Synopsis: Garibaldi lures Sheridan to Mars with news that his father has been captured by Clark. He then drugs Sheridan so that Clark’s forces can capture him. The Mars Resistance’s Number One is less than enthusiastic when Franklin arrives with Lyta and the frozen telepaths in tow. It seems that Psi Corps has posted bloodhound units with the military on Mars to perform deep scans on those suspected of being members of the resistance. Edgars proclaims that the greatest threat to human liberty and thought is telepaths. He then admits to not only discovering the cure for the anti-telepath virus, but to engineering the virus as well. Edgars hopes to use the virus as an intimidation tool over the Psi Corps. Garibaldi shares this information with Bester. The Psi Cop admits to Garibaldi that he was captured by the Corps and slightly reprogrammed to ferret out dangers to the Corps. Bester releases Garibaldi from the telepathic influence with full memory of the events since his disappearance. Frantic, Garibaldi returns to the Edgars compound to find a ransacked room and Edgars and Wade near death. Lise is missing, as is the virus and antidote. Unfortunately for Garibaldi, by this time Ivanova has learned of his role in Sheridan’s capture, and orders Babylon 5 forces to shoot him on sight. The Agamemnon, Sheridan’s former ship, joins the resistance.
