The shipment is hundreds of reeducated telepaths who are intended to be merged with Shadow ships. When Bester discovers that one of the telepaths is his lover, he pledges support to Sheridan against the Shadows. G’Kar again asks to be included in the Army of Light, and Sheridan and Delenn agree. Garibaldi discovers a connection between Narn mindwalkers and G’Quon’s defeat of the Shadows in the last war 1000 years ago.

Notable Quotes

Delenn: We will take you into the council G’kar. Someday when all this is over. Perhaps you will find it in your heart to forgive me.
G’kar: Yes. But not today.

Delenn: G’kar, under the Centauri, there is at least the hope of survival. With the Shadows, there is no hope at all. We had to choose between the death of millions and the death of billions.

G’kar: I am honored to be among them. This is a great day, a very great day indeed.

Sheridan: So how did you find out about all of this?
Bester: I’m a telepath. Work it out.

Bester: You know, if this keeps up. I’m going to start thinking the people around here, just don’t like me.

Bester: Kill me and you will never know, what brought me all the way out here. I think if you weight that against the brief satisfaction of blowing me out of the sky, you’ll do the right thing. … Captain?
Sheridan: I’m thinking it over.

Bester: There’s an old saying, The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Sheridan: Mr. Bester.
Bester: Captain Sheridan.
Sheridan: Get the hell out of my chair!

Ivanova: The Shadows have just started attacking Brakiri space, openly. They’re not hiding anymore. They are finally on the move.

Sheridan: Mr. Bester, we no longer have any ties to Earth or the Psi Corps. So we don’t have to put up with you or your games. Now, I am sitting on four brand new unidirectional pulse cannons. Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t blow you out of the sky?

G’kar: Do no thump the book of G’Quan. It is disrespectful.

Bester: I suspect you would rather walk out that door and wall me up inside. Do a little recreation of The Cask of Amontillado. For the love of God, Montressori!
Ivanova: If you get near a point, Make it.
