On Minbar, the warrior caste stoops to treacherous new lows as Delenn receives the news that Shakiri, the warrior leader, will openly attack the capitol of Minbar and its population unless the religious caste offers its immedaite surrender. On B5, Lyta finds herself at a disadvantage since she has gone on the run from Psi Corps. Potential clients who need a telepath to perform even the most routine duties will not accept the services of a known renegade. Psi Cop Bester happens to be on the station, and offers Lyta the renewal of her Psi Corps certification if she will agree to have her Vorlon-enhanced body turned over to Bester upon her death. Lyta refuses to sign such a contract, but she is left with little alternative. The room she occupied during the height of the war is too expensive for her, a visit to Garibaldi seeking work almost but doesn’t quite work due to the insistent disapproval of Garibaldi’s new employer, William Edgars of Mars, and the only other offer of work she gets is from Zack, who wants the evasive former security chief scanned without permission. Lyta must now reluctantly return to the Psi Corps, Delenn must surrender and risk being killed as a symbol of her caste’s strength, and forces under the control of Earth President Clark engage in a killing spree which incites Sheridan to declare war on Earth.
