  1. Voord 99 Says:

    [Spoilers for The Hour of the Wolf]

    For me at any rate, The Hour of the Wolf is probably the best season opener after Midnight on the Firing Line. What always stands out about it for me is how effectively the early scenes on Babylon 5 establish a dark, somber tone of hopelessness. Not an episode to watch when one is depressed. Even the reveal of Sheridan at the end shows us a haggard, haunted person rather than being a moment of optimism.

    It says something about the episode that it’s Centauri Prime, with its barking mad Emperor, that provides relief from the grimness. In isolation, Cartagia might be a little too over-the-top to take seriously. But here, his special brand of comedy/horror works very well, especially because Wortham Krimmer plays him with oodles of charisma and absolutely no sense of restraint whatsoever.

    And it’s Centauri Prime that gives us our one genuine moment of optimism: Londo, in his snarky, backhanded way, finally acknowledging Vir’s value as a friend and as a person. Their rapprochement is, for me, one of the most touching moments in all of Babylon 5.
