BABYLON 5'S B5 SERIES FINALE, "SLEEPING IN LIGHT"

Super massive spoilers if you haven't watched the series!

The series finale. Oh man, if I said that the season 3 finale was the most amazing thing I've ever seen in television, this series finale is the best I've ever seen. ALL THE FEELS. It wraps up everyone's storylines so nicely and you get to see where everyone is at 20 years after 2262; they're older and grayer and they've seen much during those 20 years and here we are with Lorien's words hovering over Sheridan, beckoning him to the end. It's a beautiful goodbye to the series, I can't imagine a better send-off to such a wonderful show.

If you're not tearing up at any point in the series finale, this scene is guaranteed to leave you all ;_; (I was initially going to feature only this scene for this post but there were too many good moments from this episode; nonetheless, this is a very poignant scene):



And the last few minutes of the finale always gives me chills (omg, I'm just re-watching it now and the last bit (around 2:52) is so haunting and sad and lovely):



Ivanova's words at the end were very lovely: "Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope, that there can always be new beginnings. Even for people like us."

This and all the things I've mentioned about the show (see the "Babylon 5" tag below) are all of the reasons why this is my favourite television show of all time <3

The scene of the station exploding/imploding always gives me chills. I will be so sad to get to this episode in the rewatch...

The music for this episode is perfect, the last five minutes really gives me chills every single time. Perfect series finale is perfect <3
