"Day of the Dead" is an episode from the fifth season of the science fiction television series Babylon 5. It was written by science fiction and fantasy author Neil Gaiman, and is the only episode after the second season not written by J. Michael Straczynski. The episode also features Penn & Teller, who portray comedians Rebo and Zooty. It is a break from the show's usual continuing story arc, though some events do have relevance to the rest of the series.
The dead return for one night during a mysterious Brakiri religious festival: Garibaldi is visited by a ground pounder, Dodger, with whom he almost had a romantic fling three years ago (see Gropos), Londo cherishes a night with his lost love Adira Tyree (see Interludes and Examinations), Lennier tolerates the Shadows' associate Mr. Morden, and Captain Lochley is visited by her friend for whose death she feels responsible. Kosh also delivers a message to Lochley for President Sheridan: "When the long night comes, return to the end of the beginning."
This episode was aired out of chronological sequence, the first and only Babylon 5 episode to be so after Season 2. Chronologically it comes after "A View from the Gallery" and before "Learning Curve".
