  • Darkness Ascending

    Darkness Ascending was a perfect episode of Babylon 5. I really enjoyed watching this episode as Garibaldi had a disturbing nightmare and awakened to find an unexpected visitor in his quarters, Lyta returns and continues Byron's mission, and Lennier disobeys orders in order to pursue a signal that may lead to the evidence Sheridan has been looking for. There was a lot of drama, intrigue, and character development in this episode. The story lines are interweaving in complexity which makes every thing so interesting and fun to watch. The end of this episode was a surprise and I can't wait to watch more!!!!!!!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Lyta: Oh, and you mentioned wondering what my pleasure threshold is. I just recently found out... I don't have one. Have a very, very nice day, G'Kar.

    • Lyta: I've been told each world's internal affairs are considered private. And this is as internal an affair I can think of.

    • Lyta: I don't know how long that offer was good for, but I just wanted to tell you that I ... accept your proposition.
      G'Kar: Which part?
      Lyta: The part where I give you access to my ... genetic material.
      G'Kar: Oh.
      Lyta: Assuming you're still interested.

    • Delenn: Further, he will not stop, will not slow down, will not give up until he has proof that the Centauri are behind these attacks.

    • Sheridan: Now, it is absolutely inappropriate of you to pull a stunt like that without telling me. I can not have you making ...
      : You are right.
      Sheridan: ... I ... Oh, dammit, Delenn. I've been working up a good mad all day and I am not about to let you undercut it by agreeing with me.
      Delenn: It was inappropriate for me to assign Lennier to that part of space without informing you. Just as it was inappropriate for you not to assign him there. I admitted mine with perfect honesty. Now you can admit yours.

    • Lise: I'm sorry.
      Garibaldi: I don't want you to be sorry. I don't need your pity. I don't need anybody's pity. All I know is that I'm tired of being controlled. Controlled by others, by fear, by my past, by what everybody else expects of me and it's enough. Enough. ... And this. This is my own private little act of rebellion, yeah. I may not be able to control what other people do to me, but I can at least be in control of what I do to myself.

    • Londo: You would think they don't trust us.
      Vir: I don't think anyone trusts anyone right now, Londo.
      Londo: You say it as if it were a bad thing. No one really trusts anyone, Vir. It's the natural order of things. But until now it has never interfered with business. I find this very strange.

    • Lyta: We can get you all the telepaths you need.
      Businessman: But not the ones I want. Look, I understand your desire to create a homeworld for telepaths. I'm not unsympathetic, but what you're asking is beyond the capabilities of my company, or any others. You need someone with a lot more resources and no contractual obligations to the PsiCorps. Good luck trying to find him.

    • Lyta: I've decided to stop hiding what the Vorlons did to me. I'm testing to see what I can do, how far I can go. I had no idea. You shouldn't have woken up. This is just a dream. This ... never ... happened.

    • Garibaldi: Don't fight it. No, you're not gonna win. The more you fight it, the stronger it gets.

  • NOTES (1)

    • In the scene where Garibaldi enters destroyed Zocalo, there are the dead bodies of Sheridan and Zack Allan. The sentences written in blood on the floor beside the bodies are:
      Sheridan: You failed me.
      Zack: Where were you?
