* After their fight lands Marcus in the hospital, Neroon visits and shares an epiphiny he had about how he and Marcus are NotSoDifferent. Marcus requests that for his next revalation, he find a method of getting there which isn't so painful, a remark that Neroon finds hilarious. We learn in Season 5 that Minbari humor centers around the failure to reach enlightment (and puns). Marcus's observation about Neroon's difficulty finding enlightment without beating someone senseless is thus particularly funny to a Minbari warrior.

* Londo remarks that by getting drunk, he can put his keeper to sleep and give him some brief moments of freedom, presumably while himself on the edge of an alcohol-induced blackout. Why would the keeper even allow him to do this? Because alcohol is ''addictive''. Londo got his keeper hooked on his own drug of choice and now the keeper wants it as badly as he does, but lacks the tolerance for it.

** Alternately, the guards might have been bringing it to her out of pity. [[LoopholeAbuse Perhaps they were never ordered not to feed the prisoner a delicacy.]]

** As a cherry on top, Vir's request was to "live just long enough" to see Morden's head on a spike. ''That also nearly came to be'' - just as Vir was waving his goodbyes the Vorlon Planet Killer was positioning itself to fire upon Centauri Prime and only left because a completely unexpected event elsewhere required its withdrawal.

** Also, in Londo's narration that opens ''The Gathering,'' he states that B5 achieved its greatness "under the leadership of its final commander." It shows admirable foresight from JMS that he didn't name that commander. The problem is, the last commander of B5 we see is ''Lochley.''

Or Zach Allen, depending on how you interpret his role in the station's decomissioning.

* Londo and G'Kar discover Na'toth in the palace dungeon after finding a bowl of fresh spoo, which Narn consider a delicacy. Why feed a prisoner a delicacy? Maybe the Centauri guards thought (or were told, by her) fresh spoo was as disgusting to Narn as it was to them. One imagines their reaction to G'Kar picking up the bowl and chowing down.

** Even then, the circumstances around that involved Vir having to [[TheseHandsHaveKilled compromise himself somewhat]] and get involved in the notoriously dangerous politics of the Centauri court. Not to mention what Vir and Londo's relationship [[WeUsedToBeFriends will be put through]] as part of the Drakh's [[PuppeteerParasite revenge]] for Londo's ][[HeelFaceTurn betrayal of the Shadows.]]

** On the note of the death dreams: It wouldn't matter if the pilot knew he would die ''in'' combat or ''out'' of combat. If he was destined to die in combat, he could fight with abandon knowing it would end the same. if he was destined not to, he could fight with abandon knowing he'd survive. As for those pilots who ''didn't'' have such visions, they might claim to for the sake of bravado.
