Quote: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.
