I've just watched Babylon 5 Season 5 Episode 8, "Day of the Dead", in which a Brakiri festival causes a number of dead people to reappear and visit those inside the 'Brakiri zone' with whom they have some kind of unfinished business. Specifically:
- Captain Lochley is visited by a close friend from her young wild days, whom she found dead in their flat and never knew whether it was accident or suicide.
- Londo Mollari is visited by his lover Adira, who was murdered on her way to come and see him (sparking off a whole series of other significant events for the Centauri).
- Mr Garibaldi is visited by the marine Dodger, with whom he almost began a relationship before she went and got killed in action.
- Lennier is visited by the late Mr
Slimy BastardMorden, an agent of the Shadows whom, as far as I remember, he'd never actually met while he was alive.
Why did Mr Morden, of all people, appear to Lennier? All the other visits we saw were, to quote Captain Lochley, "intensely personal". Surely someone close to Lennier has died at some point? Why did he have the misfortune of being visited by one of the most unpleasant characters in the show?
