THE COMING OF SHADOWS
Original Air Date: 02/02/95
Director: Janet Greek
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
The elderly Centauri Emperor (TURHAN BEY) makes a rare visit away from home and comes to Babylon 5. Ambassador G'Kar is angry at Sheridan for welcoming a Centauri, whom he considers an enemy to his people, the Narns. Sheridan tries to convince G'Kar to have a peaceful discussion with the Emperor. However, G'Kar secretly makes plans to assassinate the Emperor during a speech, but the Emperor collapses before he can use his dagger. The Emperor later apologizes for the destruction the Centauri have wrought on the Narn. G'Kar is relieved that he didn't murder the Emperor.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the Emperor, Centauri Ambassador Londo Mollari plots to gain power in his home world with the help of Refa. He uses the mysterious Shadows to capture another Narn outpost. The Centauri receive the credit. When the Emperor dies of natural causes before he can disavow any knowledge of the attack, G'Kar assumes that he was lying about wanting peace between the two races. After the Centauri prime minister is murdered by Londo's colleagues, the Emperor's nephew becomes the new rules. His views are similar to those of Londo, who prefers to remain behind the scenes to manipulate the situation. The Centauri and the Narn declare war on each other.
Finally, Garibaldi receives a strange message from Babylon 5's former commander, Sinclair, who warns him vaguely about unsettling future events. Sinclair is now working with the Minbari to bring them and humans together to forestall a bleak future.
GEOMETRY OF SHADOWS
Original Air Date: 11/16/94
Director: Mike Vejar
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Aboard Babylon 5, Centauri Ambassador Londo Mollari meets with his fellow officials to discuss the Centauri's rise to power, but his plans are interrupted by the arrival of the mysterious Technomages -- human-looking wizards on a secret mission. The Technomage leader prophesies Londo's rise to power, implying that it will bring great evil with it. Londo's success has increased steadily ever since he instigated the destruction of a Narn military base in Quadrant 37, something the Narn do not suspect and for which the grateful Centauri gave him credit.
Meanwhile, Captain Sheridan promotes Commander Susan Ivanova to commander and assigns her to the dangerous mission of finding a peaceful resolution to the warring factions of the Drazi race.
Finally, Security Chief Michael Garibaldi recovers from his shot wound. Blaming himself for not realizing that his second-in-command was a traitor, he debates whether or not to accept Captain Sheridan's offer to return to work. After helping Ivanova solve the Drazi problem, he realizes that he is need and resumes his position.
