* FreezeFrameBonus: When Lieutenant Keffer [[spoiler:is killed by the Shadow vessel]], just as the scene ends his body [[CruelAndUnusualDeath burns red from the water in his body vaporizing from the light of the Shadow vessel.]] Freeze-framing it clearly shows the [[SarcasmMode lovely image]] of Keffer's burning body just before the Shadow blows him to atoms. JMS felt sorry for the actor. Still did it. Took much satisfaction from it, it seems.

** Even more frightening. . . ''what if the Soul Hunters are right?'' What if there is no afterlife, and the soul ends with death, and the only way everything you are is not lost forever is to be placed in that collection?

*** And that as pure and unsullied a spirit as [[spoiler: young Vir]] had to commit murder to stop him.

** Throw in the mentality that CREATED Psi Corps. Ironically it's Garibaldi who points it out (sort of giving a WhatTheHellHero speech to humanity: "We put them all in a black box labeled 'Psi Corps' and now look, black uniforms, jackboots..." He openly points out people did it because they were scared of telepaths. In the Psi Corps novels it's estimated that when telepathy was proven real, ''thousands'' of telepaths were murdered (and the books set before the series begins show that there were still plenty of people who hated telepaths enough to kill them, or lure would-be rogues into horrible fates like sex slavery.) Several characters explicitly compare the telepath crisis to the Holocaust (and on the show Edgars refers to "the telepath problem", as in the "Jewish problem", when discussing his own...final solution. Bester's hardcore determination to put teeps' safety over mundanes (even crazy teeps or rogues) makes a lot of sense when you consider that not only was one of the richest humans in the galaxy willing to create a virus that could exterminate telepaths, but he found a lot of people willing to knowingly help him.

** And then there's the alternative to the Psi Corps--being administered sleepers on a regular basis, which over time dull the mind until there's little (if any) personality left.

* The very concept of Soul Hunters, in a universe where souls are not only real but ''physically observable''. Imagine being denied whatever afterlife may exist/you personally believe in just to be confined to a jar for someone's "collection" for all eternity. No wonder most races react to the Soul Hunters with extreme hostility!
