Synopsis: Delenn is recalled to Minbar to answer to her clan about taking a human mate. If the clan decides she is in error, she will not be allowed to return to Babylon 5. Before Delenn leaves the station, she watches Sheridan for the third night. Lennier accompanies Delenn to their homeworld, where they enter the Dreaming. Delenn is taken back to the time when she served the Minbari leader Dukhat as aide and when she was appointed to the Grey Council. After exiting the Dreaming, Delenn realizes that what she was supposed to see and hear was on the verge, so she takes Lennier and Calenn back in that they may see the end of the story. Dukhat, on his deathbed, tells Delenn she is a child of Valen. Delenn therefore realizes that she is already partially human. Delenn and Calenn compromise and Delenn returns to Babylon 5. Meanwhile, Ivanova attends a Drazi religious festival. Marcus and Franklin embark on a journey to Mars, taking the long way around, to meet with B5 allies there.

Dukhat: When others do a foolish thing, you should tell them it is a foolish thing. They can still continue to do it, but at least the truth is where it needs to be.

Delenn: They deserve no mercy. Strike them down. Follow them to their bases and kill them, all of them… all of them! No mercy! No mercy!!

Franklin: It smells like the inside of a Martian pleasure dome on Sunday morning.

Delenn: If the universe puts a mystery in front of us as a gift, then lightness requires that at least try and solve it.
