Sheridan unwittingly walks into a trap set by two Minbari, in which he is forced to kill one of them in self-defense as the other witnesses the event. Immediately, all hell breaks loose when the Minbari government presses charges of murder, threatening to reignite the hostility between the two races. Even worse, Delenn’s insistence that Minbari do not lie further clouds the issue as the surviving witness insists that Sheridan killed his fellow Minbari in cold blood. Earthforce seems eager to stand by and let Sheridan be accused of the killing rather than offering official support. Even Kosh, who is tutoring Sheridan for purposes unknown, offers the captain no more help than another lesson. It falls upon Delenn and Lennier – who is in the difficult position of belonging to the same Minbari clan as the accuser – to find out if Sheridan is being framed.
Guest Cast: Julie Caitlin Brown (Guinevere Corey), Jeff Conaway (Zack Allan), Sean Gregory Sullivan (Ashan), Neil Bradley (Minbari #3), Ardwight Chamberlain (Kosh), Jonathan Chapman (Minbari #2), Vincent Duvall (Centauri Envoy), Eliott Arnold (Human Customer), Mark Hendrickson (Human/Alien Customer), Ossie Mair (Store Owner), Michael McKenzie (Alien Customer)
Note: Kosh’s mention in Hunter, Prey of teaching Sheridan to understand himself better comes to fruition in this episode, during which it becomes clear that Kosh has been “tutoring” Sheridan for at least a short while. An interesting comment is later made by Ivanova: “It must be working. You’re beginning to talk just like a Vorlon.”
