The season is coming to a head as things kick off with our heroes back on Babylon 5. In this heavily emotional episode, Susan appears to be mortally wounded, and Marcus is in worse shape than she is emotionally. Michael appears to be back—as his old self and back on the team in good standing—as things come to a head on Mars. Sheridan’s forces release their own secret weapon in the form of 30 very unique bombs, and it becomes clear the plan to win the war includes bypassing Mars and going straight to Earth.
Under Sheridan’s leadership the war appears to culminate in favor of the Resistance and a horrible back-up plan is revealed as Clark realizes he’s on the cusp of losing. He implements the plan and takes what is arguably the easy way out as more forces turn on him and move to place him under arrest. Then, it appears to be over and we’re comforted for a moment by the warm, familiar, and emotional voice of our trusted news anchor Jane. With and end to the war, the dust begins to settle and we realize the return to “normal”, or the new normal, will be complicated and take time. And for Sheridan, it will take a trial for his actions.
