In the wake of the war, President Clark panics because his Shadow allies are no longer there to help him, and sets wheels into motion to bring down those responsible for the Shadows’ departure – Sheridan and the others aboard B5. Bester learns of a plan to tarnish B5’s public image by having a squadron of Psi Corps’ Black Omega fighters attack the blockade at the nearest Earth outpost to the station, claiming to be from Babylon 5, and travels to the station to warn Sheridan. But the price for this information is an ill-advised trip to Z’Ha’Dum so Bester can try to recover Shadow technology that could free his former lover from their influence, a trip which is cut short when an intruder detection system destroys Z’Ha’Dum completely. Other surprises include Garibaldi’s sudden resignation after receiving a mysterious call, Londo and G’Kar returning to the station, the arrival of a new alien race on Centauri Prime, and at least one Elvis sighting.
