Basically, yeah, too much depression and guilt lately, and she's
been for the most part a passive character lately, while others acted
around her. Now it's about time for her to start becoming active again.
There's fire and steel in *use*, and fire and steel waiting to be
called upon...time to shift from the latter to the former.

Exactly. She needed that amount of time, so that's what she
had to have to make it believable. The next logical step is to show
the other parts of her starting to come back into the foreground.

Well, I think it's better for someone to know that first, then
find out about it later. "Oh, good, we're going to spend the rest of
our lives together...oh, by the way, now that you've committed, you
should know...."

Uh, uh.

Well, I think it fair to say that with Delenn starting the
ritual, there had already been kind of an implicit understanding that
this was going to be more than just a fling...and there's still a long
road ahead of them before this can be finalized.
