Londo introduces Vir to a surprising new acquaintance. A heavy influx of Narns to the station raises suspicions.
Vir is enjoying a little dream of his own, stroking the imperial trappings as he waits in the throne room for a meeting with a royal councilor. The minister congratulates him on his excellent reports from Minbar, while chiding him for relying on Ambassador Molari's misleading advice in creating them. He then shares a delightful little joke. "What's more dangerous than a locked room full of angry Narns? One angry Narn with a key!" Vir hurries back to his quarters where he steps into a room full of angry Narns.

Susan shares some of her nightmares with the Captain at breakfast, stopping short of describing this morning's. He suggests that her subconscious is lagging behind her intellect in coming to terms with the whopping changes in her status and prospects. But not to worry, it will all pass. Besides, it could be worse, she could be dreaming she was showing up to work naked, he teases her innocently.

Sheridan flirts with Delenn in the corridor, inviting her to dinner that night in the lull before another crisis flattens them all.

Zack apprises Ivanova of an increase in the number of Narns passing through the station with false documentation supplied by Vir. When questioned by her later, Vir stammers that it's for the Narns' own protection, that he's helping them by moving as many as he can to camps on Centauri Prime, where conditions are much better than on the wrecked Narn homeworld.

In a day full of surprises, it is his bride who gives Vir the greatest of them all when she presents him with the second Narn bound and gagged on his chamber floor and ready for him to dispatch. She giggles at his discomfort, explaining that when she lived on Narn after the war she grew used to killing them. He grows more aghast at her callous attitude.

Sheridan becomes somewhat testy to find Ivanova using his office in C & C. But she claims to have found a purpose now, namely, using Vir's false authorization to continue the work of whisking a few Narn to safety.
