Synopsis: Garibaldi dreams that the station is being attacked and he can do nothing to stop it. He awakens to find Lyta at the foot of his bed. She tells him she’s decided to stop hiding what the Vorlons did to her and that she’s testing the limits of what she can do. She tells Garibaldi that he’s been having a dream, and he wakes up again to find Lise entering his quarters. She later discovers alcohol in his cabinet and confronts him about his return to the bottle. Later, during a date at Fresh Aire, she tells Garibaldi she is worried about some of the things she has found in the Edgars corporations on Mars. Lyta asks a businessman to hire her telepaths in exchange for letting them keep a livable, uninhabited planet they find. She is turned down, however, because they are not affiliated with the Psi Corps. Lyta turns to G’Kar and reminds him of the offer he made her in 2257: cash in exchange for her telepath DNA. Vir and Londo are suspicious when people from other worlds cancel all meetings with the Centauri. Lennier takes a Minbari fighter and tracks a signal to the source of the random attacks, and records evidence that the Centauri are behind them. The Centauri homeworld instructs Londo to threaten war if they are accused in the attacks. After learning that Lennier is still alive after his mission, Delenn encounters Londo in the hall and hugs him because she fears she will never have another chance to do so. After a covert meeting with the leaders of the Alliance, Garibaldi tells Lise to leave Babylon 5 as quickly as possible because he fears war will break out within hours.

Notable Quotes

Sheridan: Oh, damn it Delenn. I have been working up a good mad all day and I am not about to let you undercut it by agreeing with me.

Londo: (Delenn hugs Londo) What? What is this for.
Delenn: I have never done that in all the time, you and I have been here. And uh, I think very soon, we will never have another chance.

Lise: You’re not making any sense.
Garibaldi: I want you to get out of this part of space and back home just as fast as you can. Because baring an act of God and since I don’t believe in God, that kind of narrows the odds a bit. By this time tomorrow, we’re gonna be at war with the Centauri.

Lyta: I have decided to stop hiding what the Vorlons did to me. I’m testing to see what I can do, how far I can go. I had no idea. You shouldn’t have woken up. This is just a dream. This never happened.

Londo: Gambling no longer has any appeal for me. When everyday is risk, cards and dice are not quite as interesting as they used to be.

Lyta: Oh, and you mentioned wondering what my pleasure threshold is. I just recently found out, I don’t have one. Have a very very nice day, G’kar.
