TV Tropes has this to say:
"When said sarcastically, it's telegraphing a disaster. When said more seriously, it's an open invitation for the world to go to hell in a handbasket"
Well, Sheridan's still alive and on the station, so it's not quite hell in a handbasket yet, but considering the situation with Earth.... it could be well on its way!
I'm really noticing, with the exception of the departure of O'Hare forcing his part of the story into the open, B5 is really a story of mysteries. I like some mysteriousness but must admit I'm kind of losing patience with the depth of mysteriousness in this show sometimes and how just more and more mysteries keep getting piled on without answering any. Who's the "oh so mysterious alien species" this time? Are they relevant? Who's the "us" that Sheridan is always with (apart from a copy of DS9's phophets) and what's Kosh got to do with them? And someone PLEASE give Kosh / the Vorlons a story. I'm guessing that since we're clearly entering a war with the "shadows" or the "darkness" and whenever Kosh takes his suit off we see a lot of light, that they're the opposite sides of some kind of yin and yang type of alien. Hopefully that means we'll see something soon, as the mystery is getting old.
I suppose the mysteriousness is balanced out with a little bit of predictability. I'd put money on my theory with the Vorlons and the Shadows.
Interesting to see Delenn being removed from the greybeards. A bit of a parallel with Worf on DS9, but hey, how many stories can these shows possibly come up with?
I know we've seen him before but I never noticed his name. General William Hague? Nuuuuu it's British Tories in Space!
Well, it was worth seeing the captain going through a hard time, and of course, the potential beginnings of using the B5 crew to set Earth government straight. Interesting, interesting...
