    The mirror thing is interesting where Bester tries to get into the killer's head and think like him.

    Oh, something else of note from Lurker's: the teep they're chasing is named "Jonathan Harris". That was the name of the contest winner of a raffle. First prize was the winner's name got to be mentioned in an episode

    I really do hope that one day we will get to see the "Telepath War" which JMS has so often alluded to. It has excellent potential if handled properly

    Was this to be another film or something?

    Oh and another bit of trivia that I remembered, not by reading Lurker's, but by being a geek. You guys recall what this intern Chen's last name is?

    I always thought it was an homage to the actor who played "Dr. Smith" in the Lost In Space television show.

    But the key is that it's used in an episode featuring Walter Koenig... :D

    Speaking of homages, remind me to tell you one I just discovered after the episode.

    Franklin's about the only 'mundane' who's not a jerk in this episode.

    Check.

    Now this scene with Dr. Franklin just underscores how hard it is to be at all sympathetic with Bester.

    Zach certainly didn't have to be like that, but ... given what he knows of Bester's actions in the past ... it's hard to blame Zach.

    And Bester once again proves that his arrogant chip makes it impossible for anyone to see his point of view. You get the feeling Zach really was saddened by Chen's death

    Yeah, especially after what happened to Garibaldi.

    A thought just occurred to me. In light of the previous episode, could one consider Bester's attitude and treatment of mundanes to be a sort of "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" response?

    Could be. That's an interesting thought.
