List of Babylon 5 episodes

"Revelations" is an episode from the second season of the science fiction television series Babylon 5.

In an article on binge-watching Babylon 5, entertainment website writes that Revelations is "a fairly dedicate plot episode. Skip it and you'll be floundering from here on. This is an episode that will be flashed back-upon for many seasons to come."[1]


The Babylon 5 Council meets, but nothing is accomplished due to two absences: G'Kar and Delenn. G'Kar is chased by some Shadow fighters, apparently in Quadrant 37.

Captain Sheridan's sister Elizabeth pays him a visit and they try to reconnect and recover from the death of Sheridan's wife Anna two years prior.

Sheridan helps Dr. Franklin to heal Garibaldi with the help of the Alien Healing Device.

Delenn emerges from her cocoon.

Mollari's involvement with Morden becomes more complex and dangerous, as G'Kar's warning about an ancient enemy falls on deaf ears.

The Narn send a ship to Z'ha'dum; the ship is destroyed.

Garibaldi's aide is discovered and captured with Talia-inspired Garibaldi memory recollection. He gives an "OK" salute (thumb and forefinger form an O, the rest are straight) and says "be seeing you" - as do the inhabitants of the village in The Prisoner

Delenn reveals her transformation. She now has long brown hair, and appears more human.

G'Kar recites part of a poem, "And what rough beast...Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

At President Clark's request, Garibaldi's aide is extradited to Earth, never to be heard from again.[2]

  • Anna Sheridan's back-story will have repercussions in later episodes.
