Season One Episode Descriptions

"The Long Road"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Russell Mulcahy
This is the 2-hour pilot. It introduces the world and characters. 15 years ago, a deadly virus called the Big Death killed everyone on Earth except children who hadn't reached puberty. Jeremiah and Kurdy, survivors of the pandemic, form an unlikely alliance and encounter the beautiful but dangerous female leader of a small-minded town chafing under her autocratic leadership. Meanwhile, Simon, an information gatherer for the "End of the World," tells Jeremiah where to find the mysterious organization.

"Man of Iron, Woman Under Glass"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Brett Dowler
This is a somewhat fanciful tale of a guy who grew up after the Big Death believing that some day the super heroes he read about as a kid would come back and fix things, and a tale of a most unusual romance between a main character - Marcus Alexander, head of what was once the NORAD Thunder Mountain complex - and a woman whose existence has been kept secret from everyone for years.

"And the Ground, Sown with Salt"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski (as Fettes Grey)
Director: Peter Deluise
This episode chronicles happens when, after the Big Death, a group moved into an abandoned Air Force base and decided to use those resources for their own destructive aims. It is a very intense episode guest starring Jason Priestley as Michael, a man who has proclaimed himself a god and plans to take over the entire nation, beginning with the End of the World. "Tribes" was the working title of this episode. This is one of Straczynski's favorite episodes of the first season.

"To Sail Beyond the Stars"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Neill Fearnley
A young woman named Claire has been stealing whatever gas can be found here and there because she intends to be the first one since the Big Death to sail (with backup gas engines) beyond the horizon to find out what happened on the other side of the world. Jeremiah faces a deadly renegade group called the "Burners" while falling in love with Claire. Meanwhile, Kurdy befriends a pregnant woman and delivers her baby. Guest starring Melissa Creider.

"The Bag"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Michael Robinson
Farralon, the son of a medical doctor has set up what may turn out to be a dubious medical practice of his own, traveling with his brother from town to town and exploiting people... and finds that his past catches up with him. Medical secrets are revealed when Jeremiah and Kurdy learn that Farralon has been trying to find a vaccine to cure the Big Death virus by exposing a dying youth named Jimmy to experimental therapy. Guest starring Jake Busey.

"City of Roses"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: James Head
Jeremiah and Kurdy travel in search of more information on the Big Death and Valhalla Sector when a brutal assault on a young woman triggers memories for both of them. Jeremiah searches for a mysterious vaccine while Kurdy discovers some potentially dark secrets about the fate of his parents in the last days of the Big Death.

Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Peter Deluise
Investigating a group known as the orange men, Jeremiah and Kurdy capture Quantrell, an adult survivor who knows a great deal about both Markus and Valhalla Sector. This episode is a mid-season turning point for the characters as they learn something of vital importance about Valhalla Sector. Markus must make a decision that could lead to any number of deaths. Guest starring Michael Rooker. This episode kicks the arc into high gear and is one of Straczynski's favorite episodes of the first season.

"The Red Kiss"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: James Head
When their vehicle is stolen, Jeremiah and Kurdy find themselves in an abandoned amusement park where a group of parents greets them with mixed emotions but the children believe that Jeremiah has been sent to save them from an unseen and deadly predator.

"Journeys End in Lovers Meeting"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Martin Wood
Jeremiah and Kurdy join a group of pilgrims heading west to the ocean where they believe a miracle will occur, but Kurdy has trouble adhering to the sect's vow of non-violence when he discovers hidden danger. This is one of Straczynski's favorite episodes of the first season. Unlike Straczynski's usual writing, this episode is almost fanciful or fairy tale in feeling, but with teeth behind the softness and an ending that he thinks will lead to a lot of heated debate. The crew was knee deep in snow when shooting this episode, and the pure white landscape gives the whole episode an almost unreal quality. Straczynski believes this is one of the best performances to date from Malcolm-Jamal Warner, whose role is very important in this episode.

"Thieves' Honor"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Holly Dale
Jeremiah and Kurdy are sent to Clarefield to rescue Elizabeth and Gabriel, who have been kidnapped by Theo's jocks. Meanwhile investigations get under way to find the traitor who's leaking information from Thunder Mountain.

"The Touch"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Michael Robinson
Kurdy and Jeremiah enter a town where paranoia about the Big Death has led to a death penalty law against touching and sex, a restriction that is fomenting a violent rebellion. Meanwhile, Markus' flu sparks a battle for power.

"Mother of Invention"
Writers: Sara (Samm) Barnes and A. L. Katz
Director: Neill Fearnley
Looking for Steve, the leader of a group Markus may want an alliance with, Jeremiah finds Michelle, his former lover, and her son. Jeremiah and Kurdy must find out if Michelle is rebuilding a world or just piling up a private treasure.

Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Neill Fearnley
Markus begins forging alliances with those strong enough to oppose Valhalla Sector forces, including the residents of the nearby town of Camden, which still contains a nuclear arsenal. The fear that Valhalla Sector may be planning a military takeover raises questions about Jeremiah's father. A sniper and an appearance by Ezekiel add to the tension. This episode is crucial to the story arc.

"Ring of Truth"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Ken Girotti
An encounter with a lost elephant and a fist fight for a woman's freedom involve Jeremiah and Kurdy in a circus and in helping the woman re-connect with her estranged daughter.

"Moon in Gemini"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Brad Turner
Jeremiah and Erin try to help Erin's wayward twin sister, Lauren, who is involved with an abusive boyfriend. Kurdy and Elizabeth challenge the ethics of Shadow of the Crescent, a black separatist group.

"Out of the Ashes"
Writer: Sam Egan
Director: Brad Turner
Kurdy helps a self-appointed librarian learn to read and fend off zealots who are convinced that books are the root of all evil and knowledge caused the Big Death. Jeremiah embarks on an arduous journey with a wheelchair-bound woman determined to deliver her father's ashes to the remote island where she was raised.

"A Means to an End"
Writer: Sara (Samm) Barnes
Director: Mike Vejar
Markus' position as Thunder Mountain's leader is challenged by brothers who are threatened by the decision to introduce outside community leaders to the secret headquarters. One of them has a very personal motive for his actions. Theo appears in this episode. This is a quieter episode that Straczynski promises has one scene that will have just about any SF fan worth his/her salt rolling on the floor.

"Things Left Unsaid, Part One"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Mike Vejar
As Erin and Markus head to St. Louis for a conference, Jeremiah and Kurdy try to find out who cut a page out of Simon's journal - and why. What they learn could put an end to both Thunder Mountain and their partnership. They discover the traitor inside Thunder Mountain and search out the Brothers of the Apocalypse, who finally tell them the truth about the Big Death and the vital importance Thunder Mountain plays in the future of the world. This is part one of the two-part season finale. Theo appears in this episode. Straczynski says, "It's just killer. Of all the things I've ever done, and I'm including B5 in this, on an individual basis this may be the best thing I've ever done, certainly the most ambitious. It's just frikkin' HUGE, the performances are great, the story moves ahead by leaps and bounds, I'm just real happy with it."

"Things Left Unsaid, Part Two"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Mike Vejar
Jeremiah finds the answers he's longed to hear about his father from a guide in Millhaven, a place Ezekial warned him to avoid. This is part two of the two-part season finale. Theo appears in this episode. Straczynski says, "It's just killer. Of all the things I've ever done, and I'm including B5 in this, on an individual basis this may be the best thing I've ever done, certainly the most ambitious. It's just frikkin' HUGE, the performances are great, the story moves ahead by leaps and bounds, I'm just real happy with it."

Was the past the best of times or the worst of times? It depends on who's past. Kurdy has to trust Lee when he returns to a town - and a load of trouble - he left behind while Jeremiah is imprisoned in an idealized replica of the days before the Big Death.

"The Face in the Mirror"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Director: Sean Astin
Big Death survivor Frederick Monash knows something important, and Devon, it seems, knows him. Thunder Mountain wants to find Monash before Daniel's forces can kill him, and Jeremiah wants to know if he can ever really trust his own father.

"State of the Union"
Writer: Sara (Samm) Barnes
Director: Milan Cheylov
Jeremiah joins Kurdy and Mister Smith on what should be a simple job to deliver radios to nearby towns. It is not. Daniel's forces have plans for those radios - and towns - that could bring disaster to the Alliance.

"Interregnum, Part One"
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
