Яппаньки вам,уважаем(ый)(ая)(ое)!

He'd known, somehow, within moments of seeing her. Despite that knowledge, a flicker of hope remained that some bit of her still survived. Each time he was with her, that hope died anew, and the desire to confront those who had committed this abomination grew stronger.

Yet he did not go to Z'ha'dum because of that.

He knew the enemy had sent her as a trap. He knew that the story his wife told, of her friendly relationship with the approachable aliens, was false. He did not believe her claim that the enemy wanted only to tell their side of the story. He was not deluded by their deceit.

He did not go to Z'ha'dum because of that.

Kosh had once told the Human that if he went to Z'ha'dum, he would die. It was not in Sheridan's nature to accept such pronouncements without question. He had challenged Kosh's judgment before. But Sheridan himself knew that if he went to Z'ha'dum, he would very likely die. And he did not want to die.

He did not go to Z'ha'dum because of that.

The return of Sheridan's wife had eroded his trust in Kosh and Delenn; he was less and less inclined to accept what he'd been told and follow the path worn through history by those who had played his role. In that, Kosh found hope that this war might end differently than all the rest. Sheridan sought his own truths, his own role, his own path.

But even so, that was not the whole of the reason that he went to Z'ha'dum.

Sheridan had come to believe that avoiding the stronghold of the ancient enemy would lead to, at best, an incomplete victory, one in which the maelstrom would retain the strength to cause continued devastation to the younger races. Not only did Sheridan seek true understanding of this conflict, he wanted to minimize the harm to the younger races and end the cycle of war
