    Okay, so when you first watched this episode, did you know or at least suspect who the inquisitor sent by the Vorlons really was?

I don't think I did.

    I sure did. When he revealed WHEN he was from and where and the way he expressed contempt as he looked at the society on the station and felt nothing had changed I just knew who he was.

It was some brilliant writing, I think.

    I was still flabbergasted at the reveal/confirmation of his I.D at the end and given who he really is that really does paint the Vorlons in a very suspicious light. That these so called benevolent yet manipulative aliens would employ such a person as their inquisitor/agent is both clever and dastardly at the same time. To this day his final words as he leaves and confirms who he is/was......still a well done and creepy scene.

I don't think the Vorlons are benevolent though of course they pretend to be. Order and Chaos are a different dichotomy from Good and Evil. By no means should the Vorlons be trusted implicitly. Only if there is no other choice should they be accommodated at all.

    Seems almost a shame that the Inquisitor never got to face off against Mr. Morden.....that would be interesting.

Sure would!

    And for those that do not know what I am speaking of:
