NOTE: As I stated before, I'm going in the airing order, which is the order the episodes are on the DVD set. The Lurker's Guide has a slightly different order, I think it's production order.
This also happens to be one of my favorite episodes in S5, possibly the entire series. This episode would not have been possible, had we not been through the first 4 years. There's a weight to this one that we haven't seen yet in S5.
"Why?" --only word Zootie has said to Rebo in 10 years.
"Because it tells me to." --what Zootie said to Sheridan.
- "Zootie! Zoot, zoot!"
- "Tonight, the dead return."
- Lennier's back!
- Lennier seems genuinely excited about the Brakiri Day of the Dead.
- Dinner with Rebo & Zootie? Zoot, zoot!
- Episode written by Neil Gaiman. Nice, but we don't see the Gaim, do we?
- The Brakiri must own part of B5 in order for the Day of the Dead to be celebrated there.
- The Captain should really listen to G'Kar. Didn't Sheridan tell her about the whole "Look in my book, I think this race has returned" thing? Shadows, hello?
- There's a Rebo & Zootie marathon. It looks like B5 has its own channels now. Smart move, after being shut out when separating from Earth.
- Corwin trying to catch his hat is funny, although it makes you wonder if he'd be caught dead doing it if Ivanova was still around.
- G'Kar knows what the Day of the Dead is all about and is sleeping in C&C as a result! Hope he doesn't snore.
- "If Vir can be Emperor, a small Earth CAT can be Emperor." Funnier when you remember how Londo commented at one time that something was like being nibbled to death by cats.
- Londo seems to know what the Day of the Dead is all about, too, but unlike G'Kar, he's embracing it. Who does he want to come back? It looks almost like the painting of Cartagia, but Londo's obviously talking to someone else who he respects.
- Ooh, Adira! Morden's lover who was killed by Morden.
- "I am to be Emperor. I am the savior of our people." I thought he learned from that experience, but apparently not. Nice Ego, Londo.
- Let's just stare at Fabiana Udenio for a while...
- The dead don't seem particularly surprised to suddenly be alive again.
- Ooh. Zoe's here 2 seconds and already has a cold.
- What determines who comes back, anyway? Londo seemed to think he could summon who he wanted, but is it more that it's the dead who get to choose? That doesn't explain...
- That voice sounds familiar... d'oh!
- Ahh, Sheridan's still wandering the halls by himself, nobody to protect him.
- Re Universe Today: Why is a Narn consulate on Mars controversial?
- Morden has a new haircut in the afterlife. Why Lennier, though?
- Interesting how Morden sees what he did as "trying to make people happy."
- Morden's head is still on the pole on Centauri Prime.
- Part of the station has moved 200 million light years away, specifically, near the Brakiri homeworld.
- Morden told Lennier he will betray the Rangers. Why would Morden be the one to tell him this?
- Lochley's figured out how to communicate but needs Garibaldi's mad hacking skillz.
- TOPLESS LONDO AGAIN! AAAAUGH!
- Garibaldi made the connection in 17 minutes. He's getting better at this.
- Lennier managed to ignore Morden all night via meditation.
- Zoe had a message to Sheridan from Kosh: "When the long night comes, return to the end of the beginning." Wow, just like Inigo Montoya.
- Rebo & Zootie's humor is right up Londo's alley.
I REALLY enjoyed watching this episode again.
