Passing Through Gethsemane

Babylon 5Kosh returns from the Vorlon homeworld with Lyta Alexander in tow. She informs the command staff that she will be working on the ambassador’s behalf, but can not tell them anything about what she has seen. She also does not tell them that she has been physically modified to be able to survive in the Vorlons’ preferred atmosphere.

One of Brother Theo’s monks, Brother Edward, is surprised to find a black rose hidden in his bag and the words “death walks among you” written on his wall, in blood. He is even more susprised when he shows the wall to Garibaldi, and the words are nowhere to be found. He goes on with his work and interviews Delenn and Lennier about Minbari belief systems. Soon after, he is overcome by visions of a violent murder. He searches the station database for clues, and soon discovers that he was once a murderer, sentenced to the death of personality. Edward believes his soul still bears the guilt of the actions he committed. So do the families of his victims, and they have come to Babylon 5 to seek justice. Brother Theo asks Sheridan to help Edward, but Edward may not want to be saved.
