They had to let G'kar' world be bombed or they would risk tipping their hand that they knew the Shadows were coming, thus provoking the shadows to attack sooner.
The First Ones are scattered and the Vorlons are not yet motivated to fight......, YET
More is revealed of Delenn and her heritage and her transformation as the series goes on. You should also watch the B5 TV movie In The Beginning then start Season 3
Londo: he wanted power, fame and glory for himself and his people, thus Morden realized he'd be a great puppet for the Shadows as Londo did not stop to think about the PRICE that such pwoer and fame would cost. When Londo finally does figure things out he takes steps to eliminate the threats and distance himself from Morden. Also his partner in crime Lord Reefa is far more guilty then Londo.
Talia's departure does indeed feel forced, but rest assured she is gone. Listen to what Bester tells Sheridan when Sherdian tells Bester that he holds him responsible for what happened to her. All subplots about Talia such as her brainwaves being recorded by the VCR and her upgrade by Ironheart are dropped. Ivanova, yes she is a latent telepath but no she will not take over as the new telepath. Lyta Alexander is coming back. (and there is much rejoicing). As to whether Talia and Ivanova were lovers, it is implied but never stated.
Kosh emerging from his suit to save Sheridan....look closely, everyone sees Kosh as a holy figure from their various religions, Sheridan sees Kosh as an Angel, possibly Gabriel. Only Londo didn't see anything possibly due to his current corruption by the Shadows or else he is not a believer. Kosh will later state that being seen by so many was a major strain on his power reserves. More revelations about this as the series goes.
yes they believe/know Clark is corrupt but in order to stop him you need evidence which is scarce at the moment and Clark has all his people in the right places, and this includes removing a lot of political and legal restraints that kept the Psi Corp in check. it isn't a case of bad acting or story, this is a fight for the future of Earth and beyond so charging in guns blazing just wont work.
Things for Season 3:
Marcus is a regular now. Just wait until he has words with the syndicate in the tavern....
The search for the First Ones begins
Episode 3: a great elevator scene with Londo and G'kar! If you ever had doubts about the hate G'kar has for Londo....
Episode 6: an amped up G'kar decides to have words with Londo....
Episode 9: get ready.....
Ep 15: Sheridan has words with Kosh....
Ep 16 and 17: a two parter that brings Sinclair back. Plot threads are wrapped and others continue.
Ep 20: poetic justice
Also the ISN will go down and come back.....with a dark twist
Edit:. Forgot to ask, what did you think of the Vorlon inquisitor?
Kind of makes you stop and wonder just whether the Vorlon are indeed the "good guys".
