Sheridan's forces attempt to liberate Proxima 3. Londo tries to enlist G'Kar's aid in backing Sheridan against Earth.
Once again the station mobilizes for war. The murder of 10,000 refugees fleeing Proxima 3 has forced Sheridan to decide that it's time to retaliate against Clark.

"We're going to take back our home. Or die trying," Captain Sheridan concludes.

Meanwhile, even though Franklin admits little progress on freeing the Shadow-implanted telepaths, Sheridan demands that he get them mobile as quickly as possible for an imminent mission.

To Ivanova he explains his plan for attacking Proxima 3. By offering the combatants a chance to surrender or defect, he will attempt to minimize the Earth Force losses; nevertheless he will destroy any ship that fights back.

Close quarters maneuvers continue outside under Lt. Corwin's supervision. Ivanova orders the fighters to only accept commands that are encrypted with the code of the day. Corwin remarks that they should trust no one.

"No," Ivanova remarks acerbically. "Trust Ivanova. Trust yourself. Anybody else? Shoot 'em."

G'Kar's writing is interrupted by Mollari's entrance. They take a couple of shots across each other 's bows until Mollari admits that he didn't come to fight but to talk. The past years have been very hard on both of them. G'Kar snorts in derision, but Mollari continues humbly, thanking G'Kar for his actions and endurance that set both of their worlds free, telling G'Kar that he has come to respect him deeply.

G'Kar scorns both the thanks and the respect.

As Mollari waits with glass raised, G'Kar pours his drink back in the bottle. With heavy disappointment, Mollari departs.

The Pollux is destroyed, two vessels stand down, and another withdraws. Fearing a tribunal more than death, Captain Hall orders his crew to continue the fight until his own second relieves him of command and surrenders.
