Anything to do with Minbari culture, history, architecture, and ritual is catnip to me. So I love this episode. Actually I hated this episode when I first saw it. I was rather indignant that Delenn would agree to give up John just cause a lot of uptight bigoted Minbari wanted her to. I wanted her to tell them to buzz right off. But I spent a lot of time thinking about how hard it was for her to buck all that tradition, and also to give up all that tradition. Traditions give you structure and membership in a group. And that goes double or triple for a hierarchial society with definitive class distinctions. Delenn's relationship with her own people remains fascinating, even as it evolves. And there is so much here that presages Lennier's eventual fate.

Plus this episode got my son to memorize the lyrics to the 'Major-General's Song' from Pirates.
