Synopsis: The Shadows begin openly attacking worlds on the rim. Sheridan requests the Vorlons’ help in convincing the rim worlds their cause is unified. Londo’s lover Adira is murdered by Morden; Morden uses this to turn Londo against Refa. Garibaldi confronts Franklin about his stim addiction. Kosh loses his life in an assault by the Shadows.
Morden: Anything I can do to help? Vir: Um, short of dying? No, I can’t think of a thing.
Sheridan: Don’t turn your back on me! Don’t you even try to walk away from me! Just who the hell do you think you are?! Oh wait, I know what you think you are, what you want us to believe. But I don’t buy it. For three years now, you’ve been pulling everyone’s strings, getting us to do all the work and you haven’t done a damn thing but stand there and look cryptic! Well, it’s about time you started pulling your own weight around here!
Kosh: I will do as you ask.
Morden: My associates my turn their eye toward your home world. Londo: Then we shall pluck it out.
Londo: I feel happy. I had almost forgotten what it was like.
Londo: Give me this and the safety of my people and let the rest of the Galaxy burn. I don’t care anymore.
Sheridan: And who decides that time? You? You put me in this position. You asked me to fight this damn war! Well, it’s about time you let me fight it my way! How many people have already died fighting this war of yours, huh? How many more will die before you come down off that mountain and get involved? Ships, colonies, whole worlds are being destroyed out there, and you do nothing! How many more? How many more, Kosh? How many more dead before you’re satisfied? Huh?
Sheridan: So, the real Kosh shows his colors at last, huh? You angry now? Angry enough to kill me? Because that’s the only way I’m leaving. Unless your people get off their encounter suited butts and do something, I’ve got nothing to lose! God, my own government wants to kill me, and if we lose this war, I’m just as dead! Our only chance is to get the other races on board for this fight and right now you’re the key to doing that.
Sheridan: I hear you’ve got a saying, understanding is a three edged sward. Well we’ve got a saying to, put your money where your mouth is!
Londo: There is nothing you can do to me, Mr. Morden, that has not already been done.
