It should have always been a threesome ... with all the religious overtones, it was a natural. A Jesuit in charge of the Mimbari! What fun!
I love the Za Ha Dum ep, too. The scene you describe is about as creepy as it gets, the wife who isn't your wife coming to get you and turn you into a ...thing, ugh. My fav ep was the end of the Mimbari civil war. I just love the character of Neroon, his journey, his enlightenment, and finally, his sacrifice, saving DeLenn and the entire Mimbari people.
That said, I think the greatest story was told in the movie, "In the Beginning". Fabulous story telling and so integral to the story arc. Londo is such a fascinating character.
As to the final episode, I may have shed a manly tear or two .. it's that damn music, so full of pathos and loss, you'd have to be dead (or deaf) to not be affected.
