuck
- They're just gonna keep doing it over and over until someone gets him?
- Huh, really interesting "one room" episode, but sorta goofy too. If it was real life they'd parade his father in front of him and threaten to do horrifying things to him unless he confessed

Babylon 5 S4E18: Intersections in Real Time

Spoiler:

Sheridan gets the full brainwashing treatment.

-Moody intro.
-More flashbacks.
-One dude.
-One table.
-Two seats.
-Shock collar.
-Yep, Narn collar.
-Fake CG shackles.
-Interrogation time.
-This is gonna be a bottle episode.
-Yeah, it's loaded with something bad.
-It's loaded with iocane powder.
-Aha, they want a public confession.
-Random alien.
-Well, he found his courage pretty quick.
-Special guest hallucination time.
-The Drazi was just for show.
-Try try again.

At one point, this was intended to be the season finale.

Spoiler:

Yeah, but he wouldn't pass a scan that way.
