* ViewersAreMorons: The "only as Jack" line got some accusations of this, from people who thought it was too on the nose when the lead-up to it would easily allow someone to figure it out all by itself. JMS countered that several more fans wrote in saying they didn't figure it out until that line.

He begins asking her why she is there, trying to down her reasoning that she is meant to be there, even when the wolrd says otherwise. When he points out that the others may well be right, she admits she does consider that sometimes. [[ArmorPiercingResponse Taken aback, Sebastian allows her some time to rest]].

Added DiffLines:

* DeathSeeker: Implied by Sebastian's comment about the Vorlons finally letting him die.
* DrivenByEnvy: Delenn accuses Sebastian of this, that his failure to achieve something makes him lash out at anyone who thinks they have a destiny and try to prove they're just as flawed as he is. His reaction implies she's not that far off.


Added DiffLines:

* RejectedApology: G'Kar rejects Vir's apology on the grounds that he has no way to make it up to the scores of dead. That said, G'kar sounds very regretful as he does.

Confused, Delenn tries to answer, name, position, family, but Sebastian is not satisfied with any of those and expresses his displeasure with a painful jolt from the bracelets. He begins berating and mocking her for her view that she has an important part in what will happen, and tormenting her with ever increasing levels of pain, seeming determined to break down this notion that she is on a divinely appointed mission, even if it kills her.

Sebastian waves his cane and vanishes, and the two of them are released. They hug each other, though they're not quite sure what just happened, and then Sebastian appears at the door. He tells them they can go, they passed.

-->'''Sebastian''': How do you know the chosen ones? No greater love hath a man than he lay down his life for his friend. Not for millions, not for glory, not for fame... for one person. In the dark. Where no one will ever know or see. I've been in the service of the Vorlons for centuries, looking... Diogenes with his lamp looking for a man willing to die for all the wrong reasons. At last, my job is finished. Yours is just beginning. When the darkness comes, know this: You are the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

Confused, Delenn tries to answer, name, position, family, but Sebastian is not satisfied with any of those and expresses his displeasure with a painful jolt from the bracelets. He begins berating and mocking her for her view that she has an important part in what will happen, and tormenting her with ever increasing levels of pain.

He begins asking her why she is there, leading her down her reasoning that she is meant to be there, no matter what anyone else may say. When he points out that the others may well be right, she admits she does consider that sometimes. Taken aback, Sebastian allows her some time to rest.

G'Kar is speaking with a gathering of Narns, outlining his plans, but they are beginning to lose faith. They don't doubt his intentions, just his capability. One in particular, asks for some word from his family, which G'Kar promises to deliver, or step aside.

Delenn is exhausted and frustrated and in pain as Sebastian continues. She begins to point out some of his own deficiencies, much to his annoyance, and he activates the bracelets, bringing her to her knees.

G'Kar comes to Sheridan and asks for his help in finding the family. Afterwards, Sheridan decides that it would be better to keep him where he is, rather than have the local Narns put in an unknown. He has Garibaldi tell the Rangers to find them and get a message.

Vir ducks into a transport tube to escape another of Londo's supplicants, not noticing G'Kar already in there. After enduring the Narn's piercing stare for several uncomfortable seconds, Vir tries to apologize that he wasn't able to stop any of this. G'Kar is unresponsive until the tube opens and he walks out, then turns and draws a knife. He slices his hand then holds it up for Vir to see as blood drops fall down, one by one.

-->'''G'Kar''': Dead, dead, dead, dead, ''dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, dead''. How do you apologize to them?\\
'''Vir''': I can't.\\
'''G'Kar''': Then I cannot forgive.

In their dark corner of the station Sebastian begins mocking Delenn's sense of destiny. She claims that everyone has a destiny, but some, like Sebastian, try to keep others from seeing theirs. Sebastian sarcastically tells her to call out (with some urging from the manacles) to see if the Universe responds, and relishes the following silence.

* GenreSavvy: G'Kar knows that Garibaldi doesn't ask pointed questions unless he already knows the answer. For that reason, when Garibaldi asks him about Narn weapons smuggling through Babylon 5, G'Kar doesn't bother denying it.

** Sebastian also asks Delenn whether she'd ever considered she might be wrong. With virtually no hesitation, she replies "[[BluntYes yes]]". This answer actually shakes him up slightly--making it an attempted ArmorPiercingQuestion that, by way of an unexpected answer, pierces ''his'' armor.
